Compare Essential Oil Companies
Compare essential oil companies? Great question. Let’s look at a variety of variables that will help YOU choose the best company to buy your essential oils from. Disclaimer: I have used essential oils for my personal use for over 20 years. I personally prefer Young Living’s line of therapeutic-grade oils. I have personally used them for my health, aromas, perfume, laundry, house cleaning, personal care items; such as soap, shampoo, and toothpaste. This is just the shortlist of comparisons.
Here is my chart that I created to share my thoughts about essential oils and company history.
Companies Established Distillery in House Owns Farms Quality Plants, Cultivates, Harvests, Distills
Young Living 1991 YES YES YLTG YES
doTerra 2008 NO NO NO NO
Mountain Rose Herbs 1987 NO NO NO NO
AuraCacia 1982 NO NO 100% Pure NO
You may ask yourself, why do any of these items on this chart mean or matter?
What’s so important about that? If you have ever been a farmer or worked on a farm. You may already know the genuine reason for farming your plants from start to finish. Farmers know what the difference is. When you control the process from seed to seal, you know the products that you have in your hand.
Young Living controls its product right from start.
Young Living Essential Oil Company plants the seeds that the oils will be derived from. They also cultivate, harvest, and distill many of their essential oils. This is done right at our very own farms around the world. This is the unique ability to verifying Living’s Seed to Seal Process. When you can have the opportunity to verify quality standards at every step of the process, you know that you have a therapeutic-grade essential oil.
Young Living is also one of the most expensive essential oils you’ll ever buy.
Now you know why. Quality is NOT cheap. Young Living quality standards, production ethics, and company structure are worth it to you. However, if you would like to compare, please read on.
dōTERRA Stole Young Living Trade Secrets
Let’s chat about dōTERRA. This company began in 2008, with former Young Living administrators. These doterra owners had worked side by side with Gary Young, the founder of Young Living. Some had worked with Gary for upwards of 10 years. doTerra started by STEALING everything to get started from their former employer, Young Living. Formulas, member databases, and many trade secrets of Young Living were stolen by the doterra co-founders Emily Wright, Dr. David Sterling, and Justin Harris. David Sterling was the Medical Director at Young Living’s clinic in Utah for a few years. Emily Wright was Gary’s personal assistant for 10 years. Justin Harris was the Western regional director. I knew them all. This trio of “bandits” even called all the herb companies that Gary had REJECTED. These are clearly second-rate oils that doterra sells. I used to get calls from them all the time. My name was on their database that they stole too. If Karma is part of your lifestyle, I would steer clear of this company. They just leave a very bad taste in my mouth. Just my 2 cents.
