what are essential oils
You may have already experienced the aromatic compounds of essential oils. They are all around. Just think of the last time you smelled a rose or lavender plant. Essential oils are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds that can be found in plants (seeds, bark, stems, roots, or flowers). These precious oils protect the plant in many ways. They can also be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications as well as in beauty treatments and cooking.

how to use essential oils
Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. There are 3 ways that doTERRA's essential oils can be used.
Essential oils can be very powerful when used aromatically. Certain oils can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Using a diffuser can also cleanse and purify the air. If you don't have a diffuser, you can also just place a few drops in the palm of your hand and breathe in deeply.
Applying essential oils topically can be very effective because they are easily absorbed by the skin. For example, apply Peppermint on your temples for head tension or on your stomach for digestive support. Always dilute with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil) for children or anyone with sensitive skin.
Essential oils can be used internally by adding to water, taking in an empty capsule, or also for cooking. Internal use provides more targeted and potent health benefits.
Always check the label first to make sure it is safe for internal consumption.
