Essential Oils and Chemical Responses
The Scientific Makeup of the doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy™ System
Because different essential oils can cause different emotional and chemical responses, the design of the doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy System is based on chemistry. Each essential oil blend in the system is made up of basic chemicals that are categorized into different classifications. In aromatherapy, different classifications are used to create desired emotional responses. Each product in the doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy System has been designed to achieve a unique chemical profile. In most cases, essential oils can be classified as having either uplifting or calming effects. Using distinct essential oil groups, the doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy System relies on specific plant categories to elicit emotional responses based on the chemical components included in each essential oil.
