Our doTERRA Journey

Our doTERRA Journey

October 16, 2018

We recently started using oils as a family. With Kalei and Kili, I found that using oils has helped them with their colds, teething and sleep.

I started using oils for Kalei when we would catch a cold. We tried to avoid giving him over the counter medicines but didn't explore all of the essential oil companies. Like many, I saw these oils available on Amazon or Target and I didn't take the time to do any research. I just tried it, it helped, and I was like okay...

Then comes all those Instagram accounts that promote essential oils - doTERRA and Young Living. I had friends "selling" for both and I was like nope, I'm not going to get caught up in one of those multi-level marketing type businesses. I just wanted the oils. I didn't want to get "trapped" into some subscription that I might not even need or use. 

I'm not going to lie, it took a while for me to get into a good routine of using them regularly. I'm lazy. I have enough going on with the two kids, running a small shop and working full time. I thought, I don't have time to mix oils and make my own blends. 

That's where being a small shop owner led me to Jo from Hui Aloha Aila and Ashley from Gold Shop Society. I watched their IG stories regularly and they made it look so easy to incorporate oils into their daily lives. It also helped that they both sold ready to use blends! 

Needless to say I finally took the plunge and signed up! I am so glad that we did! I thought it was going to cost me an arm and a leg...but it didn't. Months later, I am ready to share what I've learned and what I've tried...

 Our Journey

Prior to 2018 - Used Oilogic Stuffy Nose & Cough and Slumber & Sleep from Target 

January 2018 - Gifted Doterra Blends 

April 2018 - Purchased Helfpul Baby Blends and Diffuser Bracelets from Hui Aloha Aila

May 2018 - Purchased Baby Bum from Gold Drop Society

June 2018 - Enrolled with Doterra - we started with the Family Essentials Kit and Beadlets kit. Looking back, I wish I started with the Home Essentials kit because having another diffuser and larger size oils would have been nicer since I ended up making my own blends shortly after.

Dear Santa,

Remember me...Kili? I wrote to you last year but not sure if you ever got that letter...I didn't get the cords that I really wanted but don't worry, I found some laying around the house.

Anyways, I know it's Christmas Eve and well...you scare the $#*! out of me so I never got to tell you what I wanted.

Holiday Shopping: Hawaii Small Shop Edition
Holiday Shopping: Hawaii Small Shop Edition

November 10, 2019

Over the years I have moved away from shopping at the big box retailers and have supported small local shops. Why? Because I know the work and dedication that these owners put into their products. I like knowing that the money I spend goes back into the local economy. Plus, I love the fact that I can gift some gear that isn't made in the huge bulk numbers that larger retail chains and brands can afford to do.

When packing your bag...I totally recommend to try not to overpack. It is a lot easier said than done but possible. I mean, I had 3 tries so far and I think I finally got it down!
