dōTERRA is a Latin derivative and means “Gift of the Earth.” All of the essential oils and related products that dōTERRA provides come from our beautiful, natural Mother Earth.
ESSENTIAL OIL STANDARDS
No real standards exist in the United States essential oil industry: there is no standards body that governs the industry and mandates ingredients, quality and testing. Early on the founders of dōTERRA identified the lack of standards as a critical missing component and created the Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG) standard. dōTERRA CPTG® essential oils are pure, natural, aromatic compounds that are carefully extracted from plants. Each essential oil that dōTERRA provides goes through careful and precise testing using the CPTG protocol. They go through these tests to ensure that dōTERRA’s essential oils are both pure and potent. “Certified Pure” means that the extracts (essential oils) contain only the volatile aromatic compounds of the plant—there are no substances added or taken away; and that the extracts have a consistent chemical composition from batch to batch, meaning you are getting the same oil with the same benefits every time.
