What IS an essential oil?

Essential oils are naturally occurring aromatic compounds distilled or cold-pressed from plants. Essential oils are the plant’s protection. So when we use them, they do the same for us as our bodies are created to thrive when using plant material. They interact directly with our cells to provide us with health benefits that affect all body systems. A beautiful symphony! Despite the new excitement around oils, they have been used since the beginning of time in food preparation, beauty practices, aromatherapy and healthcare practices.

3 Simple Ways To Use Oils

Aromatically

When you inhale an essential oil, the molecules directly interact with your brain! Our sense of smell is so powerful! Aromatic use is the quickest way to affect your mood. Some oils relieve stress, provide calming effects while others are more energizing and stimulating. You choose!

You can simply take a drop in your hands and breathe it in or put the essential oils in a diffuser and enjoy the aroma in your home, your car or your workplace.

Topically

Applying oils to your skin is very effective for all ages! They absorb quickly and circulate throughout your body to provide support throughout your entire body within minutes. You can choose to use a carrier oil to slow dilute the oils and make it easier to spread the oils out or massage into specific problem areas. The feet and the spine are my favorite ways to use the oils topically for our entire family. So effective!

Internally

Because of the purity and amount of testing doTERRA does on their oils, they are the only brand I recommend using internally. Internal usage can provide powerful cleansing benefits and digestive support to your entire body. I must stress that ONLY doTERRA oils can be used internally because of the rigorous 3rd party testing done. They publish the results of their testing online at sourcetoyou.com for the consumers to see and have absolute certainty of their product.

Lifelong Vitality Pack

These supplements are really important. They are our #1 product for a reason!

Did you know that 95% of the vitamins on the market are synthetic? Meaning, they were made in a lab by a human? Our bodies do NOT know what to do with those.

 

doTERRA has developed this beautiful vitamin pack that is highly absorbable whole food and fish oils! Our bodies thrive when fueled properly. These have made the biggest difference in my mood and overall energy. Lifelong Vitality should be a baseline for every BODY and using the oils just makes everything better. My husband and daughter now take them as well. We will never stop! If you want to make the biggest difference in your health, try them for a month. There’s even a money back guarantee!
