Essential Oil Basics holistically inspired living

Knowledge is power. Information is liberating.

where did wellness from plants originate?

Aromatherapy (the use of essential oils and plant extracts) has been a subject of interest for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks, Romans, Chinese, and Indians used essential oils for rituals and religious practices, recognizing the oils’ ability to influence human feelings. Even with this rich history of aromatherapy, the term wasn’t officially coined until the 20th century, and it took many years for the scientific community to recognize the emotional benefits of aromatherapy.

After substantial research in the 1990s, biologists began to more fully understand how chemical sensors in the body respond to the effects of scent. This research has opened many minds to a concept that ancient civilizations discovered long ago: aromatherapy can have a remarkable effect on human emotion and mood as well as promote balance and wellness for the physical body.

WHY ARE PEOPLE TURNING TO NATURAL OPTIONS?

In today's healthcare system, more and more people are seeking answers that don't include synthetic or chemically laden medications, and the long list of side effects that accompany them. They are also desiring a more cost-effective approach to their own wellness.

Instead, they are returning to the ancient wisdom of plant medicine and the many POSITIVE benefits that come with a natural, organic and holistic approach to healing their mind, body and spirit.

what are essential oils?

Essential Oils are the natural, aromatic compounds that are found in plants. Most often they are found in the roots, stems, seeds, flowers, bark and they are extracted and distilled for a huge variety of health benefits.

DID YOU KNOW?? Essential Oils have supercharged benefits! In fact, they are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs!

They are very complex and there are multiple compounds in every oil that provide versatile support for your body. This is GREAT NEWS! Because that means that the complexity and chemistry of every oil keeps your body from developing a resistance to it!

WHAT MAKES DOTERRA DIFFERENT

Not ALL essential oils are created equal. Many may even claim 100% pure, or even "organic", but in an industry that is very loosely regulated, this doesn't really hold much weight. In fact, the regulations around essential oil purity are so loose, that doTERRA raised the bar, and holds our oils to the very highest standard, and ensures that the purity and potency of every single batch of our essential oils meet those stringent standards through multiple 3rd party tests that are not even required by the FDA.

You can be assured that every drop of doTERRA essential oil contains no fillers, no synthetics, no contaminants of any kind, and that purity of our oil is BEYOND even "organic" standards. In fact, doTERRA is the only company that offers Source to You, where you can type in the batch number on the bottom of your essential oil bottle and immediately see a full report on the purity and testing of that exact bottle of oil! How amazing is that!

This is WHY doTERRA is the largest essential oil company in the World and continues to be the world's Leader in Quality, Purity and Potency. And it's also why more than 5 million doTERRA customers hold wholesale accounts of their own and continue to order their beloved oils again and again.

what is co-impact sourcing?

doTERRA is dedicated to a powerful sourcing model called Co-Impact Sourcing. Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.

Additionally, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation helps support development projects in sourcing communities. Projects include schools, health clinics, improved infrastructure and clean water systems. EVERY SINGLE BOTTLE OF OIL YOU PURCHASE SUPPORTS COMMUNITIES AND INDIVIDUALS AROUND THE GLOBE!

How Do I Use Essential Oils?

AROMATICALLY

This is the fastest, most effective way to use essential oils. Simply put a few drops into a diffuser, or just directly onto the palms of your hands, then rub together and cup over your nose and mouth and INHALE deeply several times. Used aromatically, essential oils can quickly affect the mood, cleanse the air and even support your respiratory system, and help you breathe so much better!

TOPICALLY

Oils can be applied directly to the area you need them most for fast and effective benefits. You can dilute with a natural carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil for best results. We love applying oils to the bottoms of our feet, our wrists, the inside elbow creases and even directly to the belly or back of the neck depending on where we are needing support.

INTERNALLY

doTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Oils can also be taken internally or sublingually as long as there is a supplement label on the bottle. Some oils are not for internal use. Our favorite ways to use oils internally are in our stainless steel or glass water containers, added to a cup of hot tea, or even a few drops in an empty veggie capsule, or directly under the tongue.

“Choose only one master — Nature.” ~Rembrandt:

Getting Started

You have two options that I recommend the most to get essential oils into your home. You can buy essential oils at retail price, or you can become a wholesale customer (think along the lines of how SAM’s and Costco work…) and get 25% off retail prices!

The wholesale customer is only $35 to join, but if you get a kit that membership fee is waived! I love these kits because they are a sampling of the most widely used essential oils. It gives you the opportunity to get a bundle of essential oils at a huge discount.

Here are my two favorite bundles, however there are many more to choose from or you can create your own bundle.

Creating a Healthy Lifestyle

As a wellness coach, it is my passion to educate others on living a HOLISTIC lifestyle that incorporates all areas of wellness for the mind, the body and the spirit.

Wellness isn't just throwing a few drops of oil on a major health issue and hoping it will disappear. But instead, considering the foundations of a healthy lifestyle, which originate with nutrition as it's core building block.

This lifestyle also includes regular movement through exercise and also helping the body maintain a healthy weight. Getting Plenty of sleep, and managing the stress in our lives is also very key in keeping ourselves balanced and healthy. And eliminating toxins wherever we find them, whether it be in our cleaning cabinet, or in our personal care products is vital in keeping our bodies strong and toxic free.

This step toward incorporating essential oils into your life is a wonderful first step toward being informed and educated in your health care journey and becoming proactive in the steps you will take toward wellness for the rest of your life.
