You’re probably wondering why in the world you should choose doTERRA over the other essential oil companies out there! All I can do is share why I chose them, and why I truly believe they are the best in the industry. When I began looking into essential oils, quality was the most important thing to me. Below are the reasons I chose doTERRA …
Would you rather have an orange that was grown in Florida or one grown in Maine? Hands down, for me, the answer is Florida! It’s the same way with all plants… God created the world with variety, sun exposure, moisture, soil compounds- it makes sense that the peppermint plant would grow in the northwest US rather than the amazon. dōTERRA believes that we should keep plants where they grow the best, how God intended, in their natural habitat for a stronger, thriving plant and produce a more powerful essential oil. When plants are moved to a different location, it affects their chemical properties, and thus, the potency is affected. Our main competitor prefers to transplant and grow most of their own plants in US soil. We believe Lemongrass grows best in India, so we like to keep it there vs. trying to grow it here.
This leads me to the next important reason: dōTERRA believes in a global impact. We don’t want these precious essential oils to solely help our own families; we want them to support families around the world. They created their co-impact sourcing initiative which allows farmers to care for our precious plants, thus supplying them with an awesome income and changing their lives and their families’ lives for generations to come. These oils are not meant for the wealth of one nation; they were given by God, for all to care for.
Last, but not least, dōTERRA created an organization called the Healing Hands Foundation which seeks to donate and provide aid to people in need. They build homes, provide food, clothing, education, support and so much more to so many needy people. They also have partnered with O.U.R. Operation Underground Railroad to donate and raise awareness to end childhood sex trafficking. I love to partner with a company that sees those in need, those with no voice, and provide healing and hope.
I absolutely love this company! Their integrity and commitment to quality makes me want to share with everyone I know how wonderful these oils are!
