I started using essential oils in this year. It wasn’t very long I wanted to shout from the rooftops how amazing these oils are.  They worked for me and my family.

True quality. Nothing like what you get at the health food store. (Which is where I bought my oils before I found dōTerra). Now I can spot noticeable differences in the way those health food store essential oils smell.  They have a definite chemical smell.  I have learned much about how to use oils for our every day medical issues and cleaning.

Then I started using them, and my family and friends started using them….I want EVERYBODY to know what a great product these trusted oils are.

I want to help YOU get healthier and your family get healthier.

What are Essential Oils and How to I use them?

What are Essential Oils

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health care practices.

 

Why DoTERRA Essential Oils Products?

When you choose dōTERRA®, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. Each dōTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade dōTERRA essential oils.

 

How Do I Use Essential Oils?

Aromatic

Essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air.

Topical

Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and many can be safely applied topically when used in conjunction with a carrier oil, such as Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Internal

Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions.

Doterra essential Oils

Lavender– this calming oil is great for your skin and helps begin to heal burns within hours! Just apply 1 drop right on the burn! Also great for many other skin conditions and to calm your mood or promote restful sleep.

Peppermint– this oil is great to help ease headaches and migraines – just rub a drop on the back of your neck, on your temples and forehead to help relieve the pain. Also great to help sooth your digestive system. Or use it as a great pick me up to stay awake!

Lemon: Lemon oil is highly alkaline and is a great oil to drink in your water everyday because it helps to detox your organs! Use 3-5 drops for every 16 ounces. Lemon is also great to help ease a sore throat and combat allergies.

Melaleuca or Tea Tree oil: This oil is great for your skin and highly anti-fungal! Use it as a first aid oil and to treat dry skin, rashes, bug bites and other skin conditions. 1 drop goes a long way!

Frankincense: This is a favorite of mine! It is universal and can be used for a wide variety of things. Put a couple of drops under the tongue every day to help with thyroid issues, put on your skin daily to combat age spots, wrinkles and acne and rub on the back of your neck to help with emotional disorders like depression or anxiety.

Oregano: This is the Grandaddy of essential oils! Use it to help fight off viruses and infections by putting a few drops of it inside an empty veggie capsule and taking it internally every few hours. Oregano helped me get rid of a bladder infection within hours. This stuff is the real deal!

Clary Sage: This is a favorite oil of women since it helps ease symptoms of PMS, menstruation and menopause. I recommend rubbing this oil right on the abdomen to help period symptoms subside. This is also a great oil for new moms as it helps soothe hormones and stimulate breast milk supply!

Lemongrass: This oil is great for joints and ligaments. Rub right on the area of concern every day to help with symptoms. Also a great oil to take internally to help regulate your system.

Eucalyptus: Use this one to help with your respiratory system! This is a great one to use in the diffuser when you are sick or are having a hard time breathing due to congestion or allergies. Also rub on the chest to help open lungs to promote easier breathing.

Helichrysum: This healing oil is really good for anything skin related. If you need something to heal, put a drop of this oil on the area a few times a day. It is great at repairing anything that needs fixing.

Please always remember that some oils need to be diluted before using and not all are safe for children.
