Why purchase essential oils from doTERRA vs big stores?
Many people wonder why they would want to purchase their essential oils from doTERRA when they can just order some from Amazon or go to Target or Mother’s Market or Sprouts and purchase some. I wanted to explain this little more in detail because this is really important to know especially if you are going to use the essential oils for therapeutic purposes and around pets or children.
Why is purchasing oils directly from dōTERRA different than buying them from Amazon, Target, and Whole Foods? The short answer is: The essential oils sold at stores are not pure and are not intended for therapeutic properties. The bottle may state 100% PURE but can actually contain only 25% essential oil and the rest are synthetic additives or chemicals. But legally they can claim 100% “pure” because there’s no industry standard other than any oil bottle containing 25% essential oil can be labeled 100% pure.
If you have a bottle of Frankincense and it says “do not ingest” it’s because it’s not pure and it’s not meant for therapeutic usage. It’s only intended for aromatherapy purposes (smelling good etc). Also if you bought the essential oils bottle for less than $10 you can be sure it’s not pure. The low price equals less quality and test results show that these types of cheaper essential oils sold in stores have chemicals and additives added to them. These various essential oil companies are really causing more harm than good by selling products that can be dangerous not even mentioning the lack of education regarding how to properly use essential oils. These essential oil companies are essentially giving people power tools without telling them how to use them and these products can potentially have harmful substances in them with no quality control.
doTERRA essential oils are manufactured for therapeutic purpose which is different from just smelling something pleasant. doTERRA essential oils are intended to support your body naturally and every essential oils has it’s unique properties that are beneficial in supporting the body for various things. It’s important to learn and know how to use essential oils safely and what essential oil to use for what situation. With doTERRA it’s about safety, it’s about education, it’s about support, and it’s about a community and making a real difference in people’s lives. doTERRA does quality testing on each essential oil batch before it’s released to market. If the batch doesn’t meet the quality standards, the batch won’t be released.
Also pleas note that the doTERRA essential oils sold on Amazon has been found diluted and not be the authentic doTERRA products. doTERRA doesn’t have any authorized distributors on Amazon so if you are buying your essential oils from Amazon you are taking a risk. I have personally used essential oils over 6 years now and prior to discovering doTERRA essential oils, I used different brands. I can say from personal experience that there are huge differences in the quality of different essential oil brands. I had a whole cabinet full of essential oils which I thought were from a good and reputable brand and come to find out they were nowhere near of the quality of doTERRA essential oils. I wasn’t a believer in doTERRA’s essential oil quality until I tried the oils myself and saw and felt the difference with my own eyes when I used the oils on myself and my children and my husband. I became a doTERRA customer from that point on and switched out all the essential oils I had in my house with doTERRA essential oils. I never looked back. I’ve been a loyal doTERRA essential oil customer since 2015 and later on became a wellness advocate to help others discover the benefits of essential oils and how to use them safely.
I help my clients learn about essential oils, what oils they should use and how they should use them safely. Since I’m a certified essential oil coach through American Association of Drugless practitioners I have a deeper understanding of the chemical structure of essential oils and how essential oils differ from each other in their properties. I use essential oils personally daily and I use them on my whole family, my husband, my children and our dogs. I recorded a little video with more details on why the quality of essential oils matter. Please see the video below. I have personally witnessed the difference between essential oil companies so I encourage everyone to do the same. If you have not tried doTERRRA essential oils, I highly encourage you to do so. If you have been thinking about getting started with essential oils, I’m here to support you and give you additional resources. I also have an exclusive VIP only Facebook group and I send out an exclusive welcome package to all my clients.

Some points to consider as to why buy essential oils through someone at doTERRA vs from the stores:
When you purchase essential oils, your purchase will always profit a company whether it’s Target, Walmart, etc. When you purchase essential oils through a doTERRA Wellness Advocate or with your own doTERRA account, doTERRA gets part of the profit that they then invest on qualify control, product development, training of Wellness Advocates as well as supporting various humanitarian efforts around the work. As a Wellness Advocate, I get a part of a profit for what I do (I educate and support my clients and help them on their oil journey) and I’ve dedicated my business, Eden Purity as well as my team of wellness advocates, to helping others discover the benefits or natural health solutions and reduce toxins in their homes.
If you are purchasing the oils from the store, the retail store gets the profit for selling the oils to you (Mother’s, Target, Walmart Etc). So either you pay profits to a retailer you don’t know, some big company somewhere that doesn’t care anything about you or your family or the fact that you are purchasing possible a harmful product, or you support someone you do know that actually cares about you and your health journey.
How is the sales process done at doTERRA vs retail stores? It’s done through Relations Marketing to assure that the person has a person they can go to for information and training. It’s all about truly helping people and caring about the health of families. doTERRA is the number one essential oil company in the USA. If you think you don’t like direct marketing companies (I used to personally think this until I learned about it more and now I’m a huge supporter as long as it’s a company that has transparent business practices like doTERRA.) I encourage you to learn more about doTERRA because they are different.
What’s makes doTERRA different from other direct marketing companies? doTERRA doesn’t have minimum monthly purchase requirements or ongoing obligations. Having your own doTERRA wholesale account is like having a Sam’s club or Costco account where you have access to wholesale pricing without further commitments. The first annual account fee is only $35 and the optional annual renewals are $25 per year and include a free bottle of peppermint essential oil so basically your account renewals are almost free.
As a wellness advocate you are not required to carry an inventory or sell products, everything is done on your terms. The cost to become a Wellness Advocate is the same as a wholesale account ($35 for the first year, optional renewals are $25 per year and include a free bottle of peppermint essential oil). At doTERRA it’s not about selling products, it’s about helping others live healthier lifestyles and educating people on safe and proper usage of essential oils. doTERRA was built on making a difference in other people’s lives by producing the highest quality essential oils in the market today and also doing good globally by ethical sourcing and harvesting of essential oils as well as supporting various humanitarian efforts around the world through their Healing Hands Foundation.
If you think about it, every company in the world works in ranks, titles, etc. people grow as they become better at what they do. Just because a company is direct marketing doesn’t mean it’s bad or negative in any way. The person is there to personally help you and guide you – vs. you being a number to someone who is reaping the profits from your purchase and doesn’t care if you or your child is getting an allergic reaction from using the cheap $10 bottle of essential oil you just bought from Amazon. Is your purchase going to be profit to a no name guy (CEO)/company vs. profit to someone you know, who is passionate about helping you on your health journey and guiding you with safe usage etc. Please keep this in mind after someone you know shares essential oils with you and you turn around and buy them somewhere else. Please choose to support the people who are there for you and dedicated to your health, not big box stores. For example, I’m a certified essential oil and health coach and an essential oil user for over 7+ years. I’m passionate about helping my clients enjoy healthier everyday life and I want to guide you on using essential oils the right way so that you don’t have to go stand in front of an isle at Target, stare at some random oils and wonder if they are any good and how would you use them. When you are purchasing essential oils through me or someone on my team, you get essential oils from the number one essential oil company in the world with the highest quality essential oils with no added additives or chemicals, you get 1:1 coaching and mentoring, you get access to resources and additional materials that will give you the knowledge and confidence to use the essential oils safely, and you get on going personal support. All this at no additional cost. Why? Because I’m dedicated to helping you enjoy the benefits of essential oils the right way and want you and your family to enjoy healthier lifestyle. This is my expertise and passion so I want to share everything I know with you and my team of wellness advocates so that you can enjoy a healthier life as well and have the right tools at your fingertips.
I’m dedicated to helping my team, my clients and their families to use essential oils safely and to educate them on how to properly use the essential oils and why you would want to use them to support your own health. When you purchase an essential oil bottle from a store you get no support. You either spend near the same amount or you spend a little less on a sub par product risking health consequences from using the diluted essential oil bottle found at Amazon, Target, Mother’s or Sprouts. You don’t get the education, you don’t get the help, no recipes, no trainings, nobody to ask questions, no research, no community, no guarantee of the quality. The world of oils is vast and coming from someone who’s been using essential oils for years, I can promise you I wouldn’t be where I am without my journey, my education, community and the resources at my disposal, as an avid essential oil user in my family and a leader in the company paying forward everything I’ve learned.
I could go on and on about the extras and deep discounts we get as wholesale users and the countless products I’ve received for free the last several years from being with doTERRA as a wholesale customer myself. DōTERRA is the most generous company (a billion dollar, debt free, the number one largest essential oil company too!) I have hundreds of dollars worth of products I’ve received from them for free because I purchase from them, through someone I knew who is a mom working for the good of her family.
When you go purchase the essential oil bottle from Target, you are not earning any points to get your next bottle for free or get any promotions to get a bottle for free with purchase and you are getting product that is not guaranteed to be what the bottle states it to be. I personally used to use different brands of essential oils years ago before discovering doTERRA. Once I learned about the benefits of using doTERRA essential oils, the quality difference and about the transparent business practices of the company, I switched all my oils to doTERRA and I’ve been a happy customer every since. I decided to build my business around doTERRA to help others and give them the support that I was given when I joined. I learned about Aromatherapy years ago and started making blends and using them on my children and myself. Ever since then I’ve dedicated time to learning more about essential oils and I ended up getting certified as an essential oil and health coach and creating my business, Eden Purity, and a team of other amazing wellness advocates around my passion for helping others. I’m here to help you every step of the way. Please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll help you get started on your journey to better health. Let’s do this together!

Interesting fact: 95% of oils sent in hopes of dōTERRA distributing them are rejected because they do not meet our standards. “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.” – dōTERRA
