Who are doTERRA?
doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth”, started as a group of health care and business professionals who began with the mission of sharing therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world because of how incredibly powerful they knew essential oils to be. doTERRA was founded in 2008, and just 7 months later they reached their first $1 million in sales, which is a pretty awesome feat in and of itself. By 2014, doTERRA had hit 1,000,000 Wellness Advocates who not only stood by these oils but the company as well.
I mention these things because it goes to show how fast doTERRA has been and continues to grow. The main reason for the companies success is because of their 68% retention rate compared to the industry average retention rate of just 10%. An important thing to note as well is doTERRA’s standing to quality through making sure all essential oils sold are 100% CPTG: Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade.
What is CPTG?
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade means that the oil is
- Pure and natural, with aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants
- Free from fillers or artificial ingredients; no dilution of active qualities
- Free of contaminants, pesticides, or chemical residues
- Rigorously tested for standards of chemical composition
- Cross tested using mass spectrometry and gas chromatography to ensure exact purity and composition potency
- Sourced by a global network of leading essential oil chemists and growers to ensure correct species, growth in ideal environments, and that raw plant materials were carefully harvested at the right time
How do you use Essential Oils?
Aromatically – Through inhaling the scent from the palm of your hands or diffusing essential oils they are quickly absorbed by the smell receptors in the nose which are linked to the limbic system through the olfactory nerve. It is in the limbic system that things like smell, emotions, behaviour, and memory come from. This is why scent has such a powerful effect on us because it very quickly connects us to one of these things just mentioned.
Topically – Using the oils in this way is very effective for localised benefit. The oils are of low molecular weight and are lipid soluble which means they are easily penetrated through the skin for quick absorption. To decrease the likelihood of developing a skin sensitivity, especially on young or sensitive skin, it is advisable to use a carrier oil (such as Fractionated Coconut Oil) to dilute more potent oils and when trying an oil for the first time. The recommend dilution ratio is typically one drop of essential oil to three drops of carrier oil.
Internally – (Not recommended for non-CPTG oils) Since essential oils are concentrated forms of plants, essential oils can be used as dietary supplements for more targeted and potent health benefits. This method of use is safe and very effective as long as you use the correct oils. When ingested, the oils enter directly into the blood stream via the gastrointestinal tract, where they are then transported throughout the rest of the body.
Purchasing Retail vs Wholesale
There are two ways in which you can purchase doTERRA’s essential oils, retail and wholesale. Anyone can purchase through retail by visiting the doTERRA site or here (click the “shop” tab) which is handy if you just want one or two oils/products and that’s about it.
Secondly, and the smartest way to buy, you can open a wholesale account where you pay $35, which is waved if you open an account with an enrolment kit, and get 25% off for every single product and oil doTERRA has. This is a much more economical choice if you plan on replacing household chemicals, toxic-skincare, and supporting your health and moods. You will have to re-new your account once per year but with the $35 fee you will also receive a 15ml Peppermint essential oil worth $34 got free. You can open a wholesale account here (click the “join and save” tab) or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can help you with the process.
