Want to know where to get doTERRA Images for Social Media? One of the most daunting things I encountered when I first started selling doTERRA online five years ago was wondering where I could get doTERRA images for social media. Back then, about all there was from doTERRA were stock photos of just the bottles and that was it.

Anything else you want you had to make yourself. Luckily, things have come a long way since then. doTERRA corporate has tons of free images available to use, but they actually don’t have most of them in their official Social Media Assets section linked to down below.
However, once you are approved to become a doTERRA certified site, you are welcome to use any doTERRA brand images – and that opens up a lot more free images directly from doTERRA. I mean, just doTERRA’s Instagram pages alone have tons of beautiful images that will give you tons of free content.
Combine that with all the other free and paid resources I have listed below and you will have a nearly limitless supply of doTERRA images for social media.
Free Graphics and Content
Official doTERRA Social Media Assets– Tip – to save the images right click on the image you like and choose “save image as” and choose where you want to save it on your computer.
Product PowerPoint slides. If you want to focus on any oil in particular during a class, we have begun a database of slides that will eventually cover each essential oil. Also found on doterra.com, each slide beautifully displays the essential oils with both a photograph and compliant information on its use.
doTERRA Daily Drops of Wisdom Emails (you get these weekly emails from doTERRA after your blog is approved as compliant and has the seal)
doTERRA Instagram and doTERRA Spa Instagram – You are totally allowed to use any of their images and they have some beautifully styled images with compliant language. It’s like free stock photography! Tip – you can’t right click and choose “save image as” like you normally can on images when you are on Instagram. You will need to clip the image. On a Mac do command-shift-4 or on a PC use a snipping tool.
doTERRA Pinterest – They basically have the same images and compliant language as Facebook, but it’s so much easier to sort through. Hours and hours of free content, especially diffuser blends and essential oil uses!
doTERRA Blog – Lots of graphics and recipes that you could use as a starting point to create your own DIY’s for your own blog or you could link to their blog or share their content cause Facebook and Pinterest love you to share other’s content.
doTERRA Empowered Life Series – Really good presentations on specific subjects you could summarize and write blog posts about and embed the videos.
Essential Wellness Education Presentations – So good!
Pixabay— Posting on social media is awesome, but do NOT just go grab a pretty picture from Google and use it. You’ll be violating so many copyright laws. The best option is to head on over to Pixabay for FREE stock images to make your social media look pretty and get all that awesome information you have in your head out to your followers.
Creating Graphics Yourself
All the resources listed above are great and all, but anything you use above will be the same as someone else. Guaranteed. You won’t stand out from the crowd. So what do you do if you want to stand out from the crowd? Either use one or some of the stock photos listed above or take your own photos and then edit them in PicMonkey, Canva, Photoshop or your favorite photo editing software.
Not sure how to do all that? Here is a little guidance to get you started in the right direction.
Take Your Own Photos
As you may already know, several of my other blogs are food blogs. Recipes do very well on Pinterest and social media and can be a really good way to introduce people to doTERRA without being pushy. I learned how to take photos of food from this eBook from Recipe Tin Eats.
I highly recommend it and I recommend it even if you don’t plan to take photos of food. Why? Because essential oils and food shots are very similar. You don’t just want to have shots of a doTERRA bottle sitting on your kitchen counter and that’s it.
This eBook will teach you so much about lighting, angles, props, shadow and editing and will apply to anything you are trying to photograph that is small and doesn’t move and is about the size of food – so essential oils totally fit in this category. You will be so proud of the images you take with a DSLR in manual mode after reading this eBook!
Once you have a pretty picture (either one you found on Pixabay or one you took yourself) the next step is to edit it. You could add your watermark, text or size it for various social media. PicMonkey allows you to do all of that and more, using your own fonts that you’ve downloaded from the internet or any of theirs. By upgrading to Royale, you open up so many more options to make your social media truly “you!” Here’s a tutorial from a fellow doTERRA expert on how to make social media images yourself using either PicMonkey or Canva.
