The process of bringing an essential oil blend from an idea to market is a long and complex one. The backbone of doTERRA® essential oil blends is chemistry and the synergism of the chemical constituents that provide the wonderful benefits. Blends are first imagined based on meeting a precise chemical profile to address a specific concern. Since doTERRA only works with whole oils and does not isolate chemical constituents, that initial profile is met by selecting individual oils and then deciding on the overall composition. Then tests can be conducted to ensure that the chemical constituents and their proportions are not altered by the blending process. Once the desired chemical composition has been established, other considerations such as scent can be addressed through further revision. Only after several stages of testing and revision, making sure that it meets CTPG standards, does a blend idea became a doTERRA essential oil.
