Pure Essential Oils

Today essential oils are everywhere, you can find them in chemists, markets, health food stores and online. How do you know which are the best? What are you buying online? What is in the bottle?

However, be careful about what you are purchasing. Just because it is labelled "100% pure", this does not mean that it is safe. It could be synthetic, heavily contaminated or adulterated. The test they use (GC/MS), to allow them to label the bottle, is only as good as the person performing the test and they are only looking to see that the components of the oil is in the bottle. They do not test for or look for anything else.

Make sure you purchase essential oils that are natural and safe. The most important thing to look for is purity. Pure essential oils will allow you to reap the full benefits of the oil as nature intended and that the oil is safe to use for your whole family.

Remember you usually get what you pay for and essential oils are no different. This is why dōTERRA sell person to person. When you order from the representative, the products are shipped direct to you from the dōTERRA warehouse.


What to Look for When Buying Essential Oils

Every company claims to have “pure” essential oils, but how do you really know if the oils you’re using are pure? How do you know if the essential oils you’re buying are worthy of being used by you and your family?

If you want the best essential oils, find out if the company you plan to buy from takes the following precautions to ensure the quality of their oils:

Sustainable and responsible sourcing (Where do their oils come from?)

Extensive and thorough testing (Do they test their oils for adulteration and contamination?)

Clear and accessible safety and usage information (Do they show customers how to use the oils safely?)

Transparency (Do they use third-party testing? Do they make test results public?).


What Makes doTERRA Different?

When you use a bottle of doTERRA essential oil, you’re using an oil that is pure. We test, so that we know, there are no contaminants, fillers, or adulterations. The essential oil industry did not have standards to ensure purity, so doTERRA created one.

Every batch of doTERRA essential oils goes through a rigorous testing process—well beyond what would be considered “good enough.” Each oil batch is validated and tested by an independent third party lab.


After the Essential Oils Pass Purity Tests

If the oil passes the tests, it’s labeled as CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. When you see the CPTG® label, you know you’re using the purest essential oils on the market.

More than Essential Oils

It’s more than just testing that sets doTERRA essential oils apart. doTERRA works diligently to make a difference. Our mission is to change the world one drop, one person, one community at a time.

Responsible Sourcing of Essential Oils

There are several ways to produce essential oils, and not all essential oils are created equal. Some companies choose to cut costs by using low-quality plants or adulterate their oils with cheap substances. While cutting corners might save an essential oil company time and money, it will result in a low-quality oil.

Unfortunately, many of the production methods in the essential oil industry can also be harmful to the environment or result in the unfair treatment of farmers and growers.

Where do doTERRA essential oils come from?

Every oil sold by doTERRA is responsibly and sustainably sourced. doTERRA focuses on sourcing practices that will produce only the highest quality essential oils—no matter the cost. We make it a top priority to protect the environment during the production process and provide fair treatment of all harvesters and growers.

doTERRA created the Co-Impact Sourcing® Initiative and the following 8 principles to ensure responsible practices in all our sourcing communities:

  • 1. Generating Jobs: Reduce poverty by creating and sustaining jobs
  • 2. Providing Fair, On-Time Payments: Offer consistent, fair payments to producers, including prepayments
  • 3. Building Supplier Capacity: Support farmers, producers, and distillers through training and financial support
  • 4. Sustaining Long-Term Partnerships: Provide multi-year contracts with growers and distillers based on solidarity and respect
  • 5. Ensuring Fair Labor Conditions: Create healthy and safe working environments, free from harassment and discrimination
  • 6. Promoting Cooperatives: Guarantee respect the right for all employees and producers to join and form co-operatives
  • 7. Furthering Environmental Stewardship: Promote energy efficient technologies, renewable energy, and waste minimization
  • 8. Facilitating Community Development: Support community development projects in sourcing communities such as schools, health clinics, training facilities, and clean water systems

    • We take pride in sourcing the most pure, potent, and effective essential oils in environmentally and socially responsibly ways. Learn more at sourcetoyou.com.

      Humanitarian Impact

      From the beginning, doTERRA wanted to be more than a business. “There are givers and there are takers,” said David Stirling, doTERRA Founding Executive, CEO. “We wanted doTERRA to be a giver.”

      To accomplish that, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® was created—a nonprofit organisation that helps support community development projects in sourcing communities. These kinds of projects include funding for and building of schools, health clinics, training facilities, and clean water systems.

      The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation also partners with a variety of other organizations to support disaster relief; anti-human trafficking prevention, rescue, and rehabilitation; microloan programs; and feminine hygiene education.

      doTERRA generously donates to cover all administrative costs of the foundation so that 100% of all donations go directly to aid. When you partner with the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, your donation could save a child from human trafficking, repair a home devastated by a natural disaster, or help provide someone with access to healthcare.
