What is an Essential Oil?
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. Uses vary between topically, diffusing & inhalation/aromatherapy to enhance & uplift moods!
Essential oils are naturally occurring, powerful aromatic compounds that hold incredible benefits for our health and well-being. Improving on what nature has already created can be largely a fool’s errand. Nature knows what our bodies need, and has already provided those resources to us.

Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.

While the temptation for a company as large as dōTERRA may be to buy large plots of land and mass produce oils, dōTERRA places great value on the expert knowledge of local farmers, artisan growers & distillers—many of whom have nurtured essential oil plants for generations. dōTERRA recruits their expertise into a Global Botanical Network and, in so doing, responsibly supports thousands of jobs around the world.
dōTerra's Bigger Purpose & Giving Back

dōTERRA is also highly involved with Operation Underground Railroad - the non-profit founded by a former CIA agent & Navy Seal that intervenes & prevents the sex-trafficking of children in 3rd world countries.
