What is an essential oil?
Essential oils are aromatic compounds derived from nature- such as seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of the plants. Plants use these oils to protect themselves from threats, and since our bodies have a similar chemical make-up, we are similarly able to use them to keep us strong and healthy.
When you choose dōTERRA, you are choosing essential oils that are guaranteed to be pure, potent and ethically sourced. We source our oils from experienced growers located around the world, who patiently and perfectly harvest the plants the way God intended.
Using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol, essential oil users can ensure each bottle is in its purest form. This guarantees a superior quality of oils for the most effective and safe usage for individuals of all ages.
dōTERRA goes the extra mile by making a positive difference in the lives of our farmers and harvesters who live in developing countries. With over 100 essential oils coming from over 40 countries, more than half of farmers live in areas where there is great need. Through our Co-Impact Sourcing initiative, dōTERRA has created long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships with farmers and harvesters to provide sustainable jobs and reliable income to support the developing communities.
Additionally, dōTERRA’s charitable organization, the Healing Hands Foundation, works with these communities to identify areas of need and help provide basic necessities that we, as Canadians, take for granted every day. This includes building schools, medical facilities, installing drinking water and irrigation systems.
Essential Oil Usages
dōTERRA essential oils can be used in three ways:
1) Aromatically: essential oils can have powerful emotional, physiological and mental benefits through our sense of smell. By either using a diffuser or any of means of smelling the oils, they are quickly absorbed into our olfactory system and into our limbic system, which supports smell, emotions, behaviour and memory.
2) Topically: essential oils are easily absorbed into our skin and can elicit immediate positive impacts. Diluting the oils with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil can help ease sensitive skin, especially for children under the age of six.
3) Internally: Since dōTERRA essential oils are 100% pure, we are able to take almost all oils internally. When ingested, the oils are able to enter our blood stream and have strong positive impacts on our health and wellness. Internal usage is not recommended for children under the age of six. Please consult your wellness advocate for proper dosages and guidelines.
