A Word on Quality
How can you be assured of my bold claims of the effectiveness of therapeutic-grade essential oils? In a nutshell - purity means power. With discrepancy even in organic standards between countries globally, the only guarantees are when the extracts are ENTIRELY pure, which means we need evidence of this. As the essential oils industry is currently unregulated, bottles are labelled and sold as ‘pure’ all the time. However, this is not the case as even some organic sources, depending on country and soil regulations, may have still sprayed crops or the soil in which it grows with pesticides, herbicides, and/or heavy metals. Some organic standards are better than others and certainly an organic standard can sometimes give us an improved option, however, complete PURITY is not guaranteed unless there is scientific testing and evidence. Enter doTERRA and their ‘Source To You’ sister website that provides a portal for the third party scientific test results from any bottle of oil. You can add in the ID number from the bottom of any doTERRA bottle and it will provide you with the original source of that extract, as well as the scientific test results and how to understand them. More than cool.
Another reason why I advocate for doTERRA other than their commitment to providing the highest quality and complete purity, and in my opinion the highest vibration of oils on the planet, is also their heart-led ethos. They are facilitating a model of the fairest of trade, referred to as Co-Impact Sourcing. To be really honest, when I first discovered doTERRA I had my own questions on whether such a large business could have as big a heart. The journey of exploration I have been on since first being introduced to the oils and to the doTERRA business side of things has challenged my own mindset around money and business. It is my increasingly strong belief that a new way of working and trading in the world is the only way forward, and that must include people being paid fairly for their produce and services. Of course the ideal is that this fair trade occurs, as well as the highest quality of produce, in this case, essential oils reach the consumer. These are the basics of fair trade but not a model you often hear of huge companies adopting, and in doTERRA’s case, not just adopting but prioritising. doTERRA source not only the purest extracts (and therefore most effective) but also these extracts come from both indigenously and abundantly growing crops where they are naturally growing. doTERRA build long-term sustainable relationships with the growers and farmers in over 40 countries, prioritising fair wages for them and also prioritising that the crops and land are respectfully harvested and allowed to regenerate appropriately. Quite simply if a source decreases in quality or abundance, it isn’t used and this is why restrictions sometimes occur on certain oil availability or amount, and why sourcing locations can change to continue to ensure quality and abundance.
Healing Hands Foundation
Healing Hands Foundation is an initiative providing humanitarian work funded and staffed by do TERRA to various global communities. Those communities benefit immensely from extra support for things like good basic living conditions, ethical treatment and education, and inequality, often things we take for granted in Western culture, where in other countries underdevelopment and cultural differences sometimes mean abusive or inhumane situations. There are a vast number of examples of this work on the link here doterrahealinghands.org
The Many Ways I Use doTERRA Therapeutic Grade Oils
I used 'high-street' essential oils for many years before I was introduced to doTERRA 2 years ago and educated on the numerous benefits of an essential oils lifestyle. Previously I'd used the odd dab of tea tree on a spot, or a whiff of lavender for calming, hoping for some benefits. Whilst this used to be OK and possibly with some benefit at times (mostly because at least I felt I was taking some action), the difference in potency, purity, and effectiveness that I have now experienced with doTERRA oils has been such a huge contrast. I look back and reflect on how different my life was without these oils. It’s hard to imagine now, and easy to see how I struggled so much in different areas without the support of holisitic healthcare tools. Now I reach for an oil knowing it will do exactly what it says on the tin. Its been life-changing. A bold statement that is absolutely true and filled with gratitude that I have these oils in my life, here's why...
The initial issues that I personally sought support for from the oils were rather intense anxiety (not that everybody I met would have always known due to the internal conflict being the most prevalent), crippling IBS pain and bloating, and adult acne which led to facial scarring. These three main issues alone have drastically improved to the point of me barely noticing them. And if I have a day, as I am human of course, where I do start to notice that anxiety knot twinging in my stomach, or a limiting belief going around in my mind, or if a huge zit pops up, I know how to gain control again and I reach for my oils. It is so empowering to know that if and when ANYTHING comes up, I have the tools at hand without unnecessarily reaching for a pharmaceutical medicine, and without losing my sanity too much. My IBS is now what I would consider to be cured by the intervention of doTERRA Peppermint oil and ZenGest (the amazing digestive blend). Did you know that 1 drop of doTERRA Peppermint oil is the equivalent to 28 Peppermint teabags?! The pure concentrate of these extracts is phenomenally potent and effective. I have also found Melaleuca (the pure name for tea tree) to be a powerful healer of spot breakouts and cold sores, vastly reducing the healing time in comparison to the lower quality oils I had used in the past. I use Vetiver on my facial scarring and in the process the aroma is calming to my whole system as it is sourced from the Valerian root family, nature's sedative.
Frankincense, when it’s the real deal such as via doTERRA sourcing, is anti-aging, as it supports collagen reduction, resilience, and regeneration of the skin, as well as preventing breakouts simply by adding 1 drop per day to my usual moisturiser or coconut oil. Frankincense has also been a top oil for anxiety for me and it is known to enhance the effects of other oils when blended in a diffuser. There is also a great deal of incredibly exciting research available now on the ways in which Frankincense is supporting neurological health with its regenerative properties assisting; dementia, Alzheimer’s, and various cancers, to name just a few conditions. The potential life-changing benefits of this due to the improvement, reduction, or even cessation in symptoms over time and with regularity in use is profoundly exciting and I am passionate that I can look after myself and my family with these amazing oils, and to share them with other’s who can benefit. And the research is growing and widely available on the internet.
Since initially ‘treating’ my main three issues with these powerful oils, I have gone on to discover hundreds of other functional uses everyday that serve my family’s health. Did you know that therapeutic Oregano oil is nature’s antibiotic? We have all heard that Lavender is of course calming and great for inducing sleep for all ages but did you know it also soothes teething pain, eczema, muscular aches, and is also anti-microbial? Ylang Ylang not only smells to me like tropical beaches but also relieves sadness and is an aphrodisiac? (There are also other oils with these properties too in case you were wondering!) :) Lemongrass is THE most powerful cleanser, great for purifying the air and surfaces in your home yet also reduces aches and pains, and flavours Asian food beautifully?! The list goes on so please get in touch to find out more or book a free consultation on the areas you would like support with.
Another thing I love about the oils is how versatile they are in their properties. Sure enough if I don’t have an oil to hand for a particular ailment, there are always oil alternatives - for example lemon is also a great cleanser if I’m out of lemongrass, Black Pepper is great for pain if I’m out of Wintergreen, Siberian Fir opens up the airways if I’m awaiting a delivery of Air, the respiratory blend (a favourite for all the family during coughs and colds). The oils, when used with safe dosage and dilution, are effective for children’s and adults health alike. Again, I have drastically reduced the amount of synthetic medicine I use for myself and my children and would only use pharmaceuticals in future as an absolute last resort. I have literally abolished the need for paracetamol as one tiny drop of Peppermint in a small amount of carrier will take a headache down. With 255 drops of oil per 15ml bottle - you can see how long they last and the money-saving value they offer on price per use, not to mention the comparison with having no side-effects or toxicity. I am learning and utilising so many new uses every single day! My latest favourite experimentation is with other skincare oils and I am loving using Neroli, Geranium or Rose alternatively for glow. So much so I am occasionally ditching the little bit of make-up I wear as I’m feeling that much more confident in my own skin.
