Essential oils are truly a gift from nature. The use of plant essences and aromatics have been around for a very long time and used all over the world.  Some cultures date the use of essential oils as far back as 3000 years ago.

So what is an essential oil?

In scientific terms, an essential oil is a volatile aromatic compound. When you enjoy the scent of a bouquet or freshly cut herbs such as rosemary and oregano, you’re experiencing the aromatic quality of essential oils. Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways, from supporting emotional and physical wellness to cooking, baking, cleaning, bath and natural beauty applications.

nikki-oWhy I use essential oils.

I have been using essential oils for many years but have never used them in so many ways until I found dōTERRA®. The first time I was introduced to essential oils was in college. I was a chemistry major and had to distill an essential oil from a plant of choice. Since eucalyptus trees lined my college campus, I naturally chose that. After learning about the properties and benefits of eucalyptus essential oil, I immediately started to use it to help manage the seasonal discomforts that allergies and upper respiratory issues bring. Since discovering  dōTERRA®, essential oils are now a part of my daily routine to manage stress, support my immune system function, clean my house, uplift my spirits and support my physical activities.

Essential oils have become a natural extension of my work as a Yoga Teacher as they have added another dimension to help support my students in the mind, body, soul connection. I am even more passionate about sharing wellness with others and helping people bring healthy alternatives into their lives.

If you’re interested in learning more about how you can use essential oils in your life or how they can support your yoga and meditation practice, I would love to connect with you and would be so happy to share the knowledge.
