Shopping with DoTERRA

This is Post 2 for today, be sure to head back to Post 1: Healing from Home.

Another great way to save money with doTERRA, is the *Loyalty Rewards Program.


This is for people who want to shop more regularly, and continue to build their oil stash….

  DoTERRA pays for shopping by giving you the 3 P’s:

  1.   Having 50 pv in your cart means you get points to spend on future orders.  
  2.   Having 100 pv in your cart, means you get points and a paycheck.  
  3.   Having 125 pv in your cart, means you get points, paycheck AND the free product of the month.  (They give out all oils, from low priced to high end, $100 ones!!!)

All this, just for shopping with doTERRA regularly, and also for referring friends!

doTERRA takes such good care of us, because the longer you participate in the Loyalty Rewards Program, the more credits you can earn—up to 30% of your total monthly LRP purchases.  What that means in lay terms, is that last month I spent 100 of my earned points, and got $100 worth of free oils, only paying shipping and a small fee.

  Um, YES PLEASE!  Did you know, as a Loyalty Rewards member, they also give you 100% of your shipping costs, back to you in free points for free oils.  NICE!  *This applies to first time kit orders and loyalty rewards orders only.  Otherwise it’s 50% back.

Again I will say, this is not a required program when you become a member, but if you are going to shop anyways, it’d be foolish not to earn points and free oils.  I cannot WAIT for my oil order to come each month, so we can restock, try new things, AND so I can see what free oil they sent this month.  This company is not stingy, they send out the expensive oils as freebies, too!!!!!!

Yes, you can start or stop Loyalty Rewards at any time.  If you stop the program, be sure and cash in your Loyalty Rewards Points first or else they will be forfeited.  Keep in mind, if you stop the program and choose to start again, you will begin at the 10% level, which stinks if you made it to 30%!!!!!  It’d be smarter to buy one little thing and stay active, then to lose it all together.

I didn’t sign up with doTERRA to sell the product, rather, I went into it knowing I would be a consumer only. However, because I love to talk about things I LOVE, I am currently earning about $250 a month with doTERRA.

This is paying for my monthly oil order, as well as an extra bill or clothes for the kids.  Praise the Lord!

The business side of DoTERRA works on a power of 3 set up, I sign up 3 girls and get $50 a month, I sign up their girls with 3 girls each, and I get $250 a month.  My goal for 2015, is to get THEIR 3 girls 3 girls, so that we can reach $1500 a month. That part can be reproduced again and again.

Goal 1 goal 2 goal 3

The oils really do just sell themselves.  All I do is put info out there on social media, about what we used that day, or which recipe is in my diffuser, or offer advice to a frazzled, non sleeping Momma now and then.  Thankfully, more and more people are realizing how flawed our health care system is, and are leaning more towards natural remedies again.

I am going to stop for today, please feel free to ask any questions you have about signing up, and or the Loyalty Rewards program, in the comments section, and I will do my best to answer promptly. I am also going to link a video so you can hear this in another persons words.

If you still aren’t sure about how this all works, please take a look at this video:


The A-Z’s of doTERRA Oils: Part 3

  Wrapping up our Alphabet today with V-Z!

V is for Virus

  Oregano called the most powerful, natural anti-virus, anti bacterial, antibiotic, found in Nature.  I don’t care what they call it, I just know it WORKS!

Oregano  Origanum vulgare



  Do not rub this on healthy skin, rather, use it with a qtip on warts and skin tags, to easily remove.  It’s safe to use on feet bottoms as directed earlier, to quickly move the body from sick to healthy, because oregano can cross into a cell wall.

  This is one of the ones I used that first night we had our oils plus the stomach flu. This is top 2 at my house, second only to On Guard!

Please do not use if you are pregnant!  Also, this is a ‘hot’ oil, so use with caution on young children.  We use it on everyone 3 and up at our house, but only mommy can apply this oil and only to feet bottoms! The skin there is hardy enough to handle it.  I don’t dilute, but a lot of people do.


W is for Wrinkles

  Frankincense in Coconut Oil is a great and affordable night cream and face cream.  Add in Immortel, not pictured, for amazing results!  (Seen in both wrinkle reduction and glasses prescription changes)


X is for I am so eXcited about these OILS!!!!

Ok fine, X is for nothing in my oil box, but I tried!  ;)

Y is for Yawn

Melatonin is an important part of sleep, GOOD sleep.

That is where CEDARWOOD comes in.  Just swipe it across your forehead, and on feet bottoms, and head to bed! 



Any of these will help you achieve a good nights sleep.


Good night.   T
