This first step is critical because, as you know, dōTERRA® essential oils are amazing! Simply picking up and inhaling an oil for the first time can be a wonderful experience!
But there is more you can do to make someone's first experience with dōTERRA essential oils a truly life-changing experience:
Listen and ask genuine questions to find out about them and their unique needs. Check ME™ (books or app) for oils specific to those needs. Allow them to try a sample of a recommended oil for that need. Show them how to find oils that fit their needs in the "Introduction to Modern Essentials®" booklet. Then give them this inexpensive booklet to take home with them. This will enable them to continue to discover their own dōTERRA® oil solutions far into the future!
Giving people confidence to safely and effectively use dōTERRA® essential oils is a partnership between ME™ and YOU.
Read on to discover what YOU can do, and how ME™ can support and enlarge your efforts.
Why YOU are critical!
Your experience is an amazing resource! YOU can explain how you use the oils. YOU can share your experiences. YOU can show them how to have their own successful experiences.
How ME™ Supports & Gives Confidence
Modern Essentials® remains the most trusted resource since the founding of dōTERRA® for several simple reasons:
ME™ offers 75+ years of collective practical experience using essential oils. ME™ incorporates the knowledge of 1000s of medical and scientific research studies. ME™ brings together the wisdom of 100s of articles, books, and conferences from leading essential oil experts, chemists, botanists, biologists, and physical, mental, and emotional health professionals from around the world—both past and present.
Modern Essentials® has distilled all of this amazing knowledge and experience into one easy-to-use reference guide, giving YOU the right tools to confidently and effectively use and share the best information about essential oils found anywhere!
ME™ & YOU Together!
Sharing your experiences overcomes barriers and makes emotional connections with others. Validating experiences you share with science and research from Modern Essentials® makes a powerful logical connection.
Allowing someone to have a positive experience with dōTERRA® essential oils can be as simple as handing them an oil and allowing them to inhale its amazing aroma.
However, for a truly life-changing experience with the oils, a little more effort is needed.
A Basic Approach for Sharing dōTERRA®
We all know that dōTERRA® essential oils are amazing! That's the main reason sharing oils with others works—especially when YOU have related your own experiences with the oils and shown them supporting research and evidence in ME™ for why the oils work.
However, people often walk away from these experiences—holding a sample or two of oils in their hand—and then put these samples away, still not quite knowing how to use them!
Or, worse, they do a quick internet search on how to use the oils and stumble across misinformation and cut-rate oil sources—leading to confusion.
A Better Way
We all know the proverb, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime!" Just handing someone an oil is like handing them a fish. It may fill their immediate need and satisfy them for now, but it doesn't help them tomorrow with new needs. It doesn't teach them new skills that can change their life.
A much more effective approach is to figuratively teach others how to fish! With ME™, teaching these skills only takes YOU a few more minutes. And it gives others the confidence to find their own oil solutions for almost any future need!
How YOU Can Use ME™ to Teach
ME™ shows how to apply oils. In the front of the Modern Essentials books (and app) is an introduction that teaches quickly and simply how to use and apply the oils.
ME™ identifies concerns and conditions. "My Usage Guide" is the powerhouse of Modern Essentials®! It's so easy to look up 100s of conditions and concerns, and to quickly find recommended oils, blends, recipes, and application instructions.
Give "Intro to ME™" with an oil. While any Modern Essentials® publication can be used to teach these skills, we recommend sharing the bite-sized "Introduction to Modern Essentials®" with every beginner and every sample of oil. "Intro to ME™" is simple to use, easy to carry, and inexpensive. It contains valuable know-how for using dōTERRA® essential oils that can last a lifetime!
As YOU teach these simple skills using ME™, those you teach will have increased confidence to use essential oils. They will seek you out again to learn more about dōTERRA® oils and blends to help solve new challenges that arise for themselves and their families.
