With doTERRA, you are getting nothing but quality because they are 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils (remember what we said about cooking and using topically). Candice has used alot of different essential oils over the years and she personally believes doTERRA is one of the best (in price, aroma, product selection and quality)!
Here is why doTERRA essential oils are so great with an excerpt from their website:
“Each doTERRA oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.
While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques.
The most common method of extracting essential oils is a low-heat steam distillation process. In this process, pressurized steam is circulated through plant material. The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected. To ensure the highest quality oil extract with the correct chemical composition, the temperature and pressure must be closely monitored. Too little heat or pressure and the oil will not release; too much, and the oil’s composition and potency will be affected. “
