Why Choose doTERRA Essential Oils?
Firsty - What is An Essential Oil?
Essential oils are pure extracts from plants, they are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs and are nature’s defense mechanism for plants and cells. They are highly concentrated so a little goes a very long way and they are a safe, effective, affordable, and an alternative to many synthetic products and/or remedies.
The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. When an essential oil is adulterated or contaminated, it becomes less effective and can even be dangerous. Above all else, purity is doTERRA’s first priority when producing essential oils.
Purity & Potency
With doTERRA's essential oils, there are absolutely no fillers, synthetics, fragrances, perfumes, pesticides etc. doTERRA essential oils are just that, 100% pure essential oil.
Not all essential oil companies choose to enforce high testing standards for their oils. In fact, many companies skip important steps in the testing process in order to save money or time. Unfortunately, when proper testing measures are not taken, it’s impossible to ensure that an essential oil is truly “pure.”
If you use an oil that has been adulterated, contaminated, or loaded with synthetic fillers, you will not receive the full natural benefit of the plant. And in some cases, low-quality oils can even be dangerous and pose serious threats to your health.
This is why doTERRA cares so deeply about essential oil purity. If you use an impure oil, it can be difficult to feel the benefits of the oil and can possibly put your health at risk. However, when you use pure, unadulterated essential oils, they’ll be more effective, and you can stay within the bounds of safe use.
To ensure that each bottle of essential oil is pure and free from contaminants or synthetic fillers, doTERRA created the CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade® protocol. The CPTG process includes a rigorous examination of every batch of oil, along with third-party testing to guarantee transparency.
doTERRA Essential Oils - More Than Organic
Are the oils Organic? No they are not, they are more than organic.
dōTERRA‘s quality standard for essential oils, CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade® , exceeds industry standards. Because organic certification varies from country to country it is not currently possible to acquire all oils under certified organic status. However, through the GC/MS analysis process, doTERRA is able to determine if any chemical residue exists in the essential oil, such as pesticides, herbicides, extenders, and solvents. With this rigorous analysis process, doTERRA are able to ensure that all Certified Pure Tested Grade essential oils offered by dōTERRA are a step above organic.
The Certified Pure Tested Grade standard requires that doTERRA's oil extracts be both free of other foreign materials, which is one of the main reasons for people seeking organic botanicals, and it tests for certain compounds at certain levels so that our oils meet the performance criteria for each lot of oil. If an oil fails the test, specifically pesticides, there is no secondary process for removing the pesticides or foreign matter. The oils failing the test would simply be rejected. Other than the careful distillation of the oils from the plant material, there is no other processing that takes place. They are aromatic extracts, nothing added, and nothing removed—they either meet our standard or they don’t.
Quite simply at Entreat we personally use and recommend Doterra products as we have complete confidence in the purity and potency of the products. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for other essential oil manufacturers and given that the products are absorbed and/or ingested into your body we can't over emphasize how important this is when using essential oil products.
doTERRA was founded in 2008, with a commitment to establishing patterns of giving. There are no outside investors; the founders personally funded the startup and own 100% of the company. They are family-focused and empowerment-centric and especially supportive of women and families in business. doTERRA is also renowned for giving back.
