Why dōTERRA?


Higher Standards

If you want to buy essential oils (essential oils), you might make some lifestyle changes—including replacing your traditional synthetic products with natural ones. So, what happens if the essential oil you buy still contains synthetic chemicals that you actually want to avoid?

In fact, not all essential oils are the same. Many essential oils on the market are heavily contaminated or adulterated with chemicals, often to make the product cheaper. The classic expression, "Ada price ada rupa" also applies to essential oils. Low prices oftenindicate cheap products, full of mixed ingredients and synthetic ingredients and additives. When you're building a healthy lifestyle that's free of synthetic ingredients, it's certainly not what you're looking for.

Effective and pure essential oils are non-negotiable. Purity not only gives you that the essential oil is of the highest quality, but also that it will allow you to reap allthe benefits that nature offers. That's why, at doTERRA, we created our own industry standard for essential oil purity: CPTG®.

CPTG essential oil passes through various tests that check for contaminants and verify their purity. After passing internal tests, doTERRA essential oil is sent to a third party for further testing. Theessential products of doTERRA meet these strict standards, as quality is also non-negotiable for us. When you look at the CPTG label, you know that you are using the best essential oils on the market.

The essential doTERRA is different — and with just one drop, you'll understand why
