“Why not just use EOs from the health food store?”
Did you know the essential oil industry isn't regulated? What does that mean for you?
- All those labels like "100% Pure" or "Natural" don't mean anything. In fact, even if it's labeled "essential oil," that doesn't mean it actually is one! In fact, even a label marked "peppermint" doesn't mean you are getting peppermint. It's likely much cheaper cornmint combined with synthetics and fillers.
- You get what you pay for. So does everyone else. That $10 bottle of frankincense is going to give you cheap results, and the workers who painstakingly harvested the resin tears aren't getting what they deserve either.
- The trees they harvested may have been ideal, but by the time it gets to you, it's gone through so many hands and as per the industry norm, it's full of fillers - stretched as thin as possible so unethical brokers could make more money. And some of those fillers are down right dangerous. And even if the company touting the oils isn't unethical, if they don't understand every step of the sourcing, they don't understand just how far off from genuine lavender that bottle of cheap lavandin and synthetic linalool actually is - and they don't understand that they wouldn't want customers going home and putting that mess on their precious infant.
- Drop for drop, doTERRA potency is unmatched. That means every bottle of cheap essential oil is a waste of your funds, while for the vast majority of uses, you are using just 1-2 drops of doTERRA oil. And every time, the doTERRA oil blows the synthetic version out of the water.
Essential oil adulteration happens at every level of the supply chain. doTERRA's unique approach shortens the supply chain, eliminates adulteration, and ensures fair and ethical payment for the hardest working people at the bottom.
