The dōTERRA lab and trusted third-party labs employ the following tests to ensure that only the highest quality oils are approved for customer use :
■ Organoleptic Assessment : An assessment of the appearance , colour and aroma of each oil
■ Specific Gravity : Verifies the purity and quality of each essential oil
■ Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectroscopy ( GC / MS ): Ensures that the chemistry of each oil matches the expected chemical profile
■ Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy ( FTIR ): Analyses an oil ’ s material composition to make sure it meets dōTERRA standards
■ Optical Rotation : Can help to identify synthetic additives that do not show up on other tests
■ Refractive Index : Measures how light spreads through the oil to ensure it meets dōTERRA standards
■ Contamination Testing : Oils are tested for harmful contaminants , heavy metals and potentially harmful microorganisms
■ Stability Testing : Helps to ensure that an essential oil will maintain its purity and efficacy for the length of its intended use
In addition to rigorous testing standards , dōTERRA uses the knowledge and expertise of a scientific advisory board that is comprised of experts in chemistry , microbiology , botany , research science , physiology and nutritional science .
