How do I use Essential Oils?
Learn how to dilute and use oils safely. All application methods are safe when using doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Essential (CPTG) oils appropriately, including aromatic, topical, and internal methods. One, or multiple, application methods can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical applications.
~ Topically ~
Due to their natural molecular composition, essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. Application of essential oils can have immediate, localized benefit to the target area of application. They have restorative and calming properties and can be used effectively with massage and beauty therapy. They are also natural disinfectants. The chemical structure of essential oils also allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body.
~ Internally ~
Essential oils can also be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. Some essential oils have powerful antioxidant properties while others help support healthy inflammatory response in cells. Many essential oils are generally regarded as being safe for dietary use, but some oils should not be taken internally. Do not use any essential oil product internally that does not have the appropriate dietary supplement facts on its label.
(Be sure to use only 100% certified pure therapeutic-grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions. Essential oils should not be used in the eyes, inside the ear canal, or in open wounds. If accidental contact is made, dilute with vegetable oil, DO NOT flush with water Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor’s care.)
~ Aromatically ~
Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways including the stimulation of hormones and other metabolic processes. Aromatherapy is founded on the body’s predictable response to specific olfactory stimuli. Essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy applications. Certain essential oils, when diffused in the air, can be very stimulating while others can be calming and soothing. Beyond emotional benefits, diffusing essential oils can purify air of unwanted odors and some airborne pathogens. Low or no-heat essential oil diffusers are recommended as they do not change the chemical structure of the oil being diffused. Essential oils can also be used as cleansing and purifying additives to laundry and surface cleaners throughout the home.
Using essential oils can be both profoundly simple and life changing at the same time. Working with someone who has used essential oils before will help first-time users have a more beneficial and enjoyable experience. A large amount of information is readily available for those desiring to increase their knowledge of essential oil applications.
Am I required to purchase every month?
Nope! You can buy just once and never buy again if that’s your thing (highly unlikely, we all become addicts 😉)… You can buy once or twice a year, or twice a month! One thing you should know, however, there is a totally awesome, but totally OPTIONAL monthly ordering program – Loyalty Rewards, which allows you to earn free product points and a free oil each month when you opt-in. Almost everyone is in love with this program because we get so much free stuff in return. I have an easy video tutorial that I’ll send you after you sign up, which will talk you through the benefits of the program and ways to get your free oils, or opt-out of it in the future as well.
If I purchase a kit and become a wholesale member, does that mean I have to sell oils to other people?
NO! NO! and NO! Not at all. I have SOOO many oils users who don’t “sell”! The oils are amazing, and I’ll never pressure you to get involved with the business side. doTERRA does have many options for those who would like to earn free oils by sharing them with friends and family, earn a supplemental income, and even replace their income, but it’s only for those who want to be involved! You will be welcomed with open arms, whether you want to jump in and build a business or you’re just wanting to get them for you/your family at the discounted price. All oil lovers are welcome!
How will I know how to use everything?
Education is VERY important to me! Each of my new members receive a personal consultation with ME! We’ll discuss your health goals and be sure you feel completely confident with your new goodies. You’ll also have access to my private online community! It’s a great place to be supported as you learn, hear testimonials from others, and receive quick responses to your questions. I’m super proud of it, and I know it will be a great resource to you!
Our team also has a wonderful resource called Oil Camp – a 2 week online training (through FB) where we share videos, tips, tricks, and challenges on how to use your new essential oils. Upon completion of Oil Camp, you will know the essential oil basics, lots of great info on the top 10 essential oils, and how to implement essential oils into your daily lifestyle.
Can I just order individual bottles of oil?
Yes, but it’s really not an economical choice. Usually the price of your oils at retail are the same or higher than ordering your wholesale memebrship and discounted oils. Choosing a starter kit waives the membership fee and bundles oils together, saving TONS of money. If you do want to custom-create a kit for your needs, just choose the $35 Introductory Packet at checkout and then add the bottles you want individually.
