The cost is $35 for the first year and $25 for renewals (optional) and include a free oil of peppermint ($27.33 value). If you choose one of the starter kits, the 1st year membership fee is waived! Choose wholesale account if you just wish to purchase oils for yourself or choose Wellness Advocate account if you wish to share the oils and other doTERRA products with friends and family with the opportunity to get free products and/or earn income. The cost is the same for both accounts.
