When I was training in kinesiology I learnt about the amazing power of pure essential oils and how they have been used for thousands of years to treat all kinds of conditions. Today we have the power of science to back up why these plant concentrates have such potent effects on the human body. It wasn't until I started The Healing Project though, that I began to look for a high quality product I could be sure would benefit my clients.
It was then that I learned the awful truth about the vast majority of the essential oil industry. It has been estimated that only 1% of the oils produced are actually pure, and by that I mean nothing else in the bottle, but also in the way the plants are grown, harvested and processed. Plants grown with the use of pesticides, stored incorrectly after harvest and then extracted with chemicals such as hexol can all produce essential oils that are more harmful than beneficial. Not to mention what goes into the bottle along with the essential oil in a lot of cases: synthetic fragrances, cheap filler oils and other chemical extenders such as ethyl alcohol and dipropylene glycol.
One of the worst parts in all of this is you just can't tell by what's on the label. In Australia the labelling laws for essential oils are such that the product only has to contain 3% actual essential oil for it to be labelled pure or 100% on the bottle. Add to that only 1% of that 3% needs to come from an organic source and the manufacturer can write organic on the label too. In all of this, how do you know who to trust?
That was when I found doTERRA® Essential Oils. Backed by an incredible science team plus rigorous batch testing, this completely ethical global company is one I have been proud to be a part of ever since. Their oils are really 100% pure and they have publicly available test results for every batch available online. This purity is known as Certified Pure Therpeutic Grade (CPTG®). Add to this their farmers grow organically, even in countries where there is no certification available for this. They are harvested and, if necessary, processed on site within hours. They are never, ever extracted with anything except steam or, in the case of citrus oils, cold pressing. If a doTERRA® bottle says CPTG® oil, that is what you get, and boy can you tell the difference!
