12 Days of Christmas doTERRA Contest – by Kimberley Milousis
About Lesson

The Heart of Christmas

Christmas celebrates the birth of Christ. Although Jesus likely wasn’t born on the 25th of December, it is somewhat fitting that we celebrate His birth close to the winter solstice (the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere). This date symbolically fits with what Christ brought to the world at His birth: at the darkest hour, Christ was born, hope was restored, and we were shown our way back to living as children of light.

I find it fascinating that, while Jesus was born right there in the midst of the people who were desperately awaiting His arrival, God saw fit to have the Magi (Wise Men) from the far East be among the first to welcome Him. With their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh in hand, they followed a star to find the newborn Christ. They knew that they would find what they hoped for by following that light.

Christmas festivities are important, be we would be wise to follow the example of the Magi. We need to realize that true hope isn’t found in the hustle and bustle and noise. It is found in the humble journey to the manger. Christ’s birth brings hope into our lives. With Him, we can trust that, even when things seem dark and hopeless, the future is bright!

Every December, dōTERRA loves to give free Frankincense as a way to remember the gift of the Magi. Watch how dōTERRA reflects the heart of Christmas in this video, which shares some information about the way they source their Frankincense oil. It is so encouraging that dōTERRA uses Frankincense as an opportunity to give hope and new life to struggling tribes in Somaliland, who are the ancient stewards of the Frankincense tree.

  1. I am glad that the people that are involved in growing and looking after the frankincense are being honoured and appreciated for what they are doing. I am also glad to hear that doTerra is doing amazing things and providing access to numerous types of facilities to improve the lives of these hard working people. Keep up the good work.

  2. Sylvie Sylvestre

    The importance of investing in people and helping implement a cooperative really stood out for me in this video. In the spirit of Christmas, it reminded me of the importance of helping each other out and ‘’teaching others to catch that fish’’.

    Short story for bonus entry: Now that I have recently discovered Vetiver which helps me to ground myself and to have a restful night’s sleep, I wish I had known of this wonderful EO 4 years ago when I had a burn-out looking after my elderly parents (mother admitted to long-term care with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s and Dementia and father living alone at home with a major depressive disorder). I wish to learn of other uses and benefits of Vetiver.

    1. Franck and Rachel Petrone

      The fact that doTERRA cares about the full picture and invests in the welfare of the harvesters is so refreshing to see. The strategy they use to benefit the families in every tier of the oil harvesting is proof that they are looking at long term sustainability and hope for many generations. As a parent, you don’t just want your own generation to prosper, but it means the world to know that your kids are going to do well and have a bright future as well. To me, that is the part that meant the most in that video. They are giving hope for their children to go farther and prosper.

  3. I had never seen the process of Frankincense being harvested, so this was very interesting to me! As Christ gives us hope of eternal blessing, these established cooperatives give hope of earthly blessing for these people. A gift of abundance and unity!
    Bonus entry: I could use Balance every day as my anxiety relief cure!

  4. It is heart warming to see that dōTERRA has given these clans community services (health centre and school) These trees that have been in their family for generations are now providing them with a fair wage.

  5. Charlene Saaiman

    I must say this is always a hard video to watch! What stood out for me was the following:
    ** How they refer to it as the hardest part of the world
    ** Only source of the poeple employment and resources
    ** they have nothing else to depend on in that area
    ** “middle-men” taking them for granted and cheating them
    ** where the little boy walk with his father and he says they have been doing this for 5 generations and it just occured that that little boy of 5 or 6 will be the 6th generation and doterra is making it possible!
    ** doterra saw potential immediately and what they have done re the boarding schools, health centre and now the hospital is just amazing

    I think poeple take the oils for granted sometimes and dont realise what the harvesters have to go through everyday to get us these amazing and powerful oils!

  6. Hope, the true essence of Christmas and of doTERRA. The hope and future that doTERRA has given the people of Somalia and the future generations of the harvesters. Hope of change for a better life, hope in humanity and in Christ. The hope for food and basic services because a good company has invested in the people in the community without robbing them of a life and future.

  7. I absolutely loved this video. The way doterra “invests” to make sure the farmers have good quality of life and can continue their work and pass it down to next generation, in making sure the sustainability of their sourcing stays alive is inspiring. I’ve always been a “giver”, through my time or through gifts. I never look at what people has given me to see what I should do or give in return. I give to make people’s life better, easier, happier and I see this in Doterra’s business integrity too. I find myself continuing these values in my doterra business. I give and share often not even in hope of enrollments in return.

    Bonus Entry: I had gifted my sister, who was struggling of many health issues following cancer, a bottle of DDR Prime and LLV supplements in hope of helping her conditions and believing frankincense was the solution to many of her problems. We were able to manage many of her physical problems and amazingly improved her mental and emotional state. She’s my living experiment success.

  8. It makes me proud of my doTerra choice. I want to support a company that gives back but also produces a high quality product in traditional custom. Frankincense is my every day oil i put it in my moisturizer day and night and not only is my skin so soft it, the scent calms me and brings me peace. I always knew it was special as it was gifted to baby Jesus, but now i know so much more. The connection of family stood out to me and that is Christmas to me.

  9. I can’t imagine having to live in the conditions these people do. I think it is great that doterra is working to support them and provide a livelihood for them.

  10. Frankincense is probably my absolute favourite oil. What stands out most for me is the way doTERRA invests in the local people as well as the process for harvesting the resin. I appreciate the systems that are put in place to ensure the sustainability of both the trees and the communities for years to come.

  11. Wow. This is amazing! Love how doTerra cares so much about those who are working for them. And harvesting frankincense looks so neat 🙂

  12. It’s really encouraging and amazing to see the difference doTerra has made in the lives of vulnerable people. How that must have boosted their own confidence and to realise they can do so much more for themselves and at the same time know they are helping others benefit from this amazing oil derived from the resin.

    Spirit of Christmas: To me the Spirit of Christmas is that God gave his Son as a gift to us and that by doTerra giving to the community, they are in turn giving to us – the gift that keeps on giving!

  13. I believe that the work that doTerra is doing relates to Christmas as it shows care and love for people that have been overlooked. At Christmas people are more open to giving and sharing and throughout the year, doTerra is providing this to these precious people. I also appreciate all the health benefits of frankincense, which we are now able to access due to doTerra’s generosity and care of people’s well-being.

  14. Such a touching video – my thoughts throughout the whole video are ‘how wonderful is doterra?’; always assisting and helping others to have that sustainability goal. I love learning about all the products, and learning about Frankincense today has put a smile on my face. One thing that stuck out is the stength of the women & the communities; their growth & the contributions; & the life long changes that have happened to them, in order to truely change their circumstances.

  15. Let me just start of by explaining that Christmas is the best time of the year for me!

    “Every December, dōTERRA loves to give free Frankincense as a way to remember the gift of the Magi.” Just like the wisemen gave Frankincense to Jesus and the main reason why we give gifts to each other every year in rememberance of Jesus – the greatest gift for us!

    The following however broke my heart:
    “The harvesters getting pennies for their resin.”
    How dare anyone take these people and a precious gift like that – fit for a KING – for pennies?

    “Long term sustainability”
    How amazing is ANY company to think long term – not just for their product but they take responsibility towards the farmers as well!

    “Healthcare for the first time ever!”
    Here my eyes actually drowned in tears. I am completely dependent on chronic meds. How do they do it? How have they been doing it? These people are so humble and I truly believe God has blessed them.

    doTERRA is changing the world. One oil at a time. One farmer at time. One child at a time.

    I am bursting with pride.

  16. Oh what a heart warming video! What a wonderful industry to support. I love how Doterra have invested in the community, looking out for the people, not just the product. Caring for the people, not just what they can give you. Christmas can be about stuff, but the family time, and relationships are so much more important.

    I love my frankincense, and so does my baby, I massage it into her belly ( heavily diluted with FCO) each nappy change. She loves it!

  17. The woman (whose name I forget” says “that seed of hope” – very reflective of Christmas time. Christmas is a time of hope. When we light the advent candles, one of the candles is always for hope. This was a touching video. Thank you for sharing.

  18. How blessed we are to have access to Frankincense oil. This world is full of so much greed and sadly far to often the beautiful and beneficial things of nature are being destroyed by us permanently, depriving future generations. This video reflects the spirit of Christmas showing love and hope. How thankful I am that doTerra is a company that is looking to the future. There is a window of light knowing efforts are being made to save the trees and keep them alive for generations to come. It is important our future children have the same health privileges using the oil.
    We need more corporations caring about the earth and the people. What a wonderful company doTerra is to ensure people are being paid fairly and helping them with making a living for many generations to come. We need more companies respecting what God has provided to us on this earth.

  19. Nicole Gaudioso

    I’ve been using Doterra essential oils for a very long time, and a few things I love
    About this company and its amazing products they help build and support other countries. Frankincense I know is one of the oils the wise men brought Jesus Christ when he was born.
    Christmas is not only of the most important days in Christian history, it’s a day that reminds us to give.
    As a mom of 4, I’ve had good years and I have had bad years. When I was in need I was blessed by the graciousness’ of the community. No amount of money will ever change my heart. I always give back what I can to those who need the most. The video brought tears to my eyes, it was truly inspirational.

  20. It is nice to see that DoTERRA went in to teach them about harvesting, that they are giving them the fair pay that they deserve.
    Now they have schools and medical service centers thanks to DoTERRA
    And they also gave them warehouses. DoTERRA has definitely change their lives for the better.
    DoTERRA did not take advantage like other people did in the past, but rather stepped in to help them

  21. Jenny Aitchison

    I love the culture of this company so much! This is so beautiful how they stepped in and helped these harvesters finally get a fair wage for their resin. DoTERRA will definitely reap a great harvest from sowing this kind of seed into these underprivileged communities.

  22. I loved how they created an organized organization to help everybody especially the farmers and the women It gave them purpose and hope.
    I also loved how they built boarding houses and building a new hospital
    This is what the true Spirit of Christmas is

  23. Being caring, inclusive and considerate are underlying things throughout the entire holiday season. These things are also evident with Doterra as a company

  24. Joanne Allaire

    I loved watching this video again , and every time it’s touching my heart. It’s make me happy that Doterra is always there to help them to have a decent life and good education. These trees are in good hands now by using their new skills and will be pass on from generation to generation. Doterra gave them the hope, love and abundance in their heart, this is the mean of Christmas spirit to me. For these peoples God gave them frankincense as the greatest gift of the earth!

  25. As I watched this video, i was struck by the “peace” that it portrayed. In an area of the world that so often is thought of in termoil with famine and civil unrest, the women sorting the resin did so, peacefully.
    I could only imagine the fragrance of that room… Heavenly.
    As with most things of value, they come with hard work. The people of Somaliland are being valued by DoTerra, both in providing a fair wage, and caring for the generations to come in a sustainable way. The educational and medical care doTerra is giving to the community provides the people of that region with the knowledge they are truly being cared for. It is giving back in the purest of forms.

    1. Christ came to give the hopeless hope and this is also seen in this video….
      This people had no hope and were given hope. Not only just to take from them but to give back.
      DoTerra is a company that is so good in giving back…. Educating the people to educate there children again as this goes from generation to generation.

      The hospital that was built really touched my heart…. This is spreading love and what Christmas is for me.

  26. Irina Artemenko

    .. Somaliland – people are having hard and poor life. There is in no any other industry, instead of harvesting Frankincense for a living. They were paid so little as no one invested in them so they could do much better and earn more money… Thanks God for doTerra! As Emily Wright said: “We had to give them a seed of hope… and it is amazing to see what changes are happening just in a few years.”
    Now thousand women have work, they are fairly paid and they have a chance to educate their children. doTerra Healing Hand Foundation funded the construction of 2 boarding school for both boy and girls aged 7 to 12. They are 1st schools of their kind!
    …Seed of hope… It is like when Jesus Christ was born we had a “Seed of Hope” to be saved and having eternal life!
    … What else impressed me… David Stirling said: “We feel very responsible to make sure that we maintain sustainability and doing in a way that is gonna be long term beneficial for the People and for Trees.”

  27. Louise Gaudreau

    Wow! all that hard work for pennies, so unfair. It really saddens me and it’s unfortunate that they were taken advantage of. How beautiful, Doterra has changed their lives forever. This is very comforting to know that the people of Somaliland are paid and respected for their hard work …keep giving Doterra??

    1. Joanne Allaire

      So true ! I love the transparency of Doterra and is big heart ❤ Frankincense is one of my favorite oil. I am glad to see that these trees are been taking care now from generations to generations!

  28. I am ALWAYS so inspired by this video and the work doTERRA are doing with the farmers in Somaliland! The building of the Sanaag hospital has been a huge blessing.

  29. I love how doTERRA helps people all around the world! It is inspiring and especially now on Christmas we should all consider doing something good and come together ?

  30. The Sanaag region and its hard living conditions makes me think of how hard it must have been to travel to Bethlehem. The journey that Mary and Joseph went through and the journey that the people of Somali land go through every day. There is hope for the people of Somali Land through the Frankincense production. And Jesus is the hope of the world. The heart of Jesus is found in the love that the people off Sanaag have for there Frankincense trees aswell in the heart of Doterra that invest in the people and lives of those who farm and produce the Frankincense oil.

  31. Maritha Erasmus

    When I was introduced to do Terra that was the 1st thing that stand out for me. The way they reach out to the community on both sides off the bottle. The farmer that supply them the product that we on the other side are benefit from using it.
    Frankincense I see also as 1 of the most precious oils given at Jesus’s birth and is it so special that do Terra give it FREE over this time of period and this is a symbol for me that God gave Jesus to us FREE to live among us.
    This video always bring tears but on the other hand some joy because Somaliland stand out because of this special product Frankincense, and again God made sure that this country and its people is seen & looked after by having something we all want & I am glad that do Terra makes sure that it happens in the correct and fare way.
    Also standing out is the effort and education that do Terra put into these community’s to grow and build a long term future for themselves and there family’s.
    I am proud to be part of this journey building community’s and giving people an opportunity for a better life.

  32. I love how these humble ,poor people are the harvesters of the king of oils. How it enriches their lives. I learned this week that if these trees are planted out of their natural habitat of struggle and drought, that they don’t really produce resin. They are created for this area.

  33. The part that stood out for me from watching the video was how doTERRA gave them a seed of hope and brought them together, considered their needs (schooling, medicine, etc) and taught them sustainability practices. Jesus is our Hope and Seeds of hope change our circumstances and point us to the giver of Hope!

  34. Knowing more about how Frankincense is harvested and the help doTERRA has been able to give to this harvesting community is amazing. It really struck me to think that previously they were only getting .8$ per kilo is so below poverty. What a blessing to go straight to the source to improve those lives directly. What a light. We are called to be in people’s lives.

  35. This heart of doTERRA is what first drew me… and it’s what keeps me whenever I see something shiny from another oil company, haha. To build for or support a company with a heart of compassion that does things beyond ethically is something I can really get behind with my whole heart. <3

  36. How would we ever have know these peoples existed, the conditions in which they live and the exploitation they have endured. I am continually impressed with the ethics and hearts of compassion at the centre of DoTerra. It feels so good to be part of this story as an end user. Jesus was the saviour, a deliverer. He came to set the captives free. The annoucement of His birth was a message of good news for all people. This story is a story of good news coming, of the oppressed being set free!

  37. One of the things I love about doterra is how they empower the producers, workers, families , people where the oils are sourced. People that are often is a very poor struggling situation – helping them with more security and stability to provide for their families. Also their involvement in sustainability

  38. I just love the inclusion and celebration of the process from start to finish. Doterra really does show the true spirit of Christmas, every day of the year!

  39. The video was wonderful in showing that that great things come from humble beginnings. As Christ was born in a manger, which signifies that even when a thing may start out humble it can grow into greatness. DoTERRA as a company really displayed that there should be fair dealings in business and that both the buyer and the seller can benefit. The developing of a fair market for frankincense, creating jobs, the building of schools and hospitals gives examples of what companies can do to improve the well being of others and still be profitable.

  40. DōTERRA is such an amazing company.

    Little Mohammed 5th generation after dad, watching as his dad cuts the bark of the trees.

    Such a wonderful video, so thankful being apart of dōTERRA

  41. It’s heart warming to know that doTerra cares for these communities and wants to give them a better life by giving them a fair wage for their product and also by providing them with a school and hospital so that they can learn and be taken care of. It’s a wonderful gift. It’s a great feeling to know when we buy from doterra the money goes to helping those less fortunate than us.

  42. I really enjoyed watching this video.
    Its really wonderful to see how doterra is assisting all these people, giving them employment and security. This really helps these people as they never had these kinds of opportunities before. They were being taken advantage of before doterra.

    Doterra reminds me of that time of the year of when people come together to help each other through the difficult times.

    doTERRA is changing the world. One oil at a time. One farmer at time. One child at a time.

  43. Bonnie McColeman

    Beautiful, I love the heart of dōTERRA in providing hope and encouragement to the families. Integrity in a world filled with greed, stands out to me and I feel proud to be a part of the dōTERRA family ?

  44. Wow! Another powerful video. This is so nice to see that Doterra looks at the big picture and helps out the communities with schooling and health care while also helping protect the frankincense resources.

  45. Great video. Yes Fair Trade is very important for the harvesters and for us as consumers to support. Wether it be essential oils, coffee, chocolate or any other purchases we make. Knowing where our products and food comes from and choosing who we buy from can make the difference for the growers, harvesters and the planet. I choose Doterra for its ethical and fair trade practices. Thank you for sharing loved all of it.

  46. Melissa Kottelenberg

    I love that one of doTERRA’s goals is long term sustainability! And that they don’t just buy farms, they invest in farmers.

  47. Christ was born to us as YHWH’s greatest gift to mankind.
    doTERRA is giving back to communities that harvest the Frankincense resin by ensuring that they are properly paid, poverty is reduced by employing women and harvesters are now being treated fairly.

    In the beginning of the Bible, in Genesis, YHWH already instructed Adam and Eve to take care of the earth, its’ animals and plants. As time went on, people became more interested in gaining as much money as possible with little to no regard for the impact it had on the environment (diminishing forests is a sad example of this). In direct contrast, doTERRA does their best to ensure that Frankincense resin is harvested without the trees (and environment) being ruined in the process. Sustainable sourcing goes hand-in-hand with our God-given instruction to look after our environment.

    Jesus was born to give us a second chance on spending an eternity with YHWH… doTERRA also came in to give families of Somaliland a second chance on life with not only providing an income to families, but to also the building of schools to better education, a health care centre and a hospital. My prayer is that the people of Somaliland will also be opened to the good news of YHWH.

  48. Elizabeth Larkin

    8 cents a kilo for the harvesters, with what frankincense goes for on the open market? Thank heaven for a group like the owners of doTERRA who have instilled into this business their need and goal to give back to and support the communities of growers and harvesters so they will not continue to be cheated.

  49. Arlete Cevada-Marcos

    Frankincense is my absolute favourite oil and I love the ethical and loving way that dōTerra harvests it and supports the community in Somaliland. The Bible teaches us that it is more blessed to give than to receive… dōTerra is blessing the community there before it receives the precious frankincense to share with the world. Without this initial giving and investment in the people, there would be no ethical receiving of this gift of God. I feel very grateful and blessed to work with a company with such a big heart! ❤️

Frankincense I see also as 1 of the most precious oils given at Jesus's birth and is it so special that do Terra give it FREE over this time of period and this is a symbol for me that God gave Jesus to us FREE to live among us. This video always bring tears but on the other hand some joy because Somaliland stand out because of this special product Frankincense, and again God made sure that this country and its people is seen & looked after by having something we all want & I am glad that do Terra makes sure that it happens in the correct and fare way. Also standing out is the effort and education that do Terra put into these community's to grow and build a long term future for themselves and there family's. I am proud to be part of this journey building community's and giving people an opportunity for a better life.
