How to Host a Successful Event in 6 Easy Steps

After meeting with the dōTERRA group in Columbus, Ohio, I am thrilled to see how well the Look Young, Feel Young events are going! We have some amazing leaders in our field who REALLY know how to host successful events.

If you are new to dōTERRA and need a little guidance on how to host your own event, here is a list of items that will help make your event a smashing success!

1. Publicize your event. Create a flyer or send invitations by mail and/or email. Be sure to include the location, date, time, theme or topic, speaker, and contact details.

2. Set up the venue early in the day. Whether the event is being held in your home or a conference room, be sure to prepare the room with chairs, tables, screen, projector (or a table top display if you’re not using a PowerPoint), and any necessary cables. It’s helpful to have a camera on hand to capture fun photos of your event!

3. Treats are optional, but well worth it! It’s easy to offer lemon water and a few munchies. Look at these goodies that the Ohio team prepared. They were delicious!

4. Display table. You will definitely want to display dōTERRA products, and perhaps include a flyer with the uses and benefits of the products displayed for guests to take home. ALWAYS have a diffuser plugged in with your favorite essential oils diffusing so that guests can enjoy an uplifting atmosphere.

5. Order forms, IPC Agreements, and product guides on each chair. These are a MUST for allowing your guests to select the products they are most interested in and for enrolling with dōTERRA.

6. Follow up. Be sure to thank your guests for attending, and then follow up to answer questions, guide them through the enrollment process, and to offer tips and advice. Be sure to ask if they are interested in having you host a class for their friends and family members too!

With these 6 easy steps, you will soon be a pro at planning dōTERRA events and educating others on the benefits of dōTERRA CPTG essential oils. Remember, there are so many benefits of hosting events, such as building friendships, sharing ideas, and having FUN!

  1. I will be hosting my first oil party next week and would love to have some goodies that incorporate the oils. Are there recipes that could be shared? The treats from Betsy and Kari in Ohio looked wonderful!

  2. I will be hosting my first event next week and would love some of the recipes for the treats you had at your party above. Is that possible?

  3. Hi Brittany! I don’t have all the recipes from this event because so many people volunteered to make yummy treats to share. We typically always have brownies with peppermint oil. And here is one of the amazing recipes I got my hands on from our “Earth Day Event”. Enjoy!

    No-Bake Energy Balls
    Carol Lawson

    Ingredients:
    2 cups rolled oats
    1/2 cup cranberries
    1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
    1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
    1/4 cup cacao nibs
    1 teaspoon cinnamon powder or one drop doTERRA Cinnamon EO
    1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
    1/3 cup agave nectar
    1/4 cup brown rice syrup
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Cocoa powder or shredded coconut to coat balls

    Directions:
    1. Combine oats, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, cacao nibs and cinnamon powder (If using Cinnamon Oil add later to the wet ingredients) in large bowel. Set aside.
    2. In a different bowel, combine almond butter, agave nectar, brown rice syrup, and vanilla (Cinnamon Oil) until well mixed.
    3. Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients and stir well.
    4. Slightly moisten hands with water and roll dough into 1-inch balls. Coat balls in shredded coconut or cocoa powder (the will look like truffles!). Store in the fridge. If you can wait, they taste better the next day! You can also freeze and have it handy, they take 15 mins. to defrost!

    NOTE: Making the balls is fun but can take some time. You can do this recipe in 10 mins. or less if you pour the mixture into a square dish (8×8)and press firmly with your fingers to settle it. Sprinkle with your choice of coating. Place it in freezer for 30 mins. and cut in bite size pieces or in shape of a bar. Or place in fridge for 1 hour and cut. ALSO, feel free to create your own version of it, mix and match ingredients, try different flavors: Raisins, nuts, other seeds, flax seeds, other nut butters,
    honey, barley malt syrup, other coatings, use whatever you have or like!

  4. For my first doTERRA party, I served no bake cheesecake made with lemon essential oil and citris bliss essential oil (the citris bliss gave it a creamy orange flavor, like a cream sicle ice cream bar!). It was a big hit! Here’s the recipe,
    Cream together 1/3 cup sugar and 8 ounces cream cheese
    Add 16 ounces sour cream then
    Add 2 drops Lemon essential oil( if you want lemon flavored) or
    Add 2 drops citris bliss for a creamy orange, mix well
    Fold in an 8 ounce container of cool whip,
    Pour into a 9 inch Graham cracker pie crust and refrigerate 2 hours.
    This recipe makes 1 pie, but if you double it it will makes 3- 8 inch pies.
    Hope you like it :-)
