Why I Chose doTERRA

I get this question a lot so thought I would revisit this after I read a fellow oilers explanation that 100% agree. I have used essential oils for over fifteen years and in the beginning was not aware of the potential hazard I was putting into my body.

Seems like everyone is jumping on the oil bandwagon recently, I see oils EVERYWHERE! often I see labels on them like “don’t use around children” or “do not put on skin”. I’ve always wondered why this is the case, then I learned oils are not governed by anyone so really someone could put water and a part of lavender plant in a bottle and label it a “pure” essential oil. This is why I looked for more for my family- oils that could provide medicinal benefits that I could actually use around my child. And I found doterra and am blown away at how they do things. So what makes doterra different?
.
CPTG standard aka Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade– yes its a term doterra created because they want to let everyone know what standards they are going to follow when they source and package an oil. It is the most stringent of all essential oil standards to ensure there are no contaminants, fillers, or anything harmful in the oils AND they are not diluted. These oils are beyond organic as far as standards go
.
Sourcing– Doterra travels worldwide to find the purest oils where the plans indigenously grow. Think of it this way would you rather have a pineapple grown in Utah or one grown in Hawaii? The find communities to partner with and pay the farmers a LIVING wage. They also help build schools, running water, housing, health clinics, and more to these 3rd world communities. They oversee the process to make sure that the plants are cared for as they should be- did you know that simply picking a plant during a certain time of day makes a difference in potency? Not to mention that you are using the correct part of the plant that has medicinal qualities
.
Testing– Doterra runs ELEVEN tests on each liter of oil to ensure it is pure and potent (meaning it has the chemical composition it is supposed to). Every liter is also sent out for third party testing and you can go to www.sourcetoyou.com and put in the lot number from the bottle in your hand to see the 3rd party results! No other company is as transparent as this, they want you to know you are getting the very best!

Medical Research– this is huge! Some of the largest university hospitals in the US (john hopkins to name one) partnered with doterra to do medical research that will be published (or has been) on PubMed. Doterra oils are chosen for this research because of their consistency in the chemical compounds in the oils and the purity. For instance they make sure if you purchase a bottle of lavender today and then purchase one in two years the chemical composition will be IDENTICAL. .

Know that when I talk about oils and how I use them I can only voice how I use doterra oils as I would not use oils from a health food store in the same manner nor would I expect them to work as well.

Also, PLEASE do not buy oils off amazon- it is crazy easy to reseal these little bottles and sell them diluted or as something else plus you can get them at wholesale with education with no strings attached so why not save more and have the peace of mind that you are getting the real thing! 25550127_10156977475677995_8923550320460065989_n.jpg

After the Distillation Process

Have you ever wondered what happens to rest of the plant material that is left after the distillation process?
 
This was doterra’s corporate response and I loved it!
 
“After the essential oil is distilled each farmer determines the best way to reuse the spent plant material. These uses vary depending on the type of plant material, the region where it is grown, and the preference of the farmer. Some of the common ways the spent material are used include:
 
*as compost for the farmer’s fields
*as a recycled fuel source for the distillation boilers
*as a by-product that is sold as compost to the community
*as animal fodder
*as part of a closed-loop energy cycle where the spent material can even be used to generate enough energy to contribute back to the local energy grid
 
Every effort is made, where possible, to find ways to replenish the environment in a positive way.”
How amazing is that?29342377_10157280104117995_2706207933422632960_n.jpg

Whipped Body Butter

I have been making my own homemade body butter for about two years and cannot imagine using store bought lotion ever again.  It is super easy, cheap and all natural which makes it amazing for the skin!  Check it out:

  • 1 cup organic shea butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons beeswax
  • 1/2 cup almond or grapeseed oil
  • vegetable glycerin (optional and only need 2 tsp or so)
  • 20 drops your favorite essential oils (I love frankincense, cypress, geranium, myrrh, lavender, patchouli,–all great for skin and cypress helps with pain!)

Place shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax in a pint size mason jar with a lid and submerge the jar into a simmering pot of water.  Once it is melted pour the contents into a medium size mixing bowl (handle the jar carefully as it will be very hot). Add the almond oil and vegetable glycerin.  Once it is hard, add the essential oils and use a basic kitchen hadn’t mixed to whip into an amazing fluffy butter.  Scoop into glass jars and enjoy!
