What are Essential Oils?

Natural, highly concentrated, volatile aromatic compounds found in the roots, bark, seeds, flowers or other areas of a plant. Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions and benefits.

Volatile aromatic compounds are tiny, organic molecules that quickly transform from their liquid or solid state into a gas when they reach room temperature. Each volatile compound contains one or two hundred different carbon- and hydrogen-based compounds called terpenes or hydrocarbons. When these compounds are extracted from the plant and distilled for purity, they are 50-70% stronger. Oils work with the body to address issues and root causes on a cellular level.


Essential oils can cross cell membranes and oxygenate the cell that make them more effective than modern approaches to health problems. Because of the hundreds of different compounds in the oils, every essential oil varies in its natural makeup, so aromas and benefits are also unique. Depending on the attribute(s)of the oil each attribute can be helpful to the body in its own way. 

For example, Lavender oil includes elements that make it effective for soothing skin irritations, and promoting a restful environment for sleep. 

Meanwhile, when taken internally, Frankincense oil supports immune, nervous, and digestive systems, and aids in healthy cellular function. 


Essential oils can be used aromatically by putting a drop in your hands, rubbing them together and inhaling or using a diffuser. Aromatics are commonly used when we want to help clean and purify the air, improve respiratory function or want to elevate our moods.

Essential oils can be used topically when trying to get the oils quickly into the bloodstream or for direct application over areas of concern. Some of the best places on the body to apply essential oils are the bottoms of the feet, spine, back of neck, and pulse points.
When using oils topically, use a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil, almond, jojoba, etc. The carrier oil helps to minimize skin sensitivity to certain oils and helps keep the essential oil on the skin longer instead of flashing off.

There are some essential oils that can be used internally. Make sure that the bottle has a “Supplement Facts” box on the label before ingesting. Some methods of internal use are in a glass of water, directly under the tongue, or in a veggie capsule. Using oils this way is great for those times you are dealing with digestive issues or if you want to support your immune system and even help the body’s own cleansing and detoxifying processes.

why doterra

Many essential oils on the market are heavily contaminated or adulterated with synthetic chemicals. If you’re buying essential oils, it means you want something completely natural and safe. Make sure that you don’t inadvertently buy something you think is natural but turns out to be synthetic.

When you want essential oils that are safe and effective, the most important thing to look for is purity. Pure essential oils allow you to reap the full benefits that nature has to offer. They can support you, empower you, and revive you. And when using only the purest essential oils, you can be confident that they are safe to use with your family.

Remember, you usually get what you pay for, and essential oils are no different.

Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade® quality protocol. This means that every batch of doTERRA essential oils goes through a rigorous testing process—well beyond what would be considered “good enough.” After that, each oil is sent to an independent third party for further testing and validation.

It’s more than just testing that sets doTERRA essential oils apart. doTERRA works diligently to make a difference. The Co-Impact Sourcing model makes it a top priority to protect the environment during the production process and provide fair treatment of all harvesters and growers.
