Essential Oil Companies: Why doTERRA?
Are you looking into essential oil companies? “Why doTERRA essential oils?” may be a question you are asking. I’m sharing the reasons I chose doTERRA as my sole essential oil supplier. Over seven years later, I’m even more impressed than when I started! doTERRA essential oils are the best for me. They are safe, effective, and affordable!
Why Buy doTERRA Oils?
When I was asking myself “Why doTERRA oils?“, three strong reasons stood out.
- First, doTERRA’s sourcing practices.
- Second, doTERRA’s testing practices.
- And third, the transparency around both.
Ultimately, these three reasons influenced my decision to purchase doTERRA oils.
First, let’s talk about sourcing. Sourcing means “Where do the plants that they use to get essential oils come from?” doTERRA’s sourcing practices were impressive to me when I was researching “Which essential oil company is best for me?” The best essential oil quality comes from plants grown in their indigenous region. doTERRA sources our oils only from those indigenous regions.
Why Is Sourcing Important?
But why is sourcing important? Essential oils are complex, with many different constituents. Those constituents are what ultimately benefit our bodies. A plant grown in its native region will have the best quality and balance of constituents in the essential oil that comes from it.
Secondly, I was impressed with doTERRA’s testing practices. doTERRA tests essential oils eight different ways. Only oils which pass all eight quality tests are labeled Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG). These tests are performed on every single batch of oil. Certified Pure Therapeutic grade is an essential oil quality standard which only doTERRA offers.
Instead of the CPTG level of testing, many of the other essential oil companies fell into one of two categories. I learned that:
- Most oil companies don’t offer the same level of testing as doTERRA.
- Other essential oil companies I researched do not test every batch of oil like doTERRA does. They use random batch testing instead.
Wait… What is Random Batch Testing?
Random batch testing means that every bottle of oil has not been tested. The essential oil company will only test at random or at every “x” number of batches. The “x” will vary by company. Key point? Random batch testing cannot be guaranteed pure or of the highest and most beneficial quality. How could it, when they are not testing every single oil batch?
The plants which oils can be made from have many variables. They could be grown in different climates, seasons, exposed to different growing conditions, and so on. Only testing of every single batch of oil can guarantee essential oil purity and quality every single time.
Why doTERRA? I wasn’t willing to leave my essential oil quality and purity to chance. As a mother with young children, I need the best oils possible. doTERRA does not do random batch testing. I chose doTERRA because they test every single batch of essential oil. You can rest assured the doTERRA oils are consistently pure.
Transparency In Oil Sourcing & Testing
The third reason I chose doTERRA is for the company transparency. Especially around essential oil quality. When I was looking at different companies to purchase essential oils from, I had many questions. I could always find the information I was looking for from doTERRA. I was able to find the countries they sourced from. doTERRA told me exactly which tests they use to ensure purity. doTERRA recently even opened to their Source To You website. What is amazing about the Source To You website? You get the GCMS (quality) report from every bottle of pure oil! What other essential oil company offers that kind of transparency? None. Except for doTERRA!
doTERRA Oils Have Never Disappointed Me
While there are many factors to consider, personal experience is the strongest factor. I have proven the purity and potency of my doTERRA oils over and over. The oils smelled so pure and strong to me. I could tell this was real lavender, real lemon, and so on… Because it smelled exactly like that same plant in nature. Doesn’t it just make sense, that oils should smell like the plants they came from? Yes! Of course!
Why doTERRA oils? Consistent, effective, and safe results. Every bottle of pure doTERRA oil, every drop! This is why I choose doTERRA and don’t choose to use any other company. My family deserves the best, as does yours. As essential oil consumers, we deserve results of the highest quality and we want those results to be consistent.
