I have been working with these incredible oils for some time now and am passionate about sharing how they can be used to support Natural Living Solutions, for physical and emotional health for the whole family.
doTERRA serve to educate about the oils and how they can be used to support this lifestyle in a world where we are moving away from chemicals, over use of medications and synthetics. Where we start to look at what we are doing to the planet and what we are putting in and on ourselves.
I love science, facts, research and humanitarian policies, I have it all here with doTERRA.
Co opted sourcing
“Co-Impact Sourcing,” is a strategy in which doTERRA is working to improve lives and communities throughout the world. Many of the essential oils offered by doTERRA are sourced in developing countries, where the growers and distillers are often at the mercy of middle men.
Co-Impact Sourcing helps create coalitions of growers and distillers that eliminate the need for those third parties. As a result, local communities receive fair and timely payments that not only support their crops and harvest, but also have a direct, immediate impact on the community as well. doTERRA works with these coalitions to provide the resources, tools, and training necessary to ensure a long-lasting partnership.
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG)
Someone said to me recently that doTERRA had made up the CPTG, that its not a thing and that a lot of oils are therapeutic grade.
Couple of things here:
There is no regulatory body for Essential oils. Anyone can say their oils are 100% therapeutic. What doTERRA served to do by putting their oils through a rigorous testing procedure and including third party analysis was to PROVE that their oils are therapeutic and pure.
I can grow lavender in my garden, but its chemical components and properties will be no comparison to that grown and distilled in areas where it is indigenous, free of pesticides and chemicals and produced by generations of farmers, harvesters and distillers.
This same pant could be distilled elsewhere, resulting in the degradation of the properties, it could be distilled too fast for a quick result, it could have been harvested too soon, to meet payment schedules from the middle men. Over 90% of farmers are sole producers to doTERRA.
I can enter the code on the bottom of my lemon oils and see the test results, I can see the chemical compound breakdown and see that limonene is at 70%..

The work done by this part of the process, makes my heart sing for joy.
