Jen and Jeff Frey
doTERRA essential oils have enhanced the lives of Jen and Jeff Frey, and their family, in important and beneficial ways, affording them a holistic lifestyle using nature’s remedies to support health and wellness.
With more than 20 years of experience using essential oils to maintain health and wellness for her family, Jen has created a wholesome way of life. Employed initially as a medical assistant, she chose to become a stay-at-home mom. Jen’s first instinct was to give her children the best opportunity to live naturally, so she began researching natural living and holistic remedies, and sought out a more natural career as a licensed massage therapist, where she had the opportunity to use essential oils in her practice and gain more experience helping others enhance their wellbeing. Jen no longer practices massage, but keeps her licensing credentials current according to state regulations.
Grateful for the benefits that being a doTERRA Wellness Advocate brings, Jen is able to focus on her life’s purpose––empowering and teaching others how to discover natural ways to support the immune system, provide self-care and become aware of healing options. Her passion includes believing in and leading women, especially mothers, to find their purpose in life. “doTERRA is essentially a self-development company,” shares Jen. “The essential oils support both physical and emotional needs, which help people to pursue their true intentions for living well.”
Near and dear to her heart is teaching the next generation about self-care. “Knowing that the life expectancy for our children is less than our own motivates me to be of service to others by educating them about powerful changes that will make a difference to humankind,” she explains.
Jeff shares Jen’s sentiment of service to others and is passionate about empowering individuals to become self-reliant by achieving professional self-sufficiency for time and financial freedom. As an avid outdoorsman with a great love of the countryside, he is an amazing guide who has traveled all over the world gaining extensive knowledge of its land and game.
Jeff’s great love of the outdoors brings with it the knowledge that using essential oils can enhance the vitality of the community. “Each person has vitality within themselves to continuing living,” shares Jeff. “We assist people in learning how to enhance their lives through opportunities provided by doTERRA so that they can live active, exuberant lives filled with dynamic purpose. This will help them show up powerfully in every moment to give back and serve God and mankind.”
As natural lifestyle advocates, Jen and Jeff share and educate about doTERRA’s business opportunity and products full-time. They offer free classes or one-on-one meetings to provide education about the many benefits and uses essential oils offer, and willingly teach others how to earn a living while sharing these wonderful gifts of the Earth. Empowering individuals and families to be confident and successful in achieving optimal health and fulfilled lives brings great joy to Jen and Jeff.

Essential Oils Effectively Enhance Life For the Whole Family
The aromatic qualities of essential oils draw attention, yet the benefits go beyond their inviting bouquet. Found in the flowers, roots, seeds, stems, bark and other plant parts, essential oils are naturally occurring volatile compounds, meaning the aroma of the oil quickly rises into the air. They play a role in plant pollination and protect plants against threats from the environment. Throughout history, essential oils were used to enhance beauty regimens, recipes and healing practices.
Using essential oils helps families to manage their physical and emotional health. They support the body by helping to relieve stress and ease feelings of tension, soothe occasional skin irritations, reduce bloating and occasional indigestion, promote a healthy complexion, and may help to enhance mood and balance emotions.
Combining the use of essential oils with bodywork, such as massage therapy, further extends their benefits. Skin and muscles are soothed, smoothed and invigorated. As an example, the soothing and cooling oil blend of doTERRA Deep Blue has the primary benefit of providing a comforting massage, supporting the day-to-day activities of working long hours, as well as lifting and engaging in athletic activities.
The most important quality of an essential oil is its purity. doTERRA, named for the Latin derivative meaning “gift of the Earth”, is a company founded in 2008 with a mission to provide families with the health-promoting benefits of essential oils. The founders established an innovative standard of therapeutic quality, Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG). doTERRA is the only essential oil company to assay their oils using eight different protocols during the process of certification to ensure purity.
It is imperative to understand that not all essential oils are tested and held to a standard of therapeutic quality. Using an untested essential oil can mean exposure to harmful contaminants, chemicals, adulterants, heavy metals and germs. Consumers cannot expect that other essential oils are safe to use aromatically, topically or internally, unless the manufacturer labels the bottle accordingly. doTERRA labels essential oil bottles where appropriate for internal use.
The growing process begins with proper seed varieties. Plants are sourced from indigenous regions and grown to maintain purity, considering length and other factors of the growing season and harvesting the right part of the plant to maintain the composition of the essential oil to reap the most reliable benefits.
The distillation process is an art form, and experienced distillers gently and carefully use plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. All this fine-tuning is done to ensure the highest quality of production. This rigorous process to ensure purity is the reason why doTERRA essential oils have become a supplemental health care option for use with families, hospitals and medical centers.
The aromas of essential oils are absorbed quickly through olfactory receptors within the nasal cavity which are linked to the brain’s limbic system. Functions including smell, behavior, memory and emotions are sustained by this part of the brain. Due to this connection, essential oils have a potent effect when applied aromatically, and can stimulate, calm or soothe, depending upon the oil of choice. Aromatic application includes smelling an essential oil from a drop in a hand or on a cotton ball. Diffusing places the aroma into the air. Other uses include combining essential oils in a spray bottle with water to mist carpets, linens and furniture, as well as adding them to laundry and household cleaning.
Beneficial areas for topical application include forehead, temple, neck, chest, abdomen, arms, legs and the bottom of feet. When using an essential oil for the first time or one that is particularly potent, doTERRA advises the use of carrier oil, such fractionated coconut oil, for dilution. The recommend dilution ratio is typically one drop of essential oil to three drops of carrier oil. It is important to note that a dose will vary for each individual, based on age, size and overall health status. A few drops can be added to a moisturizing cream for skin application, or to a cold or hot towel compress to soothe and relax. Areas that can be sensitive should be avoided, such as facial areas, near and around the eyes, eyes and inner ears and broken, damaged or otherwise injured skin.
The rigorous testing process that ensures purity with no added fillers confirms that doTERRA essential oils can be taken internally, as flavoring and culinary additions, or used as dietary supplements to support health. Small amounts of essential oils can replace dried herbs in cooking and baking, be added to smoothies or taken in a vegetable capsule for targeted and potent health benefits. doTERRA recommends proper dosing according to labeling recommendations, and other professional guidelines should be strictly followed to avoid toxicity.
Using the natural power of doTERRA essential oils as gifts from the Earth enhances the lives of families by providing benefits that promote physical and emotional wellbeing.
