Purchasing options: wholesale or retail?
doTerra enrollment questions answered
Are you feeling apprehensive about getting into doTerra because you worry that you'll have to buy each month? Are you wondering what it means to "enroll" with doTerra? Are you unclear about what LRP and LLV are?
I understand. There's so much information to take in when you first start with doTerra, but please believe me that soon it will all be so clear and seem so easy. Hopefully, your questions will all be answered below and if not, please feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to help.
Do I have to become a member, or enroll, in order to use doTerra's products?
Absolutely not. You can purchase products retail just like you would on amazon.com or any other online store.
So, why would I want to become a member?
Wholesale membership gives you 25% off of the retail prices for an entire year.
Do I have to buy each month?
Not at all.
In fact, you never have to buy anything else after your initial order if you don't want to (though, I can't even imagine.... :-)
However, if you find that you love the products so much that you want to buy each month, you can participate in the Loyalty Rewards Program which will give you up to 55% off and earn you free products. Click here to find out more about this.
Do I ever have to sell products or represent doTerra?
You do have the option to take it a step further and share the oils with people, knowing that you are doing a service by helping them to better their lives as well. Want to learn more? Contact me! I'm happy to guide, mentor or even just answer questions.
What is the cost of enrollment?
There is a $35 enrollment fee the first year. The second year it is $25 but it comes with a free bottle of Peppermint!
So, basically, it's just like being a member of Costco. You pay the yearly fee and enjoy the discount. It's really that simple.
What is the difference between Wholesale Customer and Wellness Advocate?
As a Wellness Advocate you can earn an income with doTerra by sharing the oils with others.
Can I enroll if I'm in another country besides the United States?
Definitely! Just choose your country from the pulldown menu when you go to the enrollment page.
What if my country is not listed?
If you have someone in the US who would be willing to ship your package to you, just enroll as if you were in the US and put their address.
What is an enrollment kit and do I have to purchase one when I enroll?
doTerra has some great offers and discounts for new enrollees. They put together several packages of doTerra's most popular products which makes it really easy to begin your journey with doTerra in a comprehensive way that will have you covered for whatever may arise. The membership fee is rolled into the price of a kit. You are not obligated to start your membership with a kit; you can just pay the membership fee (by selecting "Introductory Packet" when checking out) and then order individual products, but the kits offer a great discount.
If you check out the kit and they don't have exactly the combination of products you would like, you can purchase a basic kit like the Home Essentials and then supplement your order with other oils "a la carte".
How did you enroll?
I enrolled with the Family Essentials Kit. (Previously called the Family Physician's Kit). These are 10 of the most useful oils that support all of the major systems of the body. You save $36 by buying this kit. Here's a page that gives 150 uses for the Family Physician Kit
I went through about half of the oils in this kit in less than a month and I wound up ordering more that same month! In fact, I ordered enough in that second order that I was pleasantly surprised when doTerra sent me some free products along with my order. I have placed an order every month since then and have earned and redeemed about $3,000 worth of free products. Want to see how?
When I went through the Family Physician kit so quickly, I was wishing that I had gotten the Home Essentials kit, which has the same oils but in the 15ml size bottles instead of the 5ml size . The Home Essentials kit comes with a diffuser, which is an absolutely indispensable component and one of the most powerful ways to use the oils. You save $86 by buying this kit.
If I had it all to do again, though, knowing what I know now, I would definitely start with the Natural Solutions kit. Among other benefits, you save $98 by purchasing this kit.
The Natural Solutions kit has so many of the products that I now use on a regular basis:
*the yummy OnGuard toothpaste to which my dental hygienist gave the thumbs up when she read the ingredients and saw the difference it was making in my gums
*the Deep Blue Rub - a lotion that kicks IcyHot's butt!
*the Past Tense roll-on which is the only thing that keeps my sinus headache at bay
*the Clary Calm roll-on which is my best friend for helping to regulate my hormones
*the Lifelong Vitality Pack supplements (talk about essential for wellness).
*the fractionated coconut oil which is great for diluting the oils so they can go farther when massaging larger areas or applying the oils on children and infants
*the AromaLite diffuser, which is my favorite out of all 5 of the diffusers I own!
*the OnGuard hand soap - A friend says that she now looks for excuses to wash her hands!
*the TerraZyme digestive enzymes - so important for good gut health
*the OnGuard beadlets - These little tiny "orbs" (as my friend calls them) pack a little punch of immune support while freshening breath and waking you up.
*the HD Clear foaming skin soap and roll-on which is great for minor blemishes or full-on problem skin
*the awesome new Breathe vapor stick
*Correct-X (antibiotic ointment)
There are several oils in this kit that are not included in the others. I could not live without my Balance oil to keep me even keeled and grounded. Citrus Bliss, Serenity and AromaTouch are other oils that I use daily. Lemongrass is great for maintaining healthy connective tissue, among other things and Purify is great for cleaning the air of yucky smells (not to mention taking the sting out of bug bites.)
This kit also comes with a few sample size bottles so you can fill them from your bigger bottles and carry them around more easily. (doTerra also sells some really cute keychains for this purpose). The wooden box is a really nice way to store your oils.
Aside from being the best value for your money, this kit is the best if you're really serious about natural health and wellness and you want to completely make-over your medicine cabinet with natural solutions. You will be so well equipped to take charge of your health care with this kit.
One of the key benefits of this kit comes when you decide to participate in the Loyalty Rewards Program, which is basically like a frequent flier miles program. It is an optional free program which allows you to accumulate points for every purchase you make (you even get points for your shipping costs!) so that you can get a ton of free products and earn up to a 55% discount on all of your purchases.
