A Higher Standard
If you are looking to buy essential oils, you’re probably making some lifestyle changes—including swapping your traditional synthetic products with naturally sourced alternatives. So, what happens when the essential oils you buy still have the synthetic chemicals you are trying to avoid?
The truth is, not all essential oils are created equally. Many essential oils on the market are heavily contaminated or adulterated with chemicals, often in order to make the product cheaper. The classic phrase, “you get what you pay for” is true for essential oils, too. Cheap prices most often accompany cheap products, full of fillers and synthetic ingredients and additives. When you’re building a lifestyle of wellness free of synthetics, this isn’t exactly what you’re looking for.
Essential oils that are effective and pure are non-negotiable. Purity not only tells you the essential oil is of the highest-quality, but also that the essential oil will allow you to reap every benefit nature has to offer. That’s why, at doTERRA, we created our own industry standard for essential oil purity: CPTG®.
CPTG® essential oils go through a variety of tests that check for contaminants and verify the purity of the essential oil. After passing in-house tests, doTERRA essential oils are sent to a third party for further testing. doTERRA essential oils meet this rigorous standard, because quality is non-negotiable for us, too. When you see the CPTG label, you know you are using the best essential oils on the market.
doTERRA essential oils are different—and with just one drop, you’ll understand why.

Put doTERRA to the Test
doTERRA isn’t an exception to the rule—we want you to ask the hard questions about us, too. Here are our answers:
Sustainability and Sourcing
Every doTERRA essential oil is carefully sourced from regions where its parent-plant thrives. Once a location is identified, doTERRA partners with local farmers and distillers to create an impact that lasts far beyond the essential oil itself. This sustainable, responsible sourcing method is called Cō-Impact Sourcing®.

In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils doTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production.
With more than 140 origin oils in its product line, doTERRA sources its oils from over 45 countries—more than half of which could be considered developing countries. To ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, doTERRA has introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing.
Co-Impact Sourcing creates shared value for all stakeholders in the supply chain by being at the source and intentionally implementing environmental stewardship and/or social impact initiatives. Co-Impact Sourcing seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.
Additionally, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation helps support development projects in sourcing communities. Projects include schools, health clinics, improved infrastructure and clean water systems.
