You know when you buy personal care products from Target/Wal-Mart/Costco, and you get a big check in the mail from them for shopping there and referring friends to shop there too? Oh wait...you probably don't know about that because it doesn't happen!!

That brings me to The Prosperity Project.

When you join this project, you can do exactly what I mentioned above. You can purchase your personal care products through dōTERRA every month - things like shampoo, conditioner, skincare, laundry detergent, hand soap, toothpaste, body butter/lotion, concentrated all purpose cleaner, etc. etc., and refer 3-5 of your friends to also shop for their items through dōTERRA to make money.

You may be thinking - Whaaaaat? I can buy things I already buy, tell 3-5 friends and actually add to my household income instead of taking money away from it? 

And I'm saying - YES, You can!!! 

Plus -

There are some really fantastic reasons for why you would opt to buy your items from dōTERRA over other companies:

1. dōTERRA's products are non-toxic. There are many products on the market which contain unsafe chemicals that can lead to health concerns. Read this article on PubMed about chemical exposures & the ugly side of beauty products.

Have you paid attention to what's in your personal care products? If you looked at the list of ingredients on the labels of most shampoos, conditioners, skincare products, lotions, laundry detergents, etc., and googled each ingredient to find out what it is - you would be shocked. In many mainstream company's product's you'll find item after item that is toxic and unsafe. Meaning that when you apply these products to your skin, hair, use them to wash your clothes with, etc., you're body is absorbing those chemicals which could lead to a variety of problems such as hormone disruption, endocrine disorders, reproductive issues, etc. which will, in turn, lead to all sorts of health problems and dis-eases.

You don't have to continue using toxic products! dōTERRA has so many items that are safe for you and your family. Here's dōTERRA's promise when it comes to the safety of their products: 

dōTERRA will never use artificial colors, Diethanolamine (DEA), formaldehyde donors, Parabens, Pthalates, Propoylene glycol, Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), Sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS), Toluene, or Triethanolamine (TEA).

2. dōTERRA's Co-Impact Sourcing. Large, corporate companies can sometimes have a bad reputation when it comes to how they handle the sourcing/acquiring of their products. dōTERRA didn't want to fit into that mold. They went the complete opposite direction of the corruption and waste that, unfortunately, can come about when greed takes over. The founders of dōTERRA go above and beyond to ensure that their practices are ethical and fair for everyone involved: 

This comes directly from the dōTERRA website: 

"In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils doTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production.

With over 100 essential oils in its product line, doTERRA sources its oils from over 40 countries —more than half of which could be considered developing countries. To ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, doTERRA has introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing.

Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity."

3. dōTERRA's Healing Hands Foundation: There are a lot of bad things and suffering that go on in the world today. Don't you want a way that you can help combat these things and bring relief to the people who need it most? When you buy from dōTERRA make a donation (your donation doesn't have to be a ton! Just $1 helps!) with every purchase you make, or purchase products where the proceeds all go towards the HHF, you're adding to a cause that is filled with light and purpose. The Healing Hands Foundation is the epitome of love. We don't know how else to say it better.

Again, directly from the dōTERRA website:

The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® brings healing and hope to the world by providing global communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. 

Through projects addressing the needs of microcredit lending; access to healthcare, education, sanitation and clean water; and fighting child sex-trafficking, individuals are empowered and lives are changed. Join us in these efforts. 

The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. dōTERRA International provides for all overhead and administrative costs of the foundation, ensuring that 100 percent of all donations go directly to those receiving aid.

4. Last but not least. I'll say it again - You can make money by purchasing your products from dōTERRA instead of the stores you normally buy from and inviting 3-5 people to do the same. 

We think that's a pretty good reason to buy from dōTERRA. ;)
