Why doTERRA?

Why I love using and advocating doTERRA essential oils...

CPTG:  Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade

To ensure purity, potency and consistency, and for transparent accountability, doTERRA created an internal standard, verified by third party labs.  It's called CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade.

Through multiple testings in 3 phases, the CPTG process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in the oils.  The oils that fail the testing are simply rejected.  There is no secondary processing for removing foreign matter.  Other than the careful distillation of the oils from the plant material, no other processing takes place.  For explanation of each testing described below, click here.

Reviving Time-Honored Ancient Understanding...  Investing in Scientific Research & Innovation...

The ancients recognized the plant's ability to influence human state and support healing.  The use of plants and their extracts for rituals, religious practices, beautifying purposes, and medicinal uses has been around for thousands of years.  Essential oils are highly concentrated plant compounds possessing their most potent medicinal, therapeutic and beautifying qualities.  Each drop of essential oil captures the plant's immunity and vitality.  And more subtly, it is the life force or the soul of the plant. 

 

In recent years, essential oils have moved out of obscurity to become a topic of interest in modern scientific research.  And doTERRA is at the forefront of this commitment with a strong team of in-house scientists, accomplished scientific and medical advisors, and partnering with selected academic, industry and medical institutions.

Natural... Effective... Safe... Affordable...

Did you know that essential oils are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs?  Yes... 1 drop of peppermint oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea.  That one amber bottle will go a long way, making essential oils very affordable, pennies per drop.  But I must emphasize, again, that not all essential oil are created equal.  Some peppermint oils may not even be food grade, let alone CPTG, so better not be ingesting those.  In addition to purity, the delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits and potency (aka effective).   Purity, efficacy and safety are the heart of doTERRA's success.

Sourcing Where Plants Thrive Most...

Over 100 doTERRA essential oils are sourced from more than 40 countries.  Why does doTERRA span the globe to source their oils?  Why not just have a large farm in one place? The answer is really integral and simple.  doTERRA seeks out plants from areas where they are either indigenously grown (natural habitat), or best thriving due to soil conditions and sustainability practices.  Sourcing the oils where plants thrive due to prime soil conditions has a major impact on the oil's composition, which in turn determines its potency and efficacy.  Add to that the careful attention to harvesting at the perfect time and distilling at the optimal temperature and for ideal amount of time - what you get is exceptional quality!

Co-Impact Sourcing...

These 40+ countries have some of the best raw material for oils, and doTERRA has the largest market in the world for them.  Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships.  doTERRA commits to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers - by creating sustainable jobs, providing reliable fair wages, and assisting with grower/harvester cooperatives to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.  In return, doTERRA can offer consistent and exceptional quality oils to its users.  Users participate in the reciprocity when choosing oils sourced not only for superior quality, but with sustainability and giving back in mind - contributing to providing jobs globally, changing many lives, and rebuilding communities in underdeveloped nations that make up more than half of the 40+ countries sourcing for doTERRA.  That is worthy of my dollar! 

Healing Hands Foundation...

Healing Hands is doTERRA's non-profit foundation whose overall mission is to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant.”  

Through partnerships and on its own, Healing Hands have funded and provided resources to projects that changed many lives around the globe.  Just to name a few - building and sponsoring medical clinics, working with communities to install clean water systems, and providing education to girls and women on women's health and sustainable feminine hygiene.  Healing Hands also aids and supports in times of extreme crisis and natural disasters.  

doTERRA provides all overhead and administrative costs to ensure 100% of all donations go directly to those in need.  There are a variety of ways to contribute.  All proceeds of selected few products go to the Healing Hands Foundation.  Every customer has the option to donate a $1 when purchasing.  Or you can go right here to donate
