This direct sales multi-level marketing company has been turning heads all over the internet. So we thought we should do a review on this program and let you know what it is all about and see if it is for real or not.

There are many different MLM companies out there and quite a few of them have bad reputations and knowing that going into this review we must say we were surprised at what we found.

Now, watch this video:

First, let’s take a look at who they are and where they come from.

Overview – Who they are

Let’s take a synthetic view of the company here:

Company: Doterra Essential oils Multi-level marketing Company

Founders: Dr. David K Hill, Robert Young, David Serling, Corey B. Lindley, Mark A. Wolfert, and Gregory P. Cook

Location: based out of Pleasent Grove, Utah Distribute worldwide.

Products: Essential oils and related products

Cost: Starting at $35.00 with an average start-up cost of around $200.00

Where they came from

This company was founded by Dr. David K Hill, Robert Young, David Serling, Corey B. Lindley, Mark A. Wolfert, and Gregory P. Cook in 2008.

This happened when the above named company left another multi-level marketing company called Young Living and started their own program.

The name Doterra they took means “gift of the earth” in Latin.

This startup created many problems from the beginning. Their former company presented them with a lawsuit claiming many things that were later all dismissed. The suit was also dismissed, thus clearing the way to Doterra becoming worldwide. Today it boasts over 100 counties filled with 3 million wellness advocates.

This is a huge organization that even boasts ownership of the Doterra Healing Hands Foundation that works worldwide with all kinds of humanitarian projects.

Their Products

This company has over 100 different products they market with the bulk being essential oils.

These oils are all-natural and plant-based and come in a variety of blends and individual oils. They are for cleaning, to be used as supplements for the body, personal care and healthy living, and many more uses.

The company has a huge amount of products available and their product list consists of multiple pages.

The wholesale prices and the retail prices are all listed on their product lists along with a points value for their rewards program that is part of their package.

In fact, there are so many that it would be impossible to list them all here so it is best to go to their website and take a look at what they offer.

Their Program

This program has been named the fastest-growing MLM program in the world and boasts sales of over one billion last year alone.

They claim to be the highest earners in the business. This is because of the advanced training they provide to their affiliates and the use of experienced affiliates as personal mentors.

You can earn money by commissions both upfront and residual. They supply an online lead generation program and offer a 25 percent discount on all products to their affiliates and a 25 percent discount on online shopping.

They report a 79 to 85 percent rate of retention of all their customers. Besides, reviews all seem to point to them being one of the best MLM programs available today.

You can join for $35.00 and this will enable you to buy the products at wholesale prices. But you will need to buy a starter kit to be able to become an affiliate and sell the products and recruit other affiliates and customers under you.

If you do buy the starter kit you will be credited back your $35.00 membership fee.

The pros

  • Extensive training
  • Experienced mentors
  • 25 percent discount on products
  • Low-cost entry fees
  • Rewards program
  • Worldwide customers and support
  • High-quality products
  • Solid company

The pros are endless with so many selling points and the size of their commission program really makes them a step above most MLM programs.

The cons

The biggest cons are from former associates and all the negative publicity their claims have created.

The founders’ former association with the marketing company called Young Living created much negative publicity. And when many people hear something negative, they seem to believe it for face value and then move on, never looking back and checking to see if it was really true.

This leads to negative reviews and many bad statements for a company. So you must be ready to hear negative feedback from some in the industry if you become affiliates for Doterra.

The products have been given a bad reputation of not being pure by the former company. Though this was all proven to be false accusations, again people tend to hear what is first reported and run with it. So associates must be able to deal with misguided negative views.

Another con is the price of their oils. While you can buy comparable oils in stores for a much lower price, the company claims you are getting what you pay for with these other companies. And the customer retention numbers Doterra boasts would back that claim.

Our View

While their former company tried to take them to court and sue them and supposedly had a negative review campaign going (according to many sources but none confirmed), this company has not only survived but is thriving.

They are worldwide and boast over 1 billion dollars in sales annually. They even own a nonprofit foundation that helps people all over the world.

Every single negative issue brought against them has been disproved and they continue to grow at an astounding rate.

Their foundation continues to do wonderful work around the world and the quality and purity of their products have withstood numerous scientific studies and analysis.

The company has their own purity program in place to ensure the purity of their oils and products.

We give this program a big thumbs up and highly recommend this company to any and all interested in making money working a legitimate MLM program!

We hope this article helps you in understanding what this company is all about and how we feel about it.

  1. A really helpful and unusually balanced review: most of what I have read about this company has been either very positive or very negative so it’s good to come across a more considered opinion. From your review, it sounds like, as MLM programs go, this one from Doterra is pretty good, but MLM is not in itself all that great for most people. Having tried a completely unrelated MLM program which made me zero money I’m not keen to get into again but I’m always interested to read about it. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi,

      How happy I am that somebody finds this review really helpful and unusually balanced. You’re right, most reviews about this company or any other company or product are either very positive or very negative. But I wanted to give a more balanced opinion of it.

      Yes, this company is an MLM program. Yet as you so rightly observed, this particular called Doterra is pretty good. MLM is not in itself all that great for most people because of the pyramid structure. All those small numbers of people at the top make all the money and all those big numbers of affiliates at the bottom lose out. This is because as more and more people join, it becomes difficult to recruit more people. And as people at the bottom lose money, they become dissatisfied and stop recruiting.

      Is the solution join quickly and make all the money before all the others join and lose out? That will be immoral.

      The solution to me is to study the mlm company and separate the very few good from the majority bad ones.

      Doterra, I believe, is one of the good ones.

      Thanks for commenting.

  2. Im interested in the essential oils but not the MLM per say. Are you a member of the MLM? If you are I would love to hear more about it and your personal experience with the program. I’ve never done an MLM marketing job, but I do like oils. Do you have a favorite essential oils product that they produce? If so please let me know how it’s working out for you. Have a good day friend.

  4. Hello Akoli,

    I personally haven’t bought any type of Doterra Essential Oils and their products yet. But them seem to be high in quality because they have over 1 billion dollars in sales annually. I like the fact that the entry fees are low and they offer 25% discount for their products. It’s really doesn’t matter if the company has groundless negative reviews. What’s important is the feedbacks from the people who brought their products. I am glad I got to know about this legitimate MLM program. Could you please tell me the price of a starter kit?

    • Hi Anjali,

      Oh, you personally haven’t bought any type of Doterra Essential Oils and any other of their products yet. Of course, quality product sells itself that’s why they were able to make over 1 billion dollars in sales annually. You can check their free eBooks on the products here.

      Yes, the fact that the entry fees are low is a motivation to join them. The 25% discount they offer also.

      Every company will have some negative reviews.But as you said it correctly, “what’s important is the feedbacks from the people who brought their products.”

      Check the price of a starter kit on eBay?

      Thank you for your comments and your interest in doterra.

  5. I have heard of Young Living but not Doterra. Interesting that this is an MLM based on essential oils. Being natural and plant-based is necessary as a health and healing product and I like that it has a variety of blends and not only individual oils. It would be interesting to see the products as there are quite a number of applications mentioned such as cleaning, supplements, personal care etc. I am curious and will surely check this more. Thanks for sharing – Stanley

    • Hi Stanley,

      I have also heard of Young Living but I must admit with you that many people don’t know about Doterra yet.

      Yes, you’re right, this is an MLM based on essential oils. I have to agree with you again that “being natural and plant-based is necessary as a health and healing product.” Health concerns are making people look to products without side effects.Yes, they offer a variety of blends and not only individual oils. Just visit the site and you would see the products: cleaning, supplements, personal care etc. Sinceyou are curious and will surely check this more, I want you to go and download free eBooks of the products here.

      Thanks for vsiting and commenting.
