Why I've Chosen dōTERRA as a Business
Over the past ten years I have had so many jobs I’ve lost count. All the while I’ve been putting sweat equity into my real work, my vocation as an artist and a teacher. I am so proud of the hard work I’ve put in, and I’ve finally found some success. But even with great success, there is still a financial glass ceiling with teaching and creating art for sale. There are only so many hours in a day.
In 2016, I finally reached a point where I was able to save a little money now and then. Not much, but a little. Some months are better than others. If I’m honest, my financial future looks pretty bleak sometimes. I work really hard, and I would love to be able to thrive financially, be much more philanthropic, be able to travel often to see my children and grandchildren overseas. I’d love to enjoy my life more comfortably, and give more freely.
dōTERRA, The Company. Founded in 2008 by experts in the Essential Oils business, there are no outside investors with dōTERRA – the owners personally funded the start-up and own 100% of the company. They changed their lifestyles, took second mortgages, and worked without pay to make their own choices early on. dōTERRA is now the largest oil company in the world, debt-free.
dōTERRA is family-focused and pro-woman. One of the owners is a woman; Mamas and babies and families are welcomed, encouraged and supported through dōTERRA, from classes to conferences.
dōTERRA gives back. Healing Hands is dōTERRA’s non-profit, and it’s funded by members, employees and the executives. Our option is to donate each month on our monthly orders, and the company raises funds via events as well. Healing Hands has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and has changed many lives in several countries.
dōTERRA’s oils are delicious. Pure, high quality, optimally-sourced Oils are at the heart of dōTERRA’s success. Sourcing the Oils where they flourish, making sure the soil is primed, harvested at the perfect time, distilled for the ideal amount of time at the perfect temperature – this leads to a high quality Essential Oil. dōTERRA also has many exclusives with their growers, so their Oils are exceptional.
dōTERRA’s testing practices are stringent. For transparent accountability, they’ve created an internal standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG), verified by third party labs. The name is a trademark; the standard is real and concrete. Stringent testing happens throughout the whole process (even monitoring soil quality) on EVERY liter. All of the basics are checked first: sight, smell, taste and touch. Then they test to rule out any presence of fungus, mold, pesticides, extenders and any other contaminants. Learn more about the science of their practices of testing here. Each location has its own specific laws and rules governing agriculture and collecting wild-crafted botanicals. If an oil fails the test, specifically pesticides, there is no secondary process for removing the pesticides or foreign matter. The oils failing the test would simply be rejected. Other than the careful distillation of the oils from the plant material, no other processing takes place. They are aromatic extracts, nothing added, and nothing removed; they either meet that standard or they don’t.
dōTERRA focuses on education. On the site, you’ll find hundreds of hours of free education, guidance, recipes and other support for both oil users and those building businesses. Company-wide resources are supplemented by our team’s resources, from forums to weekly calls, and those who have businesses with dōTERRA are amply supported. Product support of any kind is one email or knowledgable phone call away, detailed PDFs for each oil can be found at doterratools.com, and more on the company, the products and the business opportunity can be found on doterrauniversity.com.

Paying them above fair wages, dōTERRA often brings in the Healing Hands foundation to improve the community as a whole as well.

The people, the social aspect, and the connection. So many times a week as I connect with my team via video, text, phone or in person, I’m reminded of why this is such a good choice for me. I love tbeing an artist and teaching art, it’s my life’s passion, but I also love switching on my business mind and empowering myself to reach past where I thought I could go, in order to cultivate a thriving organization of my very own. I’ve made great friends, boosted my confidence, empowered other women – and now I’m saving money. And after many years of resisting, I’ve finally begun to create a real relationship with my financial future. Stretching my brain in new directions has been a welcomed shift for me.

Essential Oils have been a part of my daily ritual, my health and wellness for my mind, body and spirit, since I was in college. Thirty-plus years. When I was introduced to dōTERRA Oils I was immediately struck by the realness of the aromas. I was hesitant at first to purchase them, but bought a bottle of lavender oil, my nightly oil for sleeping. Wow. What a difference. This Oil smelled alive. Pure. I knew I wanted to replace the oils I had in my medicine chest with dōTERRA. And then I discovered that it wasn’t just a product I could buy at the store. I started my research and here is what I learned:
