So many reasons, let me explain a few... but here is the simplest
Not all oils are made the same...
As someone who had been working hard at my own hormone health, and understanding more about how our hormones and whole health can be directly affected by chemicals in so many products, I was reducing the amount of toxicant laden items in my home- for the home, for our bodies and our skin. for everything.
I was not then ok with using oils that had synthetic chemicals in the bottle to then be applied to our skin our diffused into the air we breathe.
Not everyone knows that the essential oil industry is not governed and therefore
Anyone can put between 3-7% of an essential oil in a bottle and label it 100%.
doterra independently test their oils 3 times across 5 tests to ensure their purity.
I was not prepared to use anything less than the best and as a result , we, and my clients have had some of the most incredible and positive experiences using these therapeutic grade oils ..
My son began to sleep after 3 years- our digestive systems supported, no more seasonal issues , but it wasn't just us- many other children no longer experiencing anxious feelings, mummies who could once again function, energy levels supported, muscles and tendons soothed, immune systems boosted... I can go on ad on and on.
There are grades of oils to factor in too
Synthetic- might smell like lemon but there is no lemon in that bottle- all mad made and yes it probably gave you a headache.. and it didn't work for whatever reason you bought it .
Food Grade- tastes good enough to eat, and you can, however, if applied to the body... nothing will change , you aren't being therapeutically supported.
Therapeutic Grade Oils- When you inhale these, or apply to your skin ( diluted, I teach you that part) there are physiological and chemical changes happening at cell level. You feel the benefit and are supported emotionally and physically- all oils have these two elements of support...
Doterra sit at the top of this grade thanks to their CPTG certification
Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade
"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.

and to top all of that the plants are
sourced indigenously.. meaning they are sourced where they grow naturally,, they grow organically , without assistance and thereforre are extremely strong plants having survived any pathogens on neighbouring vegetation, and fought for their own space to thrive...
but there's more...
doTERRA hugely care for and support every farmer, distiller and community from where they source.
Doterra ensure fair wages, caretaking of the plants and earth, sustainability all things so close to my heart it was a topic I was chosen to speak about at the doterra convention
