My whole family in front of the doTERRA sign!
TOP 10 things I learned about doTERRA while at convention! I was SO impressed with doTERRA… I have been with this company for almost 10 years and this convention really reaffirmed everything for me!!!
- THEY ARE A FAMILY COMPANY – I loved seeing all of the families and mothers with strollers/baby carriers around convention! There were 5,000 strollers at convention this year! I love being able to work and include my family in it all…especially meeting other military mamas wearing their babes in line to walk as new Platinums. Everybody can share oils no matter what age (I saw people at convention older than my grandparents) or what circumstances (Like say moving every couple of years with the Army)…they can make a sustainable income for their family. Every year it just keeps getting better and better.

- MOST TESTED. MOST TRUSTED – Not all essential oils are created equal and at the end of the day you get what you pay for…with 85% of the essential oil market being contaminated or adulterated in some way. doTERRA is one of a few companies that are providing oils that are free of synthetics, fertilizers, allergens, fillers, and pesticides. Never buy your oils from Amazon or the grocery store…you cant guarantee what you are getting and I wouldn’t put that on your skin since you don’t know what it is.
- HEALING HANDS FOUNDATION – Not only do we have the most pure essential oils but also we are doing so much good all around the world! doTERRA and there 6 million + wellness advocates/wholesale customers dream to end poverty breaking the cycle of generations and giving people a hand up, not a hand out through our Healing Hands and our Co-Impact Sourcing. They work closely and donate to organizations like O.U.R. rescue and Rapha House to help put an end to sex trafficking and for the rehabilitation after they have been rescued. All of these issues go hand in hand and every time we use these essential oils or donate to Healing Hands we are paying it forward. It was very humbling to see all the good we are doing in the world.

The O.U.R. rescue for child sex trafficking is using this mobile labs as seen above to bust child sex offenders right on spot. Thanks to our donations through Healing Hands we are making a big difference for this rescue operation as well as other ones.
- CO- IMPACT SOURCING – FARMERS FIRST! 96% of our oils are exclusive to us…which means no other company can use our farms or connections to source oils. We used to be at 84% exclusive… now at 96% (almost 100%) exclusive to doTERRA! AMAZING! So when someone tells you their oil are the same as doTERRA…remember that ours are exclusive to the doTERRA brand! We also source our oils sustainably from 46 different countries (head to sourcetoyou.com for more info) We work with small farmers all over the world…for the most part for those that are in poverty-stricken areas to create partnerships with them to grow our precious oils where they are most potent. Where these oils are indigenous and have been growing for generations! We provide these farmers long-term jobs and change entire communities…we also provide micro loans for entrepreneurship as well as help with providing education for their children, clean water, medical clinics, health education and proper hygiene, and disaster relief as needed. We continue to find ways to empower these families as continue to find more countries to source from!
I went to visit the construction site on doTERRA’s campus where the new Integrated Health clinic is being built! Coming in April 2019! Read more below!
- HEALTH CLINICS COMING – Prime Meridian health clinics are starting officially in April 2019. The first one is in Pleasant Grove, Utah at doTERRA’s headquarters. The next three will be in St. George, Utah, Phoenix, Arizona, and Nashville, Tennessee! But don’t worry these beautiful East meets Western medicine clinics will be coming to an area near you in the future. These clinics are so needed in a world where you wait for 20 minutes to an hour for your doctor only to see them for on average of 5-7 minutes. You wait more than you are actually seen in most cases. These clinics will be the best of both worlds – Traditional + Complementary medicine = Integrated and with the new clinics you will have a guaranteed better doctor relationship with longer appointments…the length of the appointment will be anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending upon your needs. These doctors will be trained in essential oils and natural treatments but also have a medical background to treat you in the best way! Plus, there will be a telemedicine option if you just need to check in with your doctor via the phone. And you will have a patient portal that will allow you to see all of the doctors notes and the MRI imaging if you happen to be seen somewhere else. So that you can easily remember all that was discussed. Not to mention the fee is paid directly to the doctor on a monthly membership model…no need to go through the mess of insurance. So if I don’t live by one of these soon…I am moving by one…haha AMAZING!! Disrupting healthcare in a world that so desperately needs this change!!
- HUNTSMAN CANCER INSTITUTE – we donated a $5 million dollar (5 MILLION) check to continue the mission of HCI. Our donation went specifically for a Center for Well-Being and Women’s Cancer. We are now partnered with them to continue to fight the fight and help them to live out their mission to eradicate cancer from the planet! I am so proud we have partnered with them!
- MEDICAL PARTNERSHIPS – We have 100’s of partnerships with research facilities, medical hospitals, and doctors! Besides us moving forward with our health clinics like I discussed in #5…we have a wonderful medical advisory board that leads us and is helping to make this dream of health clinics a reality. We also partner with top health universities and research centers like the Huntsman Cancer Institute to ensure we are on the cutting edge of essential oil science. doTERRA has also discovered how essential oils effect the pathways of our bodies. They know how they work on a microscopic level and how they effect and support our nervous systems, muscle tissues, organ health as well as cellular health. Nicole Stevens a scientist on our medical advisory board said, “the floodgates are opening as we investigate how these oils interact with the human body”. She is a scientist and a mother who uses these oils on her children so wonderful hearing from both sides. You can be confident when using these oils on your own family…this is such a beautiful investment for your health and for the lives of those around the world who benefit from Co-Impact sourcing and the Healing Hands foundation!
- 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY – “Quality starts long before the seeds are planted” We have to date provided 96,095 jobs and impacted 455,549 lives through our Co-Impact sourcing and Healing Hands foundation! I just cant say enough about this company! David Stirling one of our founding executives and president went through all of our many, many accomplishments in the last ten years…he explained the last 10 years as the first big wave. We are now approaching the next big wave – people are apprectiative of the powers of essential oils and we are about to differentiate our oils again with quality and our new healthcare initiative. I am ready to catch this next wave for sure.
- LAUNCHING A doTERRA VETERINARY BOARD– doTERRA has assembled some of the most renowned vets who are pioneering the use of essential oils in their practice! The panel at convention discussed that oils are safe to use around your pets…just use common sense. Don’t diffuser 20 drops of Melaleuca in the diffuser around them…smaller animals digest that oil differently. One of the doctors, made mention that the quality and purity of doTERRA are best and are everything. Without those standards, doTERRA couldn’t be the safest possible for your pets. So back to our #2 Most Tested, Most Trusted and sourcetoyou.com. Your fur babies deserve the very best!
- LAST BUT NOT LEAST – THE NEW PRODUCTS! These products blew me away and I know everyone at convention agrees. This was the best convention kit in all of doTERRA’s years! I am most excited about our Turmeric oil that in supplement form has poor absorption but the essential oil is much more effective. Magnolia touch roller smells so good and so calming to your emotions + your tissues. The kid’s kit!!! KID’S KIT!!!! We have been waiting so long for this kit and they knocked it out of the park!!! Go here to see the youtube video on how doTERRA announced the kid’s kit. I was like how cute a kid’s video once I realized it was entire kid’s rollerball line I couldn’t stop clapping and cheering. I want a set for myself because they are just that good. The On Guard mouthwash is another thing that I have been waiting for…no more making my own! It tastes so good like a red hot and it makes your mouth feel so clean! My other favorite is the re-vamped Balance Grounding blend deodorant. This deodorant is so effective at keeping odor and moisture away. It has a little hint of Balance blend…they will also be announcing a Citrus Bliss scent and a gentle deodorant as well. Oh and don’t forget the Copaiba softgels making it easier to get all the benefits Copaiba has to offer! Plus, all the new oils and Yarrow|Pom.
