What Are

Essential Oils?


What Are Essential Oils?

For thousands of years cultures across the world have looked to nature to support and maintain healthy lifestyles(1).

From as far back as 5000 years ago, we have evidence of the ancient Mesopotamians using plants and herbs as a way to support their wellness.(2) 


Essential Oils are the carefully refined and distilled essence of these plants and herbs, with their history reaching back to 1200 AD Spain(3). 


These gifts of nature are a valuable tool for any family looking for a natural way to support its wellness.

Why use doTERRA Essential Oils?



Anyone truly determined to take care of their wellness must make sure that whatever natural options they're using are as pure an unadulterated as possible.


While many essential oil brands fill their products with synthetic additives and compounds, doTERRA is dedicated to distributing only the purest and highest quality oils available.

When you use a bottle of doTERRA essential oil, you’re using an oil that is pure. There are no contaminants, fillers, or adulterations. The essential oil industry did not have standards to ensure purity, so doTERRA created one. 

Every batch of doTERRA essential oils goes through a rigorous testing process—well beyond what would be considered “good enough.”


After that, each oil is sent to an independent third party for further testing and validation. If an oil passes this testing it's then given the label of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG).

Responsible Sourcing & Sustainability

doTERRA strive to ensure that each and every oil it produces is sustainably and ethically sourced. 

That's why they choose to avoid using cheaper, cost-saving oils and instead source their plants directly from the regions of the world in which the grow best, and from the farmers that grow them locally. 

As a large portion of these farmers live in the developing world, doTERRA created the Co-Impact Sourcing Initiative and the following 8 principles to ensure responsible practices in all of their sourcing communities:

  1. Generating Jobs: Reduce poverty by creating and sustaining jobs

  2. Providing Fair, On-Time Payments: Offer consistent, fair payments to producers, including prepayments.

  3. Building Supplier Capacity: Support farmers, producers, and distillers through training and financial support.

  4. Sustaining Long-Term Partnerships: Provide multi-year contracts with growers and distillers based on solidarity and respect.

  5. Ensuring Fair Labor Conditions: Create healthy and safe working environments, free from harassment and discrimination.

  6. Promoting Cooperatives: Guarantee respect the right for all employees and producers to join and form co-operatives.

  7. Furthering Environmental Stewardship: Promote energy efficient technologies, renewable energy, and waste minimization.

  8. Facilitating Community Development: Support community development projects in sourcing communities such as schools, health clinics, training facilities, and clean water systems.

Humanitarian Outreach Programs

doTERRA Healing Hands was formed in June of 2012 as a way of reaching out to and serving global communities in need.


Healing Hands partners with organizations and doTERRA wellness advocates to offer hope to millions of people around the world: freeing lives from poverty and disease, and empowering communities across the world with the tools they need to become self-reliant.

Three Ways to Use Oils in Everyday Life

Topical Oil Use (Edit).jpg


The "Topical" application of Essential Oils involves the direct application of oils to your skin. Some examples of this include:

  • Massage

  • Adding oils to lotions and moisturizers.

  • Directly rubbing oils onto targeted areas.

Aeromatic Oil Use (Edit).jpg


Any application method that allows you to experience the aroma of oils is considered an "aromatic" application. You can use oils aromatically by:

  • Diffusing them in a diffuser.

  • Applying a drop to your hand and inhaling.

  • Wearing the oils as a personal fragrance.

Internal Oil Use.jpg


Because of the high level of purity of doTERRA's oils, many of them can be taken internally. Once you've confirmed that an oil is safe for internal use, you can:

  • Apply a few drops under your tongue.

  • Load them into vegetable capsules.

  • Add them to a glass of water.
