What were almost unknown by the general population just 5-7 years ago are now seen on the shelves of health food stores and large retailers alike. Essential oils have “gone mainstream” and have definitely gained popularity as well as a loyal following in the past few years. However, those who get their oils at Walmart or on Amazon miss out on many of the benefits we get with essential oils from dōTERRA, and I’m not just referring to the purity and potency of the essential oils that brings the health-changing benefits and results we desire. I’m talking about the education and support that comes through working directly with a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate like my wife Tiffany.
When you purchase an essential oil off the shelf at Walmart, who teaches you the best ways to use that oil? When and when not to use it? And how to get the best results with it? No one does. If you have a question about which oils need to be used with a carrier, can you take it back to the store and ask the clerk who rang up the sale? Nope. You are on your own. And chances are if you don’t understand how to use the essential oils you bought on Amazon, you won’t use them. Of course, in my opinion, this is probably a good thing because it has been documented that many of the essential oils that are retailed online or in big chain stores are mostly synthetic fragrance oils and are not very therapeutic. Some of these products may actually be harmful. Check the label…chances are it says “not for internal use” right on the bottle. Why would it say that? Typically, it is because those bottles are filled with synthetic fragrances and other chemicals that could be toxic. Buyer beware. Best to just avoid them.
What’s a person to do? Who do you trust? After looking around and doing some of our own research, we’ve chosen to use doTERRA’s essential oils in our family. dōTERRA is the largest purveyor of essential oils in the world. Their mission is to “provide only the highest quality and purest essential oils so that families could know with surety that they were using only the best to promote health and wellness for their loved ones.” My wife and I and our family have experienced a multiplicity of benefits since we started using doTERRA’s essential oils and have friends across the globe with the same experience. We have built an amazing supportive community of like-minded families who support each other, share tips and helpful advice with each other every day.
