dōTERRA Essential Oils

dōTERRA essential oils are the highest quality essential oils you can buy. Every batch of oil is sourced from its natural place of origin, and tested by a third party lab to ensure the purity reaches dōTERRA standards. 

In Latin, dōTERRA means "gift of the Earth," which is exactly what their products are. dōTERRA and I share the belief that the Earth provides us with just about everything we need to sustain long life, and long-lasting youth.

They can proudly make the claim: "dōTERRA is the world leader in sourcing, testing, manufacturing, and distributing CPTG® (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) essential oils through a global network of more than five million customers." 

There are no other oils that match dōTERRA standards for purity, and thus effectiveness. Since it's founding in 2008, dōTERRA has raised the bar for essential oils. Although others have tried, no has achieved their level of purity and strength. (See their standards under the heading "CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade — An Innovative Standard" on the link above.)

What is Essential Oil

Essential oil is the oily substance secreted by plants that give them their scent, helps attract bees for pollination, and in some cases repels natural predators such as bugs or webworms.

For thousands of years people have used various plants in everything from personal hygiene to natural healing. The oil secreted from those plants are what give them their useful properties.

The more freshly picked the plants are, the better they work. This is because the oils from the plants are volatile aromatic compounds. This basically means that they change from a liquid state (oil) to a gas very quickly. That's why they are so fragrant.

With the rise of Western medicine, natural healing seems to have fallen by the wayside. While western medicine has its place, the natural way is still important and in some cases, superior. 

Over time, humans have developed a process to identify the part of the plant with the richest oil source (bark, leaf, stem, or peel, etc.), and distill the oil out of the plant to make a concentrated form. After it's bottled, it can be sold as essential oil.

dōTERRA is ushering in a new modern age of integrative wellness. With both medical and business professionals, they are creating a new era of long-lasting life and youth.

Essential Oil Sourcing

t is very important to remember that not all essential oils are created equal. Plants that grow in their natural habitat produce higher quality oil. For example, lavender's place of origin is France. Lavender that comes from France is more fragrant, and thus the medicinal properties of French lavender are stronger. 

dōTERRA sources all of their essential oils from their natural country of origin. There are dōTERRA distilleries all over the world. 

Their testing process is unrivaled. "The purity of an essential oil is it's most important characteristic." Oils that have been improperly handled during their sourcing can contain many contaminants, from germs to heavy metals. Impurities in oils can cause irritation to the skin, or can even be toxic to your body if consumed.

That's why dōTERRA offers the option to view test results of each batch of their oils. With dōTERRA you can feel confidant that what you are putting on or in your body, is not only completely natural, but is also of the highest quality in the world. 

Many essential oils you can buy over the counter are also diluted with unhealthy oils such as hydrogenated soybean oil, or vegetable oil. 

Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade

Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade or CPTG, is a term created and patented by doTERRA. This certification was created because of their unique testing process.

Certified Pure refers to the composition of the oils. The growers carefully reap the highest quality crops to send to the distilleries. Once the oil is distilled, it is examined by Botanists and Chemists to ensure absolute purity.

Therapeutic Grade refers to the benefits you get from the oils. The purity of the oil directly relate to the efficacy of the oil. This is why Practitioners, Doctors, and possibly most importantly, moms use this oil. 

doTERRA is willing to throw away an entire batch of oil if it does not pass the screening process. They have before, and they will again, because doTERRA is a company that puts purity above profit.

Healing the World

Not only are doTERRA oils the purest in the world, and incredible products you can trust, but as a company doTERRA does an incredible amount of good for the world through their Healing Hands program.

When doTERRA grows their plants in countries around the world, they only work with small local farmers, to support communities. Their distilleries are local, and they hire locals to run them. Their harvesters are also locals to that country. 

With every new oil that comes to the market, doTERRA has created thousands of local jobs, where they pay all of their partners and employees fair market prices. If a farmer produces a crop that is not high enough quality for doTERRA to use the oil, they still pay the farmer for the crop, even though doTERRA will make no profit from it.

Cardamom Essential Oil created 1,045 jobs in Guatemala

2018's new oil, Yarrow Pom is also coming from Guatemala and creating even more jobs.

Frankincense Essential Oil created 36,837 jobs in Somaliland, where it is nearly impossible to make an honest living. Because of the profits, doTERRA was able to sponsor 2 Somali boarding schools.

Wintergreen Essential Oil created 1,165 jobs in Nepal.

Vetiver provided thousands of jobs in Haiti, after being devastated by the earth quake in 2010. 

In 2018 Peru welcomed doTERRA with open arms, to provide Pink Peppercorn. Pink Peppercorn grows rapidly in Peru and has previously provided them with little other than shade. doTERRA arrived to buy their product, and help their communities thrive. 

2018's Pink Peppercorn is also coming from Nigeria, where they are helping women provide for themselves in a much better way, than many could have ever before. One woman's testimony at the 2018 doTERRA convention, brought many to tears.

When she was pregnant with her 5th child her husband was killed in a road accident. She tried to make rope to provide for herself, but no one would buy it. Desperate to feed her family, she was forced to sell herself for barely enough to get food. 

Because she has no money, she was forced to take all of her children out of school. Then, she was contacted by a member of the doTERRA team, and asked to harvest Pink Pepper. Since she could not leave her children, they offered her an advance to put all of her children in school so she could harvest the Pink Pepper. 

The very next day she arrived with a huge bag of Pink Pepper. Since then she made so much money working as a harvester for doTERRA, that she and her children are able to eat like royalty, but she didn't stop there. She saved her money and purchased a donkey, which she uses to haul water for her village, where people used to have to walk miles and miles, hauling heavy jugs filled with water. 

Not only does doTERRA provided plenty of high-paying jobs around the world, but they are partners with the RAPHAHOUSE aftercare program that helps educate women and children in third-world countries about how to avoid being abducted, and to provide aftercare to people who have been rescued from human trafficking. 

doTERRA is also partners with Project Underground Railroad, which is a team of highly trained professionals, put together by an ex CIA agent. They smuggle women and children out of human trafficking circles and get them to safety, where they are treated in the aftercare programs.

All of this was still not enough to satisfy the doTERRA giving spirit. In 2018 doTERRA announced that they are joining the war on cancer, and donated $5million to cancer research. The incredible scientists and medical professionals at doTERRA will be working with a team of cancer researchers to find a natural cure for cancer. They announced their intension to eradicate cancer from the face of the Earth.

doTERRA is changing the world. They aren't going into third-world countries and handing out food. They are creating jobs, so these people can always have food. They are teaching people how to create or install water filtration systems. They are erecting schools, and saving families. They are rescuing women and children from unthinkable horrors, and now they are on the front lines of the war on Cancer. 

With every bottle of oil you buy, you become a part of doTERRA's healing hands.

Lifelong Vitality

Since I was a child, I have believed the Earth gives us all of the keys to live a long time and have lasting youth. Finding these keys and knowing how to use them is the game of life. 

doTerra makes this so easy, it almost feels like cheating. Especially in the case of the Lifelong Vitality Pack.

The Lifelong Vitality Pack is a dietary supplement that makes all other supplements obsolete. This is the story of its conception.

There once was a doctor named David Hill. Appalled by the chemicals and unhealthy additives put into supplements that masquerade as healthy, he wanted to create a supplement to replace all other supplements. 

He wanted this supplement to contain everything that humans do not get from their daily diet. Not only that, he wanted all of the ingredients to be natural, organic, and GMO-free.

Everyone he approached about developing this supplement turned him away, saying it would be far too expensive to sell, so there would be no way to turn a profit. 

Then one day, he was approached by a company that named itself "Gift of the Earth." They asked him to come on board with their mission to bring therapeutic-grade essential wellness tools into the homes of the world. 

He told them he would only come on board if they would find a way create this perfect supplement, and price it so people could have it. Together, he and doTerra did just that.

They created the Lifelong Vitality Pack, and they sell it at cost to make it affordable. They do not make a single dime off the sales of the Lifelong Vitality Pack; you pay solely the price of the ingredients and manufacturing.
