What are essential oils?
Explore natural solutions for your health and well-being
Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home.
Inside many plants—hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, bark—are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These natural compounds are essential oils.
Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions and benefits.
Essential oil benefits are determined by the chemistry of the plants. If these natural chemicals are properly extracted, they can be used to help you in your daily life.
Since long ago, people have used essential oils and plant parts to improve their lives.
How essential oils work?
Historically, essential oils were used as part of cultural practices and traditions. Based on planet medicine, essential oils formed part of a natural medicine practice that helps the body heal itself more quickly.
Essential oils can break through the Skin and Blood barrier and find their way into the cell membrane. This means that after only 15min. these oils and their benefits have entered in your bloodstream and can do their magic.
Today we have increasing scientific evidence and research showing that essential oils can be effectively and safely used in a broader range of day-to-day practices and routines for excellent benefits.
100% pure essential oils used regularly can help you fight off pathogens and help your body build a strong and healthy immune system.

They can support you, empower you, and revive you. And when using only the purest essential oils, you can be confident that they are safe to use with your family.
Remember, you usually get what you pay for, and essential oils are no different.
Essential oils are everywhere. You can find essential oils at grocery stores, online, and even in your neighborhood market. With so many choices, how do you know which essential oils are best?
Empower through purity
What makes doTERRA so different?
When you use a bottle of doTERRA essential oil, you’re using an oil that is pure. There are no contaminants, fillers, or adulterations. The essential oil industry did not have standards to ensure purity, so doTERRA created one.
Every batch of doTERRA essential oils undergoes a rigorous testing process—well beyond what would be considered “good enough.” After that, each oil is sent to an independent third party for further testing and validation.
Pure Essential Oils Pass Tests
If the oil passes the tests, it’s labeled as CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade.™ When you see the CPTG® label, you know you’re using the purest essential oils on the market.
