doTERRA Gives Back

News
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Utah) – Downtown Salt Lake City will be packed from now through the weekend. 
 
doTERRA has over 30,000 people packing the Salt Palace and Vivant Smart Home Arena for its annual convention
 
McKay Brown, the Senior Director of Corporate Communications for doTERRA said, “We are actually the largest cooperate convention in the state.”
 
15,500 hotel rooms have been booked. 360,000 meals will be served at local restaurants. 
doTERRA expects $28.5 million to be spent in our economy until Sunday morning. 
 
“I love the company. I love what they stand for. There is too many reasons why,” said Oregonian Jessica Stewart. 
 
For two years, Stewart had to use the company oils after a car accident to get back on her feet.
 
“I don’t like to put foreign things into my system. I try to be as healthy as I can so if I can find a natural solution for something, an ailment that helps with a problem, that’s what I’m going to go for,” she said. 
 
In the United Kingdom, the oils helped one man’s four children battling chronic diseases. 
 
“I don’t have to rely on medication. I don’t have to rely on doctors. We still need doctors and nurses–they are very important– but I don’t have to rely on them. I can go get an oil, pick it and use it,” said Nick Barrett.
 
The oils aren’t the only thing that has these convention goers excited. It’s the community service projects across the world.
 
“That is like one of the best parts about it. The Healing Hands Foundation has really made such a difference in this world,” said Ashlyn Nakasu of Oregon. 
 
One of doTERRA’s biggest projects was in Haiti. The company saw that children were spending three hours a day walking to get water.
 
“doTERRA went in and we built. We installed water wells so that the people would have the water they needed. So they wouldn’t have to trek up and down hills anymore,” said Brown. 
 
And so that many of those children can go to school .
 
From building wells to ramps at home for disabled veterans. doTERRA is proud to serve. 
 
“The idea with our service is we want to help out locally as well, where we live and where we work. So we are continually looking for ways to help the people right here in our community as well,” Brown adds. 
 
“It feels good to be apart of something that does good because you know they have good intention and its pure,” Nakasu said.
