Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
In this episode Chris Cook, a member of the doTERRA product marketing team, talks about the Amavi collection. He'll let you know the intention behind the creation of the Amavi blend, the beautiful oils that are part of the blend, as well as how he likes to use it in his daily life.
doTERRA: The name Amavi comes from the Latin saying, “Veni. Vidi. Amavi,” which translates to “I came. I saw. I loved.” The expression itself encapsulates the idea that life is a journey to be experienced. And that joy can be found in even the littlest of things.

Today, we’re excited to talk to Chris Cook, a member of the doTERRA product marketing team, all about the Amavi Collection. Chris, thank you so much for sitting down with us today to talk about this incredible collection.
Chris Cook: No problem. Happy to do it.
doTERRA: So my first question is what is a part of this Amavi Collection? What comes in the collection?
Chris: So our Father’s Day Amavi Collection comes with three really unique products. So we have, first and foremost, the Amavi Touch that we're all familiar with. So we’re bringing that back.
Second is an Amavi-infused Bath Bar. So unlike some previous years, we are doing a whole Bath Bar with the Amavi infused inside.
And then the third part is a dopp kit, so a toiletry bag. But the cool thing about this bag is it's 100 percent recycled PET from used water bottles.
Chris: So we’re excited to be bringing something environmentally conscious to our Father's Day lineup.
doTERRA: That sounds so amazing and having that, you know, recyclable bag that you're bringing back, good for the environment but great for everyone who gets to have one as well.
doTERRA: So my next question would be what was your thought behind the development of the Amavi blend? Where did this come from?
Chris: So the origins of the Amavi blend really were to have an opportunity for men to take part in an essential oil experience as well. I think that sometimes we feel like it's very much a woman-oriented, you know, experience.
But men are also welcome, and more than welcome to be included in using essential oils for many different reasons. And so, what we wanted to do was really create a blend that could really tie into men's usage. So it has a lot of really cool earthy, woody aromas a part of it that really create this wonderful experience for the men in your life.
doTERRA: Absolutely. And it is such a beautiful combination of those earthy, woody smells. It's just warm and wonderful. I love it, personally.
doTERRA: So why was it important for doTERRA to bring this collection that is more geared toward men?
Chris: Kind of like I was saying, having everybody included in essential oils is an amazing part of your personal life and, you know, even your business, is to be able to target everybody who needs natural health in their life. And this one specifically is helping men feel more grounded in their lives.
So you've got all of these wood blends and wood essential oils that bring this calm into your personal lifestyle. And having an opportunity to celebrate the men in our life is also a huge part of what we do here at doTERRA. We want everybody to feel loved and included, and this is a great way for us to do that with an essential oil.
doTERRA: So you've mentioned those incredible oils that are inside a couple times. Can you let us know exactly what those are?
Chris: Yeah. What I love about the Amavi blend is it features two wood oils that we don't always use all the time. So, Hinoki doesn't come out all the time, but we have Hinoki in our Amavi blend, and Buddha Wood, as well as Balsam Fir, Black Pepper, and Patchouli.
So when they all come together, they create this really fortifying blend. You know, it's our fortifying blend, and you really do feel confident whenever you have it on your body or you're just inhaling it for that aromatic effect. It really does kind of create this whole change in your attitude and person using this unique blend of oils.
doTERRA: And I love that you brought up those two oils that people don't really get to see very often. For anyone that was able to get the Hinoki when it was the product the month earlier this month, it is such an incredible smell. And to have it as part of this blend, I'm sure it is just adding, you know, sprinkles on top of the cake.
Chris: Oh, one hundred percent. It's such a unique smelling essential oil that I love that we get to feature it again this year.
doTERRA: So I think the Bath Bar is probably self-explanatory for people of how to use that. But how would you recommend using this Touch oil, the Amavi Touch.
Chris: So the Touch oil is something that I would recommend looking up different like touch points on the body, obviously. But for men, I would really recommend using it on your wrist. Kind of right there because it's really grounding place on the body. It can just be a really grounding and fortifying aroma. And so putting it on this part of your body, just kind of your wrist right through here, that is going to be constantly adding the aromatherapy perspective of that as well.
So that's the place that I would typically put it on my body. And if not, also behind the ear. Two of the best places for using that essential oil blend.
doTERRA: I love that. And because it is a Touch, it's so convenient. People can carry it around with them, have it with them when they're needing it. It's not something that you forget at home and then, “Oh no. This is what I needed today.” I wish I could have had it in my pocket.
doTERRA: It is just so convenient when it's in that Touch bottle.
Chris: Oh, exactly. Super portable. And I carry mine with me 98 percent of the time just because it's so simple, and I need that oil on a regular basis.
doTERRA: Well Chris, I love all of the information you were able to give us today and the tips for the application for that roller Touch with the Amavi. Thank you so much for joining.
Chris: Oh, thank you.
