doTERRA Essential Oils - Why I Chose doTERRA Over Other Brands

I’ve been using doTERRA essential oils for 1 year! I have tried many different brands to find out what I would like best, but when I started using doTERRA, I started noticing a huge difference!


I think it’s awesome that so many people are using herbs and essential oils.  The testimonials from people who have used an oil and seen a drastic improvement are awesome to see.  I think it’s so great that people are turning to essential oils and natural healing and away from over-the-counter, synthetic drugs!  I love helping people live a better and healthier version of themselves!



Why I Love doTERRA

1. Purity
doTERRA wanted to create a purity level that goes above and beyond organic. So they created an internal standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade
They test their oils in 7 different ways to ensure that they are pure and safe for therapeutic use.  

Organic certification varies from country to country and state to state.  doTERRA essential oils are sourced all over the world, so that is why organic certification is not possible.  One of the ways they ensure their oils are free of pesticide, herbicide, extenders and solvents is through the GC/MS analysis process.

The smell test is a good indicator of purity.  They are not “first distillation“.  Essential oils SHOULD smell good. 

2. Third-Party Testing
doTERRA uses Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) quality testing on every batch of essential oils.  A company that uses an IN-HOUSE lab would be something that should concern everyone, but not doTERRA…So you can trust the quality of their oils!

While some companies just do GS/MS testing, doTERRA takes it many steps further with 7 other additional tests.  These tests ensure that each bottle is free of contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, and pollutants.  It also ensures that the oils are the correct composition which is important to their therapeutic benefits.  When you purchase a bottle of doTERRA essential oil, you can look up your specific bottle’s quality report yourself. Just type in the batch number found on the bottom of every bottle to access a downloadable PDF with the rating.

3. Co – Impact Sourcing
Some things are better to get outside of the United States, where they grow the best. doTERRA carefully selects and sources their essential oils from where it grows at it’s prime! 

One aspect that affects quality is sourcing and doTERRA works hard to make sure they create a high quality, sustainable product. doTERRA has introduced an initiative called co-impact sourcing that seeks to develop long term mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. This eliminates the need for third parties and has an immediate positive impact on the community as well. doTERRA also works to improve the quality of life for the families in these communities through their work in the non-profit organization Healing Hands Foundation. Some of their projects have included providing clean water wells, building and revitalizing schools and clinics and providing medical equipment for hospitals. 



4. Driven by Charity
“The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is dōTERRA International’s registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to improving lives through partnering with organizations that offer hope to millions around the world. Healing Hands seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. dōTERRA International, LLC provides for all overhead and administrative costs of the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, ensuring that 100 percent of all donations go directly to those receiving aid.”

You have the option of donating to the Healing Hands foundation every time you order! 


5. Education Based Platform
The education and ongoing support that you get with doTERRA is incredible. I have learned so much about essential oils, the safety of them, and the proper way to use them. My team and upline have educational team calls that you can join in and participate in. There is so many online tools that you can use if you would like to make a business out of doTERRA. I’m in a hundred Facebook groups that share and educate on using essential oils. There is so much support and that is what I love about the company.

When I was using store-bought essential oils, I had ZERO support. I had no one to go to and talk to about how to use the oils.

doTERRA is committed to educating everyone about essential oils. They promote education first before promoting their brand. That is a business motto I wholeheartedly value. Their websites are wonderful resources for novices to professionals. No matter the point in your essential oil journey, doTERRA can help. They frequently hold educational webinars full of valuable information as well. 

6. Quality, Not Quantity 
What’s better?  Quality or Quantity  At this time doTERRA doesn’t have a ton of oils  The reason for this is because doTERRA will not compromise their quality for their quantity. This is why many oils have come and gone.  doTERRA is always looking for a more sustainable and reliable source that is high in quality.   I would rather have a limited quantity of AMAZING oils than a large quantity of low-quality oils.


7. The Business Model
The compensation plan of doTERRA is incredible! It’s extremely generous!  I was able to pay off student loans and then some. In less than 10 months, I achieved the rank of Diamond in doTERRA.  I did NOT expect to achieve diamond that quickly, nor did I set out to do that. But once I started sharing with how essential oils were changing my life, people started jumping on board and my team grew enormously!  Send me a message if you want to know more!  

8. Easily Accessible Information
Not only is their quality information easy to access, but so is their research information.  Most often, when I see information being shared from doTERRA, it is often by a scientist or medical doctor.  The essential oil field is growing and I love how committed doTERRA is to further research.  


9. The Rewards
doTERRA rewards their members in various ways.  All members receive a 25% discount on products and exclusive access to promotions and product launches.  If you choose to enroll in the Loyalty Rewards program, you receive even more benefits such as up to 30% of your purchases back as points to use toward free products and the ability to earn the product of the month.  If you choose to share doTERRA with others as a Wellness Advocate you get the ability to earn commissions, the support of an amazing team and access to free business tools and resources.  It is one of the few companies that doesn’t charge you a monthly fee for your own personalized website.
