My sister, Emili, invited me to a meeting in February of 2009, to learn about a new company called doTERRA, selling essential oils. Just the previous month, I had dropped a wad of money buying essential oils from my midwife for my emergency preparedness cabinet.
Essential oils have a pretty long shelf life if they are protected from heat, oxygen and light. So I figured it would be a good investment. With the economy the way it is, I wanted to be prepared with effective tools with which to care for my family.
So I was sitting in this meeting listening to them tell me how great their oils were. From what I knew and the way they smelled, I figured they were high quality.
It was their supplements that really caught my attention. I had been researching antioxidant drinks and comparing ORAC scores, so I was familiar with some of the numbers they were using. I was impressed with their antioxident supplement, as its potency was higher than the others’ I had been considering. The vitamin/mineral product looked awesome as it is completely plant-based with no synthetics (like most you find at the grocery store).
The omega oil formula impressed me. It is half land based (seeds, etc) and half water based (fish), but it actually contains essential oils! I had used enteric coated peppermint oil caps in the past and knew they worked really well for digestion, but I had never seen a product like this.
I wasn’t ready for a membership, but I bought 2 supplement packs on the spot. I took them home and started taking them. I liked them. I had good energy taking them, and I knew I was getting the elements I wanted in my diet.
I started using the new oils little by little. I came to love the blends and smells. I started to share them with my friends. My company’s educational materials are beautiful and plentiful. This made it really easy for me to share and educate others. Now I’ve gained much more experience and knowledge about the high quality of certain oils.
