We are Shantistar

About John & Noel

John met his life partner and wellness collaborator Noel in 1994, and they embarked on a global discovery of mindfulness, sound therapy, essential oils and raw chocolate. Together they are building a global network empowered by holistic understanding and choices.

The flower of life

The Flower of Life is a visual representation of the connection of life that flows through all sentient beings.

This symbol, which dates back to ancient Egypt, shows us that we are all connected and that we support each other in every step through life. Similar to how one petal of the flower becomes a petal of the next flower, when we reach out and connect, we allow the greatest flow of energy, support, and love! For this reason, we have chosen The Flower of Life as our logo. It resonates with the interconnected way we live our lives and support our dōTERRA Team.

Our passions

Here at Shantistar, we have a passion for superfoods, espresso martinis, technology, natural health solutions and essential oils. As world travelers, meditators and sharers of love, we strongly believe life balance is the key to maintaining a state of happiness and wellbeing. We aim to inspire others with our holistic approach to life; helping them to discover the extensive benefits of pure essential oils and natural products.

Our lifestyle

Working with dōTERRA affords us the lifestyle of our dreams. We spend 6 months of the year in Australia, and the other 6 months in Italy, from where we help people on a global scale.

Whether you’re seeking a natural alternative to managing your health or are looking to create financial freedom, our supportive and nurturing team are here to help people.

Humanitarian Work

Healing Hands

In 2017, as a part of the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, a group of dōTERRA Wellness Advocates travelled to Rasnalu, Nepal. Working with the locals, our Australian Advocates assisted in the construction of a school and community centre which is central to livelihood of the 7,000 people living in the Rasnalu community. The earthquake resistant school provides a safe place where children can learn with access to education materials. The infrastructure also acts as a community hub, where the community can access medical supplies in the event of a natural disaster, which is not uncommon in this region.

Using dōTERRA essential oils in Australia supports local communities all over the globe, many of which are similar to those living in Rasnalu, Nepal. At Shantistar, we are proud to know dōTERRA essential oils provide a vital source of income for farmers in rural communities. We know that this income supports parents and allows more children to remain in school, which can break the cycle of poverty and improve prospects for hundreds of families worldwide.

The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is proud to support international not for profit Days For Girls.

Days for Girls

Days For Girls works to provide women and girls worldwide with access to sustainable and reusable feminine hygiene solutions. Whilst dōTERRA employees and Wellness Advocates regularly assemble hygiene kits for Days For Girls, John and Noel from Shantistar actually travelled to Nepal to deliver the kits assembled by local dōTERRA teams. Seeing the real difference education and sustainable hygiene solutions can make for women was eye opening. Along with the kits, women are educated to show how they can be agents of social change. They are taught that they have value and self-worth, and have the potential to break the cycle of poverty. The aim is for all women to have access to sustainable hygiene solutions and health education by 2022, and Shantistar is proud to support Days For Girls on this mission, through dōTERRA essential oils Australia.
