I have always been passionately curious about wellness. Having various health issues in my life motivated me to find a way to maintain harmony within the mental, emotional, and physical body. In an age of contradictory information when it comes to our health, it is so important to find high-quality natural products that are made in a sustainable way.
Four years ago I did a yoga teacher training. I had IBS, indigestion, chronic acne, and intense anxiety. The woman who trained me introduced me to essential oils. I quickly experienced the power these plant medicines have. However, not all oils are created equal. I did so much research on finding a brand with integrity that is high quality. This is when I found doTERRA…..
The Path to Wellness
After experiencing the healing that essential oils can offer, the quality of my life changed massively. When I had panic attacks, my safety blankets were “Calm” and “Breathe” oil, combined with a heated yoga class. I started diffusing lavender oil at night and putting it on my wrists. The powerful aroma helped quiet my mind and lull me into a deep sleep. I use reflexology on my feet, diluting Deep Blue with coconut oil and pressing on certain acupressure points to relieve my low back pain. As you can tell…there are a lot of different ways to use these plant medicines. When you discover what your biggest pain points are, whether it be an emotional, physical, or financial struggle…you can leverage the power of mother nature to transform your life in a way of absolute integrity.
Long story short: I use these oils in all areas of my life. I bring them on my retreats, to the yoga classes I teach. I use them when I write. I use them when I cook and clean. At first I was hesitant about buying them, but then I realized I was already paying for products like soap, deodorant, face wash, etc. that had chemicals in them. So I figured I could invest the same amount of money in a conscious company that is helping positively impact the world. These essential oils are….well….essential.

Beyond having the highest quality products, doTERRA has an unwavering commitment to the farmers and growers who bring us these botanical beauties. They cultivate the herbs where they are indigenous to, which makes them the most healing, still using ancient practices.
It's important we support farmers using the traditional distillation practices to protect the land and it's people.
doTERRA pays farmers 4x what they normally make to ensure they're using ancient practices and to keep the industry alive. They've helped hundreds of thousands of women get out of sex trafficking by providing them with jobs to cultivate these oils in countries like Kenya, Vietnam and Guatemala. Entire families and communities are supported by their partnership with doTERRA.
doTERRA is the only certified therapeutic grade oil out there and is third party tested, which no other oil is.They support a culture of empowerment, called collaborative business— everyone, no matter who they are, where they come from, or what their life looks like, can benefit from this extraordinary business model. (A nice change of pace from the everyone-for-themselves competition we were conditioned to be a part of in corporate world)
Above all, they honor Mother Nature — if something can’t be done sustainably, they don’t do it.
