Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Beyond the hype of the holiday season lies a very real need to make a difference in the world. Henry Ford once said, “The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.” We see examples of such giving often in doTERRA®, and we are proud that so many Wellness Advocates want to make a difference in their communities. Sharing essential oils is a large part of that picture, but there are also many other good deeds being carried out by inspired Wellness Advocates.
During this time of the year, we are also reminded of the many good things we have in our lives, and that others are not as fortunate. So, how do we give back? We have compiled a short list of ideas that we hope will inspire you:
Start by thinking about the needs of your family—both immediate and extended. Serving outside of your home is always a great idea, but the family is often overlooked. For example, you could help your elderly uncle in his yard, or a niece or nephew with homework.
Find ways to volunteer in your community. You will often find opportunities simply by searching online.
Donate to charity. Every time you buy Rose Lotion, you are contributing to the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™.
Use the skills you have already. Are you a contractor or handyman? Offer to help neighbours with projects around their homes. Charitable organizations are also always looking for writers and designers to help with their website or newsletters.
If you are a member of any religious organization, ask your religious leader for ways you can help.
