Welcome! Have you ever wanted to learn more about oils? Let’s start now! Here is an Essential Oils 101 class that I love to do on Facebook or even one that I do as public events. Let’s get started!
Maybe you have heard about Essential Oils and wondered what all the fuss was about, maybe you have started to use them in your home already…but whatever the reason that you decided to learn more, I am glad you are here! Let’s oil on!
Hey there and welcome!! I’m Bonnie, the founder of Essential Oils for Moms! :) I just want to quickly share my story! Many of you know that I have been silently been suffering from Lyme Disease for several years now. I have always been into health and wellness and believe that I would be far worse off physically and mentally if I wasn’t.
My symptoms included extreme fatigue ALL THE TIME, brain fog, horrible PSM, cold & flu symptoms every 2 weeks, achy joints in my hands, weight gain, depression, etc. Basically, I felt sick all the time and this affected me as a wife, mother, and person. I knew something was wrong and was thankful for a diagnosis.
After I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease last December, I went looking for others was to find relief and feel normal again.
That’s when I found essential oils. At first, I thought oils were a fad, or just something to add a pretty smell too.
I began researching and read about half the internet before I finally decided to try them. I found oils that were immune building and that helped with Lyme Disease.
After I started my new oil routine, I started feeling better! My fog was lifted and my energy started coming back. My cycles started to normal out and my cold and flu symptoms were gone. I honestly, hadn’t felt this good in years!!!
I truly felt like this was a gift from God and then I learned that doTERRA actually means “Gift of the Earth”.
After praying, (and more research,) I decided to make a life shift and share oils with everyone I know!
These oils have changed my life and now I can share this gift with others!!
What are Essential Oils?
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 beautifully and powerfully fragrant.
Essential Oils give plants their distinctive smells, protect plants, and play a role in plant pollination.
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 healthcare practices.
?So Essential Oils:
?Are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds;
?Are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants
?Protect plants against environmental threats and provide beneficial properties
?Are highly concentrated when distilled for purity, potency, and efficacy
?Have been used historically for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
QUESTION – WHAT TYPE OF SCENT ARE YOU OFTEN DRAWN TO: CITRUS, GRASSES, FLORALS, SPICES, MINTS, OR TREES?

HOW DO I USE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are great for EVERYDAY USE. You can experience the many benefits of Essential Oils by using them to support overall health.
Here are the three ways to use them:
• Essential oils, when diffused or inhaled, can be very stimulating, calming, or soothing. Diffusing Essential Oils can also cleanse and purify the air.
?Essential oils can be safely applied for massage or topical therapy.
?Their chemical structure enables them to pass through skin for an immediate systemic response.
✨THIRTY SECONDS to get into your bloodstream ✨THIRTY MINUTES to get through your entire body.
✨Certain Essential Oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.
❔QUESTION – WHICH WAY WOULD YOU USE ESSENTIAL OILS THE MOST?
?One of the most well-studied areas of aroma research is the effect of smell on EMOTIONS and MOOD.
?For example, there is convincing evidence demonstrating that simply inhaling the AROMA of an ESSENTIAL OIL is effective for calming nervous or anxious feelings in a variety of settings.
?The SMELL receptors located on the upper surface of the nasal cavity make direct links with the limbic system of the brain, an area that governs the body’s EMOTIONAL responses.
?This close connection between AROMA and EMOTION becomes obvious in our everyday life as certain odors trigger MEMORIES or specific FEELINGS. Some AROMAS directly impact MOOD (for example calming, balancing, or invigorating), while others trigger memories of a specific experience, often one tied to a strong EMOTION.
?Intriguing new research has also helped us recognize that the benefits of AROMA extend far beyond just EMOTIONAL regulation.
?In addition to influencing the limbic region of the BRAIN, olfactory centers are also intricately linked with the hypothalamus, an area of the BRAIN more familiarly nicknamed the “visceral control center” because it controls physiologic functions throughout the body. The hypothalamus exerts its POWERFUL influence by interacting directly with the pituitary gland, or “master gland,” a small gland located in the BRAIN.
?The pituitary gland secretes hormones involved in the regulation of BLOOD PRESSURE, HUNGER and THIRST signals, THYROID function, SLEEP cycles, production of sexual HORMONES, and MEMORY, among other things.
?Because of the direct link of the olfactory system to this area of the brain, AROMA is capable of interacting directly with the hypothalamus, influencing neurochemistry throughout the body, and, in turn, potentiating POWERFUL health outcomes.
?There are many acceptable ways to use essential oils for their AROMATIC properties. One method is to DIFFUSE the oil into the air.
Not only does diffusion make the oil accessible to the body, but research indicates that there are also AIR PURIFICATION benefits when diffusing oils.
?When diffusing oils, use of cold air or hydro diffusion is best because burning or heating essential oils can ALTER their delicate chemistry. If a diffuser is not available, simply DROPPING essential oils into the palm of the hand and then cupping around the nose and breathing deeply is a CONVENIENT METHOD for using essential oils at ANY time, in ANY situation.
