The dōTERRA Difference
dōTERRA is more than just essential oils. Our mission is to change the world one drop, one person, one community at a time. Through responsible sourcing practices and the efforts of our charitable organisation, the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, every bottle of essential oil has an impact far beyond your home.
No matter the cost, dōTERRA makes it a priority to protect the environment and provide fair treatment to all harvesters, growers, and distillers when sourcing essential oils. This is called Co-Impact Sourcing, and it is a vital part of the dōTERRA business model. Below are the eight guiding principles of Co-Impact Sourcing:
✓ Generating Jobs: Reduce poverty by creating and sustaining jobs.
✓ Providing Fair, On-Time Payments: Offer consistent, fair payments to producers, including prepayments.
✓ Building Supplier Capacity: Support farmers, producers, and distillers through training and financial support.
✓ Sustaining Long-Term Partnerships: Provide multi-year contracts with growers and distillers based on solidarity and respect.
✓ Ensuring Fair Labor Conditions: Create healthy and safe working environments, free from harassment and discrimination.
✓ Promoting Cooperatives: Guarantee respect for the right for all employees and producers to join and form co-operatives.
✓ Furthering Environmental Stewardship: Promote energy efficient technologies, renewable energy, and waste minimisation.
✓ Facilitating Community Development: Support community development projects in sourcing communities such as schools,
health clinics, training facilities, and clean water systems.
dōTERRA is proud to encompass guiding sourcing principles that make the world a better place.
From the beginning, dōTERRA wanted to be more than a business. “There are givers and there are takers,” says David Stirling, dōTERRA Founding Executive, CEO. “We wanted dōTERRA to be a giver.”
The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is a charitable organisation that seeks to support community development projects in sourcing and local communities. These projects include disaster relief; anti-human trafficking prevention, rescue, and rehabilitation; micro-loan program; and feminine hygiene education.
dōTERRA International provides for all overhead and administrative costs of the foundation, ensuring that 100% of all donations go directly to those receiving aid.
As a leader in the essential oil industry, dōTERRA invests in research and testing to remain at the forefront of essential oil science. Through partnerships with research facilities, hospitals, and universities, dōTERRA is always learning more about the potential of essential oils.
“The dōTERRA mission hinges on discovering and developing the most potent and effective essential oils,” says Dr. David Hill, dōTERRA Founding Executive, Scientific and Healthcare Initiatives. “These studies are a demonstration of our leadership in essential oil scientific advances, as well as our commitment to ensuring powerful outcomes for families and individuals using dōTERRA essential oils.”
