We are not doctors, nor veterinarians, nor rocket scientists and for health issues you’re experiencing, contact God, first. Any and all real, lasting help always begins and ends with Him. While we can provide research and advice pertaining to dōTERRA’s essential oils, you should always contact your doctor before using any essential oils for any reason, to make sure they do not create a conflict as dōTERRA’s essential oils are truly pure, powerful and effective.

It is important to note that the statements made on this blog have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The products mentioned at TheEssentialLife.us or by Homer or Alicia Purdy are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Why is this NOT a bad thing? Because the FDA, for a variety of reasons, does not or cannot evaluate every claim ever made by every person who creates a health and wellness product. Many over-the-counter products feature the same disclaimer such as the fiber supplements and multi-vitamins you take every day, among many other things.

As you see, it’s important to note that not being evaluated by the FDA doesn’t mean a product isn’t safe. It simply means, they haven’t taken a look at it yet.

Fortunately, dōTERRA can help!

Because the essential oil industry is not well regulated, dōTERRA has created their own evaluation standard called, “Certified Pure Theraputic Grade (CPTG)”. All dōTERRA oils are produced using this gold standard and while any other essential oil company canmeet or exceed these grading points, NONE ever has (to date)- ever.

This is what sets dōTERRA apart from any other essential oil company in the world and is just one of the many reasons why we have gotten behind it as Wellness Advocates and educators for these wonderful products.
