What is an Essential Oil?

An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils and ethereal oils or simply as the oil of the plant from which they were extracted. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the “essence of” the plant’s fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived. The term essential used here does not mean indispensable as with the terms essential amino acid or essentila fatty acid which are so called since they are nutritionally required by a given living organism.

Over 3,000 varieties of volatile aromatic compounds have been identified to date. The nature of an essential oil varies from plant to plant, within botanical families, and from species to species. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits.

Even with pure essential oils the composition of the oil can vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather, making every step of the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil product.

Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in complex essential oil blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Want to learn how to use essential oils?

Lavender and sound sleep.

A friend of me told about using Lavender essential oil for sound sleep.

She has used it for approximately the last 2 weeks, having been applying Lavender to her big toes when she goes to bed. It started when she was a little stressed and having trouble relaxing. She just took the Lavender Touch down across the underside of each toe about twice. And within about 10 minutes, she started to feel as if her eyes were getting heavy.
And since the Touch was beside her bed, she just continued doing it. What she has discovered has been cumulative.
First thing she noticed and on the very first night, instead of waking 5 or 6 times during the night..she slept thru. Probably the first time in a decade. She thought at first she may have been really tired and forgot that she was up and over to the bathroom, so the next night, she decided that when she awoke and went over to the bathroom, she would leave herself a little marker. She was up one time. Not many times
Next night, same deal, she figured it was something she ate or didn’t eat or drank or didn’t drink, slept straight thru.
And at first she didn’t notice anything, but then she realized that she *WAS* noticing something. She was noticing that she didn’t get that dead in the head feeling mid afternoon.
So she is going to continue to use this little miracle. She can’t even see that she has used any of the oil from the Touch applicator! This should last a long time, and so inexpensive. It also stopped the wild dreams she was having. So, if you could sleep more soundly and stop waking up in the middle of the night, why not try it?

Use doTERRA TerraShield as an Insect Repellent!

I recently found a video from a guy(Chris) at YouTube telling about using essential oils as an Insect Repellent. To be quite honest I was a little skeptical so I decided to check it out for myself and bought a vial of doTERRA TerraShield.

Both my friends and I have used it several times and we have the same expirirence as Chris. If the stinky insect repellents you are using not are living up to your expectations give the doTERRA TerraShield a shot, you’ll probably be surprised.

How to Use Essential Oils!

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

HOW DO I USE 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 in one of three methods:

Aromatic
Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also purify the air of unwanted odors.

Topical
Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.

Internal
Essential oils can also be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions.

Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive, healthful effects of essential oils are boundless.

That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise. You’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity.
