3 Cool Things About Essential Oils
The first cool thing is they are 100% Natural & Safe
The first cool thing about dōTERRA essential oils is that they’re 100% natural and safe. There’s nothing added to the oil or taken away from the oil.
They’re just simply pure essential oils with no side effects and no addictions. They’re safe for babies, children, adults and the elderly. Oils are extracts from plants that have amazing health benefits.. A pure oil is about 50-70 times more powerful than herbs.
One drop of peppermint essential oil is equivalent to drinking 28 cups of peppermint tea. So they’re really potent!
What I love about these oils is the CPTG standard. It stands for Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, and it means these oils are completely pure and potent.
Pure means there are no foreign contaminants or fillers.
Potent means that each plant was grown in a part of the world where that plant grows best, resulting in the absolute best chemistry for that plant.
When you have the ideal natural chemistry, the essential oil extracted does exactly what we want it to do for our health.
The second cool thing about essential oils is that they are more effective than many modern approaches to health problems.
Most of you reading this won't have medical training so I’m going to really simplify things so that this makes sense.
Let’s go back to biology basics.
Let’s say this is a cell in your body (hold up your fist), and we know that cells have oily cell membranes. The cell membrane protects the cell, it keeps all the good things in and all the bad things out. Now two of the things that are harmful to our cells are Bacteria and viruses. Bacteria usually form on the outside of the cell and viruses duplicate the DNA on the inside of the cell. All you have to remember is bacteria on the outside viruses on the inside.
Let’s say you went to the doctor with a bacterial infection. What would he recommend for you? (Give you an antibiotic) And after taking the antibiotic for 7-10 days in most cases, it would probably clear up the infection - but it often comes with wreaking havoc on your gut, hormones, and immune system!
Now if you had a virus like the cold or flu, what would he say? (Go home, drink a lot of water, rest and let it run its course) The reason why is because most of the modern recommendations are water-based synthetic agents - and frequently come with side-effects and addictions. Water and oil don’t mix, so if the recommendation from your doctor is water-based, it will have a really hard time penetrating through that oily cell membrane and stopping the duplication of a virus.
Essential oils are different they are oil-based, which means they can permeate that cell membrane! They can work on a cellular level without side-effects or addictions, and they can combat bacteria on the outside of the cell and prevent the duplication of viruses on the inside. That is why they are often more effective than the modern approach to health problems.
The third cool thing is they're cheaper than traditional medical care
The third cool thing about essential oils is that they are cheaper than traditional medical care. Let me explain...
When someone in my family has an ear infection, we rub two drops of lavender and two drops of melaleuca around their ear, and put them to bed. 12 hours later the ear infection is cleared up. It costs us about 95p. Now whether it costs you pay and for your prescriptions, or whether it you don't because you live in a country with free medical care.
Essential oils are still less expensive than the fuel it costs for you to go to the doctors office.
That’s not including the half day of work you probably had to take off for this emergency. We also haven’t taken into account the fact that antibiotics harm your gut, and that you might have to buy extra probiotics for two weeks to fix the damage, which is even more money.
You can save hundreds of pounds a year in medical costs because of essential oils.
Honestly, you can't afford NOT to use natural solutions!
So How Do You Use Essential Oils?
The first way to use essential oils is aromatically. Take your fingers and pinch right above the bridge of your nose.
Right under your fingers is your olfactory nerve.
This nerve sends messages to the limbic system in your brain, which in turns sends messages all over the body. Sometimes people think its hokey to say oils could affect your whole body just by smelling them, but let me illustrate:
When you go to the hospital for surgery and need to be put under, how do they deliver the anesthesia?
They don’t give you a pill, and usually they don’t give you a shot they ask you to breathe through a mask and count down to 10. And most of us are completely under before we ever get to 10.
So when you breathe those synthetic compounds through the mask, your olfactory system is powerful enough to send signals to your body to knock you out in under 10 seconds!
It’s the fastest way to access the brain. This happens exactly the same way with natural compounds found in essential oils. When you breathe in natural compounds from Essential Oils they hit your olfactory nerve and the olfactory nerve sends signals to the limbic system which in turn sends signals to the rest of your body. This can happen in as little as 30 seconds.
There are a few ways to use essential oils aromatically. You can breathe them from your hands, or use them in a diffuser, or breathe them right from the bottle.
This is why I take peppermint and wild orange with me wherever I go. Both are good for lifting the mood and energising!
The second way to use essential oils is topically. You can actually apply oils directly to the skin. For children and people with sensitive skin, you’ll want to dilute them with fractionated coconut oil.
You can even apply oils to the bottoms of your feet - including babies - and it won’t bother them. The pores on the bottom of your feet are really big and the oil absorbs very quickly into the bloodstream. It’s a great way to get oils into your system fast.
The third way to use essential oils is internally. These essential oils are not only safe to use internally, they are RECOMMENDED. The CPTG standard means these oils are a medicinal grade, and are completely safe to ingest - unlike most other brands. You can put them in your mouth or drink them in water. If you don’t like the taste, put them in a veggie capsule. It’s like concocting your own little natural remedy.
