Essential oils by doTERRA can be purchased through the brand’s website or one of its Wellness Advocates. You may also be able to find doTERRA essential oils on Amazon or eBay. For details on where to buy doTERRA oils online and in-person, see below.
Where to Buy doTERRA Oils
DoTERRA is an essential oil brand. In addition to essential oils, doTERRA also offers supplements, weight management products, and items for skin care, hair care, and body care. Products by doTERRA are not typically sold in stores. It is a multi-level marketing company (often referred to as a “home party business”), so you can purchase doTERRA oils directly from the brand or one of its Wellness Advocates. You can also find some doTERRA oils and products on Amazon and eBay. Below, we have details on where to buy doTERRA oils, plus information on a few less-expensive alternatives.
Buying from doTERRA
Essential oils can be purchased on doTERRA’s website. There are a few different pricing levels available. If you want to purchase single bottles with no strings attached, you’ll pay the full retail price. Essential oils range in price depending on the type. For example, doTERRA’s Lavender Touch retails for about $20, and Rose Touch retails for $100. If you enjoy doTERRA products and see yourself making future purchases, you might want to consider a doTERRA membership, which allows you to buy oils and other products at wholesale prices (about 25% off retail). A doTERRA membership requires a $35 enrollment fee and an annual $25 membership fee. A 15mL essential oil is included with your membership renewal fee.
If you want to start selling doTERRA, you can upgrade your membership to become a Wellness Advocate. There is no fee to upgrade from member to Wellness Advocate, said doTERRA customer service representatives reached via live chat. (If you’re not already a doTERRA member, you can go straight to Wellness Advocate by paying the same $35 enrollment fee and $25 annual membership fee.) However, you should be prepared to spend hundreds — or even thousands — of dollars on oils, diffusers, samples, and kits to have on hand for home parties and events. Keep in mind, earnings are largely based on how many people you get to sign up to sell under you — not necessarily how many products you sell.
Buying from a Wellness Advocate
If you don’t personally know a doTERRA Wellness Advocate to purchase from, you can fill out a form on doTERRA’s website to have a local Wellness Advocate contact you.
Alternately, you may be able to find doTERRA oils for sale in small businesses like spas, salons, or yoga studios. Sometimes, small business owners will partner with or become a doTERRA Wellness Advocate to sell the oils and products in-store.
A few businesses that link to doTERRA oils on their websites include Earth Yoga NYC and Sacred Sounds Yoga also in New York City. When you click on the link to browse or buy doTERRA oils, you’ll be directed to doTERRA’s website, where you’ll shop under that particular Wellness Advocate’s ID so he or she earns credit from the sale.
Other Places Where You Can Buy doTERRA Oils
We were able to find some doTERRA oils and products on Amazon and eBay. For the most part, the prices are close to or the same as the retail prices on doTERRA’s website. Be aware that doTERRA does not allow Wellness Advocates to sell its products on eBay, Amazon, or other online marketplaces without written authorization from the company; some of the products available on these sites may be illegitimate or repackaged.
One advantage to buying doTERRA oils through Amazon or eBay — if you can find legitimate products — is reduced or free shipping. The lowest available shipping rate on doTERRA’s website is $3.99 for three to six business days. But, if you have an Amazon Prime membership, you may be able to get free two-day shipping on doTERRA oils and products. Sellers on eBay set their own shipping charges, so shipping rates vary.
Cheaper Alternatives to doTERRA Oils
If you’re looking for cheaper alternatives to doTERRA essential oils, take a look at Edens Garden and Plant Therapy. Both brands offer essential oils and similar products to doTERRA — typically at a cheaper price point.
