When you start using essential oils, sometimes it can become really overwhelming and confusing. So much that you may think there is too much to learn, or that you just don’t have time to learn about them. I completely understand that feeling since I was once “new to oils” as well! My goal is to not let anyone feel that way! I am here every step of the way of your oil journey! Even if you are working with someone else, I am still happy to answer questions for you! We are a huge family here and we all have the same goals to share and educate people to care for themselves the best was possible!
During the next few post I am going to break down the essential oils for you and share some really cool and fun things about doTerra essential oils! First, let me set the stage! Essential oils have been around for thousands of years, dating way back to biblical times. They have been used for a wide variety of reasons from healing processes to make up. Essential oils are quickly becoming well known again as people are trying to help cut health care cost and looking for alternative treatments and as we become more aware of the chemicals in household cleaners and other everyday products.
Disclaimer: I am not doctor and I am not here to treat, diagnose or prescribe anything. I am here to share knowledge and to educate you on essential oils and their abilities.
That being said, let’s dive right into the 3 really cool things about doTerra essential oils and the reasons why I love them so much!
They are Natural
Essential oils come from plants, the stem, leaf, flower, bark, roots, etc. They can be stem distilled or cold pressed to remove the oils from these plant parts. The oils come straight from the source here and they are 50- 70 times more powerful than herbs! When herbs are dried they can lose up to 90% of their nutrients. The picture below is from a doTerra class handout that shows the oils sacs on the bottom of a peppermint leaf. These are was are extracted from the peppermint plant to make the essential oil. By doing this, it provides a very potent product! One drop of peppermint essential oil can make 28 cups of peppermint tea! Crazy huh?
They are Effective
When comparing essential oils to over the counter (OTC) meds, it is import and understand the purpose of OTC. Most often times they are prescribed to treat a symptom or illness. If you have a bacterial type of infection you are prescribed an antibiotic, right? If you have a viral infection, they tell you to drink plenty of fluids and to let it run it course. This is because antibiotics are water soluble meaning they cannot penetrate the cell membrane to fight the virus. Essential oils are oils base, just like a cell membrane making it easy for it to penetrate it and help support the natural healing process.
They are Safe
DoTerra sets the bar for the safety of their essential oils. It is important to understand the different grades of oils. The first is synthetic oil which is found is lotions and store-bought candles as well as other household cleaners. Then there is the food grade that you cook with, such as olive oil. The third is the therapeutic grade that is found in spas. They are often not recommending for ingestion or to be used on children. They are also for topical use only. Then the fourth is Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG).
This is a certification that is given to doTerra after the oils have gone through third party testing to ensure it potency and purity. This insures that the oils are the highest quality and safe for the whole family to use. When doTerra puts the oils through this process and the results are anything less than 100% pure, they reject the batch and will not release it to the users. Isn’t that awesome that this company cares so much about not only the product, but about the end users? I think so! I love that doTerra cares enough about us to want to provide me and my family with the best products possible so that we get the best benefits that we can!
