Oil Sourcing – Where Do They Come From?

One of the special points of interest about doTERRA is how they source their oils.

The company doesn’t own the land on which the plants grow. Nor do they mploy the farmers. Instead they have a model called Co-Impact Sourcing.

The primary objective is to make a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production.

With over 100 essential oils in its product line, doTERRA sources its oils from over 40 countries —more than half of which could be considered developing countries.

Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas.

The company is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.

Here’s a list of the countries and the oils that are sourced there.
