Designing a Healthier Home
Essential Oils have been an integral part of helping us create a healthier home. This is our journey on how we are using essential oils and our pursuit to live a healthier life.
Hi, I’m Leasa and this is my family. When our daughter was born, we had to drastically change the way we looked at food; given her list of nearly 12 allergies as a baby! We became more thoughtful about the ingredients we put into our bodies but quickly realized it wasn’t just food that needed a closer look, but the everyday products we used as well. From the things we used on our skin to the scents we breathed in on a regular basis.
This change inspired us to look at our lifestyle differently, and encouraged us to seek safer, more natural ways to approach our daily life.
Why Essential Oils
We were first introduced to essential oils when we decided to cloth diaper our daughter because her skin was very sensitive to conventional disposables. We used Melaluca (Tea Tree Oil) and Lavender not only to clean the diapers but started to replace our household cleaners as well.
Essential oils is a part of our mission to live a healthier family life and we hope our story can help others who are also on this journey.
How to use Essential Oils
Breathing in pure essential oils by diffusing into the air can help promote emotional benefits to our body. Oils or oil blends can be very calming and soothing, while others can be very stimulating and enhance focus. Diffusing can also help cleanse and purify the air.
Topical application is a very effective method for applying essential oils because they easily penetrate the skin. It is always recommended to use a carrier oil (such as Fractionated Coconut Oil) to dilute oils when applying topically.
Certain pure therapeutic grade oils can be used as a dietary supplement to aid and support the body for more targeted wellness benefits. Proper dosing according to labeling recommendations and other professional guidelines should be followed.
Founded in 2008, dōTERRA was built on the mission of sharing therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world. Having seen for themselves the incredible benefits that can be had from using these precious resources, a group of health-care and business professionals set out to make this mission a reality. They formed a company and named it doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.”
Cō-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. dōTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I don't want to buy a starter kit? Is there another option?
If the starter kits aren’t what you are looking for, you have the option to buy individual oils or other dōTERRA product on their own. Simply go through the steps above to set up an account and add the $35 Introductory Enrollment Packet under the kits tab to your cart (Item #60200277). This is your Wholesale Membership fee. You will than be able to purchase all your products with the 25% wholesale discount.
If I sign up with a wholesale membership am I required to sell oils?
Nope! While the opportunity to share oils and earn money is exciting, we realize it’s not for everyone. If you simply want to use your wholesale membership to purchase products for you and your family, that is wonderful. The decision to sell or share oils as a wellness advocate is totally up to you.
If you decide at any time you would like to know more about the opportunities with dōTERRA to supliment or even replace your income, we’d love to talk with you more. You have the option to upgrade your account at any time for free to a Wellness Advocate.
What's the difference between a Wholesale Customer and a Wellness Advocate?
A Wholesale Customer and Wellness Advocate both receive many of the same exciting perks that go along with being a dōTERRA memeber, including the 25% wholesale pricing on all products. Both receive your own personal login to buy product at any time. However, a Wellness Advocate has the opportunity to share the oils with others to earn money to help pay for their oils, supplement income or even replace your income.
If you are not sure where to start, we are happy to talk through the options with you. Know that you can always start as a Wholesale customer and upgrade at any time (No FEE) to a Wellness Advocate.
