If you’ve ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring vaporous aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.
Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats, and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants, essential oils have been used for their beautiful fragrances, their healing properties, for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices since the old times. They have potent attributes on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. The different chemical components of the flowers, plants and trees that have been distilled into oils have a powerful effect on our brain. Scents can help us remember events from the past, and may assist in clearing negative thought forms, and manage emotions. In fact, essential oils can be used for a wide variety of emotional and physical wellness applications.
dōTERRA’s Essential Oils can be used in a variety of ways:
I use my oils in all three ways, depending on the oil and the effect I am looking for.
When I have a day of traveling, or simply a lot to do, I put a drop of grounding oil under the soles of my feet. The foot soles have a lot of blood vessels and acupressure points just under the skin, which makes it an ideal spot to have the oil be absorbed effectively and quickly.
Each morning I put a drop of lemon oil in a glass of warm water that I drink before I eat anything, to aid my digestion.
Which oils I put in my diffuser varies greatly. I love blending oils, choosing them by their fragrance and properties, just like putting a bouquet of flowers together.
Whenever and wherever I use an essential oil, I create a little ritual around it: I pause for a moment, I remind myself of the reason I am choosing this oil, and I set an intention. This way I cultivate presence with what I do, which is essential for living a mindful, healthy and happy life.
