A game changing, community building, travel reimbursement program

Are you doing Diamond Club in 2018?

What is Diamond Club? In short a travel reimbursement program that runs from Feb through to May (four months), participants can also provide extra incentives to classes or one on one attendees that physically show up to a Diamond Club event, these are covered by doTERRA and create urgency and excitement!!

It is an incredible opportunity to have doTERRA Corporate and up to three of your upline leaders sponsor you to travel and spread your business across Australia, building community and relationships and creating serious momentum and growth in your business.

In my experience there is absolutely NOTHING like Diamond Club to get your business cranking. I did Diamond Club in 2015 when I was still very new to doTERRA and took my business from the rank of a brand new shaky Gold to Diamond in the four month period.

Testimonials

These are the experiences of people in our team who have done Diamond Club over the last two years. The growth has been absolutely amazing. For example this year 2017 our teams overall volume was around 500,000 in January, by the end of Diamond club it was over a million. Our entire team had DOUBLED again in just that four month period. The number of rank advancements and new members we had was INSANE!!!! It is seriously the best thing you can do for your business.

“I went from silver to gold in DC. I flew all over the country and stretched myself out of my comfort zone. My team grew from 250 to 500 in that time and my income doubled. There were definitely challenges but I would do it again for sure. So much momentum, made so many new friends and nurtured new builders. And my team is now spread all over the place.”- Charlie O’Connor, Platinum

“DC taught me how to step up and be accountable with myself and my builders. New advocate numbers grew so fast and the connection I had with team members I had never had a chance to meet before, so so amazing. It was tough at times but worth the few rough days. I had would do it again in a heartbeat.”- Megan Limpus, Gold

“The growth achieved in my business through the support offered in Diamond Club was amazing. I went from the rank of Premier to Gold during my time. My team grew from around 80 people to over 450 during DC in 2016, across Australia. The opportunity gave me the chance to connect with my leaders across Australia, and support them in growing their teams. An opportunity not to be missed!”- Chantal Roelofs, Platinum

“A must! I explain it as sprinkling magic fairy dust all over your team . We double ranked from Gold to Diamond in the first month of DC and close of business May 31st we had created 1 Diamond, 5 golds, 5 Silvers,10 Premiers and far too many elites and executives to count . That energy continued into June and we created another Diamond leader, more Silvers and 5 new golds as we became a Blue Diamond Team . Our team grew from 1805 members at the start of February to now a team of 5483 and volume has risen from 84,163 to 353,136 OV ! That’s nuts 🥜!!”- Jackie Isles, Blue Diamond

“My builders emerged during diamond club, and I went from doing all the work myself, into this awesome collaborative effort that saw our team and volume more than double rapidly. So many seeds were planted then that are now paying off, one of those being my 4th leg to diamond!
I quickly learned I needed to step up and get organised, that there was zero space and time for fear, limiting beliefs and procrastination- that old way of being was suddenly really boring! (Don’t drop the ball on your Personal development during diamond club!!)
My confidence in holding classes soared, and this idea that I could actually be a leader started to become a reality.
I am so grateful I said yes to DC opportunity.
Was it hard- yes!
Would I do it again? In a heartbeat.”- Chelle Luke, Platinum

“DC literally opened up doors to so much possibility that I hadn’t even dared to imagine. Our team more than doubled in size & volume skyrocketed. Being able to offer free bonus oils to new members was awesome & was so blessed to meet team members far & wide. It really helped allow new builders emerge & shine. Multiple rank advancements all round.”- Natalie Sanderson, Gold

“Diamond Club is THE BEST opportunity to launch and see the snowball effect come to life. DC totally solidified my business and streamlined my activity. When you do something over and over, you inevitably become good at it, you know what works, what doesn’t and you work out ways to make things better for everyone involved. You know what you’re doing, your confidence grows, and you automatically step into leadership by guiding and collaborating with others. My team doubled in size and volume through DC. I started as Gold and ended as Gold… BUT within 4 months ranked Diamond. If you’re looking for a turbo boost to the higher ranks, commit, do it.”- Alison Bartolo, Diamond

“DC was literally the best thing I could have ever done for my business. I travelled all over Australia doing classes with my little family in tow. The relationships that were formed and solidified during DC with my team have been incredible. The self development that is part of the journey of diamond club is second to none. I learnt to be incredibly organised, flexible, my leadership skills blossomed and my confidence and belief in myself has grown so much. I feel that I also became extremely confident in teaching classes and was also able to pinpoint what worked and what didn’t work. The growth in my team has been remarkable and our team has tripled in size since DC began earlier this year. As a now solid Diamond team I feel that DC played a huge part of that and I am truly grateful for the experience.”- Amy Innes, Diamond

“It’s the step where your interest turns from Hobby… to Business. It lays out before you everything it takes for you to become accountable to yourself, to shift your vision into how you can help your team grow, & view the Action Orientated Activity necessary to become a Partner with the Company.”- Deborah Husbands, Platinum

Try not to get overwhelmed by all the information below, have a read of it a few times and chat to your uplines. People can literally do Diamond Club just in their weekends and many have done! I have team members who’ve done it while still working another job and with little ones in tow.

I did it breastfeeding a six month old and with my four year old too and we still had VERY little money at that stage. It was certainly challenging at times but SO SO worth it for the relationships strengthened, momentum and growth in our team.

Do some money magnet tapping and be grateful for the money going out for MORE to come back your way!

The best value kits with the MOST savings to give you natural remedies that WORK and help you overhaul your home and go low tox

The best value essential oil and low tox product kits to overhaul your home!

Empowering Yourself

It’s such an empowering feeling for me to have totally natural, safe, products in my home that I know I can turn to support myself, my partner and my two beautiful boys with every day things we experience as a family, even better that I get to teach others about them and help them empower themselves too!

Things like getting run down, struggling with sleep, tummy troubles, congestion, tension, scrapes, bites, and sore muscles, moods, focus and so much more and know that there won’t be any adverse side effects, so I don’t have that knot in my stomach when I use products I know could be detrimental to our health and the environment long term.

Something else that is hugely important to me as I have learnt over the years is using cleaning and personal care products without all the endocrine disrupting, carcinogenic and otherwise seriously dodgy ingredients. Plus we actually save LOADS of money and are supporting farmers and growers as well as entrepreneurs like me and plenty of others rather than massive corporations who unfortunately don’t have our best interests at heart.

Nature’s Solutions Kit

So that’s why I am SUPER excited about this brand new kit, the Nature’s Solutions Kit because I think it is the PERFECT combo to overhaul your home and it includes massive savings.

RRP for all these incredible products is $1124.42, when you get this kit it costs you $655.95 (incl shipping & gst). That is a saving of $468.47!!!

Plus when you place an order of 100pv value or more the following month (approx $120 worth) you will receive 100 free product points back to spend on whatever you like (over $100 value!!)

AND you fast track your loyalty rewards program and start on 15% back on future orders. Meaning you are getting 40% off the RRP price which will go up to 55% off over time!

A-Z Series

Winter Is Coming.. Get Ready With These Top Natural Remedies!

Winter is fast approaching. Right now it’s pouring rain outside and school has been cancelled! (every child’s dream haha).

With the weather changing as a mum I want to have things on hand to protect and support my kids naturally. As a business owner I need things to keep my immune system running at it’s best and to get me back up and running quickly if I become run down. I wanted to share these natural remedies with you as they have worked so powerfully for us.

For me eating quality, fresh food, getting some sun exposure for Vitamin D, spending time in nature, doing Pilates, singing, dancing, laughing, playing and of course having that flexibility to eat something delicious for dessert when I go out are all an important part of staying well. As is rest and managing stress which I use essential oils to support me with and reducing my toxic load by using natural household and personal care products.

When essential oils came into my life I discovered another incredible tool to add to my wellness toolbag that I’d previously totally underestimated and didn’t understand the value of.

So what are essential oils?

Essential oils are pure extracts from plants. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs and are nature’s defense mechanism for plants and cells. They are highly concentrated so a little goes a very long way and they are a safe, effective, affordable, and an alternative to many synthetic products/remedies.

The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents or chemical compounds found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific therapeutic benefits.

It’s not about replacing traditional medication. Though many hospitals, research centres and practitioners are starting to really understand and value just how incredible essential oils can be. There is so much science and research emerging on these incredibly powerful and natural aromatic compounds. You can find out more at Aromatic Science. It’s about respecting the value of having emergency and medical care where necessary, but also having a natural alternative to turn to before that is needed.

How do they work?

17437469_1457384490973121_7499518678459744256_n

Plants produce essential oils to fight or ward off threats in their environment, and they can do the same for our bodies. What is incredible and unique about essential oils is that they can actually penetrate the cell membrane to work with threats inside the cell as well as outside of the cell. In this way they can support you to take care of your health naturally.

I had the absolute pleasure of listening to Ben Lee speak at a seminar recently and he shared-

“Essential oils don’t heal you, your body knows how to heal itself, essential oils support that process.”

My top picks for Winter

On Guard

Our On Guard Protective Blend would have to come in at number one for sure. It is a blend of Wild Orange, Cinnamon, Clove (nature’s most powerful antioxidant by a long shot), Eucalyptus and Rosemary.

You can diffuse it (I recommend our Petal ultrasonic diffuser). It comes with a light that you can turn on or off and has 1, 2 and 4 hour settings. It turns itself off when the water runs out and is cold steam so safe around kids. Diffusing it will help ward off environmental threats. I also dilute it with some fractionated coconut oil, our safe and natural carrier oil and apply it to mine and the kids soles of feet and down our spine.

It also makes for a powerful throat gargle/mouth rinse. The clove supports dental hygiene and can help soothe a sore throat in seconds.

We’ve found that we get run down far less often than we used to and when we do are super fast to bounce back.

Easy Air

Easy Air is our Respiratory Blend and my next favourite pick for Winter. It’s incredible for sinus and lung support. It is a blend of Laurel, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Lemon, Cardamom, Ravintsara and Ravensara.

My favourite ways to use this are by making a petrochemical free rub. Dilute it with the fractionated coconut oil and apply to the chest, back and soles of feet if congested. You can also diffuse by the bed, with a few drops of Oregano and On Guard, on it’s own or with Lavender for extra sleep support.

I also like putting a couple of drops on the floor of the shower and letting the hot steam clear my sinuses with the oil. Or placing a few drops in a bowl or pot of hot water and putting a towel over my head and breathing deeply. You can also smell it straight from the bottle or put a drop in your hands, rub together and breathe deeply! It also helps with snoring.

Frankincense

Frankincense has health benefits a mile long, you can check out plenty of studies and info at www.pubmed.gov. It provides incredibly powerful immune support and can oxygenate and support us at the cellular level. It is great for aches and pains as well and powerfully soothes a sore throat. I apply it topically to the outside of my throat with a little Lemon essential oil.

Another good one to apply to the soles of the feet, down the spine and to diffuse, it is also very calming and grounding and good for nourishing the blood and the brain.

Tea Tree

Sourced here in Australia, Tea Tree is a great one to soothe sore ears, which always happens to me if I have too much dairy or if I get congested. Never put essential oils in your ears but you can dilute and apply behind the ear and down the mastoid bone or place on a cotton wool ball and place over the ear. It also has powerful immune supporting properties and can be used to naturally clean the house.

Peppermint

With it’s high menthol content peppermint is exceptionally invigorating for the lungs and can open and clear sinuses in seconds. I like to put a drop on my thumb, place on the roof of my mouth and inhale deeply. It can also calm the stomach and head/neck tension as well as cool the body.

Lemon

Lemon is another great one for soothing an irritated throat, add to a teaspoon of raw honey, or boil some water and brew with some chopped up garlic, ginger, a peeled lemon and a drop of lemon essential oil.

You can also layer on the outside of your throat with frankincense. Lemon also has powerful respiratory supportive properties and is great diffused with Lavender and Peppermint for relief from seasonal changes. I also take a drop of each of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint if my eyes are puffy and red and I’m sneezing a lot and put it on the roof of my mouth and inhale deeply, long lasting relief within seconds!

Oregano

Oregano is one of nature’s most powerful immune supports. Even farmers are using oregano essential oil in their chicken feed to help protect their chickens and support their immune systems!

It is a VERY hot oil so always dilute a drop in a tablespoon of carrier oil and keep to the feet for applying topically. I also diffuse this one as it is such a powerful immune bomb and respiratory support. Great diffused with Easy Air or On Guard!

All of these essential oils and blends are in our most popular starter kits which save you massively even below the wholesale price.

Autistic Meltdowns in Adults

Autistic Meltdowns in Adults

I am writing this post for my partner and people who love me who might find it difficult to understand my behaviour sometimes because I can’t verbally communicate what is going on for me.. and for all other adults with Autism or people who love or engage with adults with Autism, so that people might understand more and be able to help more.

Firstly understand for us that tension mounts over time as the pressure of stimulation from things we find challenging becomes too much to bear. If possible avoid melting point by having alone/quiet time/safe time as much as possible away from noise, lights, humans, shops, post offices, place of work, study, socialising, or whatever is stressful for the person.

Avoid too many appointments and commitments in a week, space things out with ample breaks. Use essential oils or other tools of support. Deep breathing, tapping, meditation, love, Harry Potter.. or whatever the person loves and feels comforted by.

Understand that meltdowns are a normal part of living with Autism and can actually be a HELPFUL release and bring things back down to a comfortable place once they are over. I heard this at a Minds & Hearts forum with one of the most world renowned experts on the topic Tony Attwood and it was a huge relief to hear him say this. My meltdowns were ok and a release for me. But it’s not so easy for the people on the outside of them..because let’s be honest I can be a massive asshole when I’m melting down and it could be very easy to take my behaviour personally. It’s not.. I love you and I’m sorry and I feel deep shame, regret and embarrassment for my behaviour once it’s over.

What To Expect

Here’s some of the things you can expect from a meltdown in adults with Asperger’s and High Functioning Autism taken from this post. I don’t experience all of them and it could be different for each person.

The adult version of a meltdown may include any of the following (just to name a few):

  • aggressive behaviour in which the individual reacts grossly out of proportion to the circumstance
  • angry outbursts that involve throwing or breaking objects
  • banging your head
  • tapping fingers or repeated movements of hands
  • withdrawing
  • not being able to verbally communicate what is going on for them
  • hiding and rocking
  • crying
  • pacing back and forth
  • road rage
  • talking to yourself
  • threatening others
  • walking out on your spouse or partner
  • yelling and screaming

On the mild end of the continuum, the adult in meltdown may simply say some things that are overly critical and disrespectful, thus ultimately destroying the relationship with the other party (or parties) in many cases. On the more extreme end of the continuum, the adult in meltdown may attack others and their possessions, causing bodily injury and property damage. In both examples, the adult often later feels remorse, regret or embarrassment.

Meltdowns, usually lasting 5 to 20 minutes, may occur in clusters or be separated by weeks or months in which the Aspergers adult maintains his/her composure. Meltdown episodes may be preceded or accompanied by:

  • Chest tightness
  • Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head
  • Increased energy
  • Irritability
  • Palpitations
  • Paranoia
  • Rage
  • Tingling
  • Tremors

A number of factors increase the likelihood of experiencing a meltdown:

  • A history of physical abuse or bullying: “Aspies” who were abused as kids have an increased risk for frequent meltdowns as adults.
  • A history of substance abuse: Aspies who abuse drugs or alcohol have an increased risk for frequent meltdowns.
  • Age: Meltdowns are most common in Aspies in their late teens to mid 20s.
  • Having another mental health problem: Aspies with other mental illnesses (e.g., depression, anxiety disorders) are more likely to have meltdowns.

The meltdown is not always directed at others. Aspergers adults who experience meltdowns are also at significantly increased risk of harming themselves, either with intentional injuries or suicide attempts. Those who are also addicted to drugs or alcohol have a greatest risk of harming themselves.

Aspergers adults who experience meltdowns are often perceived by others as “always being angry.” Other complications may include job loss, school suspension, divorce, auto accidents, and even incarceration.

How Can You Help?

If you, they or others are obviously at risk physically call the police.

Otherwise first and foremost please do not PERSONALISE the behaviour. Pulling away. Withdrawing. Not being able to verbally communicate what is going on for them. Screaming. Trying to run away. Shouting insults. These are all part of the meltdown. They are not a personal attack or because we don’t love you.

If it is your partner or loved one and they will allow you please just BE WITH THEM. Hold them if they are open to that. Stroke their hair if they are open to that (I love it, some may hate it). DO NOT expect them to talk. Ask instead if they would like to write it down or text/message you. If not be ok with that. You do not need to fix. Just be there. They need you but they can’t express this need. For me just being held until I calm is best.

If they are open to it apply essential oils to their feet, Balance and Vetiver can be particularly helpful and Peace to the heart chakra, back of neck and wrists.

If you don’t know the person again, be with them, maybe sit beside them quietly, don’t ask them to verbally communicate. Offer them your phone or a notepad to see if they would like to write. If not again just be with them until it passes. Again offer to apply essential oils if they are open to it or if you know reiki or another form of energy healing offer that. Otherwise just quietly being with them is good.

Seek outside support for them if appropriate. Cognitive behaviour therapy has been found to be particularly helpful as well as meditation, physical movement such as yoga, pilates, dance or whatever they enjoy. And of course as mentioned plenty of down time, good food, deep belly breathing and love.

And know that we are sorry for the shit we say and do when we are melting down..

If the behaviour is abusive again seek outside assistance.

I hope this is helpful for you.

My Favourite Tapping Videos for Ultimate Success

My Favourite Tapping Videos for Ultimate Success

Many of you know that I am a HUGE fan of Brad Yates and how much of an impact he has had on my life. Whenever I provide training, mentoring and advice to anyone I recommend tapping. And those who take this advice seriously and implement on a DAILY basis have massive, life changing results with it.

I truly believe I wouldn’t be where I am without this key tool in my life to help me break through limiting beliefs and release negative emotions holding me back. Seriously, take the time to even do one video a day, they are generally less than 10 minutes. If you can work up to several a day even better!!

Two examples of people that HAVE used this several times a day in my team, they’ve both achieved Diamond in a year. This is a POWERFUL tool. It might seem whack, but just trust me, follow along with what Brad says, repeat out loud after him and tap where he taps.

Here is a description of what Tapping/EFT actually is from this site The Tapping Solution.

“The body, like everything in the universe, is composed of energy. Restore balance to the body’s energy, and you will mend the negative emotions and physical symptoms that stem from the energy disruption. Tapping restores the body’s energy balance, and negative emotions are conquered.

The basic technique requires you to focus on the negative emotion at hand: a fear or anxiety, a bad memory, an unresolved problem, or anything that’s bothering you. While maintaining your mental focus on this issue, use your fingertips to tap 5-7 times each on 12 of the body’s meridian points. Tapping on these meridian points – while concentrating on accepting and resolving the negative emotion – will access your body’s energy, restoring it to a balanced state.”

You may also use an essential oil or two to anchor this in. Choose one intuitively and diffuse it as you tap or take a drop or two in your hands, rub together and inhale deeply. These are my favourite videos to support your journey to financial freedom, self love and success.

Top 5 Natural Remediesfor CampingTravel

Top 5 Natural Remedies for Camping/Travel

If you’re like me you love spending time in nature and getting away with friends or family to go camping or head on a beautiful road trip. I love rock climbing and bush walking and breathing in the fresh air.

But there are some things that are pretty annoying, like getting covered in bites, sun burn, cuts and scrapes and sore feet and tired muscles. So I’ve put together a list of my top 5 natural remedies as I prefer to steer clear of products with toxic/synthetic and harmful ingredients in them.

1. Ice Blue Soothing Blend (Deep Blue if ordering from the US warehouse)

Available in a rub, roller bottle or pure oil that you can then dilute with fractionated coconut oil. This blend is fantastic to support muscles and joints. Ideally apply it BEFORE a long walk or physical activity and then after as well. I love using the roller bottle on the soles of my feet before I go for a walk or if you’re a City girl like me that loves going out dancing in heels as much as she loves going for a bushwalk apply it before you hit the town and you’ll be able to dance all night.

AF4I2702edit

The rub (petrochemical free base) is super easy to use and extremely fast acting and effective on tired muscles and joints. It is a blend of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus and these oils work synergistically together to soothe, cool and restore.

2. Helichrysum Essential Oil

I always end up scraping myself when I’m rock climbing or cutting myself on a stick or something when I’m out bush. The kids often end up with minor cuts as well. Helichrysum is amazing for this!

Last time I was out I cut my finger and whipped out the Helichrysum, it’s called liquid stitches for a reason and not only stops the bleeding but helps significantly with the pain as well. It can also help soothe the skin if you end up getting a bit too much sun.

Helichrysum has been used in herbal health practices since ancient Greece and the oil is highly valued and sought after for its many health benefits. It’s best known for its restorative properties to the skin. Also referred to as the Everlasting or Immortal Flower, so if you would love to keep your skin looking it’s best wherever you are with something beautiful and natural it’s great to have this one on hand. Great for both blemishes and fine lines.

AF4I2535edit

3. TerraArmour Repellant Blend (Terrashield if ordering from the US)

Unfortunately commercial insect repellants are super toxic and dangerous to use, especially for children and pregnant women but should not be used by anyone. One particular common chemical in them is DEET. A known neurotoxin.

But things get tricky when it’s so hard to find a natural alternative that ACTUALLY works.

Luckily doTERRA has formulated TerraArmour. It comes in both a 15ml essential oil blend of Ylang Ylang Flower, Nootka Wood, Cedarwood Wood, Catnip, Lemon Eucalyptus, Litsea Fruit, Arborvitae Wood essential oils and Vanilla Bean Absolute in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil and Tamanu Seed Oil that you can diffuse or dilute and apply topically but recently they introduced it in a convenient, pre-diluted spray bottle. It’s extremely effective even against the horrible massive mosquitos we get here in Queensland and it’s 100% natural and safe to use.

4. Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is known as the swiss army knife of essential oils because it has so many uses! The most common use when you’re out in nature is to soothe sunburn and soothe any kind of skin irritation or bite. It will take the redness and heat right out and soothe the sting. Even if you get stung by a nasty green ant or bee!

Of course it’s also fantastic for supporting a good night’s sleep (sprinkle on the pillow if you’re somewhere without power- works just as well as a diffuser) and can support the nervous system and anxious feelings.

It also promotes clear breathing and airways and if you’re someone that is sensitive to season changes and gets the sneezes try putting a drop of Lavender on your tongue and putting it on the roof of your mouth. It works instantly!

5. Digestzen Digestive Blend

When I go camping it’s inevitable that I’ll end up eating white bread spaghetti jaffles, a few too many marshmallows and kabana and jatz. Of course it’s all about balance and I allow myself to enjoy these things and reminisce on my childhood but my tummy doesn’t always respond favourably.

That’s why I always stay hydrated and use a glass bottle with a few drops of Digestzen plus apply it to my stomach each morning and night diluted in fractionated coconut oil and massaged in a clockwise direction. I wouldn’t go anywhere without it!

This unique blend contains Ginger, Fennel, and Coriander to help ease occasional stomach discomfort, including motion sickness and indigestion, while Peppermint, Tarragon, Anise, and Caraway aid with digestion and help maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract.

As mentioned, one of the ingredients in Digestzen is Ginger so if you or the kids get car sick or nauseous this is a great one to put on the wrists or on an aromatherapy bracelet or if you’re going anywhere by boat make sure to take this one as it really helps with motion sickness! I also do quite a lot of flying with business and this helps the weird plane bloating I always get.

So those are my Top 5 Natural Remedies for Camping/Travel. I could list about 20 more of course! If you would like to get your hands on these stunning, pure, ethically sourced, sustainable, essential oil based products head here.

Happy Travels!

Alison Bartolo- Now Owner of Healthy Munchkins & Site Cafe, Mum and doTERRA Silver Leader (average annual earnings for a Silver biz $26k as she continues to build for financial freedom)

af4i7552“Jessie has challenged my beliefs and woken me up to myself and to the power within me to create magic. She speaks complete and honest sense, has massive insight into business and personal development and her no-BS approach speaks right to the heart and asserts me into action.

Having these life-changing oils in my life is one (incredible) thing but being part of a community that loves and supports each other, is a true testament to Jessie’s leadership. Her relentless drive, direction, purpose and vision of serving from the heart, makes this a whole new way of life where I’m now well on the way towards a life filled with abundance – financially, emotionally and spiritually.

af4i7496Shannon Morgan- Psychologist (previously), Now Owner of Purely Thriving, Mum and doTERRA Diamond Leader (average annual earnings for a Diamond biz $203k)

“Working with doTERRA for me means I can live a truly abundant life in every respect. Not a day goes by that I don’t feel a huge sense of gratitude for my life right now and for having been introduced to doTERRA by Jessie a little over two years ago. Since beginning my journey with doTERRA I have changed my life (and the lives of countless others) in so many ways…..physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially. In October last year, I was able to leave my soul-destroying corporate job to pursue my business full-time!

I get to spend each day helping others, which is something I’ve always felt called to do. I get to work with the most incredible people who align with my own values and uplift, love and support each other. I’m blessed to be able to travel Australia and the world sharing these life-changing gifts of the earth with others. At the rank of Diamond, my constantly increasing residual income has now reached six figures and will ultimately reach seven figures in the coming years. All of this would not have been possible without the incredible support that Jessie provides to her team. Her encouragement and guidance have been instrumental for me in building my doTERRA business.

If you are considering getting started with using and sharing doTERRA’s essential oils and/or building a doTERRA business to supplement, replace, or multiply your income, I have two words for you…..DO IT!!!! You will not regret it. You will transform your life and the lives of others in ways you can not even imagine and one day you’ll look around you and realise you are living a life you truly LOVE.”

Jodie Simpson- School Teacher (previously), Now Owner of Essential Empowerment, Mum & doTERRA Platinum Leader (average annual earnings of a Platinum Biz $106k)

“I took a long time to get started with doTERRA. I was reluctant to ‘enrol’ because I worried about what the expectations would be when I did. All I wanted was top quality oils at the cheapest price I could.

As I was researching doTERRA for many months, I had many choices for who I would enrol with and I chose Jessie Reimers. Why? Because she was honest, real and raw. She didn’t pretend to know everything. Instead she took us on her journey of getting to know essential oils with such passion and a commitment to learning everything she could.

image

Within a month I went from: “I just want top quality oils at the cheapest possible price.” To “I’ll just go onto the Loyalty Rewards Program so that I can get the most benefits from my doTERRA account, who doesn’t want freebies?” and then “I love these oils so much, my friends and family NEED them too.”

And then the unimaginable happened. Jessie saw something in me that I never knew existed. She saw a business woman, a community leader and a business partner. She had faith in my ability to create my own business and walked the path with me, picking me up when it felt too hard, developing my business skills and supporting my personal development.

Jumping out of your comfort zone and building your own business because someone sees greatness in you is what good network marketing is all about. doTERRA is a heart-centred company encouraging heart based businesses lead by people wanting to make a positive change in our world. I am grateful for the opportunities that have come with my desire for top quality essential oils.”

Amy Innes- Founder of Healthy Belly, Happy Mind, Health Coach & Graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Mum and doTERRA Platinum Leader (average annual earnings of a Platinum Biz $106k)

image-1“Jessie is an incredible leader and I feel extremely blessed to have partnered with her in my business. Her passion for health and wellness shines through with everything she does. She is an amazing mentor, role model and friend and I am lucky to have her in my life. doTERRA for me has been an incredible life changer both financially and in health and I love that I am able to create a heart centred business helping others.

If you have been thinking about jumping on board with doTERRA for a while, I recommend jumping right in. Jessie genuinely wants to help and support her team to succeed, her encouragement and guidance is second to none and I am grateful to be a part of her essential oil community.”

Chantal Roelofs- Marine Biologist (previously) Coach & Consultant, Mum & doTERRA Platinum Leader (average annual earnings for a Platinum biz is $106k) as she works towards Diamond and beyond!

“I was initially attracted to work with Jessie through her ethics, integrity and visibility of her social campaigning and social advocacy work (thinking to myself….for this person to align herself with dōTERRA essential oils….they have to be an amazing sustainable and ethical company – I have to find out more about this!!!). And I am so glad that I did. I’ve marked 6th April 2015 down in my diary as the start of an exciting adventure with her and it has turned out to be so much more than I could have ever imagined. I was so blown away with the quality of the oils – I knew instantly I wanted to build a business around them with Jessie. I certainly didn’t expect this journey to be as rewarding and fulfilling as the reality it has been. The oils – purest and most potent in the world – have become a natural solutions lifestyle that supports my family in all aspects of our lives, and we will continue to use them for maintaining the wellbeing of our family (our immunity has never ever been this good!!) and for the emotional support (for sleep, stress, lifting mood, focussing on work etc) and making a whole lot of natural solutions products with the power of the oils. We have replaced SO many things we would have normally bought from the supermarket with very high quality pure oils – so I now save more money by buying the oils, rather than purchasing alternative products from shops and pharmacies. And being a foodie – they have taken my cooking to a whole other level (raw carrot cake bliss balls with cardamom, cinnamon and ginger oils anyone ??)

af4i8097Within 1 year, with Jessies support and guidance, I had replaced a full-time income, and I am supporting many other women in my team to do the same. I have the pleasure of leading a team across Australia, Germany, Canada, New Zealand, to support them in their oil use and for those who choose (at anyone can at anytime) to build a business. My business will be replacing my husbands income in 2017 – which is a dream– so we are creating the life with the financial freedom we crave, and we want to experience a whole lot more with our girls (road trip with a camper-trailer around Australia coming up !!).

When you say “yes” to working with Jessie – you get someone who will provide you with more belief in you- than you have in yourself. Jessie gets you to rise up to smash through any doubt or limiting belief to be the best version of yourself. She is generous in her resources in leadership and training, and will over-deliver what you need to reach your aspirations and dreams in creating the life that you want to live. I have such huge gratitude for this amazing light filled human being in my life. If you feel curious about saying “yes” to working with Jessie. Do yourself a favour and jump in. She will teach you to swim just beautifully (and I am very happy to be here coaching you along the way too).”

ten-reasons-you-havent-got-a-doterra-accountyet

Ten Reasons You Haven’t Got a Doterra Account YET!

  1. You think you will be locked in to ordering every month.

Opening a doterra wholesale account puts you under absolutely NO obligation to order every month, it simply means you get our products, drop shipped straight to your door at wholesale prices, to me it makes absolutely zero sense to pay retail for something when you could get it at LEAST 25% off and you save even more when you order one of the kits.

We do have an INCREDIBLY generous loyalty rewards program if you DO choose to order regularly and buy things you’d have to buy the toxic/synthetic version of anyway like toothpaste, skin care, cleaning products, personal care products and loads of things you’d normally buy from a pharmacy or supermarket.

You can learn more about the OPTIONAL loyalty rewards program here. It means that you can actually save up to 55% off the RRP over time and if you are wanting to earn commissions (totally optional) you will need to place 100pv order each month but if you change your mind this can be edited down or completely canceled at any time without any costs or hassle, you can also actually pay for these orders with your commission money, I only ever paid for my initial kit, everything else I’ve ever bought from doterra has been paid for with commissions or free product points!

The product value is beside the wholesale prices in the full price list. It can’t be the dollar value as it is a global company so we work things out based on pv or product value.

lrp

2. You don’t know how to use essential oils and think you won’t use them once you have them

One of the massive benefits of opening an account with a Wellness Advocate like me or the person that introduced you to the oils is the support and access to resources and information you get (please check with the person you are joining with as to what they provide).

I have created an incredible Facebook group for my team filled with resources and webinars to educate and empower people about the essential oils and products. There are always loads of classes and training events and the Modern Essentials book and app provides extremely comprehensive information even when you are out and  about you can look something up on your smart phone and know straight away how to use it.

I had the same concern when I opened my account that I wouldn’t really use them and didn’t know how to as I’d never used essential oils in my life aside from burning clary sage when I was in labor with my second child. However I now use several oils and products every single day of my life and can’t imagine life without them.

And I certainly had the thought as I was interested in the business opportunity that I wouldn’t know enough to be able to share and sell the oils to others and as I had no previous business experience that I wouldn’t be able to do it.

Absolutely not true! It’s not about knowing everything about every essential oil and product, you are not a practitioner! It’s about giving people basic information (resources provided) and educating them to know how and where to find the information they need to empower themselves! All training is provided and you will be surprised how much you learn as you begin to use and share the oils.

I truly do use the oils every single day and get my monies worth. I take Digestzen our Digestive blend absolutely EVERYWHERE with me and rub it clockwise on my stomach or drink a drop in water to support my gut health. I use oils to balance my moods and help keep me calm and centred. I am wearing the InTune focus blend as I type this blog and diffusing Motivate to keep me on track. I woke up and did my skin routine with the Verage skin care collection and brushed my teeth with the On Guard toothpaste, once I have had breakfast I will take my supplements and I always have my keychain on hand so I have what I need everywhere I go, e.g. Lavender for bites, scrapes, burns, Easy Air (Breathe) if I need some extra respiratory support, Balance for grounding and calming etc. Check out this post for over 100 uses for our ten most popular oils and blends.

3. You don’t want to be forced into selling the oils and be a part of a pyramid scheme/join the cult

You absolutely do NOT need to sell oils to have a doterra wholesale account and myself and team pride myself on avoiding that selling/ramming the opportunity down peoples throats at all costs. We want to serve YOU and your needs so if you are just wanting to use the oils for personal use we will support you to do that, if you are wanting to supplement your income and cover the costs of your oils/earn some extra cash we can support you to do that and if you are wanting to replace or multiply your income we can assist you with the resources and knowledge you need to make that happen!

Doterra is not a pyramid scheme (those are illegal). I have done a full blog post on this which you can read here. Nor is it a cult. We love our essential oils and value the company, values, opportunity and the people it attracts but we are fully aware that essential oils are not the be all and end all.

Wellness is about covering a number of bases, food, movement, sleep, reducing toxins, supporting mood, community/social inclusion, financial freedom and more. Essential oils can actually support all of these areas which is why we love them so much but we do NOT claim outrageous cures and claims and the very large majority of Wellness Advocates I have come across have a very sensible, grounded approach to the oils and business. We simply love what we do and aim to educate and empower others so that they can make an informed choice about whether or not they would like to be a part of what we have.

4. They cost too much/You can’t afford it

For me it’s about priorities, there is no greater investment for me than investing in mine and the people I love’s health. Each 15ml bottle contains 250 drops of essential oil and they are so potent and pure that you really only need use a drop at a time (diluted in carrier oil such as FCO where appropriate).

So the Home Essentials kit you really are looking at cents per drop, Lemon for example is .05 cents per drop, even Frankincense, the most expensive oil in the kit is 34 cents per drop. When used appropriately your oils will last and you won’t even question the investment once you have them in your life. Being able to turn to something that is natural, toxin free and SO effective and fast acting to support yourself and your family really is priceless. For me it is such an empowering feeling knowing I can help myself, my kids and all the people that come to me to learn more to support our health naturally.

I was in a pretty dire financial situation when I started doterra but once I had experienced the life changing effects of the oils I simply knew I needed them in my life so I made it happen. I sold stuff we no longer needed and scrimped and saved. If it means something to you, you will simply find a way and then I also used the investment to provide financially for my family!

Doterra prices are actually extremely competitive in the market and when you think about what it takes to source some of these oils from their natural habitat globally through our co-impact sourcing initiative and the fact that these oils are 100% pure (not 1ml essential oil 11ml multi-purpose liquid, whatever that is) like many other brands, you really are getting absolute value for money and the purest, most potent essential oils on the planet.

Some people think that because it is a direct selling or multi-level marketing company the prices are jacked up to compensate Wellness Advocates who sell the oils. Absolutely not true. They simply take the same budget that a regular company would use on tv, print, billboard, retail advertising and instead invest it in every day people who are advertising their product through word of mouth, workshops and social media like I do. Same budget, allocated differently. Word of mouth is still the most effective form of advertising on the planet. If you love a movie you tell your friends to go see it! If you love essential oils you tell your friends about it, they want to open wholesale accounts like you and pay the same price you do AND you get paid for the privilege of telling them about something you would’ve told them about anyway!!

5. They don’t support Australian farmers and aren’t an Australian company

We do support Australian farmers actually! Our Tea Tree and Eucalyptus oils are both sourced right here in Australia and over time hopefully even more will be added to the range. For me it is far more preferable to source oils globally where they naturally thrive rather than trying to grow plants in regions where they don’t originate. The energetic and therapeutic value is much much higher and we get to make a massive difference on a global scale. Our oils are sourced from over 40 different countries around the world and over half of them are developing countries.

While the company originates in America when you open a wholesale account with an Australian Wellness Advocate you are also supporting many Australians like me who are building a life for themselves and their family and helping many other Australian’s supplement their income or create financial freedom as well. It is truly amazing how much of a difference you can make in people’s lives over supporting massive corporations who really don’t care about the ingredients in their products or the producers of said product.

6. They aren’t Certified Organic/CPTG is made up

No our essential oils are not Certified Organic, simply because organic certification is not even available in many of the countries we source from and it would end up making the end product FAR too costly to go through this process in so many different countries and even state to state the certification can vary.

Unfortunately the essential oil industry is extremely unregulated which is why doTERRA went to such lengths to create their own standards. What I love about this though is that EACH individual batch is third party tested. So it’s not just doTERRA saying hey look! We have the purest, most potent essential oils on the planet! Without any evidence or backing. Independent parties are verifying this which is extremely important to me.

At the end of the day our essential oils are completely pure, they are free of pesticides, chemicals and anything else you would be concerned about in terms of organic certification. You can learn more about the CPTG standard here.

7. You already buy a different brand of essential oils

If you already love and use a brand of essential oils that’s great! I get a few from local Australian companies that aren’t yet available from doTERRA such as Lemon Myrtle and Ironbark. I would just love if everyone experienced our oils because they are so pure and as soon as people smell them they experience something truly amazing. Working with the therapeutic value of our range and the proprietary blends really is a mind blowing experience so I just encourage people to have an open mind, try something new and see what they think, you will be surprised!

8. There is no science to say that essential oils actually work

I love when people say this because it just simply is not the case anymore!!! Essential oils are becoming more and more mainstream by the day and have a myriad of science and research to back their efficacy and value.

In fact because our essential oils are so pure and the potency and therapeutic value can be trusted, they are being used in studies by some of the most World Renowned Research facilities on the planet. There is a plethora of published journal and medical articles on PubMed a Government publication about essential oils and you can also check out Aromatic Science.

Essential oils truly do work on the cellular level, they are lipid soluble so can penetrate the cell membrane and work both outside and inside our cells. They have powerful natural chemical constituents that work synergistically with our bodies to support various systems and organs and they also work on the emotional level, as we smell something it enters the olfactory system and travels to the limbic system, the emotional centre of our brain, having a powerful effect on our mood. Much greater detail is available in the Modern Essentials book which is an amazing resource for anyone wanting to learn more and explore the world of essential oils.

9. They are dangerous to use/you aren’t qualified to use them

One of the reasons I love using essential oils on myself and for my family is because they are actually SO much safer than other conventional products I could be using. Like anything, understanding how to use them safely and effectively is of course essential. But understanding the ingredients and side effects of other products, there is no question about what I would choose to use.

One of the main concerns with essential oil usage is simply skin sensitivity. This can be avoided when you properly dilute the essential oils with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil.

A generic and simple rule is 1 drop of eo to 10ml of carrier oil for infants, one drop eo to 5ml carrier oil for kids and one drop eo to 2ml carrier oil for adults. Of course this is just a general guide and need not be the blanket rule for everyone and every situation but I always prefer to dilute for topical use as it saves money, goes a lot further and reduces risk of skin sensitivity, if you apply an essential oil straight to the skin much of it will be lost in evaporation so using a carrier oil actually increases the effectiveness of applying your essential oil.

In recent years there has also been a lot of uproar about the internal use of essential oils. In particular many people claim that using essential oils internally will damage the mucous membranes. This fear has been found to be unfounded. You can learn more about this here.

Ultimately we are not treating, curing, diagnosing, preventing or prescribing essential oils to anyone. It is important that people understand how to use oils safely (which we support them to understand) and that they check with their health care practitioner if they have any concerns.

Essential oils are safe to use with most medications, again check with your health care practitioner for specifics.

10. Your partner/husband doesn’t believe in them and doesn’t want you to waste money

Where possible it would be a fantastic idea to have your partner experience the essential oils first hand, we call Ice Blue the man converter for a reason. Nothing compares for tight/sore/tense muscles.

I also find the strategy of actually sitting down and having a genuine and open conversation about why this is so important to you really helps, if you look someone in the eyes and express what this means to you and why you think it is such an important investment for the family they are much more likely to understand where you are coming from. Maybe show them this article, watch some of the doTERRA videos on youtube with them, attend a workshop with them if possible and ultimately express your heart to them!

I hope this post has helped give you a greater understanding of the truth and possibilities with doTERRA. If you are ready to open your very own wholesale account head here or send me an email at info@getafreshstart.com.au if you have any questions or contact the person who introduced you to the oils.

How to Manifest EXACTLY What You Want

So what is it?

What exactly is manifestation? I believe we create our reality with the thoughts we think and science actually proves it. I first came across this idea when I read the book You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay and then even more profound for me the book It’s The Thought That Counts by David R Hamilton PhD.

Prior to that I thought I was a victim of crappy circumstance, I played the blame game, it was all everyone else’s fault, poor me, excuses, it’s too hard, whine, whinge and moan and live a pretty dismal, angry, sad existence.

Then I began to learn that I had FAR more choice in the matter than I ever realised or thought possible. It was a terrifying realisation really that I created my reality, it was SOOOO much easier to blame everything else.

The fact is when I think thoughts like I’m a loser, everyone hates me, people are out to get me, I’ll never be successful, I’m not smart enough, people don’t like me, no one respects me, I hate life, the Universe is a cruel place, people aren’t nice, why would anyone want to follow me.. those are the experiences I will create for myself as that is the energy and vibration I am giving out.

If I think thoughts like I am incredible creator, people love, honour, value and respect me, people want to follow and do business with me, people think I am an incredible leader, people listen to what I have to say, people want to and are excited to work with me, the Universe is an amazing, abundant, kind, loving, safe place, I am legendary, I am brilliant, I am amazing, I am kind, I am loved… those are the experiences I will create for myself as that is the energy and vibration I am giving out!!!

Of course this doesn’t mean fun little assignments won’t come in to teach me interesting lessons along the way, but I have the power to respond to these with love and compassion and see it as THEIR stuff and also as a reflection for something I may need to work on inside myself.

Clearing out the garbage and limiting beliefs

If you do really want to use your incredible energetic power (and we ALL have it, you may have just not tapped into it yet) it is necessary to remove the blocks you may have from believing in your own greatness and ability to attract that which you truly want in your life.

For me the most powerful way to do that is to do Tapping/EFT DAILY, not just when I can be bothered every now and then but DAILY. My favourite tapping teacher is the incredible Brad Yates. I love his down to earth style and they are such short, easy to follow videos, as you become more experienced you can create your own tapping sequences. Here is one I created.

Here is a description of what Tapping/EFT actually is from this site The Tapping Solution.

“The body, like everything in the universe, is composed of energy. Restore balance to the body’s energy, and you will mend the negative emotions and physical symptoms that stem from the energy disruption. Tapping restores the body’s energy balance, and negative emotions are conquered.

The basic technique requires you to focus on the negative emotion at hand: a fear or anxiety, a bad memory, an unresolved problem, or anything that’s bothering you. While maintaining your mental focus on this issue, use your fingertips to tap 5-7 times each on 12 of the body’s meridian points. Tapping on these meridian points – while concentrating on accepting and resolving the negative emotion – will access your body’s energy, restoring it to a balanced state.”

My favourite playlists by Brad are the Success & Motivation, Emotional Wellbeing & Money just go in and pick one each day that is calling you and do it anytime, whether its first thing when you wake up, in a carpark in your car somewhere in the day, when your kid is having a nap, whenever it suits, but make time for it daily if you are after life changing and extremely transformational results.

Focusing on how you want to FEEL

When I am wanting to create a goal in my business I focus on how achieving that goal will actually make me feel and day dream, create vision boards and write down the goal but also more importantly spend a lot of time feeling what that will feel like. How exciting it will be achieving the goal and how it will feel having total financial freedom to not only support myself but change countless other lives, how it will FEEL being able to create my life long dream of traveling Australia and the World educating and empowering people about wellness, abundance, self love and financial freedom.

How it will FEEL seeing those I have mentored and partnered with achieve THEIR goals and dreams as I achieve mine. I dream about watching them achieve, being recognised, their smiles filling their faces and the tears stream down their face as they realise the magnitude of what they have created for themselves and their families and how many lives they have changed in the process.

Focus on creating these feelings in your life right now by doing what you love, making others feel good with your words, service and love and concentrating on joy and what lights you up. The more you allow yourself to feel good, the more joy the Universe will attract to you in whatever way serves your highest good.

Using essential oils to support the process!

As I write this blog I am diffusing 2 drops each of Wild Orange, Patchouli and Ginger at my desk. Wild Orange is the Oil of Abundance, Patchouli is the Oil of Physicality or being present in your physical body and Ginger is the Oil of Empowerment. This is my all time favourite manifestation blend and I also have my beautiful Citrine crystal beside me, the crystal of abundance. I am also wearing my Lucky Bee mandala ring. I also take a drop of each oil in my hand, rub together and inhale deeply before I do my tapping, journaling, manifesting, meditation etc.

You might like to make your own blend. Consider blends like Citrus Bliss the Oil of Creativity, Arborvitae the Oil of Divine Grace, Frankincense the Oil of Truth, Bergamot the Oil of Self Acceptance and anything else you feel particularly drawn to.

Daily journaling

I write down my goals daily, apparently the most successful entrepreneurs in the world write them down twice a day! Remember to be time specific e.g. I am a Presidential Diamond on or before 31 August 2016. This makes me feel amazing as I am helping and supporting so many incredible leaders to create true financial freedom, to step into their light and power, to truly exemplify all the amazing qualities I have always known they’ve had but that they didn’t necessarily see in themselves immediately. I feel overwhelmed with incredible emotion at the lives being supported in mind, body and spirit with these powerful oils and products. I am in total joy that so many women and men are claiming their birth right to live in freedom, abundance, joy, love and community, uplifting and supporting each other and creating total magic in trust, honour and collaboration.

I personally help 20+ people open a wholesale account with 100pv+ order in August 2016. They are passionate about wellness and see and understand the value of these incredible gifts of the earth, the company and the opportunity. They believe in me and are excited to work with me. They jump in and get started immediately, take advantage of the incredible training, webinars, videos and files I have to offer and are loving soaking up all the information. They are confident, caring, loving, a complete joy to be around and make incredible lifelong friends and business partners. They completely embody the culture of uplifting and supporting everyone in their communities and the wider doterra community, whether they financially benefit or not.

They have an incredible work ethic and attitude and understand that building a solid foundation for a business takes time, persistence and consistency. They love helping others, are deeply passionate about the business they are creating, boss at helping people get started with the oils, incredible teachers but also extremely coachable and open to learning, growing, transforming and stepping into their brilliance and light even more.

They do daily personal development and embrace and do tapping, manifesting and work with their oils to uncover their light and help others uncover their light even more. They are creative, generous with their time and resources and collaborate and train people appropriately. Thank you Universe for allowing this to unfold with ease and grace. I can’t wait to meet them and work with them!! I am so grateful for all of the beautiful, amazing, inspiring, courageous incredible souls I already get to co-create with. Thank you for these gifts.

This is just an example of what I would journal so really feel into what you want to achieve each month or each day and flesh out the qualities, values, attributes, feelings attached to that. It will become clearer and more expansive the more you do it.

Trust in the process

Do not slip into anxiety and doubt about whether the manifestation/tapping/oils are having an effect. Remember to stay in joy. Affirm that the more good you create the more will be brought to you. Continue doing the inner work, releasing self doubt through tapping, working with your oils, receiving mentoring, healing, whatever other tools you can draw on to work for you.

Know that you are worthy and deserving of all good and that there is enough for EVERYONE. The more abundance you have the more others will allow themselves to have and the more good you can do in the world.

Imagine how many you can serve when your own financial needs are MORE than covered and you can choose to serve in even more powerful ways. Spirit is abundant and so are you. Time to let the Universe catch up and embrace you with it.

But of course the important thing is to follow up your manifestation with massive, consistent action to support what it is you are wanting to create. Manifesting, tapping and action combined is SO powerful.

Using these tools has played a massive part in creating a hugely successful business in just over two years. I was on Centrelink when I started and am now halfway to a seven figure income, doing what I love, working with amazing people and living the life of my dreams. My biggest joy comes in helping others to create this.

Yours in health & prosperity.
