Holistic Alternatives - Essential Oils at Nurturing with Miranda

Essential oils have been used as part of cultural practices and customs, however scientific research shows that they can be used efficiently and safely in a wider range of practices and applications with great results. Finding alternatives for everyday living that aren’t filled with toxic chemicals can be never ending. But these essential oils are produced from the highest quality, best part of the plants and are a great alternative to synthetic or chemical based products that can be used to support you in your everyday life.

My dōTERRA Essential Oil Experience

I’ve personally been using essential oils in some way or another my whole life, trying anything and everything I could find. I have always been on the lookout for natural alternatives that provide relief, relaxation and support, rather than taking a prescription pill or using a chemical-based product as I’m quite sensitive to chemicals. What originally drew me to dōTERRA oils was not just the high quality of essential oils which are independently tested, proven, and indigenously sourced, but it’s the company’s ethos and how much they give back to communities through co-impact sourcing and sustainability. Instead of being a big company that buys land and produces goods from what they own, they partner with small farmers (often in third-world countries) and provide support and assistance to allow them to create a sustainable livelihood for themselves, their families and the local community. Unlike charities that provide food or supplies to the poor and hungry, or a company that purchases their land, they’re giving them the means to sustain and support themselves for future generations to come, not just the present. Like the saying, “give a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you’ve fed him for a lifetime”, the same principle applies.
One of my favourite sustainability stories with dōTERRA is about the essential Oil Arborvitae ‘the Tree of life’. This essential oil has been extracted from the waste product of the cedar trees that can grow for hundreds of years, commonly grown in Canada. Sacred to the Native American Indians, they got their permission and blessings to use the waste by product (sawdust) from the timber milling industry and then after their steam distilling process, they then give their leftover waste sawdust for use in paper mills. This essential oil is created with no additional environmental impact as it is created from waste, and even the left over product can be reused to make paper.

Healing Naturally with Doterra Essential Oils

I love the oils and I use them on a daily basis with every aspect of my life. Essential oils contain so many different properties that can support you on your healing journey. I use essential oils to help with everything from cleaning, sleep and respiratory support, burns and bites, to relaxing muscles in my back and joints. It’s always been vital to me to find natural alternative home remedies to help improve my health. I stopped buying store bought chemical based perfumes and instead either make my own ‘Purefume’ or use one of the beautiful blends that have already been created to support me emotionally. By choosing natural alternatives you are not only supporting yourself and the environment, but you are also supporting yourself financially keeping more money in your back pocket. Finding the right essential oil can be helpful in our daily lives for a number of purposes.

Doterra Essential oils are created naturally from plants

For me, the oils are also highly vibrational, with every oil having their own unique energetic properties. Noticing if you love the aroma of some oils but find you really dislike the smell of others provides insight and meaning. For example, I dislike the smell and taste of coriander, which is known as “the oil of loyalty” – specifically towards themselves. This often indicates a person who is trapped in a pattern of helping others while neglecting their own needs, and who has a deep urge to do what is perceived to be “right.” Working with coriander reminds us that everyone is special and has something to offer to the world that no one else does. The most important thing I’ve learned is to honour, respect, trust, and value myself. Not relying on the approval of or ‘fitting in’ with others, and being courageous enough to step outside the box to be authentically myself.

Reward Yourself by Supporting the Environment

By choosing natural alternatives you are not only supporting yourself and the environment, but you are also supporting yourself financially. Instead of buying your day-to-day products like dishwashing liquid, detergent, toothpaste, shampoo, and conditioner from the supermarket, you are essentially buying them from yourself, rewarded with points and free products, keeping more money in your back pocket while still making an environmental impact. With dōTERRA you can choose to just enjoy using the products, but there is also the opportunity to earn an income or make a business out of it if you choose.
