essential oils

 

People often ask me “Why Essential Oils?” and then I ask them to make a cup of tea and sit down… because the list is so long it’s going to take me a while to get through all the reasons! Seriously though…Essential Oils have affected my life in so many ways, and in ways I never expected. A few years ago I was like most people, I had a limited understanding of essential oils and their uses and I was a little… sceptical… about what results I would experience.   I starting using the oils and also researched more about their ability to support the body therapeutically and as I do with everything, I turned to science for further information.  And there you have it… hundreds of years of applications in so many different ways, by so many different cultures and oodles of scientific and medical research for the use and application of essential oils (just visit US National Library of Medicine and you will see what I mean!). My family and I have had a truly amazing experience with these oils and so my journey began…

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants. These pure extracts from plants are up to 70 times more powerful than herbs and have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. If you have ever run your hands along the leaves of a mint bush, or smelt the beautiful fragrance of a rose – you have experienced the wonderful aromatic qualities of essential oils.

So where do essential oils fit into today’s health care? In my opinion the best form of medicine is truly integrative, meaning that it combines the very best of modern and complementary medicine – both have something to offer us all. Essential oils certainly do not replace modern medicine, rather it offers natural/complementary support for the body with many everyday physical and emotional health issues. Having essential oils on hand is empowering for families to know that they have safe, natural, effective, affordable and easily accessible alternatives to chemical or synthetic based solutions.

How do I use dōTERRA’s Essential Oils?

Well there is literally an oil to support every body system!  From Endocrine – hormonal/reproductive support, Emotional – calming/uplifting/grounding/concentration, Digestive – stomach upsets/cramps, Respiratory – seasonal relief/congestion, Immune support, Skin issues, Circulatory and Cardiovascular Support, Muscular support – pain/soreness and stiffness associated with physical activity,  Nervous System sleep issues, and also provide assistance with weight loss, detoxification, energy and more!

They have replaced all of my household cleaning products, and I now make my own toxin/chemical free products that are safe and extremely affordable (often only costing as little as 50 cents!) for the whole family (including the animals!).  I make my own skin care (lip balms, moisturisers, serums, pimple gels, masks etc, baby/child skin care (nappy rash cream, soothing bed balms, cuts and scraps serum), and perfume products.

I use essential oils as air fresheners, disinfectants, and santisers (their store bought counterparts are loaded with chemicals that over load our body systems with toxins and leave us struggling!).   I now have an ultrasonic diffuser in every room in our house, so I can use oils that provide endless therapeutic benefits and assist them with their individual needs.  Note: Always use an ultrasonic diffuser when using these oils aromatically rather than a traditional “oil burner”.  Heating them can destroy their therapeutic value.

I cook with essential oils on a daily basis to add natural, beautiful fragrant additions to our food, and I also use them on our two miniature schnauzer for a wide range of issues (there are a lot of essential oils considered safe for use on animal).

 

What makes dōTERRA different to other oil producers?

There are a lot of different standards of essential oils out in the marketplace today, and there are very few good suppliers.  However, there is only one that I entrust my families health with.  For me I wanted to partner with a company that I could feel confident was going to produce the highest quality (pure) product on the market and that also fit my values.   One of the major factors that made dōTERRA stand out to me is their Co-Impact Sourcing model. dōTERRA source the plants for their essential oils ethically and sustainably from wherever that plant is indigenously grown around the world. As a result, dōTERRA currently sources their essential oils from over 40 countries, 22 of which are developing countries. I love the fact that every time I open a bottle of dōTERRA essential oil, I am not only helping myself and my family, but I am helping to improve the lives of so many people and helping them provide for their families and their community.  dōTERRA train and develop these farmers on best practices and often help them achieve a higher quality and better price for their oils. As the old Chinese Proverb says – “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Conversely, when you buy a bottle of Eucalyptus and Melaleuca (Tea Tree) Oil, you are helping to support Australian farmers!

Why did I chose dōTERRA Essential Oils for my family and my business?

There are a number of reasons why I chose dōTERRA, but the main one being for their therapeutic value.  Firstly, I chose them for their “purity” – dōTERRA essential oils are subjected to stringent testing, both in-house and by multiple independent third parties, to ensure the oils are free from synthetic fillers, pesticides and chemical residues. Secondly, for their “potency” – their oils are extremely potent because dōTERRA source their oils from where the plants are indigenously grown, this means their chemical composition contains the exact profile it needs to provide maximum effectiveness and “potency”. So in a dōTERRA bottle, you will find nothing but 100% pure essential oil – period.  In an industry that it highly unregulated, companies can put on a label that says ‘100% Pure essential oil’ or ‘Organic Essential Oil’ and have their oil only contain at best 50% essential oil (and the other is 50% multipurpose liquid – whatever that is?!) and at worst 1% essential oil.  So while that $10 bottle of oil at the chemist may seem cheap, you are often only paying for a very small amount of essential oil (the rest being some kind of base or carrier), that oil has not been treated with stringent testing for quality and purity (often contains synthetics and chemicals) and does not contain the therapeutic benefits your body needs.

Did you know that an an essential oil can be 100% pure, but not be potent in terms of the therapeutic benefits it can provide? dōTERRA are diligent in conducting extensive research and testing to ensure that their essential oils have maximum therapeutic value. An essential oil’s therapeutic value is determined by its chemical composition and this is influenced by many different factors like the particular part(s) of the plant from which the oil was produced, soil condition, fertiliser (organic or chemical), geographic region, climate, altitude, harvest season and method, and distillation process.

Here is a fantastic video on how dōTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing model has such a positive impact on the people and the environment.

So how do I get dōTERRA Essential Oils?

You can purchase them through this website (we carry a small range in stock) or purchase them through our online webstore.

Which is the Most Popular Kit?

The Home Essentials Kit is definitely the most popular to start with.  It comes with 10 of the most popular essential oils and a dōTERRA Petal Diffuser so you can get started using your oils straight away. This kit contains everything you need to start to detox your home and your health.  The kit is $330 which includes your wholesale enrollment, your own website and support from me. To buy all this separately at wholesale prices would cost $415 plus the $35 enrollment fee, a total of $450. The retail value of this kit is over AU$500.

The bottles in the Home Essentials kit are 15ml (around 250 drops per bottle), compared to the Essential Collection Kit (still a great budget friendly option) which contains 5ml (around 85 drops each) bottles. So the Home Essentials Kit is three times the value, plus you receive a diffuser!

Interested in selling dōTERRA products retail? Or want to add them to your existing health business and save?

When I first decided to sign up with dōTERRA for my business I purchased an oil sharing kit.  It just made sense for me to buy in bulk and save money in the initial purchase (you get $130 OFF the wholesale price for the kit), and then I also saved a lot in the long run.  Why? The Oil Sharing Kit starts you off on the Fast Track program (which was the long run savings I just mentioned – it provided me with free products quicker) which gives you 20% back in Loyalty Rewards (free product points) instead of the usual 10% which is what is offered on a standard wholesale account.  So I ended up with savings of 45% to 55% off the retail price overall.

You also receive an awesome bonus of 200 Product Points for FREE (over $200 of free products! woo hoo!), when you place a min 100PV Loyalty Rewards Program order the month after your initial order.
