Our company was founded in 2008, with a commitment to establishing patterns of giving. There are no outside investors; the founders personally funded the startup and own 100% of the company. Back then, they took second mortgages, scaled back and worked without pay for years to own their work and make their own choices. doTERRA is now the largest oil company in the world, debt-free. Here is a sweet introduction to one of my personal heroes, Emily Wright.
We are family-focused and empowerment-centric. Mamas, babies and families are welcomed, encouraged and supported at classes and conferences. One of the seven founders, Emily Wright, is a mother of four; her commitment to our families is palpable. Personally, I’ve seen dozens of families on our growing team pay off long-held debts as they teach other families how to use Essential Oils, earning their way to more financial freedom.
We give back.Healing Handsis our non-profit foundation, funded by the members, employees and executives of the company. We have an option to donate as little or as much as we wish with each order, and certain products are earmarked only for Healing Hands – our Hope Touch roller and our Rose Hand Lotion.
Our Oils are of the highest quality.Pure, high quality, optimally-sourced Oils are at the heart of our success. Working with smallholder farmers, we ensure that these families are able to maintain their traditionsandoptimize growing and harvesting practices, form cooperatives for more bargaining power, eliminate middlemen, and get paid on time. In the villages where we grow, harvest and distill our Oils, we help renovate and build schools, much-needed medical facilities and infrastructure for clean water. As a result, the farmers are equally as committed to us. Visit Source to You for detailed information on sourcing, quality and testing of our Oils, including our projects in Bulgaria, Kenya, Madagascar, Nepal, Guatemala, Haiti, Somaliland and beyond.
Our testing practices are stringent. For transparent accountability, we’ve created a standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG), verified by respected third party labs. This standard is based on stringent testing throughout the entire process, from the monitoring of soil quality to testing for chemicals and adulterants in every litre of Oil. All of the basics are checked first: sight, smell, taste and touch. Then the lab rules out any presence of fungus, mold, pesticides, extenders and any other contaminants. If you wish to learn more, the science of the testing practices is here.
Each location has its own specific laws and rules governing agriculture and collecting wild-crafted botanicals. If an Oil fails the test, there is no secondary process for removing the pesticides or foreign matter; that batch is simply rejected. Other than the careful distillation of the Oils from the plant material, *no other processing takes place.* In each bottle, you are experiencing aromatic extracts, nothing added, nothing removed.
We are helping you clear your home of toxic products and chemicals. Harsh, toxic chemicals have no place in your cleaning and family care. From On Guard Cleaner Concentrate, Detergent, Hand Soap, Toothpaste, Mouthwash, and bar soap to all the Oils.I use to diffuse and clean the air in our home, the plant molecules provide natural protection in a non-toxic and biodegradable way, to clean and keep us safe.
