I get asked often why I chose to go with doTERRA for my oils and for a business, so on this page I will explain why I prefer their quality of oils, their testing, their integrity, their sourcing, the Healing Hands foundation and their business opportunity.
PURE—Contains natural aromatic compounds— no artificial ingredients, fragrances, or fillers, just the plant(s) listed
EFFECTIVE—Standardized powerful and therapeutic compounds from plants
QUALITY/SOURCING— Plants sourced globally where the plant grows best
SAFE—Tested 8-11 times to be free of harmful chemicals, pesticides, metals or toxic impurities. Stringent third party testing of every batch. Data of every batch can be found on www.sourcetoyou.com. Some of doTerra's essential oils can also be ingested. Check label first to see which oils can be used internally.
I can send you samples so you can see the difference for yourself. doTERRA wanted to start a company that was consistent in their standards and one that was able to ensure each batch was 100% pure. This means they had to create higher standards for their oils, regulating how the plants were grown, harvested, distilled, and delivered. Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) has come to stand for pure, high quality, therapeutic essential oils that work. Try them and you will see the difference. Nothing is added to the oils. No pesticides, fillers, synthetics or adulterants, just the plant with it’s benefits. doTERRA sends their oils to have multiple rounds (8-11 times) of third- party testing so another lab can ensure it too is 100% pure. They pay other labs to tell them how to improve their oils instead of how to increase their yield and decrease the quality. This video sums this up. And doTERRA is the only company so far that is doing this.
Commitment to Indigenous Farming
They grow plants only in the areas where they grow best. Oils not grown in this way have different chemical compounds, different properties, and produce a different quality.
Co-impact sourcing is truly wonderful. doTERRA works with growers around the world to ensure fair practices, wages to ensure the best oils. In order for doTERRA to be able to continue delivering high quality oils, they knew they had to make a difference in the communities that grew these plants too. They have provided these growers education and are paying them fair wages because they are the most important part of the process. We pay more because of this but it is worth it to have the highest quality oils while helping support other communities and lives.
Healing Hands Foundation
Healing Hands is doTERRA’s non-profit organization created to give back to communities in need. They partner with other organizations such as Choice Humanitarian, Days for Girls, Operation Underground Railroad and Mentors International to improve lives by providing food, products and helping build infrastructure, schools, homes and healthcare facilities. The best part is that every dollar donated goes directly to those in need.
Their Business Opportunity and Compensation Plan
While other companies are making it hard for their business builders to earn a living, doTERRA has committed to making it easier since they knew they could only be successful if their builders could be successful. They offer an ascending compensation plan, which pays you a higher percentage on the levels where you have the most members (it is usually the opposite of this in other companies). They have lower volumes needed to receive bonuses and Leadership pools, meaning you can reach higher ranks, faster. And they encourage you to pay it forward when higher ranks are made. They offer volunteerism trips and opportunities to travel the world donating time and energy to helping other communities since at the heart of this company the mission is to make a difference.
