Becoming a Wellness Advocate

What should I know about joining doTERRA?

What should I know about doTERRA’s business model?

doTERRA is a product-driven company supported by a direct sales model. The majority of new doTERRA U.S. customers—approximately 92%—are Wholesale and Retail customers who purchase products for personal use. This creates an exceptionally stable customer base for those who choose to build a doTERRA business. Those who wish to become a doTERRA distributor, known as a Wellness Advocate, can participate in three ways:

  • Buy doTERRA products at a discount for their own or household use
  • Sell doTERRA products to make a retail profit
  • Share with and educate others who want to consume or sell doTERRA products

Most U.S. Wellness Advocates join only to receive a discount on doTERRA® products and do not participate in the business. In 2023, as a result, about 54% of U.S. Wellness Advocates did not receive commissions from doTERRA.

How do I become a Wellness Advocate?

There are two ways to become a doTERRA Wellness Advocate:

  1. Connect with an existing Wellness Advocate who can teach you about doTERRA products and get you set up.
  2. If you don’t know any doTERRA Wellness Advocates, you can visit and follow the link to become a Wellness Advocate.

What should I know about this business opportunity?

Like all businesspeople, some doTERRA Wellness Advocates succeed, while others do not. There are no guarantees that you will earn money. Building a successful doTERRA business takes hard work, skill, and time. Most Wellness Advocates start their doTERRA business by working part-time and selling to people in their network. As a Wellness Advocate, you will never be required to make purchases, other than the initial signup fee of $35.00*.

*Sign-up fee may be waived with periodic promotions.

How can I earn money?

As a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, you can earn money by selling doTERRA products that you buy at a discount. Your discount averages 25% of suggested retail prices. You can also earn money by sharing with and educating others who want to consume or sell doTERRA products. While you cannot earn money by only recruiting or sponsoring someone, you can earn money from the sales of those customers, and as such education on product benefits and usage is vital.
