These essential oils will support every area of your health, and it won’t take long before you wonder what you did before having these bottles in your hands.
Top Reasons To Rock A Life Using doTERRA Essential Oils
1. To Support Physical Health
I have dove deep into the research looking at the constituents of essential oils that give them their therapeutic properties. One example is Menthol, the main chemical component in peppermint. It relaxes smooth muscle due to its ability to keep calcium channels working optimally. This effect causes menthol to be a main contributor to peppermint essential oil’s ability to promote digestive health.
After reading through literature and personally experiencing the effectiveness of doterra essential oils in my life, I prefer to use them as natural tools to optimize my health. Instead of reaching for a synthetic pharmaceutical, I will first reach for an essential oil.

2. To Support Emotional Health
When we inhale an essential oil, the aromatic molecules interact with the olfactory (smell) receptors in our nose, which then link directly to the limbic system of the brain. The limbic system is a part of the brain where our emotions and memories are stored. This connection causes a rush of feelings and emotional response to the aroma based on any memories that are associated with that smell. Recent research has shown that we also have olfactory receptors in our skin, so we are also activating those receptors when essential oils are applied topically to the skin.
Understanding the unique chemical profile of each essential oil allows us to choose specific essential oils to trigger desired emotions and help us manage our mood. For example, Wild Orange contains limonene which causes an uplifting effect and can be used to promote energizing and elevating emotions. Roman Chamomile contains alpha-pinene which causes a calming and antidepressant effect and can be used to promote soothing emotions.
Have you ever smelled a scent that instantly brought up a specific memory or emotion?
I will never forget the first time I smelled Cedarwood essential oil. The smell instantly connects me to my father. I grew up living in a separate household from him and would visit him every third weekend. Saying goodbye was always a challenge for me and would involve me burying my face full of tears into his chest. Guess what he smelled like when I hugged him?
Essential oils are an important tool in my tool kit for supporting my emotional health each day. I use essential oils in my exercise routine and meditation practice to cultivate specific emotions. I use them in my office for focus and lowering stress. I use them in my car to stay calm when I’m stuck in traffic. I use them in my sauna and before bed to help me relax and sleep.
3. To Reduce Toxic Burden On The Body
Did you know the average home is 5-10x more polluted than the air outside?!
Since we aren't able to see the environmental pollutants indoors the way we can often see outdoor pollutants, they're hidden. According to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Environmental Working Group, the compounds found in cleaning products, air fresheners, cosmetics, carpets, furniture, electronics, and plastics in our homes contain chemicals that are linked to serious health issues.
I used to be a cosmetic junkie. I had a bathroom FULL of beauty products. I spent thousands of dollars over the years on body and face washes, toners, serums, masks, lotions, sprays, shampoos, conditioners, and makeup. The Huffington Post released an article stating that the average woman puts 515 synthetic chemicals on her body every day without knowing, and it made me realize I was one of those women. Not only was I putting synthetic chemicals on my body every day, I was also exposed to toxic chemicals by cleaning and taking care of my home.
Those chemicals wreak havoc on our bodies.
In an effort to balance my hormones and reduce the toxic burden on my body, I slowly transitioned to using more natural products. I tried many different brands before I experienced the purity and potency of doTERRA essential oils in 2016. Some brands I tried weren't strong enough to work well for me, and some brands were not as natural and pure as they claimed to be.
There is no committee or governing body that regulates the purity or claims made by essential oil companies so not all essential oils are created equal. This is one of the reasons why I chose to use doTERRA. They are a company that uses 3rd party testing and provides the best quality Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils. They source their oils from around the globe where they grow abundantly in their natural environment; that's where the magic of their therapeutic properties lives.
Their Source To You resource is an easy way to view the test results and therapeutic properties of every bottle produced. Diligent testing is one of the reasons why medical doctors are collaborating with doTERRA to open Integrative Medical Clinics in North America. Not only are doTERRA products high quality and therapeutic, the culture that exists within the company and my community is a beautiful thing to be a part of.
