I know, I hear it all the time...
"I can get that Frankincense oil at the drug store for way less than doTERRA offers it for." Really?
"If it says 100% essential oil then it's gotta be true." Not true.
"Going to the store and picking up a few oils is much easier than going through one of you crazy ladies." Have you met me yet?
I once asked those same questions...coming from a gal that participated in other pushy network marketing companies I was a HARD NO when I found out doTERRA essential oils followed that same annoying structure. I give my Aunt K a big high five for giving me the confidence to say YES one more time...but just yes to being a "user." (So I thought!)
You see, doTERRA was pretty smart when using a network marketing model to get oils into every home. They equip their advocates with impeccable product resources so we can share accurate information all over the world. You don't see the "hey, go sell some shiz" approach. You see the, "hey, here's super transparent information and documentation on lavender. Try using it this way for yourself, and if you feel inclined to share it, we fully support you" approach. It's so different than the norm and I'm actually IN LOVE with sharing oils from a network marketing stand point...here's why...how often can you go to the drug store and be met with a mom with a baby on her hip sharing with you all the ways you can use Lavender, what the safety precautions are, offering a sample, then following up with you to see how it worked before you purchased it...NEVER! That's what doTERRA (and I) can offer you!
I don't knock mamas who buy oils at the drug store...trust me...but I just feel they haven't met the right person to truly teach them the most safe and effective ways to use them. So to address the above questions...YES, oils are much cheaper at the drug store, but if you think for one second you're getting Frankincense from Somalia, of which, is the birth place of Frank and where it contains the most beneficial properties...you'll be disappointed. If you think for a second that $4.99 Frankincense oils has been put through rigorous testing to make sure there are not additives that could harm your babe...you'll be disappointed. If you think for a second that guy stocking the shelves will accept your Facebook message at 11pm to help you with application methods...you'll be disappointed. Getting it cheaper is great, but getting it so cheap that properties are false and education is non-existent is a total waste of time and money. Look at labels closely, if something says 100% essential oils, and can not prove to you how that is true, they might just be avoiding litigation for usage-gone-wrong by following the rules and only CONTAINING some constituents that may be as they say. In other words...because the FDA doesn't govern essential oils...all that bottle has to do is CONTAIN a smidge of "real" oil to not be lying to you....FLABBERGASTING right?
I can tell you that doTERRA oils are priced according to the work and product that goes into that bottle. DoTERRA, and you, support communities all over there world who still own their own farms, generation after generation, to produce the safest and most effective essential oils on the planet. To learn more about that, go to www.sourcetoyou.com.
I can tell you that that ALL of our oils go through rigorous testing, of which, is all available to you by flipping over your bottles and taking those unique ID numbers and plugging them in to www.sourcetoyou.com. You can find more extensive information on www.doterra.com as well.
I can ABSOLUTELY tell you that if you message me at 11pm because your babe is having a fit and can't calm down to catch his breath...I WILL help you Johnny on the spot! I will show you how to get the most bang for your buck and not hound you about your monthly order. (Did you know we don't require monthly orders? That IS a misconception I can crush if you'll allow me). I will support you in any way that I can based on your individual needs because you are a unique individual and do not deserve to be treated as a number and a dollar.
You get my drift...we're different!
So if you've been wanting to try essential oils, but lost on where to start, who to talk to, who to trust...I ask that you trust me! I mean, I'm kinda just a mom who looses her shiz once and a while, who lives on a ranch amongst the cow patties with a hunky cowboy husband and two little boys....but that makes me normal, just like you. The only thing that makes us different is that I've been using essential oils effectively for the last 5 years and I'll share everything I know with you.
Mmmmmmkay....I'll start you off with no less than 25% off and a super secret special gift from myself.
