dōTERRA has just introduced two new essential oils – meet Spikenard and Petitgrain.
Spikenard, a flowering plant of the Valerian family, is native to high altitudes in the sub-alpine and alpine regions of the Himalayan mountains. Historically, Spikenard was used to uplift mood and promote relaxation.
Today, the oil is commonly used in perfumes and massage oils for its woody, musty scent. By sourcing Spikenard oil from Nepal, dōTERRA is able to support much needed income streams for harvesters and partner distillers, particularly in the remote areas where it is harvested through Co-impact Sourcing initiatives.
Spikenard can be diffused or applied topically for feelings of relaxation, and added to moisturiser for skin enhancement.
Petitgrain essential oil is derived from the bitter orange tree, which has a long history of use in traditional health practices. Historically, Petitgrain essential oil has been used for cleaning purposes and it has been used internally to support healthy immune system and nervous system function.
Petitgrain is used in the perfume industry, giving body sprays, fragrances, lotions, and colognes a fresh, herbaceous note. By sourcing Petitgrain from Paraguay through Co-Impact Sourcing, dōTERRA is able to support needed rural community development projects and provide diversified income for small-scale farmers.
Petitgrain can be diffused for a calming and relaxing aroma. It can be taken internally to assist the nervous system and boost the immune system.
Both of these essential oils are now available to be ordered from the US. Mine are on their way and I can’t wait to meet them!
