Why I Feel Good About DoTerra

I have mentioned before how what really sold me on doTERRA quality was learning how the company sources from the best crops around the world, rather than fields on the side of a freeway. This is one of the reasons these oils can be taken internally, too. Without going into the downside of other oils and how the purity is seriously compromised, I wanted to tell you why I feel so good about doTERRA products and the company. 

Here’s doTERRA’s explanation on purity.

And another for the science nerds. 

I was never looking for aromatherapy, just solutions. Ever summer I have the same conversation with other moms about sunscreens and but repellents. This will be the first year I am able to cover my children’s largest organ (their skin) in something natural and not chemical laden!


One of my first questions about doTERRA was their sourcing. I can’t tout eating local, sustainable food and use oils that are being harvested in a damaging way, by slave type labor. Here is my reassurance. 

Next, I love that doTERRA is a company who gives back. Apparently, I’ve turned into a bible chick. In the book of James there is a verse that says, 

If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?

I try to live by this verse. What good is “being a good person” or going to church or even posting inspirational quotes on Facebook if we don’t take action in helping the most poor, the widowed and the orphaned? 

 Healing Hands seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. dōTERRA International, LLC provides for all overhead and administrative costs of the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, ensuring that 100 percent of all donations go directly to those receiving aid.

There is a really lovely rose hand cream sold for $20 and every penny goes to Healing Hands. No discount, no commissions. I love this. Go here to learn more about Healing Hands and read how doTERRA was immediately in Nepal after their devastating 2015 earthquake. 


doTERRA also gives back closer to home. 

It’s easy to see why this brand fits so well with the Food It Forward brand! Real, clean, pure and life giving, this is why I can share doTERRA and feel so good about it!
