Essential Oils

You see them everywhere, on Instagram, Amazon, at Whole Foods, even Home Goods! They are so popular. Does it matter what you use?


Quality and sourcing matter. You already know this. That’s why you buy organic produce, go to the local farmers market and have a slight Nordstroms addiction. Why would the essential oils you use be any different?


The brand I use and trust.

My reasons for choosing this company may be different than most. The #1 reason is: other EDS biofeedback Doctors and technicians with 20 plus experience choose doTERRA because energetically their quality can’t be matched. This is the brand they use in their practice and get results.

My second reason may sound dramatic but true: they changed my life. The first time I was tested for an essential oil in my program (Citrus Bliss) and I learned the benefits, uses and emotional state this would help me remain in I was sold. I experienced first hand the power of oils and what it meant to be in charge of my emotional state.

What are they:
They are the naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.

How are they sourced:
The oils are gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. They also under go rigorous testing standards for something doTERRA has named: Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol - What is it (can this be an expandable text that if they click on it :

I appreciate that when you buy a bottle of essential oils from them you are getting 100 percent pure oil, free of any synthetic compounds or contaminants. You are getting the oil that is on the bottle and it's not diluted with a less expensive oil.

doTERRA’s CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®* quality protocol employs five different analytical methods to ensure doTERRA’s essential oils are both pure (extracts contain only the volatile aromatic compounds of a plant), and potent (extracts have consistent chemical composition from batch to batch). The testing process include gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, FTIR Scan (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy), microbial testing, and organoleptic testing. The CPTG quality protocol requires the use of independent laboratories for standardization and testing.

Top Ten Oil Essentails


The calming essential oil. Apply a drop of lavender essential oil to the temples or diffuse aromatically to help ease tension and for a more peaceful sleep. A drop can also be used to soothe minor skin irritations as it helps skin recover quickly.



Peppermint has many uses. One of my favorites is as a natural energy-booster. Peppermint also promotes healthy respiratory function and clear breathing – just dilute a drop with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil and rub on your chest or simply diffuse it aromatically.

A drop of doTERRA essential oil can also be added to a glass of water to help alleviate occasional stomach upset.



The King of the Oils. Frankincense has many uses, including helping to build and maintain a healthy immune system. Just rub a drop on the back of your neck each morning. That simple routine can also help promote feelings of peace and relaxation.

In addition, frankincense is great for the skin! I use it in my moisturizer on a daily basis. The other way I use it daily is one drop under the tongue to promote healthy cellular function.




Breathe essential oil will help you do just that – breathe easier. This blend was designed to maintain clear airways and breathing and it does a great job of supporting overall respiratory health. It also helps minimize the effect of seasonal threats.

Just add some to your diffuser or dilute and rub a drop or two on the chest and back.



A lot of people know melaleuca as tea tree essential oil. It’s well-loved by many, and for good reason! Melaleuca is renowned for its cleansing, soothing and rejuvenating effects on the skin.

Melalecua also helps purify and freshen the air and protect against environmental and seasonal threats. There’s a reason it’s a must-have for natural cleaning!



This doTERRA blend is one oil I never leave home without, especially if I’m planning on eating out. DigestZen aids in the digestion of foods, soothes occasional stomach upset and maintains a healthy gastrointestinal tract.

Rub a drop on your stomach, add a drop to a glass of water, or, if you’re feeling brave, put a drop under your tongue for amazingly fast relief.



This blue essential oil is helpful for soothing sore muscles and achy joints. Use it pre- or post-workout for a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas and to support healthy circulation to muscles and joints.



Oregano is a wonderful (and powerful) cleansing agent. When it comes to the body, oregano is one powerful oil. It has immune-enhancing benefits and is an excellent source of antioxidants. It even supports healthy digestion and respiratory function. Plus it makes a great addition to homemade soups and sauces. If you are taking it internally I recommend adding it to a Veggie Capsule (available through doTERRA)



This special doTERRA blend is excellent at supporting healthy immune function – rub a drop on the bottoms of your feet each day. You can also diffuse it aromatically to protect against environmental threats and purify the air. It’s great for promoting healthy emotional boundaries, so it’s my go-to for diffusing at family gatherings.
