My love affair with doTERRA essential oils started in May 2016.
I had used essential oils in the past but I didn't really know what they were and how they worked and I didn't know that the ones I were using weren't as pure as I thought they were.
Essential oils are pure plant power. They are volatile aromatic compounds (which are teeny tiny molecules of magic) that give our bodies protection, work synergistically with our brain chemistry via the olfactory nerve and help with repair and regeneration.
Plants make essential oils as part of their own 'defence and repair' mechanism and when the oils are extracted from the plants using gentle steam distillation or cold pressed extraction methods, the precious chemistry in the oils that protects the plants, stays intact. This means when we use essential oils containing the plant chemistry or compounds on ourselves, we get wonderful benefits for our wellbeing - physically and emotionally.
My passion for doTERRA is partly to with the fact that they are passionate about producing essential oils that are 100% pure and incredibly potent (this means all that precious chemistry is kept intact) and because of this, the oils work!
doTERRA source their oils impeccably (no pesticides or herbicides used) from wherever the plants grow indigenously or wherever they thrive best; they test every single batch rigorously (including third party testing) so that the purity and potency is guaranteed with every delicious drop you use. The detail and care that goes into the production of each oil is centered around people (not just you and me, the users and beneficiaries of these oils but also the people who are growing and harvesting and distilling these oils for us.

And so to the essential oils themselves...
Perhaps you might already know how to use essential oils:
Peppermint to help reduce bloating or gas, and to aid with clear breathing, to help reduce feelings of tension
Lavender to help ease the discomfort of itchy skin, or for its calming sedative effects on our nervous system
Melaleuca (or Tea Tree) as a first aid for skin
But did you know what these other oils can do:
Clary Sage to help provide comfort from pre-menstrual symptoms
Bergamot to help reduce stress and anxiety
Vetiver to help with the best night's sleep ever!
Marjoram for muscular aches and strains
Frankincense for incredible, regenerative skin support
I could go on...
But instead I would be delighted if you'd join one of my classes about essential oils to learn more. I go into much more detail about how essential oils work in our bodies and what you can use each oil for in your life.
