⚈ Why dōTERRA
What makes the dōTERRA brand of oils unique and best in the world?
I am the utmost pickiest when it comes to family so I stand behind what I use and recommend to all of you!
Here are a few TOP reasons why myself and many others align and partner with this incredible company:
PURITY + TESTING
Pure, high quality, optimally-sourced Oils are at the heart of doTERRA’s success.
For transparent accountability, dōTERRA’s created a standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG), verified by respected third party labs.
After harvesting, each batch is thoroughly tested inhouse by dōTERRA’s state-of-the-art lab with advanced testing methods to verify the purity and potency of its essential oils.
When they pass these tests they are then sent off to a 3rd party independent lab for testing.
This standard is real, based on stringent testing throughout the entire process from the monitoring of soil quality to testing for chemicals and adulteration in EVERY liter of Oil. Then the lab rules out any presence of fungus, mold, pesticides, extenders and any other contaminants.
This protocol ensures potency, purity, and consistency batch to batch…. so that when we use them at home to make sure they are going to do what we need them to do.
VERY important and that is where most companies make their mistake in the distillation process trying to save a few pennies so that may distill with chemical solvents, or dilute it with a carrier —when you’re using dōTERRA — you’re getting 100% pure oils.
The oils sourced and harvested around the world where the plants grow & thrive the best. The growing conditions are perfect: the soil, climate, environment etc. You can grow lavender in Canada but it will not even be close to the therapeutic value and chemical constituents of the lavender grown in Bulgaria where dōTERRA sources from.
dōTERRA sources their oils from over 40 countries —more than half of which could be considered developing countries. they team with the local farmers there, many whose families have been growing and harvesting that plant for generations. Not to buy them out, but to form co-operatives, teach them improved growing, harvesting and distilling methods, and drastically changing their quality of life and sustainability of the plants.
To ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically with their Co-impact sourcing initiative…..which seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. dōTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices.
Another layer of this is that dōTERRA is cultivating the land in a sustainable way. Teaching the growers how to harvest to get the BEST therapeutic values. Also as a partnership, this eliminates the middleman. A trust is formed + partnership means that the farms deal exclusively with dōTERRA.
As we enjoy and share dōTERRA, we are providing thousands of jobs globally, changing families and blessing communities.
NON PROFIT // HEALING HANDS FOUNDATION
The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation was created in June 2012 as an official non-profit organisation.
The foundation is one of the ways dōTERRA reaches out and serves communities in need.
dōTERRA sourced oils from 45 different countries all over the world in the last year alone and where they could, helped those countries by re-building, education or through supplying them with the means to have what we consider to be basic human rights, like wells for clean water systems and roofs over their heads.
Also building and funding health clinics, schools (where girls are given the opportunity to attend), Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R. Rescue) Rescue exists to rescue children from sex trafficking. Projects like Girls For Days, offers support, educates both girls and women to empower feminine health, providing sustainable feminine hygiene and care. Having served over one million girls and women to date, Days for Girls affords these girls and women dignity and supplies in order to function in society during their cycle so they aren’t missing chances to learn and grow out of poverty.
Some of the many other projects::
Earthquake relief in Nepal and Guatemala, Mobile health clinics in Madagascar, Clean water projects in Kenya, Youth centres in Bulgaria, Disaster relief / Emergency Relief Hygiene Kits , Meals for children in Bulgaria, and miro- loans which provide credit to small businesses who do not otherwise have the ability to obtain financing. Helping people in developing countries lift themselves out of extreme poverty by giving them a hand up – not a hand out.
SOURCE TO YOU
This site right here is why I have partnered with dōTERRA because they have the utmost integrity & transparency. sourcetoyou.com the site that EVERY other essential oil brand does NOT have….and is what other EO companies NEVER wanted to launch.
This independent, verified third party lab brings transparency to what exactly goes into that bottle (GC/MS test results from an independent, verified third party lab) and it will bring attention to a lot of other brands out there.
You can even enter your unique Quality ID to view GC/MS test results from an independent, verified third party lab.
This site – you can scan your bottle of oil: and it will tell you a GCMS report ….which shows that peppermint has the best constituency so that its going to do what you want it to do!
For eg: Other oils- (with added synthetics to make it smell like an oil, won’t do what it should do).
This website is SO important.
Transparency + quality

THE LARGEST ESSENTIAL OIL COMPANY IN THE WORLD
The purest, most tested, most recognised oil in the world. A useable, in high demand product. There is no wonder that there is a rapidly growing growth with over 7 million people using the oils in the last 10 years…..and dōTERRA is only getting started. There is less than 2% of the world’s population using the oil –so much room to grow.
THE MARKETING MODEL
Because people need to be educated on essential oils. dōTERRA realises that the best pathway to get their oils out into the world is through educators, those sharing experiences and offering ongoing support. The oils support groups, the resources, the ‘anytime’ guidance that we offer. You would never get this from a buying an oil at a shop.
Where big corporates invest their billions of marketing dollars into advertising, sponsorships, ambassadorships and other marketing, market through word of mouth sales or direct sales, from their existing loyal customers (that’s me by the way!).
They invest their marketing dollars into paying us a small commission each time someone purchases through us, delivering that money directly into the pockets of us small business owners world wide.
EDUCATION + COMMUNITY
You are provided with endless educational opportunities to learn more about essential oils, how and why they work, and how to use them more effectively. Their focus is not just on selling a product but on providing the education necessary to use their product correctly.
>On dōTERRAs site, you’ll find hundreds of hours of free education, guidance, recipes and other support for both oil users and those building businesses. Resources are provided, and you’ll also find our team’s online Oils Support Community super useful. We have years of compiled information and inspiration for your learning.
INTERGRITY + FOUNDING EXECUTIVES
The dōTERRA executive comes from a diverse background with years of experience in different industries. In 2008, they started this company from the ground up and have done everything ethically and honestly. Their mission is to create the highest quality of essentials in the world (that is when dōTERRA + CPTG was born), to create as many debt free homes, create financial freedom, and to create good in the world.
The owners personally funded the start-up and own 100% of the company, meaning that there are no outside investors (which means no one giving orders or having control over their vision).
The founders ‘practice what they preach’ and stand 100% behind these products as they trust them with their own families (this is very important to me). They must be doing something right because DōTERRA is now THE largest oil company in the world, remains debt-free and the highest retention in any other company with the same structure.
They really care about their employees and Wellness Advocates and truly want to see us succeed by providing support, high-quality products with an excellent compensation plan.
I encourage you to go and make yourself familiar with the 7 founders and their stories of what brought them to co-creating DōTERRA.
