I’ve used essential oils for many years as aromatherapy as well as to supplement my daily health regime. Essential oils are highly concentrated, aromatic essences derived from plants. I recently discovered dōTERRA essential oils and have had the exciting opportunity to try out a variety of their exquisite oils.
dōTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils can be used safely by your entire family for a variety of health and wellness applications. I find dōTERRA oils to be of high quality—non-irritating, and the scents true and pure. I’ve tried many different brands of essential oils and some aromas can be overpowering; however, I genuinely find dōTERRA oils to be perfectly balanced—they smell like the real plant, light and heavenly.
Yesterday morning I ran 10km through the forest in the rain. The forest was filled with cedar and fir trees. I was so cold on my return home (I was thoroughly soaked) that I drew a hot bath and added several drops of cedar and white fir essential oils to the water. It was as though I was still in the forest, only this time sitting in a hot spring. I love essential oils because the aromas transport me to wherever I want to be—a rose garden, forest or spring meadow. A few drops of lavender in the bath is heavenly and puts my mind in the right relaxed mode before bed time. If I need to energize I’ll put a few drops of peppermint in my bath. I find the aromatic oils send bouquets to my brain to either stimulate or relax me depending on which scents I choose. All it takes is a few drops in the bath or in a room diffuser to send blissful aromas throughout the home or office.
Recently I’ve been experimenting with essential oils on my skin to help with a variety of health issues (allergies, hormone fluctuations etc.). If I’m dealing with a respiratory bug or seasonal allergies, a few drops of eucalyptus oil clears my head. Often I use a variety of essential oils combined and dab the mixture everywhere I apply perfume (behind the ears, on wrists, on the décolletage) to balance my hormones during monthly fluctuations. However, there are safety guidelines that I follow when using essential oils. Sometimes applying the oil directly to the skin can cause irritation in sensitive individuals.
I’ve really enjoyed the purity of dōTERRA essential oils and I am considering ordering a starter kit for my family.
