I have been using Essential Oils since my late teens and used it for myself and then later on all my children. I have never liked the idea of using chemicals on myself or around the home, and so I learnt how to use essential oils around the house in a variety of different ways......you can get quite creative! It became...and still is, a standing joke in my family that if anyone got anything wrong I would say 'put tea tree on it'!
Then, many years later, whilst building my Alternative Health and Wellbeing business, I wanted to be able to sell oils from my website and help others to see the huge health benefits of natural living. Synchronicity came my way via a friend just as I started investigating what companies were out there. She mentioned DoTERRA. As my friend flew to Switzerland, I went straight onto Google and did a lot of indepth research to see how this company differed from the others. Investigation completed.....I was already hooked, and I hadn't even smelled the oils yet! 2 weeks later my lovely box of Essential Oils arrived. Oh my, what a wonderful smell! The best way to describe them is that they smelled 'clean' and fresh. That was is for me.
"... the majority of the oils come from exclusive agreements where the growers and distillers will only sell to doTERRA. So if anybody is telling you they have the same quality essential oil as doTERRA, or that they get their essential oils from the same producers, that simply isn’t the case."
The healing benefits are something I have always knows, but this company took it to a whole new level. They are so pure, the purest in the world actually, that they can be ingested too.
I now use the oils in my Practice as a Reiki Master and Reconnective Healing Practicitioner.....a perfect combination for healing! I also do AromaTouch hand massage
What Makes DoTERRA Different
When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy.
Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.
While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques.
The most common method of extracting essential oils is a low-heat steam distillation process. In this process, pressurized steam is circulated through plant material. The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected. To ensure the highest quality oil extract with the correct chemical composition, the temperature and pressure must be closely monitored. Too little heat or pressure and the oil will not release; too much, and the oil’s composition and potency will be affected.
