An Accidental Blessing
I stumbled upon dōTERRA Essential Oils completely by accident. At the beginning of October, 2015 I was invited by a friend of a friend to one of those online Facebook parties everyone is always having these days. A type of online party used for sales or to share information about a product you want to share with others. The day of the party was right around the time we adopted our foster pup, Lilly and I had been sick for almost two months with a cough I could not get rid of. Needless to say, the fact the party was online and I could be at home in my pj's was probably the only way I was going to be involved.
I was short on time that night, so I didn't really participate in any of the discussions going on during the actual party. I may have caught the end of it, but I was able to go back and read everything people had been sharing during the party. I was interested, but did not have any energy left to even think about anything at the time. The party host reached out to me via personal message. I was so tired and I probably even came across a bit rude and just said something like, "I don't have any time for anything right now, our entire family including the dog is sick."
What happened next has truly changed my life. The party host, someone I had never even spoken to before in my entire life asked me what our symptoms were. I briefly explained, and what she did next was one of the nicest things a stranger has ever done. She asked for my address and she dropped off some dōTERRA essential oil samples in my mailbox for our family. She brought samples of two different dōTERRA essential oil blends, as well as a little roller-ball bottle with a custom blend of lavender, peppermint and lemon that is known to help with seasonal discomfort and promote a healthy respiratory system. I used all of the oils for the next couple of days. My respiratory distress had improved, my airways were open and my eyes were clear and free from that itching feeling. By the third day, I was hooked. I wanted to place an order for the exact oils she had given me.
Instead of ordering as a regular customer and paying full retail prices, she explained how I could purchase oils at wholesale prices. Wholesale pricing is 25% off of retail! That is a HUGE savings. I started out by ordering a little starter kit called the Family Physician's Kit (now known as the Family Essentials Kit). The kit came with 10 oils and a couple of other items. I can honestly say these oils have changed my life. My entire household has benefited from them. I'm using them every single day. We've used them for head and stomach discomfort, respiratory issues, cleaning, laundry, massage, etc.
So many things! People come to my house and ask about them. I can't order things fast enough. Even my father in law ordered some! I did not go into this with any intention of becoming an advocate of dōTERRA essential oils. I definitely did not think other people would be coming to me asking about them.
I have been reviewing products, writing blog posts and sharing both the good and the bad about things I've tried and loved, liked or not liked for several years. Companies send me things at no charge to review. So, when I say I have tried these in my own home, on my son, husband, mom, etc. you can trust that they are something I truly believe every family should have in their arsenal.
