Why doTERRA?

All oils are not created equal.

doTERRA essential oils are the only Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade—or CPTG™—oils on the market. That means they’re guaranteed to be three things no other oils are: top-quality, carefully tested for safety, and exactly what they say they are.

For these reasons and more, I only use doTERRA essential oils in my own oil practice, and I only recommend doTERRA oils for yours.

I build my unique Oil-Scopes™ and All-Star Recipes on the quality of doTERRA essential oils, and design them to work in synergy with doTERRA’s starter kits. When you start with doTERRA, you know what you’re getting—and you know that your Oil-Scopes™ and All-Star Recipes will be exactly what I’ve designed for you.

Here’s doTERRA’s guarantee that all of their essential oils are active, authentic, pure, responsibly and ethically sourced, and Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade for safety and efficacy:


What is a doTERRA Essential Oil?

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.



CPTG™ (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade)

The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. An essential oil that isn’t pure means you run the risk of putting germs, heavy metals, or adulterants onto or into your body, which can provoke irritation, adverse effects, or even sickness. Without an accepted standard for essential oil quality, doTERRA created its own testing process, calling it CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. The CPTG process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in their essential oils that would reduce their efficacy. doTERRA even goes a step further, putting all their products and the packaging through a battery of tests to ensure a long and effective shelf-life. This protocol ensures potency, purity, and consistency batch to batch.


Co-Impact Sourcing

In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils, doTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production. Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that 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 Healing Hands Foundation, doTERRA’s charitable organization, provides funding and resources to create community-based, social-impact projects to improve lives in the larger communities where oils are sourced. Past projects include building or sponsoring existing medical clinics, installing drinking water and irrigation systems, building schools, and providing other educational resources such as vocational training programs.
