Wow!! September is going to be so amazing.

First off, the time has arrived for our 2nd Annual Essential Oil Nurses Conference! Then this will be followed by doTERRA’s annual education convention in Salt Lake City.

Having fun at the doTERRA Annual Convention in 2018.


The theme for this year’s Essential Oil Nurses (EORN) Conference is “GET IN FRONT”.  And the doTERRA Convention’s theme is “TOGETHER”. I could not think of two more appropriate themes than these. 

For the EORN attendees, this year’s speakers are going to inspire you to Get in Front of myths, misinformation and fear on the use of essential oil in healthcare. 

To make sure as many people as possible can attend this event, we have an online, live-stream and recording option for everyone!!  And nurses, you can earn continuing education credit even if you attend online.
