Just an ad-hoc article notation rather than blog.
It has recently come to my attention that I have been unintentionally non-compliant. I want to apologise to you all for any misconceptions this error may have caused and rectify this immediately.
doTERRA have a self coined term “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” to describe the quality and purity of their oils. This is a term coined in the US market place and is perfectly representative of their product there.
In Australia however, therapeutic has a different meaning. The Australian Therapeutics Goods Association is the organisation that oversee the ‘drugs and medicines’ we consume and ensure that they are reflective of our regulations and legislative requirements. Hence, as essential oils are not approved as a medicine or a drug, to use the word therapeutic in our market can be misleading and is limited to those goods that do fall in to that category.
For the Australian market, doTERRA have changed the term to “Certified Pure Tested Grade” to reflect the same meaning in AU as it does in the US.
I will be reviewing all previous blogs where I have used this term and amending accordingly to reflect the AU term not the US term.
Once again, please ensure you have read the blog Before I start… as I have included the necessary disclaimer which correctly reflects that essential oils are not approved for medicinal or therapeutic purposes in AU and as such cannot diagnose, treat, cure or prevent diseases.
