This is the final post in my five-part series about why I love doTERRA as a company. I am so grateful to end it talking about the business opportunity as it has made an incredible difference in my life and will continue to do so for the years to come as my team grows.

Sharing essential oils is a unique experience, and the founders of doTERRA recognised that a sales model just as unique would be needed.

In order to best facilitate the personal essential oil experiences, doTERRA decided to implement a direct selling model as opposed to going down the path of stocking their oils in a retail outlet and promoted via mass marketing.

The direct sales model (network marketing as you may know it) enables people to work with their customers in an individual way which enables customers to experience for themselves the incredible power of essential oils while also developing relationships of trust. This model also created the opportunity for individuals and families to achieve their dreams of financial independence.

There are currently over 5 million wellness advocates and customers who now use and sell doTERRA’s oils and products around the world.

The opportunity that doTERRA provides for regular people just like me to create a business from home that enables them to live out their visions and dreams and set up a financial pipeline (residual income) is just incredible.

In this post I am not going to go into too much detail on how you run this business, the compensation plan, how you get started or anything like that – its more an overview of the opportunity and what it has meant for me. Go here if you want to learn more.

Not only does this business enable you to create the income that you desire but it also gives you the opportunity to pursue other passions and things that you want to do whether that be humanitarian work or travel, the opportunities are endless. This business will grow you as a person and this is something that I didn't expect when I started. My confidence and belief in myself has grown enormously (and is still growing) and I have done things that I never thought I would do (zip line in Fiji is one of them).

I have connected with some incredible women (and a few men) in my team and the support, encouragement and sense of community just blows me away. I have friends who have joined me in this business and through this business have made some friends who will be in my life forever.  I often say that while I am in business for myself, I certainly don't feel alone and the tribe and support is there whenever I need it.

To get into this business, the costs are low - all you need is the Home Essentials Kit + Fractionated Coconut oil and you can begin sharing these oils and introducing them to others. The risk is low as there are no big costs in fit-out or rent. All you are required to do is place a 100PV order each month - no matter what rank you are in the business, it always stays at this level and ensures that you are using the oils so you have personal stories to share with others.

You do not need any particular skills, knowledge or experience to do this business. There are people who have done this before you and are there to support and guide you. You do not need to recreate anything. Everything is duplicatable (but don't worry, you can put your own spin on it). There are so many ways you can do this business so you can do it in a way that is aligned to your skills or how you want to grow the business.

I think the network marketing model is incredible, particularly for mums. When getting into any opportunity like this you have to be passionate about the product - number 1. If you are not passionate about the company and the products, then you may be successful for a short time but in the long run, people will see through it.


The business opportunity is incredible and anyone can do it but it isn't for everyone. If something in this has sparked an interest for you, please get in touch, I would love to chat to you - or check out the recording of a webinar I did previously to outline the business opportunity.

If you haven’t yet started with oils and want to get your own oils, follow the instructions below:

To purchase doTERRA essential oils go to: 


1. Select join and save

2. Choose wholesale customer (if you plan to be a customer only - you can upgrade later but we can chat about that) or wellness advocate if you want to build a business with doTERRA or refer your family and friends and earn some money back for doing so.

3. Fill in your details

4. Choose whichever starter kit you feel drawn to (my pick is the Home Essentials Kit + Fractionated Coconut oil as it has everything you need to get started, otherwise select the Introductory Enrolment Packet and add the individual oils you would like to start with)
