What Are Essential Oils?


What Are Essential Oils?

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils.  These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.  Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination.  In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and healthcare practices.



How Do I Use Essential Oils?

Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications.  They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:

  • Aromatic:  Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing.  Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.
  • Topical:  Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.
  • Internal:  Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.

Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health.  Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless.

That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise.  You’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity.

From time-to-time I will highlight various essential oils here on my blog.  However, if you’d like to learn more now about all of the essential oils offered by doTERRA, then please click HERE.

doTerra Neroli Touch

dōTERRA’s new Neroli Touch essential oil, also known as Citrus x aurantium, is a cousin to Orange and Petitgrain as they all are harvested from the same bitter orange tree. Neroli comes from the flowers of the tree which are delicate but provide us with a powerful tool for our homes. According to research, Neroli instills relaxation, uplifts mood, reduces feelings of anxiousness, and promotes overall well-being. Applied topically, Neroli can be used to soothe skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes.
