Today, we're excited to talk to Patsy Vega about how you can discover which essential oils will work best for you. Patsy, thank you so much for sitting down with us today.

Patsy Vega: Thank you very much for having me. I'm very excited, and it's an honor for me to be here today!

doTERRA: Now, my first question for you is just to get a little bit of background. What was your journey to essential oils?

Patsy: OK, I will start with my story. I am originally from Mexico City. I'm living now in the USA. But before this, we were living in Colombia, because of my husband's work. I have always looked for natural support. But while living in Colombia, I started feeling uncomfortable with my back. And with the help of physical therapy and these doTERRA amazing oils, I helped myself to feel better. I helped myself in having a comfortable life. And very importantly, I started changing my habits.

After that experience, I started using my oils on a daily basis, not only on myself, but also on my kids, my husband. And we also started experiencing excellent results. We use them at home to support our immune system, to create calming environments at home, and in general to feel our best version.

So one thing that I like the most about doTERRA essential oils is that they are safe for every person in my family. And they also have become part of our daily use and all our routines.

doTERRA: Now, when you were first learning to use oils, how did you use them?

Patsy: Well, one thing that I love the most is the community and support that I have received since the beginning. I'm a person who needs accountability. And having this extra support in our community could give me the perspective I needed in how, when, and what to use whenever I need it. It's a great gift to have a community. This resource has also helped me in my business. So very easily and very soon, I could make the changes I needed and achieve the lifestyle that I was looking for.

doTERRA: I love that about community, I think it is so important. I know a lot of people, when they first get introduced to essential oils or introduced to the doTERRA, they might feel kind of overwhelmed about how many different oils there are and how many different things they can do with them. What do you recommend for people that feel overwhelmed?

Patsy: Well, I would give that word a twist and say that having choices is a need. We are all different, and in that diversity, we have options with doTERRA. With doTERRA oils, we are in a position to choose from oils or products, one over another, to help us feel satisfied. I mean, you can choose to prepare your own rollers or your own products or maybe get the Touch blends or the Touch rollers that are already prepared for you. You can DIY your natural shampoos or your natural mouthwash, or you can get the doTERRA shampoo or the mouthwash or the deodorant, etc. So we all understand that we are unique, and in that uniqueness, our bodies respond differently. So doTERRA gives us the option to find what best suits us and have the possibility to adopt wellness solutions. So wrapping it up, I give you this question: Is it even possible to have too much of a good thing?

doTERRA: I think that's an excellent point. Patsy, what do you recommend to people who are wanting to learn more about what oils they can use?

Patsy: doTERRA has tons of online resources available for us. They are free, and they're also very easy to read. doTERRA provides us with continuous educational videos, for example; e-books, which we can download; podcasts such as this one; workbooks. The web page is excellent. It also has scientific information. I mean, if you are more into science and chemistry, it gives you all the scientific literature that you need. You can also find basic information on the oils. And one thing that I've been enjoying most is all the trainings we can have. Even if you are only a consumer, if you're sharing oils, doTERRA provides you with online training, for example, in how to become an oil specialist. That is one of my favorite trainings. Also, I'm sure that the person who enrolls you has support and an accountable community, which I've been talking about, from which you will have solutions, such as gatherings. You can have Wellness Consults also with that community. You can also have specialty classes or even support in chat groups and social media.

doTERRA: I think those are all amazing resources, I'm so glad that you pointed all of those out. Now, before we end today, I want to know what are your favorite oils to recommend to people that are just starting their journey with essential oils?

Patsy: A very good way to start is having a Wellness Consult where you and a consultant will personalize how to start by identifying your health priorities and will also help you through a doTERRA lifestyle. Then you will choose a kit that addresses your needs and provides you the solutions you're looking for. I would say choose a wellness consultant with whom you feel connected and more comfortable with. And I'm sure he or she will provide you with the support and the community that will guide you through your journey. Together, you will find what's best for you, or even better, what allows you to share with your loved ones and even your own community to create a lifestyle.

doTERRA: And can you tell us a little bit about what your favorite essential oils have been in your life?

Patsy: Well, if I would choose one, I would go with Adaptiv™. The combination of the oils in this blend—it's Wild Orange, Lavender, Copaiba, Spearmint, Rosemary, Neroli. And I choose this one because nowadays tension and uncertainty is what we live. And it does not matter your age, condition, or whatever your activity is, this blend helps you to be adaptive and to be comfortable in any situation. I have found in Adaptiv a daily support. I even use it as my perfume because it smells amazing. I can love the moment I leave. And honestly, it's a game changer. doTERRA: Well, Patsy, thank you so much for sharing your insight into this topic with us. It has been wonderful to talk to you today.

Patsy: It was wonderful for me, too! Thank you very much again for this experience.
