When it comes to taking care of my health and the health of my family, I only want the best. I want to ensure that the food we eat and the products that we use are as natural as possible to ensure that they work with our bodies natural processes and that they do not cause us harm. It is the same with essential oils.
As essential oils have gained popularity in the market, you can virtually purchase them anywhere. Even the Dollar Stores carry essential oils now. However, I would NEVER purchase essential oils there. The are a few reasons really, but most paramount is their purity or lack there-of.
The purity of essential oils really does matter. The Aromatic Plant Research Center is a third party lab , whose mission is to "provide clients with a reliable source for verifying essential oil purity." Experts at the APRC estimate that 80% of commercially available “pure” essential oils are adulterated in some way.
Essential oils that have been adultered, contaminated or loaded with synthetic fillers, will not provide the full benefit of the plant and in some instances these un-pure oils can even be dangerous to our health.
doTERRA's first priority is to ensure the purity of the essential oils that they produce. As there are currently no standards for purity in the essential oils industry, doTERRA created the Certified Pure Tested Grade protocol to ensure that each bottle of essential oil is free from contaminants and synthetic fillers. Each batch of essential oil undergoes rigorous testing, both by doTERRA and an unbiased third party tester to ensure transparency.
You can read more about the doTERRA's commitment to CPTG essential oils and the testing procedures that are in place to ensure this level of quality and purity here. And make sure you watch the video below. It pretty much sums this all up!
