doTERRA Essential Oils and AromaTouch Technique

doTERRA: Quality Matters Video

Essential oils offer a variety of benefits, and each individual experiences essential oil use in their own way. Fortunately, the diversity of essential oils makes them a helpful way to maintain health, even for those who have specific health concerns, seek diverse health benefits, or experience sensitivity. Using essential oils for health benefits has become popular because it allows the user to tailor the experience to their specific wants and needs, rather than settling for a generic solution. Each essential oil holds a variety of benefits for the user. Some essential oils hold soothing, toning, and grounding properties, while others are known as energizing, uplifting, warming, or renewing. As our bodies go through an array of emotions and physical states throughout a single day, essential oils can help us manage and maintain well-being. 

doTERRA was built on the mission of sharing therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world. Having seen for themselves the incredible benefits that can be had from using these precious resources, a group of health-care and business professionals set out to make this mission a reality. They formed a company and named it doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.”

The first hurdle to overcome, however, was to establish a standard of quality in an industry that had never had one. It wasn’t enough to simply provide essential oils to homes around the world; the doTERRA founders were committed to providing only the highest quality and purest essential oils so that families could know with surety that they were using only the best to promote health and wellness for their loved ones. This commitment led to the creation of a new standard of therapeutic quality: CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®.

doTERRA‘s quality standard for essential oils, CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®, exceeds industry standards. Because organic certification varies from country to country, province to province, and in the US, from state to state, it is not currently possible to acquire all oils under certified organic status. However, through rigorous in-house and third party testing, they determine if any chemical residue exists in the essential oil, such as pesticides, herbicides, extenders, and solvents.

With this process doTERRA ensures that all CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils offered by doTERRA are a step above organic.

Gratitude for Wellness offers Beginner’s Classes to encourage essential oil use that is informed and safe. In addition, select classes focusing on topics like Creating Your Essential Oil Medicine Cabinet, Oils for Stress Management, and Cooking with Oils are available once you have attended a Beginner’s Class.

I loved my first Aromatouch session so much that I went back for a second! It completely relaxed me and made my Lyme inflamed neck and spine feel great. It smells wonderful! Melissa by herself and combined with doTERRA essential oils is pure magic!

The doTERRA AromaTouch Technique is a clinical approach to applying 8 different doTERRA essential oils along energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back, neck and feet to help balance sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body. This is done while laying on top of our Amethyst Biomat (an FDA Approved Medical Device indicated for pain and arthritis and serves as a warm and relaxing part of the treatment).
