One of the best tools for the budding Doterra consultant as well as customer is the Doterra essential oils guide, it’s not just a catalog it’s a guide to the oils itself

 

One of the first things you are going to need to buy Doterra essential oils is their fanatic Doterra oil guide so you can browse at all the new products and decide what you want to purchase next. 

 

However, as i said before Doterra product guide is more than just a catalog. It gives the reader some history of the company and they felt they were going to revolutionize the world of essential oils which I believe they have achieved in a very short amount of time. 

 

The is a lovely section where the Doterra oil guide explains that, "Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of freshly cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. Essential oils can lift the mood, calm the senses, and elicit powerful emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal".  You can almost taste the power of their essential oils even before you have them in your hand. 

 

The Doterra product guide will also explain how the therapeutic-grade essential oils is extracted, because they are most often extracted via a low-heat steam distillation process in which steam is circulated under pressure through plant material, liberating the essential oils into the steam. As the steam mixture cools, the water and oils are separated and the oil is collected in its pure form. To ensure the highest quality oil extract of correct chemical composition, temperature and pressure must be monitored very closely.
