doTERRA therapeutic grade essential oils In other words, “the medicine in my medicine cabinet” !! doTERRA essential oils could easily be the answer to all of our bodily and emotional worries. Or they could prevent these worries in the first place.
I’ll tell you a little bit about how they have worked for myself and for others in a bit, but here’s for the basics…
First things first- what are essential oils?
They are aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other various parts of plants.
The oil is extracted vi a low-heat steam distillation process, where steam is circulated under pressure through plant material liberating the essential oils into the steam. As the steam mixture cools, the water and oils are separated and the oil is collected in its pure form.
So, what is the doTERRA advantage, compared to other essential oil carriers?
Not many oils meet the rigorous testing standards for chemical composition as do they ;) !
They’re cross tested using mass spectrometry and has chromatography to ensure both extract purity and composition potency of each batch.
doTERRA works closely with a global network of chemists and growers to select botanicals of the correct species, grown in the ideal environments, and carefully harvested at the right time… beat that!!!
They represent the safest and most beneficial oils available in the world today.
The Essential Oils that you find in your health food store today are most likely safe for aromatic uses, but not topically and internally. But hey, you don’t really wanna be smelling something and filling the air with something that you can’t take into your body right…
And finally…THE USES of essential oils (although they are endless) ((and this can only begin to explain))
They are usually administered in one of three ways: diffused aromatically, applied topically to the skin, or taken internally as dietary supplements.
They are made up of tiny particles that are healing, regenerating, invigorating, and immune strengthening. They are easily taken in and assimilated in the body. So many products available today in powder and pill form have either been sitting on a shelf for years or take long to actually work. Essential Oils start working right away.
When we have any nutritional deficiency…digestive illness, skin issues like acne, a decrease in energy, among others…. if you add essential oils into your body the necessary oxygen and nutrients to the cells will be stimulated and your immune system and body will begin functioning at its optimal potential again! BOOM
Essential oils can work for us as antibacterials, antifungals, antimicrobial, antitumor, cancer fighters, antiparasitic, antiviral, and antiseptic.
They are antioxidants.
They can kill bacteria.. and quick!
Each individual oil has its own unique uses. For example, peppermint or fennel essential oil can get rid of a stomach ache within minute. Lavender essential oil can be used to calm reactions to bites, to ease motion sickness, on chapped lips to restore CHI (life force in yogi terms!) Lemon essential oil can be used to soothe a sore throat, to clean kitchen counters, or just to have an immune enhancer in water.
You can browse the doTERRA catalog to find out the many, many uses and different oils available. Just click the pdf for the 2013 Virtual Catalog. If you don’t feel like browsing, don’t worry- I’ll be posting blog articles on oils and my experiences with them so you can learn from me!!
my favorite oils… as of now ;-)
Which oils are in my “medicine counter”?
It’s growing it’s growing! I honestly want them all and I have a package in the mail with lots more coming.. but my favorites.. as of now..
DigestZen…I don’t know what I would do without it. Gets rid of stomach aching, cramping, bloating, gas, etc- within minutes. I just add a couple drops of it into drinking water when I feel a sour tummy coming on and VOILA! Highly recommended.
Oregano Oil: highly, highly anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and my favorite: anti-yeast. Used for skin issues, digestive issues, immune function… What you may not know about me is that I have been through lots of healing, detoxing, and regenerating due to the presence of yeast and parasites in my digestive tract. Unfortunately many women in todays society struggle with this issue- whether they know it or not. Along with holistic and Ayurvedic methods, stress relief, yoga, meditation, and self-love I have been able to control this issue and I can put my word on it that oil of oregano has been a huge player and reactor in my body to help ease these unwanted symptoms out!!!
ClearSkin… the main ingredient in here is Melaleuca or what you may have heard of- Tea Tree Oil. It has honestly been a savior with my skin breakouts! You’d think adding extra oil to the skin would clog it even more- but it actually works in the opposite way. Melaleuca reverses the bacteria and stops it in its place. (I’ll talk more about this soon!!!)
