Emotional Benefits of Aromatherapy

No matter our age, lifestyle, or geographic location, one thing that all humans have in common is that we all experience emotions, both positive and negative every day. Emotions are an inescapable part of being a human, and they have a serious impact on our happiness and well-being.

Aromatherapy is part of the key to influencing our emotions for the better. Find out how in our eBook, Emotional Benefits of Aromatherapy.


Essential Oil Origins

Ever wondered where essential oils come from? Essential Oil Origins gives a brief history. Hundreds of thousands of different plants cover the planet earth, playing a vital role in animal and human life by producing oxygen, providing food, regulating water, creating habitats, and more. There is a wide variety of plant types, species, and families, and each plant has characteristics that make it useful for certain purposes. Within the seeds, bark, stems, flowers, roots, wood, needles, and fruit of these diverse plants, a variety of essential oils can be found. While the idea of extracting essential oils from plant parts and using them for things like cooking, health, and aromatherapy might be foreign to some, these practices have actually been around for thousands of years.


Lifelong Vitality

While the use of dietary supplements is a widely debated topic (and has been for years), the fact remains that many people are not receiving the nutrients their bodies need through food alone. As is evident by the information above, while there are many food sources that provide vitamins and minerals, a majority of American adults are falling short in their daily nutrient requirements. In our eBook, Lifelong Vitality, learn about using doTERRA supplements for a natural way to get the nutrients your body needs.
