I get a lot of questions about why I chose doTERRA. When I can buy "oils" at Wally World -- really cheaply! -- why bother with anything else? (Trick question: the "oils" sold at Wally World and other mass marketers are either 100% impure synthetic fragrance oils or are diluted with synthetics or not even the oil that is stated on the label!)
So ... here's PART ONE of a mini-series about what sets my brand apart. As we go through this series you’ll get a better picture for yourself of these things:
Let's start with QUALITY & TRUST ...
There are no regulations or certifications when it comes to essential oils. Some people are upset by this, but I think of it this way: When was the last time that government got involved with something and made it better?
Because standards were non-existent, doTERRA came up with its own internal standard and certification of therapeutic potency and purity. It's called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. Our standards regulate how a plant is grown, harvested, distilled, and delivered. This standard is the highest in the industry, back by a company I've researched and observed to have the highest integrity.
Doesn't it come down to one core value: trust? Because of my own experiences, plus those of my oily tribe and my own research, I trust doTERRA to carry through on their promises of delivering the most pure, highest quality, most consistent for key chemical composition, most safe and therapeutically useful oils.

Bottom line: not all essential oils are created equal. The plant -- and even growing location of the plant -- matters. The precision of harvesting matters. Distillation practices matters. Testing matters. With many brands, you can't even trust oils to be what the label says it is (it is often synthetic fragrance oil or a fairy dusting of EO plus mostly cheaper oils ... or not at all the oil on the label!) ... who do YOU trust?
