What are essential oils?
Essential oils are Earth’s natural superpower. They are naturally occurring aromatic compounds found in plants. These compounds are then extracted in a careful distillation process making them highly concentrated and extremely potent. Essential oils give a plant its aroma, protect it from harsh environmental conditions and insects, and even play a part in plant pollination. We can use essential oils in many ways, from their beautiful scents to natural health care and beauty remedies, food preparation and toxic-free living.
When I was younger I had trouble going to sleep at night so my mum would sprinkle lavender on my pillow and put on the bottom of my feet. I used essential oils in my oil burner, however, never knew the full power of these oils until I was introduced to doTERRA.
I use my essential oils between 10 – 15 every single day. Some of the ways I use them throughout the day include:
- Using aromatically to enhance my mood, boost focus and relieve stress
- Creating healthy and natural recipes flavoured with essential oils
- As a natural substitute for toxic perfumes
- In my homemade beauty products
- As cleaning sprays for the kitchen and bathroom to reduce the toxic chemicals we have around our home.
- Use on my dog – yes there are some essential oils safe for us on our pets!
doTERRA is the largest essential oil company in the world for a reason. Harvesting and distilling essential oils should be done with the utmost care which is why I chose to partner with doTERRA.
