About four years ago, my love with essential oils began. Truthfully, it started with my first bottle of lavender oil. I couldn’t get enough of the smell! Before I knew it, I was finding a million ways to use it on my skin and around my house just so I could be surrounded with it’s deliciousness. Fast forward a few years and my essential oil collection now rivals the best of any collection. An essential oil for every use and a thousand uses for every essential oil!
I now also run a Facebook group where a community of fellow essential oil loves gather to talk about everything essential oil oriented! You can join the conversation HERE.
How We Use Essential Oils Around Our Homestead:
For homemade cleaners
For digestive problems
For calming coughs
For healing eczema
For cradle cap and itchy scalps
For homemade toothpaste
For delicious smelling laundry
As a disinfectant in our cloth diaper pail
For wound treatment on us and our animals
For calming fussy babies
For respiratory/cough relief
…and so much more!
But why doTERRA oils?
I’ve spent my share of time toying with different brands of essential oils and yet time and time again I found myself coming back to DoTerra. Even though they’re slightly more expensive than my local health food store’s favored brand, I found them to be the most effective. Effective oils means I can use less. And using less means they last me longer.
“doTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure and natural and free of synthetic compounds or contaminates. They are subjected to rigorous mass spectrometry and gas chromatography testing to ensure extract composition and activity. doTERRA’s 100% pure essential oils represent the safest and most beneficial essential oils available today.” (doTERRA website)
Many people use essential oils but not everyone uses essential oils that are distilled, created, and blended in such a pure fashion. It’s the cream of the crop, baby. And if you’re interested in essential oils, that’s a bandwagon you want to jump on.

There’s a few ways you can purchase doTERRA oils:
1. Purchase them from my online store (visit it HERE).
This is a great way to start dabbling in some of doTERRA’s oils to find out what you love! The price listed through my website are full, retail prices. Oils will be delivered right to your door!
2. Become a Preferred Member.
Preferred Members pay only $10 for a lifetime membership which allows them to purchase all products for 20% off retail price. Preferred Members can also take part in the Loyalty Rewards Program. (See below for further details on this!)
Click HERE to sign up as a Preferred Member and get 20% off retail prices – whoop whoop!
3. Become an Independent Product Consultant (IPC)
As a doTERRA IPC, you’ll receive the deepest discounts possible. Everything you purchase will be at wholesale price, which is 25% off retail. Some people choose to make a business out of sharing these high-quality oils with their friends and family, some don’t. Either way, signing up as an IPC gives you the biggest discount. If you’re a big essential oil user, or are looking to really expand your knowledge of essential oils and how to use them, than IPC is for you. Even if you have no intention of ever selling the oils to others, becoming an IPC is still a great option. There are no minimums or quotas you must meet– and no one is going to pressure you to sell product or have “parties”.
It costs $35/year to sign up as an IPC (aka a wholesale account.) It’s a lot like purchasing a membership to Sam’s Club or Costco- one annual fee for savings all year long. Each year past the first is $25 for membership renewal (though you do get a free bottle of peppermint oil too! booya.)
There are a variety of enrollment kits available. Purchasing a kit is not a requirement, but it’s a great, cost-effective way to get your medicine cabinet stocked! You can view available kits HERE.
How to Sign Up As An IPC
1. Click over to the sign-up page HERE.
2. Select “Join as a new Independent Product Consultant”
3. The “Enroller ID” and “Sponsor ID” boxes should already be filled in for you. But if not, enter 817520 in both boxes.
4. Fill out your name, billing address, shipping address, and contact info. (The reason you are asked to list your social security number is for earnings/tax purposes.)
5. Select your time zone and choose a virtual office password.
6. Agree to Terms & Conditions and the Virtual Office User Agreement. .)
7. Select your enrollment order. This is where you can specify which enrollment kit you would like or if you’d rather not start with a kit, simply select the Introductory Packet ($35) option. You can also purchase other items at this time if you wish.
8. Set up your optional Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP). This is not a requirement, although it is a money-saving way to build your oil collection.
Wait? What the heck is a Loyalty Rewards Program?
It’s basically a monthly subscription plan. You choose whatever products you want, easily changed from month-to-month. doTERRA ships them automatically to you on a date of your choosing each month. That’s it!
doTERRA’s Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP) provides free product credits for monthly purchases ordered on the program and is the most economical way to purchase doTERRA oils. As a participant in the Loyalty Rewards Program, you will immediately begin to earn product credits that can be used as cash to purchase doTERRA products (and yes, they sell much more than oils! Check out all they offer HERE!). The longer you participate in the LRP, the more credits you can earn–up to 30% of your total monthly Loyalty Rewards purchases. If you decide that this is something you are interested in, select the products you would like to ship in your first LRP order. You will also need to select a ship date. Easy peasy.
