The Relational Reporter: doTERRA introduces mistleTOE
“Love will literally be in the air this Christmas season!” – Haven Leehost, doTERRA spokesperson
Within seconds of the announcement, orders began pouring in from mothers around the globe, anxious to have their homes covered in time for the arrival of their young adult children during the holidays.
“I’ve tried everything from setting up blind dates, to prayer and fasting, to blind prayer and fasting. I’ve even paid for their online dating accounts,” confessed Anne Noying. “But now the essential oils which have given me peace, clarity, and visions of grandeur, can now give me the grand kids I’ve been waiting for.”
Not everyone expressed excitement about the prospect of mistletoe diffusing in every room of their home this Christmas, particularly a protest group known as Singles Tired Of Parents Interfering (STOP It).
“It was bad enough having to answer the same questions over and over again, followed by suggestions of what we should be doing to find a spouse and speculations as to what we’re doing wrong,” raged STOP It protester, Chastity Withnoend. “Now every breath we take will be a reminder of our singleness.”
“Not true,” says doTERRA essential oil developer, Jen Entonic, “Mistletoe has no odor, so those who fall under it’s spell won’t even know what hit them!” However, Entonic did warn that mistletoe is poisonous when ingested causing symptoms ranging from drowsiness and blurred vision to vomiting and even seizures.
“But isn’t that just like falling in love?” countered one of many singles who welcomed doTERRA’s announcement.
“Without blurred vision, dizziness, and freezing up, how could you know you had finally met ‘the one’?” – Faith Enromance
Appropriately, doTERRA has branded it’s mistletoe formula, “The One,” and offers it as a lotion, hair gel, body wash, bath soap, beard oil, and lip balm.

Can You Know when You’ve Found “The One”?
If you can’t depend on essential oils or other mistletoe magic, how can you know God’s will for your dating life? We talk about just that in this most watched episode of LoveEd.
It’s NOT for couples, but for any wise individual who thinks they might want to get married sometime before they die. And would like to learn how to better build healthy relationships in the meantime.
Check out all three study guides in our store. You can walk through them on your own, but it’s more fun with friends (that and it kinda makes sense to grow in relational success in actual relationships with others), so consider putting together an FMU LoveEd small group study.
Even better? And ask a rock star married couple you respect to lead it!
