Serving Globally from Wilmington, NC


An Essential Life Is A Life That Matters


Grab a coffee (or a glass of wine!) and follow us (and our fun and foibles) in our blog. We blog and vlog about everything – family, food, health, fishing, home, places we go and people we meet. 

Watch & Read

After using assorted brands of essential oils for 25+ years, we tried dōTERRA. After exclaiming, “OH! I can FEEL that!” we began to take charge of our health and help others do the same.

Get Oils

You can have a lucrative business of your own, helping people to take charge of their health. Choose to earn side money or replacement income with a low investment & full training.

Kay & Ken Sharpe

We are passionate lovers of Jesus, people, and essential oils. We dedicate our lives to helping others live the essential life. Although based in Wilmington, NC, we travel extensively to help our team train and equip people worldwide. We have three children and (so far) five grandchildren. We’re also foodies and have fun starting (and sometimes finishing) craft and home projects. In our spare time, we can be found fishing on a beach somewhere (Except in December, when Ken spends his time Santa Clausing all over North Carolina).

We wouldn’t be anywhere without the amazing leaders, team members, and customers that we get to work with every single day! We’d love to have

When your spirit is properly aligned with Spirit, there is a resulting synergy that flows through your soul and body and into all of the world. 

Get Back On Track

Caring for your soul is paramount. Everything in the world conspires to bring you down – it’s up to you to practice good self-care and bring yourself UP. 

Love Yourself!

Health truly is wealth. A healthy body is one that is able to adapt and excel in all circumstances. We were created to look, feel, and be great! Don’t settle for less.

Healthy Body

Whether it’s spouse and children, extended family, friendships, work, worship, or charity, relationships are a foundational part of an essential life.
