#31 drops of oil – Oct 8
It’s really hard to hurt yourself with essential oils if you follow some basic guidelines. Most oils are very safe and gentle to use – for the whole family – with few, if any, side effects.
My #1 recommendation is, especially at first when you’re getting to know your oils – dilute when using topically! I’ve found that the skin on my neck is sensitive – probably due to age and sun damage. But everyone is different … still a good, safe rule to remember is LESS IS MORE!
Safety also brings up these three points:
1 -- Purity and potency is vital to the effectiveness and safety of the oils you use. Yes, there is a difference. I’ve known aromatherapists and massage therapists who used other brands and their clients experienced headaches or skin sensitivity (because the oils they were using were diluted with synthetics) or didn’t achieve the wellness goals they were seeking until they switched to doTERRA. Our oils are tested many times over for both purity and chemical potency – for specific chemical markers to be in a specific therapeutic range.
2 – The importance of education and support. Using essential oils involves a learning curve. Grabbing an oil off a shelf or the internet is not a wise use of your money and efforts. If you are depending on essential oils for their therapeutic value, you need a little training and support from someone like me that takes this very seriously.
3 – Trust. Essential Oils are unregulated. There is no definition of what “pure” or “natural” or even “therapeutic” means. I trust doTERRA because every liter of oil is tested by outside labs. If it doesn’t meet their standards of purity and quality of chemical constituents, it is thrown out. This means our oils are the ONLY oils I’d take internally. Period.

Other uses: place a couple of drops of each on a cotton ball and place it in front of a vent in the car for morning carpool or for a long trip; also great for focus for afternoon studies and homework.
Place a drop or two of each in the palm of your hand and cup over nose -- inhale deeply several times.
