WHAT ARE THE 3 WAYS 

TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS?

EOSAFETY

Although unusual, occasionally it is possible to have a sensitivity response to an essential oil. This occurs when there is heightened reactivity of an essential oil that may result in an unwanted response in the body or on the skin. Awareness of your body and how it reacts to different essential oils, amounts applied, and location applications can help minimize risk and ensure safe usage. 

That is why it's always a great idea to dilute. 

Dilution is a process in which essential oils are mixed with a carrier oil—a pure vegetable oil that helps “carry” the essential oil onto the skin. There are many benefits to dilution, including increasing the surface area of absorption, enhancing absorption through dry skin, and preventing sensitivity responses. 

doTERRA’s carrier oil of choice is Fractionated Coconut Oil due to its long shelf life and lightweight texture. 

 

Dilution in no way diminishes the efficacy of essential oils and offers many benefits that can enhance your application experience.

effective

Essential oils are effective because they are able to pass through cell walls. This means essential oils can support outside of cells and threats on the inside of cells halting threat replication with our cells and supporting the body in getting well quicker. They address the root cause.

No cover up a problem.

affordable

A pure essential oil is 50-70 times more powerful than herbs. One drop of peppermint is equal to 28 cups peppermint tea. You can see they are very potent! One drop is all you need to start with at pennies a dose. Essential oils also allow you to be proactive in your health so you can stay on top of your health to avoid unnecessary sick days.

3 Cool Things About Essential Oils

There is no regulation in the essential oil industry. Companies can use fillers and change the pure chemical composition of an essential oil and still call it an essential oil.

 

A leading essential oil chemist said that 75% of the essential oils on the market today are adulterated! (Which means that they are not just the pure plant!! Dang...)

 

That is why doTERRA uses the phrase "certified pure therapeutic grade" holding a promise that its products will be:

 

1. Pure and unadulterated

 

2. Grown in areas that ensure the best chemical composition of plants by farmers using sustainable methods and are compensated for by fair trade practices.
