Who are you?

Hello! It's lovely to meet you! Here's what we know about you! You deeply, deeply care about the health and wellbeing of your family. With a healthy pinch of skepticism, you have heard on the grapevine about essential oils working for others and are curious as to what they are about. Your previous experience with things labelled 'natural' hasn't always been all that crash-hot and as a busy being, your time is your most precious commodity, so you're wary of unnecessary spending of something you don't have a lot of time to learn about.

But, if you knew they actually worked, you'd love the idea of a more natural and more cost-effective approach to health, you love the idea of having powerful tools available in the home 24/7 and in your gut, there is this inkling and curiosity. Whilst these oils may not be for you, you're open to learning some basic skills.

Who am we kidding? That was each of us!! But if any of the above sounds like you too, then you will fit seamlessly into our growing community of conscious health-seekers. Whether you prefer learning online or face to face, we have stacks of ways to help you keep learning without the overwhelm.

More about us:

Hi I'm Alison Bartolo, a Diamond Leader in doTERRA, founder and owner of Healthy Munchkins, a stay-at-home Mum and a passionate advocate for families having CHOICES in their home.

Alison Bartolo

Four years ago, as a family, we had a powerful experience using essential oils in our home. It was a moment that woke myself and my husband up to the power that nature can have. Since that time, we have compounded our experiences and are simply astounded with their impact not only for supporting our body systems but for detoxing our home of toxic chemicals, using in our food and supporting our emotional wellbeing.

We use essential oils in our home in multiple ways every day for ourselves and our three children. We love that doTERRA has given us the freedom to educate other everyday families to do the same. Whether it's help with an ongoing issue in the home or a full lifestyle revamp, we are committed to educating our expanding wellness community.

Hello!! I’m Meg Bell from Ripple Effect Essential Oils.

Meg Bell

I am a working mumma to three gorgeous and unique little boys who are my inspiration in sharing the incredible ways that essential oils can support you and your family with health and wellness. I was introduced to doTERRA through a trusted friend when I brought my third baby home from hospital. Sleep was a distant memory and my whole family was struggling with the change to our family dynamic. Through the use of these oils I was able to help support myself and my family though emotional and physical challenges and regain our sense of harmony and contentment. I have seen first-hand the positive impact these oils have had on me, my family and in our home. Now, my aim is to share the benefits these oils can bring in the hope that you may experience the same peace, empowerment and joy that I do. I love seeing and hearing from people as they realise how incredibly safe, affordable and effective these gifts from nature are. I am looking forward to supporting you as you welcome essential oils in to your daily life.

Hi, I'm Vicki Ryan, also known for The Ryan Tribe - Essential Oils.

Vicki Ryan

I am a Premier Leader with doTERRA, and a busy mum to 3 amazing little people. Almost 2 years ago, I stumbled upon these bottles of joy. My husband Daniel and I couldn't believe the immediate impact they had on our family. I wanted, no, I needed to share these with as many families as possible. I love running oil workshops and sharing the oils, 1 drop, 1 person, 1 household at a time.


"I thoroughly enjoyed your workshop! Your delivery style is very relatable, you take time to involve everyone and seek feedback so the experience for everyone is broad and well-rounded. Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to make your sessions so enjoyable" - Jo D, Brisbane

"Each time I see Alison present I get more excited about using my oils. You can hear the passion in her voice. She is extremely knowledgeable, approachable and she genuinely cares for your health and how she and these oils can benefit you. And I know if I have any concerns or questions she will be available to me" - Jess H, Brisbane

"Alison’s classes are always very well presented and the materials provided become a valuable resource. Alison and her family are a shining example of the quality of life that can be achieved by using certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils" - Mike S, Brisbane

"Alison is a truly engaging, passionate speaker and one of a kind woman. She has such a warm heart and a kind and sensitive nature and takes time to help and nurture everyone. Her events are so worth attending as she speaks with absolute clarity and conviction and shares such a powerful and transformative message with people that is also relatable and easy to understand. As someone that has worked with Alison it is an absolute honour to watch her prosper and grow and extend a hand to others to support them on their journey so they may rise with her. If you get the opportunity to attend a workshop with Alison, see her speak at an event, purchase essential oils from her or take the plunge and build an ethical and sustainable business alongside her it will be the best decision you ever make. Everyone who has contact with Alison has a warmer, richer life experience because of the genuine, compassionate, passionate and powerful person she is. I can’t recommend her highly enough" - Jessie Reimers, Gold Coast

"Ever since your workshop I attended on Thursday, I have been meaning to send you a message to thank you ever so much! I honestly had a fantastic night and feel like I learnt so much that will be a life changer for me and my three gorgeous mini humans. I have been wanting to change to more natural solutions in all facets of our life for such a long time and now armed with the knowledge and wisdom you imparted on Thursday night I finally feel ready to finally get started. Baby steps but steps I have been longing to make for such a long time, steps my soul has been craving, so I just wanted to say a massive thank you! I am also hoping to make it to as many of your amazing workshops as I can in the future. Thank you for sharing your passion so freely. You truly are changing lives for the better. Your passion for these positive life changes is so infectious! Thanks again Alison. I look forward to meeting with you again soon" - Mel M, Brisbane


Are children allowed at events?

We love kids and have designed our business to work around their needs. However, we do find that at these educational sessions, guests are less distracted when children are not in attendance. If possible, we recommend scheduling some 'me time' and getting as much out of the session as possible. If you aren't able to organise someone to look after your little ones, please shoot us a message and we'll problem solve with you! Babies not yet on the move, although distracting due to their cuteness, are welcomed!

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Banyo Library backs on to Banyo rail station with direct links to the city. There is a carpark behind the library

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email and we will do our best to help you!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, just show us your ticket on your phone on arrival!
