Essential Oils

Why we Love doTERRA

We had both been earing a lot about essential oils and wanted to try them, I had heard a lot about doTERRA especially but was honestly slightly put off by the price. We ended up buying a few oils though a local health food shop to try them out and found they were helpful for winter and colds etc for the kids. I still kept looking at doTERRA and hadn't done too much with my oils when i won a competition and got a free massage plus two doTERRA oils. when i got to the massage i was feeling a bit sniffly like i had a cold coming and the lovely massage therapist at A Touch of Aloha on the Gold Coast was so lovely and helpful, she used all of the right oils to help me and advised me what to use to have me feeling better, after the best massage of my life i felt much better and by the next day the signs of cold had all vanished! 

We ended up swapping the essential oils i had won out for a OnGuard, and lemon, i'm now having on guard everyday in my water and haven't had a cold since! I signed up with doTERRA the next day and started a LRP order which myself & Manal share to get the oils we want (plus monthly freebies for putting in the LRP before 15th of each month)

I have found on guard fantastic and also use Lavender and Tea Tree mixed with a bit of fractionated coconut oil for my allergies which for me works great. There is so much information available and a whole list of things the oils can assist with. Below is some information from the doTerra website and information on how to become a wellness Advocate and enjoy wholesale prices for the oils. You can chose to just buy one off or sign up to LRP..

If you are interested or have any questions about doTERRA feel free to ask, we're still learning about what blends and mixes work best for us and our families but we love them and hope you will too : )


What is an Essential Oil?

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. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. 

But what exactly is a volatile aromatic compound? In short, these compounds are small organic molecules that tend to change quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. They are called volatile because they change state quickly. When you first open a bottle of essential oil, you instantly notice that the aroma is potent and you can smell it typically even from some distance. The physical and chemical properties of the volatile aromatic compounds that compose essential oils allow them to quickly move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for applications inclusion in aromatherapy – using these compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications. The type of volatile aromatic compounds present in an essential oil determines both the oil’s aroma and the benefits it offers. 

Over 3,000 varieties of volatile aromatic compounds have been identified to date. The nature of an essential oil varies from plant to plant, within botanical families, and from species to species. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits. 

Even with pure essential oils the composition of the oil can vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather, making every step of the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil product. 

Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in complex essential oil blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Want to learn how to use essential oils?

When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. 

Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.  

While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques. 

The most common method of extracting essential oils is a low-heat steam distillation process. In this process, pressurized steam is circulated through plant material. The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected. To ensure the highest quality oil extract with the correct chemical composition, the temperature and pressure must be closely monitored. Too little heat or pressure and the oil will not release; too much, and the oil’s composition and potency will be affected.
