My new journey with 100% Pure Essential Oils

If you are looking for an all natural way to help strengthen, protect, support, soothe, and invigorate your body Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils can help!

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils can lift the mood, calm the senses, and elicit powerful emotional responses. Yet the use of Essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal.

Essential Oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Their unique chemical structure allows them to pass directly through the skin for immediate systemic response to topical application. Certain oils may be used as a dietary aids to help promote vitality and well being.

doTERRA is committed to providing a pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualitites and are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.

If you were like me, I was really curious what these oils were all about. I kept hearing about how they can help so many things like seasonal allergies, digestion issues, women's hormonal imbalance, helping metabolism, detoxing, soothing inflammation and so much more! After a client of mine shared with me how they have really helped her and her family I decided to dive in. I wish I had started so much sooner!!

Some of my absolute favorites are the Blends which are a great starting point since they have targeted wellness applications.

 I think this is such a neat example of how your cells react to Balance Essential Oil.

-Balance ( Grounding Blend )- Features Spruce, Ho wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and blue chamomile essential oils. It has an amazing warm, woody aroma that created a sense of calmness and well being. It promotes relaxation and evokes feelings or tranquility and balance. Who doesn't need that?! I apply a drop or two on the bottom of both feet in the morning and at night.

- ClaryCalm- Women's monthly blend- helps manage the symptoms of PMS and the transitional phases of menopause in a natural, safe, effective way. Features Clary Sage, Lavender, Bergamot, Roman Chamomile, Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Fennel, Palmarosa, Carrot seed, and Vitex essential oils. It helps balance your hormones and it's amazing for temporary relief of cramps and hot flashes. I apply the rollerball to my abdomen and back of my neck once daily.

- Slim and Sassy- Metabolic Blend- Helps support your weight management goals with this blend of essential oils- Grapefruit, lemon, Peppermint, Ginger, and cinnamon. It helps manage sugar cravings and calms your stomach. I put two drops in a GLASS of water between meals. (It is super important to drink the ingestable essential oils in glass not plastic to absorb the benefits of the essential oil.)

Less is Always more! Essential Oils are very concentrated, so with most you only need a single drop or two. Most are even diluted with fractionated coconut oil if you have sensitive skin or for use on small children or babies. It's amazing such a small amount can provide such amazing benefits!

Essential Oils Safety: I can only speak for the use of doTERRA Essential oils. I know there are many essential oils available but I am only confident in the supporting use of doTERRA. Essential Oils are naturally safe and have few, if any, undesirable side effects when used as directed. They are however, powerfully concentrated and should be used with care. Be sure to only use pure, therapeutic grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions. Essential oils should never be used in the eyes or inside of the ear canal. If redness or irritation occurs when you essential oils topically, simply apply a carrier oil, such a fractionated coconut oil to the affected area- water will not dilute essential oils. Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor's care. Look for the the following symbols by the product description and it will give you the appropriate precautions on individual essential oil labels.

Here is some great tips on application:

I will do an additional post on the use and safety of essential oils during pregancy and babies, because its important to know proper dilution for babies and which few oils to avoid during pregnancy.
Example- you would want to use caution with Peppermint during breastfeeding since it may affect your milk production.

How do I purchase these amazing Oils?

They offer an amazing cost effective way of purchasing the oils at wholesale cost, which is incredible! It's an awesome way to enjoy the oils at a 25% discount without any pressure to sell. I am so glad doTERRA has that option. Membership is a one time $35 fee through your Wellness Consultant and if you purchase one of the great starter kits the $35 fee is waived! This is a great option so you can start with a kit of the most popular oils and learn which ones you use the most and be introduced to the many uses.
