All too often, essential oils that are available for purchase contain contaminates or filler substances.

For this reason, it is crucial to get essential oils that are potent and pure. In order to guarantee effective essential oils, doTERRA subjects each batch of essential oils to the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® protocol. This protocol contains a series of thorough tests to ensure the maximum potency and purity of each oil sold.
