What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are naturally occurring aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. In addition to their unique benefits and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have been used for centuries in a variety of ways such as: perfumes, food flavouring, skin support & salves, cleaning, emotional support and more.
In 2008, the founders of dōTERRA set out on a mission to make pure, potent, high quality essential oils that would be easy to use and even easier to share with the world. Since then, thousands of individuals, families, and communities have experienced the life-changing power of essential oils by incorporating the use of dōTERRA products into their everyday lives. With the goal of changing families, communities, and the world one drop of oil at a time, dōTERRA has put great effort into carefully planning each step of the essential oil production process. From the planting of seeds to the delivery of essential oils at your doorstep, dōTERRA ensures that every measure is taken to bring you responsibly sourced, tested, high quality essential oil products.
The purity of an Essential Oil is it's 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 Theraputic 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 on your wellness journey.
