Essential Oils: A Natural Choice

In today’s world of artificially high healthcare cost and artificial drugs, millions of people are returning to nature to find relief from everyday health concerns. While plants have been used for over a millennia to fight disease and to help ease pain and discomfort, individuals are increasingly beginning to rediscover some of the amazing health benefits of pure, natural essential oils.

Essential oils are made from the roots, bark, leaves, stems, flowers, seeds and sap of plants, trees, bushes and herbs and they are highly concentrated and if they are 100% pure, they have wonderful therapeutic (corrective) benefits.

Using Oils for Emotions

Because the sense of smell is so closely tied to the centers of the brain that deal with emotions, inhaling the aroma of an essential oil is one of the most powerful ways to affect our emotions.

What are Essential Oils?

  • Pure natural extracts created by plants (50-70 times more powerful than herbs)
  • Nature’s defense mechanism for plants and cells
  • Small, light molecules that are steam distilled (or pressed) from plants
  • Safe, effective, affordable alternative to synthetic remedies
  • Highly concentrated blends of natural substances that have been used for thousands of years
  • They have profound health benefits, including antiseptic properties, an ability to lessen pain, ease feelings of depression, enhance memory and decrease inflammation

 

How Plants Naturally Fight Against Natures Threats?

  • Guard against sun damage
  • Attract pollinators
  • Assist during periods of low nutrients
  • Protect during temperature extremes
  • Heal after herbivore eating damage
  • Repel insects
  • Resist microbial attack

Did you know that it only takes:

  • 22 seconds for the Essential Oil’s molecules to reach our brain
  • 2 minutes for the Oils to be found in our bloodstream
  • 20 minutes for them to have affected every single cell of our body

3 Ways to Use Oils

Aromatically, Topically (to the Skin) or Internally

Aromatically

When we smell a scent, odour molecules enter the nose, travelling up receptor sites. One of those is the limbic system or emotional part of the brain. The limbic system is also connected to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress and hormone balance.

It is this connection between smells and the nervous system that explains why essential oils have such a psychological and physiological effect. Simply inhale the aroma of the oil from a bottle, place a few drops in your palms and inhale or diffuse with an essential oil diffuser.

Topically (to the skin)

Because essential oils penetrate the cell wall, they are very effective when applied to the skin. When applied to the feet, the oil enters the blood stream within 30 seconds. They can be applied directly to the area in need, for headaches to the temples, stomach pains to the stomach etc.

If you are using essential oils on the skin, you should use a base carrier like Fractionated or Liquid Coconut Oil which dilutes the strength of the oil so that it can easily be applied to the skin. It is important to follow application guidelines when applying topically.

Internally

Some oils can be taken internally, either with water, neat under the tongue or diluted in a veggie cap with a base carrier that can be ingested.

NOT all oils can be ingested and therefore it is important to read the instructions carefully as only a few companies in the world produce oils that are safe for internal use, dōTERRA is one such company.

“Apart from ‘Life Changing’ I have no idea where to start to tell you how incredible doTERRA essential oils are.

I went to a talk given by Katharine a year ago. I was generally interested in oils and wanted to use some in my yoga studio. After expressing my interest in these oils, my yoga students decided to buy me a ‘Home Essentials Kit’ for Christmas and I have fallen in love with the whole concept.

There are so many wonderful oils and they all do different things whether physically, mentally or emotionally. I have a few favourites, one of which is Oregano, it’s very strong for most people but I love it.

I use Peppermint or Lemongrass with my students before a class and during Shavasana, I put a drop of Lavender on everyone’s eye masks, the  aromas are beautiful and you can tell there is nothing synthetic about them.

The kit I was given was brilliant, it came with ten of the most popular oils and a diffuser. I have since added to my collection and continue to learn more and more about their various uses. I am very grateful to you, Katharine for introducing me to these oils. With Love and Thanks.”     Helen.
