“We rise by lifting others” – Robert Ingersoll
I’ve spent most of my life wanting to make an impact. Lately, this desire has been building up, igniting new fires in my personal and professional life, leading me to expand my business in creative and joyous ways.
Essential oils have always been a core part of my health, but now my business Sol + Co has evolved from only offering photography to also sharing my love of essential oils with my community.
The funny thing is, it was meant to be. When Sol + Co was created, it was done so to enable a space to house my three core values: CONNECTION, EMPOWERMENT and GRAND ADVENTURE. Recently, after a series of major events, I came to realise that I needed to seek more of these, more real connection, a greater way to empower others, and more freedom for grand adventure.
Enter dōTERRA essential oils.
This new journey has happened organically… with a great deal of magic.
My life tends to revolve around health, wellness, curiosity, and self-development. So as I looked to grow my business in creative new ways, I knew whatever I took on board had to satisfy my passions too. Photography is a big deal for me, it’s one of my favourite ways to connect with others and earn a living, but somehow over the years, I’ve felt like something was missing.
2016 was a massively challenging year for me in every way. There was lots of enforced time out where I needed to rest and recover. While embracing downtime, I realised I was actually feeling lonely in my job. Photo shoots were wonderful, the flexibility was awesome, but there was a lot of time spent working from home alone. It dawned on me that this wasn’t something I wanted anymore. And as I consciously looked into my career, I also realised that I was that I was trading time for money!
In the midst of these big aha moments, a seed was planted. I began to think about how to move forward in life and in business, taking care of these elements in a way that felt abundant, easy and graceful.
I wanted to do photo shoots for the joy and love of it, I wanted to go on holidays and still get paid, I wanted to start a family and take time off to be a mum and yep, you guessed it, still, get paid.
My yearning to make a difference in the world grew and grew too. This is something that has ALWAYS been important to me and also something I felt was out of my reach. I just couldn’t see a way to do this… YET!
There was a whole lot of health stuff going on (a story for another day), which led me down a path of exploration, one that ticked ALL of the boxes and added so many more!
I spent some time searching…
Looking to Mother Nature and how to incorporate more healing into my life.
Looking into connection and teamwork, and how I can work with others, lift them up and create more abundance for all of us.
Looking ahead and wondering how I can continue on this life adventure all the while feeling supported and at peace.
Reiki and essential oils, that’s how.
But in typical Lauren style…
I heard a nudge from my intuition and didn’t act on it straight away. Fear stepped in and so I sat with it, not wanting to move. Until I couldn’t sit with it any longer. I’d heard about dōTERRA essential oils before and I’d been following two very inspiring dōTERRA ladies for a while, watching how they incorporated these oils into their life and business. Then in early 2017 I dreamt about these oils every night! Every single night these little bottles would find their way into my dreams and it happened enough times for me to FINALLY listen. First of all, in true Lauren form, I did the research. All The Research!
Here’s what I found out about dōTERRA:
- Every oil is a Certified Therapeutic Grade product
- I would receive unlimited financial, personal and business support
- There’s a compensation plan that is unlimited (I’m still getting my head around this potential!)
- They really, truly work.
I quickly became extremely grateful for these little oils WHY? Because they’ work! These oils have a whole lot of science and magic in them, and every day I am blown away with how they support me.
What really stood out for me was that I found a company whose philanthropic heart was shining brightly.
A company whose values matched mine, who were doing such amazing work in the world. A company who made it EASY for little me to make a big difference. THIS is why I joined the company. THIS is why I want to share dōTERRA with the world!
As my fabulous business partner Alice Nicolls says;
“When most of us buy a product, we never think about what the process has been to get that product to the shelf. Which is why so many businesses treat the manufacturing process so poorly and unethically. With barely a second thought I decided to give the business a go. In my mind it was a low-investment side-hustle for a product I was passionate about that helped everyone from the famers and growers, all the way through to the small business owners who shared their value and the end user who could support themselves emotionally, physically and spiritually with these oils.”
I feel exactly the same way!
There is so much to love about this company. For example, the FULL purchase price of each dōTERRA Hope Touch bottle is donated to the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation which supports Operation Underground Railroad Rescue.
O.U.R. Rescue is an organisation that consists of the world’s experts in extraction operations and anti-child trafficking efforts. They have come together to bring an end to child slavery and sex trafficking, prosecuting perpetrators and implementing rehabilitation around the world.
dōTERRA Hope Touch is a distinct essential oil blend combining the fresh scent of Bergamot with Ylang Ylang and Frankincense, then sweetened slightly with the warming aroma of Vanilla Bean Absolute. AND… it’s only $26.
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” – Gandhi
Every time I buy an oil, I am making a difference, not only in my life and in my family’s life, but also in the lives of so many people around the world.
This is the way forward and I believe this with all of my heart and soul.
Let’s not forget that this business, this journey, is also a way to evoke more real connection. It’s a way to get together, to learn, to stay curious, to be trained by extraordinary people who are leaders in their field. It’s a beautiful way to feel empowered daily.
Leaders like Tara Bliss, who is another wonderful business partner of mine and in her own beautiful words; “I’m in the business of personal growth and leadership. And I’m so incredibly blessed to stand behind an impeccable company with a rich culture, excellent training, world-class product and generous compensation plan. This is teamwork at its absolute best and most abundant.”
