Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade
In every class and one on one I teach, I hear people telling me they love essential oils and use them all the time. When I ask them what brand of oils they buy and where they get them from, they often tell me they are unaware of the brand name, and they purchase the oils either on Amazon, or at Whole Foods, or even TJ Maxx!
Without being the bearer of bad news, I am here to urge you to please stop buying your oils in this way. Not all oils are created equal and quality absolutely does matter when it comes to using these beautiful plants for all of the many therapeutic applications for which they can help us.
doTERRA makes the world’s highest quality essential oils. When you choose doTERRA, 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 doTERRA 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 doTERRA 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 most common method of extracting essential oils is a low-heat steam distillation process. In this process, pressurized steam is circulated through plant material. The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected. To ensure the highest quality oil extract with the correct chemical composition, the temperature and pressure must be closely monitored. Too little heat or pressure and the oil will not release; too much, and the oil’s composition and potency will be affected.
