doTERRA Essential Oils Are Very Powerful
Essential oils are concentrated, hydrophobic liquids or compounds that are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of the plant. Once extracted, the oils carry the distinctive scent or essence of their plant. Essential oils can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant.
However, in addition to giving plants their unique and distinctive smells, essential oils also have hundreds of therapeutic and even natural qualities. After trying doTERRA oils, I am convinced that they are very high quality and can provide a wonderful solution to many health problems.
They can help your body heal itself. Plus, I love that they give me another option of something to try, especially on all the little health problems our children have... things that you wouldn't normally go to a doctor for but would just suffer through.
There are very few health conditions that doTERRA oils can't help improve or eliminate.
It’s So Easy To Use Essential Oils
There are so many ways that essential oils can be used or administered. You can apply a single oil or a complex blend, depending on your desired benefits.
Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements.
Several of my children won't swallow a pill so I love that they don't have to with doTERRA. It's so easy to just put a drop ofon the bottoms of their feet to support their immune system, rub Digestive Blend on the tummy if they have an upset stomach or roll In Tune Focus Blend down their back if they need help focusing on something.
Diffuse Them In The Air
When we inhale essential oils, they go directly to our brain and this can have an immediate, powerful impact on how we feel.
- Are you feeling overwhelmed or want to create a calm atmosphere in the room? Diffuse (My sister-in-law has nicknamed "happy juice").
- Have a cough or are stuffy? Diffuse by your bed at night and you will notice a big difference the next day.
- Can't sleep? Try one of these oils.
- Want to unwanted odors and many airborne pathogens? Diffuse .
You can see links at the bottom of this page of all the things doTERRA Essential Oils can help you with.
Put Them On Your Skin
Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can safely be applied topically.
Application of essential oils has immediate, localized benefits to whatever area you are applying and targeting. The chemical structure of essential oils also allows them to be absorbed immediately into your bloodstream via your skin for internal benefits throughout your entire the body.
If you burn your skin, applyright away and watch it disappear. They also have calming and restorative properties and can be used effectively to help you relax or as an enhancement to your massage and beauty therapy practices.
Speaking of topically, where is the best place to put the oils on your skin?
Foot reflexology is probably the most common way to apply the oils. This is because there are points on the bottom of your feet that correspond to every part of your body.
So, you can put the oils on your big toe and have them go directly to your brain within a matter of minutes. This is also a safer way to apply the oils for children (you may or may not want to dilute the oils first).
I also think it's a good place to put the oils if you are going into public and are using "stinky" oils. For example, when my son puts In Tune on, it helps him focus, but the problem is that kids complain that he stinks. So I just put the oils on his feet and no one can smell them.
That being said, I think some essential oil users think that the feet are the only place you can put essential oils on your body. So not true. I have had good luck putting them on the base of the neck to support breathing, on the stomach for digestion support. When I use, I like to put it on my wrist so I can take a whiff of it whenever I want.
You can't ingest just any brand of essential oil. doTERRA oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG), which means they have been gently and skillfully distilled from plants grown in their native climates and do not have added chemicals.
Each batch is carefully tested to make sure they are pure and free from anything harmful. Many essential oils are generally regarded as being safe for dietary use, but some oils should not be taken internally.
Not sure where to start with ingesting oils? doTERRA has their most popular internal oils in capsules now -, , cleansing blend, allergy blend, OnGuard+ softgels to boost the immune system and detoxing blend.
