Information about dōTERRA® Essential Oils and Aromatherapy
Reliable resources to make aromatherapy work for you
Besides having a reliable source for essential oils, reliable information about the oils is an integral part of any aromatherapy work. Answers to questions like “How does aromatherapy work?” and “What’s the latest research on essential oils?”, properties of the oils, and so forth are very important.
However, the question of how aromatherapy works is too broad to deal with adequately on this website. In addition, the FDA severely restricts the information that can be presented here. And so, basic background information is about the best we can do here. And, hopefully, the information here will be able to fill out over time.
