Q: What are essential oils?
A: Essential oils are derived from natural and aromatic compounds that can be found in flowers, roots, stems, bark, seeds, and other parts of plants. Essential oils help to protect plants against environmental threats. They also play a large role in plant pollination. Additionally, they are incredibly fragrant, can be used for food preparation, various health and beauty treatments, and other alternative and holistic health care practices.
Q: How Do I Use Essential Oils?
A: Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods: aromatic, topical, or internal.
Aromatic use of essential oils can cleanse and purify the air you breathe of unwanted or foul odors. A lot of people find that diffusing oils is one of the easiest and most effective routes to go. Some essential oils can be incredibly stimulating to the senses while others can be used for a calming and soothing effect.
Topical use of essential oils is also incredibly popular and easy since it can be safely applied and absorbed by the skin. Most of the time you will need a carrier oil as doTERRA can be very concentrated and lasts a long time.
Another way to use essential oils is to ingest them or use them internally. They can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness or even to season food. When essential oils are applied topically and internally, you are going to want to make sure that you pick the absolute best essential oils in terms of potency and purity. **Note** Never ingest an oil that does not say it is digestible. doTERRA has very clearly marked bottles as to what is digestible and what is not. This will ensure that you are using essential oils for optimal wellness.
