doTERRA Science Research Update

If you are wondering what is going on with doTERRA’s scientific experts and their state-of-the-art laboratory facilities—science, of course! And a lot of it. doTERRA’s scientists are hard at work conducting clinical and experimental scientific research, providing more evidence of the efficacy of the most tested and the most trusted essential oils.

The Leader in Essential Oil Science

doTERRA is the leader in essential oil science. As of 2020, doTERRA scientists have published 20 peer-reviewed studies in scientific journals, with several other manuscripts at various levels of completion. Again the results are fascinating, with research focused on more than the activity of essential oils, but also methods of application that are proprietary to doTERRA.

Research at a Glance

We’ve examined some of your favorite single CPTG® essential oils and doTERRA proprietary blends, investigating the ability of these oils to promote protective cellular responses, induce healthy structural remodeling, and even influence gene expression. Many of these studies are the first of their kind in the science world, providing new information about the biological activity of essential oils in a human skin model. We’ve pushed the scientific envelope even further with human clinical trials of doTERRA’s AromaTouch® Technique and by using innovative research methods and cutting-edge simulation technology never previously used to investigate essential oils and biological pathways. Along with our global network of research partners, doTERRA is single-handedly driving forward essential oil science with more to come.
