10 Reasons I chose DoTERRA and 2 Reasons I Almost Didn't


If you've read my first DoTERRA blog post then you know I've added oils to my life and my business. You can read all about how I'm incorporating them into my coaching business HERE.

There are a ton of reasons why I decided to join DoTERRA but first, you must know this isn't my first MLM. A year ago I joined Monat and did nothing with the business side of it. I LOVE my Monat shampoo. I've tossed my hair extensions and am now sporting my shoulder length natural locks thanks to these products. Business wise though I could not find the link to my coaching business and sharing these products. It just didn't work for me to say go after your dreams, start your coaching business, here are all the tools you need and by the way here is some fantastic shampoo- LETS ROLL! 

Know that I still use Monat every day and will continue to do so but for me, it was not a smart business move as another stream of income. MANY of my friends and fellow online entrepreneurs are doing amazing and making millions of dollars with this company but I wanted a company that I could easily incorporate every day.

So let's get into the good stuff because if you're looking to join DoTERRA you might be wondering about a few of these things.

10 Reasons I Joined DoTERRA

1. The Oils.

Plain and Simple these are the highest grade oils out there. For example, the oils I was previously using were from Amazon. They say Premium Therapeutic Grade on the label, however, one drop on the tongue says otherwise. It's like licking a Win-dex bottle..all chemical. If an essential oil is, in fact, pure it should taste like the tree, plant, or fruit it came from. I put this oils in my water, on my body, in my food..all over really.  

2. My spiritual practice

I've always been a spiritual person. I grew up in a church that used oil to anoint. I started incorporating it into my meditations by using Frankincense. I had read that this oil can elevate you in your spiritual practice. And WOW just WOW. First of all, smell is one of the most powerful senses. I can smelly my grandmother and her Oil of Olea by just thinking about it. If you want to get rid of a feeling or enhance something that you want then incorporating an oil that can aid in that will help you see a difference. 


3. How I'm incorporating it into my business

If you read my first blog on DoTERRA you know that I'm not going to post a million sale post on my Facebook. I'm not asking family or friends to join me. WHY? Because this is a business. It's about sharing a product I love and use every day. It's not about signing up a bunch of people to my team. and let's be real I don't want to start a business with friends and family. I want a business with other go getter women! 

4. Healing Hands.

DoTerra has their own foundation called Healing Hands. this foundation brings healing and hope to the world by providing global communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant.  Meaning those areas where the oils are harvested are being taught how use their resources to become self-reliant. HELLO BIZ OWNERS. That means the farmer that's farming the lemon oil is not only providing DoTERRA with the oil that you so love but it's also providing jobs, digging wells, building schools, and employing locals.

So amazing!

5.Sex trafficking

This is near and dear to my heart. The city I live in that's young and fun and cute is a hub for sex trafficking because of the international airport. One of my favourite speakers of all time, Christine Cane is an advocate of stopping Sex trafficking. Her program A21 Campaign is one that's I've followed for years. When I joined DoTERRA I was happy to learn that they partner with organizations, through Healing Hands, to abolish child sex trafficking. 

with Operation Underground Railroad (OUR Rescue) to bring healing and hope to the world. OUR Rescue exists to rescue children from sex trafficking by utilizing some of the world’s experts in extraction operations and anti-child trafficking efforts. 

OUR Rescue’s Jump Team, consisting of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives, lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts to rescue children being trafficked for sex. To ensure perpetuity and sustainability of these extraction efforts, OUR Rescue works with law enforcement in the countries where they rescue children to ensure that everything is done legally and with the support of the local authorities.

6. Being my most healthy

Design Your Life is all about creating your best life ever. A big part of that is putting good wholesome foods and products in and on your body.  I mean do I need to say anymore about healthy living?

7. The cost to start

You can start as low as $36USD. This is probably the smallest fee to join an MLM you'll ever find. Or you can choose from multiple starter kits. There are choices and who doesn't love choices!

8. The product is consumable

This isn't just for those in DoTERRA but for anyone interested in joined an MLM. Your product MUST be consumable. Meaning people need to use it all up and want to buy more for a long long time. That equals lifelong clients and more money HEY!

9. The compensation plan

The comp plan for DoTERRA is by far the easiest one I've ever seen. I will be talking about this in a future blog so stay tuned. The basics are that DoTERRA chose to pay on a unilevel plan. This means that Each builder is paid on individual levels.

The structure is very important. The placement of individuals in your downline is key. Good news you get to decide where people are placed in your downline!! For me this is great because I don't want to just build my own team, I'm building a business where those that partner with me can benefit from it are now put out on their own.

Requirements for rank and bonuses are based on OV (team volume) and width. 

There are no limits on width or depth, but you are only paid on a limited number of levels (seven in doTERRA).

10. The opportunity for Coaches

Majority of people in the coaching industry are woo woo or already lead a healthy spiritual life. I for one believe in multiple streams of income. That one thing that all successful people have in common. Doterra is a product and a business model that can easily be incorporated into your existing business. I'm proof of that right here.

2 Reasons I almost didn't join DOTERRA

1. MLM

DoTERRA is a network marketing business or MLM. This has some negativity associated around it. in the past couple of years, it's gotten better. I for one had to look past that and ask myself do I want to make money, help people, and build a team or do I want to be scared and let others hold me back. 

2. LRP

I'll admit this one almost had me running for the hills. The doTERRA Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP) 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!

LRP also sets you up for being able to receive more commissions when you start receiving them. in order to get the product credits and future commisions, you do have to spend a minimum on product each month.

Honestly, I thought about it and you're going to want all the products anyway. Especially if you're going to use my method of growing your business which is social media attraction marketing.  If I'm not going to spend money on the products how can I ever expect anyone else to? Am I right!

Hopefully, this eased some questions or things you've been feeling about joining. Let me know in the comments if you have others you'd like to add.
