What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home. Inside many plants—hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, bark—are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These natural compounds are essential oils. Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions and benefits. We can use essential oils topically, aromatically and internally to support our physical and emotional health naturally.
How Do Essential Oils Work?
When you open a bottle of pure, unadulterated essential oil, your senses are instantly filled with its potent aroma,
even from a distance. What your nose detects are the naturally occurring elements of the essential oil.
Every essential oil varies in its natural makeup, so aromas and benefits are also unique. For example, Lavender oil includes elements that make it effective for soothing skin irritations, and promoting a restful environment for sleep. Meanwhile, when taken internally, Frankincense oil supports immune, nervous, and digestive systems, and aids in healthy cellular function. Essential oils are natural and safe extracts from plants with amazing health benefits and without side effects. Essential oils are lipid soluble and can permeate the cell membrane, which allows them to effectively address the root cause of health problems. With aromatic use, essential oils can positively affect mood, cleanse the air, and open airways. Applying essential oils topically can provide localized benefits, such as to soothe achy muscles and joints. Internal use of essential oils (in water, veggie caps or under the tongue) are an excellent way to naturally cleanse and provide digestive support. doTERRA's essential oils are Certified Pure Tested Grade, the most pure, trusted and tested essential oils available, giving you the confidence to use essential oils for all members of your family.
