As a therapist, life coach and doTERRA Wellness Advocate, I love incorporating doTERRA essential oils into my private practice, wellness retreats and workshops.
Essential oils promote healthy living and can be used in many ways such as aromatic diffusion, topical application, and dietary consumption.
doTERRA Essential Oils
All about doTERRA
Here are just a few examples of how these amazing essential oils can be used:
Known to support healthy cellular function. When inhaled or diffused, Frankincense promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness.
Rub Frankincense on your hands after a long day of gardening for a warming and soothing effect.
Helps reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and age spots.
Can be applied to the bottoms of feet to promote feelings of relaxation and to balance mood.
Melaleuca (Tea Tree)
Best known for its purifying properties.
For occasional skin irritations, apply 1–2 drops of Melaleuca essential oil onto affected area.
Combine 1–2 drops with your facial cleanser for added cleansing properties, or apply to skin after shaving.
Apply to fingernails and toenails after showering to purify and keeps nails looking healthy.
Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces to protect against environmental threats.
The smartest, most economical way to purchase essential oils is to choose a starter kit that fits your budget and needs, which allows you to purchase any future products at wholesale prices. The starter kits I recommend include the most popular oils for common issues that arise within the home. They also offer significant cost savings and some include a diffuser, the easiest and most effective way to experience the oils.
My TOP REASONS for choosing doTERRA as my essential oils provider:
QUALITY of the products. All organic. No adulteration. Ever. Period, the end!
INTEGRITY of the owners. I could hang out with these people. They are that cool.
HUMANITARIAN aspect of the company. doTERRA improves lives. All over. Everyday.
DEBT FREE privately held BILLION dollar company...in 8 short years! Who can argue with that?
NOW ARE YOU READY?
HOW DO I LEARN HOW TO USE THE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Support and guidance is essential to ensure success when making any lifestyle change. My colleagues and I have teamed up to create a valuable training resource so we can teach you how to safely and confidently use the essential oils you have purchased. We have put together a 10 day self guided virtual training program that we run once a month. Once you receive your oils, you will receive an invitation to join our next training program. There are no additional fees for this service; we just want you to learn and feel confident in knowing how and what to use your oils for. We will cover topics such as Stress and Mood Management; Enjoying Better Sleep; Having More Energy; Controlling Your Weight; Health Supportive Cooking with Essential Oils; and Creating Non Toxic Household Cleaners Using Essential Oils. After you have purchased your kit, you will receive a welcome email from me that will include a link to access this valuable resource. You will also be invited into a private Facebook group called Minnows, which allows you to connect with other like minded people who are using essential oils for their health concerns. It's a great place to have your usage questions answered.
WHAT SHOULD I BUY?
doTERRA has put together some great starter kits, or you can choose from one of my custom collections which have targeted selections for specific health concerns. I recommend choosing a kit you can comfortably afford; you can always add more oils to your collection later by purchasing them through the Loyalty Rewards Program. Here are my 3 favorite doTERRA kits to choose from.
The Natural Solutions Kit
This is the kit I initially purchased when I enrolled with doTERRA and I absolutely love it! I knew I was making a lifestyle change and wanted to invest in a kit that offered a wider variety of oils than the smaller starter kits. It includes some of the blends that you won't get in the smaller kits like Balance, InTune, Serenity and Clary Calm, plus the Deep Blue Rub, all of which get nearly daily use in my life! I also prefer the Aroma Lite diffuser, over the diffuser that comes with the Home Essentials kit since it runs for up to 8 hours (perfect for a restful night's sleep) as opposed to 4.
Home Essentials Kit
This kit is currently our best selling kit, since it contains the 10 most frequently used essential oils for issues that arise in the common household. There are oils to support and strengthen your immune system; reduce stress and anxiety; help you sleep better; make non toxic household cleaners; and improve your digestion. This kit comes with a FREE diffuser, the easiest and most effective way to experience the oils.
Family Essentials Kit
This kit is a great choice if your budget is limited or you just want to dip your toes in the water. It contains the same 10 most frequently used essential oils, but in smaller size bottles (5ml instead of 15ml). You also receive Peppermint Beadlets and OnGuard Beadlets with the kit, which are perfect for bringing on the go.
When you purchase a doTERRA kit or Custom Collection, you can become a Wholesale Customer, meaning you receive wholesale pricing on all future orders (25% off of retail), or you can become a Wellness Advocate, where you can earn commissions by when you share essential oils with others. By choosing a doTERRA starter kit, the wholesale membership fee of $35 is waived. The starter kits I recommend contain the most popular oils as well as a diffuser, the easiest and most effective way to experience the oils. (When you purchase one of the Custom Collections, the $35 fee is already incorporated into the package price).
IS THERE A MONTHLY MINIMUM PURCHASE?
No, there are no monthly minimums. They are rewards and incentives given to members who purchase product monthly in our Loyalty Rewards Program, but this is not an obligation.
WHAT IS THE LOYALTY REWARDS PROGRAM?
The Loyalty Rewards Program is quite simply the smartest way to shop. The company rewards its members for loyalty. If you order something each month, you accumulate points. These points can be cashed in for free product. The percentage you earn ranges from 10% to 30% of what you are spending based on two things, how long you have been a member and how big of a kit you initially purchase. Say for example you start with a small kit (The Home Essentials). You would earn 10% back in points towards free product. After you’ve been with the company for 13 months, that percentage climbs to 30%. I typically bank my points and then cash them in for the products that I consider to be a treat to myself. It’s a wonderful program that makes shopping for your natural products very cost effective. I now buy everything for my personal care needs through doTERRA… my skin care, shampoo and conditioner, soaps, household cleaners, toothpaste, protein shakes, and supplements. (and Christmas and birthday gifts as well!)
