Don't Buy These Essential Oils

This is a friendly PSA: Don’t buy shitty essential oils

I BELIEVE in plant medicine so I choose to support my family’s health in this way. I find plants easy, effective and affordable- that's a win-win-win for this busy-over-exerted-mama. Plus, I am addicted to feeling empowered with my essential oil blends whenever I use them💪🏻 - They just work so well for my family. Why stop?

90% of the issues my family encounters on a daily basis are supported with us simply reaching for essential oils from doterra (and not just through diffusing). I am going to share SEVEN fun ways you can support and empower your family with doterra's essential oil too.

But first, here are 5 reasons (TBH, it was tough to narrow it down to only 5 reasons) why I got very selective in the brand of essential oil I trust and stopped buying other essential oil brands:

5 Reasons Why I Chose doterra.

✅ 1. Clean & Toxic-Free: There are no contaminants, fillers, chemicals, synthetics, perfumes, dyes or adulterations. Every oil is pharmaceutically pure because of state-of-the-art technology and equipment that allows us to provide a consistent, unmatched quality. Our panel of scientists is dabomb-dotcom too.

✅ 2. Sustainability Is VIP: All of our plant material is sourced responsibly AND sustainably.

✅ 3. Research + Backed By Science: doterra is at the forefront of changing healthcare with essential oil clinical research and partnerships like Johns Hopkins University.

✅ 4. Integrity: We work directly with all of our farmers, harvesters and communities. We ensure everyone is treated fairly. This includes long-term contracts, fair & on-time payments, and ensuring there are proper labor conditions and living conditions within the communities. We create jobs. Making a difference in the communities sourcing the oils is very important

✅ 5. Quality: What you see with doterra is what you get. Testing, purity, quality, transparency, integrity, sustainably sourced partnerships- I mean the list goes on that truly showcases the heart-beat and culture within doterra's community.

I wrote an article with a few recipes my kids like to use: 'Playing with Essential Oils: Kid-Approved Recipes for Fun!' Do you know how liberating it was to hand my 5-year-old an all-purpose spray cleaner (that only contained Lemon 20 drops of essential oil, 2 Tbsp of vinegar and topped with water) to clean the bathroom mirror he spit toothpaste all over? It was simply glorious!

p.s not only is #doterra the only brand of essential oils worth spending your hard-earned money on, but you also get me to be friends with 💋 MJJ

Hi, I'm Melissa 👋🏻

If you hang around me long enough I will convince you that you are worth anything your heart desires. Yes, anything!

I live on an acreage on a small island on the West Coast of Canada (Salt Spring Island) with my husband, two boys and animals.

I pump my tires on empowering women to make themselves a priority, and living an intentionally clean and natural lifestyle- I love to live sustainably and I like to DIY the shit out of everything.

When I was employed, I quickly learned that I hated working on other people's terms. I disliked trading my precious time to build somebody else's dream and I wanted to be the one raising my babies at home with me. The essential oil industry has allowed me to build my dream life and dream business from home.

You can find me on Instagram for daily tips for self-care, essential oil education, and lots of laughter.
