Here are the Top 10 Reasons why doTERRA is the best essential oil company. It can be so confusing to know what is the best essential oil company because everyone has their own arguments and it’s hard to separate fact from fiction.
To tell you the truth, when I joined doTERRA it was because I tried some essential oil samples my friend gave me and fell in love. I didn’t know much else about the company. Since then, I have re-affirmed by decision many times.
Watch the video and read the article below to understand the reasons why I think why doTERRA is the best essential oil company.
#1 – They Work
The bottom line is that they work. Everyone I know that really gives them a try with an open mind is amazed at how well they work. If they didn’t work, doTERRA would have never become the largest essential oil company in the world so fast. Why do they work so well? There are two main reasons – potency and purity. You can read more about those in #2 and #3 below.
#2 – Sourcing for Maximum Potency
This is the single largest difference between doTERRA and other essential oils companies. doTERRA’s essential oils are sourced from around the world and carefully tested to have the correct chemical compounds. They are certified not to have anything added to them. Other companies get away with saying they are pure by adding lesser quality oils in with the more expensive oils so they are still “pure.” doTERRA oils are much stronger and more effective. Many of doTERRA’s oils have been tested to be taken internally.
Most of the other distributors of essential oils buy them from a middle man. They have no control over the quality. I also can’t emphasize how important where the plants are grown is. It is the MOST important and unique difference that doTERRA has. doTERRA does chemical analysis on every location around the world where the plants are traditionally grown and compares all the chemicals to find the location that has the best chemical compounds. Then the plants are grown by growers who know what they are doing and have been doing it for years. Then doTERRA does chemical analysis on every batch of oils to make sure they meet their high CTPG standards. All this is not cheap but it means they have a very high quality, consistent product with nothing added to it. This means that many of the oils are safe to take internally. Other companies can’t promise this because of the fillers in their products and because their oils may be high in chemicals you wouldn’t want to take internally but they don’t know for sure since they don’t have the high standards that doTERRA has.
#3 – CPTG (Purity)
dōTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG) rating certify that that they are 100% pure essential oils extracts, so you know you’re getting the best.
7 different types of testing are done on EVERY batch of essential oil: Gas Chromatography, Mass Spectrometry, microbial, organolepic, FTIR (fourier transform infrared spectroscopy), chirality, isotopic and heavy metal testing. Not just that but they test at multiple points in the process and they use a 100% independent third party University to also test every batch. This results in a consistent, reliable and pure essential oil. ABSOLUTELY NO other company can make those claims!!
#4 -Precision Sourcing and Timing
dōTERRA’s essential oils are extracted from the right species, the right part of the plant, in the right environment, during the right period and distilled under the right conditions.
#5 – Recognized by Experts
Health professionals and experts regularly recommend dōTERRA’s products for their effectiveness and quality.
#6 – Education
You are provided with endless educational opportunities to learn more about essential oils, how and why they work, and how to use them more effectively. Their focus is not just on selling a product but on providing the education necessary to use their product correctly.
#7 – The Business
You can create a home business doing something that you love, that will change people’s lives, and that has very low start-up costs. You also get lots of business support from the doTERRA network, and you gain valuable personal development skills. Read more here about working with me and doTERRA.
#8 – Price, Rewards and Shipping
- Price – doTERRA has the lowest price in the industry if you compare drop for drop unadulterated essential oils.
- Rewards – up to 30% back in free product on every order. Read more about their rewards program here.
- Shipping – you receive the cost of shipping back in free products on LRP orders. I don’t know of a single company that does this other than doTERRA.
#9 – Co-Impact Sourcing
In short, co-impact sourcing is what makes doTERRA unique. It is doTERRA’s trademark and it means that their sourcing impacts both the farmers and the users. It means that doTERRA guarantees a fair price to the farmers in exchange for a higher quality product, which in turn makes the essential oils be the highest quality.
It’s one of doTERRA’s most important missions that they have been working on for several years. It ensures that they will be able to maintain the medicinal quality of the oils while helping the world for the good in the process.

#10 – Integrity of the Company and the Executives
The doTERRA executive comes from a diverse background with years of experience in different industries. They started this company from the ground up and have done everything ethically and honestly. They really care about their employees and Wellness Advocates and truly want to see us succeed by providing high-quality products with an excellent compensation plan.
There you have it, that’s why I think doTERRA is the best essential oil company. I think if you try some essential oils you’ll think doTERRA is the best company too.

Great article! We are doTERRA wellness advocates in Vinton Virginia and are big promoters of our oils! Don’t know if I’ve ever seen it laid out so concisely before. Great job!
Thanks for stopping by!
I just went to a demonstration for doTerra . You products smell wonderful . I am hoping that they work just as well.
I think they work well – but I’m biased! Please come back and let me know what you think of them.
I am thinking about making the switch from YL to DoTerra.
I love dōTERRA essential oils. I have been using them since 2010 and still learn something new and amazing about them daily.
I’m just beginning my journey into essential oils. This would be a great way to start.
I am a user of Doterra Oils and love them. I would just caution those who are searching, not to look for the CPTG mark on other oils. That is an internal trademark, owned by Doterra, and represents their company guarantee. No other oil could even use the CPTG, it is not a regulatory “grade.” The below information is taken directly from Doterra’s FAQ page. http://www.doterra.com/us/faqs.php
Q: dōTERRA’s essential oils carry the mark CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. What does the mark mean?
A: Although there are good essential oils available to consumers, many products claiming to be essential oils often are not pure aromatic extracts and often contain fillers and non-aromatic compounds. Furthermore, there are no current regulatory standards for the descriptive use of the “therapeutic grade” for products labeled as essential oils. The CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® mark represents dōTERRA’s own internal standards for sourcing and testing pure aromatic botanical extracts using independent laboratory analysis. The dōTERRA brand and registered CPTG mark represent dōTERRA’s guarantee of pure essential oil extracts that meet high standards for both purity and material composition and for accurate product labeling.
I have been doing a lot of reading on essential oils and boy it’s hard to decide which company to order from, especially when you want the best therapeutic values and be able to afford it. However I keep coming back and reading more again on doterra! But it is so interesting and I really want to do whats best for the health benefits for my loved ones.
I LOVE doterra oils and how it has helped my family! My husband and I are missionaries in Africa with 2 children and our 3rd on the way. With limited healthcare services in this 3rd world country it is such a blessing to have doterra products to help so much. <3
There are a ton of oils I want to try! We’ve been using a sample of On Guard, and I’d really like to try the Slim and Sassy and the Solace!
I love them all so far!
