Becoming a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate offers an exciting opportunity to embark on a rewarding journey of personal growth, financial independence, and holistic wellness. Come with me while I explain the steps to becoming a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate and how you can build a thriving business by sharing your experiences with these amazing products.

My name is Anna, and I am a Wellness Advocate. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to connect with me on Instagram and ask.

Step 1: Understand dōTERRA's Mission

To begin your journey as a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate, you should first understand dōTERRA's mission and values.

Founded in 2008, dōTERRA (a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth”) aims to provide the highest quality essential oils while empowering individuals and communities through sustainable sourcing practices.

dōTERRA oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade and alongside sustainable sourcing, dōTERRA also helps communites through its Co-Impact Sourcing® model and the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™.

Step 2: Enrol as a Wellness Advocate

The next step in your exciting new journey is to enrol as a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate. Click here to enrol with dōTERRA.

It will cost you $40 a year for your membership, but you also get a free Peppermint Essential Oil so it really doesn't cost anything. When you sign up, it's a good idea to choose a starter kit as this will provide you with a selection of popular oils and essential tools to get started. You can choose to just enrol, but if you want to help educate others on the amazing benefits of dōTERRA products you need to use them in your own daily life.

Becoming a Wellness Advocate allows you to build your own dōTERRA business, get up to 30% back in points on your purchases, and free products. There is no obligation however, you are not locked into anything and can choose to spend nothing if you choose.

Step 3: Educate Yourself

Now that you are enrolled as a Wellness Advocate, it's time to learn about essential oils, their benefits, and safe usage. dōTERRA offers extensive training materials, webinars, and online resources to enhance your knowledge.

You can also reach out to your upline (me for example) with any questions you have and they will help you. Our group also has a really cool Facebook group you can become a part of and reach out to others in the group for help, advice and to make connections.

It's also a great idea to attend workshops and seminars organized by dōTERRA or other experienced Wellness Advocates whenever you can. This will help you to keep growing your understanding of the products and their applications as well as new products coming to us here in New Zealand or elsewhere in the world.

Step 4: Share and Connect

Start sharing your personal experiences with essential oils and their impact on your well-being. You might like to create your own Facebook or Instagram page to start growing your business.

Alongside social media, you can also use personal blogs and at-home workshops to educate others about the benefits of dōTERRA products. By sharing your authentic stories, you can connect with people who are looking for natural solutions for their health and wellness.

Step 5: Build Relationships

Building relationships is a crucial aspect of being a successful dōTERRA Wellness Advocate - or any business owner. Take time to listen to your customers' needs and provide personalized recommendations. Offer ongoing support and guidance to help them make the most of their essential oils. By establishing trust and rapport, you can create a loyal customer base and potentially attract new advocates to join your team.

Step 6: Mentorship and Team Building

As your dōTERRA business grows, consider mentoring others who are interested in becoming Wellness Advocates. Share your knowledge, provide training, and offer guidance to help them build their own successful businesses. Their success is also your success, so it's definitely a win-win supporting others in their own journeys.

Step 7: Attend Events

Participating in dōTERRA events, conferences, and conventions can be a game-changer for your business. These gatherings provide opportunities to network, learn from industry leaders, gain new insights, and stay updated on dōTERRA's latest product offerings. These events can also energize and inspire you to take your business to new heights.

Step 8: Set Goals and Stay Consistent

To build a successful business, set clear goals and create a strategic plan. Define your target market, identify your strengths, and outline your objectives. Stay consistent in your efforts, whether it's hosting regular workshops, engaging on social media, or following up with customers. Consistency is key to building momentum and establishing a thriving business.


Becoming a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate offers an exciting opportunity to embrace holistic wellness, make a positive impact on others' lives, and create a successful business.

By following these steps and staying committed to your personal and professional growth, you can build a thriving business, all while sharing the transformative power of essential oils with the world.

Remember, success comes with dedication, education, and a genuine desire to help others achieve their wellness goals - and if you have questions, I'm always happy to help.
