Why doTERRA ?


The more pure the essential oil, the more powerful the results. Many essential oils available to purchase are not pure. Often, they contain fillers or other elements that dilute and alter the purity, thus diminishing the healthful qualities of the oil. In order to guarantee that the oils you use are pure, doTERRA and a team of highly skilled professionals formulated a successful testing procedure that qualifies doTERRA oils as uniquely pure and free of contaminants. This quality protocol is called CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade.®

During the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade process, each batch of oils is subjected to extensive and rigorous testing that ensures the purity, potency, and consistency of the essential oils. Because quality oils can empower individuals and families, doTERRA makes it their priority to provide you with the purest and most effective oils possible. With each doTERRA product, you can be confident that you are receiving the highest quality essential oils, and that our effective standard testing methods are created with you and your loved ones in mind. 


Another crucial element in providing a quality essential oil is guaranteeing that there is maximum potency.  For an essential oil to obtain a strong potency, the plant it originates from must be grown in the right environment. When plants are grown in optimal soil, temperature, and climate, they produce a higher quality of potency in the essential oil. 

To maintain this level of potency, doTERRA networks with experienced farmers around the world that intimately know how to grow plants in their native environment. This process is called sourcing. The sourcing process ensures that plants are taken care of properly and harvested at the proper stage by growers who have generations of harvesting knowledge. Once the plants reach their prime, they are then gathered and carefully distilled by artisans, making oils that are potent, consistent, and pure. 



doTERRA’s process of sourcing is intended to provide powerful essential oils as well as create an industry that uplifts and instills hope in farming communities around the world. This process is called Co-Impact Sourcing.®


In the heat-soaked lands of Haiti, tens of thousands of small scale farmers work diligently to provide food for themselves and their families. However, these local artisans are often paid inconsistently or unfairly for their work and are forced to live a life of poverty. By bringing the doTERRA Vetiver initiative to Haiti, doTERRA was able to grow Vetiver in its optimal environment and provide these skilled farmers with a sustainable stream of income for their hard work in the vetiver fields. doTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing is helping these local artisans provide for their families, obtain sustainable jobs, and have hope in their futures. Haiti is just one of the many Co-Impact Sourcing communities that doTERRA is helping worldwide. 


When you buy product from doTERRA, you are not only receiving an extraordinary product, you also become a part of the Co-Impact Sourcing movement that is blessing and changing lives around the world.
