Essential Oil Uses

Essential oil uses are a hard thing to define, because essential oils have a wide range of uses from balancing emotions and easing tension, to cleansing skin and mending topical imperfections.

Choosing a brand of essential oils can be challenging. I chose doTERRA because they are simply the best essential oils on the market. Click here to see what sets doTERRA apart from the rest.

Plants have been used in homeopathic remedies and personal care for centuries. Although the natural way has somewhat gotten lost in our development of the Western Way, there is a new era arising of an integrative lifestyle. 

For those of us who have become aware of the toxic overload of chemicals in food, personal care, and cleaning products; essential oils have become a perfect natural alternative. Whether it be combating anxiety, cleaning your skin and hair, or scrubbing your toilets there is an essential oil up to the task.

Some oils are currently in trials for natural cancer remedies, supporting cellular regeneration, skin regrowth, and preventing heart disease.

There are many, many uses in daily life for essential oils. Here, I've sorted the uses into topical, internal, and aromatic (aromatherapy). Each of these topics covers what to use and how to use them.

It’s important to remember that not all essential oils can be ingested, and some of them need to be diluted with a carrier oil (coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, etc.) before they can touch your skin. doTERRA essential oils, for example, are very concentrated, so in their pure form, some of them will burn your skin if you do not dilute them. All doTERRA oils will specify on the bottle if they can be taken internally, and if they need to be diluted for topical use.

The only oils I ever recommend using are doTERRA's because their oils are the purest on Earth. Each batch of doTERRA oils come with a link, where you can look up the third-party lab results of your specific oil, to view the purity. doTERRA believes in absolute transparency, and purity of the oil is more important to them than anything else.
