Why buy DoTerra Essential Oils

In this article, I will go over the key components that in my opinion make doTERRA the best essential oil producer and why you should trust them for all your essential oil needs. I have been working with essential oils for over 20 years at this point. During that time, I experimented with several brands of essential oils while using Young Living oils as my go-to. A little less than a year ago I was re-introduced to doTERRA and decided to look into this company a little further. The only thing I remembered was the controversial beginning when some higher-level Young Living staff decided to leave and start their own essential oil company. Beyond that, I knew very little. So here are some of the key factors that make these the best essential oils:


When considering any product, I like to know where it came from and how it was sourced. How are workers treated? Are there any chemicals used in the growing or manufacturing process? Is the product quality verifiable?


doTERRA scores top marks in this area. Rather than buy land and grow it’s own flowers and plants, doTERRA seeks out local growers who are experts in their field, and creates partnerships with them. This helps doTERRA employ hundreds of workers in often impoverished areas around the globe.

Real living wages allow workers to support their families. doTERRA provides further support and security by building medical centers and fixing schools in those villages. Read more about doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing.


Once the flowers, leaves, stems, bark, etc… are harvested, they are taken to local specialized distilleries. The distillation process can be the difference between a high-quality oil that contains all the benefits nature intended or a sub-standard oil that only smells good. Each plant has its own characteristics and often its own ideal distillation temperature and pressure. Get the temperature or pressure wrong and you lose the benefits. doTERRA will often use distilleries that specialize in just one plant, here again guaranteeing the highest quality in the end product.


Here again doTERRA scores high points. Not content with established quality standards, doTERRA has set up its own labs. They created a more demanding quality standard to which they want all their oils to adhere: Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. While that in itself is impressive, every essential oil order you place comes with a batch number which you can use to view the lab report for your oils. Every quart is tested and all quality reports are available on the doTERRA website. Read more about doTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade standard.


From growing all the way to bottling, doTERRA spares no expense and makes no compromises when it comes to quality.

They know that their clients will not accept anything other than perfection when it comes to their oils. These oils will be used by many for therapeutic purposes, applied to the skin or taken internally and there is no room for error.

doTERRA essential oils are 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. The company is constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries in therapeutic grade oils while testing the quality all along the way. No other company I am aware of spends the same amount of resources and money to guarantee traceability, clarity, and the exceptional quality of their product.


What I have listed above are just some of the reasons why I switched to doTERRA after years of enjoying Young Living oils. I did not mention the exceptional customer support or impressive network of experts that are available to you as a doTERRA customer. When you join doTERRA you enter into a global family of essential oil users which range from people experiencing oils for the first time, to naturopaths and doctors who use and trust essential oils in their practice. It is my personal opinion that doTERRA provides the most clarity and testing on each batch of essential oils they produce.


I invite you to join doTERRA today and experience the best essential oils for yourself. You can buy your oils at the public price or wholesale. Wholesale membership costs $35 per year but you get a FREE Peppermint Essential Oil when you join valued at $22 so your yearly Wholesale Membership is really $13.
