Today I am sharing a video that gives some background information on how I was introduced to DoTerra essential oils and why I continue to use them today. You can watch the video below (don’t forget to subscribe to the channel!)
I definitely feel that modern medicine has a place in our lives as I know I would not likely be here today without it. However, I feel very drawn to a slower, simpler and more natural life in all aspects for my family. I am looking forward to making the essential oils a larger part of our everyday lives. DoTerra’s personal care products as well some household ones are on my list to try out int he near future.
One question I have been asked quite a bit is why I choose to use DoTerra products over essential oils from other companies. My answer to that is two-fold. First of all, I like how the plants which they use are grown around the world where they would naturally grow. It makes a lot of sense to me that the growing conditions, such as soil composition and climate, will affect the plant and the compounds found in it. if a plant has naturally grown and thrived in one particular area of the world it seems like common sense that if you try to replicate that in another part of the world you may come close but it will not be 100% the same. I also like how this growing method supports local growers and economies.
Secondly, I love the supportive system which DoTerra offers. There is a sense of community and lots of continual education on the oils and their usages as well as their other products. The company is also big on research which a huge bonus.
