doTERRA Essential Oils and How to Buy Them
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, 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.
Over 3,000 varieties of volatile aromatic compounds have been identified to date. The nature of an essential oil varies from plant to plant, within botanical families, and from species to species. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits.
Even with pure essential oils the composition of the oil can vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather, making every step of the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil product.
Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in complex essential oil blends depending on user experience and desired benefit.
So why pick doTERRA?
When purchasing essential oils, it is recommended you obtain them from a trusted source that has strict quality and testing standards. doTERRA essential oils are reliable, safe, have strict quality testing and obtain the ingredients from all over the world with ethical methods.
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. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.
While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques.
The most common method of extracting essential oils is a low-heat steam distillation process. In this process, pressurized steam is circulated through plant material. The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected. To ensure the highest quality oil extract with the correct chemical composition, the temperature and pressure must be closely monitored. Too little heat or pressure and the oil will not release; too much, and the oil’s composition and potency will be affected.

Direct Retail Options:
Direct Retail purchase options are the most expensive way to purchase the essential oils for yourself, as you are not able to receive any wholesale discounts. It is however a great way to access your essential oils without having to sign up to anything. It is also beneficial for a casual purchaser who just wants an oil every now and then, and doesn’t want the hassle of anything other than purchasing their oils.

At Fithealth Nutrition, we are transparent in our options, and simply want to provide you with the information so you can make an informed choice as to your best option.

You do not have to do minimum monthly orders or have a certain annual spend on oils within a year. You simply pay your annual membership fee which grants you access to your wholesale account. You can order weekly, monthly, or once a year- whatever you decide suits your essential oil purchase requirements.

The doTERRA Kits are a fantastic way to get started. It is the most economical way to introduce yourself to the oils as you get a variety of oils to suit your needs and your budget.

However, if you do decide that you love the oils and you are sharing them with friends and family, you might want to benefit from the Loyalty Rewards Programme (known as an LRP). An LRP means you place an order monthly, but you earn ‘loyalty’ points on the oils and you can be eligible for receiving a free product of the month.
