Selling Essential Oils: Can you Make Money?

Can you make money selling essential oils?

This answer will be explored in this post. I’ll also give you business building tips and discuss if selling essential oils will work for you.

I fell in love with aromatherapy and essential oils a few years ago.

After trying many brands over the years I finally came across doTerra and have been so happy with the results of using them that I went from user to business builder.

What are these MLM essential oil companies?

How can you make money with them?

There are numerous companies out there that choose the Multi Level Marketing (MLM) way to promote their business. Some people rely on ads to sell products, others rely on people promoting the company.

I’ve been asked to take part of many MLM companies over the years.

I’ve always turned them down.

Why? Because I just wasn’t in love with the product!

You cannot make money with a MLM company unless you’re in love with the product and the product WORKS.

So if you don’t love essential oils I will tell you right now that you’re not going to be able to make money selling essential oils!

This goes the the same for any MLM company.

doTERRA has a 65% retention rate, which is incredibly high for the network-marketing world.

That means nearly 7 out of every 10 people who have ever enrolled with doTERRA have stayed with the company.

People don’t stick with a company like that unless the products are real and they work.

What is Multi Level Marketing (MLM)?

Can you make money with a MLM company is a common question for anyone wishing to work from home. But many MLM companies get a VERY BAD rep. They have pushy people trying to sell products that are terrible or don’t work.

doTERRA is a legitimate network marketing opportunity that provides real products to consumers through a word-of-mouth marketing by Wellness Advocates.

 Why I chose to make money with essential oils

I fell in love with essential oils a couple of years ago and tried many different companies. I’ve been very happy with the results of using doTerra essential oils for a few years now.

I’ve fallen in love with using doTERTA essential oils

Having a doTERRA diffuser on in our home creates an amazing atmosphere depending on what mood I’m wishing to experience.

I’ve turned to aromatherapy on countless occasions for our family. Our family has been so grateful to the therapeutic benefits of using doTERRA over the years.

And can I be honest about something?

Making money from home has been a blessing!

I get to be with my kids, grow my family food and use and share a product that I absolutely love.

The team I’m a part of is THE BIG DIFFERENCE to how far you can take your essential oil business.

 Share not Sell!

I’m a firm believer that a product should be so amazing that it ‘sells’ itself. To make money selling essential oils all you have to do is use and try them yourself and then share the oils with others. This can be done in a variety of ways:

Host an Essential Oil Class

Learn the basics and essential oils 101 and you can teach a class in the comfort of your own home or someone else’s. It might mean breaking out of your comfort zone or you might love it! Never charge for a class, it’s always good to just talk and discuss different essential oil diffuser blends, offer samples, catalogues, refreshments so they can get to know the company.

Make & Take Parties

These are great and offer a hands on experience for people. As I mentioned above, once you start making your own home and body care products you’ll be delighted at how fun it is and how amazing your recipes can smell with essential oils. Think whipped body butters, lip balm, relaxing foot scrubs, there are so many wonderful recipes you can use and your guests get to take the items home with them. You might charge a small amount for the ingredient costs (except the essential oils themselves) or you might use it as a business expense.

The Online Website/Blog World

If you’re a bit of an introvert like myself (hello!) then the online world is a more comfortable place to grow your business. This takes a lot longer however to establish and grow your business and requires decent computer and graphic skills to excel in this busy world.

Word of Mouth with Friends & Family

Lastly the old fashioned way of spreading the love via word of mouth! This can often be the easiest and fastest way to spread the love of young living! Plus you get to talk about it with close friends and family and discuss which products you like and want to try out next.

Is this a “Get Rich Quick” thing?

Nope. In fact, expect to work hard–really hard. The difference between this and conventional employment? You get to be your own boss, there is no cap on your income potential, and you can take this business as far as you want it to go–no college degree required. I devote a lot of time to my business, but I can say without question, that it is the most rewarding and exhilarating “job” I’ve ever had.

I am Looking for People Who Are:

  • Highly passionate, decisive, and willing to work HARD
  • Ready to make a real change in their life and be their own boss
  • Want to attend online trainings and teach classes/workshops
  • Willing to start out with an enrollment kit (these start at $150) see more below.
  • Will to devote focused time each week to growing your team and learning about the oils


The great thing about becoming a Wellness Advocate is you have a few different options.

doTERRA is unlike most other companies out there because they don’t have any additional requirements for their wholesale essential oil members other than purchasing a membership or a starter kit. However, many choose to purchase monthly with doTERRA’s Loyalty Rewards Program because they earn free products.

There are usually 3 types of Wellness Advocates:

You can take this business as far as you want to!

I’m not just saying this, I’m personally learning from multiple women that HAVE taken their careers into their own hands and have made into the diamond levels.

They’ve created amazing business building resources so they YOU can unlock your highest potential.

Some Business Building Tips

  • It’s a good idea to always carry some oils on you or diffuse some essential oil blends when you have friends or family over. Often just the smell alone is enough to entice and ask questions.
  • Give essential oils and related products as gifts for special occasions and holidays is a great way for friends and family to try out the products.

  • Get some business cards made and always have them on hand if you meet someone new that might be interested.
  • Use the products to get familiar with them, the more you know, the more you can share.
  • Don’t make claims that are related to disease, health problems and issues. The FDA cracked down hard in the past couple of years of the many bloggers making false claims online. Being a part of a great team will help you know what you can talk about and what you can’t.
