How dōTERRA Essential Oils Changed My Life and How They Can Change YOURS!

You probably know by now from reading my blog that I’m super into living naturally. I’m a vegetarian and eat fully plant-based as often as possible, I swapped out all my health & beauty products for all natural ones, and I’ve been focusing more on yoga and meditation.

I’ve always been super curious about essential oils but never really knew where to begin with them. I knew a few things about them here and there but not enough to feel confident enough to know how exactly to use them, what they’re used for, and which ones to get.

I was recently invited to a dōTERRA essential oils party and I had such a blast at it. For those of you who have never been to an oil party it’s basically an excuse to get together, drink wine, and smell the yummiest smelling oils – sometimes the parties are even called “Sip and Sniff Parties” – how fitting! The wine is not what I’m here to talk about though (*sips wine*).

If I’m being honest I never expected to learn as much as I did at this party and fall completely in love with everything having to do with essential oils.

At a dōTERRA party they talk you through the top 10 oils. The reason these are the top 10 is not only because they’re the most popular, but there are also so many different health issues these oils address as well as countless combinations you can create with them.

At the end of the party I decided to purchase a kit which came with the top 10 oils, a book that goes over every single dōTERRA oil, what it’s used for, and how to use it, and 2 tubes of beadlets.

Beadlets are just like a medicine soft gel minus all the harsh chemicals and ingredients – they’re purely essential oils.

And speaking of the purity of the oils, dōTERRA oils are what they call Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG). What this means is that these oils aren’t regulated by the FDA because they’re so pure they had to come up with their own certification.

This is not a bad thing though! When comparing dōTERRA oils to other essential oils, dōTERRA is the purest you can get. When you get a bottle of dōTERRA essential oil, every single drop in that bottle is pure essential oil.

On the flip side when you purchase a different brand of essential oil that is regulated by the FDA, the FDA only regulates 3-5 drops of pure essential oil. That means the rest of the bottle is either filled with a carrier oil or nasty chemicals that you definitely do not want on your skin! Especially when it takes only 22 seconds for your oils to reach the brain, 2 minutes for them to be found in the bloodstream, and 20 minutes until they can be found in every cell of your body. Crazy, right? That’s why we don’t want to be putting harsh chemicals on our bodies!

What’s another really awesome thing about dōTERRA is that each essential oil bottle has both a code and an expiration date on the bottom. The expiration date is pretty self explanatory, but the code is where it gets really cool. If you plug this code into you can not only see when your bottle of oil was filled, but read an entire quality report on that specific bottle of oil!

When it comes down to it, there are no essential oil companies that can even compare to dōTERRA.

My Experience with dōTERRA Oils

So like I said earlier I purchased the top 10 oils. One reason being I know I’d get tons of use out of every single one of these oils, and another being price-wise it made much more sense to just purchase the kit rather than purchase a few oils here and there (plus the kit includes a free yearly membership which allows you to shop all their oils at wholesale price rather than retail at 25% off!)

I also purchased this kit of rollerballs from amazon. With rollerballs you can mix and match different oils and create your own blends of oils and then roll them right onto your skin just as you would with a roll-on perfume bottle.

And if you don’t know what sorts of blends to create, there are tons of recipes on Pinterest!

As for my experience, these essential oils have absolutely changed my life. I’d like to tell you which ones are my favorite, but if I’m being completely honest it’s so hard to have a favorite when there are so many amazing ones! But, if I had to choose a favorite from these top 10, I think I’d have to say Frankincense.

For me, Frankincense is a super comforting oil from its smell to everything it’s good for. There’s a reason why it’s called the King of Oils and has been valued equally to gold.

But I’m not showing favoritism to any oils more than the others – they are all incredible in different ways. My allergies are now actually bearable, I get way less headaches and stomach aches, my immune system has never been so strong, my skin is clear and thriving – honestly I can go on and on!

And what’s even better than the fact that I’m seeing results from these oils is the fact that they are all natural! I no longer have to worry about what I’m putting on or in my body because there are no harsh chemicals or unhealthy ingredients in any of these oils – just pure oil taken from nature.

YOU Can Use dōTERRA Essential Oils Too!

There’s not one person in my life who I don’t recommend dōTERRA essential oils to, and the reason being is that they’re so incredibly versatile.

From the various ways to use them, which include aromatically, internally, and topically, to all the different oils and their uses, it’s impossible to not find at least 1 oil that works for you in some way or another.

      Incorporating yoga/meditation and the oils together has been life changing. There are so many great balancing, grounding, and anti-anxiety oils that are soooo great to pair with meditation. It really has been a great experience to combine the two!

    I’m also replacing all my health & beauty products for natural ones. Really happy to find someone that has done the same. I’m not very keen on essential oils but will consider to give them a go.

    • 04/27/2018 / 8:44 pm

      Essential oils have been one of my favorite ways to swap out my products for safe and natural ones. I barely have to take medicine anymore, am no longer using harsh chemicals on my face in the form of face washes, and have even swapped out lemons in lemon water for lemon oil because there’s no acidity in the lemon oil which means my tooth enamel is safe! They’ve definitely changed my life in many ways

    I bought a starter kit of oils and a diffuser but haven’t really used them aside from the lavender sometimes. I’ve been having allergies so I’ll have to try some of the oils that help with respiratory function!

    • 05/05/2018 / 11:20 am

      Absolutely try them! Lavender, lemon, and peppermint are our signature seasonal blend. My mother put them together in a rollerball and rolls it on her wrists, temples, and bottom of feet everyday and her allergies have vanished – I definitely recommend trying that out!

  8. 05/17/2018 / 2:36 am

    These are one of my favourite essential oils ever!
    Will definitely get my hands on some new scents! xx

    • 05/17/2018 / 12:34 pm

      Yesss! Definitely do! I have a new order coming in today and I’m soo excited!
