How to Get the Best Prices During dōTERRA's BOGO Week

I don't know many people that don't appreciate a good deal when they see one. 

 

dōTERRA does this amazing thing like three times a year that continues to blow our minds.

 

BOGO's (you know, those Buy One, Get One Deals?) 

Even Taylor Swift can't believe it...  

Even Taylor Swift can't believe it...  

Wanna know how it works? Then read on...

The DL (downlow)

So, for an entire week, dōTERRA will reveal ONE surprise BOGO deal of the day. It's a surprise because...surprises are FUN!

YOU, yes you, have just 24 HRS. to buy up to 5 sets of this deal. Just ONE full day and the deal is gone into forever past. (*sigh)

So...you don't wanna wait. If you see the deal, love the deal, gotta have the deal, you need to just go ahead and get the deal before your kid comes up to you and asks for that fifth Popsicle and derails your whole BOGO train.

 How To Order 

 

So, you rush off, grab that Popsicle and pray it keeps Popsicle Polly occupied for just five minutes so you can order today's deal. 

 

But, where to start?... 

 

Here's a good place. In fact, it's the BEST place to begin. And here's what you do once you click on that "highlighted place" word in the first sentence of this paragraph.

Click the 3-line thing in the top right hand corner of your screen.

That should reveal a hidden menu. (dōTERRA is FULL of surprises, aren't they?)

If you like paying full price for things, just click "Shop" to pay retail! Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy.

But, if you're like most people we know, you want the cheapest price possible. So, if you're one of those, click JOIN & SAVE.

Wait. JOIN? Now, wait. Just calm down a second. It's not some "Jelly of the Month" Club, and you aren't going to sign your life away. Nope.

It's just like becoming an Amazon Prime member or a Costco Member. Members get perks, but no one's gonna MAKE you use your membership.  

 

Its really and truly no strings attached. 

(And we always give our new Ōily family members extra product just for deciding to Join & Save)

 How Do I Get Today's Deal? 

 

 

Easy.  

 

Simply add the BOGO item to your cart and the FREE item will automatically be added. That's right, you don't have to add the FREE item at all. It just magically appears, in all it's FREE glory, in your personal shopping cart.  

 

And the best part is: it'll ship super quickly to your home. No meeting up with your friends at a gas station, after swim practice, to get your items. Just like Pizza Hut, dōTERRA delivers straight to your home.

 

 How Much Can I Order? 

 

Some deals are just too good to buy just one set. dōTERRA understands this and that's why they allow up to 5 sets ordered per account.

 

So, if you wanna really beef up that Ōily stash of yours, this is your week. 

 

 One More Thing... 

Head on over to our pretty sweet BOGO page on Facebook and give us a 👍🏼. Then, everytime you order a BOGO set, comment on that day's deal photo. Cause we're giving away over $160 worth of FREE oils. As if this week wasn't generous enough?!

So, what are you waiting for??!!  

 

These oil deals are too cool to hang out in this summer heat!  

Our Favorite (All Natural/Deet Free) Bug Repellent.

 

The dangers of traditional bug repellent sprays and lotions, are now, widely known. 

 

Mothers everywhere have to read labels on countless bottles and lotions, searching for the dreaded Deet ingredient. 

 

You may have even spent more money than you intended on high dollar bug repellent solutions for your child's sensitive skin.  

 

I've been there.  

 

We used to live in a very high traffic suburban neighborhood. Very few trees. Very few opportunities for bugs as most everyone had their yards sprayed yearly with chemicals. 

The worst the summertime used to offer us was the occasional swarm of mosquitos that loved to nest on top of the kids sandbox lid after it rained.

 

Moving out to the deep woods was a game changer.  

 

Nature here is untouched and the amount of creepy crawlies and critters we encounter are vast. In fact, sometimes I feel like I live at the nature center.  

 

And the ticks. 

 

Oh, the ticks!! 

 

It's awful. Anyone else feel me?!  

 

Soon on after we moved, I had had it.  

 

Kids would come inside, covered in little red bumps everywhere. I'd pull a tick off one of them every other day. And the spiders and ants and earwigs and spider crickets and on and on and on never left us alone.

 

My husband would spray them down with Deep Woods Spray, but that stuff was FILLED to the brim with harmful pesticides and chemicals. And it was NOT Deet free by any stretch.  

 

At this point in my life, I was changing our tune about using products with chemicals. I really had a strong desire to search for more natural solutions. 

 

I discovered this amazing natural solution two years ago after exhausting all other options.  

 

This bottle was just $9 and had 250 applications. 

 

For a family our size, I was excited to see something that could be stretched so far. 

 

Introducing, Terrashield. 

IMG_2859.PNG

 

TerraShield is my family’s favorite blend for the summer.

We spend a lot of time outside (A LOT) and this is the magic that wards off any insects that want to join our summer festivities.

This oil is safe for everyone in your family and can even help your garden flourish by giving it a protective barrier.

Terrashield comes in two different options: the Oil Blend bottle (250 drops/15mL) and the ready made spray (30 mL).

TerraShield has recently been updated to include Tamanu oil which not only provided extra benefits for your use but is positively impacting families in Madagascar through dōTERRA’s Cō-Impact Sourcing.

This blend can be diffused or applied topically using the TerraShield Spray to provide a defense against the annoyances of outdoor activities.

Essential Oils for Baby

IMG_2152.JPG

FACT: MOST baby products on the market today, are made with synthetic fragrances and fillers that are dangerous to baby's lungs, skin, brain, and eyes.  

 

FACT: The ingredient, Talc, is found in MOST baby powders and is a known lung irritant. 

 

FACT: Johnson & Johnson brand has been under fire the past several years for the harm their products have caused to countless hundreds and thousands of babies over the years.  And they're not the only company caught in the act of poisoning our children. 

 

FACT: There is a safer, better, and more effective alternative to OTC baby products for a fraction of the cost. 

 

***Most research found online about babies and essential oils are assuming that you will be using an oil that has synthetic additives and ingredients. In these cases, do heed these warnings if using an essential oil brand that does not offer 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG)* Essential Oils. If using CPTG essential oils, you can be sure to treat your family with confidence knowing that these oils are never tampered with and offered to you in their purest form with the best quality.

Some things to keep in mind:  

Babies and very young children should not be given oils internally. Although most of doTERRA's essential oils are tested safe for internal consumption, it is recommended that parents refrain from giving their children oils internally. 

Always dilute essential oils when using with children. 

Here is a guide to help you with that:
