Young Living essential oils got fined $760,000 for sourcing rosewood and spikenard oils illegally. Although they voluntarily admitted wrongdoing and now have a compliance plan in place, it still doesn’t change what happened in the past and it draws into question what other things haven’t reached the surface yet.
Kristy if you are reading this, I want you to know that although this video was more on the funny side, I still gots love for you gurl and if I saw you in person there would be no hard feelings.
doTERRA and Young Living have a lot of lovers and a lot of haters. It’s very important to make sure you are presenting fact based information when representing each company. If you are new to essential oils or either company then making sure you go with someone that you know, like, and trust will be absolutely critical to make sure you have the most positive experience.
Some valid points were made, but this comes down to making sure we have all the facts, accurate facts, and that we are interpreting both of those accurately in order to come to an accurate conclusion about anything. Accuracy and being fact based with the information that is available should always be the main focus.
With the trial closed and the verdict issued that doTERRA was innocent of any wrongdoing, the next issue at hand is the top 6 factors mentioned above. You want to work with, buy from, and ultimately be a part of a company that is focused on transparency, equal pay for equal work, and telling the TRUTH at all times from the Founder(s) since leadership and culture trickles down. doTERRA was and continues to be that company for me and I’m glad to be a part of such a high integrity and quality focused company.
At the end of the day, haters are gonna hate and there’s nothing you can do about it. Haters don’t consider themselves haters more often than not and have very valid points however they typically lack self-awareness, lack having all the facts (from both sides), lack accurate facts, or lack the ability to interpret the items above objectively. This causes them to come to false conclusions which isn’t healthy for anyone.
doTERRA and Young Living are the two biggest essential oil companies in the world and have pros and cons when it comes to their product offerings and how their distributors represent the company.
Don’t let deconstructive criticism or hate get you down. Focus on having the right perception, with accurate info, becoming more reasonable, and understanding which cognitive biases you are displaying.
The more self aware and objective you can be, the more positive your influence will be with others. The goal is loving and helping others, not trying to win an argument because you think it’s a verbal tennis match.
Presuppositions, cognitive dissonance, and confirmation bias are all things that should be considered when you discuss doTERRA or Young Living with others in order to be more self aware and objective.
doTERRA and Young Living utilize farms all over the world to source their oils from and vary in their percentage of corporately owned farms and partner farms.
