Why doTERRA | Purity + CPTG
What's in Your Bottle of Essential Oil?
Most essential oil companies say their oil is “100% Pure”, but that is simply not true.
“80% of commercially available “pure” essential oils are adulterated in some way." - Aromatic Plant Research Center (APRC)
Some might wonder, “Does it really matter if I use pure essential oils or not?” It turns out, when it comes to using essential oils, purity is possibly the most important attribute. When an essential oil isn’t pure, it has the potential to expose the body to germs, adulterants, or other undesirable things like heavy metals. If an essential oil contains contaminants, it can lead to unwanted effects like irritation and even sickness.
Along with shielding the body from adverse effects, using pure essential oils also allows you to get the maximum benefit that the oil has to offer. If an essential oil is pure and free from contaminants, it will be safe to use (with appropriate application methods), and will provide the desired benefits. Not only do pure essential oils give you peace of mind that your body will be protected from unwanted additives, but you will also find the oils to be more effective.
Before you purchase an essential oil, do some of your own research to see what kind of testing methods the company uses to ensure purity. By educating yourself, you’ll be able to protect your family by using only pure, potent and effective essential oils.
