Experience the dōTERRA Difference…
After extensive research of their product development and the philanthropic heart of company, I chose to completely align my personal wellness journey and my professional business with dōTERRA because of the integrity of the company and the lengths they go to, to deliver the purest quality essential oils on the market today.
dōTERRA seeks out raw plant material from areas where the plants are either indigenously grown, or where they best thrive due to climate and soil conditions etc. dõTERRA literally travels the globe to find sustainable sources of crops to harvest.
These efforts ensure that as consumers, what we receive is a product that is superior in therapeutic quality. To add to this, every single batch of oil must meet strict testing protocols, and to do this, the following is required:
- Rigorous testing (including Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry) assures the presence of desired therapeutic qualities.
- Third party testing guarantees a non biased analysis of absence of toxins, contaminants and microorganisms. (dōTERRA has also partnered with many different universities and labs
- Purity of oils guarantees no negative side effects or drug interactions. What you get inside these cute little brown bottles are literally potent and pure therapeutic grade essential oils.
Due to the fact that there is so many essential oils on the marker, it is really important to know that these oils contain no herbicides, pesticides, weeds, or fillers.
But you want to know the “thing” that had me purchasing my oils before I had ever tried a drop?
It was being connected to SOMETHING BIGGER- a GLOBAL MOVEMENT that is actually making a positive impact in the world.
What stood out for me was dōTERRA’s commitment to sustainability via an initiative called Cō Impact Sourcing, which helps to empower many communities in in exchange for their valuable services.
What this means is that the farmers, growers and distillers get paid fairly and on time. This creates a strong local economy with the guarantee of ongoing work, enabling them to provide for their families, send their children to school and because of the real life relationships created on the ground, trust that dōTERRA is invested in the longevity of a sustainable and mutually beneficial business partnership.
Sustainability is at the forefront of production, and that’s why dōTERRA can offer over 100 single essential oils sourced from over 40 different countries around the world- about 80% of which we consider to be developing nations.
This shows us, that we really can make a difference with how we choose to spend our money!
