About doTerra International
The idea for the company came about when a group of friends, who had all benefited from the use of essential oils, recognized there was a gap in the market when it came to therapeutic oils.
They wanted to bring to the market a product with a universal appeal – something anyone could use whether experts or not.
dōTERRA essential oils starter business package comes with 25 naturally extracted essential oils and blends. Since their genesis in 2008, their product range has expanded quite a bit. As of 2015 not only do they offer natural oils but they have also made the logical progression to spa, hair and beauty products.
Their product line now includes:
Essential Oil Blends - The oils are all therapeutic-grade.

The Features of doTERRA Products
The company claims to use only the purest and most natural ingredients in their products. The oils are said to be harvested from only the finest plants and thoroughly checked to ensure purity and quality.
You can buy the oils as is or have them make a blend to your specifications. You could, for example, simply ask the staff for 4 dōTERRA Essential Oils to use for better skin and they would make a selection for the one that fits the most. Alternatively, you can choose one of their proprietary blends.
There is quite a range to choose from here – it does seem as though all needs have been catered for.
Doterra’s main website does give a lot of information but more is needed, especially when it comes to safety information. The basic properties of the oils are given but not the contra-indications. Essential oils are very potent substances that should be handle with care. Some essential oils should not be ingested and use with care.
