The Power Of “ONE” Is Universal

Believe that we are truly all united, and that we each have the potential and gift to help ourselves and others feel and look as good we deserve.  doTerra Essential Oils are one component of health and wellness, which I and millions from across the globe synergistically prescribe to daily.    June 2016 – doTERRA celebrates 3,000,000 Wellness Advocates.  


This year’s doTerra “ONE” convention in Salt Lake City, Utah woke up all my senses to the beauty and positive impact of pure, therapeutic oils and it is plain to see that the number of people who will join the “feel good” revolution via essential oils will grow astronomically over the next decade; the reasons: original source, authentic and passionate founders who do all things with integrity and service coupled with the scientific and truly effective support essential oils provide to one’s wellbeing.


What can I say…people are innately good and when they share it’s magical.  doTerra “ONE” convention drew a draw of people of countries from across the world and I had the lovely privledge of meeting persons from Australia, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Tokyo, China and Bulgaria.


There’s no way to say I have a favorite person whom I met, but certainly one who resonated with me on a cultural level is, Patricia Quiroz Rios, the founder of doTerra in Mexico.  I was standing in back of her in line for coffee at the hotel yesterday morning.  Patricia, and elegant, fit, friendly and classy woman was kind enough to share how she uses oils and how they have personally helped her in life.  We ended up having a 2o minute heartfelt and beautiful conversation about the people of Mexico and the people of Greece.  The Mexicans and the Greeks have so much in common; love of herbs, the land, people, hospitality, tradition and a rich deep heritage. Patricia shared the Wild Orange and Peppermint oil to apply, inhale and enjoy right there in the lobby.  She showed me a technique I was not aware of, and it was quite stimulating and enjoyable.  Thank you Patricia and I look forward to connecting with this dynamic woman in the future, and I will definitely heed her advice…“Lead with your heart and your body will follow.”

Australia is a place I’ve always wanted to visit because of the natural beauty of the country and because of the friendly population.  Last night provided the opportunity to mingle with a native Australian who happens to be on Hayley and Wes Hobson’s (my up line) team.  Tara, a pretty, earthy and articulate young woman described Australia has easy, beautiful and beachy.  The country is known for and is “chill and friendly.”  Can’t wait to visit!  Tara is a doTerra advocate in Australia and leads her team from “down under.”

The three amigos toast to a higher rank!  Salute! 

Jenine is the reason I use essential oils as she is the one who introduced me to doTerra back in 2014 when I started my “once and for all,” weight loss journey with Precsion Nutrition at Energie studio.  Jenine, an RN, has biological understanding and education of the oils.  She and slowly helped me figure out which oils to use for my back pain, sleeping soundly at night and focus in my office.  Two years in and an “oiler for life” I recently I decided to officially advocate and share doTerra with all who come in my path.  Jenine introduced me to other dynamos on our team; Krista, Kim aka Kiki from Chicagoland, Julie, Alida, Becky Crashey, Rhonda, Tiffany, Mary and I hope I’m not forgetting anyone. Each advocate with the same intention: to help others feel better and look better with natural solutions. Certainly, these woman are also motivated by our team leaders: Hayley and Wes Hobson, an impressive wife and husband team who have earned Double Presidential Diamond rank in under 6 years.

Lastly, but absolutely most exciting was my introduction to doTerra Founding Executive, Chief Medical Officer / Chairman, Scientific Dr. David Hill.  Truly an honor to meet a humanitarian, physician, husband, father, leader, educator and an honestly wonderful man.  How often can you meet and learn from someone of this caliber?  Dr. Hill’s onstage presentations at convention were encouraging, meaningful and knowledgable.  Dr. Hill led a powerful Doctor panel at the convention, which addressed the scientific and cellular effects of essential oils.

The 2016 doTerra convention theme: Changing the world one drop, one person, one community at a time;  a mighty lofty yet attainable goal for the future.  

As Helen Keller once said, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”

It’s an honor to join the wellness revolution whereby allowing me to share and enlighten you with doTerra essential oils in mental and bodily health!
