Let's Get Real About Essential Oils
You probably landed on this page because you saw a blog post or a news segment about essential oils and you're thinking "Okay, what's all the hype really about?"
Do They Really Work?
There are hundreds of studies around the efficacy of essential oils, but rather than get caught up in a cyclone of stats and case studies I’m going to tell you about my personal experience with them (and if science is your thing, I would strongly recommend exploring what the American Botanical Council and the National Library of Medicine have to offer on the topic of essential oils).
Back in 2014 I had foot surgery. It was a terrible experience because my foot didn’t heal quickly. It was swollen, with scars that looked terrible and I had chronic pain. A friend sent me some samples of Deep Blue, Cypress and Frankincense oils. I used the Deep Blue for the pain, the Cypress for the swelling and the Frankincense for the scars. Well after about a week, my swelling went down. my scars had faded, and I was able to stop taking my daily dose of Advil.
I was intrigued to say the least.
I Have More Energy & I've Never Felt Better
Today, essential oils are a core part of my self care program for both my physical and emotional health. I still diffuse Cypress regularly. It helps me go with the flow of life instead of being a perfectionist. Citrus oils like Lemon help me focus, Wild Orange makes me happier, and Grapefruit Oil in my water makes me remember to honor my body.
I even experience their benefits internally, in the form of softgel supplements that help me sleep through the night, recover sore muscles after cycling, and address hormonal changes in my body.
As a former endurance cyclist and college rugby player, I began taking vitamins and supplements in my late teens. For decades I'd stare down at my bright yellow pee each morning, and wonder how much money I was flushing down the toilet because my body sure wasn't using them properly. With doTERRA oils and supplements, that’s never a question.
The Oils I Trust (And Why)
As a "Wellness Lifestyle Coach" I help people master connecting their mind, body and spirit. I live for helping people seize the moment, feel grounded in who they are, and live powerfully by taking action. Sometimes, that means helping them overcome their self-made limitations, and in other cases, it’s a matter of helping them discover natural solutions to improve their physical, emotional and mental well-being.
When it comes to supporting their bodies and my own, I only trust doTERRA oils and products.
They’re pure, they’re potent, and doTERRA goes through 11 levels of testing for purity. Whether you’re applying them topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, you will be as confident as I am because you will feel them working.
