doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy System Review

doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy Blends - BeautyMindSpirit.com
 
It has been a long time, beautiful people. I'm sorry for the delay of posts. I have been going through a lot of life changes and some ups as well as downs. If you'd like to hear all about it, I'll either post a video or create a post about it for you. Alas, I am here to share a review of this deliciously smelling essential oil blend kit that I received from doTERRA.
 
Many of us have heard of doTERRA by now... and essential oils have become a stable in a lot of our lives. I grew up with a unique dynamic of Amish/Mennonite and Native American relatives. Because of this, I have been using tinctures, herbs, and salves for my medicine needs all of my life. It was only natural that I would fall in love with essential oils several years ago when I was first introduced to them. I like all kinds of brands.. Young Living, Aura Cacia, Mountain Rose Herbs, etc. I also love supporting local essential oil vendors and distillers when I can. 
Once my friend Sabrina showed me this essential oil kit that had all of these amazingly smelling emotional blends.. I had to get my hands on my own, because the blends were having an affect on my moods. I could feel them working! I decided to sign up and take advantage of the discount associated with becoming a wellness advocate

Here is what doTERRA says about this kit:

The doTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy System is based on chemistry. Beginning with a specific chemical profile, the blends were put together based on the known properties of their chemical constituents as opposed to simply providing a pleasant aroma. While responses can be highly individual, the blending of these specific essential oils has created a synergistic composition ideal to promoting healthy emotional responses.

doTERRA Motivate™ Encouraging Blend is a wonderful combination of several citrus and mint essential oils, including Yuzu, Clementine, and Peppermint. This blend marks dōTERRA’s first use of Yuzu, the limonene-rich essential oil expressed from the peel of the mandarin-like Japanese fruit. The resulting chemical profile is high in monoterpenes and monoterpene alcohols, which are known for their uplifting and toning properties. Motivate is the perfect aromatic compliment to help promote feelings of confidence when working on an important school project.

doTERRA Cheer™ Uplifting Blend is an invigorating mixture of citrus and spice essential oils. Featuring Wild Orange, Cinnamon Bark, and Star Anise essential oils, the resulting chemical profile is rich in monoterpene and aldehydes, renowned for their uplifting and warming properties. Comprised almost entirely of the phenylpropene anethole, Star Anise essential oil brings potent energizing characteristics to the new blend. Apply one drop of doTERRA Cheer to your hands, rub together, and inhale deeply to help incite feelings of optimism.

doTERRA Passion™ Inspiring Blend balances spice and herbal essential oils. Included in the blend is Damiana, a very rare essential oil rich in 1,8-cineole and alpha pinene, which is renowned for its renewing properties. Combining Cinnamon Bark, Ginger, Cardamom, Clove, and Damiana creates a chemical profile with high concentrations of phenols and ethers to provide warming and renewing benefits. Diffuse doTERRA Passion at your work desk to help spark creativity.



doTERRA Forgive™ Renewing Blend mixes familiar tree and herb essential oils to create a diverse chemical profile with high concentrations of monoterpene esters, alcohols, and sesquiterpenes. Most interesting is the introduction of Nootka Tree Wood, an essential oil with a very diverse chemistry composed primarily of soothing and grounding sesquiterpenes. Nootka Tree Oil is known largely for balancing emotions in stressful situations. Pure Thyme essential oil balances out the blend with potent renewing and toning properties. No meditation session is complete without diffusing doTERRA Forgive to help encourage patience and contentment.

doTERRA Console™ Comforting Blend combines floral and tree essential oils. The combination of Rose absolute, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Sandalwood, and several other highly valued tree and flower essential oils creates a blend rich in both monoterpenes and sesquiterpene alcohols. Labdanum absolute provides a number of interesting characteristics to the blend. High in alpha-pinene, Labdanum is highly renewing and its distinctive aroma is prized for its ability to balance competing scents. The final product mirrors its chemical structure and aromatic profile, being highly grounding and renewing. A drop or two of doTERRA Console on your shirt collar can be that little extra you need to help counteract feelings of grief and sadness.

doTERRA Peace™ Reassuring blend is a fusion of floral and mint essential oils. The union of popular essential oils such as Lavender and Spearmint, along with the essence of some lesser-known plants such as Labdanum, creates a chemical profile rich in monoterpene esters and alcohols for a renewing and toning experience. The resulting aromatic profile is calming and promotes feelings of peace and reassurance. Diffuse doTERRA Peace at night to help promote the calming and restful sleep environment that you need to embrace the next day.

There are a few ways you can use these oils. Use aromatically in an essential oil diffuser. Apply 1 or 2 drops in your palms, rub hands together, cup in front of your nose, and inhale deeply (do not touch eyes). Dilute and apply topically to aromatherapy touch points such as the back of the neck, on the wrists, and over the heart.  
 
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
