dōTerra Essential Oils
What Are Essential oils ?
Essential oils have been known since the beginning of time. They were used to improve health and wellness, relive symptoms and help people feel better after illnesses.
Since medicine became focused on drugs, prescribing “ a pill for every ill”, essential oils lost some of their popularity.
Essential oils are natural compounds extracted from plants, seeds, bark, roots, flowers and other parts of plants. The oils capture the plant’s scent and flavour or “essence” of their source. They can be used individually or blended for maximum benefits.
My first experience with essential oils was almost 2 years ago when I knew almost nothing about them. To me, they were just “smelly things” that made me feel well.
My husband was recovering from recent heart attack and was recommended a local meditation/mindful therapy class. Sadly ( or luckily I should say) it didn’t work on him. In fact, it made him feel even worse - more stressed, more anxious and more frustrated. Then he met a qualified nurse and she gave him hope and explained mindfulness is not only meditation, he could beat the stress using aroma therapy. It didn’t take long, we had a plan for action - essential oils!
The diffusers were established in our living room and the bedroom. It was like magical steam - they were running day and night! Soon we realised the quality was important. There was a difference between the oils we used - some lasted longer, some smelled more like perfumes and had no effect. The cheaper the oil was , the easier they blocked up our diffusers. We start searching for good quality oils and that was difficult and quite disappointing at the same time - we spent money hoping ‘thats the one’ but it wasn’t until this summer that became true.
I was in Bulgaria ( my home country ) and by a pure fortunate accident I met Dani and Sava, friends of mine, lovely couple who lived in USA! I’ve heard they were working for dōTERRA , company that makes oils. To me that was just another name of ‘natural oils’ on the market.
We had a quick chat about the oils. I couldn’t stay any longer as mosquitos were eating me alive! Dani felt so sorry for me and gave me little bottle and said’ try this’. It was a miracle - till the end of the night I didn’t have even a single bite! They had one more day before they left back to USA and I asked to meet and talk again about the oils. I wanted to know more, that stuff was incredible! There was no secret, just a product that contained pure oils! Exactly what I was looking for! I dare to say that day changed mine and my family lives!

Why start with oils?
Because they are the bridge to natural health. Oils themselves are tiny molecules, that carry beneficial ingredients to the cells. They are carriers of various nutrients to the cells in the body that aid natural healing. They do not heal by themselves, but can interact with your body in many ways. Applied on the skin or inhaling the aromas, essential oils stimulate areas of the limbic system - part of the brain responsible for emotions, behaviour, even involved in forming memories. That explains why familiar smells can trigger memories or emotions.
