Trying to compress a week's worth of learning and experiences into one blog post was a challenge...but I did it!
Here are my 4 top things from the dōTERRA Essential Oils Convention!
This September I got to hang out with some of my health coach and essential oil-loving friends to experience the dōTERRA Yōu Convention!
This is my third time attending dōTERRA's annual Convention and, needless to say, this time did NOT disappoint.
With over 35,000 attendees, science forums, special keynote speakers, musical performances, and a massive product showcase, it was pretty rad.
If you get the chance to go to dōTERRA's Convention, DO IT!
Below, you'll find some of my favorite highlights from the week - and I saved my favorite for last. 😉
1. New Essential Oils!
This year, dōTERRA released a total of 6 new essential oils and 3 new essential oil blends.
The new Yoga Collection, featuring three proprietary blends (Anchor, Align, and Arise), developed in collaboration with Elena Brower.
Rose, Jasmine, and Neroli, available pre-diluted in fractionated coconut for maximum efficacy when used topically.
dōTERRA also released a new On Guard Sanitizing Mist (which eliminates 99.9% of bacteria and other germs on the skin) and the new Lumo Diffuser which will be available October 2, 2017, as well as announced a revamped Essential Skincare line that will be launched in November 2017!
2. Revolutionizing Healthcare
It doesn't take much to know that the current healthcare system in the US isn't working. Out-of-pocket costs are rising and accessing quality care in a timely manner is increasingly difficult for many Americans.
dōTERRA is leading an innovative movement in healthcare in which medical providers take an integrative approach to keep their patients healthy and thriving. Proven methods of healthcare delivery - including traditional western methods, essential oil treatment, and wellness services - are utilized in an effort to prevent disease and maintain optimal health.
As a health coach, it was exciting to see how dōTERRA is trying to help integrative healthcare become more accessible and mainstream.
They even announced that they just broke ground on a medical center on that will be part of dōTERRA's HQ in Pleasant Grove, UT!
3. Nutrition & Supplementation
dōTERRA's primary mission is to help people be well. Although there is a definite emphasis on using essential oils to support health, this mission also means that there's room to help support people nutritionally, which is why dōTERRA offers its Lifelong Vitality Supplements.
There was a TON of great info that is difficult to compress into part of this blog post. I'll be sharing more information in more detail soon!
In the mean time, Dr. Dan Leverenz (DO) was one of the featured guest speakers - you can watch his 3-part series on doōTERRA's Lifelong Vitality Supplements below.
4. The EOS Pop-up Shop
Lastly, one of my favorite things about this year's dōTERRA Convention was the EOS Pop-up Shop, hosted at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art!
EOS has truly been a labor of love.
The company's mission is to support a natural lifestyle - beautifully and affordably. As one of the co-owners, it's been so awesome to see the second EOS Pop-up Shop be so successful!
The EOS family is made up dōTERRA Wellness Advocates from all over the world who have come together to collaborate to make using and learning about essential oils easier and more accessible.
This year, we introduced new Luxe Container Collections and featured all sorts of talented artisans who make handmade goods to go with essential oils! We also collaborated with local juice shop Vive Juicery to make fresh, organic, cold-pressed juice accessible to convention-goers.
High-quality essential oils deserve high-quality accessories, am I right?
The Pop-up Shop was beautiful and it's been so amazing to see all the messages of gratitude and love.
WHY DŌTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS?
There's something I like to call the dōTERRA difference.
More than any other essential oil company I've come across, dōTERRA goes out of their way to provide the most pure, potent, and therapeutically beneficial essential oils.
dōTERRA employs a self-imposed standard for purity called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade - all of dōTERRA's essential oils must meet this standard to be sold and used. In order to be labeled Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (or CPTG for short), a batch of essential oil must pass eight different tests - read up more on the process here!
Because of this testing process, you can be confident that dōTERRA essential oils are safe, pure, and effective to use in the ways described above and why I choose to use them in my integrative health coaching practice.
Each essential bottle also includes a Quality ID # that you can use to track where your oil was sourced and view the GC/MS test results for the batch. How cool is that?!
From my experience, dōTERRA essential oils are the best out there.
