I, like Mary Ellen Derwis-Balaz use Doterra essential oils, and have a lot of success. I would be interested in taking one of her classes. Mary Ellen Derwis-Balaz if you can provide CEs then I highly suggest you contact Mike or Cindy Hinkle of the world massage festival and offer to teach one of your classes during festival. I can assure you you would have a lot of participants. This is my first year in 6 that I'm unable to attend festival.

Pat, I have had wonderful results with basil on the feet. Used it on a 4 year old boy who was bouncing off the walls. and he calmed almost immediately and became more focused. Give it a try.

I use essential oils and have integrated them into my practice. I use doTerra because it is an oil line I can relate to. Different personal chemistry responds to different oils. I am creating classes for the therapist now that teaches a smooth way to integrate specific oils into massage sessions and counsel clients on the proper use within their home.

Kirstin are there any essential oils that are good for people with ADD (adults) to help them be able to focus better? And how should they be used?

I have about 15 different aroma options most are true essential oils but 3 are perfume oils (Chai Spice, Chocolate, and French Vanilla).

My clients pick a scent based on their mood at the time and not to achieve any particular goal (at least not usually).

All of my aromas come from a local company to Portland Essential Lotions And Oils

First to answer the question.... There is NO brand when it comes to essential oils. There is no patent for essential oils.  The question would be "what essential oils do you use in your massage practice?"  

Secondly ~ Angela hinted to it.  "earn extra income"  the driving force to which Dannie is referring to.

Using essential oils in your your business and on clients (hope you have insurance) is serious business and nothing that you should be fooling around with.  People can be hurt by the oils if used by practitioners that have been educated by companies that sell oils (conflict of interest) instead of schools, whos purpose is to educate.

People trust you  ~ don't lead them down the wrong path with wrong information.  The right info is out there for you to find. Please educate yourself!

I find it so sad that so many have fallen for the hype of these MLMs.

And Angela, I've just discovered that there is an app through where you can actually search which oil is best for which problem.  In the Face book group Doterra Health one lady is looking for an oil to help her uncles' psoriasis

You have to be the judge!  As soon as I experienced the oils I knew they were pure.  A friend of mine sent me a sample pack with all the same oils I was using in my raindrop sessions and I could see the difference immediately.  I have sample packets ready at all times for my clients and they are so appreciative to learn about the oils as an alternative to otc meds.  Its a great feeling to know you can help.  And I am helping myself at the same time by using the oils and earning extra income :).  I hope this helps anyone out there that is looking for an essential oil company.  Not here to promote myself, but I would be happy to answer any questions that anyone may have.

Daniel, believe me I know where you're coming from, but until you actually experience the difference in the oils you/one could/would believe anything about any oil.  Yes Doterras' Dr. Hill did brand the CPTG because of the ultra intense testing the oils and base plant goes through.  NO other oil on the market goes through such testing.  Of course you'd have to personally experience it, the testing process yourself to understand and the only way to experience it is to be part of one of the conferences or webinars.
