Essential Oils (3)

We personally have tried other essential oils and decided that for us doTERRA was the product to use.  We also like the fact that they do not say anything about their “competition” unlike what some other companies do.

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.

 

Steam Distillation

Steam distillation is the most common way to extract aromatic compounds (essential oil) from a plant. During the steam distillation process, steam passes through the plant material. The combination of heated steam and gentle pressure causes the essential oil to be released from microscopic protective sacs. As the vapor mixture flows through a condenser and cools, it yields a layer of oil and a layer of water. The essential oil rises to the top and is separated from the hydrosol (floral water) and collected.

Some have asked about the difference between first distillations in comparison to complete distillations. The temperature for steam distilling is usually between 140–212 degrees Fahrenheit. Since different plants require different pressures, times, and temperatures, using this particular distillation method makes it possible to adjust the temperature based on the plant type, making it a very effective and precise way to obtain the purest compounds.

 

Expression

Unlike steam distillation, expression, sometimes referred to as “cold pressed,” does not involve heat. In this process, oil is extracted from the product under mechanical pressure. doTERRA uses expression to extract all of its citrus oils, such as Wild Orange, Lemon, Lime, Bergamot, and Grapefruit, from the rind.

Proper distillation requires a consideration for the uniqueness of pressure, temperature, time, and harvesting practices, each of which may be as diverse as the plants themselves. A poor distillation process can alter or destroy the necessary aromatic compounds that comprise the essential oil, leaving a substance far different from the intended goal and something that would not be used to support health and wellness. For this reason, the best distillation artisans dedicate their efforts and work to only a few select plants. This focused effort develops proper knowledge and experience, helping ensure congruency between the oil chemistry of the plant and its distilled form.

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.

But what exactly is a volatile aromatic compound? In short, these compounds are small organic molecules that tend to change quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. They are called volatile because they change state quickly. When you first open a bottle of essential oil, you instantly notice that the aroma is potent and you can smell it typically even from some distance. The physical and chemical properties of the volatile aromatic compounds that compose essential oils allow them to quickly move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for applications inclusion in aromatherapy – using these compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications. The type of volatile aromatic compounds present in an essential oil determines both the oil’s aroma and the benefits it offers.

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. Want to learn how to use essential oils?

Traditionally, certain essential oil application methods have been preferred or used exclusively. However, as the research surrounding essential oils continues to develop, a greater understanding of application methods is now understood. All application methods are safe when used appropriately, including aromatic, topical, and internal methods. One or multiple application methods can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:

Aromatic

The sense of smell is a tool that can elicit powerful physiologic, mental, and emotional responses. Essential oils are quickly absorbed by the smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system by way of the olfactory nerve. The limbic system is part of the brain that supports a variety of functions including smell, emotions, behavior, and memory. For this reason, essential oils have an especially powerful effect via aromatic application.

Some essential oils induce uplifting or invigorating effects, while others are more calming. Diffusion is one of the simplest methods for using essential oils aromatically. Diffusers that use cold air or water are ideal. However, using essential oils aromatically does not require any special diffusing devices.

You can achieve the same health benefits by simply placing a few drops of essential oil in the palm of your hand that is then cupped around the nose as you breathe deeply.

Additional aromatic uses For Essential Oils Include:

  • Apply oil to a cotton ball and place in the air vents of your vehicle
  • Mix oils in a spray bottle with water and mist over furniture, carpet, or linens
  • Add oil to a batch of laundry or to dryer sheets
  • Use in household surface cleaners

Topical

Topical application is a very effective method for applying essential oils. Because essential oils have low molecular weights and are lipid soluble, they easily penetrate the skin. Once absorbed, they stay in the applied area for a localized benefit.

Although essential oils are readily absorbed, there are many ways to increase absorption. Using a light massage will increase the blood flow to the area of application, in turn improving distribution throughout the body. Use of a carrier oil can also increase absorption, especially in skin that is dry or flaky as it helps moisturize the skin and slow evaporation of the oil.

To decrease the likelihood of developing a skin sensitivity, especially on young or sensitive skin, it is advisable to use a carrier oil (such as Fractionated Coconut Oil) to dilute more potent oils and when trying an oil for the first time. The recommend dilution ratio is typically one drop of essential oil to three drops of carrier oil.

It’s always advisable to use several small doses throughout the day rather than a single large dose. Start with the lowest possible dose (1–2 drops). A topical dose can be repeated every 4–6 hours as needed. Because every individual is unique, the dose will vary for each individual based on size, age, and overall health status.

Beneficial Areas You Can Apply Essential Oils

  • Neck
  • Forehead and temples
  • Chest and abdomen
  • Arms, legs, bottom of feet

Other Effective Methods of Topical Application 

  • Add a few drops of oil to a warm bath
  • Make a hot or cold compress by soaking a towel or cloth in water, adding essential oils, and then applying to the desired area
  • Add oil to a lotion or moisturizer and then apply to skin

Sensitive Areas to be Avoided:

  • Some facial areas, such as the skin around the eyes
  • Eyes and inner ears
  • Broken, damaged, or otherwise injured skin

Internal

Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. When you sprinkle cinnamon on your oatmeal, sip a mug of peppermint tea, or add fresh basil leaves to your spaghetti, you are actually consuming some volatile aromatic essential oil compounds.

Essential oil contributes many health benefits as well as flavoring and aroma properties to foods. When in their concentrated form, essential oils can be used as dietary supplements for more targeted and potent health benefits. Internal use is a very safe and effective method of application because of the sophisticated physiologic processes of our bodies.

When ingested, essential oils directly enter the blood stream via the gastrointestinal tract, where they are transported throughout the rest of the body. Essential oils are lipid soluble so they are readily transported to all organs of the body, including the brain. Then, like all things we consume, essential oils are metabolized by the liver and other organs and are then excreted.

The composition of essential oils is highly complex. Each constituent possesses a unique set of biochemical properties that react with cells and organs in different ways. Although these mechanisms of action are not completely understood, the positive end results have been demonstrated. However, the body is only equipped to handle appropriate doses of essential oils.

Proper dosing according to labeling recommendations and other professional guidelines should be strictly followed to avoid toxicity.

Effective Methods of Internal Application

  • Use oils in recipes for cooking or baking to replace fresh or dried herbs and spices
  • Remember that essential oils are much more potent than dried or fresh herbs and spices, so start with a very small amount
  • For more potent oils, it may be better to administer them by toothpicks (dip the end of a clean toothpick into the oil and then add to the food) rather than drops
  • Add essential oils to water, smoothies, milk, tea, or other drinks
  • Take essential oils internally in a veggie capsule or add to a small amount of applesauce or yogurt

HEMP (17)

The FDA does not allow us to make any claims about what Full Spectrum Hemp Oil can do or may do for you.  But, we CAN pass along that we have numerous customers using our products regularly for things such as:  Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia, PTSD, Cancer, Epilepsy, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Arthritis, Insomnia, Anxiety, Migraines and so much more.  While CBD doesn’t help everyone with their condition, we have many people who return regularly.  The only way you’ll know if it will help you is to try it.  (If you need further advice, your doctor or medical practitioner might be able to help.)

Unfortunately, there is no definitive scientific answer to this.  Truly it requires some trial and error to get the right amount for you and your condition.  But, with patience and practice, you should be able to get to that “happy point” in just a few days of working with it.
The approach we recommend is to begin taking a particular amount, twice a day for the first 7 days to build it up in your system and so you can truly see what its doing.  After this amount of time, increase or decrease the amount you’re taking based on the results you’re seeing.

When taking enough CBD, it generally only takes about 20-30 minutes for it become effective.  Most people when first starting out, do not know what to expect and often overlook that CBD is beginning to help their condition.  Since there is no “high” to report, most people don’t know that the CBD is doing anything.  Only after a while do they realize that any pain they may have had is no longer there or not as intense.  The “feeling” of CBD is so subtle that usually all that is able to be identified is a subtle calming.  After several uses, many people have reported that they now notice it “taking the edge” off minutes after administering.  But, for most newcomers, they expect a huge change and its just not like that, unless its being used for pain management.  A gentle release of the pain is usually fairly noticeable when taking CBD in proper amounts.

Everyone is different in how their body responds to Hemp Oil.  So, there is no single answer to this question.  What we CAN say is that most of our customers prefer to start with Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Drops, then, branching out from there.  The drops are typically the easiest to determine dosing.  And, the drops, when flavored tend to taste good.  One has to want to vape in order to try the vape products.  And, the extract doesn’t typically taste very good and is difficult to measure a particular dose.

What works best for YOU, is truly a personal thing.  Some people respond well to drops, but not at all to vaping CBD.  Some people respond very well to vaping, but see little results when ingesting it through drops.  Its all a trial and error thing that you simply have to test for yourself to find that “single best way”.

​This is an excellent question.  First, let’s talk about the posted Serving Size:  The FDA makes us treat these products as a food product.  And, as such, we HAVE TO post some arbitrary Serving Size on the product.  But, it is just that, ARBITRARY.  Now, as for how many drops, this requires only simple math.  The key point you need to consider is that our 1 ounce bottles have approximately 500 drops in each bottle.

Our 500mg 1oz bottle:  500mg divided by 500 drops equals 1mg per drop.  So, for example, if you need say 10mg of CBD, then, you would take 10 drops.

When using the drops, the best way to take them is sublingually.  And, the easiest way to do this is by setting a spoon on a counter and dripping the desired number of drops into the spoon.  Then, by putting the spoon into your mouth, put the liquid under your tongue for about 90 seconds, then swallow.   When taking in drinks/foods, we recommend taking approximately twice as much as if you’re taking it sublingually.

We are not doctors and we are not knowledgeable about your particular health condition, so you have to get medical advice from your practitioner.  However, what we can say is that typically, its virtually impossible to take too much Full Spectrum Hemp Oil .  We use the following analogy:  Can you eat too much spinach?  Well, the answer is yes.  You can.  But, you’d have to eat such an unimaginable amount that its not realistic to think you could truly eat too much spinach.  The same holds true for Full Spectrum Hemp Oil .  Its not realistic to think you could take too much, but of course, at some level it would be possible.  (Again, please consult your physician regarding your specific situation)

Simply put, Industrial Hemp is virtually all the hemp grown in the world today.  Non-Industrial hemp would be marijuana.  Because of all the cross breeding, there is little delineation between what is a hemp plant and what is a marijuana plant.  Industrial hemp is the cannabis plant that is exceptionally low in THC. ​

Let’s first point out that taste is highly subjective.  So, what tastes good to one, may not taste good to another.  Secondly, let’s point out that people don’t typically take CBD Hemp products because they’re hungry and they want some good tasting food.  They’re taking it for some degree of well-being and most people who have had their life changed by CBD Hemp Oil couldn’t care less how it tastes.
​Now, on to the flavor.  At the base of the product is a plant extract from hemp.  And, just like most herbal extracts and bitters, this extract doesn’t taste great, generally speaking. However, we are proud to tell you that we also offer organic essential oil flavors that are 100% natural and do not dilute our product. The choice is yours, we love all of them equally.
