Peace begins with yourself
Peace begins with oneself and at one's own doorstep. To have harmony and balance in your personal life is important. When we have conflicts or problems with our family members, neighbors or friends, it can cause us stress and negative emotions. This can have a knock-on effect on other aspects of our lives, such as work or study. With essential oils, you can bring yourself into a calmer emotional state within seconds. The Blue Lotus Touch roll-on from doTERRA is perfect for this purpose.
The Blue Lotus or blue water lily is a plant with a rich history in various cultures around the world. From the ancient Egyptians to the indigenous people of Central and South America, the blue lotus was traditionally used for its soothing, spiritual and medicinal properties. Today, the use of the blue lotus is still popular, and doTERRA Blue Lotus essential oil is a great example.
Blue Lotus Touch oil from doTERRA is grown and distilled in Asia, where the climate and soil are perfect for the growth of this plant. The rare blossoms, are collected early in the morning by local families, when the delicate petals are fully open to the sun. The flowers are picked by hand and then placed in large tanks of water to ferment. This fermentation creates the characteristic odor and helps concentrate the active ingredients in the plant. After fermentation, the flowers are distilled to obtain the essential oil.
