Aromatherapy Oils for Body and Home
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in many plants. These oils are distilled from plant parts then bottled for individual consumption. Some oils are sold as single oils; however, essential oils are often combined into blends for products including personal care, nutritional supplements, cleaning and healthy living products.
Essential oils have been used for over a thousand years, but we are just scratching the surface of their potential. In the past, knowledge of essential oils was solely based off anecdotal experience. However, scientific research of essential oils has increased exponentially. In the last decade, there have been more studies published about essential oils than in the last 500 years combined.
Gift of the Earth
Founded in 2008, doTERRA’s mission from the beginning was to share therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world. A group of healthcare and business professionals in the US set out to make that mission a reality. They formed a company and named it doTERRA, 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 previously. The doTERRA founders were committed to providing only the purest, highest-grade essential oils. This commitment led to the creation of a new standard of therapeutic quality: CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. Every doTERRA oil meets this standard of purity. doTERRA sources, tests, manufactures, and distributes essential oils and related products to over five million doTERRA Wellness Advocates and customers. Company products are sold in 18 international markets and counting.
