Essential Oils

oils

Part of the process of conscious transformation is to use what nature gives us to achieve health and well-being. Essential oils are volatile compounds found in seeds, bark, roots, stems and flowers of plants. Each one has specific properties and can be the perfect allies to balance emotions and calm the senses, but beyond their emotional powers, they are also excellent for their healing properties. They can assist us in different ways such as controlling appetite, balancing hormones, detoxing of the body, reducing pain and immunological strengthening.*

 

The ancient alchemists called them “the soul of the plants” for this reason they have been used throughout history in pharmaceuticals, body and beauty products and cleaning products among others.

I must confess that when I started using oils, a few years ago, I only limited myself to aromatherapy. For many years I had an oil burner and bought oils with delicious smells. I did not think much about quality or brand because it did not seem relevant to me. After starting this path of holistic health, my vision changed completely. I realized that what I thought were essential oils were only oils diluted with other low-quality oils and chemical components that imitated aromas and masked odors. The truth is these fake aromas were negatively affecting my health. There is growing evidence that artificial air fresheners, many beauty products, perfumes and household cleaning products (to name a few) are scented with substances that generate hormonal imbalances, cause negative effects on the brain and even allergic reactions. Having this knowledge, motivated me to study and educate myself about the innate power of essential oils. I took the time to research brands, quality standards and decided to use doTERRA products for their high-quality standards.

Why doTERRA

 

When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy.

Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.

While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques.

I am happy to say I am a doTERRA Wellness Advocate. After using them (some of them daily), I can say with confidence that they support my health in many ways that I would love to share with you.

Some ways I use doTERRA essential oils

 

I use them in different ways, but I share some with you:

 

  • I prepare my own deodorant using lavender oil (for the soothing effects).
  • Enhance the body moisturizer with mint and geranium oils (stimulating and natural energizer to start the day)
  • Prepare a natural insect repellent with eucalyptus, melaleuca and cedar oils (instead of the toxic chemicals found in commercial repellents).
