What are essential oils?
Essential oils are a natural fragrance sourced from plants that has some serious health and emotional benefits. But they do more then that. They can be used for food preparation, cleaning products and beauty treatments.
Why are they good for us? At any given time there are 90,000 toxins around us. They can also be found in some of the everyday products we us. And while we can limit them we can not remove them all. But the one thing we can do is make a choice to what we use on ourselves and our family and create a healthy home environment. This bring me to the world of essentials oils so a big magical and warm WELCOME to you.
How are essential oils used?
For a lot of people the thought of using oils to improve there help or emotional well being is just plain weird. But in actually fact they can really affect your moods and emotions including children’s.
Each smell will have a different effect on the person. They will help you look within and create a magical environment for your wellbeing. Personal having lavender oil in my diffuser of night time helps calm my children and myself down. Every night I put it in my oil burner and diffuser so my house and their rooms smell all lovely and calm.
The main question you probably asking is HOW can they help your moods? The answer is simple. The oils is 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oil and they have the potential to effect every cell of the body whiting 20 minutes and then be metabolised like the nutrients.
It does matter what oil you use because when diffused, essential oils are known to reduce the amount of airborne chemicals and help create greater physical and emotional harmony.
Using essential oils can take daily practice. With essential oils you can;
- Inhale the beautiful scents to lift your mood, boost concentration and relieve stress
- Diffuse your oils to create a soothing environment
- Whip up yummy natural recipes
- Create your own beauty products
- Replace toxic chemicals in your home
- Heal sore muscles and scratches
The way they can be used are;
TOPICALLY – Apply to your pressure points and any area where there is discomfort. *For sensitivity dilute with a carrier oil
AROMATICALLY – Inhale by dropping on your hand and cupping over your nose. Use in a diffuser to fill the space and change your emotional state / mood and energy of a space. You can also use an oil burner if you don’t have an diffuser. But a diffuser will give you more benefits to getting the most out of the oil.
Another question you might have is why doTERRA?
Partnering with the purest grade oil company in the world was on of the easiest choices I have ever made.

Take a look at this video below on how to help children and teenagers with using oils.
Essential oils to many still are seen as this hippie thing that are put in oil burners, whilst yes you can do that (they will make your home smell amazing) there are now many studies that have shown that oils work in harmony with your body for your emotional, physical and spiritual wellness needs and I for one are always looking for ways to improve my emotional, physical and spiritual wellness. I also want my kids to be able to connect with there emotional wellbeing too and oils are great for that.
