I often get asked – are dōTERRA oils Certified Organic? Hopefully this post will give you the answers you are looking for!
Certified organic is good. I support organic practices from any company that wants to produce safe, quality products. However certified organic is not the only standard of quality.
dōTERRA‘s quality standard for essential oils, CPTG, exceeds industry standards. Organic certification varies from country to country, province to province, and in the US, from state to state. This means it is not currently possible to acquire all oils under certified organic status. Many of dōTERRA ‘s essential oils are certified organic, others are ECOCERT, and some do not have any certification. The reason for this is because we source from so many developing countries where requirements vary and in some locations it is not possible to certify as organic. Our measures to ensure purity and quality go beyond any organic certification.
The reason dōTERRA has chosen not to print “certified organic” or “ECOCERT” on our labels is because each lot has different certifications. Some of our Ylang Ylang may come in with organic certification and another lot may not have the certification. These two lots meet the very same quality standards. They go through the same battery of tests and are both certified not to contain anything that they shouldn’t. One producer simply paid a fee to be certified organic and another did not.
When we say that our oils are beyond organic, it is because we have the ability to see even the smallest component in each batch of oil. Through the large number of stringent tests carried out on EVERY BATCH of oil, we are able to determine if any chemical residue exists in the essential oil, such as pesticides, herbicides, extenders, and solvents. With this rigorous analysis process, we are able to ensure that all CPTG® essential oils offered by dōTERRA are a step above organic. If there is anything contained in the essential oil that was not naturally produced by nature in the plant with nothing added, it is rejected.

This is what gives me 100% faith in CPTG oils and the process they go through. dōTERRA work with the best analytical scientists in the world, so nothing gets past them and most importantly only the purest essential oils are in the bottles you use at home for your family.
