Doterra has identified Kenya as one part of the world where amazing plants are grown.
Our partnership with local growers there has helped us to produce pure essential oils- such as Pink Pepper, Geranium, Ginger, and Melaleuca (Tea Tree Oil). It would be easy to work with commercial growers, but doTERRA has found that working with small scale-farmers is just one way where we can make a difference and give back in an impactful way.
In addition to supplying the highest quality, essential oils doTERRA® is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to doTERRA’s oil production. With over 100 essential oils in its product line, doTERRA sources its oils from over 40 countries —more than half of which could be considered developing countries. To ensure that small-scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, doTERRA has introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing®.
Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships.
This will create sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.
