Hi - I'm Jamie Brodersen, otherwise known as Essential Mama. Most people who visit my site want to know one of these things:
1. What are essential oils?
2. Where to buy dōTERRA essential oils
3. How can I get my dōTERRA products FREE?
4. How do I build dōTERRA into a work-at-home job & passion?
You too? If so, you're in the right place! Whether you just want to buy essential oils, make money selling dōTERRA or want to learn everything you can about essential oils, you have found the right place.
I started using dōTERRA essential oils in July of 2012, and I began my dōTERRA business in March 2013 after they supported our family in SO many ways - acute health issues, chronic conditions, removing toxic cleaners from our home, replacing toxic beauty supplies AND creating a financial and life freedom we never knew possible. I didn't know I could make money with essential oils - and now I'm a Platinum Leader in dōTERRA! I love sharing my secrets and all that I've learned! Connect with me to become an Essential Mama too. ;)
What does it mean to be an Essential Mama?
Being an Essential Mama means sticking to the essentials, focusing on what matters, and having the life we want - and deserve. At the core of things, I think we all want the same things don't we? We want as much time as possible with our family, to provide the best future possible for our kids, and to leave this world better than we found it. Does this resonate with you?
You may be thinking "this is too good to be. This is a doTERRA scam." Honestly, if we weren't living proof - I'd probably think the same thing. For us, and countless others around the world, doTERRA has been not only an amazing blessing to our health, wellness, emotional well-being, but also an unexpected financial miracle.
My husband is Casey - and we are just a simple Midwest family, living in Davenport, Iowa (across the river from Moline, Illinois in the Quad Cities). We have two boys ages 2 and 4. For us, as with so many parents, our lives changed when we saw that first little blue line on the pregnancy test confirming we were pregnant. In that very moment, we knew that we wanted to give that baby its very best possible chance in the world. With all of the craziness today, we strongly felt that meant having one of us stay home with the baby. So with our first son, I was home with him and working as a freelance designer and quite honestly I was stressed OUT! Even though I was home, and I was my own boss, I was still required to be on corporate calls or in corporate meetings where babies just were not allowed. So that forced us to juggle baby-care along with everything else in life. Quite honestly, when it came down to it - I was actually not able to spend that much time with my new baby, even though I was "work from home." I was working 60 hours or more each week - and remember, I couldn't have a crying baby with me. We ended up hiring a nanny to come to our home a few days each week at first, and then eventually that time grew to five days each week! I was not seeing my child as much as I had intended, nor was it the quality of time that I wanted when I actually DID get to see him, because I was so stressed and frazzled.
So when our second son came along we felt something had to change - but we didn't know how to make that change happen. We had a strong desire for our boys to have nurturing from us and to be with us as much as possible. That was just NOT going to happen with our current situation. What we didn't realize was that the solution for us, was right in front of us.
During my pregnancy with our second child, we were introduced to the amazing and profound healing benefits of dōTERRA essential oils. My friend introduced me to them because of the swelling I had while I was pregnant. When the oils helped with my swelling we began to use them in other areas of our lives to help with so many things -- and you can learn more about our experiences and the journey we've been on by watching my video Introduction to Essential Oils.
We found dōTERRA helped us find natural health solutions to every day concerns we faced like fatigue, respiratory issues, skin irritations - pretty much anything we faced, big or small. After we found such success in our natural health solutions, we then replaced all of our toxic (and expensive) cleaners with just two essential oils (Lemon & Melaleuca), the On Guard Cleaner Concentrate, baking soda and vinegar. This not only made our home more healthy, but we knocked about $500 out of our annual cleaning budget! So then we moved into the area of personal hygiene and we replaced all of our facial cleaners, hair products, hand sanitizers, body lotions and more. Thanks to dōTERRA's Loyalty Rewards Program which includes free shipping rewards, we save hundreds of dollars every year, and the best part is that it is all shipped right to our door! During this journey of discovery, we began sharing the oils and wellness products with everyone we knew. As we did this, we grew a business. Actually, a very successful business.
We now have financial freedom & time freedom that we never imagined - and we are actually dreaming again about our future. I am able to work from home, be with my kids as much as I want and create true residual income and financial freedom - just for sharing my passion for helping others and introducing these amazing oils and what they can do. I can't stand it when someone tells me that I'm "selling doTERRA,".. I usually correct them and say "actually, I'm changing lives with doTERRA." It's such a blessing to serve others in this way, while creating a better future for ourselves too.
