Talking about essential oils, is not complete without an exploration of their origin. Understanding how essential oils are sourced, gives us a wonderful insight into how nature created these magical oils and the importance of understanding the power of our purchasing dollars in uplifting the lives of others.  doTERRA sources Pink Pepper from two locations: from Kenya in Africa and Peru. Two sourcing models are used- traditional sourcing and co-impact sourcing.

In my own words- the reason I purchase doTERRA essential oils is that I understand that the oils come from trusted sources, they are not just purchased bulk from a middleman who bought it off another middleman. I can trust the quality and purity of the essential oils, because doTERRA goes to the original source, and develops relationships with the people who are actually growing the plants that are distilled, to make the essential oils.

In doTERRA’s own words:

Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.

Additionally, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® helps support development projects in sourcing communities. Projects include schools, health clinics, improved infrastructure and clean water systems.

In the video below, you will see how the simple act of being able to harvest Pink Peppercorns has helped two special women provide food for their children, when all hope had been lost after the death of their husbands.

“It assists individuals in accepting their body and embracing their physical attractiveness. Cinnamon dispels fear of rejection and nurtures healthy sexuality. It rekindles sexual energies where there has been repression, trauma or abuse. It can also bring clarity to souls who struggle with their sexual identity. Cinnamon also assists individuals in relationships where insecurities are shown by jealousy or control. It encourages the soul to let go of control and allow others to be free. Cinnamon can nurture strong relationships based on mutual love and respect. Where there are other insecurities covered by pretense, facade and pride, Cinnamon invites individuals to be honest and vulnerable, thereby allowing true intimacy to emerge”.

Myrrh essential oil

Myrrh Essential oil

Myrrh essential oil

Myrrh Essential oil

Myrrh Essential oil is a beautiful thick, sticky essential oil made from the resin of the Commiphora myrrha.

Native to regions in Africa and Arabia, the Commiphora myrrha is a small tree that produces a sap that hardens into the resin known as myrrh. Typically a thorny tree or shrub, the myrrh tree produces few leaves and rugged, angled branches. Due to its highly aromatic nature, myrrh has been used since ancient times for medicine, perfumery, incense, religious purposes, and burials. When extracted, sap from the myrrh tree, also referred to as myrrh gum, eventually hardens and dries into myrrh resin. When the myrrh tree is harvested, it “bleeds” the tree sap, which then turns hard and glossy. Through steam distillation, myrrh resin is converted into an essential oil with a dry, woody aroma.  Source: doterra.com

According to Modern Essentials, because of its chemical constituents Myrrh is

It has been used historically as incense in religious rituals, in embalming and as a cure for many ailments including herpes, cancer, leprosy and syphilis. The French have also used it medicinally to help with a wide range of issues including respiratory and digestion related issues and thrush.

Myrrh is also reputed to be fantastic for oral health and if you watch the video below you will find out about how Myrrh and other trees were linked to the origin of the humble toothbrush!

 

Myrrh essential oil for beauty and Skincare

Researchers have found that the topical application of Myrrh essential oil can help decrease sebum damage and protect skin from damage.

Due to its chemical design, Myrrh oil has proven to be helpful for cleansing, improving the appearance of skin, and promoting grounding feelings or the balancing of emotions. The sesquiterpene ethers in Myrrh essential oil are known for their soothing properties, which is why Myrrh is useful for soothing the skin or soothing emotions. One of the primary sesquiterpene ethers in Myrrh oil, curzerene, is commonly added to skin care products because of its ability to improve the appearance of skin.

 

Myrrh essential oil is an active ingredient in the dotERRA Spa Clarifying Mud Mask and in Salubelle (Imortelle in USA), both pictured below.

Blends using Myrrh Essential oil

My favourite oil to blend with Myrrh is lavender, but it is a match made in heaven with Sandalwood and Frankincense and also Cedarwood, to achieve deep rest and relaxation.

Emotional Properties of Myrrh:

Emotions & Essential oils- A Modern Resource for Healing identifies Myrrh as the Oil of Mother Earth due to its nurturing properties.

Myrrh oil nurtures the soul’s relationship with its maternal mother and with the earth. This oil supports individuals who have had disturbances with the mother-child bond. Whether it is a division between the child and the biological mother or whether it be mother earth herself, Myrrh can help bridge the gap and heal the disturbance. This division or lack of attachment may be related to adoption, birth trauma, malnourishment, experiences of abandonment or other childhood issues. Myrrh helps the soul to feel the love and nurturing presence of mother. Similar to the nutrient-rich colostrum found in mothers milk, Myrrh oil inoculates individuals from the adverse and harmful effects of the world. Like the warmth of a mother’s love for her child, Myrrh assists individuals in feeling safe and secure”. 

 

To purchase Myrrh essential oil, click on the image below and follow the instructions.  In December 2017, Myrrh is 10% off with a wholesale price of $83.25 AUD for Australian customers or $110.29 AUD for retail customers.

Best Essential oils for Summer and the Silly Season

Summer’s almost here and on top of that it’s the silly season, and the kids are about to be off school for 8 weeks! So here’s my top tips for surviving the heat, the crowds, and your kids with your sanity intact! I recorded a Facebook live from my Facebook page for you, otherwise below the video I will outline my top tips.

 

 

Christmas Tips:

Beat the bloating and “overfull” feeling after your Christmas feast with DigestZen Essential Oil.  It’s comprise of Anise, Peppermint, Ginger, Caraway, Coriander, Tarragon and Fennel Essential oils and helps your body digest that abundance of alcohol and food. You can place one drop in a glass of water if you enjoy the licorice and aniseed flavours, diffuse in your diffuser or rub onto your abdomen. For children and those with sensitive skin always dilute in a tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil.

Balance Essential oil is fantastic to keep you and the kids and the entire family calm during Christmas shopping!

Get your skin beach ready!

Grapefruit and Cypress Essential oils are your best friend. Grapefruit helps smash out those lumps and dimples in your legs, and Cypress works wonders with those veins.  My favourite thing to do is to make up my own body scrub with raw sugar, 10 drops of essential oil and enough coconut oil to cover and mix through. I keep it in a sealed container in the bathroom and scrub my legs before shaving- it makes my legs all nice and lubricated, so I don’t have to use soap on my legs.  If you prefer, doTERRA has a gorgeous body scrub in the Day Spa collection which is made with Bergamot essential oil.

 

Get prepared for the great outdoors!

Lavender is your best friend for bites, stings, burns and sunburn and blemishes. Apply directly to the source of irritation.  Terramour is our special blend of essential oils which you can use instead of those nasty chemical laden DDT bug sprays. It comes in a 15ml bottle or in a spray bottle for easy application. This is a blend of fractionated coconut oil, Ylang Ylang, Tiamnu seed oil, Nootka Oil, Catnip Oil, Litsea Oil, Arborvitae Oil, Lemon Eucalyptus oil, and Vanilla Bean extract.
