DoTERRA Essential Oils-Is It the Business For You?

doTERRA- Is it the business for you?

Why you should be considering doTERRA as a business opportunity?

So you are obviously interested in essential oils, have used them with success, want a side hustle you can start from home or have heard the buzz around them, and want more information.

In general, people are impacted upon by unhealthy practices e.g. bad food choices, and environmental issues and are seeking more natural, holistic solutions outside of the more traditional pharmaceutical solutions. There is a trust in the old ways and a desire to work on wellness so it supports our journey to ultimate health.

Health is not just about going to a doctor or a pharmacy but it is about making daily choices that impact upon our overall wellness.

So you see, there is a huge niche out there looking for solutions and doTERRA is able to support those people looking for solutions to everything from skin care, hair care, dental care, general wellness, healing, and natural cleaning solutions for the home. 

Is a doTERRA business a good fit for you?

  • Do you have the desire to have a more natural, chemical free lifestyle for you and your family?

  • Are you willing to continue learning about essential oils and support other people learning about them?

  • Are you willing to share your ideas and experiences with others? An example of this- the other night, my partner came home limping so I used Ice Blue on his heel etc. I passed this experience on to my groups( with more explanation, of course). SIMPLE AS THAT!

  • Do you like helping others?

  • If you already have a strong belief and passion for essential oils, are you willing to share your belief and passion?

  • Do you wish to work with products that are pure, high quality, therapeutic grade?

  • Do you wish to work with an ethical, generous company that provides you with great products at wholesale prices plus great incentives that help you get products free or much cheaper?

  • Do you wish to work with a company that has a passion for helping the communities from whom they source the products? DoTERRA leaves a huge imprint on communities by providing ethical employment, services, training and education in third world communities.

  • Would you like to work from home? Your sponsor can demonstrate a workshop, if you choose to have a one on one session with a client, or a small group of 3-4. It is not cumbersome, nor is a party expected as we don't wish clients to be out of pocket. 
  • Or you can do most, if not all, of your work online so your clients order online and it is shipped directly to them. You just see your commission and accumulated points at the end of the month and you can choose to buy or put it in your bank.

DoTERRA provides you with a beautiful website that is a high quality website. It is up to you whether or not you have a blog, in addition to your doTERRA site.

DoTERRA Essential Oils-Is It the Right Business For You?

How do you market doTERRA products?

You try to share your information every day- Facebook has doTERRA groups and you will automatically be invited to your sponsor's group, if you decide to join as a Wellness Advocate (not necessarily a sales rep).

You can build your own Facebook Page or group and put up some ads with your links, or just share your 'oily' thoughts.

You can share your links through other Social media. I do a lot on Social Media and am very willing to help you with the what's and how's of Social media advertising. I love graphic design and can help you a lot with your ads.

You can carry your business cards around with you and hand them out when an opportunity arises, while you are out of the house.

You can carry a small essential oils pack in your bag. There are different sizes- the smallest bags carry 6 or 8 products, and grab the opportunity to get them out and show others, when you are out and about.

OK I'm in! How do I get started? (Read my last post and find out what motivated me to jump in and start a doTERRA business)

To start a business does not require any payment as such but all sales representatives are Wellness Advocates but not all Wellness Advocates are Sales Representatives!

I'll explain:

When you buy from doTERRA, you can be a retail customer and pay full price.

You can pay $35 and become a Wellness Advocate which entitles you to 25% (wholesale price) of all products, plus points for products bought by you and your customers. This builds very quickly and enables you to get lots of free products.

For instance, for Peppermint, a retail customer would pay $34 while a Wellness Advocate pays $25.50 and 25 points towards another product.

I have another post you may like to read, with more background to this.

My daughter had no intention of doing it as a business but she is such a good wellness advocate that people are signing up with her. You know why???????

Because the products sell themselves! And if you have the passion and belief in the essential oils that just adds to your success.

After becoming a Wellness Advocate, you get a beautiful website and no other outlay. You can buy products, as you feel inclined.

If you are interested or would like to ask more questions, just click this link and it will take you to my doTERRA website and you can have a look around the website and there is a message box on the Home Page, if you would like a private message.

Different Ways to Use Essential Oils-Part 2.

Different Ways to Use Essential Oils-Part 2.

Do you need to know about the different ways to use essential oils? Definitely, a big YES! As time goes on, knowledge changes so we need to keep up with the latest knowledge if we are going to get the maximum benefit from our oils.

Later, in this post, I will discuss how you can start taking responsibility for your wellness.

When I first came upon essential oils, it was when my older children were teenagers and, later, as a representative for Le Reve. (preceding post Part 1) At that time, essential oils were starting to appear in large department stores and oil burners were flying out the stores' doors.

My first bottle of essential oil was Rosemary and that was 21 years ago, for the princely sum of $37 at Myer. We had quite a collection of oil burners at home. So that's what I used and, in all honesty, the effects were immediately noticeable on me.

Later, with Le Reve at my fingertips, I had quite a collection of oils in my pretty box.

When I worked in a particularly stressful environment, I would come home and use my relaxing oils- often geranium, rose and lavender- and have a power nap before making dinner. It was so refreshing as I could have a short but deep, rejuvenating nap.

Since those days, the knowledge has changed. I signed up with doTERRA as one of my daughters suffers from a chronic condition, and she was seeking complimentary ways of enhancing her wellness.

She made up a mixture of oils blended with coconut oil for my never-ending throat tickle and with a half teaspoon of this mixture, I had relief for the rest of the afternoon and night.

That was the winning point for me!

How have the ways of using essential oils changed?

When I originally started using essential oils, I always used an oil burner. Today, the word is that, when you burn the oils, you are killing their potency and therefore not getting the full benefits of the essential oils.

So I defer to this knowledge and, although I did feel the effects of the essential oils using a burner, I want to get the full effect of the oil by using the different methods now advocated.

Different Ways of using your essential oils:

  1. Aromatic Way- inhaling or using a diffuser to support your airways and affect your mood.
I use the doTERRA diffuser and it has cool vapour so it does not affect the potency of the oils.

I have a myriad of doTERRA recipes for making different concoctions as to what I want to inhale or diffuse.

As you become more knowledgeable about the oils, you start to make up your own recipes and many doTERRA groups share their experiences and recipes- like a devoted club of members helping each other out.

  1. Topically-apply to the bottoms of the feet or specific areas of the body.
Did you know that if you massage essential oils into the feet, it only takes 20 seconds to filter into your body. It is also a safe method to use with children and babies, when diluted in the correct amounts.

For more information, on correct amounts, you can visit my pinterest essential oils board

  1. Drop under the tongue, or put the oil into a gel cap, or in water to support digestion. DoTERRA is 100% pure and is certified as safe to ingest. Each batch can be traced to its source. If you are not using doTERRA, don't ingest unless the product has a guarantee as to its safety.

Safety message for you- ALWAYS make sure the essential oil you are using is a pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil. It must be guaranteed pure, natural, and free of synthetic compounds and contaminants.

Using essential oils can be life changing but profoundly simple.

Working with someone who has used essential oils before helps you have a more beneficial and enjoyable experience. I had this experience with my daughter and another Wellness advocate who has been using doTERRA oils for a few years.

Both visited me, and we had a very enjoyable afternoon learning all about essential oils, looking through the books and pamphlets and asking about a wellness product that both my partner and I are purchasing in our next order.

My partner has had 2 battles with cancer so he was very interested in learning all about the products to improve his immune system and increase vitality.

This is the same principle of how essential oils were used in the passage of time as generations passed their knowledge down to their families.

I love essential oils and my partner and I have a lavender and coconut oil foot massage each night, and I also rub it 2-3 times a day into my eczema on my ankle, which is the result of an extreme allergic response to being bitten 16 years ago by sandflies plus a chemical burn from harsh steroid cream prescribed by a doctor.

I use Whisper (new product)  as my perfume and my partner just keeps smelling me- we both love it!

How to take responsibility for your wellness with essential oils?

I joined as a WellnessAdvocate. It is not a fancy, shmancy name for getting you into the business. It just means that you are interested in learning more about essential oils and natural ways of caring for yourself and your family from doTERRA literature, websites, and from online groups on Facebook.

I decided to pay $35 and get 25% of all products plus being allocated points value for each product I buy. Believe me, doTERRA is VERY generous in this regard and the points add up very quickly and, before you know it, it's time for you to choose a FREE product.

Why is it worth paying the $35?


Well, 25% is an extremely generous discount as, for example, I could pay $34 for peppermint oil or I could choose to pay $25. The maths. makes it an easy decision.
More maths.- 21 years ago, I bought a bottle of Rosemary for $37. I could pay doTERRA's price of $28.68 as a retail customer or, as a Wellness Advocate, pay $21.50.

My daughter is absolutely delighted as she said she can't believe all the FREE products they parcel out to her because of the Points Value she receives for purchases- she says she keeps on getting! The points value of what you buy entitles you to further percentages off the products.


The sharing of mutual experiences and a place to go where you can ask questions means you are constantly learning.

If you buy from a shop, you walk out with the product and a few words from the staff, who may or may not know much about the many different uses and applications of the oil purchased, or you go home and do some research yourself.

But the chances are that you will probably not learn the range of uses and different applications that are possible with essential oils.


Being a wellness advocate is not about being pressured to start your own business.

It is about being able to afford pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils through their generous wholesale prices and learning and sharing experiences in the doTERRA community (if you want).

You will automatically be invited to a doTERRA community online. How much you contribute is totally up to you. The opportunity is there if you wish to extend the offer to others in the community.

Best Ways To Use Essential Oils

Best Ways to Use Essential Oils

The basic building blocks of aromatherapy are essential oils.

My first encounter with aromatherapy was when one of my daughters was doing VCE and I bought Rosemary oil to aid her studying.  At the same time, I was burning the candle at both ends and took time off as I was suffering from chronic fatigue.

It was so debilitating that I could just sleep most of the day and still feel exhausted. I would wash the breakfast dishes and could hardly get through the chore without crashing on the couch for an hour of sleep. 

One day, I decided to burn some rosemary oil as I loved experimenting with different scents. However, this was the first time I used a high-quality essential oil.

At this time, I had chronic fatigue for two months and thought there was a long road to recovery (most probably longer but this was 2 months I did not work). 

As the oil burnt, I rested on the couch after doing the dishes. As I lay resting, my eyes literally popped open and I just felt good!

Previously, it was an effort to open my eyes, whereas now I felt so good that I went outside and gardened for an hour. This was an incredible feat for me and I still felt great when I came inside. No exhaustion or muscle aches and pains. 

So essential oils became a part of our family life and my daughters are also great advocates for essential oils. 

 They have substituted all laundry, cleaning, health and beauty routines and products, as much as possible, with products based on essential oils. 

 I would often burn combinations of lavender, rose, bergamot and be asleep within ten minutes. Why would anyone not try essential oils to enhance their overall health?

How Essential Oils Can Improve Your Life- Practical Uses

In the Home

Essential Oils can be used as substitutes for harsh and unhealthy chemicals used in the home. They can be combined with more natural sources, such as baking soda, water, vinegar to make great household products.

 My mum was a harsh chemical addict and I grew up with a cupboard full of these products to use throughout the house. However, I noticed that these products burnt my eyes and, literally, took my breath away.  

So we are making healthy changes, such as using natural products, like vinegar and essential oils for cleaning, disinfecting and deterring those pesky bugs that love to board with you.

Did you know that using lemon or peppermint oil deters bugs, spiders, and even mice? They hate it!  

Did you know that you can make a carpet deodorizer using your favourite oils?

If you are having a party, use lemon or lime to rev up the atmosphere.

Do you want a bug free, beautifully scented linen cupboard?

These are just some of the things you can achieve with the use of essential oils. 

More to come about using essential oils in the home.

Personal Use

Last year, I bought a beautiful essential oil moisturiser from a chemist. It was so good, I bought it for my elderly mother who was not able to use moisturisers anymore, as her eyes kept tearing after use of the cream.

It contained honey and rose oil and, although I am older now, it made my skin glow and really did give my skin a more youthful appearance. 

Did you know that Lavender oil is good for dry skin while lemon oil is good for oily skin?

Did you know that you can make body sprays and perfumes using essential oils?

The reason I have asked these questions is to open your mind to the endless possibilities of using essential oils and replace the methods we now take for granted ie. buying household products off the supermarket shelves without thinking about other simple solutions that are healthier.

What are 5 Health Habits You Can't Live Without?

What are 5 Health Habits You Can't Live Without?

Many chronic diseases are caused by lifestyle issues.

People tend not to exercise as much as they should, they allow themselves to become overweight, and they eat unhealthy foods that lead to things like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and strokes.

The problem with lifestyle issues is that they are difficult to turn around. Many people try to change their lifestyle all at once, which is extremely difficult to accomplish.

 As a result, they often give up all of their healthy habits and resort to the usual negative health habits that they had been doing before they attempted a healthy lifestyle. 

Sometimes it just takes a few days or a few weeks of trying to live healthy before the individual becomes overwhelmed and stops living healthy. 

They stop exercising and go back to eating processed foods and junk foods.

This is why it is better to change your health habits one habit at a time so that you don’t become overwhelmed and stop trying to be healthy altogether. 

Most weight loss programs work if they are done carefully and don’t deprive the individual too much. The same is true of exercise programs.

If you choose an exercise that you really enjoy or increase your physical activity more gradually, you can usually stick to the program so that you don’t become discouraged and quit exercising altogether.

The trick to healthy living is to begin gradually.

Don’t try any trendy diet or fitness fad. If you try these things with gusto, you are likely to respond negatively and you won’t stick with the programs. 

There are a few simple things you can do to live a happier and healthier life. 

Start with just these 5 changes in health habits:

1.     Try eating one healthy meal a day.

Even if you eat processed foods most of the time, if you try to eat just one healthy food each day, you will feed your body with good nutrition and healthy proteins.

Healthy meals consist of mainly fruits and vegetables, supplemented with whole grain products, and lean meats.

It doesn’t matter how much you eat because, if the food is healthy for you, it won’t usually contain a lot of calories and won’t cause weight gain as can be seen when you eat junk foods or highly processed foods.
Even so, you should try to watch your portion sizes. Protein is calorie dense so keep your meat portions the size of your palm.

I tutor young students each Saturday morning and they are expected to do a short mini-test in each of their subjects each week.

So I tell them that they need to eat a carbohydrate to wake their body's engine up in the morning, and a protein to wake their brain up and be ready for the test.

I found the times I ate my meals had a great impact on my cravings and energy levels. I used to have afternoon cravings and, as I got older and became more in tune with my body, I realised that the less I ate earlier in the day, the worse my afternoon and evening cravings were.

As I ate breakfast around 6.30-7 am, I decided to have my lunch at morning break, weaned myself off endless cups of coffee and replaced it with a large glass of water.

I ate my snacks for lunch and I did not have hunger cravings after this as I felt full all day long. I started not even wanting to eat my fruit until after work, on my way home. I also started to cook slightly more at night so I would take this for lunch, instead of sandwiches.

After a couple of years, people who had remarked on this habit changed from sandwiches daily to “left-overs”, as well.

2.     Drink a glass of water before each meal.

Water is perhaps the best liquid you can drink.

When you decide to drink a glass of water before meals, (an 8-ounce glass is enough), you will feel fuller before eating, and you won’t eat as much at the meal that follows a drink of water.

If you like, you can squeeze some lemon or lime into the water. I found that adding water or lime to my water decreased my appetite and I found it more refreshing. It is great as part of a weight loss program too.

Our bodies can give us signals that are hard to read, in terms of hunger and thirst. We may often be thirsty and we think it is a signal that we want to eat. This is another benefit of drinking water regularly throughout the day.

3.     Be active during lunch. 

    Even if you are given a half-hour to eat, it usually doesn’t take that long to eat your meals. Try eating your meals and then take some time to exercise. You don’t have to work out excessively but you should be able to take a brisk walk.

Not only will this energize you but also it will help burn off the calories you just ate and will aid in the digestive process.

It really doesn’t matter what type of exercise you do as long as you choose something reasonable that will help you feel better after eating your lunch.

Exercising during lunch also helps decrease the stress of your job and will make the rest of your day go easier. It also takes the focus off food and moves you away from the table.

     If you are at home, you can do a spot of gardening, walk the dog or do some shopping.

    4.     Try a Meal Replacement Bar. 
    This involves eating a healthy protein bar as a snack instead of junk foods. Most meal replacement bars contain a lot of good nutrition and fibre.

They are also not as calorie-rich as you would think. They help stave off hunger pangs that are so typical of the mid-afternoon time.

Keep a stash of these protein bars in your desk at work or in your purse or brief case so you can grab one whenever you feel hungry.

It will keep you from going to the vending machines and eating poor food choices. Try eating a meal replacement bar that is high in fibre and that has at least 10 to 15 grams of protein per bar.

If you are going to eat something, always try to make it the healthier choice- or the lesser of two evils, if your choices are limited!

5.     Exercise regularly.

You can keep it simple and walk for half an hour 3 times a week initially.

I found that when a walked twice a day and ate anything I wanted,  I consistently lost 3 kilos in a fortnight, with a pleasing corresponding loss of inches.

An inspiring walk for me was to meet up with a walkers group every Saturday morning to walk around the beautiful Botanical Gardens early in the morning when the scent of the gardens wafted from the gardens.

Twice around the gardens was 8 kilometres and it is amazing how quickly it goes when you are part of a group.

If you have a gym membership, try going there at least 3-4 times per week. Choose an activity you enjoy and make the most of it for at least a half hour per session.

This will help energize you, may build muscle mass, and will help you lose weight by burning off excess calories. 

If you are interested in more self-care strategies, you will be interested in these strategies. I use these to feel better, get rid of headaches, or become alert on the way to work or when I need to be focused.
