What the heck are essential oils and why do I need them?
That's the question I asked myself four years ago as I searched the internet for solutions to my health needs.
I'm not sure you could've found someone on the planet who was less interested in natural health than me. For most of my life I've just wanted to be able to pop a pill and be done with it. What I didn't realize was that by the time I was 35 years old, I would feel completely hindered by my health while trying desperately to deal with two very hard-to-handle boys who had health issues of their own. All the meds I was on to help correct my chronic health issues (nothing life threatening, just junk that wasn't going away) worked to control what was ailing me, but a few months in I found myself feeling worse from the side-effects of the meds than I did from the health issues themselves. I knew something had to change.
And so began my pursuit of alternative options.
Every single search brought me the same two words...two words I had never heard before: Essential Oils. So I did what any normal girl living in our day and age does when she needs to know the scoop!
I went to Facebook.
150 comments later I was talking to a blogging friend who patiently told me about the way essential oils had transformed her life. I decided to take the plunge and try something completely different than what I'd tried before. It's amazing what stress in your life will move you toward. It's my experience that stress either makes you stuck, or moves you forward. I'm so grateful I moved forward with essential oils!
I'm truly not the same mom I was four years ago.
My children don’t ask for OTC methods of dealing with the everyday things of life. They ask for essential oils. As a mom, I know that I’ve set them up for an entirely different kind of life…one that will allow them to go where God leads unhindered by health…and THAT makes me all kinds of happy!
So what are essential oils?
I took the box, ran upstairs, and closed the door to my son’s bedroom so I wouldn’t be interrupted.
Slowly, I opened the lid to my first box of doTERRA essential oils, took a deep breath, and thought to myself, “I wonder if I’m holding a miracle?”
Turns out, I was.
The bottles I held in my hands had literally thousands of everyday, practical uses to help support me and my family.
Who knew that ten small bottles would change my life?
Essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health care practices. Our entire medical system is built on a foundation of the usefulness of plants. Essential oils offer support for our bodies in a safe, effective way. And best of all? I can safely and thoughtfully use them on my children without having to worry about hurting them.
I call that a miracle!
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination.
How do I use them?

How Do I Get Started?
Opening a wholesale account with doTERRA is easy to do, and there are literally no risks involved.
It’s just like having a Sam’s Club or Costco membership. You pay a small fee up front ($35), and then can order what you want, when you want it, at a 25% discount...every single time.
As a doTERRA customer, there is no monthly quota, no pressure to sell anything, and no minimum order you need to make to stay active. At the end of each year (from when you started), you’ll pay a small amount to renew your account ($25) and be sent a bottle of peppermint oil in return. Easy peasy.
doTERRA even makes it very easy to get started by offering multiple kits at a seriously discounted price!
The starter kits are packed with the most popular, most versatile essential oils from doTERRA, and are really the best way to fund your new healthy habit ;)
Start with a "bundle" of the most popular oils-- you'll get a deeper discount and your wholesale membership will be free!
