When it’s time to make a decision on which company to choose, there are hundreds of Essential Oil companies out there.
I know what you’re thinking. You can buy essential oils anywhere, right? Yes, you can. But you may not be getting what you think.
You see, many of the essentials oils found in health food stores, specialty stores, boutiques and even online stores are NOT 100% essential oils. Or they may be grown in one state or country (and possibly exposed to pesticides and other toxins) and processed in another area. You never really know what you’re going to get.
What is most important to me about dōTERRA?
For me, it came down to purity. I chose dōTERRA because I can be assured of their quality and purity. They are 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Oils (beyond organic). You can learn more about what CPTG means on this page. dōTERRA is committed to the highest quality products and have great customer service as well. And with that came the gift of knowing that the company I chose was respecting our earth and its people by using only indigenous plants, and respecting a sustainable process.
- dōTERRA is currently the only Essential Oil company on the market that uses a third-party purity testing process for every single batch of oils that comes off of it’s lines. If it’s not 100% pure, it doesn’t get sent out. This process ensures me that when I take oils internally, I am not ingesting anything but whole, pure oil. I chose this route of medicine to get away from fillers and solvents, so it makes sense to me that I would go with a company that can prove to me that I am only getting the most pure product possible… it makes a difference!
- The plants that are sourced for Essential Oils have been used medicinally for ages… far longer than America has existed. When their medicinal qualities were discovered, they were discovered in their indigenous soil, air and water. dōTERRA realizes to grow these plants in a greenhouse would be to removing them of their power. So, all of the plants used for dōTERRA oils are grown in their indigenous setting, by local farmers, who are paid a fair wage. Below is a sourcing-map if you would like to see where your oils will be coming from… it’s really cool to envision!
- Being kind to the earth is something that is super important to dōTERRA! For instance, it takes about 3 acres of Roses to make a 5 mL bottle of Rose oil. So, dōTERRA doesn’t sell Rose oil on it’s own. It’s just too costly to our planet. Since I have been with the company, I have even seen them pull an ingredient from a blend because the plant was becoming endangered. This is the exact standard of integrity that I want to stand behind, this is the kind of mission that I want to work with. I have yet to seen another oil company match that standard, and it is this reason that I trust dōTERRA wholly with what goes in my body.
There are multiple ways to purchase and learn from dōTERRA, and they are not mutually exclusive. Another beautiful thing about the company is that they understand that every oil user is different, which means that everyone will need to purchase and learn at a different pace. I teach classes constantly, with no obligation, and I love teaching one-on-ones. There is a contact form below if you are interested in learning more. Don’t let distance be a deterrent!… I travel, and there is always skype!
