I love doTerra because they produce Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.  This year I have decided to be more healthy and being more conscious about what I put into my body and interact with the environment around me.  I wanted to make conscious choices about what I used to heal my aches and wounds and maintain my health.  By no means am I all natural, but I wanted natural solutions to be my first choice if possible and seemed like the right answer.  Noted, this is a work in progress and every changing.  The path lead me to essential oils.  What drew me to doTerra was the care they put into their product.  The produce Certified Therapeutic Grade essential oils which means it is pure and free of contaminants.  I can safely put it in the air with a diffuser, apply it to my skin and in most cases consume it.

Here is a beautiful explanation from the doTerra website on what defines a therapeutic grade essential oil:

doTERRA’s therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities. Proper extraction and quality control methods also ensure that doTERRA’s essential oils are free of any contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues. In addition to being 100% pure and natural, doTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are subjected to further quality testing that ensures the correct composition of the active natural compounds found in each oil. Even though an essential oil may be 100% pure, if the right species or part of a plant has not been used, or if the plant has not been grown in the right environment or harvested at the right time, or if it has not been distilled under the right conditions, the natural chemical makeup of the extraction will not provide as predictable and powerful a benefit. In some cases, the wrong plant harvested at the wrong time may result in an extract that contains harmful levels of some constituents.

Using CTPG essential oil is important to my goal of maintaining my health. Knowing how and the care doTerra puts into creating Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils is just one less thing to worry about.  I am truly excited to share the benefits of essential oils.  I believe the world is changing and we want to understand the impact of thing we buy and how it affects the world around us and our bodies.

I look forward to sharing my essential oil journey with you.  Please leave a comment or share this post.
