Welcome to Wellness Wednesday. Today, it’s all about discovering, 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, compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They are 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 benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
When you first open a bottle of essential oil, you notice that the aroma is potent and you can smell it even from a distance. The physical and chemical properties of the aromatic compounds of essential oils allow them to move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for aromatherapy – using these compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications.The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits. The quality of the essential oil is determined by the high production standards and is what makes doTERRA oil’s the purest, safest most dependable 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.

About our Wellness Advocates:
My family’s journey into dōTERRA Essential Oils and supplements began as we were recovering emotionally and physically from a very long commitment as caregivers.
Afterwards, as a family, we realized that we had lost sight of our own personal well-being. Exploring and incorporating such pure essential oils into our home has brought our family back to balance. Now I have a passion for educating others about these natural solutions for essential wellness.
I have overcome some health issues in which the use of pure essential oils and supplements have helped me to regain my health. I now enjoy helping others and supporting them in their recovery process using dōTERRA products.
Together we love to educate others on the use and value of essential oils, especially for those who are looking to explore a more natural lifestyle. For example the oils and products can be used for stress and anxiety relief , emotional support, sleeplessness, headaches, joint and muscle discomfort, digestion, energy, focus and being able to create a non-toxic home environment and much more. Email us for further information.
Note: We recommend doTERRA essential oils as they are certified pure therapeutic grade and do not include any artificial nor synthetic additives as many other products do. However, there are other companies who provide essential oils out there. It’s always your choice. And of course, always discuss your health and introducing any products with your physician.
