Essential Oil Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do you use essential oils?
- Aromatically – Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways in our body. Breathing in a pure essential oil by way of diffusing, can purify the air, promote emotional benefits to our body, and eliminate odors and airborne pathogens.
- Topically – doTERRA oils have an immediate, localized benefit by restoring or calming our body. The chemical structure of essential oils allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body.
- Internally – doTERRA oils can be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. Some oils have powerful antioxidant properties. Some help support healthy inflammatory response in cells (Do not use an essential oil internally that does NOT have the appropriate dietary supplement facts on its label – doTERRA oils do!).
Why are doTERRA oils more expensive than some other brands that you can buy at the store?
But when it comes to essential oils, you get what you pay for. Most store-bought essential oils are not put through the testing like doTERRA oils are. Plus, there usually is a warning on the label not to take them internally. No, thank you! When I buy essential oils, I want to get the full therapeutic benefit from them. I love them so much that I have become a distributor for them, not to try to SELL and make money from them (however that is a huge benefit), but I wanted the steep discount that comes with being a Wellness Advocate and I wanted to be able to recommend the best quality oils to all of you.
What do I gain by becoming a member? Is there a monthly order minimum?
So much! For starters, you get 25% off of retail pricing. You are also able to earn free products through our Loyalty Reward Program. Every month doTERRA offers a free product of the month, and several times per year they offer huge product promotions. You also earn 100% of your shipping costs back through loyalty rewards and 10-30% back in product points to spend how you choose. When you join my team, you get access to our exclusive “28 Day New Member Course”, you are included in tons of team only giveaways, and you get non-stop training and support.
Is there a monthly order minimum?
Nope. You do not need to have a monthly order to benefit from being a Wholesale Member or a retail customer.
I don’t really want to sell essential oils. Do I have to sell doTERRA products to be a Wholesale Customer?
Of course not! Actually, when you sign up to be a Wholesale Customer you get all the benefits of a Wellness Advocate but you can not sell oils.
What is the difference between a Wholesale Customer and a Wellness Advocate?
Great question! Wholesale Customers get all the great benefits that Wellness Advocates get, but they do not have the option to sell. So when you sign up for a Wholesale Customer membership you do not need to enter your social security number (that is only for tax purposes). If at any time you decide that you would like to sell doTERRA you can upgrade to a Wellness Advocate status and be able to create an income.
What do I need to get started?
To begin as a Wholesale Member you start by purchasing an enrollment kit. There are several options to choose from depending on your budget. I highly recommend the Home Essentials kit or the Natural Solutions kit…best bang for your buck!
If you have no intention of ever selling the oils to others, becoming a Wholesale Member is a great option.
If you think you might be interested in selling doTERRA, then sign up to be a Wellness Advocate. There are no minimum sales or quotas you must meet– it will be your business and you can build it how you want to.
There are also a variety of enrollment kits available. Purchasing a kit is not a requirement, but I do highly recommend starting out with one, as it is a wonderful, money-saving way to start your oil journey. There are many other kit options available– click HERE to see the three most popular.
