Back in 2015 when I was the webmaster for Aromatherapy United, I wrote a follow up post on the doTerra company essential oil Drug Claims: doterra-drug-claims
About a month ago, I reported a doTerra salesperson to the FDA for making drug claims. I decided to see whether the doTerra corporate claims that they are “policing their own” is true, and copied them, too.
They replied. They missed the point – focusing on making sure their salespeople are competing with each other fairly, but my point was made. doTerra cannot continue to claim they have no idea these claims are being made, because my email reply proves otherwise.
Things are not getting better – in fact they are getting worse.
Now thousands and thousands of doTerra salespeople are not just putting their individual customers in danger, they are putting entire classrooms of children in harms way by pushing EOs as drugs to be introduced into childrens bodies without parents knowledge.
Complete and total disregard for the fact that salespeople and other parents drugging other peoples children is illegal, they continue to promote EOs to treat, cure, mitigate or prevent medical conditions and now YOUR childs’ brain may be chemically altered, your child with asthma may be at risk of dying, and your child’s immune system may be impacted by diffusing essential oils in the classroom!
Inhalation is the most effective method for treating systemic medical conditions, using essential oils. When inhaled, they directly impact the brain by triggering the olfactory bulb.
In addition, they reach the bloodstream via the lungs and are one of the class of chemicals which can pass the blood/brain barrier.
Salespeople for this company are promoting the practice of putting chemicals so strong they are used off-label as drugs, into your little childs’ body, and no one is doing a thing to stop it…including the management of doTerra who know their Diamond Level Salespeople are promoting this practice!
I looked at the profile for Administrator for this Facebook Group – she is promoting essential oils as drugs on her personal Facebook profile.
I googled her – here is a graphic from the website for one of the people she is credited for recruiting into the doTerra company – yup – doTerra DRUG CLAIMS including Alzheimer’s disease – cancer – pneumonia and more.
The FDA needs the public to report these illegal drug claims for essential oils by salespeople. The aromatherapy industry is self-regulated, and in order to maintain the freedom we currently have to purchase and use essential oils safely, we need to all work together to enforce the laws against those individuals who jeopardize our rights with their false and illegal claims for essential oils and aromatherapy products.
