Why choose doTerra?

Why choose doTERRA?

dōTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are 100% pure natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities. Proper extraction and quality control methods also ensure that dōTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are free of any contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.

To raise the essential oil quality bar, the doTERRA founders defined a new standard for essential oils: “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” or “CPTG.” To meet this new standard, each batch of oil must meet the current “Pure Therapeutic Grade “ standard and then in addition to those requirements, each batch also must go through a mass spectrometry test as well. This test verifies that the amount of each required constituent is correct for each batch of oil to ensure maximum potency. In addition, this test also ensures that no additional ingredients such as weeds, pesticides or synthetics are in the oil. This allows doTERRA to guarantee that every batch is 100% pure, natural and free of synthetics. Read doTERRA's CPTG statement by Dr. Hill here.

CPTG refers to doTERRA's quality control process, which includes:

proper sourcing;
harvesting the plant material properly and at the optimum time;
follow proper distillation methods in the location that it is sourced;
proper analysis of the chemistry of the oils; and
proper handling and production. doTERRA's essential oils go through five types of third party testing, including:

gas chromatography;
mass spectrometry;
FTIR Scan (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy);
Microbial Testing; and
Organoleptic Testing.Find out more about these five types of tests here.

Because of the mass amounts of testing each batch of doTERRA essential oils go through, they are the safest most beneficial oils available on the market. Even individuals that have had a history of problems such as skin irritation or are sensitive to fragrances and have been using other essential oils have found better success with doTERRA oils because of the purity. The difference in quality and purity is easy to identify with a side-by-side test and is very noticeable in the aroma, touch and potency. Read more about what Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade means here, and also this will explain as well.

Safe for ingestion
Most essential oils that you buy at stores, including organic essential oils at health food stores, are not for internal use; whereas, doTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are safe for ingestion (depending on the oil) and work perfectly with the body to support the normal functions of your body.

Why I chose doTERRA?
I chose doTERRA essential oils because I want the purest form of oils for my family. My has Ulcerative Colitis and I try and keep his eating and lifestyle as clean as possible. I found that the oils are a safe and pure for his system. I want to be proactive in my families health and not so dependent on western medicine to make the decisions for us. Don't get me wrong I believe there is a place for Doctors and Hospitals, believe me Liam see's his share still. I just am trying my hardest to keep him healthy so he does not have to see so many Doctors and can be the healthy boy I know he is meant to be. 
I am always searching for the scientific side and this website is great!
