How I Came Across doTERRA Essential Oils
4 years ago (perhaps more) I was at work one afternoon when I found myself feeling extremely anxious and fidgety.
This is not uncommon for me, I tend to get mild episodes of anxiety since I was young.
Even though my anxiety is not severe, it can be pretty uncomfortable and it makes it difficult for me to concentrate and be productive.
Anyway, that day my beautiful friend Shari was sitting next to me and she asked me what was wrong, I briefly explained I was feeling “stressed”.
Out of nowhere, she showed me a few small bottles with colorful labels and she asked me to smell a little drop of this oil named wild orange.
She mentioned this oil was meant to calm me down, uplift me and help me with my mood.
At first, I was skeptical. I didn’t even know what essential oils were, and I thought: how the heck are oranges going to make me feel better?
But, being a true fan of nice smelly things and my curious mind made me give it a go.
And let me tell you… in that moment my love affair with essential oils started!
This beautiful aromatic scent not only smelled like heaven, it calmed me down almost immediately.
Then, Shari asked me to smell a drop of peppermint oil too. This oil opened my airways- making it easier for me to breath and relax.
It was amazing! I had finally found a natural and beautiful way to manage my anxiety 😌
What These Oily Babies Have Done For Me:
1. They helped me strengthen my relationship with my body
As a woman, I’m really proud of my decision to build a healthy and loving relationship with my body.
It was not easy, but the moment I made the commitment to choose high-quality foods and products to help my body flourish and stay healthy, my life completly changed.
I started meditating, doing yoga and exercising a bit more.
The beauty about these oils is that you can use them in so many ways and they can be great tools to honour your body.
For instance, my oils help me be more present during meditation, my food tastes better without having to add any artificial flavour.
And I can’t put into words how amazing it feels to get home after a long day and add a few drops of lavender or any other beautiful oil to my diffuser.
2. They helped me get glowy skin and beautiful hair
When I started making my own creams, hair treatments, face cleansers, body butters and more, I could straight away notice the difference they made to my skin and hair.
Even people started to notice it too!
I don’t even need to wear foundation, which is amazing because I’m lazy lol
3. They help me save money
As you know, I love talking about finance and finding ways to save money. For more tips about saving money read this.
A great benefit I found after using doTERRA oils was the money I stopped spending on beauty and cleaning products.
When you start looking for cruelty-free, organic, eco-friendly, toxin-free products your options are limited and often times they come with a price tag.
However, when you have your oils, you have your own toolbox to create amazing products that work.
Because each oil is so potent, you only need a few drops and you can create wonders while having fun in the process too.
*** Note: I will be sharing DIY projects and recipes so you can see how many things you can make with your oils. For now, I can tell you I make your own candles, healthy gummy bears, air fresheners, lip balms and more!
4. doTERRA supports my WHY
There’s nothing I love more in the world than seeing women feeling grounded, empowered and healthy.
That’s the only way we get to be great business women, mothers, daughters, sisters, partners etc.
So I get excited when I come across companies that create beautiful, well designed, natural and safe products that work.

“I don’t have to settle for something that isn’t going to make me feel good”.
Ans it’s true! we don’t have to settle for shitty products when we have the right and power to choose better options for ourselves and our families.
With doTERRA, I trust each oil I purchase has been tested for purity, potency and consistency.
I know this company strives to bring us high-quality products and that gives me such a peace of mind.
One of my Instagram followers also said to me:
“Ailyn, your purchases have a voice. Your money is your way to vote. If you buy products that are made from questionable sources made by questionable companies . At the end of the day, that’s what you are supporting.”
This simple yet powerful statement deeply changed the way I approach my purchases.
Sure, once in a while I indulge on products that I know are not the best for me but most of the time I try to do better by me, my family, the environment and the world.
Another great thing I love about doTERRA as a company is that my oils are sourced from communities in developing countries and doTERRA ensures the growers receive fair and timely payments.
doTERRA also does philanthropic work, The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is an international registered non-profit organisation that supports many projects in developing countries including building and revitalising schools and clinics, clean water programs, hygiene and health education and much more.
So, I can happily buy, promote and interconnect my business with a conscious company that creates amazing products. ❤️
