Here at Branch we love using essential oils, from our misters, diffuser, cleaning products and the ribbons on our bags. We're big believers in the benefits of quality, all natural essential oils and especially love using the doTerra brand!
We decided to share a bit about the doTerra company and our TOP THREE back-to-school/work oils to help you create a focused, relaxed and healthy space for you and your family this year.
doTerra was founded in 2008 and was built on the mission of sharing therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world. They formed a company and named it doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.” How perfect is that!
The doTerra team has grown since its initial inception, but the mission remains the same—to provide essential oils that appeal to everyone from the novice to the expert, and that can be used safely on your loved ones.
"Think of oils as you would a dietary supplement; when you use supplements you are doing so to give your body the nutrients it needs to function properly. While there are differences from person to person in usage preference, it is generally accepted that using the oils consistently is important to getting your desired results." - From doTerra's Why You Should Use Essential Oils Daily
We love the vission of this amazing company and are proud to be a part of the mission!
