6 Essential Oils for Beginners to Raise Your Vibrations

Did you know that you can use essential oils to raise your vibration? That, in turn, can help you in your ability to manifest.
Essential oils are amazing natural oils distilled from different parts of flowers, plants or herbs including the leaves and roots. They are very powerful due to their concentration of phytochemicals.
The oils themselves carry high vibration and can be used to naturally and holistically heal the body, not only physically, but also emotionally and spiritually. They smell delicious and contain unique therapeutic properties.
Essential oils have been an important part of history, medicine, and religion for centuries.
 

Past Oilers

As far back as 3500 BC, the Egyptians and Mesopotamians were distilling oils. When Tutankhamen’s tomb was discovered in 1922, many jars were found by the archeologists that had been used to hold oils.
Chinese aromatherapists believed that by extracting the fragrance from a plant you were freeing its soul.
Hippocrates used aromatherapy from several essential oils to fumigate the city of Athens in Ancient Greece and ward off the plague.
Like many of the world’s natural secrets and remedies, there was a period of time where that information was withheld from the larger population in the Dark Ages when using plants as medicine could get you labelled as a witch.
Modern society had lost some of that wisdom and ability to use plants as natural solutions to many illnesses and emotional issues. Thankfully they have gained popularity in recent years and fortunately, those secrets and remedies were not lost forever.
 

Essential Oils Today

Today many scientists, physicians. and researchers are rediscovering the wonderful healing benefits of essential oils.
Essential oils are much better for the environment than perfume oils as they are non-toxic.
If you enjoy using candles 🕯, choosing a candle that has been infused with essential oils is best, or you can even place a few drops of your favourite essential oil with water into a diffuser and use it to create a lovely fragrance in your home or workspace.
 
Essential oils Benefits: Combat depression fight bacteria strengthen your immune system speed recovery from illnessBalance hormones used in homemade cleaning and skin products diffuse in the air for natural cleansing.

The reason that the aromas and scents of essential oils are so beneficial to us is due to our own powerful nasal receptors.

When we are exposed to the smells our brain receives a signal interpreting the scent. This can change our mood and stimulate different healing physical, emotional and mental reactions.

How to use Copaiba oil – doTERRA essential oils

how to use copaiba doterraHow to use Copaiba oil – doTERRA

Hopefully you’ve gotten your hands on a bottle of doTERRA’s newly offered Copaiba oil (pronounced Co-pie-EE-ba). It’s a tremendously powerful oil both for mind and body. It can calm you when you feel anxious, boost your immune system and help with digestive and respiratory issues. It’s very effective at calming the nervous system which is why many people purchase it.  The stories we have pouring in from our team about how Copaiba is helping them are incredible! And now let’s chat about how to use Copaiba.

Why use Copaiba?

Copaiba essential oil is made from the resin of the copaiba tree which can grow to be over 100 feet in tropical South America. Copaiba oil is widely used in beauty products including soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes. The natives of north and northeastern Brazil have been using Copaiba since the 16th century.

Copaiba supports the health of your cardiovascular, immune, digestive and respiratory systems. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps calm, soothe, and support the nervous system. Copaiba promotes clear, smooth skin and reduces the appearance of blemishes.

Because of Copaiba’s chemical makeup its effects on the body are similar to CBD oil. It does not contain psychoactive cannabinoids like marijuana-derived products can, but the main component, caryophyllene, may be neuro-protective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits.  This is exciting! You can read more about CBD vs Copaiba by clicking here.

Similar to Frankincense, Copaiba supports a healthy inflammatory response and so these two oils are even more powerful used  together.

You can use DoTERRA’s Copaiba topically, aromatically and internally.

How to use Copaiba topically:

  • Dilute one to two drops with a carrier oil , then apply to desired area. Rub in well. Repeat as needed. This is a life saver for the neck pain I get sometimes from sleeping wrong or working at the computer too long. It feels better in minutes!
  • Add 20 drops of Copaiba to a roller bottle and top off with Fractionated coconut oil. This is for adults – use more, if needed, for pain. Click here to learn more about dilution and making a roller bottle. 
  • I recommend doTRRA’s fractionated coconut oil as a carrier for topical use and roller bottles. It is non-greasy and doesn’t stain.
  • Apply topically combined with a carrier oil or a facial moisturizer to help keep skin clean and clear, and to help reduce the appearance of blemishes. I recommend doTERRA’s Hydrating Cream, it is my absolute favorite!

How to use Copaiba internally:

  • Drop 1-2 drops under the tongue in the morning and evening. Hold under your tongue 20 seconds then follow with water
  • Add 1 to 2 drops to water, juice, or tea daily or as needed
  • Add 1-2 drops to an empty veggie capsule. You can also add a carrier oil like coconut, olive or avocado oil to the capsule (optional – makes it gentler on your stomach).
  • Take internally to help soothe and calm the nervous system.
  • Combine with Frankincense for daily use for optimal health
    Note: internal use should not exceed 24 drops a day

How to use Copaiba aromatically:

  • Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.
  • Aromatic use supports the immune system, is calming and promotes a restful night’s sleep.
  • Copaiba combines well with: Lavender, Serenity blend, Frankincense, Lemon, Wild Orange, Fir oils, Cedarwood (hello sleep!) and many others. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

How Do I Use Essential Oils Safely?

christmaspic

Why doTERRA?Using essential oils.

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

But what exactly is a volatile aromatic compound? In short, these compounds are small organic molecules that tend to change quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. They are called volatile because they change state quickly. When you first open a bottle of essential oil, you instantly notice that the aroma is potent and you can smell it typically even from some distance. The physical and chemical properties of the volatile aromatic compounds that compose essential oils allow them to quickly move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for applications inclusion in aromatherapy – using these compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications. The type of volatile aromatic compounds present in an essential oil determines both the oil’s aroma and the benefits it offers.

Over 3,000 varieties of volatile aromatic compounds have been identified to date. The nature of an essential oil varies from plant to plant, within botanical families, and from species to species. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits.

Even with pure essential oils the composition of the oil can vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather, making every step of the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil product.

Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in complex essential oil blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Want to learn how to use essential oils?
