What is an Essential Oil

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautiful and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. 


But what exactly is a volatile aromatic compound? In short, these compounds are small organic molecules that tend to change quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. They are called volatile because they change state quickly. When you first open a bottle of essential oil, you instantly notice that the aroma is potent and you can smell it typically even from some distance. The physical and chemical properties of the volatile aromatic compounds that compose essential oils allow them to quickly move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for applications inclusion in aromatherapy – using these compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications. The type of volatile aromatic compounds present in an essential oil determines both the oil’s aroma and the benefits it offers. 




When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. 

Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG, Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol.

It seems that everyone and their mamas these days are selling essential oils. You can’t even walk into Walmart or Best Buy without being bombarded with essential oils. I get it. Essential oils are gaining popularity and, rightly so. 


Are you interested in exploring plant-based solutions?

Or maybe, you are looking for some alternative solutions for supporting your emotional and mental health. 

When I started using essential oils I was looking for emotional support.  I was introduced to doTERRA’s emotional aromatherapy.  I started to research and learned how essential oils affect the mind, body, and spirit.  Mints for energizing and calming, Herbs / Grasses, comforting and soothing as a simple example. 


I became a doTERRA wellness advocate, completed the NY Institute of Aromatherapy course, Foundations of Aromatherapy. I continue to learn, educate and support people in their search for using Essential oils for emotional, and physical support.
