My Essential Oils

Herbalism has always been an extreme passion for me along this homesteading journey. I am passionate about the belief that you cannot truly get back to simpler living without covering all aspects of it, and that includes less chemicals, less medicine, and healing the way the body, God, and earth intended you to—naturally, holistically, and simply.


On my journey through herbalism, I quickly fell in love with Essential Oils (EOs), and the health benefits they offer. Not only do we use them on ourselves, but we use them around our homestead and even on our farm animals. For years I have treated ailing animals with herbs and EOs rather than chemicals, and it works just as well (and even better).

I don’t have time to be sick. I’m a mom. And my husband and baby don’t have time to be sick either. We’re busy homesteaders, after all. And if I can keep us out of the doctors office and keep us healthy in strong simply by incorporating herbs and EOs into our lifestyle, then that’s absolutely what I intend to do.

For years, I was completely against Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) companies. I even wrote multiple blog posts about why you should avoid EO MLM companies and purchase from third parties. And while I still stand by that to an extent, and believe many third parties offer amazing essential oils (like Mountain Rose Herbs), I also believe in supporting a company that is trying to make a change, and that offers me to help them make a change. I also believe in supporting my own family, and therefore, the company I chose to go with gave me this ability to promote what I love, all while helping support my family and allowing me to work from home, receive discounts and incentives, and educate people along the way. And yes, it is a MLM company! And I’m ok with that.
While I do rep doTERRA, I don’t want the “rep” title. Just because I can now sell and promote a certain oil company, it does not mean my beliefs and motives have changed. My ultimate goal is to help educate people through herbalism and EOs. I still use herbs as my main source of medicine, but we also use EOs frequently.

So why am I sharing this with you? Because herbs and EOs have changed our lives, and they could change yours as well. It’s a process, but a skill set that we’ve lost these last few generations. And I think it’s time that we start learning this skill set again.

I chose this company because, as a dear friend explained to me, they run their company like a homestead. They are completely debt free. They support local farmers. But more than anything, they believe that the potency of the EO is purer and better when the actual plant is grown in its native country. And I could not agree with that more. My biggest issue with other MLM companies was that all of the plants their EOs derived from were grown right here in the USA.


Hold up…wait a minute…isn’t that good?!
Well, it’s good for the American economical system, but it’s not necessarily a good thing for your health. When a plant is not grown in its native soil, it is not to its fullest potential. Therefore, offering a less quality oil to your family to use. Because doTERRA supports native, sustainable farmers and businesses, they are able to outsource the planting and harvesting to these farmers, and then they reap the benefits—a pure oil that derives from its very own native country. They are bottled undiluted and without any fillers, additives, preservatives, artificial colors or fragrances. They are then batch tested by a third party company for purity and potency, and then, and only then, shipped out.
This is why many of these oils are more expensive (such as Melissa and Frankincense), because they actually come from the country they should be grown in, rather than a greenhouse in the USA.


How Do I Get Started in EOs?

Well, I’m glad you asked!! We use EOs so many different ways on our homestead, and I feel that EOs are extremely beneficial to any homestead or family searching for a better way to natural living.


Here’s how we use them:
  • In place of harsh rubbing alcohol or peroxide
  • For deep lacerations, cuts, and bruises
  • Boost the immune system
  • Help ease seasonal allergies
  • Heal skin irritations and issues
  • In a diffuser to help ease sinus pressure and inflammation
  • In a diffuser to help relieve asthmatic flare ups
  • Treat chickens, rabbits, and other livestock topically and for internal parasitic activity
  • . . . and so much more!
I would suggest you choose the top 3 things you are interested in healing or keeping on hand for yourself or your animals. Maybe you have chronic headaches? Maybe you’re looking for a flu and cold defense for your children? Or maybe you want to treat those pesky ear infections your farm animals or children get?
Whatever it is, think about those 3 things, and then we can research which oils will work best for you. The best part? If you sign up for the oils through me, you not only get the “oil” aspect of healing, but I am also your personal coach through herbal remedies as well, should you have any questions, and you get access to my community of fellow oilies! Think of it as a Costco membership. You don’t actually have to sell anything once you sign up. You just use the wholesale discounts to your own advantage!


The Perks

First things first—if you’re like me, I didn’t have the finances at the time to go all out on a big kit. While I didn’t buy a kit immediately, I will remind you that you are investing into you and your family’s health. That, in and of itself, is a motivating factor. My theory is that if I could skip as many sick visits to the doctor as possible, the better off my family would be. This meant not only saving money in the long run, but also saving our already compromised immune systems (when sick) from being weakened even more by taking a trip to the nearest doctor’s office of medical center.  
You can simply buy the $35 membership as a wholesale customer or a wellness advocate (someone who eventually wants to sell oils). They cost they same amount.


  • When you buy oils as a wholesale member ($35 annual membership fee), you’ll automatically get 25% off all future purchases. 
  • After becoming a member of my Essential Oil family, the yearly renewal fee for a wholesale membership is $25.00. This renewal fee comes with a free bottle of Peppermint, one of the most popular oils they offer, a retail value of $27.33. So technically, since you’re GOING to use Peppermint all of the time (I know I do!), your membership is only…well…FREE! If you consider the cost of the oil that you’re receiving for free (and yes, you will use it all the time!).
  • As a member of my Essential Oil family, you’ll have access to oil-usage guides, Q&A sessions, team forums, videos, and more! I’ll be there to help you every single step of the way, and so will this incredible EO online community. If you have a question, someone will have an answer!
  • There are no required minimum orders, ever. No selling is ever required. But if you do decide to sell, doTERRA provides a business opportunity for those interested in creating an income. You can spend as little or as much time on it as you want. I will say, it’s easier to make an income off of it if you have a major online platform. But if you want to make some money, we can chat about it when you’re ready!
Wellness Advocates and Wholesale Customers both receive free points to go towards free oils. What a great way to bulk up your apothecary!
