Sharing is service to others an innate desire in all of us.


The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. Appropriate analysis of the constituents within an essential oil is one of the most challenging and detailed aspects of quality assurance.

The lipophilic and volatile nature of essential oils causes them to be absorbed into the blood stream almost instantaneously, whether they are applied topically or used aromatically. Once in the blood stream, many essential oils cross the blood-brain barrier. Given this, it is crucial that you be confident of the purity of all essential oils that you bring into your home.

The information provided on this page does NOT apply to all essential oil brands. Because of lenient industry standards and a lack of regulation on terms such as "natural" or "pure", much of what you find at the drug store is not a therapeutic grade of essential oil and may lack real quality or even contain contaminants.

A LOT goes into creating a high quality essential oil. The best essential oil brands follow these guidelines:
  • Proper plant varieties
  • Grown indigenously for the healthiest plant
  • Grown without chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc
  • Harvested with precise timing to ensure peak properties
  • Extracted with proper temp and pressure to preserve oil molecules
  • Third-party testing of each and every batch
  • Stand behind the internal use of their oils


doTERRA has chosen to establish long-term relationships based on mutual trust and respect for the passionate commitment of the local growers and distillers to the quality and integrity of their products. These partnerships are based on personal relationships and a handshake and the purity and potency of each liter of essential oil is constantly monitored by the third-party testing. The relationship with dozens of local growers and distillers have lifted up local communities to a far greater extent than if they had simply come into the region, purchased land, and employed locals to perform labor with no personal investment.
