How do I purchase doTERRA essential oils?

Quite simple, just follow this Link to get started.

Do I have to live in Edmonton?

That’s a negative 😊. doTERRA is a global company and with the beauty of technology we can set up a face-face meeting online to get you started or to book your complimentary wellness consult.  Go here to book.

What is a wholesale membership?

A wholesale membership is like a Costco membership. By purchasing an annual $42 CAN/ $35 US membership you will have access to all doTERRA’s products at wholesale costs which is a savings of 25%. This does not mean you are signing up to do doTERRA as a business. ***When setting up your first order the membership is referred to the Essential Oil Usage Guide.

What is the difference between retail, wholesale membership and wellness advocate accounts?

Getting a wholesale account is the best way to start. You can opt out of purchasing the membership but you will not save 25%. If you spend $168 in one year on oils, the membership will pay for itself. A wellness advocate account is the choice you want to make if you would like to build a doTERRA business. If this is something that interests you then I recommend reaching out to me first so I can share with you in more detail what that looks like.

What oils should I start with?

The getting started page will help you answer this question in more detail but I always highlight the benefits of getting started with one of doTERRA’s enrollment kits. There are different ones for different needs and different budgets. They also include the membership for free and the products have a larger discount than the wholesale discount. You can also create your own kit by selecting the membership (referred to as the Essential Oil Usage Guide) and add on whatever products you like.

What is an LRP?

Well let me ask you if you like free stuff. LRP refers to our Loyalty Rewards Program which is a program that provides free product credits for monthly purchases ordered on the program. As a participant in the Loyalty Rewards Program, you will immediately begin to earn product credits that can be used as cash to purchase doTERRA products. The longer you participate, the more credits you can earn—up to 30% of your total monthly Loyalty Rewards purchases! You can learn more here https://www.doterra.com/US/en/common-questions-doterra-loyalty-rewards-program-q-&-a

Do I have to order monthly?

Totally up to you. If you choose to set up an LRP you can cancel at any time. Consecutive monthly orders will earn you a higher LRP %. As soon as you cancel your LRP your free product earning % will go back to 10%.

Can I host a class so that myself and my friends can learn more?

Abso-freakin-lutely! And I would be more than happy to teach it. Together we will pick a date and time, you invite the peeps, supply the snacks (if you want) and I do the rest. This will depend if you live in the Edmonton area. However, if you don’t and I happen to be travelling in your area than I would love to stop by! If in the Edmonton area you can choose to host in the comfort of your own home or at my workshop space right here in Edmonton.

Are all essential oils pure?

There are no current regulatory standards for essential oils. It is up to the individual companies to perform internal and external testing to ensure they sell the purest of essential oils. According to APRC 95% of essential oil companies sell adulterated oils. Without an accepted standard for essential oil quality as consumers we need to be proactive in researching the company before purchasing from them.

Why should I purchase doTERRA and not the cheaper drugstore brands?

You can be confident that doTERRA essential oils are the highest quality on the market. DoTERRA performs a total of 54 tests on every oil. Forty-three are performed by doTERRA’s science team and 11 are performed through an external, unbiased company. doTERRA is so confident in the quality of their oils that they post all the results of their tests on the website, www.sourcetoyou.com. As noted above 95% of oils on the market today sell adulterated products. Whatever company you choose to purchase from, I strongly recommend researching them first. If you are wanting to use essential oils for their medicinal properties, they need to be of the purest quality. Otherwise you could be utilizing a product that has artificial ingredients, fragrances, chemicals and non-aromatic compounds which can result in negative side effects and unsatisfactory results.

What makes an essential oil pure and therapeutic?

The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. An essential oil that isn’t pure means you run the risk of putting germs, heavy metals, or adulterants onto or into your body, which can provoke irritation, adverse effects, or even sickness. Without an accepted standard for essential oil quality, doTERRA created its own testing process, calling it CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. The CPTG process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in their essential oils that would reduce their efficacy. doTERRA even goes a step further, putting all their products and the packaging through a battery of tests to ensure a long and effective shelf-life. This protocol ensures potency, purity, and consistency batch to batch.  Proper methods of growing, harvesting, and distilling are also crucial to maintaining purity. When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy.

Are doTERRA oils organic?

doTERRA sources their oils all over the world and organic certifications vary from country to country, therefore attaining an organic certification would be impossible if the country where the farm is doesn’t have a certification program. To ensure our oils are of the highest quality, DoTERRA created their own standards that exceed organic status. They ensure that the farms where they source their oils use the most ethical and sustainable practices. Their rigorous testing also allows them to be completely free of chemical residue.

Does doTERRA carry more than essential oils?

They sure do! They have a large selection of natural, toxin-free products that can replace numerous house-hold products. I get it, not everyone is a DIY expert but let me assure you most recipes are very simple. However, if you just don’t have time or desire to make your own you can choose from products such as cleaning solutions, toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, skincare, body care, laundry detergent and supplements.

What are the main ways to use essential oils?

There are 3 main ways to essential oils, aromatically, topically and internally. Each form of use has their own purposes. You can learn more here, https://www.doterra.com/US/en/using-essential-oils

How should I store my essential oils?

Essential oils are temperature, oxygen and light sensitive. They are best stored away from direct sunlight with a tightly secured cap. Improper storage can influence the lifespan of the oil.  I store mine in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom and drawers all over the house.

Will I gain superpowers from using essential oils?

I can never guarantee results but these lil bottles certainly have some incredible benefits.
