Origin: a Latin derivative

When Amy Widmer was first introduced to doTERRA, all she needed to do was hold the bottle in her hand to know she loved the product. She says, “Even before I inhaled the oils, I could sense power through my hands. I was sensitive to energy and vibrations due to the energy work I did. Then, I started smelling every single one and asking what they could assist with—and I was hooked.” It took her six months to feel like she could save up enough to enroll, because of the “lack mentality” she had. But, once she did, she knew that she wanted to share doTERRA with the world. “I somehow inherently knew that this was a vehicle that could transform my life.”
It was another year before her husband, Charlie, decided to join her. He gradually became more interested in the oils, and then attended convention with her. He says, “I went because I was interested in doing something other than my current business. I learned more about the business side there and saw how the comp plan worked, and I knew that it was something that I could do.”
Amy had already built the business to Elite on her own, and Charlie saw that they needed to get to Platinum for him to wean himself away from his other business. Once he was able to work doTERRA full time, they flew up to Diamond. Amy was excited to be Diamond to be able to expand her reach. She says, “I wanted the opportunity to help so many more people than I was. I wanted a bigger platform to share my message and my life purpose. I felt like Diamond was a vehicle to create that in a big way.”
When she was a single mom with five kids, Amy couldn’t pay her rent by herself and was on public assistance.
“We’re now able to help our children in ways we never could. We can enrich and expand their lives, and that motivates me to keep going forward.” –Amy
