Essential Oils

Essential oils are a vital tool to help me rest and restore (physically and emotionally) and consciously care for myself, my family, my animals and my home. I love essential oils because they are pure and potent. They support me to be healthy every day and they are a vital part of my personal toolkit.

 

Harnessing the power of plants

Since ancient times, humans have been using plant materials, such as petals, leaves, bark, resin and rind from plants to support our health and wellbeing. They are potent and powerful. 

Essential oils are basically little organic molecules (known as aromatic compounds) extracted from plants.

Why I use
essential oils

In the last five years, I’ve been working with essential oils and have found them to be a really great support for healthy living.

For over a decade, I’ve been on a journey to discover the optimal ways to eat well and live healthy every day. From my personal experience, what I know is true is that a paleo and cyclic ketogenic approach combined with intermittent fasting really works.

It’s also why, in the last five years, I’ve been working with essential oils and have found them to be a really great support for healthy living.

Essential oils are a vital tool to help me rest and restore (physically and emotionally) and consciously care for myself, my family, my animals and my home.

I now use them daily – whether it’s inhaling as aromatherapy in an essential oil diffuser, when I’m working or at home, diluting with a carrier oil and applying topically to the skin or making my own non-toxic home cleaners and products.

Essential oils are potent and powerful, which is why I use them consciously and wisely. It is important that the essential oils I work with are of high quality – pure, safe, effective and sourced sustainably.

It’s why I personally use doTERRA essential oils and why I recommend you use them too.

How to use
essential oils

Essential oils support me to be healthy every day and are a vital part of my personal toolkit. There are two ways I like to use them...

AROMATICALLY – USING YOUR SENSE OF SMELL

Known as aromatherapy, essential oils have long been studied for their ability to enhance feelings of relaxation, encouragement, excitement, focus, and calm. You can achieve this by diffusing oils in an essential oil diffuser (diffusers that use cold air or water are ideal), diluting a few drops and applying to your palms and inhaling or even adding a few drops of oil to your laundry or to a spray bottle with filtered water to mist the house and purify the air.


TOPICALLY – DILUTING AND APPLYING TO YOUR SKIN

Essential oils are lipid soluble, which means they stay on your skin so applying the oils topically is very effective. The advice is to start low and slow. To decrease the likelihood of developing a skin sensitivity, I recommend always diluting in a carrier oil (such as fractionated coconut oil) and to do a patch test for 24 hours first before trying an oil for the first time. Start with the lowest possible dose (1–2 drops only). A topical dose can be repeated a couple of times a day.

Why I choose
doTERRA

doTERRA is the largest purchaser of essential oil in the world and they go to great lengths to ensure their oils are pure, potent and safe.

doTERRA is the largest purchaser of essential oil in the world and they go to great lengths to ensure their oils are totally pure, very potent and completely safe.

Their model is designed to create powerful impacts – scientifically, socially and environmentally. The raw materials the oils are made from are tested at the source and are free from pesticides and herbicides. They are harvested sustainably and extracted carefully. Every time you buy an oil, you are supporting the people and communities who nurture these important plants.

Every oil also undergoes rigorous, independent testing and auditing to be Certified Pure Tested Grade (CPTG).


SUPPORTING FARMERS & DISTILLERS

Working with farmers and distillers in over 40 countries (many in the developed world), doTERRA has supported the growth of strong, vibrant networks for their expert local growers and distillers.

As a result of these exclusive partnerships, the growers and distillers are protected. They receive a fair price, regular payments throughout the year to support their families and support to create local co-operatives. It means that every time you buy a doTERRA oil you are supporting the health and wealth of every single person in the supply chain.


PARTNERSHIPS

Beyond the benefits in terms of production, this global network is also being used to change lives for the better. doTERRA does two things to achieve this. One is Co-Impact Sourcing® – see the video below of how this operates in Kenya. The other is their non-profit charitable organisation doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™.

Through partnerships in these areas, doTERRA is able to work to improve lives through providing the basics and by  promoting education.

One more word…

Before you open your doTERRA account with me, please know if you already have one, you can’t open another. This is doTERRA’s policy, which I whole-heartedly stand behind. Also please do not set up an account under your spouse’s name, if you already hold an account, as that will be seen as a duplicate account. The idea with doTERRA is we are building a family – one where you honour the people who educated you about the essential oils in the first place. So if you’ve already got an account, go back to your contact. If you don’t, we encourage you to join our doTERRA team as a wholesale customer.
