You might not know this about me, but I have Multiple Sclerosis!  Diagnosed in 2014.  Since then, my life's drastically been changing - for the better! MS was the motivation I needed to become aware of how to take better care of myself.  Nobody wants to have an illness, right?  Yet, everywhere, people are dealing with ailments - I used to have diabetes too, but with the very short-term help of pharmaceuticals, then prayer, diet & exercise, I turned it around! Like diabetes, MS occurs when the immune becomes hyperactive, overreacting to certain cells. My solution? Take charge of my health, using prayerful meditation, exercise, music, clean/organic nutrition, laughter & DoTERRA essential oils.  Essential oils are a natural oil, typically obtained by distillation and have the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted. My doctors recommend chemotherapy, usually administered alongside cancer patients (not the place I want to be for healing) So I'm adding old remedies,maybe like the ones my great grandmother Cora Jane Barnes used to gather from the earth, into my life as an alternative to the pharmaceutical drug protocol for ms .  If' you'd like to learn more about what I'm doing. or how I use essential oils instead of chemicals, CLICK HERE.  Please! Tell me your story.  I'll do my best to help you find your answers while sharing how I live life as a Teaching & Performance Artist.  We're here together each on a unique journey on the same path.  Follow MINE on Patreon

DoTERRA History

In the spring of 2008, a group on health-care and business professionals who shared profound personal experiences with the life-enhancing benefits of essential oils came together with a common vision of bringing a new standard of therapeutic-grade essential oils to the world.  They wanted something different that would appeal to all people- from those who knew nothing of essential oils to those who were considered experts in the field.

They conclude that, with hard work, commitment, and the help of others with similar passion and vision, they could and would create a new paradigm for essential oils.  With that conviction, they organized a company and named it DoTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of  the Earth.”  The first offering of doTerra essential oils- 25 single oils and 10 oil blends- was introduced for sale on April 25, 2008, to the acclaim of essential oil experts and product enthusiasts who immediately recognized the superior quality of doTerra therapeutic-grade essential oils.

In addition to the ongoing development of new essential oils and proprietary essential oil blends, DoTERRA product offerings include nutritional, spa, and healthy living products based on essential oil technologies and a comprehensive wellness philosophy.
