Nature's Intent

There are no wasted efforts in nature; everything has its purpose.

Essential oils contain volatile aromatic compounds – which is a fancy way of saying: tiny organic molecules that serve a variety of protective, reproductive and regenerative purposes.

Intuitively, we often know to reach for plants to ease ailments, settle symptoms and enhance our wellbeing.

We know that sipping on peppermint serves our digestion.

We know that tea tree (melaleuca) can be applied to bites and stings.

The wellness world has been waxing lyrical about the effectiveness of the humble lemon; that just a squeeze or two in your morning water is effective in kickstarting your metabolism and assisting the detoxification process of the liver.

When we sense our nervous systems crying out for calming, or we require a better night’s sleep, we instinctively seek out lavender.

But what you’ve might not have been too aware of, is that:

Applying rosemary oil topically can help reduce cellulite and fluid retention.

Ylang ylang is an aphrodisiac (oh yes).

And that lemongrass not only smells phenomenal, but purifies the air when diffused, and can help stimulate the lymphatic system.

It’s not rocket science. It’s the way Mama Earth intended.

Unlike us human folk, plants can’t protect themselves from the elements with bricks and mortar, or last season’s warm threads, or a mug of hot cocoa (I know! They’re totally missing out!). Instead, they rely on these aromatic compounds which ward off pests, attract friendly herbivores and heal the plant from injury and infection. These compounds of the petals, leaves, bark, resin and rind of the plant play a crucial role in its longevity and resilience. In other words: essential oils are the immune system of the plant.

It’s easy to see why extracting these compounds and bringing them into our lives can benefit us in a similar way that they do to the plant. But – and this is important – it’s critical that you’re brutally selective with what essential oils choose to use. With thousands of brands out there, most of which contain synthetic compounds or at the very least, are highly diluted with ‘multi-purpose liquid,' purity is paramount.

I’ve chosen to align myself with doTERRA essential oils – both professionally and enthusiastically as a consumer – because of their purity, first and foremost, and the outstanding lengths they go to, to achieve this purity that gives us the safest, most effective and highest quality essential oils on the planet.

Never before has the word ‘organic’ been more top of mind. As mindful consumers, we strive to select products that are safe, effective, and as affordable as possible; products that are kind to the Earth, and to our bodies. We want to know that what we’re lathering on topically, what we’re ingesting and indeed what we’re breathing in is as good and right and natural as possible. We know, now more than ever before, the importance of quality.

Growing Conditions

Rather than laying down lavender farms all over Utah - doTERRA’s home state - instead, we source our lavender from Bulgaria.

Vetiver from Haiti.
Oregano from Turkey.
Wintergreen from Nepal.
Frankincense from Somalia.
Cardamom from Guatemala.
Ylang Ylang from Madagascar.
Douglas Fir from New Zealand.
Lemon and bergamot from Sicily.
Lemongrass from Southern India.
Tea Tree and eucalyptus from right here, in Australia.

I could go on and on.

 

But why? Why the worldwide pilgrimage?

The answer is really very simple.

doTERRA seeks out plants from areas that they are either:

  1. Indigenously grown, or
  2. Best thriving, due to humidity, soil condition and sustainability practices.

These efforts ensure that as consumers, we’re receiving a product that provides the absolute best chemistry for our bodies. Every single drop of oil must meet strict testing, and to do this, the following is required:

  • Rigorous testing assures the presence of desired therapeutic qualities
  • Third party testing guarantees absence of toxins, contaminants and microorganisms
  • Purity of oils guarantees no negative side effects or drug interactions

It’s important to note that these oils contain no herbicides, pesticides, weeds or fillers… just pure magnificence from Mother Nature, captured in a sweet little amber bottle, wrapped in a doTERRA label. And, if ever testing doesn’t meet their strict standards, quite simply, that oil will be taken off the market. I don't know about you, but that gives me a lot of confidence in their integrity.

But there’s another (more touching) reason why doTERRA spans the globe to source their oils. Every time you buy a bottle of doTERRA essential oil, you're voting to support every single person involved in the supply chain.

Co-impact sourcing

Let me introduce you to Co-Impact Sourcing.

doTERRA’s oil collection is sourced from over 40 countries, half of which are developing nations.

This offers an opportunity to provide resources that may or may not have otherwise been available to these communities.

Think about the current big corporation culture, whose M.O. is to create the most product, as cheaply as possible, for the biggest profit. When this is your guiding goal, it’s the people – the workers – who are treated as a second thought. This is evidenced in sweatshops and factories; people being underpaid and treated badly.

doTERRA, on the other hand, has a relationship with their partners on the ground because here’s the thing:

These communities have some of the best raw material for oils on the planet

and

we have the largest market in the world for them.

With nearly seven million customers, doTERRA has the largest essential oil database in history, and I know I can speak on behalf of thousands, millions, of people when I say that each and every time I purchase my oils, I love knowing I’m voting with my dollar. Voting for a co-impact sourcing model that supports real families, communities and villages on the ground who are providing us with the blessings of a plant that they have grown up around and tended to all their lives.

These farmers, growers and distillers get paid fairly, on time and often receive a profit share of their batches. They’re able to provide for their families, send their children to school, and go to sleep with peace in their heart knowing with certainty that they will have work tomorrow.

Please know that when you’re buying your Ice Blue, it’s not just your sore muscles that are benefiting. The Wintergreen in Ice Blue is hand picked by women in Nepal (I’ve met these women and like to imagine their weathered, wrinkled hands plucking the leaves every time I take a deep breath), and you have literally contributed to their wellbeing as a community.

 

 

Next, we need to talk about the Healing Hands Foundation.

Healing Hands

 

The relationships that doTERRA has with their growers, farmers, harvesters and distillers are far from merely transactional. Long-term, cooperative, family-like bonds are created. Working this closely with communities only highlights our privilege here in the West.

That’s where doTERRA’s Healing Hands Foundation comes in, and it all starts with a simple question: ‘What it is that your community really requires right now that we can provide some assistance with?’

doTERRA doesn't assume that they know the answer. They listen. Sometimes the needs of varying communities differ, but often the themes are similar. Water. Medical. Schooling. Health Education.

In Haiti, the children were walking hours each day to bring back a few gallons of water for their tribe. They now have fresh drinking water that flows freely from a faucet.

In Somaliland, the Frankincense harvesters requested that doTERRA build schools for their sons. ‘On one condition,’ doTERRA responded. ‘You must allow your daughters to be educated also.’ (And we all know how much that will change the world!)

There are currently dozens of Healing Hands projects taking place all of over the globe, and as doTERRA wellness advocates, we get the opportunity to contribute to these projects by donating right here.

Are the essential oils you’re currently using rooted in this much integrity?

Does this much integrity even matter to you? Because I can tell you straight, it matters to me. It’s everything. In my mind, there’s ONE essential oil company worthy of my dollar.

Source To You

 

And finally, another thing I love about doTERRA as not just a brand, but a business with Soul, is their absolute transparency, as well as their commitment to science.

Yes, they are in collaboration with universities and hospitals, and yes, they are on the leading edge of alternate medicine with upcoming papers to be published in mainstream medical journals (praise the Goddess!), but in 2016, they surprised and delighted us all when  they declared they would be making their reports for every single batch of oil available to everyone.

doTERRA's sister website, Source to You, provides you critical information like this, and more, to ensure you can make empowering decisions when it comes to your health and spirit care.

Clearer skin.

Improved focus.
A better night’s sleep.
A sense of comfort knowing I can turn to essential oils first.

And... I can’t wait to share them with you.
