DoTERRA is the largest essential oil company in the world, and here's why that's so important:
Because they are such a large, solid company, they have the financial means to support the most knowledgeable and experienced team of expert scientists, herbalists, doctors, logistics and business people, etc. And equally important, they are able to source their plants in a sustainable way, from where they grow indigenously all over the world and process them at the best possible time, and in the best possible way. Then they have them independently tested to insure they meet their "Beyond Organic," Certified Pure Theraputic Grade (CPTG) criteria.
For instance, we can grow lavender in our backyard, go out and snip some off whenever we want and enjoy some benefit from it. However, it won't have nearly the same medicinal properties as the lavender that’s grown in the high mountains of France and harvested at the perfect time of the day and year, with the perfect humidity and soils levels.
In 2012 doTERRA established the Healing Hands Foundation, which seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. What makes this foundation unique is that all administration costs are funded by doTerra so 100% of all donations go directly to helping those in need!
I don't know about you, but I am always much happier doing business with a company that gives back and helps others. Which I will point out.... also helps improve your health! That's right, studies show that people who are genuinely happier, are generally healthier. And when you do something that makes you happy and feel good about yourself and others... well, you get my point... Win - win.
A big heart and commitment to social responisibility
I care about people and the environment and one of the things I love most about doTERRA is that they have a big heart. That's really important to me and sadly not all that common with large companies. They really care about not only the quality of their products, but the people and conditions in which they are attained. And put their money and manpower behind it.
They go above and beyond with both the quality of their products and the treatment of their farmers. They really get to know the families (most have been growing their crops for generations) and their communities. Through their co- impacting sourcing initiative, they partner with the communities they do business with and provide training, jobs, better equipment and infrastructure support.
