What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds produced by plants to act as defense mechanisms against damage caused by environmental stressors.
These essential oils are found in different parts of the plant including the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and fruits.
There are a wide range of essential oils that can promote good health. There are also many sources and brands of essential oils. It is important to use only the purest essential oils as some brands and formulation may contain impurities that reduce effectiveness.
What Makes Essential Oils Effective?
doTERRA essential oils are more than just aromatherapy. They work on a cellular level to protect cells and penetrate cell membranes. Their unique chemical structure allows the oils to pass directly through the skin for immediate systemic response to the topical application.
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
It is important to understand that not all essential oils are the same. It’s important to know the quantity and quality of testing that is done on the plants to make certain that they are free from chemicals and pesticides.
doTERRA’s CPTG establishes a standard of natural purity. Each batch of oil undergoes rigorous 3rd party testing to certify purity. How you use them will be determined by CPTG. Always read the labels and follow the instructions on the bottles or contact the company directly.
Using Essential Oils Aromatically
What you breathe, affects your mood. When your olfactory receptors are stimulated, they transmit impulses to your brain and this pathway is directly connected to your limbic system. The limbic system is the part of your brain that deals with emotions. Do you ever connect with happy memories with certain scents? This connection explains why that happens.
You can diffuse them or put a drop in your hands, rub them together and inhale, depending on the oil.

I had the best acupuncture treatment I have had in awhile from Dr. Priya Advani. I have heard so many wonderful things about her from her clients over the years so I just had to try. Priya took more time to listen to my concerns and offered so much valuable information about my current health. Her suggestions were right on target. I have had tons of acupuncture treatments before but this was the first time it was combined with Essential oils. I never knew oils could be so powerful and when combined with acupuncture it left me just dreamy and feeling great! I will be back for more! Elyse E.
