What matters most is purity and potency. You want to know that the oils you're using are safe for the whole family, free of synthetics and additives, and will do what they are designed to do. Purity and potency is dependent on where the plant material is sourced, timely harvesting, proper distillation, and adequate testing. Not just a test by the company itself, but a panel of tests done by a 3rd party. If you find a brand that fulfills this criteria than yes, that brand matters!! Essential oils are an unregulated industry. There are numerous brands, and its up to the consumer to educate themselves on the product they use. I found Doterra to not only meet these standards, but exceed my expectations as a company led with integrity. They care about all involved, sustainability, and do not compromise quality for profit. I love this about them!
Nope! Pennies per drop, and you only need a drop or 2 per use. You might wonder what sets the price per oil...its based on the amount of plant material it requires to extract oil. So lemons are plentiful and produce a good yield of oil, it takes 50,000 delicate rose petals to extract just a small 5ml bottle of oil...making it more expensive. That example demonstrates the broad spectrum, and most other plant material fall somewhere in between. Doterra sources oil and plant material from their native growing regions around the world. This is valuable in that they demonstrate greater medicinal benefits when harvested in conditions where the plant thrives best. Our sourcing is 96% exclusive, so there are no brokers or middle men too. Just some of the ways Doterra strives to bring you the best quality for an affordable price!
