The answer is a resounding YES.
As you explore this site, you’ll find lots of info, DIY recipes, science, and testimonies so I won’t go into too many specifics here. But, yes, oils can be a huge part of your wellness routine. They can help ease stressful and anxious feelings, lift your mood, support restful sleep, and help with healthy immune function and inflammatory response. Massaging tired, sore joints & muscles brings great relief, you can breathe easier, think clearer, ease an occasional headache, and a whole lot more. All with tools that are extremely safe when used as directed and simple to have on hand whenever you need them.
Ever had to run out to the store in the middle of the night? Yeah, me too. Now just open up my oil box.
And we haven’t even mentioned how effective and money saving they are for cleaning and personal care…..
What if you’re as clueless as I was at first? Not to worry – for those who become part of my oil community, you get loads and loads of help and support. Pretty soon you’ll be rattling off the best oils to use for your carsick toddler, your worn out feet, or that smell that you just can’t get out of the house.
BUT……there are about 1,000 different brands to there. How do I know what is best? Let me share a bit about why I use doTERRA
Quality matters — everything you put on or in your body affects your health. Make sure it’s a POSITIVE EFFECT
Many of you may not be aware that there is no industry quality standard for essential oils. The FDA does not regulate grades of oils, so you can find oils out there in a huge range of quality. Companies can say they are “therapeutic grade” but it really doesn’t mean anything. In fact, I’ve heard doTERRA criticized for their CPTG trademark (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade). Yes, it is their trademark, and they make no secret about it. It is their promise to every customer that they will go the extra mile to make sure that every oil is pure, without synthetic fillers, without the use of dangerous fertilizers or pesticides (making them beyond organic). This promise also includes a close relationship with the farmers to insure crops are harvested at the right time, as well as with the distillers to make sure that time, temperature and pressure is correct.
Every batch of oils is sent to through multiple rounds of third party testing to check and double check the quality of each oil. To my knowledge, this is far beyond what anyone else is doing. If a batch doesn’t meet their standards, they do not use it.
Oils are a huge part of my daily routine — but I also have incorporated doTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality. supplements into my routine too. Many of the people I work with use and love them. I can’t say enough about how much they help me; many of the people I work with have shared their testimonies for you as well.
