dōTERRA is More Than Just Products: It’s a Mission Christina Frei, a wellness advocate for dōTERRA Essential Oils, helps educate and empower people about natural and healthy ways of living by offering free classes to share her knowledge. She mentors those that want to become wellness advocates themselves and provides support for her students throughout their journey with dōTERRA Essential Oils. “I am here every step of the way for anyone interested in dōTERRA, whether they only use the products personally or if they want to get involved as a business,” says Frei. “My intention is to educate and empower people, giving them the tools they need to change their lives.” According to Frei, her classes teach people why they should want to use essential oils, how to use them and why dōTERRA Essential Oils are preferable to others. dōTERRAprovides therapeutic-grade essential oils and wellness products to people that care about improving their health and the health of their loved ones. According to Frei, “dōTERRA is more than just an essential oils company, in fact, their number one

selling product is their Life Long Vitality Wellness Supplements. They also have health, beauty and even cleaning supplies.” Frei was drawn to dōTERRA while searching for a more natural solution to her ongoing headaches. She was fed up with numerous side affects from prescription drugs. “I discovered that dōTERRA is about a wellness lifestyle, and that they look for the root cause of an ailment, not just focusing on the symptoms,” says Frei. “I’ve found the essential oils to be safe, inexpensive and more effective than prescription drugs. I am able to use them safely without harmful side effects.” Frei shares that dōTERRA has made a positive wellness change in her family’s life, saying, “Along with the friends and family I have helped with the oils, I am dedicated to the sharing of them and I am committed to being a part of their journey.” For more information, call 702-526-2196, email ChristinaFrei@ or visit or
