essential oils

Most of us are familiar with the following; Feeling informed and curious about our wellbeing but lacking the right tools to feel better in our bodies. I have long wanted to provide the tools for us because I could relate to that struggle.

Most of my life I felt a deep pull to help those around me, to bring their attention to the tools & solutions that would improve their day to day life. When I discovered doTERRA essential oils I was instantly sold on their promise. Their promise of wellbeing, of natural health, and of giving back. I had no idea prior that empowered living could start with something as small as a 5ml bottle.

After suffering a burn out from being unaligned in a decade long career and managing an anxiety disorder the better part of my life, I was ready for alternative solutions that addressed my triggers: Stress, unfulfilment, and frustration.  That’s when my friend Solmaz introduced me to The Oils. Unaware at the time of the impact they would have, but very open to their possibilities, I purchased a starter kit of the Top 10 Oils and a diffuser from her. The rest is history, as they say. Solmaz introduced me to my future story. One where I would be able to help myself, my family, and serve those around me on their paths, bettering their lives.

My husband (a conservative minded Engineer by trade, who has expressed many times loving the benefits of these effective essential oils) and I have adopted the oils into our daily lives in many ways including nightly diffusing a blend of Lavender and Frankincence and applying them topically for a bevy of solutions, including relieving muscle aches or calming nerves on any given day.

What are essential oils?

A highly concentrated plant component before they are in any way an oil, essential oils are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds which are sourced from the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.

Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, they protect plants and play a role in their pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to said plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

What is a volatile aromatic compound? Small organic molecules that tend to change state quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. These unique properties make essential oils ideal for applications inclusion in aromatherapy – using these compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications. Even with pure essential oils the composition of the oil can vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather, making every step of the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil product.

dõTERRA oils are in a league of their own. They are the most effective essential oils because of where they’re sourced. Because of the research each bottle goes through by a 3rd party lab. Because of the care and attention that goes into their sourcing, and last but not least because the heart-centered people shaping the brand.
