The benefits of using essential oils
Back in September I found myself in the US surrounded by 40 000 strangers wondering what on earth am I doing here?I was thousands of miles away from my children … In Salt lake city, which, let’s just say is not a destination top of my list … Jet lagged and spending hundreds of ££ on a very mediocre hotel.
WHY WAS I HERE?
Then THE convention started. The speakers. The doctors. The scientists. The stories of the people helped. The charities that doTERRA partner with. The growers from over 40 different countries.
And I realised why I was there. I was there to learn about the importance of quality, the purity of medicinal grade essential oils and about aligning with a company who never cuts corners. Whose beliefs match mine, even if it’s a longer harder route (which it almost always is!)
Everything doTERRA does is for the empowerment of people, whether it’s 3rd world farmers or a desperate mum seeking a remedy, or someone in a job they hate looking for an alternative way to make a living.
So what are the benefits of using essential oils? Very simply unless you are confident about the quality and potency of the essential oil you’re purchasing NONE.
Most oils on the market these days are synthetic. Yup even if they say they are pure.
That’s what an unregulated industry is able to get away with.
How are doTERRA different? doTERRA’s mission is to create the purest most pristine essential oils available to buy, no matter the hurdles faced to make that a reality. doTERRA’s oils go through rigorous testing to ensure they are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. doTERRA are revolutionising health care, they are not just about creating a nice smell.
So now that we are clear…. Let’s discuss the benefits of doTERRA essential oils.
Lets start with the basics. What is an essential oil?
A variety of plants cover the Earth in different shapes, sizes, colours, and scents. Many of these plants contain compounds that hide within the roots, flowers, seeds, bark, or other areas of the plant. These compounds are known as essential oils. They are highly concentrated, making them extremely potent. Also referred to as volatile aromatic compounds, essential oils give a plant its aroma, protect it from harsh environmental conditions and insects, and play a part in plant pollination.
Great, but what does that mean for me?
Essential Oils for Health Benefits
In ancient times, people used essential oils and plant parts to improve their health and well-being. Essential oils can be used to soothe skin irritations, promote healthy digestion, support good oral health, help open the respiratory system, support the immune system and more, they have long been a popular choice for those who want to maintain good health and particularly look to the root of the problem not just bandage the symptom.
Essential oils offer a variety of benefits, and each individual experiences essential oil use in their own way. Fortunately, the diversity of essential oils makes them a helpful way to maintain health, even for those who have specific health concerns, seek diverse health benefits, or experience sensitivity. Using essential oils for health benefits has become popular because it allows the user to tailor the experience to their specific wants and needs, rather than settling for a generic solution.
The Emotional Benefits of Essential Oils
With unique chemical structures, each essential oil holds a variety of benefits for the user. Some essential oils hold soothing, toning, and grounding properties, while others are known as energising, uplifting, warming, or renewing. As our bodies go through an array of emotions and physical states throughout a single day, essential oils can help us manage and maintain well-being.
The chemical design of an essential oil gives it specific benefits. Some essential oils are helpful for cleansing or purifying, while others provide a soothing sensation to the skin. The aroma of essential oils can also create a chemical reaction in the brain, eliciting emotions and internal responses.
