doTERRA was founded in 2008 by a group of men and women who came together with a common purpose: To source the absolute best quality essential oils from around the globe, all the while preserving our precious earth. They do this by not only working with local and organic farmers, but by ensuring they are treated properly. The middlemen are eliminated and they are compensated abundantly for the great work that they do. This maintains our precious soils and crops that yield such impactful fruits, vegetables, flowers and of course essential oils. Here is a great 3 minute video as an intro.
