If you're curious, you can read all about what led me to Doterra under the "oils & why I chose Doterra" tab, if you haven't already. I'm so passionate about the importance of self care & advocating for your own wellness and these oils have made such a positive impact for not only me, but my entire family as well.

Some quick facts about why I use and trust Doterra, after using another essential oil brand for several years:
+ EVERY batch of oils is tested extensively, both in house via CPTG quality testing (read more here) AND by an independent, verified third party lab
+ Transparency: Doterra goes the extra step with FULL TRANSPARENCY by giving every bottle of oil a lot number, which you can use to view the GCMS quality reports from the third party lab at https://sourcetoyou.com/en
+ Oils are only sourced from plants grown in their native habitat, yielding oils with higher therapeutic properties (this is what initially caught my attention because I immediately noticed these oils worked better for us than what we had been using for years)
+ Co-Impact Sourcing model- this is what sets them apart from ANY other company. Not only to they only source their oils from plants grown in their indigenous region but they partner with farmers who are experts at their trade and come from generations of experience to create sustainable jobs & reliable income to underdeveloped areas while producing the highest quality of oils in the industry. This Co-Impact Sourcing initiative also includes their Healing Hands Foundation which helps support development projects like clean water systems, health clinics, schools and improved infrastructure in sourcing communities. They also work with Parters For Global Impact to fight human trafficking. You can read more about co-impact sourcing here and the Healing Hands Foundation here.
+ A community that truly values education. As a wellness advocate I'm not only allowed but encouraged to share safe brands that I know and trust as I educate on wellness topics. This isn't about teaching people that most items on the market are toxic or "bad" and only offering 1 product or brand as their solution. This stuff isn't a "one size fits all" scenario. It's about digging deep into these issues, educating about why it's important to advocate for your own health in these areas and to help people make INFORMED decisions as to what's best for them/their family...not to pretend a single brand or product is the best, one size fits all, answer for everyone.
One the things I loved the most when I first explored Doterra was the many options they offer for purchasing products. It's not a "one size fits all" scenerio where a starter kit is pushed as the answer for everyone but, rather, you have the option (and are encouraged) to start with exactly what you want/need and what will serve you best. For some that might be a full kit but for others that might look like just a handful of oils/products. While you can also definitely purchase at retail if you prefer, their wholesale membership offers such a great discount, it's silly to not take advantage of it!
+ You can become a wholesale member (with zero obligation to ever share/sell) with of one of their bundled kits and there are lots to choose from. Going that route waives the $35 wholesale membership. (After that, your yearly renewal is only $25 AND you get a free 15 ml bottle of peppermint oil which retail for $29+)
+ You can simply purchase a wholesale membership for $35 and build your own cart, i.e. just grab the items you want, whether that's a single oil to start or a variety of products, and you're set up with the 25% wholesale discount and access to all of the perks/promos.
(As a wholesale member, if you ever decide to become a Wellness Advocate like I did, you can upgrade your account for no charge with just a few clicks online.)
If you have questions or need any help navigating how to get started, I'm happy to help you choose which options and/or products will serve you best! There's NO reason to feel overwhelmed. I can even set up your shopping cart for you, based on your needs/wants, and send you the link to checkout to make it super quick & easy!
