Essential Oils Q & A
What are essential oils?

For thousands of years, many cultures around the world have used Essential Oils for medicinal and health purposes. Essential oils have recently gained mainstream popularity as a natural, safe, and cost-effective therapy for several health issues.

Essential oils are made by distilling or extracting the different parts of plants, including the flowers, leaves, bark, roots, resin, and peels. The distilling process concentrates the oils of these plants, by separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant into a single oil. In fact, just one drop of an essential oil can have powerful health benefits. Because Essential Oils are highly concentrated, they carry a strong aroma and are used in aromatherapy. Applications of aromatherapy can be through diffusion (inhalation), topical, and internal.

What are the benefits to using Essential Oils?

It’s exciting to explore the many different types of Essential Oils, and the many benefits and uses. You just need to open your mind to a whole new way of preventing and reversing health problems that you’ve been battling for years.

There are essential oils for hormones that can help to balance your estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, thyroid and testosterone levels. Many essential oils have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties that help to boost your immune system and fight off infections. Some Essential Oils can also help digestion by stimulating digestive enzymes that make it easier to break down and absorb the nutrients, fats, and protein that you need. Some oils have stimulating effects that can increase oxygen to your brain, which will leave you feeling refreshed, focused and energized with improved brain power! The benefits to using Essential Oils are many, and their uses range from aromatherapy, household cleaning products, personal beauty care and natural medicinal treatments.

Is there a difference in the brand of essential oil I buy?

It’s becoming easier to find Essential Oils nearly everywhere nowadays. You don’t need to go to specialty health food stores anymore, you can find them at the grocery store now! But buyer beware, when it comes to Essential Oils you want only the highest quality ingredients from a reputable source. Essential Oils are not regulated by the FDA in the US, so many companies use cheaper, inferior ingredients in their products. For true, therapeutic results, you want organic, therapeutic grade essential oils. That’s why we proudly offer doTERRA Essential Oils to our practice members.
