Learn the science behind dōTERRA essential oils!



In 2008 a group of business and healthcare professionals began a movement to bring the usefulness and effectiveness of essential oils to a mainstream audience.  dōTERRA, Latin for gift of the earth, is the fruit of their efforts.  It is quickly becoming the biggest name in essential oils, as well as an alternative medical solution for families all over the world.

Essential oils are a commodity product, meaning that they can be purchased from many different brands and vendors; but dōTERRA was built on the premise that the user would be able to smell, feel, and experience the difference.  Due to the great reputation of the dōTERRA executive team, they have been able to harvest their essential oils in their best locations.  For example, the lavender used for the oil is grown in the high altitudes of France, and the Frankincense is sourced all the way from Oman.  This careful sourcing process allows dōTERRA to keep extremely high standards for their crops and their essential oils.

These high standards have lead to the creation of an internal quality testing process done by dōTERRA, oils that pass this process are marked with doTERRA’s CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® stamp. When speaking of this standard, dōTERRA has said, “The CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® mark represents dōTERRA’s own internal standards for sourcing and testing pure aromatic botanical extracts using independent laboratory analysis. The dōTERRA brand and registered CPTG mark represent dōTERRA’s guarantee of pure essential oil extracts that meet high standards for both purity and material composition and for accurate product labeling.”

One would be greatly challenged to find a business with better leadership, a better product, and better ethics than dōTERRA has brought to the alternative medical community.

The have gone from Bolivia to Haiti to Ghana and more, changing the world one drop at a time. They went to Bolivia and trained community members in how to use essential oils to improve the health of others. Then they went to Haiti where they brought clean water to communities that did not have it. They brought furniture to schools, like desks for the students and made a warehouse where community members could store tools and harvested vetiver roots. When they went to Accra, Ghana where they funded the Deseret Hospital to purchase much needed medical supplies and equipment. Also in Accra they embarked on a mission to provide a medical clinic, kindergarten school, and junior high school to the area.
