Gift of the Earth
dōTERRA® is one of the largest, most tested and most trusted essential oil brands in the world and has set the standard for essential oil potency and purity globally. Essential oils are the concentrated essences of the plants immune system and have a chemical footprint similar to the human body. Every essential oil has different chemical properties that interact synergistically with the human body mentally, emotionally and physically. Within 2 minutes of applying oils to the skin they are in the bloodstream and within 20 minutes they are in every cell in the body. By placing just a few drops of oil into a diffuser, this totally transforms and uplifts the atmosphere in any environment within minutes. Essential oils encourage the body back into a state of wellness, relaxation and stimulation and have the ability to shift your state almost instantly.
I consider myself exceptionally fortunate to have discovered the natural world of essential oils, specifically dōTERRA. Having initially come from a place of despair and doubt, it gives me great pride to now share the positive impact that dōTERRA has had on my life with my entire family, friends and countless others worldwide.
Essential oils are natural gifts of the earth. dōTERRA oils are 100% pure, so you can be sure they are totally safe, but they are extremely powerful and must be used with informed knowledge. To give you an idea of just how strong they are, essential oils are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs. To put that into context, 1 drop of dōTERRA's peppermint oil has the equivalent impact on the body of drinking approximately 28 cups of peppermint tea. The use of a carrier oil is advised as this increases the efficacy by ‘locking’ the oils into the skin (essential oils are volatile compounds, which means they would otherwise evaporate), as this increases their longevity and reduces any possible skin sensitivities.
dōTERRA® has an impressive range of pure tested grade single essential oils and blends that are capable of energising, lifting mood, giving hope, reducing irritability, soothing heightened emotions and so much more. Never has it been more important to take a pro-active approach of our own well-being.
Frankincense oil supports the immune, nervous, and digestive systems and aids healthy cellular function.
Whilst Lavender oil includes elements that make it effective for soothing skin irritations, reducing anxiousness and feelings of tension, as well as promoting a restful environment for sleep.
The information and guidance I share is based ONLY on dōTERRA Oils. Their Certified Tested Grade essential oils set the standard for the purest, highest grade essential oil on the market.
They test each batch of oils, not just once, but with 7 different purification processes.
And they test for purification even after bottling, and over time to ensure constant quality.
They are free of fillers, pesticides, synthetics, contaminants + other toxins.
Many companies dilute their essential oils with other carrier oils, fragrances, and fillers. So, while they may be cheaper in cost, they are certainly not the tested grade or safe enough to be used in or on your body.
Essential Oils & Hypnotherapy
I am often asked why I incorporate the use of essential oils within my hypnotherapy practice.
When you find yourself sabotaging your own success and in need of taking back control of your life, hypnotherapy can offer deep subliminal repair and reprogramming of the subconscious mind. This helps eradicate limiting beliefs and habits overriding our conscious will and thoughts that are often the cause preventing us from achieving what we have had always wanted.
Essential oils are natures gift for managing our daily well being
Hypnotherapy communicates with and rewires the subconscious mind helping to let go of what's holding us back
I have found that when used effectively and safely, essential oils work as the daily go-to support for life's ups and downs. Pre or Post RTT®, essential oils complement the process naturally and work in supporting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle holistically everyday thereafter.
By combining RTT® together with the added support of relevant essential oils helps support and enhance the positive change that my clients desire. It very quickly becomes a welcomed new way of life.
My essential oils backstory...
When it finally dawned on me that the only person who could change my life was staring back at me in the mirror, I literally made up my mind in an instant that I was going to take full responsibility and accountability for my health and in so doing, I began the journey of what was about to improve not only my health but my entire life as well as the lives of others.
“We have two lives, and the second begins when we realise we only have one"
The infamous saying "Life begins at 40" had the most bizarre cliché for me as it was when I turned 40 that I was the lowest I had ever felt in my life and found myself deteriorating daily. I will forever be thankful that I serendipitously discovered dōTERRA some 7 months later which is my life truly did begin.
From the day I experienced the unexpected benefits of dōTERRA's oils and supplements, therein lay what was about to become one of the greatest passions in my life. I literally started loving my whole self back to life in more ways than I ever could have imagined or wished for.
My journey continues...
The effectiveness and benefits of these tried, tested and trusted essential oils continues to pique my curiosity with the more I learn. So much so that I have been inspired to undertake an Aromatherapy Diploma, which is proving to be music to my soul.
I just love acquiring new knowledge and ultimately discovering what the world of Aromatherapy and natural pure grade essential oils can really do for us all.
Perhaps on a much deeper level, I knew that the hours of research, time and energy I invested in this delightful company, its mission, its people and offerings, would prove invaluably life changing not just for myself but everyone I connect with.

Three ways to use essential oils
Inhale from the bottle, or apply 1 drop to your hands and inhale or use a diffuser to release the power of the essential oil to open airways or boost mood.
Dilute with a carrier oil and apply 1-2 drops to the bottoms of feet, pulse points or affected areas to target specific needs.
Make sure the oil is safe to be used internally. Put 1 drop under the tongue, in water, tea, juice, food
or take in a veggie capsule.
Did you know ... people who suffer with Anosmia (the loss of the sense of smell, either total or partial) will still benefit from essential oils even though they can't actually smell them?
When we inhale an essential oil, there is a two-fold reaction in the body; a physiological one, which is hard-wired, and a psychological one which is not, and this varies from person to person.
The body will react to essential oil constituents in the usual ways, but the mind does not!
For those of us with an intact sense of smell it also may be interesting to note that an essential oil cannot have one effect on the mind and the opposite effect on the body. The psychological effects also partly depend on our state of mind and may be change at different times.
Certified Pure Tested Grade CPTG®
To ensure that each bottle of essential oil is safe, pure and free from contaminants or synthetic fillers, dōTERRA created the CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade® protocol. The CPTG process includes a rigorous examination of every batch of oil, along with a rigorous in-house testing process to guarantee transparency.
Unlike others in the essential oils industry, dōTERRA is built on firm science. They employ more than 30 scientists and boasts 2,200 square feet in cutting-edge laboratory space. dōTERRA's committed scientists continue to push the boundaries of rigor in essential oil testing and they are responsible for breakthroughs in sourcing, evolving models of use, and state-of the-art testing procedures. dōTERRA has pushed aromatherapy tradition into the 21st century and remains the unmatched industry leader in innovation.
So, before you buy essential oils or to tell if at the essential oils you are using are pure, do a little research to find out how they source, harvest, distil and test their oils. Many essential oils are not safe to take internally so research and education is critical!
dōTERRA® is recognised for their continuous efforts as a company that ethically sources globally.
When dōTERRA looks for sourcing partnerships, they deliberately choose locations where they can improve the individual, social, economic, and environmental well-being, while producing the highest quality essential oils.
As many essential oils grow best in developing countries, dōTERRA is in a unique position to build and support ethical supply chains that benefit rural communities in need.
Healing Hands Foundation
This is dōTERRA's very own nonprofit charity to those many impoverished countries by providing fresh water supplies, schools, and clinics.
From the very beginning, doTERRA Founding Executives had the vision of “bringing healing and hope to the world through providing global communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant - empowering individuals and changing lives.” Their desire and commitment to “establish a pattern of giving” carries forward.
Pioneering Advanced Research
dōTERRA became the first global aromatherapy and essential oils
company to join Research Institute for Fragrance Materials in June 2020.
RIFM’s purpose is to gather and analyse scientific data, engage in testing and evaluation, distribute information, cooperate with official agencies, and encourage uniform safety standards related to the use of fragrance ingredients.
dōTERRA continues to pioneer advanced essential oil research to improve the worldwide understanding of the science and safety behind essential oils, as well as their uses aromatically, topically and internally.
