WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
God’s gift to us.
Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home.
Inside many plants—hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, bark—are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These natural compounds are essential oils.
Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions and benefits.
The 3 ways to use
Using essential oils aromatically can influence you in a myriad of ways. Our sense of smell affects the stimulation of hormones and other metabolic processes through physiological pathways. Aromatherapy is founded on the body’s response to specific olfactory stimuli. Traditionally, aromatic usage has been aimed at improving a person’s mood. Emotional stability can have countless benefits on your life every. single. day.
You can actually apply oils directly to the skin. For children and people with sensitive skin, you’ll want to dilute them with fractionated coconut oil. It’s just as effective; it just takes a little longer to absorb.”
You can even apply oils to the bottoms of your feet – including babies – and it won’t bother them. The pores on the bottom of your feet are really big and the oil absorbs very quickly into the bloodstream. It’s a great way to get oils into your system fast.
These essential oils are not only safe to use internally, they are RECOMMENDED. The CPTG standard means these oils are a medicinal grade, and are completely safe to ingest – unlike most other brands. You can put them in your mouth or drink them in water. If you don’t like the taste, put them in a veggie capsule. It’s like concocting your own little natural remedy.
The uses you will find here are just the tip of the iceberg!!
The overwhelming amount of essential oils on the market today can make choosing a brand seem complicated. Let’s break it down below.
The Purity Standard
There is no governing body overseeing the essential oil industry. So that means there is no reason for a brand to be honest about what is in that bottle of 100% pure frankincense they’re selling for $7. This is why doTERRA created the Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade stamp of quality (CPTG) so that you know doTERRA stands for having the highest quality, highest purity and most sustainably sourced essential oil in the world.
The Co-Impact Sourcing Model
The way that doTERRA sources is actually the most expensive way to do it … but it’s the right way. They source globally where the plants are meant to grow and not only that, they work WITH the farmers there to create a better economy. There is a dark side in the essential oil industry where most brands are using middlemen to rob the global farmers of their potential. doTERRA’s model creates global abundance. You’ll want to read look around on Source to You for more on this.
