I’ve been a plant-based healing advocate and coach for almost a decade.
During this time, several patterns started to emerge. I quickly discovered that no matter where your diet is on a clean-scale (and it needs to be good), I could distill food down to a 10 point list for most healing.
It was the underlying interferences in the mental, emotional and spiritual energetic layers of a person that have links to physical well-being, and that’s where lasting changes really occur.
This is where my inquiry began and I added essential oils to my green witch’s toolbox. I started paring and testing which oils go with what imbalances. Patterns began to emerge as did rapid healing in the energetic framework of the people I was working with.
Why I Work with DōTERRA Essential Oils
I chose doTERRA because I wanted pure therapeutic grade oils that are unadulterated.
doTERRA essential oils are gently and carefully distilled from plants harvested by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy.
Each batch of doTERRA essential oils is thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG® (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®) quality protocol. This is done by an outside testing lab.
While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on generations 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 the 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.
