We have been getting a lot of enquiries through our Embraced Mummas page lately about these beautiful essential oils; as we start to share the impacts they have made on our lives. However, a common theme stopping people from jumping in seems to be the financial investment involved.
In this post I want to break it down a little, and give you my understanding on the value the oils hold and why we should be more mindful about our spending habits.
Why do we encourage everyone to enrol with a wholesale account?
The simple answer to this question is that it makes the most financial sense. You could buy retail if that’s what you wanted to do, but it will cost you 25% more and the relationship would end there. The feedback we have been hearing is that people are really benefiting from the support we provide with their oily journey and we can only do this if people enrol with an account and become a part of our circle.
Yes, to enrol it does cost $35. But it is worth every penny and it is a one off for the year!
Once you have your account you are stuck with us! We are making more and more friends by the day and we are here to support you to make the most of your essential oils, make the changes you want to see in your life, and just to have a chat if that’s what you need! We even have some mummas building businesses with us because they are sick of the rut they are stuck in and want to start making a difference in the world.
With your enrolment not only do you get a handy little enrolment pack that includes some information about the dōTERRA company and your oils. But you also have the option of joining the very generous Loyalty Rewards Program which allows you to earn free oils!
The cost of the oils
The price of the dōTERRA oils may be different to what you are used to seeing in your local $2 shop or even health food store. The prices range from $14 for a Wild Orange, to $135 for a bottle of Helichrysum. This is one of the reasons I admire dōTERRA and this beautiful company we are partnered with. These oils are sourced from over 140 different countries (half of which could be considered developing) and will only be harvested if it is sustainable. The differing prices of the oils depends on a number of factors including sustainability, availability and location.
There is an awesome website that goes into more detail about how the oils are sourced and it is really worth a look! sourcetoyou.com
dōTERRA has developed a Co Impact sourcing method which ensures ethical treatment of its suppliers. So, when you are purchasing from us at Embraced Mummas or any other dōTERRA wellness advocates you can be sure that you are actually making a difference in peoples lives.
Supporting small business
As much as supporting the local communities in which the oils are sourced from, you are also supporting us! You are supporting work at home mums, you are helping to grow the Embraced Mumma community and you are helping us reach more mums, just like you! It feels really great to know that your money is circulating in a good way!
I urge you to be ever mindful about where your money is circulating, and start becoming more intentional about spending.
There is value in quality
In aromatherapy, the quality of your oils is everything. It can help you look and feel younger and more alive, enhancing your life and sense of well-being in many ways. But, in order for it to work, you need to use quality oils. The problem is, about 98% of essential oils produced in the world today are not intended for serious aromatherapy; they’re produced for the perfume/cosmetic or food industries. Yet, marketers will bottle these lower quality oils and sell them as aromatherapy products. If you attempt anything more than recreational aromatherapy with any of these oils, you’re likely to be very disappointed.
So how is dōTERRA different? Each dōTERRA essential oil is carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognise the superior quality and standard of these beautiful oils.
A little really does go a long way when it comes to your oils! In every 15ml bottle you will get approximately 250 drops which equals only 6c per drop for wild orange or 12c per drop for lavender.
Do you want to make a change?
If you see the value in optimum mental and physical health, you will find ways of manifesting money. There is no quick solution, this is a way of life and we want to support you on your journey!
