Responsible Sourcing GROWERS With a global botanical network that includes growers from over 40 countries, dōTERRA begins the quest for quality essential oils by ensuring that only the best seeds, soil, equipment and growing conditions are used in the oil production process. By partnering with growers who have a deep understanding of native plants, local climate, weather patterns, what seeds and soil to use, the best time to plant, etc., dōTERRA produces pure, potent and safe essential oils. Cutting corners at any point of the growing, harvesting or distilling process will result in lower quality essential oils, which is why dōTERRA relies on the knowledge and expertise of native farmers. Not only does the careful selection of plant sources allow dōTERRA to produce pure and precious essential oils, it also provides jobs for rural farmers who might otherwise experience unfair wages or poor working conditions. When growers partner with dōTERRA, they receive fair pay that allows them to support their business and provide for their family with a sustainable income. 6
