Are doTERRAs oils certified organic?
Organic certification varies from country to country, province to province, and in the US, from state to state. This means it is not currently possible to acquire all oils under certified organic status. Many of dōTERRA ‘s essential oils are certified organic, others are ECOCERT, and some do not have any certification. The reason for this is they source from so many developing countries where requirements vary and in some locations it is not possible to certify as organic. doTERRA has measures in place to ensure purity and quality go beyond any organic certification.
The reason dōTERRA has chosen not to print “certified organic” or “ECOCERT” on our labels is because each lot has different certifications. Some of our Ylang Ylang may come in with organic certification and another lot may not have the certification. These two lots meet the very same quality standards. They go through the same battery of tests and are both certified not to contain anything that they shouldn’t. One producer simply paid a fee to be certified organic and another did not.
doTERRAs CPTG standards ensure that the oils doTERRA has go far beyond a certified organic label on a bottle.
Candace Baconbit, a wellness advocate with doTERRA, has a great video of Emily Wright speaking on this issue, you can watch it below.
When we say that doTERRA oils are better than organic, it is because they have the ability to see even the smallest component in each lot of oil. If there is anything contained in the essential oil that was not naturally produced by nature in the plant with nothing added, it is rejected. That’s what I love about the Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade process. The best analytical scientists in the world work with doTERRA, so nothing gets past them and most importantly only the purest essential oils get to your homes. Doterra is so much more than organic.
