Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Getting into essential oils and what it means to be a doTERRA advocate and create a business
  • What epigenetics is all about
  • How essential oils play a role in epigenetics
  • Reclaiming your power over your health
  • Managing your brain, your thoughts, and our hormones

  • What makes doTERRA different from other brands
  • Laura’s essential oil routine


Key Takeaways:

  • Your genes aren’t your destiny. Just because you have a gene, it doesn’t mean it’s going to express itself.
  • Whether a gene gets turned on or off is largely dictated by your dietary choices, your stress, your environmental toxins, and your physical activity.
  • The essential oils fit into all the things in our life that we should be thinking of in terms of having the healthiest epigenome that we can have.


Action Steps:

  • Think about what feelings are coming up in your body and what thoughts are creating those feelings because it’s your feelings that drive your actions that in turn create results.
  • Look at the thoughts in your head and where they’re coming from and look at how you can change them to further influence the emotions that drive your actions.
  • Do thought work.
  • Make sure your brain is as sharp as it can be.


Laura said:

“Basically everything we know that creates a foundation for good wellness influences these epigenetic mechanisms that can turn on and off our genes.”


“We have so much power over our health, and we’ve never been taught that.”
