Essential oils are an integral part of my self-care apothecary.
I've used them since the early 90s, and when I got sick in 2000, I became even more aware of their influence on my wellbeing -both physical and emotional. Because at times I can not get outside, essential oils are a way for me to bring the healing power of the outdoors in. They are essential tools (pardon the pun) in helping me ride the riptide of emotions I feel as a result of living with a mysterious and mercurial illness.
I'd love to share how these powerful tools can benefit you and enhance your life.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are concentrated, powerful natural oils that are derived from various parts of plants including - barks, fruits, berries, flowers, leaves, needles, peels, roots, seeds, and resins. Since ancient times, essential oils have been used in food preparations, beauty treatments, and wellbeing practices. Peppermint, lavender and lemon are easy ones to get started with.

How can you use essential oils?
The most common use of essential oils is for aromatherapy. Simply by smelling the aroma of an oil, we can experience the goodness. This is my favorite way to use essential oils, as the aromas help me to shift my emotional state. You can smell the essence directly from the bottle. Or you can dispense a few drops of essential oil onto the palms of your hands, rub them together and then inhale. A diffuser spreads your essential oil or your aromatherapy blend into your home.
To use an essential oil topically, you first should dilute the oil in a carrier oil such as fractionated (liquid) coconut oil, almond oil, or jojoba oil. Contrary to what you may think, this actually increases the effectiveness. Some oils, if not diluted, can sting or burn the skin so use with care and be sure to educate yourself. Place on the inside of your wrists, on the soles of your feet, on your belly, behind the ears, or the back of your neck. Or you can use your blended oil in your bath.
The Food and Drug Administration designates some oils as "Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS), and these essential oils are safe for internal consumption. Taking oils internally can help with digestive and immune problems. You can add drops of essential oils to water or other drinks or to food. Or you can put drops under your tongue. You an also use a veggie capsule to encapsulate the oils and swallow them.

I chose doTerra oils for several reasons -
the high therapeutic quality of the oils, the values of the company, and the quality of the community. The people are amazing, knowledgable and kind!
