Testing

doTERRA is committed to providing the highest quality, purest essential oils to the world.

Their harvesting and distillation practices are carried out by co-ops of growers and distillers who have mastered the art of producing the finest essential oils. These co-ops are often made up of families who have done this work for generations. They’ve passed down their expertise, continuing a legacy of knowing where best to grow the botanical materials, when is best to harvest, and how best to distill the oils.

So, innovation does not come in improving the essential oils. Rather, it comes in maximizing the benefits of those oils.

The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. Proper methods of growing, harvesting, and distilling are crucial to maintaining purity.

Current Research and Development Projects

  • The Oil & Genome Project: We have been experimenting on how the essential oils affect the entire genome. Findings will be published when the project is complete

  • Rather than working with a brokerage house, we administer 11 additional tests to maintain the quality and purity of our essential oils.
