Why I Use Essential Oils by DoTERRA | Carley Schweet

Why Essential Oils

In my home, DoTERRA’s certified pure essential oils and products provide us with natural options to replace everyday items such as cleaning supplies, skin care products, over-the-counter medication, first aid care, and more.

I genuinely mean it when I say, I don’t know what I would do without natural solutions from doTERRA.

My story with DoTERRA

When I started using DoTERRA, I had no idea what an impact their products would have on my life. As someone who always put herself last, doTERRA essential oils gave me the tools I needed to carve out a few moments of my day just for myself.

Lifelong transformations start with a few small steps, and these products allow me to make time for myself, support my emotional and physical well-being, and remind myself that my happiness does matter.

My essential oils not only encourage and empower me to live my best life through manageable moments of self-care but also allow myself and my family to live a completely toxin-free life. Having natural solutions for just about anything that comes up throughout our day is the most empowering feeling!

Why I use DoTERRA essential oils


1. They’re 100% pure

Like all supplements, essential oils are not regulated by the FDA. Meaning, that “pure” lavender oil you picked up at the local market might not be pure, unless verified and third-party tested. Scary, right? Some other big essential oil companies have been hit with claims of tampered essential oils, so it’s imperative to use a brand you trust.

What I love about doTERRA is that they’re genuinely a company with integrity, and this shows in their Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® designation and rigorous third-party testing and public results through Source to You. It’s important to know that doTERRA takes its quality and purity very seriously.

2. Their co-impact sourcing practice

Not only is doTERRA very strict about the quality of their essential oils once they hit the bottle, but they’re also just as rigorous and compassionate when it comes to where the oils come from in the first place.

doTERRA sources their oils internationally in the areas where the plants flourish and thrive naturally. That means, the potency of doTERRA’s essential oils is off the charts, and the oils the consumers receive are genuinely top-notch and powerful. It’s refreshing to know that our frankincense comes from Somalia, our lavender from France, our citrus from Brazil, and so on.

…but this is only one-half of the co-impact sourcing initiative.

The other half is the impact doTERRA has on the farmers and local communities where our oils are sourced. Through this method, doTERRA has secured monthly fair wages for workers, empower farmers to own their land, built schools and hospitals throughout the world, and continue to improve the lives of those in local villages.

3. The community

As someone who works from home as a writer and a coach, I didn’t realize how much I missed being a part of a work community. Having a team to support me and cheer me on, someone to share the excitement with and plot goals together. With doTERRA, I received the greatest gift of connecting with other women from all over the world. Together, we are changing the health and wellness of not only themselves but also their family. We are re-writing their financial story through the doTERRA business opportunity, and we are empowering each other.

4. They’re ethical

On top of all the rigorous purity testing, doTERRA has been known to cut oils from the line if they foresee sustainability complications arising. That means, instead of doing something sketchy or unethical to continue production, doTERRA instead pulls the oils from the production line and finds a better-suited alternative, one that has sustainability and ethics as a top priority.

Like I mentioned above, doTERRA truly is a company with integrity, and they are not afraid to let customers down by doing the right thing, like sourcing sustainably and responsibly.

5. The Healing Hands Foundation®

Through doTERRA’s incredible charity, The Healing Hands Foundation®, doTERRA has brought healing and hope to the world, especially in communities that need the correct tools to become self-reliant.

I am fortunate to have been chosen to go on a Healing Hands Foundation®/Co-Impact Sourcing trip to Guatemala in October 2018. The ways that doTERRA continues to give back to the world, one community at a time, truly amazes me.
