[wp-review id=”2239″] If you have you started with essential oils or have been using them for a while, then you probably heard someone mention doTERRA Essential Oils. When I was just getting started with oils, I decided to buy oils based upon. BIG MISTAKE!
The quality of oils that you are using has a huge impact not only for the smell, but also on the actual purity of the oil.
In this review, I provide you with my experience of using doTERRA oils and if it is a company you should consider buying your oils from as well.
Who Is doTERRA Essential Oils?
After I began to understand some of the uses and benefits of essential oils, I wanted to learn more about the company that is producing them. I found that there are a lot of companies who claim to be offering “the best” essential oil.
But I had no idea what that meant or if there was any scientific data to back up those lofty claims. A quick Google search revealed that the doTERRA company was formed by medical professionals and that the team was instrumental in creating the CPTG, Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, standard which made me even more comfortable using the doTERRA product line.
These are scientific tests which verify that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients or harmful contaminates in any of the essential oil products.
I respect that the company is willing to spend the time and money to test their products and verify that they are pure to ensure the health and safety of their customers.
This step alone is a good indication that the doTERRA company and their products are far superior to the average essential oils on the market.
doTERRA’s Philosophy On Giving Back
In addition to learning about the high-quality standards of the doTERRA product line and their
commitment to their customers, I also learned more about the philosophy of the company.
As an organization they are committed to serving their customers as well as the world. The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation was created to provide communities around the world with the tools that they need to become self-reliant.
This is done through microcredit lending, providing access to healthcare, education, sanitation and clean water. An additional project was created to assist in the fight against child sex trafficking.
The belief is that by empowering individuals, you are giving them the ability to change their own lives. That sounds like a very worthy purpose for a business to adopt in addition to providing a quality product.
Learning about all the ways that this company is working to improve the lives of people across the globe is another reason why I am glad to be buying doTERRA products and supporting this company.
Different Uses For doTERRA Essential Oils
(Me unboxing the doTERRA AromaTouch Diffused Kit)
As I became more familiar with the doTerra line, I found that I was enjoying many of the fragrances in a diffuser, but I also discovered that I was able to use many of the products in place of the ground spices that I was accustomed to using.
I am not a great cook by any means, but I do know that when I am taking the time to prepare a dish, I want to have fresh spices to add to the flavor and interest.
So, I was often buying new jars of spices for each dish that I cooked to ensure freshness. Then the rest was being thrown away. I know it’s wasteful, but I never found a better solution, until now.
Just a few drops of essential oil and there is no need for the ground spice. This works great with the basil, rosemary, cinnamon, cilantro, clove, ginger and even peppermint. And I no longer worry about the issue of tasteless old spices ruining a favorite dish.
Another great added benefit that I have discovered is adding the peppermint and the cinnamon to hot tea. The peppermint just adds a nice flavor to the tea and reminds me of candy canes and the holidays, but the cinnamon is great for soothing a sore throat or a cough.
Again, I like the idea of a natural remedy instead of using chemical cough medication or cough drops. I have not experimented with other flavors in tea as of yet, but I plan to.
How to Become A doTERRA Wellness Advocate
After being impressed by the products and the company philosophy overall, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this organization also offers career opportunities. This team is comprised of wellness advocates who come from all different backgrounds and regions of the world.
Their common bond is the desire and willingness to share the life altering benefits of therapeutic grade essential oils with their community. Unlike other business models, this is not simply a team of sales people who are out “knocking on doors” to make a sale.
These are people who have a genuine interest and belief in the doTERRA product line. In addition, they have the training and knowledge to educate the general public about essential oils, their uses, benefits and the importance of selecting therapeutic grade essential oils.
They are advocates, spokespeople and actual users of the products who can explain to potential clients how they discovered the doTERRA community.
Joining the community of doTERRA wellness advocates is as simple as completing the enrollment form and paying the $35 enrollment fee. Or you can save the $35 and just complete the form and make your first purchase of one of the product enrollment kits.
And as with most aspects of the wellness advocate program, the choice is yours. You decide how you wish to join the program and how much you would like to participate on a long-term basis.
Community support is also another unique feature of the wellness advocate program. You are not
pushed out the door to sell your products in any way that you can manage.
You have a network of other advocates who are there to support you, answer questions and offer advice when needed.
From the first day that you are choosing a starter kit to purchase, other advocates will be there to assist you and help you to succeed.
What Education & Training Does doTERRA Provide?
In addition to having a host of other wellness advocates to assist you, you have full access to the doTERRA University.
This is the online resource that can answer just about any question that you might have about using essential oils in your own life, the best methods and ways to share your knowledge of essential oils with others and how you can turn your interest in doTERRA essential oils into a full-time business or a long term residual income.
Each of these sections is designed to have something for everyone and to present the information is a variety of ways. Because people learn differently the material is available in video, articles and also webinars.
This allows each wellness advocate to select the medium that best suits their style of learning.
And you can also select as many or as few selections as you would like. As an example of the depth of training available, the building doTERRA section is broken down into 6 main categories including: getting started, compensation, organizational structure, teaching a class, product claims and back office.
And then each of those categories is broken down further into subsections which include informational PDF forms, videos and other training guides.
Building Your Own Essential Oil Business
Overall, I am equally as impressed with the doTERRA business model as I am with the product line. Many large companies choose to market their products in a mass marketing plan where they are willing to hire anyone who wants to sell their line.
But the parent company has absolutely no investment in the sales team. If a person sells that’s great but if a person fails, that’s also ok because someone else will be selling. There is no interest in each person’s individual success.
But doTERRA has designed and created a system that wants to see each advocate succeed to the level of their greatest potential. The tools and training are readily available as are the team members who can train, teach and coach new advocates to reach whatever goals that they have set to determine their personal success.
Why I Became a doTERRA Wellness Advocate
I was fortunate enough to stumble upon doTERRA and discover all that this business has to offer in their therapeutic grade product line of essential oils as well as in a business that almost ensures its advocates success.
The products alone would have been enough for me to become a huge fan of the business. And learning about the numerous ways that the company works to better the lives of people across the globe makes me even more excited to support their business and their worthy cause for empowering others to help themselves.
They even managed to spark my entrepreneurial side as I learned more about the structure of their business and the level of support that they offer to their wellness advocates.
In this day and age of profit margin being the driver for almost all business decisions, it appears that doTERRA has chosen to follow a path less traveled, the Golden Rule.
(Do to others what you want them to do to you.) They offer a high-quality product to their customers in return for loyalty. They offer their advocates everything that they need to succeed in return for the advocates dedication to the company and its products.
And they help those in need because it’s the right thing to do. All of these characteristics make doTERRA a very unique company worth supporting.
