An essential oil is the natural aromatic compound found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They not only give plants their distinctive smells but they provide the plants with protection against predators and disease. These properties have also been found beneficial to humans. Essential oils have been used through the centuries for their medicinal and therapeutic purposes and have no nasty side effects.
Modern scientific studies and trends toward prevention of disease and a holistic approach have renewed interest in the applications of essential oils. Most of the oils are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, and even anti-carcinogenic.
I’m an Independent Product Consultant with a company called dōTERRA , which is Latin for Gift of the Earth. dōTERRA supplies us with the highest quality essential oils in the world. They’re Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, guaranteed to be 100% pure & natural, free of any pesticides, herbicides, fillers or any other synthetic contaminant. They can be used aromatically, topically, and even internally. It is very important when applying oils to your skin (the largest organ of your body) or taking them internally that you choose the highest quality.
Not all that is sold as an essential oil is pure or even natural for that matter. Be certain to you read your labels. I have chosen to work with dōTERRA because of the quality of the oils and the tremendous training and support.
There have been thousands of medical studies that have been done to prove the powerful therapeutic benefit of these oils. They can also be used to improve your environment when used in cleaning in the place of toxic chemicals. This is one of the first areas where I became interested in what the essential oils had to offer because I didn’t like the effects of all the cleaning chemicals. I have always avoided the cleaning aisle at the grocery store. Now I don’t have those problems because I use the oils to clean with as well.
If you are looking for a way to live a naturally healthier lifestyle I hope you will give me a call so we can talk about the role essential oils can play. I will take the time to help you explore the possibilities and decide what role you would like essential oils to play in your life.
