Awhile ago, I became very interested in learning more about essential oils. I had purchased them on and off over the years, but really didn’t know how to use them properly. In fact, I had no idea they could be used therapeutically. I puchased health-food store brands, for things like cleaning and disinfecting, and occasionally for adding scent to things.
My family has been striving for natural health and wellness for a number of years. We eat whole, unprocessed foods, follow a Paleo diet to manage my daughter’s Asperger’s Syndrome, and mine and my children’s Celiac Disease. We use only natural cleaners and personal care products. We avoid prescription and over-the-counter medications whenever possible. We had been doing very well, and making great progress with our health. However, I felt like something was missing. There were times when someone had the sniffles, or a scrape, or overall just didn’t feel well, and I really didn’t have anything to reach for in those situations. I liked the idea of having something simple, convenient, and natural available in times like these. I also became interested in making more of our personal care products, such as toothpaste, shampoo, face and body lotions, etc. I knew that if my children would be using these, that I wanted to make sure I was using the purest ingredients, devoid of any fillers or cheaply sourced oils. In short, I was searching for the world’s best quality essential oils.
I began to do my homework. I scoured the internet for weeks; looking for personal testimonials, and assurances on quality of various brands. Over and over, dōTERRA kept popping up. There were other brands that came up too, but I really felt drawn to dōTERRA. I loved their overall philosophy and approach, that they sourced their plants from farms all over the world in their native habitats, that the oils themselves undergo 7 levels of testing to assure absolutely purity. I liked that although they had a very good selection of oils and blends, that the selection wasn’t SO huge that I would feel overwhelmed and not know where to begin. I also loved that by enrolling under a Wellness Advocate, I had access to support and guidance on my journey that I wouldn’t get if I purchased essential oils off a shelf.
Saving Money by Redirecting your Spending
As I mentioned earlier, one of the reasons I began my quest for finding the best quality essential oils, was so that I could begin making my own products. Having these oils on hand means that I always have the ingredients readily available for anything I might need to make. I can whip up a batch of cleaning supplies, or body lotion, or bug spray, or sunscreen, just by keeping a few simple ingredients on hand, plus my essential oils. They have also replaced our entire first aid kit. Essential oils cost just pennies per drop – and most often, a drop is all you need. I am no longer spending money at the grocery store or the drug store for these items, I’ve simply replaced them all with essential oils. It’s so much simpler, saves me time, and saves a ton of money. I also love that I can order online and they show up on my doorstep. As a busy mom, I love this convenience.
Beginning Your Essential Oil Journey
If you are ready to get started on your own essential oil journey, the absolute best way is to open your own wholesale account. In doing so, you will receive 25% off all of your oil purchases! Your oils will also get delivered straight to your door – and if you’re a busy mom like me, I know how much you’ll appreciate that!
Opening your own wholesale account does not commit you to anything – it simply works like a Costco membership! You can order as much or as little as you’d like, whenever you like. There are absolutely no minimum orders. If you wish to renew your membership at the end of your year, it costs $30, and dōTERRA will send you a free bottle of peppermint as a thank-you!
If you find yourself ordering on a regular basis and want to be rewarded for that, you can always opt into dōTERRA’s FREE Loyalty Rewards program. If you order monthly through this program, you will receive a percentage of your orders back in product credit, as well as get all your shipping cost back in points. Points are roughly equivalent to dollars, which you can then cash in for free product. This program is totally optional and free, and you can opt out at any time. This is how I order all of my oils, and I have literally cashed in thousands of dollars worth of free essential oils. This program has saved my family SO much money, because I get my essential oils at 25% off, plus receive 30% of my orders back in product credit (which is where you will be after a year), so I basically get all my oils at 55% off. PLUS I participate in dōTERRA’s Product of the Month club, where I get a free oil every month.
