What are Essential Oils?
Essential Oils are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in complex essential oil blends depending on user experience and desired benefit.
doTERRA means “gift of the earth” and is producing the highest quality essential oils on the planet, bringing science & education to the forefront of natural and preventative healthcare.
When plants are grown in optimal soil, temperature, and climate, they produce a higher quality of potency in the essential oil.To maintain this level of potency, doTERRA networks with experienced farmers around the world that intimately know how to grow plants in their native environment. This process is called sourcing. The sourcing process ensures that plants are cared for and harvested at the proper stage by growers who have generations of harvesting knowledge.
With over 100 essential oils in its product line, doTERRA sources oils from over 40 countries —more than half of which could be considered developing countries. To ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, doTERRA has introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing.
In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils doTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production.
The more pure the essential oil, the more powerful the results. Many essential oils available to purchase are not pure. Often, they contain fillers or other elements that dilute and alter the purity, thus diminishing the healthful qualities of the oil. In order to guarantee that the oils you use are pure, doTERRA and a team of highly skilled professionals formulated a successful testing procedure that qualifies doTERRA oils as uniquely pure and free of contaminants.
This quality protocol is called CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade.®
During the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade process, each batch of oils is subjected to extensive and rigorous testing that ensures the purity, potency, and consistency of the essential oils. Because quality oils can empower individuals and families, doTERRA makes it their priority to provide you with the purest and most effective oils possible. With each doTERRA product, you can be confident that you're receiving the highest quality essential oils. Our effective standard testing methods are created with you & your loved ones in mind.
Healing Hands Foundation
In addition to sharing essential oils with the world, doTERRA aspired to serve people and communities with the resources they had. Initially, this meant donating to charities, fundraisers, and community projects, but it eventually grew to be much more.
