I get it, high quality, pure essential oils are not cheap. The first time I looked at the prices I was "How much!?". I bought a couple of oils (Breathe & Peppermint, I think) at retail price and was immediately impressed with the quality and effectiveness of them.
I then purchased a wholesale account and another couple of oils, so benefited from the 25% discount. I then drew up a list of oils I'd like to try and bought 2 or 3 per month.
This wasn't the most cost effective way to purchase the oils, but it was a way that worked well for me (I now have quite a collection of oils, something for pretty much every occasion, though the ones I tend to use the most are shown below).
The image below is of the top ten oils regularly purchased from doTERRA, along with some of their uses.
The Family Essentials starter kit includes all 10 of these oils in 5ml bottles and works out at £11.04 per bottle (Inc VAT). Plus you get a free Smart & Sassy blend.
If you join as a wholesale customer during April with either the Family Essentials kit (5ml bottles of the Top Ten oils pictured above) or the larger Home Essential kit (15ml bottles of 9 of the oils above, 5ml bottle of Deep Blue + plus a diffuser), not only will you receive Free wholesale account membership worth £28, 25% discount of all items for 12 months (with no obligations to buy anything if you don't want to), and free access to some fantastically informative & supportive Facebook essential oils groups...you will also earn an extra 50 loyalty points which you could redeem on any doTERRA product.
So, what would you spend your 50 free loyalty points on? Some ideas are below;
