It seems like everyone's got their paws on essential oils these days, right? Plus, all the stores have jumped on the bandwagon...we're seeing oils and diffusers everywhere we go now! Your friends on Facebook can't stop talking about doTERRA and you're wondering when this madness will end.
Well...first of all, essential oils are nothing new. They have been in existence since 3000 BCE with the Egyptians who used plant extracts for a myriad of purposes.
It is not breaking news that plants have healing properties and a wide variety of benefits. It is just that in the past ten or so years that the purest and most effective form of essential oils have become easily accessible to us. If you have a skin irritation, you're more likely to buy an over the counter medication or get a prescription cream than to run out to your nearest lavender field and try healing yourself with the plant. It has (until recently) become easier to pop a pain reliever or muscle relaxant that you keep in your cabinet than to go outside seeking plants and herbs to aid your pain.
But, before the introduction of modern medication (which I am not against, for the record) that was how our ancestors did it! That's how they rolled. In fact, I am of Mohawk (Aboriginal tribe from southern Ontario) descent and I recently found out that my great grandmother was what they'd call a "healer" and people would come to her when they were ill. She'd go get roots and plants from outside and make them tea to heal them. I was pretty mind blown and excited when I found that out, because in a way that's what I do now! Only, I have the convenience of simply educating people about the powerful and easy-to-use doTERRA essential oils. It is so exciting to give people hope, remedies, and the empowerment to care for themselves and their families naturally.
To read more about why I choose doTERRA specifically, click here. The way they source and test their oils for efficacy and purity is hands down why they have such a high customer retention rate! That rate is 68% if you're wondering, compared to a direct sales industry average rate of 10%.
Of course essential oils have been around much longer than ten years, but with the introduction of doTERRA, the largest and most rapidly growing essential oil company (a growth curvature that has been compared to that of Apple products), people are realizing"wow, these really work, and they are not just for hippies".
When you think about it, why wouldn't they work? Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts of plants (volatile aromatic compounds) that are 50-70x more powerful than herbs. Do you think its an accident that Lavender happens to have soothing properties? That Ginger happens to be great for soothing our digestive systems, while plants like Tea Tree or Frankincense are great for coughs and colds, our immune system, and our skin? We have been given so much to heal ourselves with, perfect as nature has prepared them for us. What I love is that doTERRA doesn't mess with that, and they put in the work to source the globe for us and bring the awesome healing power right to our homes!
Myself, among many others are slowly replacing our medicine cabinets, toxic beauty products, and chemically charged household cleaners with these amazing, little brown bottles full of basically liquid gold. Or should I say liquid Frankincense and Myrrh? ;)
I am beyond grateful to have essential oils in my life, and am so glad my sister insisted and persisted I try them, when I myself was a major skeptic. Read here about some members of my little oil community and why they are loving their oils!
In a society where we are used to being tricked by labels that claim their product is "natural" when it's really less than 15% pure, and "natural products" that are so weak or mild (and again, not pure) they don't even work...people are joyous once they discover doTERRA and how different it is. These work, and they work fast. doTERRA is so confident you'll love it too, so they have an amazing customer satisfaction guarantee. So, you have nothing to lose. Get started today with wholesale membership (to save the most money) or kit to build your collection!
By the way...if you have even the slightest entrepreneurial bone in your body, you probably got intrigued as I mentioned some of the amazing growth and popularity doTERRA has seen. It's not too late to get in on this action. There are still a ton of people who haven't been introduced to this better way of life yet! And, lucky for you, there is always room on my team for eager, dedicated and passionate souls who want to embark on this crazy, rewarding, and exciting journey with us. I can't wait to empower you!
