Getting Started Wellness Advocate FAQs

Here are a few questions we often get when people are interested in getting started with dōTERRA. 


What makes a Wellness Advocate successful?

Being able to connect with people on many different levels, and genuinely showing them the life-altering power of using essential oils will get you halfway there. Being consistent in doing this through tough times and good, will get you all the way to Diamond. 


How much money can I make?

dōTERRA's superior products are sold exclusively through independent Builders who, working from wherever you please, shares, educates, and sells dōTERRA product, and for which you receive a sales commission.

The amount of money you earn from dōTERRA really boils down to how much work you choose to put into your business. 

Not everyone wants to make this a full-time thing, and I completely understand that. There are members of Team Pure Life (massage therapists, wellness coaches, chiropractors) that sell dōTERRA because it compliments their existing business beautifully, and since they are recommending the products anyway, they have chosen to also have the benefit of earning an additional income from dōTERRA. 

If you choose to dedicate more hours to your business, you will definitely reap the benefits. For the last two years, I've put full-time hours into building my essential oil business, and I recently reached Diamond. 


What are the startup costs?

It costs $42 CAD dollars to sign up (or that fee is waived if purchase an enrollment kit). Once you've signed up, in order to receive commission of your sales, you will need to place an order around $150 per month (100 pv) to receive commission. 

If you don't place an order of 100 PV (roughly $150) for one month, you will continue to receive wholesale pricing with your membership, but you won't receive that month's commission.

Should I purchase an enrollment kit?

If you're committed to building a business with dōTERRA, an enrollment kit is an excellent way to kick-start your business by having product on hand to be able to use and give out samples. You can see the full list of enrollment kits here >>
