Essential oils have so many health benefits, in fact too many to list in this post, as doTERRA essential oils are very pure and very strong, I would not personally recommend anyone using Lemon essential oil while they still have breast implants.
The oils can be use 3 different ways:
Aromatically (all oils)
Topically (all oils) Some need to have carrier oils added
Internally (any oil that has supplemental facts on side of bottle)
It only takes 2-3 drops each time you use the oils unless otherwise specified.
No side effects, can be used with other medications.
7 things you should know about Essential Oils:
1 -Essential oils are not really oils. They do not contain the fatty acids that constitute what we would consider an actual oil. Valerie Gennari Cooksley, author of Aromatherapy: Soothing Remedies to Restore, Rejuvenate and Heal defines essential oils as “highly concentrated plant constituents possessing potent medicinal and cosmetic qualities.” However, I think Stephanie Tourles nailed it in Organic Body Care recipes when she said, “I consider essential oils the life force or the soul of the plant.”
Most essential oils are high in antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties: This makes them an excellent addition to your homemade cleaning preparations. Oils that are best for cleaning are: Lemon, grapefruit, eucalyptus, peppermint, melaleuca, lavender, and rosemary.
2 – Essential oils are miniscule in molecular size, which means they are absorbed well by the skin – making them perfect ingredients in personal care items intended to heal, soften, and nourish. However, they do not accumulate in the body over time – they simply offer up their healing properties and then pass on through.
Scientific studies have shown that rosemary essential oil helps your brain perform. Specifically, smelling rosemary essential oil helps memory recall and performance on tests. Interestingly, this study also showed that groups that inhaled either rosemary or lavender essential oil felt much more relaxed than those who inhaled no odor at all.
Fragrance oils and essential oils are NOT the same thing. As a rule of thumb, if you see the word “fragrance” or “fragrance oil” or even “perfume” on anything, you can assume this is synthetic and NOT natural. (Even if it says natural fragrance.)
3 – Essential oils are wholly natural and cannot be patented; which means that you’ll never see an essential oil in a pharmaceutical drug. As such, you can expect that the vast majority of mainstream healthcare practitioners will never recommend essential oils as therapeutic alternatives to drugs. More importantly, because essential oils cannot be patented, drug companies will not waste money studying them. This limits our scientific knowledge of essential oils GREATLY, and the majority of what we know about them are things that have been passed down through thousands of years of personal use and experimentation.
Enormous amounts of plants are needed to produce essential oil. In fact, on the extreme end, it takes 4000 pounds of Bulgarian roses to produce 1 pound of essential oil. Other plants like lavender only take 100 pounds of plant material to produce a pound of essential oil. Still, can you imagine how concentrated essential oils must be, in light of how many plants are used to produce them?
4 – Not all essential oils are created equally, nor does more expensive necessarily mean “better.” I have chose doTERRA brand to teach and educate others BECAUSE of their quality standards. They go to the source of where the plant is native to. They test beyond what the standard is. To test your essential oil to see how “pure” it is, put a single drop of it on a piece of construction paper. If it evaporates quickly and leaves no noticeable ring, it is pure. If you have a ring left, then it is likely diluted by the manufacturer with an oil of some sort (this test will not work for myrrh, patchouli, and absolutes).
5 – An AVERAGE Essential oil will last for at least 5 years (if not 10), so one bottle could literally last you a decade. NOT DOTERRA Brand!! they will NEVER expire. Hopefully that thought will help mitigate the cost involved in purchasing some essential oils. Because they are SO concentrated and only a tiny amount is needed in anything you do, they’ll last you FOREVER. The only exception to this rule is citrus oils, which will see a reduction in potency after 5 years. BUT will still last a very LONG time.
Store your essential oils in dark glass bottles (which they were probably packaged in) and out of direct sunlight. This is simply to help preserve their potency.
6 – USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO HELP YOUR MOOD. Lavender, peppermint, grapefruit, chamomile, lemon, ylang-ylang all help produce happy, joyous moods. Clary sage helps with PMS Rosemary increases focus and concentration. Don’t forget the mood benefits of essential oils. Other blends doTERRA has are: Balance, Serenity, Citrus Bliss and Elevation
7 – “What essential oils do you recommend I buy?” is the number one question I receive.
It’s a tough one to answer, because what EOs you buy depends on what you’re going to use them for. Nonetheless, I’ve narrowed it down to 10 essential oils to consider when starting to use them.
-Peppermint – headaches, clear sinuses and invigorate.
-Melaleuca – for all skin issues
-Lavender – burns, ALL calming things, sleep, relaxing
-Lemon – cleanser, cleaning and add to honey to soothe dry throat
-Frankincense (favorite of mine!) 1 drop under tongue for help with depression and SO MUCH MORE. it’s the King of Oils, blends with everything to make it work better
-Breathe – for help with all respiratory issues. cough, colds, asthma
-Digestzen – LOVE this for help with heartburn, stomach aches! ALL DIGESTIVE ISSUES!
-On-Guard – it’s called the protective blend. use it to build up immunity in blood. Studies have been done on this. Kills MRSA in petri dishes. I diffuse this all the time!
-Deep Blue – for all the sore, achy muscles. LOVE DEEP BLUE!
– Oregano – a natural anti-biotic. use in a capsule when starting to feel sick.
