Essential oils are Gods wonderful gift to the world. An essential oil is a natural oil that occurs inside plants. It's the smell of a rose, lavender flower, or a peppermint leaf. These oils are extracted and distilled creating beautifully bottled essential oils to use for beauty treatments, recipes, healing purposes, and so much more.
It was so important for me to learn where my oils were coming from due to many unfortunate circumstances in several large companies here in the US. doTERRA sources their oils from over 40 different countries and many of these countries are considered developing countries. It is very important for doTERRA that these small farmers and harvesters are treated ETHICALLY. They are given SUSTAINABLE, long term jobs with income to support themselves and their families!
Im so glad you asked that! Essential oils can be used for a number of things. From creating your own natural bug repelent to reducing cancer cells in the body, essential oils are incredible for so many reasons. Spice up your recipes with nutrient packed oils, refresh your water with invigorating citrus scents, add into lotions for a soothing aroma, and breathe in to create a zen and peaceful environment. My favorites? Peppermint, lavender, lemon, and wild orange!
