The following was on doTERRA's Facebook page. Please be sure to buy purchase the items you want from the Holiday catalog on November 1. I have a feeling this Rwandan peace basket will be the first to go!
The story of the Rwandan peace basket is one of triumph over tragedy. One hundred days in 1994 became known as the Rwandan genocide. While the stories of loss and tragedy are innumerable, the real story is told through the people, the landscape, the children, and mostly, the future.
Communities of people joining together in traditional basket weaving cultivated healing and harmony. Gifting the baskets to others continued the united pledge to establish peace. As women gathered together building pieces of art, they left behind healing, hope, strength, and honor.
Through the Rwandan Peace Basket project, over 2,000 women were provided work and paid a fair wage for each basket made exclusively for doTERRA.
This Gift of Peace set includes a uniquely colored ornament basket. Each basket is handmade with sisal fibers from agave plants and features a tag signed by the specific artisan who made it. A 5mL bottle of doTERRA Peace® Blend is included. Because of the unique, individual nature of the peace basket, it is not possible to choose your color and the color will be randomly selected when you place your order.
All holiday gift items will be available to order on November 1, 2016 at midnight Mountain Time. To see the catalog, click here: www.doterra.com/holiday2016
A leader on the team I'm on posted something in our Facebook group that I found so interesting. I've thought you couldn't take Oregano every day, but I was wrong! Here's what she wrote:
Today I discovered that I had learned something wrong and I've taught it wrong. Like many of us, my understanding was that we should not take Oregano for more than about 2 weeks consecutively so as not to disrupt our gut's good bacteria.
MYTH!!! I had no idea. While this concept makes perfect sense, science shows us something completely different. In an online discussion today, our VP Emily Wright chimed in to clarify this issue to us:
"I am traveling and don't have access to the research handy, but this is exactly with Jennifer Edens, PhD, conducted her research on. She was able to prove that essential oils do not attack the friendly bacteria in the gut. This is one of those things that leave scientists scratching their head because they can't explain it. I trump it up to the oils having an intelligence that we cannot fully comprehend and will never be able to mimic. That's the beauty of nature's perfection!"
Years ago when I was first buying essential oils, you had to go to a health food store to get them. They weren't mainstream at all.
Now you can buy essential oils in big discount stores. Here's a news flash...
The oils you buy in those stores aren't REAL essential oils. They're synthetic. Sometimes 100% synthetic in fact (as shown by the guy at Essential Oil University).
doTERRA started eight years ago because the owners knew that for an essential oil to have the power to improve your health and well-being it needed to be pure, natural, and potent. They also knew that much of what was sold in the marketplace was none of those things.
Is Purity Enough?
Many oil labels claim that their oil is 100% pure. And it might be! But that doesn't mean that it has the chemistry it needs to get the job done.
Lavender grown in Utah has a different chemical makeup than lavender grown in Bulgaria.
Different parts of a plant contain essential oils with a differing chemical composition. While most parts of the cedar tree have essential oils, the heartwood has the highest concentration of cedrol, the chemical constituent that gives Cedarwood its calming effect. Some companies produce Cedarwood by distilling all parts of the tree, giving them a higher yield of essential oil, then adding synthetic cedrol to make up the difference. doTERRA distills only the heartwood so that our Cedarwood is naturally high in cedrol (and doTERRA never, ever adds synthetic chemicals to their oils!).
So you see, it's not just purity that counts. Potency counts, too!
Why buy wholesale?
Some people don't want to become wholesale customers of doTERRA, but I ask, why? What's the downside? You don't have to buy anything else EVER. You don't have to sell. You don't have to get on a monthly reoccurring order.
Are you a member at Costco? If so, you paid $55 to be a member and you have to show your card every time you shop there because you have to be a member to get their prices.
Why did you join Costco? When I originally got a membership, I was buying something big, like a TV or computer, and I was going to save more than $55 if I bought it at Costco. I had no intention of buying other things at Costco. I just wanted the initial savings.
Since then, I've found LOTS of products I love at Costco, so I am now a repeat customer.
Just like Costco, some people join doTERRA as a wholesale customer because they can save lots of money by purchasing an enrollment kit. They don't plan to buy more and that's fine!
Others want to be a wholesale member because they want to earn free products with Loyalty Rewards. They start with a smaller kit and then set a date for a monthly order to be shipped (the contents of that order can change every month depending on what you need).
Some people become a wholesale member, then place two or three one-time orders at random times during the year.
It's up to you.
I want to make a few things VERY CLEAR:
So what's stopping you? If you're ready to purchase doTERRA essential oils at the BEST price possible, become a wholesale member today. Instructions can be found by clicking on the Buy Now button below.
Get started with doTERRA in three simple steps: try a sample, learn more, then buy an enrollment kit.
Getting started with doTERRA is one of the best decisions you'll ever make for you and your family. My overall health and well-being has improved so much in the past three years since I've been using essential oils and taking the vitamins. So has my family's health.
So what's stopping you from taking the first step towards good health and well-being?
Get a sample
Have you tried a doTERRA essential oil yet? They aren't the same as the ones you can get at the grocery store. These essential oils are the purest and most potent oils you can buy. You haven't tried an essential oil until you've tried a doTERRA essential oil.

You have questions. I have answers (or at least I can find the answers!). There are a couple easy ways to learn more about the oils before you jump in and make an investment:
Whichever way you decide, just know that I'm always here to answer your questions.
Buy a kit
Though you can pay the $35 wholesale fee and pick and choose which oils to buy, I always recommend starting with an enrollment kit. Why? Because you'll end up getting some oils that you wouldn't have ordered and you.will.love.them. You'll be so glad you did!
Pick the kit that has as many things in it as you want (including a diffuser), then either add extras on to that first order or set up a Loyalty Rewards order for the next month.
Check out the enrollment kits here, then go here for instructions on how to buy.
You'll be so glad you got started with doTERRA!
