The Impact of Intent
Whether it's, herbs, supplements, medications, or nutritional protocols - many can be more effective when they are synergized or supplemented with other things.
The exceptions are prescribed or OTC medications that are synthesized and manufactured only to affect symptoms. Not surprising, these drugs are ignorant. Not smart at all. They are engineered for their process, and that's what they do. Nothing else. Whether it is helping or hurting the body.
There are supplements and natural products, such as essential oils that not only work well with - but flourish while using with other supplements or synergizing efforts to get the maximum efficacy from the original product.
Many such synergizing efforts might be to "get extra rest", or to combine with a healthy diet, or use another supplement to enhance efficacy.
An example would be a common cold. For an oiler that has very limited oils, he might use peppermint to help clear congestion. However, it might be suggested that he find additional oils or blends like lime, oregano, or on guard which can reduce mucus, or inhibit viral growth, or help clear sinuses. Used together they can be more powerful that peppermint alone.
But what about synergizing actions that maybe not considered main stream or normal?
Some oilers synergize with prayer or thanks and gratitude. Others with fasting, or quite simply... intent.
Can intent change the effectiveness and frequency of an essential oil or blend? The fact is we live in a harmonious and coefficient universe. Our thoughts and faith, or actions, our doubts and fears, or intentions... All have an effect on everything.
My theory is...
If you think it won't help, it probably won't.
If you doubt it will help, I doubt it will.
If you fear it won't help, it likely won't.
If you think it might help, it might help.
If you know it will help, it will.
Oils amplify intent.
This applies to the one giving as much as the one receiving. Have you ever timidly given someone an essential oil or supplement hoping it will relieve them of an ailment or sickness. Then your fearful to following up because, "what if it didn't help"?
Will there be a difference if you give someone an essential oil or supplement believing it will help them, then explain exactly how they should use it, that it WILL help, but they need to be consistent, always believing?
Then follow up and if they were expecting more from the oil, explain that it may be necessary to switch up to an oil that might be more effective for your body. These oils do work, and you just need to find the one that works best for you, then give it time to work.
If you are sharing the oils, ask if you can apply them. Help the person relax, calmly share your belief in how they work while you're applying the oils. Share your faith in the oils with them. As you magnify the intent of the oil, and share your confidence in them, it will increase the faith of the receiver.

It is an axiom that eventuality been a light that turns on above the head of almost all successful business builders in doTERRA. At some point successful builders will be drawn to understand that doTERRA is a product driven company, and that the product is quality and can be a brilliantly successful tool for those that use it correctly and trust it. In this issue we will explore the importance of doTERRA's essential oils being the hub of successful doTERRA business builders.
Kindly remember we rotate every issue between business builidng and essential oil education. This issue is a business building issue, but you will still find testimonials about doTERRA products found in EVERY issue.

Advertising as an IPC
doTerra has provided many tools to help us be successful in our essential oils businesses. It is up to us to take advantage of them and take the reins as we press forward as product consultants. The theme that has seemed to come from this newsletter is to "open your mouths!" Don't be ashamed of what you do and how you feel about them. If someone asks what you do, and you hesitate, you need to clear some blocks. doTerra essential oils are amazing, effective and work fast. Be proud of that. If you are trying to build your business, there are some things you can do.
|"It's all about the oils."|
Not another MLM!
When Wendy and I were invited to attend the first doTerra meeting ever, we left with mixed feelings. We had both had bad experiences with network marketing companies. We never had to discuss when asked to be a part of an MLM company, the unspoken answer was a unanimous "no way". But after having just experienced the oils, and hearing the vision and desires of the executives, we knew that to not be apart would be a decision we would regret the rest of our lives.
And so we embraced, and engaged. We decided to put 100% of our effort into doTerra, never setting a bench mark, and never looking back. We moved forward with a realization that this would be a remarkable company and that the oils would change our lives. That effort has paid off more than we ever imagined, and doTerra has met or exceeded their goals every step of the way.
Good Side Effects
As doTerra has formed an identity, the thing that we have always loved about the company and that has remained a constant, for the most part, is that it is first and for most an essential oil company. The opportunity to make money is like a good side effect. So many MLM companies are about how much or how fast you can turn a profit. What we have seen over and over with ourselves and people on the everything doTerra team is that as IPC's, if you put the product first, the business opportunity flourishes.
That's not to say that people have not been able to push the comp plan first and have success building a team that way, but our personal opinion is that IPC's will never see their greatest potential begin to materialize until they discover that "it's all about the oils" first.
doTerra prides itself on not being the "run of the mill" network marketing company. If you go to a meeting, you will not get a lead in about how much money you can make... or if you just bring three people in... or the start up costs are only $500.00. doTerra does not ask for blue sky start up or franchise fees. There is a very reasonable cost of $35.00 for a back office web site, then as an IPC, you get the opportunity to save up to 50% or more and very minimal costs or no costs for business tools. Any additional money you spend starting up as a new IPC will pay for product, and usually at a deep discount.
If you go to a doTerra event or meeting it will be about essential oils, their use, their efficacy, what CPTG is. If there is a meeting about the business opportunity, it will usually be following an oils meeting or a separate meeting all together. Why? Because it IS all about the oils.
Why is "being about the oils" so important?
There are start up companies every day. The success of any company depends on a good product and return customers as much as anything. If there isn't a good product and good service, then the business will not last. It can have the smartest executive team, the worlds best sales team, and top of the line branding, but eventually if the product is not good the customer will not return.
This is where retention comes in. Companies that have return customers will flourish. doTerra has one of the most impressive retention numbers in the business. Looking further, the EverythingdoTerra group has the highest retention number of any groups. Nearly 70%. doTerra as a company is at about 65%. These are incredible numbers, and the result is a growing, thriving company that quarter after quarter continues an impressive upward trend.
Why education is so important?
When the executives of doTerra decided to start and essential oils company, they looked at all possible sales models. One option was retail sales. They talked about the pros and cons, and quickly realized that with the learning curve required to properly take advantage of these powerful oils, that one-on-one training was required.
If you sold an oil off the store shelf, by law, documentation with the oil (let say... peppermint) would be very restrictive in what it could say that it was good for.
However, if I helped sell peppermint oil to a neighbor, I could tell him that peppermint can stop hiccups, it has relieved me of anxiety, and angina. Along with some other oils, it has gotten rid of my allergies, and it helps open my airways. It is cooling and helps me stay alert if I get drowsy, and this is how I use it for those things...
These things could not be included in documentation that came with an essential oil off of a store shelf. For this reason, it was wisely decided that doTerra's essential oils would be sold by network marking, word of mouth, face to face teaching. As we focus our groups on educating other oilers on the use of essential oils, there begins a cycle that leads to an overall increase in health and wellness.
It is after you have had your own experience, that you get the bug to share the oils. If your motivation is deeply rooted in a personal experience, you are excited to share what you have found with others.
After you have had your own experience, and are actively helping others have their own experience, your confidence and knowledge of essential oils continues to grow. You have more experiences, you get better and teaching others about the benefits and all during this learning cycle you will notice the Health and Wellness of yourself and your family begins to dramatically improve.
The Cycle of Health and Wellness
1. You begin to have experiences of your own. (Experience)
2. You become enthusiastic about sharing oils with others. (Share)
3. You grow in your confidence of the use and efficacy of essential oils. (Utilize)
4. You and others are motivated to be lifetime customers. (Retention)
5. You see your over all health and wellness improve. (Overall health and wellness)
This is the purpose behind doTerra. To bring essential oils to the world. Being able to have your own business and make money is a nice side effect, but our experience is that if you build your business based on the benefits of the comp plan, your business will be less stable, however, if it is ALL ABOUT THE OILS, it will bring abundance not only in overall health and wellness, but also an abundance of prosperity.
