Essential Oils

Essential Thrive is a doTERRA certified site.

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?

Essential oils are the aromatic compounds that are extracted from the leaves, flowers, roots and other parts of plants through a distillation process. These oils are known to have both physical and emotional benefits for a natural lifestyle. There are three methods to use essential oils: Aromatically, Topically & Internally.

AROMATICALLY
Diffuse your oils. Some oils can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also purify the air of unwanted odors. You can also place 1-2 drops of oils in your hands, rub them together and deeply inhale (over nose & mouth) for immediate effect.
TOPICALLY
 Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. Simply place 1-2 drops on your hands, rub together and apply to the targeted area. Some of the best places for oils include the bottom of the feet, back of the neck, chest and stomach.
INTERNALLY
 Essential oils can also be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of health conditions. The easiest way to know which doTERRA oils are safe to ingest is to look for the Supplement Facts on the bottle. Some of our favorite things to do are cook with our oils, add a few drops to water or place a drop under the tongue for immediate absorption.

FAQS

When you are new to essential oils, you’re going to have a TON of questions (and that is perfect). The Modern Essentials Book is going to be your go-to reference, and I, along with my Essential Thrive Family, am here to help you on your journey. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions about oils.

AMOUNT TO USE?
One drop will do it! These oils are highly concentrated – we’re talking one drop of peppermint oil is the equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea. Using a carrier oil will help spread the love over your body.
WHAT IS A CARRIER OIL?
These are oils like coconut, grapeseed, almond, jojoba and avocado oil. Use them to spread the oil more evenly across the skin and cover more surface area. Great for sensitive skin. My favorite is Fractionated Coconut Oil.
WHAT IF I GET THEM IN MY EYES?
Always use a carrier oil if an oil gets into your eyes. Never water! That will make it spread and go deeper into the eyes. A little coconut, jojoba, avocado or olive oil will help ease the burn.
DILUTIONS FOR BABIES & GERIATRICS?
Both children and the elderly have delicate skin so it is recommended to dilute all oils before applying. Try one drop of oil to one-tablespoon carrier oil (Fractioned Coconut Oil is a great option). Commonly used oils include lavender, grapefruit, lemon, melaluca, orange and Roman chamomile.
SUN LIGHT & CITRUS OILS?
Certain oils can react to the UV light of the sun, a phenomenon called photosensitization. These are our citrus oils, including lemon, lime, grapefruit, bergamot and any blends that contain these oils. The best way to avoid any type of sensitivity is to stay out of the sun for 24 hours if applying these oils to the skin.
