This wheel is divided between two sides: monoterpenes (oils that have a 10 carbon backbone) and sesquiterpenes (oils that have a 15 carbon backbone). The oils are further organised by functional group with the top one or two chemical constituents listed under each oil. Finally, the oils are grouped according to their shared key properties.
The shared key properties provide a starting point for understanding how to use the oils. The combination of these different groupings enables individuals to begin to understand the characteristics and properties of dōTERRA’s amazing essential oils.
