Let me introduce myself, my name is Des Donnery I own and run this blog/website with the help of a small team of Wellness Advocates and guest authors to help empower and educate you on the many uses and powerful benefits of Essential Oils. That's me on the right hand side in the picture above standing next to The Founding Executive, Chairman and CEO of dōTERRA​​​​ Essential Oils Mr. David Stirling. 

dōTERRA Wellness Advocate

I became a Wellness Advocate for dōTERRA six months after I started using "The Oils" for some ailments I'd suffered with. The results that I have experienced firsthand have made me want to share their powerful benefits with others and help them achieve a better standard of health and quality of life. 

I travel a lot for my profession and fly back and forth to a lot of different countries and destinations, mostly long haul flights that fly through the night. Doing this for a long period of time has played havoc with my sleeping pattern and I had always found it hard to switch off at night time when it came to sleeping. 

My sister has worked as a natural therapist and has been a wellness advocate of essential oils for a number of years. She had suggested to me to try a natural approach to help me sleep better. I have to admit I was a huge sceptic at first and refused to try essential oils and thought I could manage the problem with sleeping pills and over the counter medications by myself. Basically I just wasn't interested in a product I hadn't heard of before and I have to say I was very closed minded about the whole thing, in my ignorance. 

​Finally I gave in when other treatments and over the counter meds stopped working or their side effects became greater than the issue's I was actually suffering from. 

The first essential oil I was introduced to was Lavender. My sister gave me her diffuser to use and some Lavender essential oil. The instructions she gave me were extremely simple "fill the diffuser with water to the red line, add 3-4 drops of Lavender and switch it on" it really couldn't be any easier. That night I used the diffuser for the first time, I had one of the deepest most restful sleeps I have had in a very long time. I was totally amazed and blown away by how well they'd worked for me, I just had to investigate them further and see what other ailments I could use the oils for. That was the start of my essential oil addiction, from that moment on I was completely hooked. I continue to use Lavender essential oil among many many others to this day and will always have my favorite essential oils at hand, be it at home or when I travel for work.

My very first essential oil purchase was The Touch Kit. This kit has the 9 most popular essential oils included already mixed with fractionated coconut oil in 10ML Roll-On bottles for simple topical use.

​In September 2017 I was invited along to a dōTERRA European boot-camp training session in Oeiras, which is 30 minute's drive south of Lisbon, Portugal. The training was for 3 days and I learned so much about dōTERRA as a company and all about the amazing product range they have. The event was held in a beautiful spot very close to the beach and coastline. It was a very enlightening and inspiring trip for me.

​As a surprise announcement (which we only found out at the last minute) the Founding Executive, Chairman and CEO of dōTERRA Essential Oils David Stirling was going to be in attendance. I got to listen to David speak about how and why he set up the company, his vision, ethics and values that set him on his path to create a 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil business. It instantly made me want to share these amazing products with others and share my successes and how I use essential oils to improve my health every day.

I now love engaging with people about natural forms of health care and especially how essential oils can possibly help with a wide variety and range of ailments. Myself and my sister hold essential oil classes to help empower others to look after their own health and well-being and be proactive in looking after themselves.

I can be reached through the contact page of this website if you would like to discuss any health related queries relating to essential oils or if you would like to purchase The Oils for yourself and receive a 25% discount to start your natural health care journey. I am not an expert in any way and do not claim to be one, but I will try my very best to point you in the right direction and share my experience of essential oils with you.

Stay Healthy
