dōTERRA has been recognized for the second time for its sustainability efforts by SEAL Awards.To offer pure Birch essential oil, dōTERRA underwent a nearly decade-long process to produce the oil at scale. Today, dōTERRA Birch essential oil is produced by utilizing the entirety of the birch tree from the region’s existing sustainable lumber industry.
– In the lumber industry, birch is considered a low-value tree that also slows forest regeneration. Lumber companies end up removing and disposing of birch trees to create healthier forests. dōTERRA has tapped into that process by taking the bark from the removed trees before they continue to processing. This initiative not only provides the first ever pure Birch essential oil to the aromatherapy and essential oils market worldwide, it also helps protect and preserve the region’s forests – said Tim Valentiner, dōTERRA VP of global strategic sourcing.
