Essential Oils

Why We Love dōTERRA

dōTERRA has become an integral, beautiful part of White Pine Yoga and we are frequently asked WHY we are choosing to work with Essential Oils and in particular, dōTERRA EOs.


We really believe that good things happen when people support companies doing good work. And DoTERRA is doing incredible work.

Founded in 2008 by experts in the Essential Oils business, there are no outside investors with dōTERRA – the owners personally funded the start-up and own 100% of the company. They changed their lifestyles, took second mortgages, and worked without pay to make their own choices early on. dōTERRA is now the largest oil company in the world, debt-free.  

One of the owners is a woman; Mamas and babies and families are welcomed, encouraged and supported through dōTERRA, from classes and courses to leadership retreats and  conferences.
The Healing Hands foundation is dōTERRA’s non-profit organization, and it’s funded by members, employees and executives. We have an option to donate each month on our monthly orders, and the company raises funds via events as well. Healing Hands has raised HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars and has changed thousands of lives in numerous countries. We’re so incredibly proud to be a part of this outreach.
Pure, high quality, optimally-sourced Oils are at the heart of dōTERRA’s success. Sourcing the Oils where they flourish, making sure the soil is primed, harvested at the perfect time, distilled for the ideal amount of time at the perfect temperature – this leads to a high quality Essential Oil. dōTERRA also has many exclusives with their growers, so their Oils are exceptional. Watch this sweet short piece on the simple beauty of sharing an Essential Oil experience wherever you are, regardless of location, age, background or lifestyle.
For transparent accountability, they’ve created an internal standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG), verified by third party labs.  The name is a trademark; the standard is real and concrete. Stringent testing happens throughout the whole process (even monitoring soil quality) on EVERY litre. All of the basics are checked first: sight, smell, taste and touch. Then they test to rule out any presence of fungus, mold, pesticides, extenders and any other contaminants. Learn more about the science of their practices of testing here. Each location has its own specific laws and rules governing agriculture and collecting wild-crafted botanicals. If an oil fails the test, specifically pesticides, there is no secondary process for removing the pesticides or foreign matter. The oils failing the test would simply be rejected. Other than the careful distillation of the oils from the plant material, no other processing takes place. They are aromatic extracts, nothing added, and nothing removed; they either meet that standard or they don’t. dōTERRA is the ONLY Essential Oil company where you can review the batch tests on Source to You. You can take the serial number on your bottle and search the results for that specific test! So cool!!!! This company is incredibly careful and meticulous about the quality of their oils and thats extremely important to us.
On the site, you’ll find hundreds of hours of free education, guidance, recipes and other support for both oil users and those building businesses. Company-wide resources are supplemented by our team’s resources, from forums to weekly calls, and those who have businesses with dōTERRA are amply supported. Product support of any kind is one email or knowledgable phone call away, and more on the company, the products and the business opportunity can be found on
No need for harsh, toxic chemicals to clean your home. No risk of spreading toxins throughout your air – or your cells. Our home smells and feels incredible with of dōTERRA’s On Guard Home Cleaner Concentrate, Detergent, Hand Soap, Toothpaste, and bar soap. With Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary CPTG® Essential Oils, the Cleaner concentrate provides natural protection – this powerful blend is combined with plant-based derivatives for a non-toxic and biodegradable way to clean and eliminate odours, safe for loved ones as well as the environment. We use it all over the house and its UNREAL. Mmm mmmm mmmm.
dōTERRA searches the globe to find the best locations to grow the plants for each oil; they team up with local farmers whose families have been growing and harvesting that plant for generations. They don’t simply buy up all the land and produce it themselves. They work diligently to HELP communities in developing countries by forming cooperatives, teaching the farmers improved growing techniques, harvesting and distilling methods, paying well ABOVE fair wages, which elevates the quality of their lives. dōTERRA is incredibly committed to improving the conditions in their partner communities.
During the many times a week that we connect with our dōTERRA team via video, text, phone or in person, we’re reminded again and again of why this is such a good choice for us. Connection, Community. Collaboration. Simply put, we can’t reach our goals unless our team reaches their goals. Its so beautiful!!!
We absolutely adore teaching yoga and meditation and will do it FOREVER, but we also deeply love empowering ourselves to reach past where we thought we could go, in order to cultivate a thriving organization of our very own. We’ve made wonderful, lifelong friends, boosted confidence, empowered many others – and now we’re saving money for ourselves and our family.
After many years of self imposed resistance, scarcity mentality and limiting beliefs around money and abundance, we have finally grown past our self doubt and have embraced sharing and helping and empowering folks to do the same! Diligently studying Essential Oils and stretching ourselves in new directions has been a welcomed and empowering gift and we now offer educational classes for EVERYONE ~ they’re free and we’d love to have you!! We are also building a gorgeous team of people who are looking to get their oils for free, supplement their income or even replace it!!!
This video describes why and how dōTERRA uses the Co-Impact sourcing model and how by enjoying and sharing these little miracles in a bottle, we are providing thousands of jobs globally ~ changing lives and blessing communities.
