Megan Myers, PharmD
Megan is a pharmacist and our dōTERRA representative. Find out why she loves dōTERRA:
She started using essential oils as a hobby and quickly realized they were far more than an alternative to incense. She was excited to discover textbooks that described how they worked and quickly dived into the science. Because most oils are labeled as “Generally Recognized As Safe” (GRAS) by the FDA it was not surprising that there are few clinical trials in the literature, since the goal of clinical trials is to assess safety & efficacy.
Due to the lack of studies, Megan had to make an educated guess on how well oils worked based on pharmacology. Since the chemistry and mechanisms of action made sense, in theory, these oils COULD work. Finally Megan tried them, knowing they were unlikely to cause harm. After experiencing physical and emotional benefits she was sold on incorporating oils into my life.
Ultimately, after finally understanding essential oils, she felt compelled to educate the public based on her understanding of chemistry, pharmacology, health conditions and potential interactions with concurrent medications. She sought a company with a high-quality product aligned with her research on oils and her professional values.
dōTERRA has done all of those things. She was particularly impressed by dōTERRA’s dedication to quality and transparency. She is very excited to support the team at Breathe. as they incorporate dōTERRA essential oils into their practice
