So you want oils, but it can be hard to shell out $150 plus all at once. I know. I’ve been there! I didn’t start with a kit either, and although I will tell you know it’s totally my biggest regret, I understand. So I’m going to lay out a budget plan that gets you a wholesale membership account, and then gets you on the Loyalty Rewards Program doTERRA offers, which starts you out earning 10% of your purchases back in points, and eventually earns you 30% back in points! You’ll spread your “starter oils” over 3 months at around $50 per month, and you’ll be earning points back on both your order, plus all your shipping back in additional points. PLUS 25% off every purchase!

Quick disclaimer: if you CAN find a way to go all in and get the kit, just do it. It really is a better overall value, because the oils are 25% off plus you get the membership for free.


Okay, here’s the plan…



  • Membership Fee – $35
  • Pick one oil – Wild Orange Oil or Lemon Oil ($10.50 or $10, respectively)
  • Total cost for Month One (minus shipping) $45 or $45.50

This gets you started right away saving 25% off your purchases, plus you have a great oil to provide some solutions! These two oils are detoxing, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial, and they’re great added to your water, to cook with, and to make an awesome natural cleaner!

Countertop Cleaner:
Mix 10 drops citrus oil with 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water in a glass spray bottle. 

*Go back to the Essentials Page for how to place your first order! Follow the steps, but instead of picking a kit, pick the “Introductory Enrollment Packet” as your starter item.



  • Lavender Oil – $21
  • Peppermint Oil – $20.50
  • Lemon Oil or Wild Orange Oil (whichever you didn’t buy last month) – $10 and $10.50 respectively
  • Total cost for Month Two (minus shipping) – $51.50 or $52

Now you have sleep, energy, skin, and, and allergy issues covered! You’re getting more solutions into your home, and starting to earn points back this month! Next month, you’ll have 5 points plus your shipping points added to your account. My advice is let those babies build up so you can treat yo self at some point in the future.

Here are just some of the things I use Lavender and Peppermint oils to assist with: rashes, burns, bleeding, allergies, headaches, cooking, to flavor water…the list could go on and on!

Allergy Rollerball:
4 drops Peppermint oil, 4 drops Lavender Oil, 4 drops Lemon oil in a 10ml roller bottle. Fill with carrier oil – fractionated coconut oil, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, etc. Anything that won’t go rancid and won’t harden at cold temps. I roll on the back of the neck, the upper chest, and the temples. For sinus support, roll directly over the sinuses. (I don’t recommend this for young children that might rub into their eyes.)

*For this month, you’re setting up a new LRP template. You’ll only have to do this step once, because each month afterwards, you’ll just edit that existing template. The template needs to have 50pv or more to earn points, but anything over 1pv will maintain the existing points you’ve earned. If you have any questions, make sure to contact me and I’ll help ya out!



  • Melaleuca – $19
  • OnGuard – $32
  • Total cost for Month Three (minus shipping) – $51

These oils now have you covered for supporting your family’s immunity! Melaleuca is also great for skin issues and supporting the healing process with infections, and OnGuard is a total powerhouse oil.

Mold & Mildew Spray
5 drops Melaleuca oil, 5 drops Lemon oil, mix with 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water in a spray bottle. Attack the affected areas and let sit for 10 minutes before wiping off. 



  • DigestZen – $31
  • Balance – $20
  • Total cost for Bonus Month (minus shipping) – $51

DigestZen is a great digestion aid, and also amazing for nausea from illness, car sickness, and morning sickness. It can help to settle the stomach and move things along. Balance is a great oil for emotional support, as it is calming and grounding. I’ve heard great things about both of these oils for cranky kiddos!


By now, you know how this whole deal works. You’ll be adding points to your account every month, getting 25% off, and you can change your LRP every month to suit what you need. Keep up your LRP to increase your percentage of points earned back. If you need to order less one month, as long as you edit your LRP template to order 1pv or higher, you won’t lose any points you’ve earned. (I suggest Fractionated Coconut Oil, OnGuard toothpaste, or one of the citrus oils!)

Becoming a Wellness Advocate is always another great option if you’re on a tight budget. I’ll be the first to tell you that’s why I decided to make the leap and sell! My goal when I first started was to get the cost of my monthly LRP order covered in commission. (To earn commission, you need to have an LRP template always set to 100pv or higher, and place that order once a month.) If that’s something you’d be interested in, contact me directly and we will set up a business chat!
