doTERRA Essential Oils
doTERRA is the largest essential oil company in the world and has been growing year after year since being founded in 2008. In the past ten years, doTERRA has grown more than Apple as a company. You can read more about why choose doTERRA directly on their site also. People who use doTERRA oils rave about the quality and continue to be loyal customers after trying them. I myself became a believer in the quality of doTERRA’s essential oils about two years ago. I had used essential oils for several years prior to discovering doTERRA essential oils and I had used various essential oil brands. I noticed that there was a lot of inconsistency between the quality of the oils and the different brands I was using. Once I tried doTERRA oils and compared them to the ones I had been using, I switched out all my oils. I know many people who have had the same experience. Each batch of doTERRA essential oil is quality tested prior to being released to the market. You can check the results of the batch by using the number listed on the bottom of the bottle and going online at sourcetoyou.com. doTERRA has been known to run out of certain essential oils because the quality testing of the batch of oil didn’t meet their standards. They would much rather not allow a batch of oil, that doesn’t meet their extremely high standards, to be brought to market and lose money potentially in the process, than release it, knowing it might not be the quality that they expect from their growers and the essential oils just to make a quick profit. There is no other essential oil company in the world that is as transparent about their business practices and is all about making a difference in the world. Prior to getting involved with doTERRA several years ago now, I researched the company up and down and also looked at the quality reports of their oils. I compared the quality reports of doTERRA oils to other brands and there was no comparison.
What makes doTERRA oils so different?
doTERRA essential oils are considered certified pure therapeutic grade, CPTG, which means they can be used for all aromatic applications. doTERRA oils go through quality testing called GC/MS that verifies the natural components in the oils. doTERRA essential oils are more expensive because of the quality and the sourcing of the oils. Check here for more information on doTERRA quality testing. I also wrote about buy to buy essential oils from doTERRA instead of Amazon or Target here. doTERRA practices co-Impact Quality sourcing which means they have direct partnerships with artisans, growers and distilleries while giving back to the communities and empowering growers and their families to earn a better living in impoverished nations.

You can tell the difference in the quality if you take a drop of doTERRA essential oil and another company and put a drop on your hands. The doTERRA essential oil will disappear right away because it’s pure therapeutic grade meaning it doesn’t have any additives so it will disappear into the air right away. Now take a cheaper brand’s essential oil and put a drop on your hands and see how quickly the drop disappears. If it lingers on your hands, the essential oil isn’t certified pure therapeutic grade essential oil. An essential oil sold at the store can state 100% pure on the bottle but only contain 25% essential oil and the rest is fillers and additives. If you have had a reaction to an essential oil before, it can be due to the additives added to it and not necessarily the oil itself.
doTERRA essential oils are designed for all aromatherapy applications including aromatic, internal and topical. The doTERRA essential oil bottles directly indicate what methods are safe to use with what oils. The oil can only be used internally if the bottle has supplemental facts. For example, as a trained, certified essential oil coach, I know that not all essential oils can be taken internally and certain oils should be avoided if pregnant. Internal use of essential oils should always be done with a professional because certain essential oils can interfere with medications and there are certain oils that should be avoided if pregnant or nursing, however doTERRA makes essential oil usage easy by noting on the bottles the different ways the particular oil can be used. If you do use an essential oil internally, only use doTERRA essential oils and only the ones that have supplemental facts. You only need 1 drop to start and please use caution and discuss with your doctor if you are pregnant and/or have an existing medical condition. Also for example oregano essential oil shouldn’t be taken longer than 10 days in a row if taking internally and should be avoided during pregnancy.

How do you know what essential oils are safe and why would you choose one brand of essential oils over another?
There are several different levels of quality for essential oils. The highest quality essential oils are pure therapeutic grade and organic. 100% pure essential oils can include additives and only have 25% of actual essential oils so it’s very important to know what you are purchasing when it comes to essential oils. With the recent raising popularity of essential oils, so many essential oil companies have flooded the market. Many natural food companies, super markets and online companies now also sell essential oils and there are so many companies to choose from. If you do a search on amazon for essential oils, you’ll also see many different companies pop up. You can also check out Target stores and find essential oils in their isles. I’ve found essential oils in the beauty section of Target as well as in the home goods/candles section. When you are using essential oils on yourself and/or your children, you want to make sure you are only using the highest quality essential oils to minimize side effects, potential allergic reactions and other potential health problems. The same goes with diffusing essential oils. You don’t want to infuse low quality essential oils in the air that you are breathing just like you wouldn’t want to be using low quality candles with possible toxins in them.
