Essential Mythbusters #6 - Essential oil reps aren't medical professionals

Essential Mythbusters #7 - Essential oils and supplements are expensive



It might be easiest to go back to bullet points. Seeing things all neat on a list like this make my mind so happy!
· Remember the old adage: You get what you pay for. This certainly applies to the essential oils market. Be diligent about finding oils that are pure, because it's your body and your health we're talking about.
· That being said, when you're using a pure oil, use less more often. These bottle are potent, give one a smell and you'll know, so it might only take an application or two to do the work (ie. rub tree oil on a pimple and it'll clear up in no time, costing under about .50 per use). A 15 ml bottle of our oil has 250 drops in it. That should last you a bit, if not years (citrus oils have a ten-year life span; other oils do not go bad).
· Diffusing an oil in a diffuser uses the most drops (8-12 typically), but it gives you hours of putting healthy molecules in the air to combat toxicity, freshen up the home, and support your body. This from a Huffpost article: "Research has shown that oils can kill most air-born microorganisms. A French study colonized 210 various microbes; within 30 minutes of misting the air with a mixture of oils, only four colonies remained alive."
· When it comes to supplements (ie. vitamins, collagen, probiotic, bone nutrient) you want something that's actually got the ingredients listed in it, no fillers, and a combination that's been well-researched. Pure essential oils help get all those other ingredients where they need to go. This isn't an inexpensive process, but its preventative work is so worth it. When your body needs additional support, it's an affordable, and needed, product. Those customers who have used other supplements in the past, typically find getting all of their supplement needs met by a few of our products from one place actually saves them money.
· Finally, and this is one thing I'm wild about in doTerra, it costs time and money to establish a global network of farmers and customers. There's no middle man between the field of plants, or forest of trees, and a doTerra distillery. They work around the world in areas where oils can be processed indigenously. They've reinvested in those farming communities, creating jobs, helping with schools, health clinics, and so forth. Learning about these communities has been such a gift to me.
Can the price tag seem high sometimes? Maybe. With proper budgeting, it fits, and the many benefits are immeasurable.
