My Essential Oils Journey
Love at first sniff
I was not consciously looking for natural solutions when I found dōTERRA...maybe it found me? However I found myself at an essential oils class and was totally blown away when I experienced them first hand and learnt about all of the ways they could be used to support myself and my family in living a more balanced life.
One thing I have always known for sure is that ALL disharmony and imbalance in the body has an emotional component at its core and what I had been looking for and not found until this moment was a method for supporting myself on an emotional level....here it was!
Fast forward three years and I have so much gratitude that these beautiful gifts of the earth came into my life. They have settled my children in the middle of the night, given us comfort when we are not feeling our best, eased aching hearts during troubled times, lifted a heavy mood, helped shift out old generational and childhood trauma, spiced up my food, cleaned my house and in so may ways lifted my vibration.
It wasn't long before I started sharing them and this unfolded organically. Every friend or family member that came over asked what that amazing smell was. Oils would be shared and rollerball bottles mixed up over a cuppa and before long, all my friends and family were enjoying using essential oils too. "Surely everyone needs these?" I thought.
I went to a presentation which outlined the amazing dōTERRA business opportunity and thought the numbers looked too good to be true. After looking around on the internet and facebook, I found SO many amazing success stories of ordinary people who had done extraordinary things with their dōTERRA business. Having watched my parents struggle financially for so many years, I decided that I wanted to start planning for my future and working towards a pipeline of residual income that could set my kids up and also allow me to get out there and do my 'soul work' by helping others.
The more I learnt about what the oils could do for others that were struggling, the more I loved my dōTERRA business. Getting those messages of heartfelt thanks are so, so rewarding - more so than any commission payment. The more corporate events I attended, the more I realised that this was a company like no other: successful, full of heart, a true kaitiaki of the planet, sustainable, honest, integral, heart centred and ALL about giving back and making a meaningful difference in the world. I wanted in! I am beyond proud to be affiliated with such a conscious business and super grateful for the opportunity to expand myself, my team of soul sistars and all the beautiful people on our tribe who shop through us.
