 Essential & Nurturing Oils 


Throughout the ancient world, essential oils were relied upon because of their beneficial properties in Egypt, China and India.  There are documented uses of essential oils by Napoleon, as well as references in the Bible. An essential oil is a volatile aromatic liquid that is generally distilled from the stems, leaves, flowers, roots, bark or seeds of a plant.  As they contain the true essence of the plant, essential oils are highly concentrated and far more potent than dried herbs.

Aromatherapy, the science for using essential oils, has become popular in more recent years.  Unfortunately, there are huge differences in the quality of oils offered.  Please be aware that there are products that use manmade scents selling themselves as 'aromatherapy'.  These do not have the same positive, natural effect that truly pure, organic essential oils provide.   In fact, synthetic and low grade oils can be very toxic, as they include other ingredients and chemical solvents not natural to the body, possibly causing rashes, burns, allergic reactions, nausea and indigestion.   (Having tried a number of different brands, I have had these types of reactions with the less pure oils.  I am also very allergic to the manmade/synthetic brands as well.)

Aromatherapy is used for psychological and physical well-being.  For best results, only the purest and most natural oils should be used.

"The ability of essential oils to act on both the mind and the body is what makes them truly unique among natural therapeutic agents.  The fragrance of an essential oil can be very stimulating - both psychologically and physically.  The fragrance of other essential oils may be calming and sedating, helping to overcome anxiety or hyperactivity.  On a physiological level, essential oils may stimulate immune function and regenerate damaged tissue.  Essential oils may also combat infectious disease by killing viruses, bacteria and other pathogens."   D. Gary Young, author of "Essential Oils - Integrative Guide". 

If you are drawn to use essential oils, some questions to ask:


*Are the oils distilled from organically grown plants?

*Have the oils been processed using a technique that maintains the therapeutic components of the plants?

*Do the oils have a high bio-frequency?  (Everything vibrates at different levels.  The higher the bio-frequency, the more effective.)

*Has the purity and quality of the oil been ensured through independent lab analysis?

*Are health care professionals using this brand of essential oils?

In my search for the purest, highest grade oils, I found doTERRA Essential Oils:

What I love about these oils is they are grown in the areas where they are naturally found; fast acting, high vibration, penetrate easily and positively affect the mind and body.  doTERRA Essential Oils are GRAS (generally regarded as safe) for ingestion ~ meaning we can use them on our food and in our drinks.  Thus I can use peppermint oil in my water, lemon oil in my salad dressing, wintergreen oil as a breath freshener.  (This is not possible with other brands, due to lower grade oils.)

doTERRA Essential Oils can be diffused (they purify the air, revitalize or calm the mind and body).  To get the best effect, it is important to use a diffuser that does not burn the oil (which radically reduces the effectiveness). 

doTERRA oils can be used in massage, mixed with a carrier oil such as the Fractionated Coconut Oil, organic coconut oil, organic olive oil or other high quality oil.

*  Add a few drops in your bath water.

*  Use as a fragrance.  (Due to allergies and chemical sensitivities, for years I have been unable to wear any perfumes or use scented products.  The purity of doTERRA essential oils allows me to wear lovely oils that also relax and balance the mind and body.  What a joy!). 

* Sprinkle a few drops of a doTERRA essential oil in potpourri.

* Use a few drops of a doTERRA essential oil in a humidifier.

* Rub several drops into palms of hands, cup over nose and mouthe, and breathe deeply. 

I've done this with allergy attacks, using "Lavender" oil, and experienced relief. 

When fatigued, I use "Peppermint" oil, as it brings oxygen to the brain, assisting in concentration and memory.  (Just be careful not to touch your eyes with it!  If this happens, put a drop or 2 of a regular carrier oil - e.g. olive oil, coconut oil - in your eye - it will dillute the Peppermint & alleviate the discomfort!)  Peppermint works great in water as well - one drop is enough as it is very potent.  (It's a great way to replace the afternoon coffee or sugared snack habit.)    Peppermint is also great for headaches - put some behind your neck, at the base of your skull.

* Nearly fill a glass spray bottle with pure water and add a few drops of your favorite oils - then spritz yourself or the room.  You'll definitely feel a difference!

SUGGESTED doTERRA Essential Oils:

"SERENITY CALMING BLEND" when used before bed offers a better night's sleep, or when feeling stressed, tense or irritable results in natural calmness.  It is a gentle, relaxing, uplifting blend that promotes a deep sense of peace. 

"WHISPER" Blend for WOMEN, which blends with your individual chemistry to create your own beautiful & unique personal fragrance.

"ON GUARD PROTECTIVE BLEND" supports healthy immune function. It is also safe to use on counter tops - as a non-toxic way to cleanse surfaces...  One can also clear the atmosphere by diffusing On Guard.

"Lavender" is the most versatile of all the oils, has multiple benefits, including cleansing and soothing the skin.  Recently I burned myself with some nearly boiling water.  I rinsed my palm with cool water, dried it off, then put Young Living Lavender oil directly on it.  The pain and redness eased, and I avoided blistering.  Lavender is very soothing, relaxing and balancing, both physically and emotionally. 

"FRANKINCENSE" is one of the most powerful, multi-use oils - e.g. for relaxation, immune support & mood enhancement.

"ELEVATION JOYFUL BLEND" produces an uplifting magnetic energy that brings joy to the heart.  I enjoy wearing it as a perfume, diffusing it or spritzing it.  It's great when I wake up with the doldrums.

"Peppermint" is soothing for digestion; cool and refreshing (whether diffused or topically applied).  It also can have dramatic effects on weight loss, improve concentration and mental accuracy.  (I have also used it for pain, especially in the neck and shoulder area where most of us keep our tension.  I then add "Wintergreen" oil after a few minutes... so soothing...  ahhh.)

"Lemon" is one of the oldest traditional cleansing oils that also supports the immune function.  It improves and protects the skin, helps deodorize and purify air and water.  I use a drop in my drinking water when eating out (if I'm not carrying my bottle of purified water). 

"Lemon" has also helped me get off very high doses of GERD (GastroEnteroReflux Disease) medications.  The D-Limonene works well for heartburn.  (Of course, if you are on prescription medications, seek guidance and work with your doctor.  If you begin using oils for therapeutic purposes, you may need to have your medication adjusted, so close contact with your primary health care provider is essential.)

"PURIFY CLEANSING BLEND" helps purify and deodorize the air, neutralizing mildew, cigarette smoke and other disagreeable odors.   Applied to the skin it helps cleanse insect bites, cuts and scrapes.

"BREATHE RESPIRATORY BLEND" helps you breathe easier - applied on the chest, back, or bottom of feet, it cleanses & soothes the airways. 

"BALANCE GROUNDING BLEND" creates a sense of calm & well-being, helping decrease moments of anxiety or disconnectedness.

There are many other wonderful oils to choose from that I also enjoy.  Every day I use doTERRA and am grateful for the healing benefits, as well as the wonderful scents.


doTERRA also offers awesome supplements (including the LIFELONG WELLNESS Pack, GX ASSIST GI CLEANSING FORMULA, PB ASSIST PROBIOTIC FORMULA.  There are also other specific formulas - FM ASSIST - a Monthly Formula for WOMEN, & MJ Assist, MUSCLE & JOINT Formula.   After having explored many other brands, I find that I utilize doTERRA wellnesss products on a regular basis, having found them to best support my body and mind, and resonate with my needs.


doTERRA's ESSENTIAL SKIN CARE maximizes the natural power of essential oils in helping to keep your skin looking & feeling young, healthy, & gorgeous.  Cutting edge technology is combined with the Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils to target visible signs of both cellular & mechanical aging.

For the doTERRA Essential Oils and Supplements  the most affordable way to include these wonderful oils in your life is to become a distributor, and create a new income stream (or just purchase for yourself, friends & family). 

Whether you decide to share the products with others or not, enrolling as a distributor allows you to take advantage of wholesale prices.  If you choose the monthly autoship, you receive special rates for  shipping.  You also earn credit towards free product when you are on this AutoShip Reward Program.  (Percentage you earn towards product increases every 3 months for a year!) 

Others prefer trying the oils and other doTERRA Wellness Producst at retail price, or at a lower "preferred customer" price, and then later decide to enroll as a distributor to take advantage of lowest prices. 

After using the products you might find you are interested in sharing them, and also would like the freedom of developing another source of income while helping others.  If so, you could then consider expanding from personal use to sharing the products with others and building your own business.  You choose.
