Essential oils are not all created equal. In fact, you will notice a difference the first time you sample a dōTERRA essential oil. The difference in scents and results is dramatic. Imagine eating a grass-fed hamburger and a fast-food hamburger, or an organic garden-fresh tomato and a store-bought tomato. Which tastes better? The tastes don’t even compare! You will feel the same when you smell a dōTERRA essential oil!
The reasons I love and choose dōTERRA essential oils:
dōTERRA sources their oils where the conditions are ideal for that plant to grow – where they grow organically in nature. Plants flourish in this environment and then offer the most efficacious essential oils. Sustainability is also key for dōTERRA; they ensure that the plants they source from are able to keep producing in the future.
For example, I grow lavender in my backyard (because it’s pretty). However, the lavender I grow would not produce a quality essential oil. dōTERRA now sources their lavender from Bulgaria (formerly from France). They discovered that the riches from the Black Sea helped produce even more therapeutic lavender plants for essential oils! Check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nowf280Uxso
- Healing Hands Foundation:
dōTERRA began a non-profit called Healing Hands Foundation in 2008 (the same year the company began). The founders have always had a heart for giving back, which aligns well with my personal beliefs.

- Co-Impact Sourcing:
doTERRa sources their oils where they natively grow. Two-thirds of the countries happen to be in developing nations. dōTERRA is committed to making a difference in these countries by helping farmers get started growing the plants by providing the necessary tools and education, and then guaranteeing them a fair wage. Google “dōTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing” and you will find many videos showing our relationships with farmers around the world; grab a kleenex first!
Quality and purity were and are of the utmost importance to me in what I use for my family. With dōTERRA, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the essential oils we are using, smelling and ingesting are pure, tested and trusted – and we have experienced the results to prove it!
