Essential oils are volatile organic plant compounds that penetrate the skin membrane and are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. The oils are a fast acting, natural solution for major health concerns and challenges. Each oil is comprised of hundreds of chemical constituents and are used for mood regulation, energy, sleep and stress reduction as well as physical, mental and emotional health.
On a microscopic level, the oils are extremely small and easily pass through the dermal levels of the skin which allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream, cross the blood-brain barrier and penetrate the cell membrane.
Essential oils can be categorized into 8 groups;
Citrus (wild orange, grapefruit, lime, tangerine)
Florals (clary sage, lavender, yarrow)
Spices (black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon)
Herbs (cilantro, oregano, blue tansy)
Roots (vetiver, spikenard)
Leaves (eucalyptus, melaleuca, wintergreen)
Woods (cedarwood, juniper berry,sandalwood)
Reisins (frankincense, copaiba, myrrh)
Quality matters. Yes, you can purchase a bottle of lavender at the drugstore for a fraction of the price, and you’ll get a fraction of the benefits.
doTERRA chooses to source the highest quality Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils from their indigenous habit. They source from over 40 nations and partner with local farmers (most of which are in developing countries!) to create thousands of jobs around the world.
By purchasing an oil, you are doing far more than just benefiting your own health, you are helping to generate jobs and promote environmental stewardship.
