What Are Essential Oils?
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
How do I use essential Oils?
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:
Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.
Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.
Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.
Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless.
That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise. You’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity.
This testing protocol—CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®—sets the bar for quality, purity, efficacy, and consistency. When plants are grown in optimal soil, temperature, and climate, they produce a higher quality essential oil—just as nature intended.
Sourcing Essential Oils
Potency starts with the plant itself. The same species of plant when grown in different environments will vary in chemical composition. But, that’s only half of the equation. Purity plays a major role as well. Many essential oils available to purchase are not certified pure. Often, they contain fillers or other elements that dilute and alter the purity. This diminishes the healthful qualities of the oil.
dōTERRA is committed to providing the purest, most potent essential oils possible. We employ a global network of farmers who know intimately the process of growing plants for essential oils. They ensure the plant is taken care of properly and harvested at the proper stage. dōTERRA has also perfectly melded modern advances and testing procedures to ensure the purity and efficacy of each essential oil. Every dōTERRA essential oil is put through the highest standard of rigorous and thorough testing.
When an essential oil is deemed worthy to be sold as a dōTERRA essential oil, you’ll know that it has the highest quantity of active, beneficial constituents and that it is free of contaminants and adulterations.
Because, at dōTERRA, we know that the same care and attention—as well as the same commitment—to only provide the very best is not unique to us; they’re the same qualities you employ when taking care of those you love the most.
