What are Essential Oils?
Essential Oils are Pure extracts from plants.
They are 50 – 70x more powerful than herbs and are highly concentrated.
For example; 1 drop of Peppermint essential oil is equivilant to 28 cups of peppermint tea.
They are natural aromatic compounds that come from flowers, stems, leaves, bark, seeds, and many other parts of the plant.
They are steam-distilled or cold pressed from the plants and into the bottles which means they are 100% plant derived with no artificial fillers or additives.
Quality is everything and so important to get positive results using essential oils, so i say this confidently and you’ll see me say it a million times; i will only refer to doTERRA oils for purity.
Essential oils are a great natural alternative to synthetic remedies as they are safe, effective, natural and affordable.
They work quickly;
When inhaling essential oils, the molecules reach the brain within 22 seconds.
When applying them topically, before the end of 2 minutes, they can be found in the blood stream.
At the close of 20 minutes, E V E R Y cell in the body will be effected in a positive way.
Essential Oils are not just an investment, but are a lifestyle change.
For example; They can be used for low tox cleaning by replacing the harmful chemicals that are found in supermarket cleaners.
They can be used to support the body with many health issues, and support healthy cellular function aswell as promoting overall wellness.
You can also use essential oils to makeover your bathroom cabinet in the likes of all your skin care, hand soaps, body washes, shampoo + conditioner, AND there are SO MANY DIY recipes that are essential oil infused to detoxify your home.
Are They Safe For Children?
A big fat yes, however, like anything there are safety guidelines for using essential oils and its important to note that you would use essential oils differently on a child than you would on an adult.
Number one rule — DILUTE!
and then the close second — “Less is more”.
When used correctly, the benefits are incredible and you will fall in love with them and their abilities.
The easiest way to dilute the oils is by making up a roller and filling the rest up with Fractionated Coconut Oil – easy to carry in your baby bag, hand bag, or in your purse for convenient everyday use.
Essential Oils are gentle, effective, clean and natural — plus they give you and your baby the most gorgeous scent all day long.

*NOTE: I refer to, and always will, to doTERRA essential oils only, as their purity standards are high and respectable.
