You may think that dōTERRA is just a company that sells essential oils and natural products however, we would like to invite you to learn a little bit of information in what sets dōTERRA apart from other essential oils companies.
Founded in 2008, dōTERRA’s mission from the beginning was to share the highest quality essential oils with the world. Having seen the incredible benefits of using these precious resources, a group of healthcare and business professionals set out to make that mission a reality. They formed a company and named it dōTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.”
The first hurdle they needed to overcome was to establish a quality standard in an industry that had never had one. The dōTERRA founders were committed to providing only the purest, highest-grade essential oils. This commitment led to the creation of a new standard of quality: CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. Every dōTERRA oil is held to the highest possible level of purity.
Now, dōTERRA means more than “Gift of the Earth.” It means wellness, healing and hope.
In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils dōTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to dōTERRA’s oil production.
With more than 140 origin oils in its product line, dōTERRA 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, dōTERRA 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. dōTERRA 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.
