How to Purchase Oils... and how to Join doTERRA!

There are three ways you can purchase doTERRA essential oils.  You can purchase them for the retail price, purchase them as a preferred member and save 20%, or purchase them as an IPC and save 25%.

Purchasing at retail price.

If you'd like to purchase your oils at retail price, please click HERE to start shopping!  The oils will be shipped to your home directly from doTERRA.  You can choose different shipping options as well.

Register as a preferred member.

Registering as a preferred member is $10.  This will allow you to purchase doTERRA products at 20% off retail and to receive Loyalty Rewards Points toward free purchases (explained below).  You can upgrade to to an Independent Product Consultant to receive the full 25% percent off at any time for only $25!

Note: to have the option to sell product via your own doTERRA website, or to be able to earn commissions, you must upgrade to an IPC account.

CLICK HERE to register and select "Join as a Preferred Member".

Become a Wellness Advocate (formerly called an IPC, or Independent Product Consultant)

doTERRA Wellness Advocates purchase products at 25% off retail (wholesale pricing) which is the deepest of all doTERRA discounts.  

Wellness Advocates also have the opportunity to earn an income -- but this IS optional!  NO ONE will hassle you to sell or host doTERRA events.  You can sign up for an IPC membership just to enjoy the discounts and other benefits.

Becoming a Wellness Advocate is $35 dollars for a year membership, and $25 each year to renew (plus you get a FREE bottle of Peppermint oil when you renew your membership!!).  This is very much like how a Costco or Sam's club membership works.  When registering for a Wellness Advocate membership, you can also choose to purchase a kit instead which waives the $35 registration fee, AND you will be saving because the kits are discounted!

1) CLICK HERE to go to the sign-up page.

2) Select Join as a New Wellness Advocate

3) The Enroller ID and Sponser ID boxes should be populated already, and my name (Michelle Beal) should be listed.  If not, enter 661798 in both boxes.  

4) Complete the name, billing address, shipping address, and contact information sections.  NONE of your information will be shared with anyone.  (You are asked for your social security number for tax purposes.  If you make over $600 in a year selling doTERRA products, you will be mailed a 1099 form, as required by law).

5) Select your time zone and create a Virtual Office Password.  Your Virtual Office is where you will be able to manage your account, shop at wholesale prices, and more.

6) Agree to the Terms and Conditions and the Virtual Office User Agreement.

7) Choose your enrollment order.  Here, you can choose and enrollment kit (see all kits and what products are included HERE), or you can select the Introductory Packet option for just the $35 enrollment charge. You can also add additional individual items if you'd like.

A great kit to start with if you're on a budget is the Family Physician and Slim & Sassy Kit for $150 (110PV)!  This includes the Family Physician kit, shown in the image below, which contains 5ml bottles of 10 oils that should ALWAYS be in your home, AND a full bottle of Slim & Sassy!

8) You now have the option to set up the Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP).

With the Loyalty Rewards Program, you will earn points (PV) toward FREE doTERRA products, and you can also get doTERRA's product of the month for FREE with a minimum 125PV order.  (Learn more about the Loyalty Rewards Program HERE.)

If you'd like to set up an LRP order, you can select the products you'd like to include in your first LRP order.  You can change the products you include in your LRP order every month or clear the order all together in your Virtual Office.

**It is best to choose a shipment date for LRP orders from the 1st to the 13th of the month so you are eligible for the product of the month.

You are now registered as a doTERRA Wellness Advocate!

You will recieve a confirmation email with your log-in details.  Use these to scope around and get a feel for your Virtual Office.  Please feel free to email me with any questions HERE.  Have fun getting healthy and improving your life with doTERRA essential oils!!

Friday letters.

First of all, of course... Dear readers and fellow bloggers, it's nice to see and hear from you.  How have you all been?  Where have your lives taken you in the past few months?  I'd love to know.


Dear self, relax.  The weather is nice, life is calming down, things are happier.  (Also, dear stomach, I apologize deeply for the stress, but I'm glad you're healing).

To the outdoors... thank you for providing a comfortable place to escape again.  Nothing heals a stressed mind faster than a quick breath of fresh air, or sleeping with the windows open on a rainy night.

Dear camera, I took you up north last weekend and took some beautiful pictures by the water.  Although, anyone with any camera could, it's so gorgeous up there.  The last time I picked you up was the last time I went to the same cabin, with the same water... which was covered in ice and snow.  How weird to be looking through bright springtime photos of the lake, just to all the sudden stumble upon the snowy winter pictures from December.  Sorry for this, I'll try to keep you at my side more often.

Dear iPhone, sorry you're so full of photos lately, but you've been such a great (much lighter) substitute to my DLSR!  (Just look at all the pictures in this post!)

Dear family and Dave, I wish I could completely express how much it means to me when you all deal with my crap, even when I'm miserable to be around.  You're always there with open arms.  I couldn't ask for more (even though I really ask for a lot).

Also, Dave, thank you for taking me with you to go fishing, even if my line gets stuck and fishing suddenly goes from relaxing to dangerous in one quick cast.

How has life been for all of you lately?  I'm excited to catch up and see where you've gone with your blogs.  I know, I'm acting like I've been away for a year, but I kind of feel like I have!  I miss this.

I've been battling sinus infections, one after the other.  Pollen is not on my side this year.  But I'm battling through it, and still trying to spend as much time outside as possible.  The more winters I experience in Michigan, the more I appreciate the summer months.  We've been having a TON of rain... but I love it.  Especially those little (although intense) storms that come through out of no where in the middle of a sunny, humid day.

I figured I'd share a bit of what's filling up my phone lately... more and more little bits of life. 

So get me up to speed.  Let me know how you all are!  I'm excited to be back, even if (again) it's just for a little while.


I'm still here.

I've had a few people asking where I've been lately... I'm sorry about that!  I've been trying to fix a few issues with myself, which is easier to do behind the scenes.

Most of it has been health related.  I've been focusing on trying to get back into a regimen that I had early last year: wake up, pack a healthy breakfast.... drink more water, take the vitamins that I know make a difference but for some reason still forget to take...

I'm also like a cat when it comes to changes.  Big or little.  Since I dyed my hair almost two weeks ago, I'm all on edge and skittish.

On top of that, everything I eat plays a role in how I feel (and think) about things.  Refined sugars and caffeine are an absolute no-no.  Taking too long between meals has this effect as well... sometimes sleeping in doesn't work out too well, especially after drinking.

Cabin fever.  That's a big one.  I need time outdoors.  If I had the ability to enjoy comfortable weather outside for a few hours a day every day, all year round, I think 99% of this would be resolved... but in Michigan, that's not really possible.

But really, let's be honest here -- people deal with this stuff (and much, much worse) on a daily basis.  They deal with it, and they're just fine.  I can't run around blaming all of the worry on little things around me... I love being in the same state as my family and friends, am I going to move just to get away from the cold?  That's stupid.  Instead of running away from things that make me nervous (insert cartoon image of a scared cat here..... from earlier cat reference), I want to break each one of these down and live like everyone else.

I'm overly critical of myself.  Everyone is... but I really am.  All of this used to be much worse 2-3 years back.  It's gradually gotten better.  Sometimes I just need those little bits of time where I over-exaggerate how bad everything really is, just to bring my motivation back up.  Right after those times is when I make the best changes.

So... that's where I've been.  It's been a little while, but I'm not going anywhere.

How have you all been?  We need to catch up.
