Why Essential Oils Are Essential For Your All-Natural Homestead
Growing up, we just purchased our home cleaners, hand soap, and other necessities at the supermarket. And we were ok with that. We didn't think whether the cleaners had healthy ingredients - we just knew they got our counters shiny and kept our hands clean.
Then we moved to our homestead.
We started raising our own chickens, pigs, goats, ducks, and pretty much every other animal you can imagine. As we started raising our own food, we learned something that got our attention:
Products we use on our livestock effects the quality of the food WE eat. The cleaners we use in our homes effects how healthy OUR environment is. The products we use on our own bodies effect how healthy WE are.
The Missing Piece Of The Puzzle
As I discovered how many toxins were in the products we used every day, a light bulb went off. It didn't make sense to grow our own food and live a healthy life and NOT make sure everthing we used contained only all-natural ingredients.
The more I learned, store-bought products, with their impossible-to-pronounce ingredients, didn't make sense any more. Whenever we used them, we were exposing ourself, our children, and our animals to harmful toxins.
We were missing a piece of the puzzle and we HAD to make a change.
So I started researching. I learned a LOT - and everything I found either didn't make sense for US or was very expensive. But then, something happened:
I learned about essential oils.
And the more I learned - the more using oils around my homestead MADE SENSE.
Oils are all-natural and non-toxic. They're frugal - one bottle can perform 5 different duties on our farm, and I only pay pennies per drop. (What store-bought cleaner, air freshener, or immune support product can do that?!)
All my research - everything - came together.
And I've learned that I'm not alone. This is a journey almost EVERY homesteader I know has taken. Why? Because we all believe a life that includes all-natural, non-toxic products is a healthier lifestyle.
Fast-forward to today, and we're committed to a healthy lifestyle that includes essential oils. We no longer worry that our children and our animals are exposed to toxins unnecessarily. We've saved money, because we no longer buy expensive cleaners and other products. The oils DO IT ALL.
What are essential oils?
Ever cut up a lemon to clean your countertops? Do you dig the scent of pine on a crisp fall morning?
Then you've already experienced the power of essential oils! Essential oils are simply distilled plants in a bottle.
Yup, that's it!
But aren't these like snake oil? Do they really work?
The first time I tried essential oils, I was SKEPTICAL.
You see, I come from a science and medical-based background. How could something derived from nature - from plants - be powerful?
But I tried them anyway.
The first time they worked, I chalked it up to coincidence. I didn't think that a plant-based, all natural option could provide any REAL benefit.
But then I tried them a second time, then a third. And so on. After about the 10th time the oils worked for me, I COULDN'T just chalk it up to coincidence. There HAD to be something to them.
So I did my research. You know what I learned?
There's options and SOLUTIONS with essential oils.
We've used oils on our homestead for the past year, and they KEEP working. That means to me that essential oils aren't snake oil. They're a powerful option we can keep right in our own cabinets.
They're humble, but there's power in those little brown bottles....and it's totally revolutionized how I run my home, my homestead, and my family. And the best part is that essential oils have empowered me to take charge of my health and the health of my children.
The biggest question I get about essential oils is: Where can I find the best, most cost effective oils?
Let's get one thing out of the way.
When it comes to essential oils, you get what you pay for (just like anything else in life). I promise you that dirt cheap oils (oils you find at discount stores, for example) are not pure oils.
Essential oils are not regulated - that means anything can be in the bottle, and there's no guarantee it's safe to have on your homestead.
Bottom line: You won't get the same results you will with pure essential oils.
That's why I work with a single brand I trust: doTERRA.
I trust doTERRA oils are pure, and there's ONLY distilled plants in the bottle - no dangerous chemicals or toxins I could unintentionally expose my livestock or children to.
Most companies only test their essential oils in house - results that can't be independently verified for anyone to witness.
Unlike other companies, each batch of doTERRA essential oils undergoes 7 different tests from an independent lab to ensure ONLY pure essential oils are in the bottle - NOT toxins, heavy metals, or other impurities.
You can buy a single bottle of doTERRA oils, but I recommend starting with a kit.
Each starter kit comes with the basic essential oils you need to start your healthy homestead. You will also get a complimentary wholesale membership (think of it like a Costco membership), which saves you 25% compared to retail.
I've personally saved hundreds of dollars with my wholesale membership, and it's why I recommend it.
When your kit arrives from doTERRA, you can open the little brown bottles up, smell how powerful the oils are, and start using them right away.
You can diffuse them so your whole family gets the benefit, massage them into your tired muscles, or create a homemade non-toxic cleaner - or anything else you want!
The wholesale membership also comes with these benefits:
NO obligation to purchase monthly or sell (you definitely don't need to do oils as a business)
Complimentary Welcome Pack straight from my homestead to yours
Complimentary 30-Minute Phone Consult with me or a member of my team
Exclusive Facebook group and website where you can get your questions answered

Do I have to order every month to keep my wholesale account?
Nope. As a wholesale member, you can order as much, or as little, as you like. However, if you do plan on ordering frequently, be sure to join the Loyalty Rewards program. It’s basically a “frequent flyer” program that gives you free oils when you place a monthly order.
What if I want to start with other products?
Totally ok! doTERRA's wholesale membership (think Costco or Sam’s Club) is $35 on its own, and then you are free to order whatever individual oils or products you’d like at wholesale prices. However, most people start with a kit because a) the membership fee is automatically included b) the kits give you an even better deal than wholesale pricing alone.
If I sign up with a wholesale account, do I have to sell the oils?
The option to create an income from sharing oils is one of the most exciting aspects of a wholesale membership. However, it is not a requirement. If you just want to use your wholesale membership to purchase oils for yourself and your family, that’s fabulous. And I won’t bug you about it.
Why should I work with you instead of other teams?
I'm dedicated to giving you the most up-to-date information available. I see my role as a mentor to offer guidance - whenever you have a question, whether it's which oil is best for you or how to use a product, just reach out to me. Oils have changed my life, and I want them to positively impact yours too!
Why should I try essential oils?
I can't tell you the reasons why you should try oils - that's a personal decision only you can make. What I CAN tell you is everyone I've worked with has had a revolutionary experience with their oils, and I take the extra steps to provide education and guidance so you can get the most out of your investment. If you're curious - give them a try!
How do I know essential oils will work?
Like anything in life, essential oils AREN'T a miracle cure. If you've broken your leg and dab some oil on it, your leg won't magically get better. But you CAN use essential oils consistently to support a healthy lifestyle and empower yourself to make your own decisions about your health. Personally, I've used oils and experienced their benefits - and that's enough proof for me. I encourage you to try them, and decide for yourself.
I can't begin to describe how my life has changed since starting with oils. My feelings of frustration and my concerns for the health of my children dissappeared. I feel empowered to make my OWN decisions about MY health and self-care - I don't have to just "take someone else's word" for it.
