Dr. David K. Hill (Founding Executive, Chief Medical Officer and Chairman of dōTERRA) is known for his expertise in essential oils and his collaboration with doctors, scientists and hospitals around the world. Through these collaborations, he seeks to integrate the use and application of essential oils within modern health practices. On February 21, 2019, Dr. Hill was a guest in the theatre of the RAI in Amsterdam.
During this three-hour conference, Dr. Hill talked about dōTERRA and its partnership with private farms and distilleries. He also talked about the difference between dōTERRA’s 100% natural oils and other brands’ “essential oils”. Monir Daniëls (AromaPro) and Jason Lever (Market Developing manager Benelux and Northern Europe) open the evening and with a standing ovation from 900 spectators, Dr. Hill is welcomed to the stage.
Dr. Hill and his family
After welcoming and expressing appreciation for the tremendous attendence, Dr. Hill talks about his family. He travels all over the world to speak in different countries. He also visits the construction of various hospitals and schools and searches for the origin of the essential oils. As a result, he is away from home about 300 days a year and sees very little of his family. Nevertheless, his family is very important to him, headed by his wife who, because of his back condition, always gives him a AromaTouch treatment when he comes home. Also for his children and grandchildren essential oils play a major role.
Within dōTERRA, Dr. David Hill enjoys working with many other professional health care practitioners and scientists, as well as working with the other executives at dōTERRA. For him, all the people he works with are part of the dōTERRA family and this family is spread all over the world, well in 43 different countries.
Dr. Hill: ‘dōTERRA is different’.
The use of essential oils is a taboo in many communities; if you use essential oils, and smell ‘distinct’, you are quickly declared crazy. In 2008, dōTERRA wanted to change this. The essential oils that were sold until then,were not 100% pure and so dōTERRA wanted something new. As a result, a group of committed people founded dōTERRA with the mission to share the purest of essential oils with the world, and they succeeded. Through various collaborations with private farms, distilleries, doctors, hospitals and scientists, dōTERRA already covers a large part of the world.
Dr. Hill says that thanks to the oils, he now goes through life mostly pain-free and gets to hear many miracle stories from around the world. He shares with us the story of Heather, the mother of a three-year-old girl with tuberous sclerosis (TSC), a genetic disease that causes benign tumors to grow all over the body. In a written letter, she tells us that she is using the Frankincense essential oil for about a year on the skin of her three-year-old daughter. Since she has been doing this, the tumors have shrunk and the redness of the skin has disappeared.
Another example that Dr. Hill tells us the story of a woman who has been in a terrible motorcycle accident. The photos he shows show a woman with a huge wound on her cheek. The wound would, according to the doctors, heal, but a large scar would remain. The woman, familiar with dōTERRA, sprayed a dilution of Frankincense essential oil on it from day one. The difference between the first picture and the picture of her cheek after ten days is unbelievable. On her cheek there is no trace of the big wound and there is no scar.
dōTERRA distinguishes itself from other manufacturers by the 100% natural and pure oil that dōTERRA can guarantee. dōTERRA essential oils are highly volatile, aromatic compounds produced naturally by plants. Oils of other brands, not mentioned, are partly manufactured artificially in a factory. Even though these oils are sometimes sold as 100% natural, they don’t even come close to the purity of dōTERRA’s oils. That’s why dōTERRA even has its own quality mark for this CPTG: Certified Pure Tested Grade, coined at the office of Dr. Hill. CPTG guarantees the purity and natural efficacy of each oil.
After the aromatic compounds are distilled from the plant material, dōTERRA carefully tests each batch to ensure it meets CPTG standards. Thus, the oils contain no added fillers, synthetic ingredients or harmful contaminants. Because dōTERRA uses its own facilities and trusted external labs, essential oils undergo the CPTG process. This is how dōTERRA ensures that customers receive the highest quality oil, every time. Thus, each bottle at the bottom has a unique ID code, which can be entered on the website www.sourcetoyou.com/nl/quality-reports-gcms. In this way, we as users can view the lab tests ourselves.
The use of essential oils from dōTERRA is often focused on supporting the body during health issues. The pure natural oils can support the healthy function of all body systems. The oils also provide tranquility and support balanced emotions. Dr. Hill would like to see the oils used preventively mainstream in the future for everyday health.
‘There’s an art to what we do’.
Dr. Hill has convinced even more people with this full-length program of how dōTERRA essential oils work, because I too have become even more enthusiastic and want to learn even more about them. The dōTERRA oils are a work of art of nature’s delivered substances that can make a world of difference in health care.
