I get asked all the time, why I chose dōTERRA over other brands I created this page to not only answer that question but to share my journey with dōTERRA as well. This page expands on why I have chose dōTERRA.
I was introduced to essential oils over 20 years ago. I joined another company and was part of it for about 7 years. I was a power user of the essential oils, but it was all on my own. There were never any educational classes offered, and no one ever introduced me to the business side. I didn’t even know there was one. Why was that important to me? Because I have been sharing the essential oils with family and friends all along. I love natural wellness and different modalities for supporting health more naturally.
Honestly, I first decided to join dōTERRA for business reasons only. Their compensation plan was better than others I had seen and I loved sharing them with others. The essential oils I was using were great (or so I thought,) and now I could have the best of both worlds. I mean essential oils were all the same, right?
When I first got my kit from dōTERRA I started comparing them to what I was using. They smelled amazing – they smelled different. How can that be? Again, all of them are the same, right?
What I discovered along the way… dōTERRA the company.
It wasn’t until I joined dōTERRA that I discovered there is a difference in purity and quality; as well the essential oil industry is unregulated.
The more research I did, the more I realized how important it is to use the best essential oil to ensure they are safe, effective and my body receives the ultimate benefits. Much of what you find in retail and drug stores are not pure essential oils.
dōTERRA’s essential oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG)
Why is this important? Because many brands of essential oils (especially retail and drug stores) can contain synthetic ingredients, contaminants i.e. chemicals, pesticides, fillers or other artificial ingredients to make the oil cheaper in order to reduce costs.
A quality, therapeutic essential oil should include:
- Proper plant variety is grown indigenously for the healthiest quality
- Grown organically without chemicals, pesticides, GMO’s etc.
- Harvested at the optimal time to ensure best qualities of the plant
- Multiple Third-party testing of EVERY batch of oil for consistent purity and quality
Why is it important for plants to be grown in their natural habitat? If you think of a palm tree growing in Florida vs. Arkansas you can picture how much healthier and stronger the palm tree would be in Florida. It is a natural plant there and the climate provides the ultimate environment. This holds true with all the plants harvested for using to make essential oils, which is why dōTERRA has farms all over the world and 80% of these farms ONLY work with dōTERRA.
dōTERRA Company Integrity
Their leadership, stewardship, and being of service is what sets dōTERRA apart from other companies — it goes beyond their high quality essential oils.
They have become a scientific based company focusing on not only the quality of their oils, but also the efficacy of using them. They have exclusively partnered with John Hopkins Medical University in doing research on essential oils.
A great website for learning about the Growers, Distillers, Scientists, Practitioners, etc is: http://www.sourcetoyou.com There is a wealth of information on this website about essential oils and dōTERRA as a company.
dōTERRA has developed long-term partnerships that are mutually beneficial. The farmer is provided a reliable income and dōTERRA is provided the highest quality plants for sourcing their essential oils. I love how they are committed to making a positive difference in the farmers and their communities.
