Essential Oils

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are plant’s natural aromatic compounds that are extracted or distilled for therapeutic use.

They are incredibly concentrated and potent, and are typically 50 to 70 times more powerful than herbs. You would have to drink 28 cups of peppermint tea to receive the health benefits found in a single drop of peppermint essential oil! Now drinking that much tea is a challenge in and of itself, but what about the cost? The average price of a single bag of organic peppermint tea is approximately 33¢. This results in the total cost of drinking 28 cups at just over $9. In contrast, a single drop of peppermint essential oil costs 8¢…your bladder and wallet will thank you for it!

How Effective Are Essential Oils?

In a nutshell, very effective!

Essential oils don’t just address your symptoms, but rather get to the root cause. They contain hundreds of different compounds, providing complex and versatile abilities to combat threats without building up a resistance. The compounds in essential oils can easily pass through cell membranes, thus making it easy help the body address issues and root causes on a cellular level.

Are Essential Oils Safe?

The short answer is YES!

We proudly use dōTERRA® Essential Oils, the world leader in essential oil research, sourcing, production, and purity. Essential oil standards are unregulated, however, dōTERRA® sets a new standard for purity with CPTG®.

You can find essential oils everywhere these days…from online marketplaces and big-box retailers, to local boutiques and people’s kitchens. This makes it important to know the difference between the grades of what is on the market. 

  • Synthetic: Toxic chemical fragrances
  • Food: Cooking extracts and flavorings
  • Therapeutic: Unregulated standards that lead to misleading label claims, compromised quality, and marginal health benefits

What is CPTG?

CPTG is dōTERRA’s quality and purity standard.

CPTG stands for Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade and ensures that:

  • All plants are harvested in their natural habitat
  • Are beyond organic and verified pure, free of fillers, pesticides, and foreign contaminates
  • Stringent testing of every batch to not only ensure purity, but to also ensure that the effective compounds that make essential oils so effective are present in consistent levels
