Why dōTERRA? First of all, let me start off by saying dōTERRA is growing exponentially each year in sales because they filled a need. That need was for essential oils to have a scientific standard of testing and regulation available to the public.
There is currently no regulation on any of the essential oils sold in store or used in products (yes, even natural ones). Often they contain fillers, synthetics, or other unknown substances and are not 100% a pure oil. To bring this point home, I want to share with you that dōTERRA is the brand John Hopkins University chooses to conducts their essential oil research with. This study about the effectiveness of essential oils against antibiotic resistant bacteria was done using dōTERRA oils.
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their many benefits. Modern scientific study and trends towards more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications.
dōTERRA (CPTG)® essential oils represent the safest, purest, and most beneficial essential oils available today. They are gently and skilfully 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. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize dōTERRA’s superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective CPTG essential oils.
How legitimate are essential oils? Are they truly beneficial? Are modern forms of medicine more legitimate and effective?
Believe it or not, most forms of modern-day medication started by scientists, researchers, and pharmaceutical companies extracting the beneficial properties of essential oils. In other words, the vast majority of pharmaceutical drugs that we have today actually started as essential oils that were harvested from plants and other sources. In order to patent products, pharmaceutical companies create synthetic versions.
