Read on to find out more about how these oils can literally change your life!
Essential oils are the pure extracts from plants that are Mothers Nature’s defence mechanism for the plant. These are highly concentrated and are up to 70 times more potent than herbs. Plants produce oils to fight off threats such as mould, bacteria, viruses or fungus. The oils, unlike water, are able to penetrate the cell membrane of the threat thus eliminating the threat to the plant. The same goes for our cells and the cells of threats that may effect us in a negative way!
PLANTS! They are the essential oil particulate that is extracted from the plant (either the leaf/stem/root/flower/crystallised sap or other parts) by using steam extraction. There are other methods such as picking fresh mint and putting it in a cup of boiling water and hey presto – fresh peppermint tea! This however, while it is a refreshing drink, is no where near as potent as using the pure extracted oil.
Basically there are 3 ways you can use them: aromatically, topically, or internally.
Aromatically ~ By inhaling directly from your skin (placing a drop on your palms, rubbing them together, and inhaling deeply for 4 breaths). Another way is by diffusing the oils into the air using a diffuser (best practice says to use an ultrasonic diffuser that does not heat the oil in any way as heating or “burning” the oil effects it’s beneficial properties in a negative way). Depending on the oil, the purpose for use and the size of your room, you may want to use 3-8 drops in your diffuser.
Topically ~ By diluting the oils in a base carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil, vegetable oil, olive oil (only use cold pressed extra virgin!) or another type of carrier oil (there are many different carrier oils available, though fractionated coconut oil the one of the most stable), and applying to the skin in a massaging motion over various areas of the body for desired effects. NOTE: There are different dilution proportions for different ages of people from babies to adults. Please be aware of diluting appropriately so as note to harm the skin or apply the oils too strongly.
Internally ~ By ingesting the oils in either a glass of water, via tea or your favourite smoothy, or taking a drop in a vegecap as part of your daily supplement routine. There is much controversy around ingesting essential oils. The only brand of essentials oils I would ingest is doTERRA as they pump millions of dollars every year into ensuring they produce the absolute highest quality oils on the planet that are certified therapeutic grade essential oils. I would not recommend you go to the supermarket and starting ingesting any of the oils you can find on the shelf, as majority of these oils are synthetic and not good for your insides! Or your outsides for that matter, hence why I now only use DoTERRA!.
There are soooooo many ways you can use essential oils to benefit you and your families daily lives. Here are just a few:
You cannot buy DoTERRA essential oils off the shelf at your local supermarket. But you are in luck! The absolute BEST WAY TO GET THE OILS IS HAVING YOUR OWN ACCOUNT!!! And how do you get that? You ask me!! Contact me if you would like to get your own wholesale account (that’s right, wholesale account means wholesale prices!!) and I can help guide you through setting up your account so you get that absolute BEST DEALS INCLUDING FREE OILS!.
Now, I know I have used a lot of capital letters and exclamation marks in this last paragraph, but that is because I am so excited about now having these oils in my life and how I can use them that I want you to take notice and to have them in your life toooooo!….! Alternatively, you can head to my DoTERRA website and sign yourself up – it’s easy, justfollow the steps below. Or call me on 0413479483 or Facebook message me (even if you don’t live near me – there is always live chats available!) and we can arrange a wellness consult to make sure you get the best oils for your home and family.
You’ll get 25% off retail prices
You’ll get free oils (they are pretty generous with their bonus gifts!)
You DON’T need to order every month… (until you become like the rest of us and become thoroughly addicted! hahaha!)
Close to 70% of people do re-order because they love the products so much!
It costs a one-off fee of $35 OR you can join with a kit (they start at $174) which waives the joining fee AND gives you massive savings on oils as well! This also takes the guesswork out of how to get started as you can choose a great all around kit to suit your budget and needs.
You’ll not only have access to membership prices all year long, but a support system and community of oil enthusiasts to help guide you on your journey using essential oils!
1. Open a new window in your browser and copy and paste this link and hit enter (this keeps this window open so you can keep follow instructions):
This page will come up.
2. Select the country you want to ship from (this will set up your account to automatically ship from that country so if you are in Aus, select Australia).
3. Select what currency and which warehouse you want to ship from. NOTE: if you select Australia but wanted to order something from the USA (they have some different products to us) then you can still place a USA order down the track!
4. Select your member type. Note: Select “Wellness Advocate” as you can access more benefits this way than selecting “Wholesale Customer”, even if at this stage you have no desire to build a biz or sign someone else up, you may down the track. You won’t receive any commissions if you select wholesale customer.
5. From there, select the product kit you want to sign up with (you can find out more here: Enrollment_Kits_AU). They start at $174 – I always recommend the HOME ESSENTIALS KIT ($330 AUD) or larger as the value of money is extremely high and you end up with one of the most practical kits for use straight away! You get a diffuser, 10 of the most useful and popular oils, 9 of which are in 15ml bottles (that’s thousands of drops of oil – remember, these are very potent and you only need a few drops per use). There literally 100’s of ways you can use this kit in your life!!
You can alternatively just pay the $35 membership fee (and order your desired products separately) or you can go to the point of building a business with doTERRA and then your best option is a larger kit such as the Diamond Kit (this may seem like a big investment upfront but you get soooooo many other benefits that give you a much bigger head start and equates to quite a small investment when it comes to starting a business).
