DoTerra not only produces the best essential oils in the world but they make such a huge difference in the world by supporting farmers & distillers of oils around the world. 💕❤️

We shed a few tears today as we reminisced about the conversation three people had 8.5 years ago in a small restaurant in Utah about sourcing the world's highest quality essential oils and empowering families by educating them about natural solutions. We became so passionate about the "what ifs" as we started to dream in living color. We talked about building distilleries around the world that would produce these beautiful oils that would surely bless the lives of many.

A big piece of this dream came to fruition today as we celebrated the opening of Esseterre, doTERRA's world-class distillery, in Dobrich, Bulgaria.

Little did we understand so many years ago how big of an impact this dream would have on the world. Over 25% of Bulgarians live at or below the poverty line. The cities are littered with abandoned factories and remnants of what was once a thriving industrious country. The people desperately need and want jobs.

There is a rich heritage of essential oils here that has been declining due to the lack of government subsidies. Many of the distilleries were sold for parts or destroyed. We now have the opportunity to bring that heritage back as we breathe life into a country that desperately needs hope. The growing conditions next to the Black Sea couldn't be more perfect for growing aromatic plants.

This distillery, staffed by experts in essential oil distillation and farming, will employ hundreds of farmers in this area. We are excited for what the future holds! My heart sings today!

You'll have to come to convention for the rest of the story. :)

At the beginning of the therapy section, we groom the horses. This has many physically, mentally and emotionally benefits. This is good for desensitizing kids with sensory issues and it incorporates brain gym activities! Many kids bond with the horse during this time. #hippotherapy #speechtherapy

Reggie has become quite a therapy cat. Some of the kids don't pay any attention to cats but Reggie would give them some cuddles and the kids would respond and pet him. Reggie's favorite though is S! Every time Reggie gets a chance he's jumping in his chair to say hi! #liomanaolana #therapycat #therapyfarm

When J rides rosebud, he focuses and calms down. When he's on her, he has to think about his posture while he feels her movements, which help his core strength and balance! He's also doing speech therapy while he's riding! #liomanaolana #hippotherapy #speechtherapy #therapyfarm

Our therapy chickens live in their coop which is more like a 3 bedroom mini condo! We have 23 exotic and friendly chickens! Their a good sensory tool for many of the kids. The kids love spending time with the chickens, collecting eggs, feeding them and of course getting to hold them! 😀
