No, I'm not talking about an essential oil that can stop bleeding although Helichrysum has been dubbed "stitches in a bottle". Enter cue when my one year old fell and required stitches just last month! Thankfully, Helichrysum oil did the trick and we were able to get things under control until I could get her to the ER so a Pediatric doctor could close it up properly and she wouldn't get a nasty scar on her face. And no, I'm not talking about an oil that prevents heart attacks although HERE is an incredible story about a man that made a remarkable recoverable after a massive heart attack thanks to adding essential oils to his care while in the ICU.
What I am talking about is essential oils with a cause...a cause that is saving lives around the world. I don't know where you buy your essential oils from, but what if your purchase funded programs to rescue children from sex trafficking or provided clean water to an entire village or reduced poverty and created jobs?
Let me introduce you to dōTERRA® Essential Oils. Did you know dōTERRA® has partnered with multiple organizations to help abolish sex trafficking, support orphan care, reduce poverty cycles, provide clean water and mobile health clinics to impoverished countries, fund earthquake and hurricane relief, and the list goes on and on! This is all made possible due to dōTERRA®'s Co-Impact Sourcing and Healing Hands Foundations. dōTERRA® seeks to make a positive difference and build strong relationship with the communities where their essential oils are being sourced. They look beyond just themselves.
When you buy a bottle of dōTERRA® essential oils not only are you improving the health of your family, but you are also contributing to helping those in need all around the world!
Every bottle of dōTERRA® Essential Oil has a story and a cause. Here are a few of my favorites...
dōTERRA's® Healing Hands Foundation has officially partnered with Operation Underground Railroad (OUR Rescue) which is dedicated to rescuing children around the world from sex trafficking and slavery. In 2016 alone, dōTERRA® donated $500,000 to the organization via Hope Essential Oil Blend. Watch the following 2-min video to see Operation Underground Railroad in action.
Cardamom Essential Oil or Breathe Respiratory Blend
The Guatemala Project funded the construction of the Sika’abe Training Center. This center works to break the cycle of poverty by teaching skills such as construction, agriculture, and hospitality in courses that are government certified.
Vetiver Essential Oil or Serenity Restful Blend
The Haiti Project began drilling for water in Haiti and installing solar-powered pumps. Not only do these communities now have access to clean water, but the children are able to attend school instead of making the long walk to collect water every day.
Frankincense Essential Oil
The Somaliland Project has assisted in the education efforts for clan children in Africa by donating towards a school construction for boys and girls. This project is providing education opportunities for more than 220 youth in 16 villages.
Why Co-Impact Sourcing?
Two-thirds of the countries dōTERRA® is working with are developing countries. As a result, they also have an opportunity to make a difference in these countries through job creation, helping form organizations and cooperatives through co-impact sourcing and paying fair wages. This helps elevate entire communities out of poverty.
What if every time you bought a bottle of essential oil, you were actually buying the best quality essential oils and lifting entire communities?
That is one of the benefits of dōTERRA® sourcing essential oils in over 40 countries. The short 6-min video below shows the co-impact sourcing difference.
LOVE that the dōTERRA® culture is to be compassionate and caring for all nations around the world! Which is your favorite essential oil humanitarian project?
