The solution to the problem

Essential oils and natural extracts are the “soul” of a plant, possessing tremendous power and energy. As a rule of thumb, it generally requires anywhere from one to ten tons of flowers or plants to produce slightly more than a liter of essential botanical oil. For healing and therapeutic purposes, these oils must either be used in their purest and most concentrated forms or combined with common “carrier oils” for everyday use. Over 300 identified aromatic plants throughout the world yield their precious oils (or nature’s living energy) when properly distilled. Each oil contains the ability to aid in the relief and treatment of basic everyday physical and emotional wellness. Our key suppliers source for us the most pure and potent essential oils in the world. For example, our Frankincense actually comes from Oman, not from India as is the case with other competitors. By demanding the strictest quality standards in the industry, we will generate the most pure and premium essential oils on the planet. We also have access to advanced technologies that promote consumption by users of the product. We further anticipate a premium package for the products and expect to employ delivery systems familiar to the average consumer.

In The Beginning...

Essential oils have been prized for thousands of years for their healing properties, but for the last 100 years the oils have been overshadowed by the advent of modern or western medicine. We intend to restore pure essential oils to their once prominent role in the healing process in the United States and throughout the world. We will do this by creating a direct selling company that brings alternative medicine and traditional medicine together. Direct selling empowers tens of thousands of consultants to efficiently and economically share the message of essential oils with their family and friends, thereby making these precious oils widely available among mainstream populations. In bridging medical traditions we will partner with well-known authority figures like Dr. David Hill, and other well-known institutions, doctors, scientists, and high-profile promoters of essential oils.

Health and wellness is a primary concern for most people today and is projected to be the next trillion dollar industry, and many people are looking for more comprehensive solutions in addressing spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical wellness. In essence, they seek to experience a total healing of oneself. Modern medical doctors have made vast improvements in the science of treating physical disease, but have largely ignored these other aspects of healing. Further, individual patient experiences and a steady stream of additional discoveries expose modern medicine as full of gaps, missing links, and endless questions. For this and numerous other reasons, many people suffer every day with pain in one form or another, and either do not have access to or do not trust modern medicines.

..And so it begins by naming our company DoTerra..which in Latin means "Gift of the Earth".
