When we look at all the new research and investigation that is going on with different products in the hopes of helping people improve feelings of calm and rest, you have probably seen products such as CBD oil and Copaiba. Although the two products are very different, the research is compelling, and we continue to hear about the great results people are having as they continue to reduce the toxic load in their system and look for more natural alternatives. In this Zoom video Susie and Dena talk about Copaiba just after it was released and why it is such an effective cannabinoid.
When it comes to CBD, please do your research. It is often presented as an essential oil, however that is not the case. The CBD paste is extracted from hemp plants, processed industrially, and then remixed into other oils and presented as a natural product in snacks, drinks, and other methods. The risks that are present in CBD products should also be researched. Many CBD products that claim to have not THC have been tested otherwise.
We have been very happy to have a powerful cannabinoid solution in doTERRA Copaiba essential oil blend, and it has a wide variety of uses! This is not a single species of essential oil, but rather a blend of three different species: Copaifera reticulata, officinalis, coriacea, and langsdorffi species. Please let us know if you have any questions. Copaiba essential oil can be purchased in our online store or at a great discount if you enroll as a wholesale member.
As Susie and I look back on the many years of being involved in various businesses, the one that makes us the happiest is the side gig that eventually became our main source of income. Success in this business was not just about trial and error, it had a lot more to do with being tenacious and having an end goal that we always dreamed of reaching. One of the things that helped us was getting involved with personal development and reading stories of how others achieved their amazing results.
One of our favorite stories was written by Jordan Adler in his book Beach Money. It became very clear after reading his book that Susie and I were on a very similar path, and that if we simply could stick to our plan and keep working at it, eventually we would get there. And that is exactly how it happened.
We could not be more excited to show you our new project called Momentum Makers! This is a group of very successful network marketers who all have amazing stories that will inspire you and give you tips on what you can do to stick to your plan and get the results you are after. We are so happy to be part of this book with Jordan and cannot wait for everyone on our team to be inspired by it as well.
These stories are not people from just one company, but literally the most successful people in the industry today from multiple companies, countries, and backgrounds. We all work the business in different ways, with different products, but shared a dream of being successful one day and will show you how we got there. This amazing network marketing book will be out soon so please order yours today!

We're excited to be relaunching our blog and getting back into using our website as a better communication tool for our team and those who are interested in doTERRA and essential oils. Some of you may know that years ago we took down much of our website and just never really got around to fully refreshing it again. We used Zoom and phone calls for team communication, but will now be posting monthly updates here.
This month's video talks about the 2020 doTERRA 'Pursue' Convention Sept. 10-12. We also get into some well deserved team recognition, doTERRA product news and more. Finally, we have a few business tips to share and want to let you know we want to help everyone on our team reach their goals with doTERRA.
2020 has simply been an incredible year of change. It has changed the way we live and how we do business. As we pivot in the way we do our business, we're happy to confirm that our mission has stayed the same. We're always looking for like minded people who want to help others improve their life by reducing toxins in our environment and drawing closer to natural products like essential oils. Let us know how we can help you!
Certainly, no one could have expected the incredible challenges Wellness Advocates are facing in the year 2020. As things are changing all around us and we are navigating through times of social change, pandemic level virus, and anxiety not experienced in most of our lifetimes, the truth is this is a time of unprecedented opportunity. We are using this time to rethink how we are living our life and doing our business, including what we can do to support everyone in our doTERRA team.
So as we get back to blogging (which is something we had been doing a long time ago but stopped because we got busy with other parts of the business), we are eager to start focusing on sharing oils and helping people build a more stress-free future again. The timing has never been better, and we feel an incredible sense of duty to help people with the amazing products we have been blessed with.
How can we share essential oils when we are all locked up in quarantine? The truth is sampling has always been the most effective means to help people experience doTERRA essential oils. We will explore and share tips and how this can be done in upcoming posts.
Are essential oils relevant in the current health climate? There is never been a better time to focus on more natural and sustainable wellness products in your home life and fitness routine than now. doTERRA is perfectly positioned to help people get rid of many toxic elements in their life and improve their overall sense of well-being.
Is the doTERRA business opportunity worth pursuing? Again, who wouldn’t be interested in a work from home situation that has been proven to earn a sustainable income and help people at the same time? There is no better opportunity now.
We have always imagined that this would be our future, to continue to help people in our essential oil business. We also look forward to helping you in any way possible. Please reach out to us with any questions and stay tuned!

dōTERRA posted a really nice question and answer featuring Susie and I. During the interview, we were able to share some of the experiences we've had over the years as we've tried to grow and maintain our essential oils business. You can view the article on the dōTERRA web site by clicking on the dōTERRA logo below.
dōTERRA is an amazing company and we really had fun giving the interview. Susie and I hope you enjoy reading it!
I wanted to share a video from KUTV (Salt Lake City, UT) that made me feel really good about the way dōTERRA gives back to local communities.
Cardamom is typically used to help soothe occasional stomach discomfort and I really like knowing that when Susie or I reach for our Cardamom, we're also helping the farming communities of Guatemala, where dōTERRA harvests Cardamom.
dōTERRA's Healing Hands Foundation built much-needed stoves in people's homes so they could cook without the harmful side effects like burns or smoke inhalation of open-flame cooking. In the interview, Kirk talks about the Co-Impact Sourcing program where dōTERRA collaborates with local communities to create a responsible sourcing arrangement that significantly enriches the lives of the local residents. I really enjoyed the interview, I hope you do too.

I was reading about the Gorkha Earthquake that hit Nepal in late April of 2015. The Wikipedia account I read was really heart-wrenching. I wasn't aware of the domino-like effect the quake had on the surrounding area! In addition to the main 7.8 quake that killed more than 8,000 people and left more than 800,000 homeless, there were several major aftershocks affecting even more people. The earthquake even triggered avalanches on Mount Everest and the Langtang Valley, causing more loss of life. I can't even imagine what those poor people were going through.
Being a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate, I was happy to hear non-profits like CHOICE Humanitarian and the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation were there to provide support to the Nepalese after the earthquake. They provided food and other needed items to help people during their crisis. I was glad to know that I was, in some small way, aiding that relief effort through my support of dōTERRA's products. You can take a look at their relief effort here.
Many of you know that I've been on a real health kick since moving to Florida, and losing weight was a big part of that. The health benefits of eating non-processed foods has been well known for quite some time. I read an article on dōTerra's web site that was really inspiring and thought you'd like to read it. The article contained a couple of really great links that I'll include below.
1. "What are the Health Risks of Overweight and Obesity?"
2. "Asthma and Obesity"
