The doTERRA Difference

doTERRA Essential Oils

The most important part of choosing your essential oils is choosing the Purest Oils available. You’ve decided to make a change in your family’s health – a change for the better. It’s important that you use the safest and purest essential oil on the market.

If you’re wondering where to buy essential oils, you don’t have to look far.
However, be careful where you look, because many essential oils on the market are heavily contaminated or adulterated with synthetic chemicals. If you’re buying essential oils, it means you want something completely natural and safe. Make sure that you don’t accidentally buy something you think is natural but turns out to be synthetic.

When you want essential oils that are safe and effective, the most important thing to look for is purity. Pure essential oils will allow you to reap the full benefits that nature has to offer, and you can be confident knowing that they are safe to use to use with your family. Remember, you usually get what you pay for, and essential oils are no different.

Essential oils are everywhere. You can find essential oils at grocery stores, online, and even in your neighborhood market. With so many choices, how do you know which essential oils are best?

There’s a clear problem in the essential oil industry and it’s the lack of a clear and definitive standard for purity.

How do you know if your essential oils are pure? You, the consumer, has to do a little research to find out how essential oil companies source, produce, and test their oils.

DoTERRA recognizes this problem and addresses it by creating their own standard for purity, holding themself to that standard, and publishing those purity studies online. DoTERRA has the most transparent and highest quality standards available and it’s called Certified Pure Tested Grade or CPTG.

The CPTG quality testing process includes eight main steps to guarantee that every batch of doTERRA essential oil is pure, unadulterated, and safe for use.

Here are the tests doTERRA uses to ensure essential oil purity:

  1. Organoleptic testing
  2. Microbial testing
  3. Gas chromatography
  4. Mass spectrometry
  5. Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
  6. Chirality testing
  7. Isotopic analysis
  8. Heavy metal testing

Responsible Sourcing with Co-Impacting Sourcing

DoTERRA’s Mission is to provide the world’s highest quality essential oils and to change the world in a positive way while they do it. DoTERRA sources differently. 

In a traditional essential oil sourcing model, the essential oil company buys their oils from a third party middleman. They have little to no connection to the plants and the people involved in the creation of the oil – and they have little to no control over the quality of the essential oil produced. 


DoTERRA created a new model of sourcing that empowers people, lifts entire communities, and provides a high quality, sustainable product. DoTERRA works directly with the farmer, distillers, and harvesters using long-term and often exclusive contracts. They are taught how to take care of the Earth, how to cultivate the best plant sources, and how to build a farm that produces essential oil products in a sustainable and pure way. 

This model makes sure that the people are taken care of, paid on time and paid fairly, and are empowered to run their own farms.

Humanitarian Impact with the Healing Hands Foundation

Not only does doTERRA use a more beneficial sourcing model for all parties, but they bring in a non-profit called the Healing Hands Foundation to build up the surrounding community. To each community, doTERRA asks, “What does your community need?” Each community asks for something different – sometimes a school, a medical facility, a well for clean water, or other projects. The Healing Hands Foundation also works closely with other organizations to provide micro-loans, fight human sex trafficking, provide female health education to women, and more. 

This is about providing the best essential oils the right way.
