Welcome to the Essential Oil Page! I started using Doterra Essential Oils in the Fall of 2013 and would never go back. While there are many companies who sell Essential Oils (EO), I chose Doterra. I was introduced to Doterra by old family friends, Kristen and Eric Nordoff who run Faithful Wellness. As soon as my oils came in the mail, I fell in love.However, it wasn’t until I contracted the flu that I really found the power of EO.
My housemate, unfortunately, came home with H1N1 and within 2 days I knew I had it. Typically I would have gone to the doctor, loaded up on flu medications and went home. However, I decided to give the EO a try. I created a “Flu Bomb” and preceded to ingest it every hour for the first day. To my surprise, I never obtained a fever over 100! Although I had the typical aches and pains, the EO were working hard. Within a couple of days I felt so much better! I was so pleased to know that I hadn’t spent $$ going to the doctors, buying flu medication and inundating my body with anything buy natural products. From that moment on, I’ve been hooked!
Below I have given the basics of Doterra EO. Feel free to ask questions and join my team!
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of fresh-cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination.
Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile aromatic compounds. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. 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.
Essential oils have been used throughout recorded history for a wide variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians were some of the first people to use aromatic essential oils extensively in medical practice, beauty treatment, food preparation, and religious ceremony. Frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh, and cinnamon were considered very valuable cargo along caravan trade routes and were sometimes exchanged for gold.
Borrowing from the Egyptians, the Greeks used essential oils in their practices of therapeutic massage and aromatherapy. The Romans also used aromatic oils to promote health and personal hygiene. Influenced by the Greeks and Romans, as well as Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic use of aromatic herbs, the Persians began to refine distillation methods for extracting essential oils from aromatic plants. Essential oil extracts were used throughout the dark ages in Europe for their anti-bacterial and fragrant properties.
In modern times, the powerful healing properties of essential oils were rediscovered in 1937 by a French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who healed a badly burned hand with pure lavender oil. A French contemporary, Dr. Jean Valnet, used therapeutic-grade essential oils to successfully treat injured soldiers during World War II. Dr. Valnet went on to become a world leader in the development of aromatherapy practices. The modern use of essential oils has continued to grow rapidly as health scientists and medical practitioners continue to research and validate the numerous health and wellness benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oils.
