Essential Oils are found in plant material taken from the root, stems, bark and leaves. They help to form the plant’s own immunity and defence against microbes, bacteria, fungus, insects, and disease, as well as being the fluid that regenerates and heals the plant.
Our bodies are made of similar building blocks as plants, so when we use the oils they go to work in our bodies in the same way they would for the plant.
Why are Essential Oils so Effective? They have the ability to pass through the cell membrane, due to their lipophilic properties. They can therefore penetrate cells in our body to help fight viruses and to help our bodies heal. Prescription drugs and antibiotics cannot do this, which makes essential oils a great natural alternative without side effects.
dōTERRA’s 30 committed scientists continue to push the boundaries of rigor in essential oil testing to be the best in the world. The guarantee is purity and potency to an exceptional standard free from artificial ingredients, fillers, and pesticides.
Dr Robert Pappass – The President/Technical Director at the Essential Oil University Independent Testing says… “dōTERRA is the leading company in the world right now, no one else goes to the lengths dōTERRA do to ensure the purity of grade.”
Important note: Please do not confuse these oils with similar looking oils often found in stores. These oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Oils. According to government standards, an essential oil can be labelled as “100% pure” and still legally contain up to 92% fillers and synthetics. Many oils found on the market, including Health food stores, are of a low quality.
