What is an essential oil? 

Essential Oils are made from plants for physical and emotional benefits. They are distilled from leaves, flowers, tree bark, seeds, or rind of fruit in concentrated amounts. Typically one drop of a dōTERRA® essential oil has a powerful effect making them affordable at just pennies per use! Click the button below to view a short video clip introducing essential oils...

How do I use essential oils?

You will soon learn that there are hundreds of ways to use dōTERRA® essential oils, including relaxation, personal hygiene, household cleaning, cooking, and supporting a healthy body. Every oil has at least one of three application methods: Aromatic, Topical, or Internal.
 
For Aromatic Use ~ Breathe in or use a diffuser to open up airways, improve mood, or freshen the air.

For Topical Use ~ Use a carrier oil when applying to bottoms of feet or affected areas to target specific needs.

For Internal Use ~ Drop in water, under tongue, or in veggie capsule to support mouth, throat, digestive system, or overall health.

What are some basic safety tips? 

1) Photosensitivity - No sunbathing after applying citrus essential oils. Citrus oils are sensitive to the sun and you should avoid direct sunlight to the exposed area for at least 12 hours. Oils applied underneath clothing should be fine.
 
2) Hot Oils - If it starts to burn, skip the water. Use a carrier oil or whole fat milk. Because essential oils don't mix with water, applying water to the area can actually drive the burn in deeper. Ouch!
 
3) Avoid These Areas - Never put essential oils in your eyes, inside ear canal, or up nose. However, you may apply oils around the eye bone in a C shape, on ear cartilage and behind ear bone, or diffuse essential oils.
 
4) Dilution - Use a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil when applying essential oils topically to avoid skin sensitization.
 
5) Safe Storage - The majority of all adverse reactions to essential oils by children have been as a direct result of accidental overdose and ingestion in large amounts. Keep out of reach of children. Use child proof safety caps.

Co-Impact Sourcing & dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation

There are several ways to produce essential oils, and not all essential oils are created equal.

We make it a top priority to protect the environment during the production process and provide fair treatment of all harvesters and growers.

These kinds of projects include funding for and building of schools, health clinics, training facilities, and clean water systems. The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation also partners with a variety of other organizations to support disaster relief; anti-human trafficking prevention, rescue, and rehabilitation; microloan programs; and feminine hygiene education. Your donation could save a child from human trafficking, repair a home devastated by a natural disaster, or help provide someone with access to healthcare.
