World Humanitarian Day, celebrated on August 19, is a day dedicated to recognizing the vital work carried out by aid workers around the world. It is also an opportunity to advocate for those who need help the most.

doTERRA's humanitarian commitment

doTERRA, a leader in the field of essential oils, is committed through its doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation to improving the lives of many communities around the world.

How does the doTERRA pledge work?

doTERRA strives to make a lasting difference through its Co-Impact Sourcing model. This model makes it possible to create and support jobs in developing countries, offering employment opportunities to local populations.

Additionally, doTERRA works with local experts and communities to grow and harvest the plants needed to produce essential oils in an ethical and sustainable way (1) .

What essential oils are involved in the doTERRA humanitarian effort?

There are several essential oils whose production has a significant impact on communities around the world. Here are some of them:

Ravintsara essential oil

Working with communities in Madagascar, doTERRA has helped set up agricultural cooperatives for the production of Ravintsara essential oil. This initiative created local jobs and helped stimulate the local economy (2) .

Vetiver essential oil

doTERRA has also established a farmers' cooperative in Haiti for the production of Vetiver essential oil. This initiative has supported local farmers while ensuring the production of sustainable, high-quality Vetiver essential oil (3) .
