Essential Oils. Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds that are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers of plants.  They contain the regenerative and defensive properties that the plant needs to thrive and maintain well being despite threats in their natural environment. 

Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of yourself and your family. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless.

That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise. I know that because I find you here, searching for a product that matches your commitment to your personal, family and professional well being, you’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity. 


The Big Difference. What has 3 million people noticing the difference and choosing doTERRA oils?  dōTERRA® CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade standard was created to ensure that the compounds are carefully extracted from each plant to produce essential oils that are pure, natural, aromatic . They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities and they are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.

As important as it is to keep contaminants out of our oils, assuring the presence of the oils’ active compounds at the right levels is necessary to guarantee safety and effectiveness. While many oils claim to be therapeutic grade, and some of them might be pure,  few are subjected to rigorous testing standards for chemical composition to ensure both the extract purity and composition potency of each batch.

dōTERRA works closely with a global network of leading essential oil chemists and growers to select botanicals of the correct species, grown in the ideal environments, and carefully harvested at the right time. The aromatic compounds of the plants are skillfully extracted by experienced distillers and subjected to chemical analysis to ensure purity and composition. 


Empowering the Globe. Did you know that  your choice making a GLOBAL difference?  doTERRA's Co-impact Sourcing Program as well as the Healing Hands Foundation have made a significant impact elevating the global communities where doTERRA sources the oils. 

Co-Impact Sourcing develops long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships and helps to provide the resources and education needed to improve the economy—and even sometimes create an economy—in these communities. Jobs are created as the need for an essential oil is met. Farming and distilling equipment as well as training are provided, and farmers and distillers enter into agreements that assure them of fair and timely pay that they can rely on. But that’s not all. doTERRA’s non-profit, charitable organization, the Healing Hands Foundation, also plays a role to help the rest of the community by providing education, building schools, and working to provide the necessities of life, such as potable water and needed infrastructure.
