Building a doTERRA Business- Myths BUSTED!

So you’ve been wondering what it means to teach people about doTERRA….lets look at some common MYTHS that might be holding you back from taking advantage of this awesome opportunity:

MYTH: Building a doTERRA business is all consuming and you will have zero social life.

🚫 FALSE! It’s your business so you can devote as much or as little time as you want. Obviously, the more time you devote, the faster your business will grow but there are many people who simply casually share the oils in order to pay for their own purchases.
You might run your business around other work or family commitments- for me, I am a full-time mum with two young children so I work when the children are sleeping or I bring them with me. It’s a very flexible business where you set your own hours and you can work casually, part-time or even full time.

MYTH: Building a doTERRA business means you need to buy lots of oils to sell.

🚫 FALSE! The idea behind a doTERRA business is that you help people get their own account and then their oils are shipped directly to them. Other than a few “if we run out of this oil there will be a crisis” back up bottles, I don’t have a huge number of new products at my house. There is no way I would have agreed to a business if it required me to collect orders, chase money, drag two kids plus parcels into the post office…not a chance! The only requirement there is to earn a commission from doTERRA is that you do a 100PV monthly order and when you are using the oils, that is very easy to do!

MYTH: Building a doTERRA business means you must teach workshop after workshop after workshop.

🚫 FALSE! While teaching workshops are an effective way to reach a group of people, it’s up to you to decide how you want to teach people about oils. There are girls in my team who only do one on one meetings. I know people who only ever build online. If you are connecting with people, sharing the oils, helping them to get their own account and providing support…you will be successful.

MYTH: Building a doTERRA business only works if you are outgoing, confident and know everything about essential oils.

🚫 FALSE! Because a doTERRA business is so flexible, anyone can be successful at it. If you look at some of the top leaders, some of them are so shy and quiet that it’s hard to believe they lead teams of thousands of people. Am I a total oil guru? Not at all! I’m a trained preschool teacher and I’ve learned by simply using the oils and a reference book.

MYTH: Building a doTERRA business means there is a huge upfront cost, or you have to start with the biggest kit

🚫 FALSE! You don’t need every oil to have a business- in fact, I’m still not even close! You need a membership which is $35 or included free with the starter kits. You can get a starter kit for as little as $174, and this has the top 10 oils which is pretty much all you need to show others. Even to this day, I don’t bring much more than those 10 oils when I teach workshops!

MYTH: Oils can’t be stocked and sold retail by small businesses like massage therapists, health stores, hairdressers etc

🚫 FALSE! Just like everyone else a business can sign up for their own account and get a 25% discount to purchase oils to resell. I would suggest though looking at purchasing the Oil Sharing Kit which is a larger kit with multiples of popular oils as it comes with significant savings.


With everyone going crazy on social media posting their #tenyearchallenge I thought it might be a good idea to have a look at how doTERRA has grown from nothing to being a global leader.

doTERRA has growth that is on par with Apple. In only 7 years they have become a billion dollar company. In 10 years they have become the largest essential oil company in the world!

Reasons why a doTERRA business is amazing:

-You are partnering with an ethical company which has a sustainable business model.
-doTERRA uses drop shipping which means that you help people get their own accounts and then they manage their orders themselves while doTERRA ships straight to them. This means you don’t have to chase orders, or store and distribute stock.
-doTERRA is a global company so you can have team members all over the world! I have team in London, Malaysia, Sweden, New Zealand and Switzerland. Modern technology means it’s easy to connect with people everywhere, you are no longer restricted to only being involved with those in your immediate proximity.
-You are sharing life-changing products. I love knowing that every day I am helping improve the lives of my oil community.
-All the resources and training is provided to ensure that you can have a successful business. There are clear pathways to follow and if you are willing to put the effort in, you will be rewarded abundantly!
-You are creating a residual income. Not sure why this is important? Check out my live video I did talking about it at the start of January 2019.


Now instead of focusing on the past, let’s look to the future. Where do you want to be in 10 years? I know that I will be leading an amazing team of oil educators who are sharing a message of wellness and financial prosperity. If you’d like to join me, send me a message and we can get you launched to success!


Are you free? Free to do what you want? Free to buy what you want? Do you wake up every morning excited because today is another day to build your dreams….or are you stumbling around half asleep going to a job that simply pays the bills.

I love having a doTERRA business!

Time freedom: I can spend all day with my kids and work in the evenings and while they nap. I can schedule my day how I want to, if it’s hot at lunchtime then I can head to the beach for a swim. If my husband has time off work then I can join him for a holiday.

Financial freedom: Initially I just wanted to get my oils for free. Well, I’ve only ever paid for my first order! Now though I have been able to replace my previous income and instead of returning to work after maternity leave, I get to stay home with my children full time. As my team grows and we reach Diamond rank, I’m looking forward to giving my husband the option to join us at home. No longer do I have to feel guilty about “spending my husband’s money while I’m on maternity leave”.

Future freedom: I am building MY dreams. I am working to MY goals. There is literally no limit to how big I can build my business…once you hit Presidential Diamond you can start a new account and do it all over again. There are double and even triple presidential diamonds worldwide! There is no glass ceiling, no having to wait for someone else to resign for you to get the promotion. You want a pay rise? Work for it, hit the next rank, and watch that paycheck rise.

Work freedom: It is my choice how I want to teach others about oils. I do a mixture of online classes and face to face classes. I get to decide how many hours I work and what to focus on. If writing blogs is something I love doing, then I can use that as a medium to educate on oils and reach out to people. If I hate doing 1:1s because I find them intimidating, then that’s fine I can focus on doing classes instead. doTERRA has provided me with the framework of how to share about the oils, and it’s up to me how I choose to apply it to my business.

My job is so simple. I use oils. I share oils. I teach others how to do the same. If you can read from a booklet and pass around a bottle of oil, then you can be an oil educator. I don’t have any magical superpowers or huge social networks. I only moved in my area two years ago! My personal facebook page has less than 150 friends. You look at some of the top leaders and they are just normal everyday people who recognised this amazing opportunity and weren’t afraid to work for it. If you would like to teach people about oils and earn a bit of money then I am here to support you.

Are you ready to change your future? Are you ready for freedom? I am here ready to invest my time, energy and resources into helping you achieve your goals. It’s a new year, let’s make 2019 the year you said YES to SUCCESS.
