There’s got to be a better way.

If you have, you’re in the right place because I believe the exact same.

There is a better way to support your health and care for your body – and nature has always held the answers we’ve been looking for.

Essential oils entered my life in 2015 when I was ready to begin taking radical responsibility for the way I took care of myself – mentally, emotionally, and physically.

When we know better, we do better.

After spending many years studying holistic nutrition and natural medicine, I could no longer ignore all of the toxic household cleaners I was repeatedly bringing into my home. I knew better and it was time I started doing better. This is when I began using essential oils because I knew they would be the vehicle that would support me in taking better care of myself.


Essential oils are more than pretty smells

It’s no secret that essential oils smell amazing and are the perfect, safe alternative to candles and perfumes, but essential oils also have the ability to:

  • Protect and strengthen the immune system
  • Support digestive health
  • Encourage healthy inflammatory responses
  • Assist in natural detoxification and liver health
  • Balance hormones
  • Promote relaxation and deepen sleep
  • Improve skin, hair, and nail health
  • Balance and stabilize mood and emotions
  • Strengthen spiritual connection
  • Add flavour, antioxidants, and health benefits to cooking

This is just a short list of ways you can benefit from using essential oils. Although they are referred to as “alternative medicine”, they have been used for centuries and are truly our original medicine.





Aromatically: When inhaled, essential oils are quickly absorbed and connect with one of the most powerful areas of the brain: the limbic system. This is how our mood, emotions, and mental health can be almost immediately impacted through simple inhalation of an essential oil.  

Topically: Applying your essential oils topically is an effective way to target specific areas of the body, such as localized joint and muscle pain, but also digestive health, and head tension. Combining your essential oil with a carrier oil is a safe and effective way to experience the benefits of your essential oils through topical application.

Internally: Certain essential oils can be taken internally as a dietary supplement or used in recipes in place of dried herbs and spices. Not all essential oils are created equally, so it is important to use 100% pure essential oils before ever using them internally. 

Quality Matters: Why doTERRA

There’s a reason why doTERRA is the largest essential oil and wellness company in the world with over 8 million customers – their commitment to purity, sustainable sourcing model, philanthropic work, and leadership in healthcare is unlike any other company. Click through to learn more about each one of these pillars:

There is no governing body overseeing the essential oil industry, which is why it is so extremely necessary to do your research to ensure the essential oils you are using are 100% pure. Over 80% of essential oils available on the market today have been adulterated, which means they have been cut with synthetic fillers and contain harmful ingredients. doTERRA’s mission is to provide their customers with the highest quality, highest purity, and most sustainably sourced essential oils in the world, which is why they created the Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) stamp of quality.

Each bottle of doTERRA essential oil meets this purity requirement by going through rigorous examination of every batch of oil, along with third-party testing to guarantee transparency. The testing of each batch of essential oil is available to the public on sourcetoyou.com. For these reasons, hospitals and universities choose to partner with doTERRA when doing specific studies on essential oils for publication.

Where and how your oils are sourced matters. doTERRA sources their oils globally, from the locations in which the plants are indigenous to. By doing this, the essential oil have the correct chemical makeup to deliver therapeutic results. As a nutritionist, I can’t help but compare this to food. When grown in the correct location, the nutritional value of our food will be superior to the food grown in a location and climate that is not ideal. The same goes for essential oils. When sourced properly, the quality will be superior.

Additionally, doTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production. Through doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing model, we develop long-term partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas.

They are dedicated to empowering individuals and changing lives and they do this through their Healing Hands Foundation, which is doTERRA’s non-profit foundation that empowers communities by building homes, schools, hospitals, medical clinics, supplying clean water projects, and supporting many other projects, such as anti-human trafficking.
