Essential Oil Basics

Are you ready to bring essential oils into your home for you and your family? It’s no secret they have gained popularity in the last decade. Most people I speak with are ready to have an all natural solution in their home that they can use for many, if not most of, their family’s health challenges.

Essential Oils have become a staple in my family’s toolbox of health care and self care options. As we moved towards creating a cleaner, non-toxic environment for our family to live, we chose certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils that give us peace of mind when using them with our kids.

We use essential oils for…

  • our homemade cleaning products
  • our homemade body care products
  • to enhance the flavour of our meals
  • to create non-toxic aromas in our home
  • to support our physical health & emotional well-being

So what are essential oils? Technically, they are natural aromatic compounds. They are found in the flowers, seeds, barks, leaves, resin, stems, roots and other parts of plants. Highly concentrated, they are powerful and can be incredibly safe and effective if used correctly to support the health of individuals.

Oh yes, my friends, there IS a difference.

Just like there is a difference in the quality of your food, there is a difference in the quality of your essential oils. In other words, purchasing essential oils from a health food store, Walmart, or other online or retail establishments, you may not be getting what you think you are paying for. Most essential oil companies use fillers, additives or chemicals to make their products smell like essential oils…but sadly their quality is just not the same.

  • dōTERRA sources their oils from all over the world, only sourcing plants from their native environment. This significantly increases the therapeutic benefit of the oil for you and your family
  • dōTERRA works with the growers and harvesters who for generations, have passed down their knowledge of how to cultivate exceptional quality plants for essential oils
  • dōTERRA refuses to compromise quality for profit. They will only grow and source sustainably and if a crop is in danger, they will temporarily remove that oil from the market until it can once again be sourced responsibly
  • dōTERRA tests their oils nine different ways to ensure their quality and then those oils are further tested by a third party for further examination. Also, every single batch is tested!
  • dōTERRA’s oils are 100% pure, meaning they are exactly what it says on the bottle. No fillers, additives, pesticides, herbicides, or anything other than pure essential oil.
