About dōTERRA

What Does doTERRA Mean?

doTERRA is a Latin derivative, meaning “gift of the earth.” From the beginning, the mission of doTERRA has been to share the highest-quality essential oils with the world. Having seen the incredible benefits of using these precious resources, a group of healthcare and business professionals set out to make that mission a reality in 2008. 

The first hurdle they needed to overcome was to establish a quality standard in an industry that had never had one previously. The doTERRA Founding Executives were committed to providing only the purest, highest-grade essential oils. This commitment led to the creation of a new standard of quality: CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. Every doTERRA oil is held to the highest possible level of purity.

Now, doTERRA means more than “gift of the earth.” It also means wellness, health, and hope.
