Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Founded in 2008, doTERRA’s mission from the beginning was 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. They formed a company and named it doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.”
The first hurdle they needed to overcome was to establish a quality standard in an industry that had never had one previously. The doTERRA founders 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 Tested Grade™. Every doTERRA oil is held to the highest possible level of purity.
Now, doTERRA means more than “Gift of the Earth.” It means wellness, healing, and hope.
Though doTERRA was founded more than a decade ago, the memories, struggles, and sacrifices of the experience are still fresh. Watch the doTERRA Genesis story below.
doTERRA sources, tests, manufactures, and distributes essential oils and related products to over nine million doTERRA Wellness Advocates and customers. Company products are sold in 18 international markets and counting.
Through industry-leading, responsible sourcing practices, doTERRA maintains the highest levels of quality, purity, and sustainability in partnerships with local growers around the globe through Co-Impact Sourcing®. The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation®, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, offers resources and tools to sourcing communities and charitable organizations to raise self-reliance, increase access to healthcare, promote education, advance sanitation, and fight against human trafficking.
Through the life-enhancing benefits of essential oils, doTERRA is changing the world one drop, one person, one community at a time.
