In addition to supplying the highest quality essential oils dōTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to dōTERRA’s oil production.
With over 100 essential oils in its product line, dōTERRA sources its oils from over 40 countries —more than half of which could be considered developing countries. To ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, dōTERRA has introduced an initiative called Cō-Impact Sourcing.
Cō-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. dōTERRA is working to improve lives and communities throughout the world. Many of the essential oils offered by dōTERRA are sourced in developing countries, where the growers and distillers are often at the mercy of third parties. Co-Impact Sourcing helps create coalitions of growers and distillers that eliminate the need for those third parties. Thus, local communities are receiving fair and timely payments that not only support their crops and harvest, but also have a direct, immediate impact on the community as well. dōTERRA works with these coalitions to provide the resources, tools, and training necessary to ensure a long-lasting partnership.
Additionally, the Healing Hands Foundation, dōTERRA’s charitable organization, provides funding and resources to create community-based, social-impact projects to improve lives in the larger communities where oils are sourced. Past projects include building or sponsoring existing medical clinics, installing drinking water and irrigation systems, building schools, and providing other educational resources such as vocational training programs.
