Why did I choose essential oils?
My body does not absorb pills very well. I also experience every side effect and sometimes even some that aren’t documented yet (some side effects have a permanent and lasting effect-death). Essential oils seemed to make sense. Mother Nature gave us a beautiful self-healing planet to live on. That’s not to say we don’t need doctors or that I don’t use doctors, please don’t misunderstand me. Plants have been used as medicine for thousands of years (because they work)! The medicinal use of plants is mentioned in the Bible. Because essential oils are natural it’s easier for our bodies to use them, our bodies know what to do with the oils. Essential oils are also more potent, so we only need 1-2 drops.
Why I Choose doTERRA Essential Oils?
I have been using essential oils for many years, but it wasn’t until 3 years ago that I found and fell in love with doTERRA. doTERRA oils can be taken internally (look for the Supplement Facts information on the side of the bottle). If an oil is safe for internal use the bottle will have Supplement Facts like the bottle of Cassia in the first picture. The second picture has a bottle of Cypress which is not safe for internal use.
With doTERRA, you can be sure that you are getting 100% pure essential oil. Try rubbing a drop of doTERRA oil and a drop of another’s brand essential oil between your fingers (different fingers for each oil). If the other oil leaves an oily feel on your fingers you know it’s been cut with a carrier oil. doTERRA doesn’t add a carrier oil, you know you have 100% essential oil with doTERRA. If you do a sniff test you can smell the difference also. Some other brands smell perfume-y or chemical-y. doTERRA oils come with an expiration date so you can keep track of the shelf life of your oils. doTERRA is committed to sourcing the best oils in the world, direct from the grower, through ethical sourcing practices and places great value on the expert knowledge of local farmers. Our oils are unique and unrivaled. Each batch of doTERRA essential oil undergoes seven different testing procedures by a third-party laboratory and surpasses USDA organic standards. You can even see the GC/MS reports for your bottle by typing in the code from the bottom here. doTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production and making sure they are treated ethically. I really could go on all day about doTERRA but I’ll let you read direct from doTERRA at your leisure.
