What are Essential Oils?
What are essential oils? Inside many plants—hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, fruit, or bark—are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These naturally occurring compounds are essential oils. They are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home.
Essential oil benefits vary from plant to plant, within botanical families, and even from species to species. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make its aroma unique and give it specific benefits. Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and can even assist it with pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils offer a myriad of uses and benefits for your home and family.
WHAT THEY DO
How Do Essential Oils Work?
When you open a bottle of naturally sourced, nonsynthetic essential oil, your senses are instantly filled with its potent aroma, even from a distance. What your nose detects are the naturally occurring elements of the essential oil. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for inclusion in aromatherapy—promoting wellness by using aromatic compounds—and in other applications.
Every essential oil varies in its biological makeup, so their aromas and benefits are also unique. Essential oils experience composition variance depending on numerous factors relating to the conditions of its source plant. The geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, the weather, and even time of day or season of harvest make the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil.

Some essential oil aromas are soothing or grounding, while others are energizing, warming, and invigorating—while all essential oils have unique differences, all doTERRA essential oils are naturally sourced.
