Well Hello, Welcome to the Oily page!
I believe in living a life of balance, don’t you? What would that mean in your life?
This is what it means in mine…
I have chosen Doterra products because I believe in them. Why? Because they continue to work for me and my family in amazing ways and in my humble opinion, Doterra’s oils and products are the best of the best, highly effective and the purest you can get your hands on.
Not sure what essential oils are? Let’s figure that out, shall we? Can you remember when that certain special someone (which may be you) brought home a beautiful bouquet (or even just 1 perfect stem) of roses? If they were fresh picked their scent was beyond heavenly, right? Well what you have experienced, without knowing it, was the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds which are found in;
and other parts of the plant
Here’s another example, do you like citrus fruits? Have you ever peeled an orange and while doing so the rind squirted out oils? That’s the essential oil of the peel of that very delicious orange. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells and also play a part in plant pollination. In addition to essential oils being a benefit to the plants, they give off a beautiful aroma whether that is from our Rose, Orange or herbs such as Lavender and Rosemary. No wonder essential oils have long been used in food preparation, beauty treatments and healthy living.
From one batch to another, essential oils can vary in their composition depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method of distillation, year grown and the weather, making every step of the distillation process critical in the overall quality of the final essential oil product.
I am proud to say that Doterra goes to great lengths to ensure that all of their products are of the highest quality, and if it isn’t they will not have it available for their customers.
Purity and Integrity. Two essential components of a quality product and a quality company. Let’s start with Integrity.
Founded in 2008, doTERRA was built on the mission of sharing therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world. The founding leadership had seen the incredible benefits that could be had from essential oils and they set out on a mission…to bring these gifts to the world. So, they formed a company and named it doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.”
Doterra decided to be able to bring their vision of essential oils to the world, it would require people of integrity, dedicated to hard work, commitment, passion and those that would adopt and help advance the vision of the founding Doterra leadership. The vision has grown and evolved over the years but it’s mission remains the same today: Provide essential oils that anyone can use from beginner to expert and use them safely on yourself and your loved ones.
Sharing essential oils is a unique experience, and the founders of doTERRA recognized that a unique way to bring the essential oils to the general public would have to be new and different. Something special, just like the oils. In order to create the best possible essential oil experience, Doterra decided to put their oils in the hands of people, not store fronts. This individual one-on-one approach would allow the incredible power of the essential oils to shine and relationships of trust to be formed.
And finally, at the core of doTERRA, is the desire and drive to help others help themselves. Through our charitable foundation, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™, as well as our efforts in our community, we seek to help people improve their lives.
Now let’s talk about Purity. Without an accepted standard of quality in place globally for essential oils, Doterra created its own testing process called CPTG, or Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. This process ensures you that there are NO added fillers, synthetic ingredients or harmful contaminants in our essential oils that could run the risk of putting germs, heavy metals or other possible harmful substances in our body which could lead to irritations, adverse effects or even sickness.
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.
Doterra is aware that you have many choices when choosing an essential oil brand. Ensure that your brand of choice only produces 100% certified therapeutic grade oils, as these are the safest quality to use on yourself and your family.
When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils that have been gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world. After all, wouldn’t you rather have your Lemon essential oil from lemon groves in Italy? I sure do!
doTERRA is not only a leader in the essential oil industry, and a leader in purity and potency standards. doTERRA also gives back to the communities and areas in which they source their plant materials from. doTERRA funds humanitarian projects worldwide to provide better living conditions to the communities where we have farms, distilleries, and harvesters live.
doTERRA makes sure the way we source plants is always sustainable and makes sure the lifelong ability to continue to sustain the plant population without endangering its population.
