A leading expert in the essential oil industry, Dr. Hill is head of the doTERRA Scientific Advisory Board.
Many of the oils from doTERRA are certified organic, others are ECOCERT, and some have no certification. The reason for this is that we source from so many developing countries. Certification requirements and availability vary from country to country. Some countries don't even have a certification offer.
When we say our oils are better than organic, it's because we have the ability to see even the tiniest component in every batch of oil. If there is anything in the essential oil that was not naturally produced in the plant without anything added, it will be rejected. That's what I love about our Certified Pure Tested Grade process. We work with the best analytical scientists in the world – nothing escapes them!
The value of an essential oil is derived from more than its individual chemistry. How that chemistry develops and to what extent it develops within the plant are other important considerations. In addition, manufacturing processes can sometimes enhance or reduce subtle yet critical chemical components necessary for optimal health benefit. In front of doTERRA it is not a single expert or process that determines best practices for quality, but rather a multifaceted cooperative effort that involves experts working together for the best possible results. This unique and distinctive approach enables doTERRA consistently able to provide unparalleled quality and benefit in our essential oils.
The chemical components of an essential oil are analogous to the macronutrients in food. Just as the fructose (sugar) composition of a banana provides instant energy and specific metabolic effects, an essential oil rich in Limonene can provide a powerful boost to your immune system. The chemical constituents in an oil determine its potential benefits, which metabolites it will produce, and best ways of application.
Chemists have identified more than 3.000 different molecules in essential oils to date. Each of these fusions of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms have their own unique properties. These compounds are categorized based on their chemical makeup, which refers to their function and physiological activity. Oils with a high terpene content (ending in “-ene”) have different properties than those high in hydroxyl alcohols (ending in “-ol”) or phenols or esters and are therefore suitable for different purposes. Familiarity with the chemical building blocks of essential oils allows any user to practice aromatherapy more safely and effectively.
A base oil is a lipid-based substance used to dilute essential oils.
The most popular base oils are pure vegetable oils, including grapeseed, avocado, and almond oils; however, most readily available base oils can go rancid quite quickly. I prefer fractionated coconut oil because it is stable at all temperatures and in all environments. It is also non-aromatic and therefore does not alter the aromatic properties of essential oils. Many people mistakenly believe that using base oils somehow reduces the effectiveness of the essential oil, when in fact there are many benefits associated with diluting oils. Dilution increases the surface area of absorption, improves absorption by dry skin and prevents sensitivities. It is never wrong to dilute, especially when using oils with a more potent chemistry. Determining when and how to dilute is a personal decision that should be based on preferences for use, oil chemistry and personal sensitivity.
For many, the value of essential oils is understood and validated through personal use. It may not be a matter of which oil to use but rather determining how and how much oil to use. The three primary uses include aromatic, topical (on the skin), and internal application, all of which have a documented benefit. Individual preference and experience will help you select the most appropriate application method to meet your personal needs. While the models of use may vary, I have found consistent application to be most effective. I recommend using essential oils in smaller amounts and more often throughout the day rather than sporadically in large amounts. Consistency of use will help ensure a lasting effect for maximum benefit.
There is a lot of information available about essential oils and their biological activity in the body. We understand more about the physiological mechanisms of essential oils than ever before. We know that essential oils are lipid soluble and therefore easily absorbed by skin tissue and mucous membranes. The safety and effectiveness of each method of application is well validated by scientific evidence. When determining how to apply an essential oil, it is important to use the oils in a context that is comfortable for the user. While the effects may be less pronounced due to certain application methods, each application method has powerful benefits, both locally and systemically.
It is a common misconception that when we use essential oils we can only affect the body or the mind but not both. In reality, when we affect a system of the body, the effects extend systemically. The limbic system, also known as the body's emotional control center, is critical when it comes to aroma because it is so easily influenced by our environment. What we taste, what we see, what we hear and especially what we smell influences this system. Part of the limbic system is the hypothalamus, which in addition to regulating the limbic system also has direct links to neurochemical stimulation throughout the body. So if we smell the Lavender inhaling, it will not only calm our mood, but will benefit the whole body. By far the fastest way to benefit from the effects of essential oils is to use them aromatically, but no matter how we apply the oils, the effects will be far reaching.
A major benefit of essential oils is that they are safe and effective at every stage of life, including pregnancy. Due to the mild, non-irritating nature of many essential oils, they can be used with confidence today. An important consideration during pregnancy is to support healthy full body function. Frankincense supports cellular function and improves overall health. * In my experience can Ginger, Peppermint, Lavender and citrus oils can help alleviate pregnancy-related issues such as nausea, emotional imbalance, and other common discomforts. * It is also important to remember that many women are particularly sensitive during pregnancy. Adjustment of amount, application methods or dilution ratios may be necessary to accommodate these increased sensitivities.
Just as we can classify essential oils based on differences in chemistry, we can categorize them based on their aroma. Three main aroma groupings are: calming/soothing oils, energizing oils and grounding/balancing oils. What's interesting, though, is that we can't separate the aroma from the chemistry. When looking at oils that are energizing, we observe the interplay between the aroma and the chemistry that allows these oils to affect the body systemically.
Diffusion of an energizing oil during the winter months can elevate mood and may also be stimulating to other body systems. Essential oils that fit into this category are those with different top notes such as Basil, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Eucalyptus and all citrus oils. One of my favorite combinations is Wild Orange mixed with Peppermint. These oils are most effectively used in a diffuser or by application to the skin.
An allergy is the result of the immune system mistakenly seeing a substance as harmful and making antibodies to fight it, resulting in various side effects. An allergic reaction to a plant is caused by a plant's proteinaceous materials (ie, the actual seed, leaf, or fruit). Pure essential oils do not contain these complex molecules, which are the main cause of allergies. While an allergic reaction is unlikely, this does not mean that essential oils can be used irresponsibly without risk. Understanding the proper use of an essential oil is always recommended, regardless of the circumstances. If you are concerned about sensitivities or interactions with other treatment plans, please consult your physician or health care provider for additional guidance.

That's what makes dōTERRA oils special
Not all oils are created equal. Many consumers are confused about what aromatherapy is and whether there is a difference between synthetic fragrances and real essential oils. Some people ask, "Does the purity of essential oils really matter?"
The answer is yes – the purity of essential oils matters. Using an essential oil or synthetic fragrance that contains impurities or synthetic fillers can put your health at risk. Without an acceptable industry-wide standard for essential oil quality, it can be difficult to discern which essential oils are pure and safe to use. Commercial companies sell essential oils that have not been tested for purity. And many therapeutic oil companies skip important steps in the testing process to save money or time.
We at AromaPro consciously choose to work with doTERRA essential oils to work. From the beginning, it has been the mission of doTERRA to share pure, high-quality essential oils with the world. dōTERRA created its own standard to certify that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in doTERRA essential oils that would reduce their effectiveness. This is the “CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade”, or “CPTG” standard. The CPTG process involves rigorous examination of each batch of oil, along with third-party testing, to ensure transparency and ensure that an essential oil is a pure essential oil, nothing else.
Another important fact why we doTERRA is their high standard in producing essential oils, which includes protecting nature and ensuring sustainability through their Co-Impact Sourcing initiative, which creates sustainable jobs and provides reliable income through timely payments at fair prices in underdeveloped areas across worldwide. In addition, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation to support development projects in the sourcing communities. The projects include schools, health clinics, improved infrastructure and clean water systems.
That's why we at AromaPro feel at home with doTERRA and we are sure that you will feel at home with us too.
