I'm so glad you asked!
Essential oils embody the regenerating, protective, and immune strengthening properties of plants. They can support the body in a variety of ways: Promote relaxation, support healthy immune function, promote emotional health, support muscle and joint function, provide antioxidants, maintain healthy circulation, promote healthy digestion, purify the body's systems, support respiratory function, and on- and on.
As a healthcare professional, I see that just one modality alone doesn’t lead to overall wellness success. We need balance and plant based wellness is the perfect addition to add into your wellness routine as a complement to EVERY avenue of health and wellness. I ultimately chose doTERRA because I am very picky about the products I use with my family. They must meet my quality standards and they must have a quality assurance that they will be the same every time and be safe to use. My whole reason for looking toward essential oils for wellness was to avoid unnecessary synthetic chemicals that can wreak havoc on every organ system in your body. What I found when researching essential oils was that most companies don’t have a testing protocol and when third party tested, they were adulterated and fake, although they were marked 100% PURE. This is unacceptable! Here are the reasons I use doTERRA®.
Purity: dōTERRA® goes above and beyond to ensure each and every essential oil and product they made is the highest quality. They utilize the correct species of plant, parts of plant, geographic region, climate, altitude, harvest method, harvest season, and distillation process to ensure you only get the best. Their dedication to purity standards is truly an understatement.
Cō-Impact Sourcing: Truly the dōTERRA® difference. In order to work with committed partners and to ensure the best growing conditions, dōTERRA® sources essential oils from across the globe. With an ever-expanding product line that includes over 100 different essential oils sourced from over 40 nations, dōTERRA® truly offers Earth’s best gifts. Sourcing essential oils in impoverished nations, your purchase has the ripple effect of creating jobs, hospitals, schools, water wells, homes, and more projects to come that best suits their needs as we move forward. Having these extensive sourcing partnerships, it empowers dōTERRA® to produce exclusive, proprietary oils and blends that preserve the purity and potency of each plant. Eighty-four percent of doTERRA® single oils and oil blends are exclusive, ensuring that essential oil users receive a product that is truly unique and unrivaled.
Third Party Testing: Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils are defined by the rigorous testing procedures that go into verifying each and every bottle. dōTERRA® utilizes 13 different methods of testing to provide such CTPG oils. Each one of these tests is run 7-8 times through a 3rd party laboratory before essential oils are bottled! THESES TESTS INCLUDE: Stability , Heavy Metal , TCP/Microbial, Pesticide Analysis, Chiral GC, Isotope Carbon 14, Biochemical Pairing, Taxonomy, VOC Volatile Carbon Analysis, Thin Layer Chromatography, LC/LCMS.
Scientific Investments: dōTERRA is a science company and has partnerships with over 100 medical professionals, hospitals, researchers, and scientists. dōTERRA goes beyond a multi level marketing company, they have become a form of healthcare that is supported by science.
Healing Hands Foundation: The dōTERRA® Healing Hands Foundation® brings healing and hope to the world by providing global communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. In addition to sharing essential oils with the world, dōTERRA aspired to serve people and communities with the resources they had. Initially, this meant donating to charities, fundraisers, and community projects. Now we partner with other charitable organizations and dōTERRA Wellness Advocates to offer hope to millions around the world.
As you can see, not all essential oils are created equally. This is why I only choose the highest quality oils that are also trusted in hospitals around the world.
I would love to show you how healthy can be simple.
In Healthy and Happiness,
