Colleen McCartney

I spent almost 10 years in corporate IT, making good money but felt like I was missing something.  It was a sense of purpose.  I was making great money, but felt like I wasn’t making a difference in the world.  About 2012 I had some severe health challenges.   I went to my doctors and they were able to put a “band-aid” on the problem but weren’t able to address the causation of the issue.  Nobody ever mentioned nutrition, sleep, stress managment, or anything like that to me.  I was lucky enough to find essential oils when searching for a solution to my sudden severe seasonal challanges that were prohibiting me from going outside & living the active lifestyle I was used to.  I found that using essential oils was extremely effective in supporting a proper histamine response to seasonal threats.   After using the oils for a few months, I finally broke down and tried the daily supplements which really gave my body what it needed to function properly.   What nobody told me is that my body needed different nutrients to function properly.  I was not giving my body the proper support before.  When the  Energy Complex & Cellular Complex came out, I was all for it and it has drastically improved my daytime sleepiness, and sleep attacks have virtually stopped & I have more energy then ever.   This has improved my quality of life across the board in ways I never imagined possible.

I knew that I  was meant to share these incredible healing oils and help make a positive impact in the lives of those around me.  I have since been a keynote speaker at many events, expos, & wellness centers throughout the world.  I look forward to being your guide on your natural wellness adventure and seeing what essential wellness can do for you 🙂 Get your oils today here: http://www.mydoterra.com/totallyessential

                                 Olivia Pisaretz

Hey there my name is Olivia Pisaretz! I am so excited to help you explore the power of Essential Oils and how they can support you on your journey to health and financial wellness. I currently live in the Virginia Beach and support a team of wellness advocates with my mother Ruthann Pisaretz that expands up and down the East Coast as well as Canada! I was introduced to the oils by Colleen Mcartney and my life has been enhanced beyond words ever since.

I was raised on homeopathic remedies so it was very natural for me to be drawn to the oils. Having struggled with digestion issues, seasonal threats. I was relieved to find something so safe and natural that I could use without questioning the quality and the negative effects it would have my body. The oils are by far the most effective remedy I have used to support these issues in the past because they are so pure and powerful. Some still have an immediate effect for symptomatic issues while others require more patience and consistency which I feel are amazing qualities this company strives to revive in our fast paced world. I am passionate about helping others become more solution oriented and living out their goals and dreams. I truly believe anything is possible if you are committed. My mother and I want to support anyone willing and open to making positive healthy changes in their lives. Being a part of this company is just like being part of a huge family that really cares about the well being of you and your loved ones!
