As someone who has been working as a Sound Therapist for over 13 years, I am always open to learn of other forms of natural medicine, and this is what I have discovered and experienced first hand through these amazing oils.

I was introduced to doTERRA essential oils in 2018 and I've been using them as part of my daily life ever since, and I know I will continue to do so!

What is an essential oil?

 

Powerful natural oils (aromatic compounds) are found in various parts of plants; seeds, roots, barks and woods, leaves and needles, fruits and berries, peels, flowers and also the resin, and essential oils are highly concentrated versions of these oils.

The oils are extracted in a number of ways, but the most common form of extraction is low-heat steam distillation process.

During this process pressurised steam circulates the plant to extract the oil which is then carried away in the steam. Once the steam cools the oil naturally separates from the water and is collected in this way.

Another method of extraction employed by doTERRA is that of expression, also known as cold pressed. As the name suggests, this method doesn't involved heat, instead, the oils are extracted through mechanical pressure


Essential oils can be used in 3 ways:

  1. Aromatically - Through inhaling directly from the bottle, diffusing the oils, or adding a drop to your hands, rubbing together and inhaling.

     The scent molecules are sent directly to the brain from the olfactory nerves (our sense of smell) and impact the emotional centre of the brain, also known as the amygdala.

  2.  Topically - Applying directly to the skin. (To be used with caution with regards to skin sensitivity and a carrier oil is recommended).


       With the molecules in essential oils being small enough to penetrate through the skin, they pass into the bloodstream and are carried throughout the body.

  3.  Internally - Through cooking, or adding them to a capsule in "tablet" form.

        doTERRA currently offers 37 oils that are safe for ingesting. Taking them in this way allows them to move beyond topical use, and allows them to reach the organs and cells in a more targeted way.

 

Please consult with me or another doTERRA wellness advocate before administering essential oils.

Why is doTERRA different?

 

Essential oils have grown in popularity over the last few decades, so it's no surprise that they are more accessible to buy, both online and on the high street.

But doTERRA offer something different. These CERTIFIED PURE THERAPEUTIC GRADE oils are tested for their purity to ensure that they are are of the highest quality. 

But it's much more than that...

I'm a strong believer that whatever illness or dis-ease we may experience; in the body through physical ailments; in the mind through mental un-wellness or in the heart through emotional pain, I believe that nature has a remedy for us.

 

I first had this notion as a young girl when I ran into my first stinging nettle. I didn't need to look far to find the cure. Right there next to the nettle was a doc leaf to provide the perfect remedy!

Below is an A-Z guide of just some of the conditions we may experience on a day to day basis, with the suggested oils to work with.
