How do you use oils?
Aromatically for aroma therapy:
-Breath in or diffuse
-Kills threats in the air
-Replace synthetic fragrance in the home
Internally (only CPTG) for dietary support:
-Under the tongue, in water or a gel capsule
-Relieves issues with digestive system, mouth, throat and liver.
Topically for health and wellness purposes:
-Apply to the head, feet, ears, chest, back of the neck and/or trouble areas
-From bottom of the feet, enter the bloodstream to affect entire body within 30 seconds.
The more pure the essential oil, the more powerful the results. Many essential oils available to purchase are not pure. Often, they contain fillers or other elements that dilute and alter the purity, thus diminishing the healthful qualities of the oil.
I tried several different brands before doTERRA, I use Young Living for 7 years and I dabbled in plant therapy, butterfly express and health food store brands, and I didn’t think twice about where my oils were coming from or how the earth was being preserved. Then I learned about doTERRA and their sourcing practices:
Plants are grown in their native habitat, CO IMPACT: and harvested at the best time to get all of the oil. Fun fact: Wintergreen grows in a lot of places, but it grows best in Nepal, so that is where doTERRA sources their oils. You can see how it is sourced here.
The oils are ethically sourced: doTERRA sources their oils all over the world (because some plants grow better other places than the United States, obvs), and two-thirds of our sourcing is done in developing countries. Instead of going in and taking over, doTERRA partners with them, allowing them to grow and better their life without taking everything away from them. doTERRA makes sure the growers get fair and on-time payments and also offers profit-sharing programs to the people they work with. We call this “co-impact sourcing”. Click the link to watch a quick video about it! Oh, and doTERRA helps to teach their partners to create cooperatives and preserve farmlands for the future generations. Which leads to the next point:
They love mother earth! Because of both of the above point this make things sustainable meaning working with mother nature instead of against it. doTERRA’s name essentially means, “gift of the earth” and not only do they value their employees, they value the way the plants and oils are treated.
THE DOTERRA DIFFERENCE
Testing. DōTERRA wanted to have transparent accountability so they created an internal standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG)which is verified by 3rd party labs. The name is a trademark but the standard is real and concrete. There is a lot of testing throughout the whole process (such as monitoring soil quality) and 6 tests performed before the final product is bottled. And they test EVERY liter not just random tests here and there. All of the basics are checked first: sight, smell, taste and touch. Then they test to rule out any presence of fungus, mold, pesticides and any other contaminants. What I know, from seeing the detailed way they handle the whole entire process, from the farmer to customer service, is that dōTERRA makes sure every drop is safe and pure.
Humanitarian Efforts: I LOVE that dōTERRA has a non-profit charity. It’s called Healing Hands and it’s funded by members, employees and the executives. We have the option to donate a dollar (or more) each month on our monthly orders and they fund raise in other ways as well, such as events or selling special products such as rose lotion and emergency kits to give back to society. Healing Hands has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for O.U.R Rescue, Days For Girls, and so many more non profit groups that are changing lives. Most recently money was raised for victims of the earthquake in Nepal, and they were there on the ground right away, providing blankets and shelter. This is my FAVORITE part of what doTERRA does. Read more about Healing Hands and their amazing projects HERE.
Vision on Healthcare as a WHOLE: In a nutshell, We are revolutionizing healthcare as we know it with Prime Meridian Healthcare clinics. One of doTERRA's visions is to provide AFFORDABLE preventative healthcare for our concerns and challenges to increase the quality of life. The proposed medical services include: complete primary care, urgent care, wellness coaching, nutrition counseling, essential oil therapies, and genome testing. You can check out more here.
