Why I love them and how I got started
My journey with Essential Oils only began a few months ago. I attended a class with Buffy from Begoodorganics.com. To be honest, I didn’t really know what to expect. But I loved the class and purchased a kit of the 10 most used oils and I have been hooked ever since.
What drew me to Essential Oils was the fact that for me, a toxin free home is important. Whilst our household products including cleaning, medicinal, skin and beauty products are natural, I love that I can now create my own recipes using essential oils and experiment with various blends at the same time.
Essential Oils are so versatile and I use them in so many ways – I diffuse oils on a day-to-day basis whether its for an uplifting effect in the morning (using a blend of wild orange and peppermint), to help relax and wind down in the evenings (a wonderful bland of Frankincense and Lavender), to help with clear the airways due to winter illness (Easy Air), or just for a beautiful scent that happens to also have therapeutic benefits (love the Ylang Ylang and Lime) – just to name a few. You can also use the above blends on your pressure points and soles of feet to i.e. boost energy or balance your mood.
I have also used Essential Oils in my cooking (both savoury and sweet) to add extra flavour. Have a look at my recipe pages to see how these oils can take recipes to the next level with my Peppermint Infused Dark Chocolate Bark or my Ginger and Lemon Crunch. Watch this space for many more ways to incorporate Essential Oils into your cooking.
There many, many ways that you can incorporate these oils into your daily life, and once you get started you will wonder how you ever lived without them. I am constantly learning how to further apply these to my daily life through topical, aromatic and internal use. Not only do I use these on a day-to-day basis but my husband and daughter also realise the benefits of these oils and are using them more and more.
After using these amazing oils for a few months, sharing them with friends & family and realising the amazing benefits I decided to become a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA (more on doTERRA below). This way I can share Essential Oils with even more people and help people (like you) integrate them into their life and see the therapeutic benefits of these amazing oils.
Why I love doTERRA over other brands
doTERRA is a wonderful company that produces a diverse range of pure, high quality Essential Oils that you can use for you and your families wellbeing. They are also committed to improving the conditions for those people who produce the oils making a positive difference in the lives of the Farmers, Harvesters and Distillers involved in the oil production.
doTERRA sources the oils from over 40 countries around the world and more than half of these are considered developing countries. Humanitarian work is one of doTERRA’s core values and the company is very transparent about their entire process.
To ensure that all the small scale farmers in these countries are treated ethically, doTERRA has introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing. If you are keen to find out more on this, click here.
I really love the fact that doTERRA oils are so safe to use on your whole family and they are also one of the most ethical companies I know.

Are you ready to see the therapeutic benefits for yourselves – follow this link to see my upcoming classes or contact me to find out more.
I host various classes each month in my home. During these intimate sessions I will give you an overview of the most used and most versatile oils and allow you to smell these oils and try them for yourself. I’ll show you how you can use them for your emotional and physical health and how you can replace toxic beauty and cleaning products with these amazing oils.
I’m also part of ‘The Essentialists’ team. We are a group of lovely ladies who all share the passion for Essential Oils. Together we also hold retreats and get-togethers around NZ to help educate and share the benefits of these oils.

I also offer one-on-one Wellness Consultations to discuss your health concerns and determine how Essential Oils can benefit your wellbeing.
