Why is doTERRA different?
Founded in 2008, doTERRA was built on the mission of sharing tested-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?
Inside many plants—hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, fruit, or bark—are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These naturally occurring compounds are essential oils. They are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home.
Essential oil benefits vary from plant to plant, within botanical families, and even from species to species. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make its aroma unique and give it specific benefits. Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and can even assist it with pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils offer a myriad of uses and benefits for your home and family.
What is Certified Pure Tested Grade (CPTG)?
The first hurdle to overcome, however, was to establish a standard of quality in an industry that had never had one. It wasn’t enough to simply provide essential oils to homes around the world; the doTERRA founders were committed to providing only the highest quality and purest essential oils so that families could know with surety that they were using only the best to promote health and wellness for their loved ones. This commitment lead to the creation of a new standard of quality: CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade
Co-Impact Sourcing initiative
With more than 140 origin oils in its product line, doTERRA sources its oils from over 45 countries—more than half of which could be considered developing countries. To ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, doTERRA has introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing.
Co-Impact Sourcing creates shared value for all stakeholders in the supply chain by being at the source and intentionally implementing environmental stewardship and/or social impact initiatives. Co-Impact Sourcing seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.
Additionally, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® helps support development projects in sourcing communities. Projects include schools, health clinics, improved infrastructure and clean water systems.
