What Does doTERRA Mean?


Founded in 2008, doTERRA’s mission from the beginning was to share the highest quality essential oils with the world. Having seen the incredible benefits of using these precious resources, a group of healthcare and business professionals set out to make that mission a reality. They formed a company and named it doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.”

The first hurdle they needed to overcome was to establish a quality standard in an industry that had never had one previously. The doTERRA founders were committed to providing only the purest, highest-grade essential oils. This commitment led to the creation of a new standard of quality: CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. Every doTERRA oil is held to the highest possible level of purity.

Now, doTERRA means more than “Gift of the Earth.” It means wellness, healing, and hope.

Yes, lover of God. I am boldly proclaiming that. Without reserve! I am saved by grace and grace alone. I do not have to be perfect because the Lamb that took my place at the cross, was perfect. Jesus reconciled me with Father God and I have received the free gift of His righteousness. I can daily go into God’s presence and He will see me as He sees Jesus. Righteous and forgiven!
