Essential oils are distilled from all parts of plants. The purity of these oils depends on many factors: the part of the plant that the oil was distilled, the process, soil condition, region the plant is grown, climate, harvest season and harvest method. This is why some companies have better quality oils than others, even though many oil companies claim that their cheaper oils are just as therapeutic as the more expensive ones. For these reasons, oils range in price also.
Oils that are not so pure may not achieve the desired results and may even be toxic. Take your eucalyptus oil from the supermarket for example. It may say 100% eucalyptus oil. An essential oil only needs to be 3% oil to be classed as pure. It doesn’t say what else is added to it or what is done to it. Unnecessary high pressure, high heat and processing with chemicals are usually the answer. Cheap Lavender from the pharmacy is also treated this way. People often say to me “I’ve tried to use Lavender to help me sleep, but it gives me a headache. Usually that’s because these oils are not pure and are not therapeutic grade. I was one who used to hate lavender. I tried to use it for sleep and it kept me awake as it made me fell sick. I didn’t realise it wasn’t pure.
Plants share a similar DNA structure to humans. The small molecular size of essential oils allows them to quickly seep into the skin and into the bloodstream. They neutralise free radicals as they are powerful antioxidants. This allows them to affect every cell of the body. Essential oils are the defence mechanism of the plant, defending it against bacteria, mould, insects etc. So when we use them for our body, they work the same way as they do for the plant.
Now I prefer to use dóTERRA essential oils. There is nothing added to them and each oil passes through strict standards of independent piracy and potency. dóTERRA plants are grown in indigenous locations, where they flourish naturally. This is why they have the best therapeutic qualities. So lemons being native to Sicily, is where you find they grow their lemons.
They also employ and educate the local community to provide sustainability for them. Places like Somalia where Frankincense is sourced are obviously very poor and the people harvesting Frankincense are usually taken advantage of. dóTERRA commits to co-impact sourcing in all of these areas to ensure these communities are getting fair wages and on-time payments.
My aim is to eliminate as many toxins as possible as I feel that life today is way too toxic. When you consider what is done to our food with spraying, being genetically modified, preservatives, air pollution, cleaning chemicals, body products like body wash, soaps, hair products, make-up, deodorants etc., tap water and medications, our bodies are becoming chemically over-loaded.
What I can tell you is that from using dóTERRA’s essential oils I have better sleep, I use the oils for everything from cleaning to beauty products, and my whole family benefits by using them for immune boosting, supporting the immune system, supporting emotional, physical and mental health.
So if you are generally interested in natural health, you can contact me for more information. You will never regret the attempt to take back your power and heal your body yourself. There are so many health conditions that essential oils can assist and support. Not only that but you can eliminate toxic products in your house.
