If you have followed us for a while you will know that we are super excited by essential oils, especially the company doTERRA. It fills our heart with joy, it has allowed us the financial freedom to expand our business, it has given us the opportunity to travel and it has provided us with numerous ways to improve our additive free lives – past just flavouring food.
But this is not where were started out if we are entirely honest, we had massive reservations and all the same fears as everyone else…this is a multi-level marketing company after all…and aren’t they just a pyramid scheme! NO THANKS, NOT FOR US!
That was until we learned more about doTERRA…and the more we learned the more we fell in love.
doTERRA is different. We don’t know how to describe it, but it just is. Some might sit there and roll their eyes… “but they are a billion dollar company so it must be about the money.” Well, after you hear the founders story, learn where they started from, learn that they turned down investors (who wanted majority control), learn that they instead mortgaged themselves to the hilt and created doTERRA from the ground up, learn that they didn’t pay themselves a cent for around 13 months…you begin to understand that this company is about love, respect and integrity… and very little to do with the money – it is truly outstanding!
Don’t get us wrong, we are not saying that money isn’t important, because the reality is, that of course it is. WE ALL need money to survive, but that is another amazing this about this company – it allows thousands of families the financial freedoms that you only dream of, but they do it in a way that is not sleazy or pushy. Sharing the benefits of essential oils is powerful.
It’s really clear to us that the founders of doTERRA have people at heart, rather than profits. With a vision of offering families all over the world the benefits of essential oils, they are well on their way to achieving that vision.
It all started with peppermint chocolate!
Ok, back to us. We didn’t want to have anything to do with the business side of doTERRA, we already had a business!åÊ We didn’t want to host classes or workshops or push this onto our family and friends (aka you guys), we didn’t want to ‘sell’ doTERRA, not one little bit (it is kinda funny now when we look back, lol). All we wanted to do was make peppermint chocolate using something that was not synthetic. We had looked around the shops and couldn’t find anything suitable, so we turned to the internet, and after many searches, doTERRA kept coming up. We had finally found the flavouring we needed, but how do we buy it…oh bugga, it is a ‘direct selling’ company…and as we said earlier, this turned us right off.
As fate would have it, we happened to be contacted by someone we trusted and they wanted to ‘sign us up’. We first said no thanks, but because we trusted this person, we believed them when they said – it is different, you don’t have to sell, you don’t have to do anything blah blah blah…
So we put our fate in their hands and signed our lives away – well that is what it felt like – did we just sign the rights to our firstborn to some MLM company…..surely this was not going to end well!!!
The rest, as they say, is history!
Don’t get us wrong, it didn’t happen overnight, but pretty quickly we became hooked. Not only did we learn that some essential oils were amazing in bliss balls (just saying), but we soon started experimenting with body scrubs, lotions and potions. We have since gone on to learn more and more about these little bottles of magic and now that we know what we do, we will NEVER live without them!
As soon as you step into the world of doTERRA, you’ll be pretty blown away by just what these oils can do – you have been warned, lol!

You’ll learn about all of the amazing ways doTERRA give back to third world organisations and how they sustainably source their oils from around the world.
From building schools to visiting the countries where their oils are sourced and meeting all the farmers, to actually taking one of their oils off the market, after they found out the plants they sourced the oil from were at risk of becoming extinct. doTERRA is doing huge things to ensure their oils are created with care from harvest to shelf.
