What are Doterra Essential Oils and how can they help you?
Doterra Essential Oils are compounds from nature, taken from seeds, bark stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue. They contain aromatic qualities that protect plants and have historically been used by people for medicinal and therapeutic benefits for many centuries, and modern scientific study and trends toward more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications.
Essential oils are used in three main ways medicinally: aromatically, topically, and internally. Whichever way they are used they are immediately absorbed into our skin due to their purity as they do not contain fatty lipids or acids that are found in vegetable and animal oils. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit.
Aromatherapy focuses on our body’s responses to olfactory stimuli. Diffusing essential oils can calm the senses and purify the air of unwanted odors and some airborne pathogens. Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways including the stimulation of hormones and other metabolic processes. Certain essential oils, when diffused in the air, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Low or no-heat essential oil diffusers are recommended as they do not change the chemical structure of the oil being diffused.
Topically, essential oils have restorative and calming properties and can be used effectively with massage and beauty therapy. Due to their chemical structure, the essential oils can be easily and safely absorbed into our bloodstream through the skin for cleansing benefits throughout our body. Application of essential oils can have immediate, localized benefit to the target area of application. They are also natural disinfectants.
Internally, essentials oils can be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. Some essential oils have powerful antioxidant properties while others help support healthy inflammatory response in cells. Many essential oils are generally regarded as being safe for dietary use, but some oils should not be taken internally. Do not use any essential oil product internally that does not have the appropriate dietary supplement facts on its label.
