doTerra Oils Review – Can You Really Earn A Living Selling Them?

There are a number of different companies that sell essential oils and claiming that you can make a regular income by promoting their product.

I do use some essential oils occasionally myself but have never considered actually selling them, however after having several invites to join this company I decided to look at what they had to offer and here is my doTerra Oils review.

doTerra Overview

doTerra is a very popular multi-level marketing company that sells essential oils and several other related products. It was founded in 2008 by David Sterling and a group of executives that have backgrounds in either business or healthcare

doTerra means ‘Gift of the Earth’ in Latin and their company is based in Pleasant Grove, Utah.

On their website doTerra state that their company’s mission is ‘To share therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world.’

How To Get Started Selling doTerra

You first need to sign up as a ‘Wellness Advocate’ and the annual membership fee is $35, which is renewable yearly at a discounted rate of $25.

This then allows you to buy any of the doTerra oils at wholesale price, therefore giving you a 25% discount off the retail price.

Essential oils are very popular today, but there is a lot of competition out there as so many people are selling them and there is such a huge variety of different brands on the market.

You can approach your friends and family when you first start selling them, but this is not an avenue that you can continuously be going down.

So if you do want to be successful at selling essential oils you will need to get yourself an online presence and learn how to promote yourself and your business.

There is a support system for Wellness Advocates that includes the doTERRA University which has  educational information including tips to grow your business.

However to be successful in this highly competitive in this highly popular niche you would really need to not only have your own website, know all the different ways how to create interesting and original relevant content and drive traffic to it.

As doTerra is a multi level marketing company the main financial benefits don’t come from the individual selling their product, but by them recruiting a number of other people to do so as well.

Compensation Plan

There are five ways to earn with doTerra and commissions are all related to the product volume bought and sold by each Advocate.
Retail Bonus – You purchase products at a 25% discount off the retail price then sell them.

Fast Start Bonus – For every person that you enroll who pays for a wholesale membership you will earn 20% from any order that they make within their first 60 days and the Fast Start Bonus goes three levels deep.

Power of Three Bonus – You need to personally purchase 100pv on the loyalty rewards program to qualify for this bonus.

You then can earn the following:

  1. First level: $50 bonus when you and 3 recruits on your front line all order 100pv or more in a month with a total of 600pv
  2. Second level: $250 bonus is earned when three of your front line also have three of their own. So if they earn the $50 bonus you earn the $250 bonus.
  3. Third level: $1500 bonus is earned when your 2nd level has three qualified people on their front lines. When each member of this level earns their $50 bonus you then earn a $1500 bonus.

Unlimited BonusThis is the way that you can earn a substantial residual income through unilevel commissions and you have the potential of earning commissions 7 levels deep. – (see the table below)

Leadership Pools – There are seven different leadership ranks’ that you can aim for and these are:

  • Premier
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • Diamond
  • Blue Diamond
  • Presidential Diamond

Attaining one of these ranks’ means that you will also earn shares of the overall performance pool.

My Final Opinion of doTerra

I do think that doTerra offers a legitimate earning opportunity and certain people could do really well with this business.

I won’t be promoting any essential oils in the near future, though I will like many others will be continuing to use them as they do have many benefits.

If you are regularly using essential oils then this could be a really good product to base a business on, however you do need to realize that the people who are earning a substantial residual income are the ones who have a large team underneath them.

Recruiting team members is not an easy task nor is it for everyone, but you will not be able to earn enough money by just selling the oils yourself.

If you are interested in getting into a business like this then to be successful you will need to learn how to promote it and that means first getting yourself a website and then learning the best ways to get quality traffic to that website.
