Personal products with values that match your own.
When it comes to plants, we instinctively know how to use a few of them already.
Each time we add a slice of lemon to our water, we’re seeking its cleansing citrus properties.
We seek out peppermint tea for that tummy settling minty freshness.
Crush lavender between our fingers and inhale deeply, for that rich, calming aroma.
Crave oranges when our immune systems are feeling down.
And arrange flowers in our home for their uplifting qualities, to soften and sweeten any space.
No efforts are ever wasted in nature.
But to truly experience the therapeutic qualities of these plants (and many, many more), let me introduce you to their most potent form: the pure essential oil.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are natural compounds found within some of nature’s most basic gifts (seeds, bark, roots, stems, flowers and other plant parts).
They’re tiny molecules that give plants their distinctive smell, keep them healthy, help them heal from injury, protect them from pests and play a role in plant pollination.
Essentially… an essential oil isthe plant’s extracted liquid essence with powerhouse properties that can be absorbed by your body and put to work in wondrous ways.
Safe, Effective, Affordable
But – and this is important - it’s critical that you’re brutally selective. With thousands of brands out there, most of which contain synthetic compounds or are highly diluted with multi-purpose liquid, purity is paramount.
This is why I choose doTERRA essential oils - because of their purity, first and foremost.
What makes doTERRA different?
Their purity, supply chain and charitable work.
doTERRA offers the safest, most effective and highest quality essential oils in the world. They have pioneered a completely new sourcing model proving it’s possible to be ethical AND profitable.
With more than 140 oils from over 45 countries (most of which are developing nations), doTERRA has introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing to ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically. Instead of buying plots of land all over the world, they invest in long-term partnerships with the people and communities on the ground - helping them continue as proprietors of their own land, while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. Implementing environmental stewardship and/or social impact initiatives.
Sourcing the best and helping the most.
Healing Hands Foundation
Additionally, the Healing Hands Foundation® (doTERRA’s non-profit partner) works with local community leaders in these Co-Impact Sourcing areas, to understand community needs and help develop community projects.
doTERRA prioritises projects that are thoughtful, impactful and sustainable with a focus on micro-loans, anti human trafficking (prevention/rescue/aftercare), disaster relief, access to education and health care. In collaboration with humanitarian partners and Wellness Advocates (like me) from all over the world, we’re building medical clinics, installing drinking water and irrigation systems, building schools, and improving infrastructure.
Each time you buy a product from doTERRA, you’re directly supporting these projects too.

Personally, the oils have given me:

5. Natural alternatives to synthetic and pharmaceutical products.

7. And frankly, I’ve never smelt better!
