The Best Way to Buy Essential Oils

Terri FosterOctober 3, 2020

The best way to buy essential oils is to ensure you are getting certified pure tested grade (CPTG) essential oils. 90% of the essential oils on the market today are adulterated or synthetic or both! Most companies purchase their oils from a broker, add them to their product and say they are pure therapeutic grade essential oils right on the label. When in fact this is not true.

Essential oil purity matters. If you use an oil that has been adulterated, contaminated, or loaded with synthetic fillers, you will not receive the full natural benefit of the plant. And in some cases, low-quality oils can even be dangerous and pose serious threats to your health.

How can you tell if your essential oils are pure?

It is important to know what you are buying if you are looking for the health benefits of essential oils. Do a little research to find out how essential oil companies source, produce, and test their oils. There is very little regulation regarding labeling in the essential oil industry. 

The Certified Pure Tested Grade standard:

There are four main grades of essential oils.

  1. Synthetic Grade – most suppliers are selling products with artificial ingredients.  These oils lack purity and can be harmful to the body.  These include things like laundry, body products and perfumes.
  2. Food grade – which is measured the by GRAS Generally Regarded as Safe standard.  These are mainly used to flavor foods and lack therapeutic benefits.
  3. Therapeutic grade – You would think these would be safe but the problem is they are not well regulated.  These are  mainly used for massage, aroma or cosmetic use and have a low standard to qualify for this category.
  4. The fourth standard is doTERRA’s CPTG. The certified pure tested grade process includes a rigorous examination of every batch of oil, along with third-party testing to guarantee transparency.  It is a standard doTERRA upholds with every drop of essential oil they produce and far exceeds organic labeling requirements.

This is why I choose doTERRA essential oils. I know they are safe for my family and we get consistent results with every use.

How to purchase doTERRA essential oils

There are three ways to purchase doTERRA essential oils. If you are ready to get started on your oil journey there are three ways to purchase.
