Have you ever wished you knew more about essential oils but don't even know where to start?
That's how I used to feel. I knew that oils could assist our family with our health & wellness...but it just seemed like so much to learn! I would search and search online for information I could trust and then not even get the results I wanted.
A friend of mine had been talking about dōTERRA oils online a lot and I finally called her up and said "what's up with these?!" Little did I know how much the course of our life shifted that DAY!
I got my starter kit and I.WAS.HOOKED. These oils were like none I had tried before. They were super potent and pure...and THEY WORKED. Up until this point...I didn't know that there was a huge difference in quality with essential oils. There is no governing body saying what companies can and cannot include in the bottle with the oils...so there is a lot of adulteration and mixing with synthetics / additives.
Think of it like this. You can get your taco from Taco Bell or you can go out to your garden and choose tomatoes and lettuce and onions...fresh from the source. One is wildly more clean and wonderful without all the additives. Same thing with oils.
- dōTERRA tests each batch of oils 7 different ways.
- Their harvesting practices are strict and controlled.
- They source their oils from around the world in their environment where each plant grows the best and they only harvest when the timing is perfect.
- They are a step above organic and they maintain an internal standard of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade with no fillers, artificial ingredients, chemical substitutes or contaminants.
These oils are a gift from the earth...in fact, that's exactly what the word dōTERRA means! The plants are beautifully designed to support all of our body's processes. We started to use these oils more and more and every day something would come up and we'd say "...is there an oil for that?". And there always was.
We started using the oils more and more...as part of our daily life. That's really when we starting to see amazing shifts in our health...and in the health of those around us. Matt has experienced occasional digestive discomfort for as long as I can remember. And after he ate one night, I had him try one of the oil blends called DigestZen®.
Almost immediately, his stomach was soothed! We thought it was a fluke...but we tried it again the next time it happened and had the same results every time. I started telling everyone I knew about this oil!
Another product that we quickly fell in love with was the Lifelong Vitality Pack...which is dōTERRA's #1 selling product. Now...I had taken multi-vitamins before but it was mostly just to check off a box on my "how to be healthy" mental checklist. It wasn't until I tried these that I saw a huge difference in my overall emotional stability, the depth of my sleep, and my energy levels throughout the day. I also noticed that small aches and pains that had occasionally popped up had disappeared as well!
Matt noticed these things in me...and said "Hey! Maybe I should take them too!". The first thing he noticed is a general "evenness" in his temper. The kids can be crazy and loud and rambunctious and it doesn't even phase him. Things that used to get him upset...just don't any more.
We will never be without them!

dōTERRA is a science and education focused company that takes great care in educating it's users and distributors. I was learning more and more and then sharing it with others. As I learned more...I realized the impact that these oils could have on those around me.
I also learned that dōTERRA has a heart for people. And especially a heart for those producing their oils. They are committed to sourcing these oils sustainably and paying fairly for the harvest.
Click the video below to hear the story of how we produce our vetiver oil...and how we give back to the farmers an the community in the process through co-impact sourcing. The work that they are doing around the world is SO INSPIRING. I am so thrilled to have partnered with a company that truly cares.
I have fallen in love over and over with dōTERRA over the past 5 years and I just HAVE to tell others about the good that is happening within this company. So many changed lives...the growers, the children, the people using the oils, and our Tribe...who have dreams coming true right and left.
So...what the next step?
