What Is An Essential Oil?


Essential oils are the natural immune system of the plant.  The naturally occurring antioxidants and properties that individually protect each variety of plant against environmental and seasonal threats, are then transferred to the immune system of our body as we use essential oils, so that we can be strengthened and supported in the same way.


Essential oils can support our bodies physically, but they also play an important role in supporting our mental health and emotional well being.  They have been used since ancient times, and today in addition to supporting our health are used in food, and beauty routines and rituals.  As the fragrance of a plant comes from the essential oil, not only can we use them for their physical, emotional and practical benefits, but they give us a wonderful variety of beautiful aromas to indulge our senses, and cherish around the home and in our lives.

Why dōTERRA Essential Oils?


The essential oil industry is not a strictly regulated industry so it is very hard to be sure we are getting the purest form.  Many essential oils are topped up with fillers, carrier oils and cheaper oils, not to mention that they can frequently contain chemicals and pesticides.  Whether you choose to run a luxurious bath with these oils, diffuse them or apply them topically onto your skin, they go into your blood stream and then into your cells, so it is of great importance to ensure their purity.


dōTERRA essential oils through ethical, chemical-free growing and processing techniques, as well an in-depth testing process, including the use of a third party for all final testing, are of the highest grade. They set their own Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade standard so they can guarantee to us that these oils are 100% pure and potent.  When used responsibly dōTERRA essential oils are safe, and the magic of nature means that they work in harmony with your body.



Inhalation of essential oil supports many bodily functions including the respiratory and nervous systems.  This method of use heightens the senses, and influences mood very quickly as our sense of smell is very closely connected to regions of the brain that controls long term memory, emotions and hormones.  Oils can be diffused, inhaled directly from the bottle or applied to diffuser jewellery, clothing or even a tissue. Many people use a cool-mist diffuser to enjoy the scented properties.



Using essential oils topically is a popular way to experience the benefits, especially on any localised areas that may need support.  It is important to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil to reduce the risk of any skin sensitivities, with dilution ratios available for application to children and babies.
