Hi! I am Taylor Elliott, a native Floridian living in the upstate of South Carolina, an introvert on most days, a mom, sister, wife, friend, entrepreneur, and community member among other roles. I love basking in the sunlight, finding adventures near and far, and hanging out with my tribe. My previous careers have involved civil engineering, program management, business consulting, and account management. Now I spend my time teaching individuals and groups the power of essential oils, how to use them to transition from toxic household items, and growing an independent entrepreneurial team through business consulting.
It was never my intention to join dōTERRA® as a wellness advocate and begin to build a business but I believe that things and ideas only fall on people when they are ready to take on a new venture. My goals shifted in a manner that made me want to be a leader of a community that would support and build one another in our various endeavors and encourage each other to truly be our best selves.
I started using essential oils when my sister asked me to try the joyful blend to help me get through those long and gray New York City winters. Flabbergasted and excited about the results, I quickly ordered more and starting learning how to incorporate them into my daily life and health habits. When I became pregnant with my first son, I turned to dōTERRA® to rid our apartment of various toxins through cleaning products, bath and beauty supplies, and various over the counter medicines. That said, it wasn't until after I gave birth that I really found myself relying on the daily habits of a supplement and essential oil routine. I began taking the Lifelong Vitality Pack and putting a drop of Frankincense under my tongue every morning to help support my body through recovery, postpartum, and into my new role as a mother. I experienced more mental clarity and less fatigue, a stronger immune system, a more efficient metabolism, and generally healthier skin, hair, and nails. My new daily health routine changed my life and health goals and I could no longer keep it to myself. Oils are now the first thing we reach for almost everything including general proactive support, to ease aches and pains, boost immune systems, and manage emotional needs.
This page is designed to provide overviews of essential oils and will often direct you to links on various websites, specifically research and blog posts that you can also find on the dōTERRA® website. I am not a chemist, a scientist, or a doctor, although I do have a soft spot for the hard sciences given my engineering background. Part of what I love about this community is that it is a space for learning and curiosity and want to encourage that of my own team members. I sincerely hope that you find this page a helpful resource whether you've been using essential oils for years or are still just curious about them. Please do not hesitate to send me a message if you have questions, or you think there is something I may be able to help with.
