About doTerra

doTERRA is a company unlike most others. It´s a business with soul and a forefront company with a huge commitment to science and transparency - always on the leading edge of holistic medicine.

doTERRA essential oils are the safest, purest and most effective oils available in the world.

Are doTERRA essential oils organic? They are “above organic”.

The “organic” industry has many leap holes and the criteria for the label “certified organic” are very loose. A product can be certified “organic” even if a large percentage of the product ingredients are not and because of this there is room for a standard classified as ”above organic”.

The above mentioned issues are the reasons why the founders of doTERRA created their Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG) which exceeds industry standards. Because organic certification varies from country to country, province to province and state to state, it is not currently possible to acquire all oils under certified organic status. However, through the GC/MS analysis process, doTERRA is able to ensure that all CPTG essential oils offered are absolutely pure and a step above organic (watch video HERE).

If an oil fails the purity test, there is no secondary process for removing the pesticides or foreign matter. The oils failing will simply be rejected. The oils are 100 percent pure aromatic extracts. Nothing is added. Nothing is removed. They either meet doTERRA´s standard or they don’t. 

“Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils mean something very different. It means we protect the chemical compound of the plant just as it was produced from the earth. We don’t need to improve upon that. If we have the care, the scientific knowledge, the commitment and the integrity, we can preserve that.”

Dr. David K. Hill Chief Medical Officer, dōTERRA.

dōTERRA´s CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) essential oils represent the safest, purest and most beneficial oils available in the world. 

For an oil to qualify as a CPTG oil, it needs to be: 

  • FREE from added fillers, chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, microbes, heavy metals, contaminants and any other artificial substances. No dilution of active qualities.
  • Cross tested using mass spectrometry and gas chromatography to ensure purity and potency.
  • Pure with aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants through the finest steam distillation and expression methods. 
  • Sourced by a global network of leading essential oil chemists and growers to ensure correct species, growth in ideal environments and that raw plant materials were carefully harvested at the right time.

Instead of growing the plants in local green houses in Utah – doTERRA’s home state, doTERRA source their oils from 47 different countries around the world. They put a lot of science and research into creating oils with the highest therapeutic value possible. Here are some sourcing examples:

Wintergreen from Nepal
Frankincense from Somalia
Lavender from Bulgaria
Ginger from Jamaica
Ylang Ylang from Madagascar
Pink Pepper from Peru
Vetiver from Haiti
Magnolia from China
Wild Orange from Brazil
Eucalyptus from Australia
Lemon and bergamot from Sicily
Lemongrass from Southern India
Cardamom from Guatemala
Petigrain from Paraguay 

 

doTERRA works with local suppliers all over the world and is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of the many people who contribute to its oil production.

To be able to do this, doTERRA has introduced an initiative called “Co-Impact Sourcing” which enables them to lift families and communities out of poverty and promote economic growth. This is done through long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in many underdeveloped areas. This makes the farmers, growers and distillers able to provide for themselves and their families through fair salaries and profit shares of their batches. 

HERE is a video about the sourcing of lemon and bergamot essential oil from Italy.

In addition to the Co-Impact Sourcing model, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® is working to empower people through various development projects in sourcing communities around the globe. 

The relationships between doTERRA and their growers, farmers, harvesters and distillers are often times long-term and all of these people somehow become part of the doTERRA-family. 

Asking the question: “How can we serve and help people who need our support the best way possible?” doTERRA founded their “Healing Hands Foundation” through which they carry out projects covering e.g. the establishment of schools, health clinics and clean water systems, improved infrastructure, anti-human trafficking and feminine cyclic education. 

There are currently dozens of amazing Healing Hands projects taking place worldwide and as doTERRA Wellness Advocates we get the opportunity to contribute and participate in these projects as well. To view an example, click HERE.

doTERRA collaborates with universities, hospitals and hospices and their research papers are being published in mainstream medical journals. Guided by a bold vision to transforming public health care, doTERRA has in 2019 opened their first (out of many to come) “Prime Meridian Health Clinics” in the US – a network of integrative medical clinics wholly owned and overseen by doTERRA.
