Essential oils are extracted from plants, but not every plant produces an essential oil. Out of the enormous number of plant species on Earth, fewer than 5% are known to do so. Each essential oil is made up of various chemical constituents that give it a unique aroma and beneficial properties.
Founded in 2008, dōTERRA was built on the mission of sharing therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world. Having seen for themselves the incredible benefits that can be had from using these precious resources, a group of health-care and business professionals set out to make this mission a reality. They formed a company and named it dōTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth”. Essential oils are manufactured to the highest standards of quality, purity and safety used in the industry - CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade ™.
The certified pure CPTG ™ essential oils can be used in aromatatherapy, as massage oils or taken as food supplements. dōTERRA helps facilitate the various uses of essential oils in their various forms, providing both quality products for traditional applications and technologically advanced applications with modern diffusers, in the form of nutritional supplements and creams.
