For The Love Of Oils & The Health Of Our Dogs And Ourselves
What Are Essential Oils?
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of Essential Oils. Prevalent in many cultures for well over a thousand years, these natural occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other plant parts. Scientifically speaking, an essential oil is a complex compound that is comprised of many, many chemical constituents and the very specific combination of these provide the plant with distinctive qualities and therapeutic benefits. Essential oils give plants their very distinctive smells, protect plants, play a role in plant pollination and provide beneficial properties.
In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants, and being beautifully fragrant to people, Essential Oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment and wellness practices. When Essential Oils are produced skillfully and carefully through distillation or cold pressing, the end product is a therapeutic-grade essential oil that harnesses an incredible potency and purity for maximum health and wellness benefits. By comparison, lower grade essential oils are more often extracted through a chemical process and have solvents or synthetics added to increase yield and profit which in exchange also can make them dangerous to pets. In fact 95% of essential oils on the market are somehow adulterated which is why it's so important to only work with therapeutic grade oils that you can trace back when it comes to animals.
How They Work
Essential Oils are active at the cellular level of our bodies. Actually better said, ESSENTIAL OILS affect the biochemistry of our cells. For example, in a recent study, ingested carvacrol decreased levels of the key immune system inflammatory particles called, cytokines. An immune system under stress can overproduce these small messenger proteins, and other inflammatory molecules, leading to adverse effects throughout the body. At a cellular level, an oil such as Oregano Essential oil may help assist the body’s normal immune system response to such triggers! How cool is that?!
Essential Oils have been used for thousands of years, but doTERRA has truly raised the bar in the Essential Oil world through their gentle and careful distillation process. Experienced growers from all around the world have patiently harvested our plants, at the perfect moment, and this creates the ideal composition and efficacy for our oils. While Lavender for examples can grow in our own backyard, the lavender that is grown in the south of France or Bulgaria has a totally different therapeutic benefit because it’s grown in an indigenous location where it grows best. When compared to another Essential Oil, you don't have to be an expert to immediately recognize the superior quality of doTERRA oils because of our standard for naturally safe, purely effective oils that are free of synthetics, fillers, solvents or artificial fragrance. Their Essential Oils are beautifully potent and purely natural. doTERRA Essential Oils are tested 13 different ways by a third party tester to ensure this purity and potency. If they don’t meet their rigorous standards of purity and potency, the batch is sold to another essential oil company. Once they arrive at the bottling facility they are tested again to ensure there was no contamination in transit. On the bottom of each essential oil bottle you will find a batch number and if you go to www.SourceToYou.com you can find the exact chemical makeup for that batch of essential oils. The company is completely transparent and when using the oils around my pets, this is really important to me so I know exactly what I am putting on or in, their bodies.
doTERRA also supports farmers with their co-impact sourcing programs where they work directly with farmers rather than brokers, to ensure fair wages for all farmers.
