I was never into essential oils when I was growing up. I remember my Mum was a big fan of lavender but that was it. I thought essential oils were for hippies and my family didn’t fall into that category! And then a few years ago, on my own wellness journey I discovered dōTERRA essential oils. The respiratory blend (also called Easy Air) really helped me when I was recovering from post-viral chronic fatigue (read about my health journey here). I started to research more (I’m a scientist, I don’t just take things on face value!) and my journey using essential oils began. These oils are just too good not to share so let me tell you a little bit more about them and the company.
What is an Essential Oil?
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.
dōTERRA (CPTG)® essential oils represent the safest, purest, and most beneficial essential oils available today. They are gently and skillfully 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.
Pure extracted essential oils can be 50-70 times stronger than the plant source that they come form. Did you know that one drop of dōTERRA peppermint essential oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea! dōTERRA essential oils can have a really positive impact on our emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
Ethics and integrity are SO important to me. Here are my 3 top reasons why you should use dōTERRA essential oils. Click on the below video for further information.
- All dōTERRA essential oils are grown indigenously in their land of origin. Lavender for example is grown in France, whilst Vetiver is grown in Haiti. This means the plants thrive as they are in their natural environment.
- All dōTERRA essential oils are certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG). This means they are guaranteed to be 100% pure and natural and free of synthetic compounds or contaminates. They are subjected to rigorous independent mass spectrometry and gas chromatography testing to ensure extract composition and activity. There are no fillers or additional compounds in your bottle of essential oil, just 100% pure dōTERRA essential oil.
- dōTERRA helps the farmers, community and workers where the oils are grown. They have set up the Healing Hands Foundation to bring healing and hope to the world.
If you would like to know more about the oils, I offer free essential oil wellness consults via Skype where we discuss your health concerns and how the oils may assist on your journey to recovery. I also run workshops and 121’s to discuss more about how to use the oils, including how you can use them in food.
Yes, that’s right-they are so pure you can add (a lot of them) to your food.
