I would never, ever sell homeopathy or naturopathy products as an unqualified person, so why are unqualified people selling essential oils as if they are aromatherapists?  

I’ve watched the DoTerra, Young Living essential oil multi-level marketing ‘push’ for a few years and now I feel I have to push back. I was invited to a DoTerra workshop run by a beautiful, but unqualified, woman in Brunswick Heads last year.

When one is really trained and has practised for years in the correct use of essential oils, as I am, the profound respect for the power of the oils is immense. Peace. Respect. Understanding.
