A few years back, I learned that my nervous system was wired utterly, and completely different from what my mind and intentions were working towards. I was carrying trauma written all over my cellular composition, so deep it had never come up to the surface. I had no idea my cells were working at a completely different vibration than what my conscious or my mind was telling me.
It felt like I was hosting a team in my house, thinking we all had a common goal, but in reality, everyone was working towards a different direction — towards a different goal #mashpotatoes.
I dug deep, and I learned that the work needed to be done on a cellular level. I needed something that would make a difference and change the way I was wired inside. Everything we experience in our childhood writes our chemical and physical makeup. It is the journal of our internal composition. So a friend suggested essential oils. I wasn't a fan of them, they do smell incredible, but I didn't think they had such profound properties.
I tried different ones until I found the doTERRA supplements and oils that can be ingested. This elevated my practice to a whole new different level. I was able to heal my trauma, re-write my internal makeup, and truly aligned with where I chose my consciousness to be.
I wanted to share this new way of seeing essential oils with everyone!
Why doTERRA? Doterra was founded in 2008, with a commitment to establishing patterns of giving. There are no outside investors; the founders personally funded the startup and own 100% of the company.
Family-focused and empowerment-centric. Mamas, babies, and families are welcomed, encouraged, and supported at classes and conferences. One of the seven founders, Emily Wright, is a mother of four; her commitment to our families is palpable.
Doterra gives back. Healing Hands is our non-profit foundation, funded by the members, employees, and executives of the company. You have an option to donate as little or as much as we wish with each order.
Oils are of the highest quality. Pure, high quality, optimally-sourced Oils are at the heart of our success. Working with smallholder farmers, they ensure that these families are able to maintain their traditions and optimize growing and harvesting practices, from cooperatives for more bargaining power, eliminate middlemen, and get paid on time. In the villages where they grow, harvest and distill the Oils, they help renovate and build schools, much-needed medical facilities, and infrastructure for clean water. As a result, the farmers are equally as committed to doterra. Visit Source to You for detailed information on sourcing, quality, and testing of our Oils, including our projects in Bulgaria, Kenya, Madagascar, Nepal, Guatemala, Haiti, Somaliland, and beyond.

Testing practices are stringent. For transparent accountability, doterra created a standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG), verified by respected third-party labs. This standard is based on stringent testing throughout the entire process, from the monitoring of soil quality to testing for chemicals and adulterants in every liter of Oil. All of the basics are checked first: sight, smell, taste, and touch. Then the lab rules out any presence of fungus, mold, pesticides, extenders, and any other contaminants. If you wish to learn more, the science of the testing practices is here.
Focus on education. On doterra's site, you'll find hundreds of hours of free education, guidance, recipes, and other support for both oil users and those building businesses. When you create your own account with my team, you'll have access to a great private educational website with archives and resources to help you learn about the Oils and grow your own thriving business if you wish. Once you've arranged your personal wholesale account here, I'll receive a notification and will email you all the access.
Doterra helps you clean your home of toxic products and chemicals. This is one of the biggest reasons I moved to doterra! Harsh, toxic chemicals have no place in your cleaning and family care. From On Guard Cleaner Concentrate, Detergent, Hand Soap, Toothpaste, Mouthwash, and bar soap to all the Oils I use to diffuse and clean the air in our home, the plant molecules provide natural protection in a non-toxic and biodegradable way, to clean and keep us safe.
Our connection to each other. I am beyond grateful to connect and partner with Elena. As we consistently connect as a team, I'm reminded of how powerful and essential it is to live a healthy life. Doterra provides so many opportunities for you to nourish your family as well as develop an incredible business for you and your tribe! Together we are empowering families to lead and learn.
