An Introduction to Essential Oils

In the spring of 2008, doTerra, meaning "gift of the earth" was founded.  They wanted to provide high quality essential oils to enhance many lives.  In addition to sharing oils, doTerra aspired to serve people and communities with the resources they had.  Have you heard of doTerra?  Have you always wanted to learn more about it?  Well you're in the right place. 
 
 Why doTerra?
           - Plants are sourced all over the world.  What does that mean?  When the plants are sourced that means that they're in their true environment to produce the best properties in the plant. 
           - Harvested at the most opportune time
           - Every batch is rigorously tested by a third party
           - Testing ensures the absence of toxins, contaminants and assures the presence of desired therapeutic properties.  

 What is an Essential Oil?
           - Extracts from plants
           - Found in the seeds, bark, root, stems, flowers and other parts of plants
           - Highly concentrated (less is more)
           - 50 - 70 times more powerful than herbs

Ordering These Wonderful Oils
When you purchase essential oils through me, not only are you getting them directly from the source, but you are supporting my small, home based business....Thank you!  
When you purchase doTerra essential oils, you become a wholesale member (like Sam's Club or Costco) and receive a discount of 25% on all your oils for one year.  There's a $35 membership fee (that is waved when you purchase an enrollment kit) and then you can get the wholesale prices.  There is never any obligation to purchase every month either.

Here are two of the most popular kits...


The first one is the Home Essentials kit.  It's our number one selling enrollment kit for people just starting out with the oils.  This kit has all 10 of the oils you just read about and has larger 15ml. bottles that have 250 drops in each and a petal diffuser.  It costs $275. 

Our second most popular kit is our Family Essentials kit which has the same oils but they are in smaller 5ml. bottles (85 drops), On Guard and Peppermint beadlets.  This kit costs only $150.
