Why doTerra

Why is it that so many intuitives who begin to use the doTerra essential oils immediately feel that they are of a much higher vibration than any other oils they have ever come across?  My "why," - why I am so proud to work with such a "pono" company - has to do with what I believe creates that higher vibration.  

Yes, there is more scientific research and rigorous testing for purity and potency that goes way beyond what any other company is doing... and all of that, of course, contributes to the superior quality of doTerra oils.  

But it's actually something else that I believe creates the difference in vibration that can be felt in the doTerra oils. 

You know how sometimes you'll have a simple meal at someone's house and yet it's better than a meal at a fancy restaurant? You know, the kind where you can actually taste the love that went into its preparation?  This is what I believe is happening on a much larger scale with doTerra.  

In order to make essential oils, lots and lots of plant material is needed.  And it is well known that plants grown in their native habitat are much more therapeutically beneficial and potent. 

doTerra has had the inspired vision to source their plants from different growers around the world, where the plants are indigenous, which not only provides superior therapeutic benefit to us, the consumer, but also creates an opportunity for doTerra to do so much good all around the world. A big part of the company’s MISSION is to lift entire communities out of poverty.  I know of no other essential oil company that has this as a focus on such a huge scale. 

They have sought out partnerships with farmers, harvesters and distillers across the globe, many of which are in third world countries.  These plants have been the lifeblood of these families for generations. These farmers were suffering at the hands of corrupt middle-men and not earning enough to feed their families throughout the year, harvesting plants early in order to get paid to put food on the table.  doTerra saw an opportunity here. By working directly with farmers, they cut out the middlemen and guarantee fair and on-time payments throughout the year as well as incentives for higher quality.  

Through this Co-Impact Sourcing initiative doTerra is creating a win-win.  The farmers are able to take pride because they are valued for their expertise and we wind up with the highest quality oil.  Please take a moment to watch this short video and if you'd like to know more, continue watching the playlist or scroll down to the bottom of this page for country-specific videos.  




The Source to You website is exceptional at taking you through the beautiful journey of how these oils come to be so pure, high quality... and high vibration.




Through their Healing Hands Foundation, doTerra is funding countless projects to uplift the communities where our plants are grown: building schools in Somalia, Guatemala, and Nepal, mobile health clinics in Madagascar, micro-lending for the wives of the farmers to start their own businesses, and countless other projects including: 

Bulgaria Project

The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is pleased to support Esseterre Bulgaria in a project involving the Social Teahouse, a Bulgarian social enterprise dedicated to creating equal opportunities and the development of an independent lifestyle for children in Bulgaria as they age out of the orphanage system. Read more…

Guatemala Project 

In the Polochic region of Guatemala where doTERRA sources Cardamom essential oil, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation funded the construction of the Sika’abe Training Center. This center works to break the cycle of poverty by teaching skills such as construction, agriculture, and hospitality in courses that are government certified. Read more…

Haiti Project 

With a desire to increase water accessibility, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation began drilling for water in Haiti and installing solar-powered pumps. Not only do these communities now have access to clean water, but the children are able to attend school instead of making the long walk to collect water every day. 

Madagascar Project 

Reliable healthcare can be difficult to come by in the area of Madagascar where doTERRA sources some of their Ylang Ylang oil. For this reason, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is working with Fairoils to bring health to the people by establishing a mobile health clinic. Read more…

Nepal Project 

When the 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal in April 2015, doTERRA and CHOICE Humanitarian were hard at work on a new Co-Impact Sourcing initiative for Wintergreen essential oil. Through a matching campaign between doTERRA and donors, almost $636,000 was raised for earthquake relief. Read more…

Somaliland Project

The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation has assisted in the education efforts for clan children in Uurwayne, Somaliland. This project is providing education opportunities for more than 220 youth. Read more…

Here's doTerra's global footprint, all of the places around the world where doTerra is making a difference in the lives of farmers, families and entire communities. I truly believe that all of this this goodwill and caring that is born through these beautiful relationships that are formed translate into LOVE that can be sensed and felt and experienced in the very powerful therapeutic essential oil that we hold in our hands. 


One of the most impactful moments at the doTerra convention this year was getting to witness the best $500,000 ever spent.  Dave Stirling, the most heart-centered CEO I can imagine, handed a check to Tim Ballard, the founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad, an organization that is saving children from sex trafficking around the world.  Please take a moment to watch and join me in donating to this amazing organization!  (I'll be blogging more about them soon.)



It's ironic that doTerra's main competitor takes pride in owning their own farms.  They produce many of their plants on huge plots of land along the side of the highway in Utah, when it is demonstrated that the chemical profile of plants grown in their indigenous habitat shows them to be much more therapeutically beneficial and potent.  When we purchase our doTerra oils we are not only getting higher quality, but we can also know that in the course of operations that went into producing these oils many many peoples' lives were uplifted.  


Have you ever considered that your spending has the power to change the world for the better - however small your purchase?  



About doTerra

In the spring of 2008, a group of healthcare and business professionals who shared profound personal experiences of the life-enhancing benefits of essential oils came together with a common vision of bringing a new standard of therapeutic-grade essential oils to the world. They wanted something different that would appeal to all people, from those who knew nothing of essential oils to those who were considered the experts in the field.

They asked themselves some defining questions—"What if we could provide the world with a new and powerful wellness alternative?" "What if we could provide this new level of wellness through a mainstream approach to essential oils?" "What if we could source, test, and manufacture a higher quality of essential oil more pure and more potent than any other oil available on the market today?" "What if we, in a most professional manner, could partner with major hospitals, doctors, scientists, and opinion leaders to provide the most compelling authentication of essential oils on the planet?"

They concluded that, with the hard work and commitment of others with a similar passion and vision, they could and would create a new paradigm for essential oils. With that conviction, they organized a company and named it doTerra, a Latin derivative meaning "Gift of the Earth." doTerra first offering of 25 single oils and 10 oil blends were introduced for sale on April 25, 2008 to the acclaim of essential oil experts and product enthusiasts who immediately recognized the superior quality of doTerra therapeutic-grade essential oils at first experience.

doTerra has a vision of providing health & prosperity to every individual, family, and community in the world.  I feel blessed to be a involved with this noble movement. Thanks to doTerra, so many people are experiencing more physical, emotional, spiritual and financial wellness.  doTerra is deeply committed to all of their customers and Wellness Advocates, vowing to provide the highest quality essential oils and products.
