Many of doTERRA’s experimental and clinical studies are performed by world-class external partner laboratories and clinics. doTERRA also supports many clinics and universities who approach us with study proposals in the field of essential oil and related natural products research.
doTERRA has worked with over 100 different organizations to do research and/or implement essential oils into their facility, including:
- VA medical centers
- hospices/care centers
Thanks to our independent research partners and in-house scientists, doTERRA essential oils have been studied in relation to:
- human genome biomarkers (That's 20,000 genes!)
- various microorganisms
- biochemical pathways in the body
- simulated macromolecules
doTERRA’s scientists are hard at work conducting clinical and experimental scientific research, providing more evidence of the efficacy of the most tested and trusted essential oils. doTERRA scientists have published peer-reviewed studies on 22 single oils, 3 oil blends, and 4 supplements.
