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: Aromatic, Topical and Internal. Below are brief descriptions of each method along with examples of oils that I use frequently. CLICK HERE for additional information on essential oils.
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. Great examples of Aromatic oils are dōTERRA Lavender, dōTERRA Frankincense, dōTERRA Breathe® Respiratory Blend and many more.
Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. Some of my personal favorites are dōTERRA Deep Blue® Soothing Blend, dōTERRA On Guard® Protective Blend, dōTERRA Lavender and my very favorite is dōTERRA PastTense®!
Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness. Some of my favorites are dōTERRA Lemon (great for the Solar Plexus), DigestZen® Digestive Blend (aka the Tummy Tamer), dōTERRA On Guard® Protective Blend (great for the cold and flu seasons) and the list goes on!
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.
