Why Use doTerra Essential Oils and How to use them by Beatrice Bradley

What Are Essential Oils? Why should I use them, and how do I use them?


Essential oils, scientifically speaking, are volatile aromatic compounds. In everyday terms, they are the essence of plants, taken from roots, bark, flowers, seeds, and other plant parts. Wholly natural and found in plants from around the world. Did you know that essential oil is what gives a plant its scent?

You’ve seen the little essential oil bottles on store shelves, maybe you’ve smelled these oils on the person sitting next to you on the airplane or at church. You may have thought, what an alluring perfume? Do you wonder if they are simply a specialty beauty product? A passing new fad? Don’t let essential oils be a mystery. Millions of people use essential oils every single day for cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene, better sleep, uplifting their moods, and more.

Believe it or not, essential oils have been part of keeping people happy, healthy, and feeling good for thousands of years. Ancient civilizations used plant extracts in everyday life.

 What are the suitable uses for essential oils?

For example;

  • Promote healthy-looking skin.
  • Cleanse the air and eliminate odors.
  • Help maintain a healthy respiratory system and feelings of clear breathing.
  • Support good oral hygiene.
  • Promote healthy digestion.
  • Create an uplifting atmosphere in your home or office.
  • Help create a pleasant sleep environment and promote sound sleeping.

. Here are a few examples of ways you can use essential oils if you’re just starting.

  • Diffuse a few drops of essential oil using a diffuser.
  • Place a drop of oil in your hands, rub your palms together, and inhale deeply.
  • Apply essential oils to the wrists and wear as a personal fragrance.
  • Add a drop of oil to your moisturizer or face cleanser to promote healthy-looking skin (try essential oils like Lavender oil or Frankincense oil for this). Put a few drops in a glass of water for internal benefits (Lemon oil and Grapefruit oil work well for this).

Recently I recorded a video describing the details behind the Fragrant Tassel I developed (You can watch it on BeatriceBradleyTravels, my YouTube channel, or my website, www.beatricebradley.com. The center core is unglazed ceramic, so that it will absorb fragrant essential oil. Once the oil is applied ( I use an eyedropper, or you can shake the oil on a few drops at a time ), the surface dries off, and you can place this tassel inside your suitcase to keep your clothing and shoes “smelling great and fresh.” You can also hang the tassel from a lamp somewhere in your room or your closet!

Essential oils, or bottles that say they contain essential oils, are everywhere. I chose to buy doTERRA essential oils to sell on my website, special blends of several fragrant oils; Serenity, Balance, Citrus Bliss, and Whisper.

I am a classically trained Horticulturist and have loved mixing up fragrant oil blends for many years, and now you do not even have to think about blending yourself, there are so many great blends already made. I chose doTERRA oils are for the following reasons:

-All the plants for extracting the oils are ethically sourced and provide jobs for the native people from the area harvesting takes place (jobs like growing, harvesting, etc.).

-doTERRA is an environmentally aware company and is practicing best management growing/harvesting practices

-doTERRA provides many teaching tools to help you understand the beneficial effects and uses, also how to make your blends for desired results.

-doTERRA offers the highest quality Certified Therapeutic Pure Grade oils, not diluted with other ingredients or chemicals. Pure oils

-doTERRA continues to do on-going research about aromatherapy benefits for adults and kids.

Benefits such as getting better sleep, reducing anxiety before a big event, or relieving general stress are high on many wish lists. Aromatherapy using specific essential oils can also help kids concentrate on their studies and retain more information.
