What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants. They have very powerful healing properties. For over 5000 years, a variety of different cultures have used essential oils for healing many different health conditions. Check out this great video on essential oils : )



Where can I buy them?

When choosing essential oils it is vital to choose oils that are 100 percent pure and also therapeutic grade. Not all essential oils are high quality and many have synthetic ingredients. That is why I chose to partner with doTERRA essential oils for the following reasons:

  1. Their oils are fairly priced and of the highest quality.
  2. Their company sources oils from their natural environments and are distilled with great precision and care.
  3. The company cares about your health and wellness.
  4. The oils are of a pure therapeutic grade that can be safely used on your family
  5. doTERRA is supported by top doctors and used by well known and highly respected hospitals.
  6. doTERRA is a company filled with incredibly caring people whose mission is to help people all over the world. The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is dōTERRA International’s registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to improving lives through partnering with organizations that offer hope to millions around the world. Healing Hands seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant  Here is a link to learn more about Healing Hands.

  1. I just watched the video explaining the Do Terra essential oils.
    I’d like to know which of the oils are meant specifically for pain (in neck and shoulders).

    1. For muscle and joint pain I recommend an essential oil called Deep Blue. It is a blend of essential oils(Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum and Osmanthus) to ease muscle, joint, connective tissue and other pain. It may be applied topically with or without a carrier oil. It also comes in a roll on.

      Other people also really like an essential oil blend called AromaTouch. It is a blend of essential oils (Basil, Cypress, Grapefruit, Lavender, Marjoram, Peppermint) that some find more soothing than Deep Blue and more effective for some types of pain. I personally find Deep Blue to be the most effective for muscle pain. Frankincense is also an incredible oil that is really great for decreasing inflammation in the body.

      Hope you feel better soon and find comfort and relief through these amazing oils.
