dōTERRA – Essential Oils
Essential oils have long been known and proven as a remedy by many indigenous people, but are relatively new to us. Unfortunately there are big qualitative differences these days. Essential oils have to be of high quality, fairly produced, absolutely pure, and consequently have their price. For this reason, I only use oils from doTERRA.
For me and many others, the essential oils of dōTERRA are true miracle drugs. I use them for everything - as a remedy, as a room fragrance, to clean and cook. The oils are highly effective on the physical and emotional levels, helping the body to get rid of toxins and toxins, and stimulate the immune system to activate the self-healing powers.
Why dōTERRA - Why I love the Oils
dōTERRA pays attention to quality and fairness. dōTERRA is latin meaning gift of the earth. And that's exactly how I see these wonderful oils. For me personally and for so many people (and animals) an enriching and helpful experience.
The essential oils of dōTERRA are among the purest and most valuable oils that exist. They contain no fillers or chemical impurities and have proven to be good reason
The dōTERRA essential oils in "Guaranteed Pure Therapeutic Quality" (CPTG) consist of natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They contain no fillers or artificial additives that reduce their effectiveness and are free of contaminants, such as pesticides and other chemical residues.
dōTERRA relies on the know-how of the local botanical network and responsibly supports thousands of jobs around the world. dōTERRA seeks to reduce poverty through ethically responsible employment in essential oil production. By creating and maintaining jobs in rural and underdeveloped areas, dōTERRA supports workers from marginalized communities and small farmers in developing countries, helping them to move from income insecurity and poverty to economic self-sufficiency.
doTERRA rewards loyalty with free oils and products - like a frequent flier program, you can set up a LRP (Loyalty Rewards Order). It is worth it if you use a lot of oils, or if you have a business with the oils or want to shift your household to be all natural.
I make all my cleaners, skin care products and many other things myself - and loving it, it brings out my inner witch and alchemist ;)
How to use the Oils
Essential oils can be used individually or in complex, sensible mixtures aromatic, external and internal. The dōTERRA oils help with all sorts of small and large complaints. In nature, essential oils are found in roots, stems, leaves, resins, flowers and barks of plants. Essential oils help the plant to adapt to its ever-changing environmental conditions, protect against dangers and provide beneficial and healing properties. That can be transferred to our health. In a diffuser, the smell of oils makes every room (or car) a special place. The smell of stimulating oils such as lemon or grapefruit brings energy, the scent of lavender soothes insomnia, peppermint dispels unpleasant odors from the kitchen etc. because sometimes life is not so easy, it is even more important to start the day with something good. The oils to "diffuse" go straight to the brain and have the ability to influence you positively. If we smell these wonderful oils, it can immediately strengthen our belief in the good in the world. The oils are great as a mood-brightener, for sleep disturbances, after or during Yoga for relaxing, for muscle pain, anxiety and much more. It's also perfect for the home, useful for unwanted mouse visits or removing stubborn stains - all in a natural way.
