Uses of Essential Oils

Home » Active Duty and Veteran Supports » Uses of Essential Oils

 

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 depending on user experience and desired benefit. Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements.

 

 Aromatic Uses

Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways including the stimulation of hormones and other metabolic processes. Aromatherapy is founded on the body’s predictable response to specific olfactory stimuli. Essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy applications. Certain essential oils, when diffused in the air, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Beyond emotional benefits, diffusing essential oils can purify air of unwanted odors and some airborne pathogens. Low or no-heat essential oil diffusers are recommended as they do not change the chemical structure of the oil being diffused. Essential oils can also be used as cleansing and purifying additives to laundry and surface cleaners throughout the home.

Topical Uses

Due to their natural molecular composition, essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. Application of essential oils can have immediate, localized benefit to the target area of application. They have restorative and calming properties and can be used effectively with massage and beauty therapy. They are also natural disinfectants. The chemical structure of essential oils also allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body.

Internal Uses

Essential oils can also be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. Some essential oils have powerful antioxidant properties while others help support healthy inflammatory response in cells. Many essential oils are generally regarded as being safe for dietary use, but some oils should not be taken internally. Do not use any essential oil product internally that does not have the appropriate dietary supplement facts on its label.

Using essential oils can be both profoundly simple and life changing at the same time. Working with someone who has used essential oils before will help first-time users have a more beneficial and enjoyable experience. A large amount of information is readily available for those desiring to increase their knowledge of essential oil applications.

(Be sure to use only 100 percent pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions. Essential oils should not be used in the eyes, inside the ear canal, or in open wounds. If redness or irritation occurs when using essential oils topically, apply any vegetable oil, such as fractionated coconut oil or olive oil, to the affected area. Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor’s care.)

FAQs

Q: dōTERRA’s essential oils are trademarked as “CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™”. What does this term mean, and what evidence is there to prove the efficacy and purity of your oils?

A: dōTERRA’s essential oils are trademarked and registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office as CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™. This term means that our essential oils will always maintain the highest quality standard in therapeutic grade essential oils for purity and efficacy. dōTERRA’s CPTG essential oils are 100% pure, free of fillers or artificial contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.

In order to assure the purity of our oils and the presence of their active compounds, we subject our oils to rigorous testing standards for chemical composition. dōTERRA’s CPTG essential oils are cross tested using mass spectrometry and gas chromatography to ensure both extract purity and composition potency of each batch. Each dōTERRA product is guaranteed to exceed customer satisfaction and performance expectations. We encourage you to try our products and judge for yourself. See, smell, and feel the difference of the purity and potency of CPTG essential oils.

 

Q: Why do your essential oils smell so much better than other essential oils on the market that claim to be therapeutic grade?

A: Aroma is an excellent indication of true purity. A 100% pure essential oil will elicit powerful emotional responses and will not be overbearing in any one note. Many people have described dōTERRA’s CPTG essential oils as “sweet” or “extremely pleasing fragrances”. This is because when plants are grown in a region in which it is indigenous, with proper nutritive soil conditions, air quality, weather/moisture, are harvested at the right time and carefully distilled, the essential oil extract will be pure and of the highest quality, thus having a fragrance that exceeds that of oils that have been diluted or synthetically produced. Unfortunately, there are many essential oils on the market that claim to be “therapeutic grade”, “100% pure”, or “100% natural” that do not follow strict standards for purity and potency. The best way for a consumer to know the quality and value of any product is to experience it for themselves.

 

Q: Do you grow your own plants and own your own farms?

A: We have found that a primary key to superior essential oil quality is the location in which the plant is grown. For this reason, we carefully source our essential oils from all over the world, rather than from a few locations that are not native habitats for the plants. For example, our Lavender is grown in the high altitudes of France, our Lemon comes from Italy, and our Frankincense is sourced from Oman. Because our management team is trusted and respected by global producers, we are able to secure precious crops for essential oil production from preferred suppliers.

 

Q: I have been involved with another network marketing company in the past and am looking to build a relationship with a company that will be committed to the products, consumers, and consultants. How was your company founded, and how can I be sure that I can trust this company’s management?

A: The founders of dōTERRA are a group of healthcare and business professionals who came together in the spring of 2008 with a common vision of bringing together a new standard of therapeutic-grade essential oils to the world. The founders have several years’ experience in the direct-selling industry and have earned degrees from top universities. Prior to forming dōTERRA, the founders had successfully managed several large companies, which flourished under their management. They are well-respected, honest, hard-working individuals who have sacrificed much to bring this company to fruition. They are successfully achieving their dream of bringing the purest, most effective essential oils to the world. (To read dōTERRA’s Mission Statement, please click here.)

 

Q: I love dōTERRA’s products, but am hesitant to become involved in direct sales. If I decide to join, are there opportunities for me to learn more about the products and to learn how to build my own business with dōTERRA?

A: dōTERRA recognizes that as essential oils are becoming more mainstream, there is a greater need for education. dōTERRA provides exceptional educational opportunities for all people interested in learning how CPTG oils can be used as a self-care wellness alternative. These events are offered throughout the year from one of the leading essential oil experts, Dr. David K. Hill, as well as other guest presenters. In addition, we offer training workshops, webinars, and business-building tools to help you embrace the business prospect and become successful in your efforts to distribute our products through person-to-person contact and globally through personalized web shopping sites.

 

Q: Are dōTERRA’s essential oils organic?

A: dōTERRA’s CPTG essential oils exceed industry standards. Because organic certification varies from country to country, province to province, and in the US, from state to state, it is not currently possible to acquire all oils under certified organic status. However, through the GC/MS analysis process, we are able to determine if any chemical residue exists in the essential oil, e.g., pesticides, herbicides, extenders, and solvents. With this rigorous analysis process, we are able to ensure that all CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils offered by dōTERRA are absolutely pure as nature intended and a step above organic.
