why essential oils

too many oils to choose from?

There are many companies that manufacture and sell essential oils. How should you choose a brand? For me, it was the testimony of a friend, personal research on different companies and hearing the vision and commitment to the highest standard from the owners. I heard my friend talk about the oils and how she used them on herself and family with great results. I’m forever thankful that I trusted her initial judgement and made the leap to natural health and wellness.


Currently, there are no regulatory standards for the labeling of therapeutic grade essential oils. This means many products claiming to be 100% pure may, in fact, contain fragrant synthetic chemical substitutes to dilute or replace more expensive essential oil extracts.

do you know where your oil is coming from?

Personally, I would have trouble recommending something to be used on my family and friends that wasn’t tested or regulated. Fortunately, the brand I use makes it easy to recommend them. I choose to use doTERRA essential oils, and this is why:

  • They source their oil from its natural LOCATION.
  • They make sure the oil is HARVESTED at the right time.
  • They work to distill the oil using the correct METHOD and TEMPERATURE.
  • They pay for INDEPENDENT TESTING of their oils to ensure quality above and beyond general therapeutic standards.
