The price for the true oils of Rose, Jasmine and certain other "aromatic jewels" are extremely expensive, even when purchased in volume directly from the growers. (580,000 rose petals produce 5ml of oil.) Some delicate flowers give even less yield, and are simply not commercially produced or available at any price.
All of this has led over the last 50 years to an expanding industry in synthetically produced "essential oils." These advancements in the field of chemistry have flooded the market with these low-cost imitation fragrances, which are today the basis of almost all perfumes, cosmetics and a rapidly growing number of synthetics passed off as "essential oils".
If the oil you're purchasing seems inexpensive for a rare or quality oil (less than $50 for frankincense) think twice about your purchase.
There are few companies who can boast what would be considered "biblical grade," "medical grade" oils, or certified pure, free of contaminates and synthetics which would have been the standard in ancient times. dōTERRA essential oils are certified pure therapeutic grade, and are undeniably among the purest most potent oils available on the planet. They are harvested in their indigenous environment producing the chemical constituency that can only be found at their original source
This was one of the reasons we chose dōTERRA. We trust the sourcing, purity, potency and efficacy of the oils. Fortunately, dōTERRA provides 86% exclusivity in the oils we source. No other company can offer the chemical constituency we can, with organoleptic oils harvested in their indigenous environment.
