Why Essential Oils?
Essential oils are plant essences available in oil form that can support body, mind & spirit in profound ways. They support getting you to your regeneration zone because these plant miracles have side benefits rather than side effects. This mean that when use them for one thing, or as part of a daily wellness protocol, your body utilizes the plant botanicals that help bring into balance imbalances that you didn't realize you had, or that may be so familiar or long-lived that have resigned yourself to managing them rather than healing them.
On a physical level, essential oils are the aromatic compounds of a plant that are extracted from the leaves, flowers, roots and other parts of plants through a distillation process.
They are also much more than that—or they can be.
dōTERRA Essential Oils are 50-70x more powerful that the herb form of a plant
For example, one drop of Peppermint Essential Oil has the therapeutic potency of 28 cups of peppermint tea.

Not All Essential Oils are Created Equally...
A clunker that is duct-taped together and a Ferrari are both cars, right? But no one would consider them equal.
Plants have consciousness.
Like people, when plants objectified or considered a utilitarian resource to be used and disregarded, it diminishes the radiance of their life force.
As essential oils are getting more popular (read: profitable), more companies jump in and, because there is little regulation in the essential oils industry, add labels like “pure” and “organic” that are misleading in this industry, and sell them as “essential oils.”
When people use these inferior oils, they may enjoy the scent, but miss out on the much more profound benefits of the essence, the life force and the powerful botanical compounds that deeply support body, mind & spirit.
How Do You Use dōTERRA Essential Oils?
Great question! The answer most people give is...
Aromatically, through diffusing or placing 1-2 drops of oils in your hands, rub them together, cup them over your nose & mouth and inhale deeply. The aromatic compounds help open airways and immediately affect brain chemistry and influence mood.
Topically on the skin. Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin—simply place 1-2 drops on your hands, rub together and apply to the targeted area, or a generally helpful location like the bottom of the feet, back of the neck, chest and stomach. A single drop of dōTERRA Essential Oil serves every cell in the body in 20 minutes, and even penetrate cell membranes, where viruses hide out in our bodies.
Internally by adding to food or water, or placing a drop under the tongue for fast absorption into the bloodstream. dōTERRA Essential Oils used internally support the internal systems and digestive system. Note: VERY FEW companies formulate essential oils for internal use, and not even all dōTERRA oils are internal use (not all plants are edible!) The easiest way to know which dōTERRA oils are safe to ingest is to look for the Supplement Facts on the bottle.
Going Deeper with dōTERRA Essential Oils
There are also three levels of interaction with essential oils…
Using: You can use an oil for a known or anticipated direct effect, either for preventative support (like Digestive Blend to support healthy digestion) or symptom relief (like peppermint for pain/headache relief.) The more you use your oils with intention and appreciation, the better (in my experience) they work!
Partnering: According to many shamans, the only active ingredient in the plant-human relationship is friendship. When you partner with an oil and invite its balancing power into your body, you are making friends with or partnering with the oil. You and the oil to experience one another and establish a respectful and intuitive working relationship. With consistent use, like as part of a daily or regular protocol, you begin to reap the side benefits of essential oils and re-balance imbalances that you didn't even know you had because they had not yet risen to the level of creating symptoms. When you partner with essential oils in this way you lay the foundation for deep regenerative health.
Co-Evolving: As you make friends with an oil, you can invite the oil to take the lead in direct experience to help you intentionally evolve a quality or aspect of yourself, to open to its wisdom and let that wisdom take root in you, or even to invite the plant spirit to express itself more fully in relationship with you. To me, this is co-evolution because you evolve on all levels by connecting with a plant essence in oil form; and the plant, though the oil, evolves by expressing its magic through you.
All three levels take time, practice and intention to get the best results. The quality of the oil and the life force it carries is of course critical for best results, but so it what you bring to the experience.
You can “use” an oil, or you can partner with it; they are two very different experiences. The choice is yours.
What you put in and on your body synergistically interact with your body and determines what you become. Reality check, right? The reason I LOVE dōTERRA is the mindful integrity they bring not only to oils but to every level of their footprint in the world…
Plant Sourcing: In a commitment they call Co-Impact Sourcing, dōTERRA works directly with communities families & farmers all over the world so they can source from where the plants originate as well as ensure steady, fair wages and working conditions in the developing world.
Essential Oil Purity: In an industry that is weakly regulated, dōTERRA created a company standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade ™ to guarantee the purity, potency and testing standards of their oils. All oils are third party tested, tested three times before released to you, and tested far beyond organic standards to include therapeutic potency, organoleptic (sight, smell, taste, touch) testing, microbial and heavy metal testing. You can even find out the testing results of your exact bottle of oil.
Healing Hands Foundation: In addition to distilling pure, potent essential oils dōTERRA is committed to serving people and communities around the world. The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that partners with organizations like Operation Underground Railroad and Days for Girls, as well as dōTERRA Wellness Advocates to eradicate disease and poverty, and empower communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant.
