Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home.
Inside many plants—hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, bark—are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These natural compounds are essential oils.
Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions and benefits.
Pure essential oils offer an alternative to synthetic products. Essential oils are more than just natural products. Each with a unique chemical makeup, essential oils have dozens of benefits for the body and mind. Essential oil benefits are determined by the chemistry of the plants. If these natural chemicals are properly extracted, they can be used to help you physically, mentally, and emotionally in your daily life.
If you use an essential oil “aromatically,” it means that you experience the properties or “aroma” of the oil through the air. Aromatic use typically includes breathing in or inhaling an essential oil, allowing the scent to interact with the mind and body.
Using essential oils topically offers significant benefits for the skin while simultaneously providing aromatic benefits. Essential oils can provide soothing, calming, warming, cooling, or energizing feelings for the body. Topical usage allows the user to target specific areas of the body (apply the oil where it hurts).
Internal use of essential oils is very specific to dōTERRA as the purity is critical when ingesting essential oils. Using oils internally is a method that is best used when you have specific area of concern that can only be met by ingesting the essential oil. For internal use we use veggie capsules and start off with 1-2 drops of each oil needed.
TESTING & TRANSPARENCY
Every batch of doTERRA essential oils goes through a rigorous testing process—well beyond what would be considered “good enough.” After that, each oil is sent to an independent third party for further testing and validation. If the oil passes the tests, it’s labeled as CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. When you see the CPTG® label, you know you’re using the purest essential oils on the market.
Want to see the purity of doTERRA oils for yourself? Every single bottle of doTERRA oil comes with a quality ID. Use the ID number on the bottom of your bottle to view the third-party test results for that batch of oil by clicking here.
