Essential oils don’t just smell good

Essential oils are natural, aromatic compounds extracted from the seeds, bark, stems, roots and flowers of plants. Up to 70 times more powerful than herbs, essential oils have been used by many cultures throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits.

These powerful, all natural products have incredible benefits for you and your family and, because they are highly concentrated, a little goes a very long way. By making simple swaps you can easily incorporate essential oils into your daily life to:

  • support your immune system, hormones, respiratory system and gut health
  • enhance the appearance of your skin, hair and nails
  • alleviate aches, pains and tension in your joints and muscles
  • increase your energy, vitality and mood naturally
  • replace toxic cleaning and personal care products.

But not all essential oils are made equal. Keep reading to find out why we choose dōTERRA essential oils.

We started using dōTERRA oils a couple of years ago a safe, effective and affordable alternative to toxic cleaning products

Sam and I discovered that oils, combined with bicarb soda, vinegar, castille soap and a bit of elbow grease worked a treat! (PLUS… they didn’t aggravate my eczema which, at the time, covered most of my body). As I’ve learned more about the properties of different oils, they have become indispensable; there is quite literally an oil for everything!

I also love using oils as part of my personal yoga practice so, when I became a teacher it seemed natural to share them with students. Find out which are my favourite oils to use here.

We choose dōTERRA essential oils because of their ethical standards, quality and purity

I fell in love with essential oils more than a decade ago when visiting a lavender farm in Provence, France. As a backpacker, I didn’t have much money but, after the guide reeled off a seemingly endless list of benefits, I knew I HAD TO GET MY HANDS on that oil. Jelly fish stings, mosquito bites, sore muscles, smelly dorm rooms… my newly acquired oil was hailed as the cure for any and every ailment.

I have tried many brands since and believe three factors set dōTERRA apart from other products on the market:

1. Ethically and sustainably sourced

dōTERRA source plants from wherever that plant is indigenously grown. For example, lemon essential oil is sourced from Italy, frankincense from North Africa and both eucalyptus and tea tree (melaleuca) from right here in Australia.

By developing long-term partnerships with small-scale growers and distillers, dōTERRA help create jobs and skills in countries where they are very much needed. Currently, their essential oils are sourced from 34 countries, 18 of which are developing countries. In developing countries, dōTERRA’s Healing Hands Foundation funds the construction of schools, health centres, co-operative buildings, water systems and more, to empower growers, families and communities. You can choose to donate to the Healing Hands Foundation each time you place an order and, because doTERRA absorbs all the administration costs, 100% of your donation will reach the people who need it.

I love knowing that every time I use dōTERRA essential oils, I am not only helping myself and my family, I am helping to improve the lives of many people all around the world. Find out more about direct impact dōTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing.

2. Purity

As someone with eczema and asthma, the quality of what I put on my skin and into my body is really important to me.

Every bottle contains 100% pure essential oil, free of synthetic fillers, pesticides and other chemical residues, making them a safe, effective and affordable alternative to many synthetic products and remedies.

Aroma is an excellent indication of purity and when you smell dōTERRA essential oil, you know it’s the real deal! The fragrance, Unlike many other oils on the market,  is neither overbearing nor nauseating.

3. Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®

An essential oil’s potency or therapeutic value is influenced by many factors such as the part(s) of the plant from which the oil was produced, soil condition, fertiliser (organic or chemical), geographic region, climate, altitude, harvest season and method, and distillation process.

dōTERRA conduct rigorous research and testing to ensure the oils have maximum therapeutic value, helping to support mental and physical wellbeing.
