About Us


John and Valarie Bush

We were introduced to doTerra Essential Oils early in 2017 as a therapeutic solution for a physical issue that doctors had given up on.

We were amazed at the results and began to explore. We found that the use of plant-based therapies and home uses are ancient, and in fact, were the only solutions available before modern chemistry and pharmacy. We were introduced to many health and wellness applications using doTerra Essential Oils, and decided to form our business, Choose Wellness Now.  Our Mission is to raise awareness and teach about the use of these natural, plant-based 100% pure products. We are proud to represent doTerra Essential Oils.

John has enjoyed a varied career path.  Holding an MBA, he has worked in positions of financial and general management. He has been a business consultant and coach and was owner and president of a small business in the San Franciso Bay Area.
