essential oils are powerful chemical compounds - be aware

It is important to know that 95% of all essential oils that are sold globally, are not actually plant extracts.

It is a sad, yet true fact that the essential oil industry is not regulated, which is why I emphasis to you, to do your homework when it comes to using products that claim to be 100% pure essential oils yet they are not.

The essential oils that I use are from a company called doTERRA. I choose to align myself with this company for a few reasons:

  • Third party testing assures me that the essential oil I put on my skin, digest and use as aromatherapy is pure, therapeutic and of the highest quality

  • The information that I share on my website will only benefit you if you use doTERRA essential oils or an oil of similar potency, purity and authority.

  • doTERRA comes under the Australian and New Zealand Food Standards code and as at the date of this writing, is the only essential oil company that is registered in Australia

  • doTERRA publicly displays their batch testing results on a website called and offer this to all and any essential oil companies wishing to have their essential oils tested for purity. None have come forward to date.


Essential Oil has fast become one of the great joys in my life and this is because of two reasons. The first, they live up to their promise of soothing my sickness both physical and emotional and secondly, they present a teaching opportunity for me to share their exquisite benefits.

I am absolutely 100% in love with my oils and can’t help but celebrate this.I am so grateful you are here thinking about taking your next step to owning your own Essential Oils. I would love you to join me on my oily journey and you will find me here most days Essential Oil Gatherings

ask your questions & discover for yourself just how good essential oils can be.
