Beginning dōTERRA’s Charity Organization
Having experienced the life-enriching power of essential oils, a group of health-care and business professionals collaborated with a common goal of creating a new standard of essential oils that would influence individuals and communities around the world. In the spring of 2008, their vision became a reality and dōTERRA, meaning “gift of the Earth,” was founded. Since the company’s beginning, high-quality essential oils sourced and distributed by dōTERRA have spread throughout the globe, enhancing many lives.
In addition to sharing essential oils with the world, dōTERRA aspired to serve people and communities with the resources they had. Initially, this meant donating to charities, fundraisers, and community projects, but it eventually grew to be much more. The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation was created in June 2012 as an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The foundation is one of the ways dōTERRAreaches out and serves communities in need. They do this by partnering with organizations and dōTERRA Wellness Advocates to offer hope to millions around the world. Through the foundation’s efforts, lives are freed of disease and poverty, and communities are empowered with the tools needed to become self-reliant.
Sustaining the Foundation
As is common with many non-profits, maintaining a constant flow of money and resources can be difficult. In order to provide sufficient funds for the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, the founders of dōTERRA conceived a plan to sustainably raise money for the new organization and maximize its effect on individuals and communities worldwide. Donations to the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation can be made in any of the following ways.
Donations can be made online through the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation Make a Donation page.
Donations can be made by adding a recurring monthly donation to a Loyalty Rewards Order.
Donations of any amount can be added to an order when purchasing dōTERRA product.
Rose Oil Lotion Sales
All proceeds of Rose Oil Lotion go directly to the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation.
dōTERRA chose Rose Oil Lotion as a product donation because of its unique value. This lotion is infused with Rose essential oil, which is known as the “Queen of essential oils.” Rose essential oil is a labor-intensive oil that requires the extraction of 242,000 rose petals from 8,000 roses to produce only 5 mL of essential oil.
Because of its many benefits and its intense extraction process, Rose oil is rare and valuable. dōTERRA chose this Rose oil infused lotion to donate and represent the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation because it embodies the value of the Foundation.
Hope Oil Sales
All proceeds of the doTERRA Hope Blend go directly to the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation.
The dōTERRA Hope Blend was released at the 2016 dōTERRA Convention, alongside the announcement that nonprofit organization Operation Underground Railroad (OUR Rescue) had been established as an official partner of the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation. OUR Rescue is dedicated to rescuing children around the world from sex trafficking and slavery. In 2016 alone, dōTERRA donated $500,000 to the organization.
The blend was originally manufactured solely for OUR Rescue to distribute to at-risk children. The original oil label peeled-back to reveal a list of hotline numbers so that at-risk children could call for help.
Due to the high demand of the dōTERRA Hope Blend at its release, however, it was determined that this blend would be available for individual sale as well. Although the blend was repackaged for sale to remove the peel back feature, the original oil with the original label continues to be donated to OUR Rescue by dōTERRA to promote the efforts of their organization.
The first donations from the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation went toward a microcredit lending fund through the nonprofit organization Mentors International. Through this fund, and the additional funds that have been created over the years, credit is provided to small business owners that do not have access to financing opportunities or whose only lending options are with unethical and even dangerous lenders. The partnership between the dōTERRAHealing Hands Foundation and Mentors International provides hard-working entrepreneurs with small business loans and education to help them succeed in their business. These loans offer opportunities for personal and family growth and can help them elevate their communities through economic development.
Days for Girls
Days for Girls works to provide every girl in the world the education, safety, and dignity that they deserve through direct distribution of sustainable feminine hygiene kits; by partnering with nonprofits, groups, and organizations; by raising awareness; and by helping communities around the world start their own programs. Thanks to a global grassroots network of thousands of volunteers and supporters on six continents, Days for Girls has reached women and girls in over 100 countries.
Operation Underground Railroad
The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is proud to be partnering with Operation Underground Railroad (OUR Rescue) to bring healing and hope to the world. OUR Rescue exists to rescue children from sex trafficking by utilizing some of the world’s experts in extraction operations and anti-child trafficking efforts.
OUR Rescue’s Jump Team, consisting of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives, lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts to rescue children being trafficked for sex. To ensure perpetuity and sustainability of these extraction efforts, OUR Rescue works with law enforcement in the countries where they rescue children to ensure that everything is done legally and with the support of the local authorities.
The children rescued from these extraction efforts are then rehabilitated by OUR Rescue’s aftercare program, and the perpetrators are arrested, tried, and convicted to ensure that they don’t traffic children again.
Wellness Advocate Partner Projects
In addition to microcredit lending, the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation focuses on programs and organizations that work to improve sanitation and water availability, health care, and educational opportunities.
