Did you know?
+ Essential oils are 50-70 times more potent than dried or fresh herbs.

Where did it all begin?
At the end of last year my little boy (who was 3 or so months old) was sick with a cold (snotty nose, coughing etc). As he was SO little he was too young for any pharmaceuticals and panadol was pretty much it (doesn’t do squat for a cold or chest infection does it?!). So I toddled off to my local Health Food Store (being the organic loving freak that I am) in search for some natural options. A few hundred bucks later I walked out with an Ultrasonic Diffuser (the AromaBloom from Lively Living are the bomb!!) and some essential oils. It was here that I found dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Essential Oils.
The really exciting thing about dōTERRA is that they aren’t available in stores but through people like me, who are a dōTERRA Wellness Advocates. What this means is that you purchase through someone like me, and then I provide you with lots of love and support to ensure you know how to use them and get the most out of them.
We at dōTERRA pride ourselves in producing the most purest essential oils on the market. We grow and source all of our own oils in their indigenous environment. We have some beautiful programs like Co-Impact Sourcing (where we have co-operatives with communities) and Source to You not to mention our Healing Hands Foundation.
In a 15ml bottle of essential oil you will find 250 drops and the best thing is that you only need 1-2 drops per use.
What oils do I use and how often?
Every. Single. Day.! No joke … by 10am I have usually used at least 5 oils (sometimes more).
From Lavender Peace for sleep, Lavender for teething, Tea Tree for sinus/ear yukkies, Grapefruit and Whisper for my perfume (or Passion or Peace or Hope…), On Guard to build our immunity up before winter hits, Frankincense for my stretch marks and scars, Elevation and Wild Orange for my mood, Peppermint to get you really buzzing or Ice Blue to loosen any neck tension man I could go on for hours! There are SO many oils and all of them have SO many uses. In fact, dōTERRA source and produce a combination of over 100 oils in both single oils and blends!!
What benefits have I noticed?
I am sleeping better (hello lavender!)
I FEEL better (thank you Mr Diffuser, LLV and Balance)
I am not a moody biatch as often (obviously I still get moody but now I have my trusty oils to turn to #hellooclarysage)
I can now make my own cleaning and skin care products with oils that have amazing therapeutic qualities and I know EXACTLY whats in them #cheapaschips
I having a natural and safe option to TURN to 24/7
I am building and strengthening my system and immunity before sickness strikes (winter is coming people)
I am able to support friends and family with any ailments or amazing presents/gifts
If you are just a little bit curious, the dōTERRA Australian Product Guide lists all their available oils (and other products) in Oz and current prices.
So WHY dōTERRA?
I love dōTERRA because each essential oil is carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. You can search each batch number to view the results which I find just so amazing – no hidden nasties, no chemicals, no fillers and no secrets just pure therapeutic grade oil! When you crack open a bottle of Lavender or Wild Orange it is like NOTHING ELSE – you immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade dōTERRA essential oils.
In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils dōTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to dōTERRA’s oil production. Hell yes!!! doTERRA sources its oils from over 40 countries (including Australia). dōTERRA has introduced an initiative called Cō-Impact Sourcing to ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically (umm another hell yes!!).
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. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.
Humanitarian Partnerships & Charitable Organisations
As if you need to hear any more reasons why doTERRA is amazing, but their charitable organisation, the Healing Hands Foundation, provides funding and resources to create community-based, social-impact projects to improve lives in the larger communities where oils are sourced. Past projects include building or sponsoring existing medical clinics, installing drinking water and irrigation systems, building schools, and providing other educational resources such as vocational training programs.
The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ partners with Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R. Rescue) to bring healing and hope to the world. O.U.R. Rescue exists to rescue children from sex trafficking by utilizing some of the world’s experts in extraction operations and anti-child trafficking efforts. Stop it now – honestly this SOLD me given what I do for a living. The children rescued from these extraction efforts are then rehabilitated through an aftercare program, and the perpetrators are arrested, tried, and convicted to ensure that they don’t traffic children again.
Want to know more?
Please get in touch with me as I would LOVE to talk you through some options and what might best suit your needs. You do NOT need every oil to start with, in fact it’s better you get a few to learn how to use and then build from there. The Home Essentials Kit is the BEST place to start though. Head here to grab some oils and start your journey …
