Welcome to the start of our A to Z Oil Series week!
We brought doTERRA oils into our home 3 years ago, and it was such a life changing gift. We haven't had to take our kids in for a sick visit in that many years, praise God! If you have clicked around on this website at all, you know how much of a game changer it was the first FOUR days we brought doTERRA into our home.

Soooo, when I bought oils, I thought I'd only use them when we were not feeling good, boy was I surprised to find, we could use oils everyday, in every way, in every room of our home.
Over the next week or so, I'd like to teach you a few of the ways you can do the same, Oils A-B-C style!
The FIRST thing I want to talk about is, What is an essential oil?
Watch this short 2 minute VIDEO before reading on:
doTERRA is the most tested, and the most trusted essential oil company on the market. They are 9 years old and have quickly zoomed to the #1 largest oil company in the world!
WHY? I think it boils down to 3 things: sourcing, integrity and humanitarian efforts.
doTERRA believes that wherever plants grow native, is where they are their best. They believe in responsible sourcing and thinking to the future for sustainable resources.
So instead of owning their own farms, or bringing all the crops to US soil to control the process from seed to bottle, they go over to 3rd world countries and hire local farmers to grow the crops for us. We call this Co-Impact sourcing! 85% of the farmers we work with, will only work with us, because they know we take amazing care of them and their families.
We work hard to maintain agricultural traditions, but also teach them better ways of growing. We teach them to wait for full harvest and not rush it. We pay all year long so this doesn't happen. AND, no middle men to gouge prices, we pay direct.
While we are there, doTERRA is dropping wells for villages that used to walk hours a day to find water sources, we build schools for the harvesters children, and we leave behind essential oil clinics for health and wellness.
One of my favorite videos is from when DoTERRA headed over to Nepal, as SOON as the disaster relief started, from the horrific hit they took in 2015 when several earthquakes ripped through their land. We get our Wintergreen from there.
Grab your Kleenex, and watch this short video about the beautiful people of Nepal:
doTERRA is a billion dollar, debt free company with a HUGE heart for others! You can read more about our effort in Nepal here.
Because of this heart for the hurting, we also have a Healing Hands ministry. DoTERRA partners with Operation Underground Railroad, Days for Girls and disaster relief alll over the globe.
I am so proud to represent a company, so close to my own heart and my own faith and belief in giving back, living generously and helping those in need of care.
I am really looking forward to talking oils with you this week, and sharing my love and passion for these beautiful gifts of the earth!
