Why doTERRA!

When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. 

Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.  

While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques. 

The most common method of extracting essential oils is a low-heat steam distillation process. In this process, pressurized steam is circulated through plant material. The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected. To ensure the highest quality oil extract with the correct chemical composition, the temperature and pressure must be closely monitored. Too little heat or pressure and the oil will not release; too much, and the oil’s composition and potency will be affected. 

Three Secrets for Using Essential Oils

  • A little goes a long way—this rule applies whether you use the oils internally, aromatically, or internally (and yes, I use all three methods)een shown to be counterfeits.
  • You can use oils in the garden or barnyard too. Fly sprays, pest control sprays, calming critters, cleansing surfaces, shall I go on?
  • If you’re buying cheap oils from the healthfood store or on Amazon, you’re likely not getting what you think you are. Adulteration and contamination are rampant in cheap healthfood store oils, and many “brandname” Amazon products have been shown to be counterfeits.

What is an Essential Oil?

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. 

But what exactly is a volatile aromatic compound? In short, these compounds are small organic molecules that tend to change quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. They are called volatile because they change state quickly. When you first open a bottle of essential oil, you instantly notice that the aroma is potent and you can smell it typically even from some distance. The physical and chemical properties of the volatile aromatic compounds that compose essential oils allow them to quickly move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for applications inclusion in aromatherapy – using these compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications. The type of volatile aromatic compounds present in an essential oil determines both the oil’s aroma and the benefits it offers. 

Over 3,000 varieties of volatile aromatic compounds have been identified to date. The nature of an essential oil varies from plant to plant, within botanical families, and from species to species. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits. 

Even with pure essential oils the composition of the oil can vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather, making every step of the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil product. 

Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in complex essential oil blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Want to learn how to use essential oils?

Maple Syrup

Grade B Maple Syrup is a darker color with a strong maple flavor. Grade B Maple Syrup is a preferred “cooking” syrup because it retains the maple flavor well. Grade B can be used as a table syrup as well, but it’s maple flavor often overpowers the taste of sweetness found in the Grade A syrups

What will I get in my 1/2 hog order?
There will be some variation depending on your discussion with the butcher and your preferences, so below is a rough idea:
Pounds — Item
13 — Pork chops 1″
3 — Spare Ribs
9 — Ground Breakfast, Italian, or German meat in 1 lb packages
15 — Fresh Ham or brined/smoked
8 — Bacon
10 — Shoulder Roast
4 — Butt Pork Roast
5 — Stew Bones – excellent for soups and stews 
8 — Fat
75 — Total pounds of cuts in the freezer. This is a rough idea of what you get. Price does not include processing. Processing changes with the amount you would like cured or smoked. Our prices are higher due to the type of feed we give them. It takes them longer to grow and we give them a good amount of space to run.
