Explore The Art And Use Of Essential Oils For Better Living

4th October 2017

The use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal; they have been used throughout history in many cultures for their health-promoting properties.

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have enjoyed the fragrance of a rose or the smell of freshly cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities.

Essential oils can lift the mood, calm the senses, and elicit powerful emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal. They have been used throughout history in many cultures for their health-promoting properties. Modern trends toward more holistic approaches to self care and growing scientific validation of alternative health practices are driving a rediscovery of the profound health benefits of essential oils.

Many have powerful cleansing properties. Their unique chemical structure allows them to deliver targeted benefits through topical application. Certain oils may be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well-being.

doTERRA means "Gift of the Earth"

doTERRA® CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities and are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.

Keeping contaminants out of doTERRA oils, and assuring the presence of the oils’ active compounds at the right levels are necessary to guarantee safety and effectiveness. Many oils claim to be the therapeutic grade, and some may be pure but few are subjected to rigorous testing standards for chemical composition. doTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are cross tested using Mass Spectrometry and Gas Chromatography to ensure both the extract purity and composition potency of each batch.

Using essential oils is intuitively simple and highly satisfying. However, the many oils available with their numberless combinations and wellness applications can be a bit overwhelming to beginners.
