When I first heard about doTERRA, my son was very sick. A trusted health guru I know told me to try essential oils. Without recommending any one brand he said, "Just make sure they are pure." So, on the hunt I went. I knew not to go to Walmart, yet I didn’t know that the essential oil industry had not one regulatory standard on any oils in the world and can lace their oils with turpentine, dilute it with cheaper oils, sell as a more expensive oil, or worse. After trying the essential oils for my son, nothing changed. Notta. I gave up on all essential oils.
Fifteen months later, I was invited to learn about essential oils from a doTERRA class. I actually said, "no" three times before I finally went. As a mom, when the essential oils I tried didn't work for my son, I dismissed them as a means to help with anything serious. As a health coach, I thought I knew a lot about natural medicine and didn't need to learn even more. But something inside me said, "go"; just check it out. I was pleasantly surprised by the way doTERRA classes are held. That class helped me learn things about essential oils I had never learned about… and I was shocked!
I thought about all the things that may have come across your mind, “Oh it’s a Network Marketing company”, “it’s too expensive,” and once the business opportunity came my way I thought, “I don’t have enough time to invest into this as a business.” My husband not only did NOT support me buying even the smallest kit, he DEFINITELY did not support me sharing doTERRA as a business. I understood, after all, ALL the negativity around Network Marketing: The rich get richer, it’s a scam, they’ll take all your money, what will people think of me, and so much more was in the back of my head. In fact, the first thing I researched online was “doTERRA scam”! Yet, I could not shake the internal pull toward doTERRA in my heart!
After fifteen months of trying everything I knew, four days after bringing doTERRA in my home changed my sons life to this day, even 5 years later, and there is NO sign of his issues returning.
So, I made an agreement with my husband. I told him he didn't have to support doTERRA, but to support me. I said, "if I don’t get the money back we put into bringing these oils in our home after three months, then I will quit." Well, I guess you know what happened. ;) In three months, we MORE than broke even.
I’ve heard the “it’s too expensive” struggle. I thought it as well. We were living beneath the poverty level before doTERRA came along, so investing into a kit was not a decision we took lightly. From years prior, our kids had been sick. The money we DID have was always invested into top quality food as well as all natural, pure ingredients in everything else. What I had already come to know in those years of changing my home for the better, was that the food and health industry wasn’t always as they wanted us to believe. Even after reading labels, I would find myself calling companies and asking for them to confirm their labels or asking for any hidden ingredients or cross contamination. Most times I was surprised to learn how much is left out of many of these labels. When it came to bringing essential oils into our home, I had to do my homework.
I know the reason I still share about these life changing gifts of the Earth, even with you today. The reason I still yell from the rooftops about doTERRA’s truly pure and high quality oils is because I don’t want you to do what I did. I don’t want you to dismiss essential oils altogether because the essentials oils you bought from Walmart or the health food stores in your town didn’t work for you. DoTERRA’s oils are different. Bringing doTERRA’s oils into our home changed our lives forever. Click here and join me as I talk about why I fell in love with doTERRA and why you should consider doTERRA too.
