Essential Oils & Tiro Tribe
Q: What are essential oils?
Essential oils are naturally occurring, aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of the plants and are the plants' natural defense mechanism. Essential oils have been used throughout history for their medicinal, therapeutic benefits, from ancient Egyptian times to now. In their pure form, they are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs. One drop of doTerra peppermint oil is equivalent to 22 cups of peppermint tea. As they are highly potent, a little goes a long way (usually one or two drops per application), and they are a safe, effective, affordable alternative to many synthetic products/remedies.
