My favourite thing to do is introduce people to essential oils.
Mother Nature creates these pure extracts from plants – the bark, resin, leaves, flowers – as a form of immune system for the plant itself and we can then benefit from using them on or around our own body to protect, support, and enhance ourselves physically, emotionally, spiritually and environmentally.
One of the questions I get asked the most is:
‘I have my oils, now what?’.
OR this one:
‘I want to purchase oils but I am not sure what to do after I get them!?’
Most companies have their own websites where you can search by specific oil or blend for some additional info on that oil, but it’s all of the additional extra Q’s you may have that I am here to help you with. This includes companion products, resources and literature and even a few free eBooks and guides to help you out.
My worst nightmare is your oils aren’t getting used, which means you aren’t experiencing their incredible value.
150 Uses for the Home Essentials Kit: Absolutely start here if you have just picked yourself up the doTERRA Home Essentials Kit (or the Essentials Collection).
This resource list provides you with everything you need to know to get started using the ten oils every home should have regardless of their wants or needs. The ‘Home Essentials Kit (Or the Essentials Kit), has 6 single oils and 4 of the most popular blends we create as well as a diffuser.
Modern Essentials App: I can’t speak highly enough of this app. Anybody that invests in purchasing pure therapeutic grade essential oils needs to have this app in their pocket. It’s $11, which isn’t cheap by ‘App’ standards, however you will use it every day and it will never cost you another cent.
If you’re unsure of who to support an ailment, body system or to benefit your body or emotion, you need only to search within the app by ailment, body system, or emotion and see the oils that will be beneficial for that.
For instance: When a friend of ours had a child turned one, I searched for ‘crying baby’ and found that gentle oils such as yang ylang, geranium, lavender and frankincense were wonderful supports, and was able to make to gentle and well diluted blend for that child to roll under his feet (Modern Essentials App also helps in dilution quantities and application methods which is so good for the risk adverse!)
When one of my own daughters got sick in the tummy, I was able to search the app and make a blend up based on the results from that and their ages. You can see the blog post of exactly how I did this here.
I’ve even used it to formulate a blend for a woman who was struggling to get her mojo back with her husband after they had their third child and I heard back from here that the oils recommended and that I blended from the app were highly successful! 😉
Modern Essentials Book: You can also purchase the Modern Essentials Book, which is a tomb of information and a wonderful resource to keep in the home and grow your knowledge. It is a little heavy to pop in your handbag and is around $35 + p&h.

Emotions and Essential Oils Book
I rely heavily on the Modern Essentials App for quick references, though it is this amazing book I look to when I want to support my emotions or look for ideas to support those around me in a similar way.
Essential oils are widely used for their physical health benefits, but few have understood the scope of their healing capabilities. In Emotions & Essential Oils, essential oils are introduced as powerful emotional healers. This groundbreaking book bridges the gap between the physical and emotional aspects of essential oils and creates a user-friendly guide for taking charge of your emotional health. Each oil is written about with profound insight and understanding of its innate properties and gifts, and the result is as poetic as it is practical.
Each oil lists positive emotions and negative emotions attached to each oil. I personally find it interesting to inhale the aroma of an oil and wonder how I feel about that oil and then look to the ‘emotion’ it supports, read the text, and see how I can relate this to my current life circumstance.
I know many people who use this book to create aromatic anchors for themselves. This can be done by choosing a single oil based on its emotional support value, such as Wild Orange Oil for abundance, or creating a specific blend, such as Lavender – the oil of communication – & Frankincense – the oil of truth and light – for using before they have important family

Blending and DYI: If you are anything like me, you’re going to want to start blending and diluting your oils into rollers, bottles and spritzers, or even make your own skincare or personal care products.
For high quality amber glass rollers, bottles and smaller spray bottles, I use packmyproduct.com.au because their delivery time and service is so great. You can order a box of rollers and have them on your doorstep 48 hours later.
Here’s some other options:
- Aus au.Aromatools.com is also a great place to purchase rollers/bottles and more in Australia.
- US AromaTools.com
- Europe eu.Aromatools.com
You can also purchase rollers and bottles off eBay, though I have found that some sold on eBay are a little flimsier. I won’t link to them here.

What is the Loyalty Rewards Program?
doTERRA Incentivise those of us who want to place a small monthly order by gifting us points ‘pv’ to spend on free oils. It’s an incredibly generous program. You can cancel it at any time with a phone-call.
There’s no minimum monthly spend, no contracts, and you’re in complete control of whatever it is you want to order. (the doc below explains how I use it). Most people using the LRP are customers who are replacing oils they use the most, growing their collection or buying their ‘monthly use’ household and care items from doTERRA and reaping the benefits of points for free oils along the way. (doTERRA sell laundry concentrate, cleaning concentrate, toothpaste, etc).
Here is a 2 minute video that elegantly explains the Loyalty Rewards Program
Also, here is a document I created that will walk you through the value I see in it and how to set it up step by step with pictures. OR here is a tutorial in the doTERRA university to show you how to set up your LRP.
If you are yet to purchase your essential oils and you want to! Then you can do so here. Please note that who you purchase through is who will be your line of support.
So if you’re already engaged/in communication with another Wellness Advocate, you can head to them and let them know you’re ready to buy and they will help you!
‘Enrolling’ with doTERRA simply means you purchase your first oils by creating a doTERRA ‘membership’ and get WHOLESALE prices (without having to buy wholesale quantities of oils).
This gives you a minimum of 25% off EVERYTHING you purchase from doTERRA in the next 12 months. I like to call you a ‘dIP’ (doTERRA Important Person). There’s no contracts, no minimum monthly order, no expectation to share the oils like I do. You’re literally one loved-up little oils using bunny! (Over 80% of our customer base is this).
Plus – and though I don’t expect this to happen because the oils are THAT good – if you decided never to purchase again… that’s totally cool! We won’t kneecap you. You’re free to do as you please.
You can purchase your membership for $35 (like Costco) and then reap that minimum 25% off everything you order (even purchasing 3-4 oils when you enrol will absorb that membership $ as you’ll be saving OVER that $35 with the 25% off!).
You can make your first purchase ANY enrolment kit and it ‘waives’ that $35 membership. Yippiiieeeee!
What does ‘pv’ mean?
Every doTERRA product has a ‘pv’ which stands for ‘product value’ or ‘points value’.
It helps us to even out the global value of the goods. For instance, the ‘Essentials Collection’ is $174 and has a 113pv.
Or a bundle of ‘hormone’ oils: Geranium, Fennel, Clary Sage and Clary Calm has a combined pv of 118pv.
Here is the product guide/price list so you can see all of the doTERRA oils and products. You’ll note the amazing difference between wholesale and retail prices (remember you’ll only be paying wholesale).
There is a column that says ‘PV’. THAT is what we base the ‘pv’ metric off.
It’s always your choice to grow a conscious business.
Most people who purchase their doTERRA oils remain loyal loved-up customers.
Over 80% of our database don’t choose to share the oils or grow a business by partnering with doTERRA and that is totally fine! We love our customers!
However for those that do want to host classes and share their love of the oils there is a wonderful opportunity to:
- Earn your oils for free/supplement your income
- Create a financially abundant business simply by sharing the oils with others and changing lives. (That’s what I do!)
When you purchased/purchase, you will be connected with that person that you purchase with. They will he your first point of contact in introducing you to the oils and the business opportunity.
If that person isn’t interested in delving into that side of the business, then I assure you that someone else in your wider doTERRA team will be there and willing to help you grow your opportunity. The leaders in this business are wonderful and it’s theirs (and my) key goal to help you be successful.
There will be team training, Facebook groups, business training and personal support for you from someone in your team. To find out who this is, I recommend the following.
- If you’re already a customer, head to your ‘back office’ here, > Click TEAM tab > on the left hand side click UPLINE LISTING > then look for your closest SILVER or GOLD upline listing. Reach out to them and explain you would like to grow your business. They will help you understand what they can ‘plug you into’ in regards to training and support!
Enjoy your oils!
You’re in the right place!
