The dōTERRA Difference

When you choose dōTERRA , you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy.

Each dōTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade dōTERRA essential oils.

While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques.

The dōTERRA Difference

While others in the essential oil industry cut corners during the planting, growing, and harvesting process, or even try to “extend” pure oils by adding less expensive ingredients, dōTERRA is uncompromisingly selective.


Spikenard is native to high altitudes in the sub-alpine and alpine regions of the Himalayan mountains. Historically, Spikenard has been used to uplift mood, promote relaxation, support healthy cardiovascular function, and to promote smooth, healthy skin. dōTERRA supports income streams for harvesters and partner distillers as well as supports needed rural community development projects.


Petitgrain essential oil is derived from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree, which has a long history of use in traditional health practices. By sourcing Petitgrain from Paraguay, dōTERRA supports rural community development projects, provides diversified income streams for producers, and contributes positively to the biodiversity challenges facing the country.

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—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.

Unique and Unrivaled

dōTERRA’s extensive sourcing partnerships empower dōTERRA to produce exclusive, proprietary oils and blends that preserve the purity and potency of each plant. Eighty-four percent of dōTERRA single oils and oil blends are exclusive, ensuring that essential oil users receive a product that is truly unique and unrivaled.

Through dōTERRA’s Global Botanical Network of farmers and essential oil producers, dōTERRA has leveraged the experience of skilled partners around the world to create the optimal supply chain for production, distillation, and distribution, enabling dōTERRA to supply these essential oils directly to you and your loved ones.

dōTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing

When dōTERRA looks for sourcing partnerships, we deliberately choose locations where we can improve the individual, social, economic, and environmental well-being, while producing the highest quality essential oils.

As many of our essential oils grow best in developing countries, dōTERRA is in a unique position to build and support ethical supply chains that benefit rural communities in need.

Oftentimes, experienced essential oil farmers, harvesters, growers, and distillers in underdeveloped areas are paid unfairly or taken advantage of, limiting their ability to escape poverty. Co-Impact Sourcing provides the tools needed to help lift these families and communities out of poverty and promote economic development. dōTERRA adheres to additional Sourcing Guiding Principles when working in developing nations.


dōTERRA sources Wintergreen essential oil from the remotest regions of the Himalayan foothills of Nepal where growing conditions are optimal.

dōTERRA is committed to ensuring sustainable harvesting practices are used, and in communities where wintergreen is wild-harvested, our partners have formed Forest Community User Groups to collectively own and oversee forest areas.


Harvesting Spikenard can be extremely labor intensive and difficult as the harvesters must climb the hills of the Himalayas to reach the best Spikenard.

The harvesters will only take part of the plant, and then must re-plant its remains in order to sustain the growth of Spikenard in this Northeast Region of Nepal. This initiative is expanding our impact in Nepal.

Madagascar-Ylang ylang

One of the biggest struggles ylang ylang growers and harvesters face is receiving fair treatment, particularly when dealing with middlemen.

Through the dōTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing partnership with distillers and harvesters on the island of Nosy Be, those who are working to produce Ylang ylang essential oil can receive proper compensation for their efforts.


dōTERRA launched a Co-Impact Sourcing Initiative in the Haitian commune of Les Cayes. This Co-Impact Sourcing Initiative aims to solve the issue of disorganization among farmers, by forming cooperatives.


Petitgrain oil has been a part of the Paraguayan heritage for centuries due to the abundance of rain and land to grow it on.

Previously, there was a low demand for Petitgrain, but dōTERRA’s interest in it has sparked an interest among farmers and re-ignited their desire to get involved in the Petitgrain industry again.


Most of the world’s supply of cardamom is grown for the spice market, with only one percent of cardamom distilled for its essential oil.

The market is so unstable and saturated with middlemen that farmers have a hard time making enough money to be able to sustain quality cardamom production.

 You and your family deserve only the most pure, potent, and effective oils on earth. dōTERRA takes great pride in sourcing them to you.
