How to Start Your Essential Oil Journey

doTERRA Peppermint Oil

I believe a ‘natural’ lifestyle is attainable for everyone.

I am on my journey as I discover my perfect balance of ‘mainstream’ and ‘alternate’, of ‘natural’ and ‘conventional’. I truly believe that everyone’s ‘holistic barometer’ will be different and it’s ok to embrace that!

But I may have stumbled across the perfect little tool to merge both worlds with absolute ease. Essential oils are both small (15ml bottles are not exactly mammoth proportions) and powerful. They are a far cry from mere room fragrances and can support use in every area of our lives.

I’ve dabbled with oils throughout my life, but I never truly understood the benefits of what I was using. As a teenager, I remember filling my room with the scent of something while I did my homework and I would get ‘in the zone’ to study. More recently, I loved burning a citrus-y oil while I was home because it added such a happy vibe to my day.

Without realising it, I had been intuitively using oils for years. Yet, despite my inadvertent use of essential oils to aid my focus and lift my mood, I honestly continued to think of them as ‘just a nice smell’. They were something I reached for to add a bit of ambience to a room.

Then I was introduced to doTERRA essential oils. 

And I have now discovered a new meaning to the words ‘purity’ and ‘potency’. I have been absolutely gobsmacked by how quickly and fully these oils have integrated into every facet of my life.

Essential oils are no longer just things I use to make my house smell nice. They have become everyday tools that help me to:

+ Promote more sound & restful sleep
+ Elevate my skincare & clarify scarring and pigmentation
+ Support digestive & hormonal health
+ Enhance my cooking
+ Boost my immunity
+ Remove toxins in my cleaning
+ Ease anxiety and manage mood
+ Deepen meditation & spiritual practices

I am still amazed by how easily I hit the ground running; in my first week I had used every single oil I’d purchased (there were 10) all around my home. Lavender at bedtime, Frankincense in my skincare, OnGuard in my diffuser, Tea-tree in my laundry and Oregano in my spag bol. The list just went on and on.

And I am still learning new oils, new uses and more information every single day.

I want to buy the oils!

What makes doTERRA special?

This is a company with absolute heart and soul, not to mention a vision.

I would not put my name to something I am not fully aligned with. The more I read about doTERRA, the more I felt my heart continually expand. Here was a company that ticks all the boxes and they sell a product I actually care about.

doTERRA is a goddam unicorn, my friend, and they’re doing some incredible things.

Sustainable sourcing. doTERRA essential oils

doTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing

In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils doTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production.

With over 100 essential oils in its product line, doTERRA sources its oils from over 40 countries —more than half of which could be considered developing countries. To ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, doTERRA has introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing.

Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.

Additionally, the  Healing Hands Foundation, doTERRA’s charitable organisation, provides funding and resources to create community-based, social-impact projects to improve lives in the larger communities where oils are sourced. Past projects include building or sponsoring existing medical clinics, installing drinking water and irrigation systems, building schools, and providing other educational resources such as vocational training programs.

A new standard of ‘pure’ oily goodness

The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. An essential oil that isn’t pure means you run the risk of putting germs, heavy metals, or adulterants onto or into your body, which can provoke irritation, adverse effects, or even sickness. Without an accepted standard for essential oil quality, doTERRA created its own testing process, calling it CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. The CPTG process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in their essential oils that would reduce their efficacy. doTERRA even goes a step further, putting all their products and the packaging through a battery of tests to ensure a long and effective shelf-life. This protocol ensures potency, purity, and consistency batch to batch.

You can head here to find out more about the numerous forms of testing in the CPTG process.

I’m ready to get these oils into my life!

For some people, this is more than just a way of life.

Some people simply love using doTERRA essential oils. They love the way of life that it represents. But for some people, doTERRA is more than the products they reach for every day. It has gifted them with the means to supplement or completely replace their income.

While I was diving head first into the world of doTERRA essential oils, I was introduced to the incredible, inspiring and beautiful business opportunity that the company offers.

I knew I want to do more in this world. I knew I had a passion for educating. I knew I wanted to hold workshops and classes and teach people how to incorporate natural & toxin-free beauty alternatives into their existing lifestyle. Most of all, I wanted to inspire women.

Ask and the universe shall deliver. And in this instance, it came in the form of Melissa Ambrosini’s shining, smiling face.

For those of you who are new to these parts, Melissa is a deadset change-agent and her podcast, mentoring programs and book have all been a huge source of inspiration and personal growth for me. So, when her gorgeous smile appeared in her Business Bootcamp Facebook group one day, and she shared that she had a dream and an invitation for all of us, I got that tingly feeling that only comes when you know destiny has come a ‘knocking.

You see, Melissa and her husband Nick Broadhurst had created a whole-damn course to help their team (and their team’s team) smash goals and create their very own heart-centred wealth and income. Path To Freedom is, essentially, a tick-the-box guide to ‘doing’ doTERRA business.

This generous opportunity to build heart-centred wealth is an incredible gift that centres around education and sharing something you love. Which is everything I stand for. And if you believe in creating more abundance, more wealth and more ease in your life, then this might just be the universe knocking on your door as well.

Whether you are a loving customer or passionately building an authentic business, doTERRA can create a lasting impact on your world – something I realised from Day One.
