Founded in 2008, doTERRA was built on the mission of sharing therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world. Having seen for themselves the incredible benefits that can be had from using these precious resources, a group of health-care and business professionals set out to make this mission a reality.
They formed a company and named it doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.”
What are essential oils?
If you’ve ever crushed mint leaves between your fingers, squeezed the rind of a lemon or simply smelled a fresh bouquet of lavender, you’ve experienced essential oils.
These naturally occurring, aromatic compounds are what protect plants and give them their distinct scents. They’re also incredibly powerful and just one drop can have several therapeutic benefits.
Each essential oil has its own set of unique properties, which means you can use them for multiple purposes.
You can use lemon to enhance your mood and purify the air. You can use lavender to soothe minor skin irritations and help you relax before bed. And the beautiful thing about doTERRA’s essential oils? They’re so easy to use. You can get the abundant benefits each oil offers by simply taking the lid off the bottle and smelling the amazing aroma.
3 reasons to choose doTERRA
Nowadays, there are lots of essential oil companies to choose from as they are quickly gaining popularity in mainstream wellness. However, not all essential oils are created equally.
In fact, the vast majority of essential oils you’ll find on the market today have been diluted with carrier oils and/or are synthetic.
Most plants used to make essential oils have also been sprayed with pesticides, fertilizers and other pollutants which is especially dangerous because essential oils are so concentrated.
It’s extremely important to find oils that are 100% pure and free from all fillers and toxic chemicals – which you won’t find at the local health food store.
That’s why I recommend doTERRA.
When you choose doTERRA, you get essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. Each doTERRA essential oil is then carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict quality protocol. We test not only for purity but also for potency; making sure our oils are chemically correct ensuring their effectiveness.
Many of the essential oils offered by doTERRA are sourced in developing countries, where the growers and distillers are often at the mercy of third parties. doTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing helps create coalitions of growers and distillers that ensure local communities receive fair and timely payments to support their families and communities.
The doTERRA mission hinges on discovering and developing the world’s highest quality therapeutic grade essential oils and related natural wellness products. They accomplish this with a strong team of in-house scientists as well as highly accomplished scientific and medical advisors. They also stay at the forefront of scientific advances by partnering with selected academic, industry and medical institutions.
