doTERRA Essential Oils
Healing With The Power of Nature
Why Essential Oils?
Christa used essential oils and aromatherapy for several years at home in her own wellness routines before bringing them into her office. The health benefits of these oils have been well known for years and, depending on the oil, have numerous uses.
Using manual muscle testing to select oils that balance different acupressure points, meridians and emotional stress reflexes, Christa has found that they can be a powerful aid in boosting the results of her sessions by giving clients tools easy that they can use as a self care tool at home, based on what makes an actual change. This takes the guesswork out of which oils to use, making for effective pain reduction and health solutions.
What They Are
The Essence of Plants
Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home. Inside many plants, hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, bark, are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds which are where essential oils come from. They give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions and benefits.
While you might think essential oils are a new, hip trend, plant extracts and plant-based products are deeply rooted in the traditions of the past. Essential oils have been used by ancient civilizations across the globe for aromatherapy, personal care, healthcare practices, religious ceremonies, beauty treatments and food preparation.
Historically, essential oils were used as part of cultural practices and traditions. However, we now have increasing scientific evidence and research showing that essential oils can be effectively and safely used in a wider range of day-to-day practices and routines for amazing benefits.
How They Are Used
"There is an oil for that!"
Some essential oils are soothing, toning, and grounding, while others are energizing, warming, and renewing— but all essential oils are natural. The variety of essential oils allows you to naturally and effectively address your specific concerns. With so many essential oils available for almost every health issue you can think of, you can tailor them to your specific wants and needs.
Essential oils are quickly absorbed by smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system, which is the part of your brain that stores memories and emotions. Some essential oils induce uplifting or invigorating effects, while others are more calming.
Essential oils easily penetrate the skin for localized benefits, making topical application a great way to experience the benefits. This is why doTERRA works to create potent essential oils that are powerful, yet gentle enough to use on a daily basis.
Sustainable, Pure and Ethically Sourced
doTERRA's mission is to change the world one drop, one person, one community at a time.
There are several ways to produce essential oils, and not all essential oils are created equal. Some companies choose to cut costs by using low-quality plants or adulterate their oils with cheap substances. While cutting corners might save an essential oil company time and money, it will result in a low-quality oil. Unfortunately, many of the production methods in the essential oil industry can also be harmful to the environment or result in the unfair treatment of farmers and growers.
Every oil sold by doTERRA is responsibly and sustainably sourced. doTERRA focuses on sourcing practices that will produce only the highest quality essential oils—no matter the cost. They make it a top priority to protect the environment during the production process and provide fair treatment of all harvesters and growers.
When you use a bottle of doTERRA essential oil, you’re using an oil that is pure. There are no contaminants, fillers, or adulterations. The essential oil industry did not have standards to ensure purity, so doTERRA created one. Every batch of doTERRA essential oils goes through a rigorous testing process—well beyond what would be considered “good enough.” After that, each oil is sent to an independent third party for further testing and validation.
