Essential Oils - A Business Opportunity (it's better than you think)

This summer I joined DoTerra, a US company specialising in essential oils and natural plant based products such as skincare, hair care, supplements and cleaning products. I only wanted to order a few oils for personal use but after a few months of using the oils over the summer I realised how good they were and as I learnt about the business opportunity DoTerra offer, I got interested in maybe building a business. 

First, I want to stress that if you join DoTerra as a wholesale customer there is no pressure to sell! You can just join and buy what you want, when you want for your personal use. No minimum order requirements. You can find out more about why I chose DoTerra and how I use oils here. 

But if you'd like to earn some money, you have the opportunity and today I'd like to talk more about that. 

There are two ways of making some money with DoTerra - you can become a 'sharer' or a 'builder'. 

A sharer is someone who loves the oils and other DoTerra products and uses them regularly. She tells her friends and family about how well they're working and they decide to join DoTerra. She can then earn commission on their orders. You can use your commission to buy more products for yourself.

If you enrol under me and share oils with your friends and they sign up then I will help you support them and I will provide training in how they can use their oils and get the most of their membership.

If you'd like to earn more money and build a proper business then DoTerra has a great support system to help you. There is a set business plan you can follow to build your business. We will provide you with a step by step plan to follow.

You will teach people about how to use essential oils and Doterra's other wellness products via one to one meetings or by teaching classes (in person or online). There are sample scripts, class plans and handouts available. All you need to do is get some friends together, follow the sample class script and answer their questions. If you live locally to me, I will help you get started and I can even teach a few classes for you.

You don't need to have any prior knowledge about essential oils. DoTerra has a ton of information on their website and there are two excellent books - The Essential Life and Modern Essentials (I've linked to one retailer for each book but they are for sale in a variety of places so just search online for each title and choose a company local to you) - which we recommend. Modern Essentials also have an app.

We encourage DoTerra customers to become their own wellness experts. We show them how to research essential oils, where to find information and help them choose oils and products that suit their needs.

We have two brilliant Facebook groups run by Tara Swiger (who enrolled me) and Leonie Dawson (who enrolled Tara). They are both experienced business women and these two groups provide a ton of training and are dedicated to helping you succeed and build your DoTerra business.

There is also an e-course available which will walk you through how to build a business as a DoTerra Wellness Advocate. I will also mentor you and support you as you build your business.

DoTerra is a network marketing/multi level marketing company and I must admit I've always steered clear of these types of companies but  I quickly learnt that DoTerra is different. There is so much help and support available and such a community and team spirit. The commission structure is very generous too. 

I'm just starting my journey building my DoTerra business. I've seen how these oils and other products have helped me feel more energetic, sleep better and cut down on painkillers for my chronic back/neck pain.

Anyone can build a DoTerra business but I'm specifically looking for 2-3 people who would love to build a DoTerra business to join me in building a team. You can live anywhere in the world. The only requirement to start with is that you've either already joined DoTerra under me or will be joining and that you've not been working with another DoTerra leader.

Does this sound like something you would like to do? E-mail me so we can have a no obligation chat about it on or if you're ready to enrol, you  can enrol here. If you just want to use the oils for your own benefit, then enrol as a Wholesale Customer and if you'd like to share oils with your friends or build a business, enrol as a Wellness Advocate (don't worry if you choose the wrong option, we can change it later). Please note that if you wish to enrol with a kit that costs over £200 then you will need to enrol as a wholesale customer but you can upgrade (at no extra cost) to a Wellness Advocate after a week.

If you live in Devon or Cornwall in the UK, I'd love to meet up with you. If you can get 3-4 friends together (or more) I'm happy to come to your home (or we can meet at a local coffee shop) to teach you and your friends about essential oils, how to use them and the DoTerra business opportunity. Just e-mail me.

If you live in south east Cornwall or south or west Devon, we can meet up for a coffee and a chat about essential oils or you can come to one of my classes which I will be holding regularly starting in December - e-mail me for details (

To start building your business, the only requirement is that you enrol - you can either enrol with a starter kit - there's a choice to suit various budgets - or just pay the £20/US $35 enrolment fee and then add any oils or other products that you want to get started with. 

Once you start sharing oils with your friends or teaching classes, then it is helpful to have more oils and also to have tried other DoTerra products so you can talk to people from your own experience but you can purchase these products when you can afford them. You don't have to spend hundreds of pounds to start this business.

Does this sound like something you want to do? Contact me on or sign up now
If you're ready to get started with DoTerra, you can sign up for a wholesale membership here. If you'd like to find out more about what's involved in a wholesale membership, just e-mail me on
