3 Tips for Learning about Essential Oils

What is the best way to learn about essential oils, their many benefits, and uses?

Here are three tips to help you learn:

  1. Start with the Introductory Kit. The audio CD and booklet contain valuable information on essential oils, extraction methods, and what makes dōTERRA's CPTG essential oils uniquely superior to other essential oils on the market. The kit also includes three of our most popular oils--lavender, lemon, and peppermint.

  2. Attend Meetings. Check out the Events Calendar and find a meeting near you. At these meetings you will learn from the experts, meet new friends, and network like never before! Tuesday's meeting at Noah's had close to 300 attendees!

Lavender 101

If you're new to the concept of self-care, you may be wondering, "Where do I begin?"

A great place to start is by making sure you're getting enough sleep. Wikipedia reports that sleep deprivation may lead to depression, weight gain or loss, irritability, and other health problems.

Lavender essential oil is perfect for helping you get a peaceful night's sleep. Lavender is well documented as a stress reducer and sleep inducer. Its pleasant and calming aroma helps your body and mind relax. dōTERRA's CPTG lavender essential oil is 100% pure and natural, so it's safe and simple to use.
  1. Enjoy an aromatic bath with lavender essential oil. Add 6-12 drops of lavender oil and 1/2 cup bath salts to hot water in a tub. The salts will relax the muscles and the oil will soothe and nourish your skin.

  2. Diffuse lavender in your bedroom and play soft music to unwind before bedtime. Breathing the aroma will help everyone in your home relax and is a calming influence in any environment.

  3. Apply a drop or two of lavender essential oil on the back of the neck or massage on the bottom of the feet.

Be good to yourself with lavender essential oil. You'll sleep better and wake up refreshed and ready to enjoy a new day!

Take Time for Self-Care in 2009

This past weekend I was determined to take some time to slow down and practice self-care, so I enjoyed a pedicure with my favorite essential oils. Spa treatments, whether at home or at a spa, are a great way to pamper yourself and transport you to a state of bliss. But they're also a great way to improve your health and well-being.

Many of us could enjoy better health by reducing stress. Stress can wreak havoc on our bodies in the form of weight gain, emotional overload, and lack of sleep. In this month's issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, Oprah revealed how stress has affected her health:

"What I've learned this year is that my weight issue isn't about eating less or working out harder, or even about a malfunctioning thyroid. It's about my life being out of balance, with too much work and not enough play, not enough time to calm down. I let the well run dry.

In 2009, dare I, dare all of us give ourselves all the love and care we need to be healthy, to be well, and to be whole? I know for sure that for each moment of this brand new year, I'm gonna try."

So this year, be sure to surround yourself with the aromas of essentials oils, and take time for self-care with pampering treatments using dōTERRA's certified pure therapeutic-grade essential oils. Your body, and mind, will thank you for it!
