What are essential oils?
Essential Oils are made from plants for physical and emotional benefits.
They are distilled from leaves, flowers, tree bark, seeds, or rind of fruit in concentrated amounts. These oils form the plant’s own immunity and defense against microbes, bacteria, fungus, insects and disease, as well as being the fluid that regenerates and heals the plant.
Our bodies are made of building blocks similar to plants so when we use the oils they go to work in our bodies in the same way they would for the plant.
You can discover these safer, more affordable, and more effective natural solutions for yourself.
They are 50 – 70 times stronger than herbs and typically one drop of a dōTERRA® essential oil has a powerful effect making them affordable at just cents per use!
Oils can support your body in wonderous ways, but God is always your ultimate healer and prayer, through Jesus His son, your first resort.
How do I Use essential oils?
You will soon learn that there are hundreds of ways to use dōTERRA® essential oils, including relaxation, personal hygiene, household cleaning, cooking, and supporting a healthy body. Every oil has at least one of three application methods: Aromatic, Topical, or Internal.
For Aromatic Use ~ Breathe in from the bottle, from cupped hands or use a diffuser to open up airways, improve mood, or freshen the air.
For Topical Use ~ Use a carrier oil when applying to bottoms of feet or affected areas to target specific needs.
For Internal Use ~ Drop in water, under tongue, or in veggie capsule to support mouth, throat, digestive system, or overall health.
“The oil of the HOLY SPIRIT is the most essential oil you could ever have…”
Some Basic Safety Tips
Photosensitivity – No sunbathing after applying citrus essential oils. Citrus oils are sensitive to the sun since they are made from the rind of fruit. Avoid direct sunlight to the exposed area for at least 12 hours or that location may have a skin irritation or burn. Oils applied underneath clothing should be fine.
Hot oils – If it starts to burn, skip the water. Use a carrier oil (olive-, coconut-, jojoba-, almond oil) or whole fat milk. Because essential oils don’t mix with water, applying water to the area can actually drive the burn in deeper. Ouch!
Avoid these areas – Never put essential oils in your eyes, inside ear canal, or up your nose. However, you may apply oils around the eye bone in a C shape, on the ear cartilage and behind the ear bone, or diffuse essential oils.
Dilution– Use a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil when applying essential oils topically to avoid skin sensitization.
Safe storage – The majority of all adverse reactions to essential oils by children have been as a direct result of accidental overdose and ingestion in large amounts. Keep out of reach of children. Use child proof safety caps.
