I am so enjoying sharing this information with you on the reasons why I love doTERRA as a company and I hope you are getting a lot out of it. You can see there is so much more to doTERRA than just essential oils.

The Healing Hands Foundation is an incredible way that people who purchase oils from doTERRA or partner with them in their businesses can give back. In building a business with doTERRA I will have the opportunity in future to go on healing hands trips and help to build schools or contribute to communities with whatever they need. I was fortunate to experience a healing hands project in Fiji in 2017 on a trip I earnt with doTERRA which I will share more about further down.

The aim of the Healing Hands Foundation seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant.

When the founders came together to bring the purest essential oils to the world  and individual homes they wanted to also influence and have an impact on communities around the world to enhance as many lives as possible. They want to be known as the company that gets the most people out of debt and this extends way past the wellness advocates and leaders building businesses with doTERRA, it also extends to the growers, distillers and harvesters.

Th doTERRA founders aspired to serve people and communities with the resources they had. Initially, this meant donating to charities, fundraisers, and community projects, but it eventually grew to be much more.

In June 2012, they created the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation. This was created as another way to make an impact and reach out serve communities in need. They do this by partnering with organizations and doTERRA Wellness Advocates to offer hope to millions around the world. Through the foundation’s efforts, lives are freed of disease and poverty, and communities are empowered with the tools needed to become self-reliant.

Common with many non-profit organisations, maintaining a constant flow of money and resources can be difficult. In order to provide sufficient funds for the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, the founders of doTERRA conceived a plan to sustainably raise money for the new organization and maximize its effect on individuals and communities worldwide. Donations to the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation can be made via Paypal, regular donations through LRP orders, one off donations through the online order system, sales from the Rose Oil Lotion and Hope Oil blend (100% of these goes to the Healing Hands Foundation).

Because of its many benefits and its intense extraction process, Rose oil is rare and valuable. doTERRA chose this Rose oil infused lotion to donate and represent the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation because it embodies the value of the Foundation.

I could go on and on about all of the amazing work that comes out of the Healing Hands Foundation as they do so much for so many. But one that I got to personally experience was supporting a remote village in Fiji. I was able to go on an incentive trip to Fiji that I earnt. It was incredible to connect with other wellness advocates from around Australia and New Zealand but the highlight was the healing hands project.

Before heading to Fiji, we were asked to bring some school supplies for kids with us to Fiji as the service component of the trip. I didn't really understand what this meant at the time and what it would involve and I had absolutely no idea of how impactful this part of the trip would be.

On day two of our trip after our morning meeting, we had the opportunity to pack the pencil cases full of supplies from textas to pencils, sharpeners, erasers and other school supplies for a local school and kids in a village. I didn’t know when we were packing these if we would get to deliver them or not but it was great being able to do this and write a note for a child that would receive my pack.

We weren’t able to get to the school due to rain and flooding so we went to a village where many of the kids from the school lived. The village had around 200 people living there. We were welcomed in the most beautiful way with a song outside their main village hall. We stood in the rain while they sang songs and clapped to welcome us. We were then treated to a traditional Fijian welcome and kava ceremony and dancing with the people of the village.

After this we had the opportunity to give the children the pencil cases. Seeing the delight on their faces when presented with these gifts was a truly life changing experience. It bought tears to my eyes to watch the excitement – at something my own kids would find so small in comparison.

Then to see them open the pencil cases and talk excitedly to each other about what they each had was just beautiful to watch.

We also presented them with a cheque for $2,500USD from the Healing Hands Foundation. We were told on our last day before heading to the airport that the village was struggling before we visited and now love doTERRA because of what the school supplies and the money means to them. They now see doTERRA as the answer to their prayers – in many ways, their miracle.

When I heard this, I tears welled up in my eyes. This experience and the opportunity to give back and meet and interact with the villagers was incredible. doTERRA through their Healing Hands Foundation is able to make a difference to communities just like this all around the world. 

Seeing how they live and the excitement in their faces for us to come to visit them will be in my heart forever. Read more about this trip here.

This is just one of the many projects that doTERRA run around the world that has such a significant impact on the communities.

There are many other incredible projects that have been delivered by the Healing Hands Foundation – the two videos below give you an insight into some of the projects and the life changing difference they make to the communities that doTERRA works.

So, when you buy your oils, you are playing a small part in making a difference to lives all around the world. You can increase this by making a donation to the foundation. Imagine if every wellness advocate and customer donated $1 with every order they make – the incredible difference and ripple effect this would create around the world.
