The doTERRA Oil Chemistry Wheel is a tool designed to help individuals better understand the chemistry behind essential oils. In understanding the basic chemistry of each oil, individuals can more fully understand when and how to use the oils to achieve a desired benefit.

The doTERRA Oil Chemistry Handbook is a reference that will give you the information and the intellectual tools you need in order to understand how to use essential oils effectively based on their chemical properties. By understanding the fundamentals of oil chemistry, you can begin to classify oils by their chemical properties. This will help you learn which oils might have applications in different daily life contexts and how they work.

Volatility- Essential oils are unique and elegantly functional because they contain a mixture of highly volatile components.

Synergy- Another key to essential oil chemistry lies in the delicate balance of components. A drop of essential oil is like a snapshot of the plant’s unique makeup and environment.

Adaptiveness- Humans evolved with plants. Our physical makeup is based on the same organic molecules. We’re subject to similar environmental stressors.
