Essential Oils

I like the fact that doTerra® offers single essential oils, essential oil blends, and essential oil supplements. Each category of oil has a well defined purpose and they can be used in combination with one another meaning there's no one-size-fits-all choice when it comes to using the oils.  It's very much a unique and tailored approach, and the choice of what oils, blends, or supplements you use is up to you. 

Another awesome thing to note about essential oils is that some of the oils you can take internally can also be used as a topical solution or diffuser blend as well.  You can't do that with an over the counter pain pill or vitamin supplement.  Think about that!

And it's also cool that you can combine single essential oils to create a custom essential oil blend to meet your particular circumstance or situation.  The oils and blends can be diluted to fit your age, size, or needs. They can also be strengthened to meet your needs as well.  Essential oils provide unique and customized solutions to meet your individual needs.  Here are a few of my favorites!
