At Ocean Mist Counseling and Wellness, we are passionate about holistic health and wellness and believe that our physical health can have a direct impact on our emotional health and vice versa. We incorporate aromatherapy into the majority of our therapy sessions, so enjoy guessing what blend of oils you can smell diffusing through the air next time you visit the office!
What are Essential oils? Essential oils are extracts from plants that are either steam distilled or cold pressed. They can be used topically, aromatically and internally. There are numerous ways that essential oils help to promote health and wellness – from helping to relieve aches and pains, to improving sleep quality, to helping to release limiting belief patterns, to increasing self-confidence and self-care.
Essential oils can also help with:
Improved Concentration & Focus
Natural Health & Wellness
and so much more.
NOTE: NOT ALL OILS CAN BE TAKEN INTERNALLY AND SOME ARE NOT SAFE TO USE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT.
doTERRA is the world leader in sourcing, testing, manufacturing, and distributing CPTG® (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) essential oils through a global network of more than five million customers. doTERRA, the Latin derivative meaning “gift of the Earth,” sets the standard for essential oils by providing to its customers the most tested and most trusted oils and having developed the expertise and commitment required to derive these unique oils directly from the best sources in the world. doTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing® provides local growers and distillers fair compensation for their efforts, creating stronger local economies and a healthier, stable supply chain.

Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade
doTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils represent the safest and most beneficial oils available in the world today. For an oil to be CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade the oil must be:
Pure and natural, with aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants
Free from fillers or artificial ingredients; no dilution of active qualities
Free of contaminants, pesticides, or chemical residues
Rigorously tested for standards of chemical composition
Cross tested using mass spectrometry and gas chromatography to ensure exact purity and composition potency
Sourced by a global network of leading essential oil chemists and growers to ensure correct species, growth in ideal environments, and that raw plant materials were carefully harvested at the right time
One of the reasons I love doTERRA is that the company works to improve lives and communities throughout the world. Many of the essential oils offered by doTERRA are sourced in developing countries, where the growers and distillers are often at the mercy of third parties. doTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing helps create coalitions of growers and distillers that ensure local communities receive fair and timely payments to support their families and communities. doTERRA works with these coalitions to provide the resources, tools, and training necessary to ensure a long-lasting partnership.
