What is doTERRA?
Founded in 2008, doTERRA is a producer of essential oils and aromatherapy products. The Utah-based company has a vision of “providing all families everywhere with the health-promoting benefits of essential oils”. Products are sold by representatives known as Wellness Advocates using a multi-level marketing (MLM) format.
Since its creation, doTERRA has introduced its own standard for essential oils. This rigorous, testing process includes microbial testing, organoleptic testing, Gas chromatography and Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS), Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), chirality testing, isotopic analysis and heavy metal testing. This comprehensive, quality control is designed to ensure oil purity, authenticity and consistency.
The doTERRA MLM operates primarily in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Product manufacturing and packaging are consistent across doTERRA international markets but not all products are available in every country.
In 2008, doTERRA launched with a first offering of 25 single essential oils. Today, the company offers a comprehensive inventory of single essential oils from around the world.
