Clary Sage is a biennial or perennial herb that grows up to six feet in height. Clary Sage oil is known for its calming properties and benefits to the skin. The main chemical component of Clary Sage is linalyl acetate, part of the esters group, making it one of the most relaxing, soothing, and balancing essential oils. In the Middle Ages, the Clary Sage plant was frequently used to soothe skin. Inhaling Clary Sage essential oil adds to a relaxing environment, and internal use promotes a restful night’s sleep.*

CPTG® Quality Testing
Essential Oil Purity: CPTG® Quality Testing
Are doTERRA Oils Pure?
The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. When an essential oil is adulterated or contaminated, it becomes less effective and can even be dangerous. Above all else, purity is doTERRA’s first priority when producing essential oils.
How Does doTERRA Make Sure Their Essential Oils Are Pure?
From the beginning, we’ve made it our mission to share pure, quality essential oils with the world. However, without a definitive standard for essential oil purity, doTERRA decided to set the standard for purity in the essential oil industry.
Not all essential oil companies choose to enforce high testing standards for their oils. In fact, many companies skip important steps in the testing process in order to save money or time. Unfortunately, when proper testing measures are not taken, it’s impossible to ensure that an essential oil is truly “pure.”
To ensure that each bottle of essential oil is pure and free from contaminants or synthetic fillers, doTERRA created the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®protocol. The CPTG process includes a rigorous examination of every batch of oil, along with third-party testing to guarantee transparency.
Some people ask, “Does essential oil purity really matter?” Or, “What happens if I use essential oils that aren’t pure?”
The answer is yes—essential oil purity matters. If you use an oil that has been adulterated, contaminated, or loaded with synthetic fillers, you will not receive the full natural benefit of the plant. And in some cases, low-quality oils can even be dangerous and pose serious threats to your health.
This is why doTERRA cares so deeply about essential oil purity. If you use an impure oil, it can be difficult to feel the benefits of the oil and can possibly put your health at risk. However, when you use pure, unadulterated essential oils, they’ll be more effective, and you can stay within the bounds of safe use.
How to Know If Your Essential Oils Are Pure
How can you tell if your essential oils are pure? Before you buy essential oils, do a little research to find out how essential oil companies source, produce, and test their oils.
Here are a few questions to ask during your research:
- Plant quality: Does the company use high-quality plants to produce their essential oils? Are chemicals and pesticides used in plant care?
- Production practices: Does the company have safety procedures in place to guard against contamination during the production process? Are oils adulterated or are synthetic fillers added to cut costs?
- Testing methods: Does the company test each batch of essential oil? Is impartial, third-party testing used? Are test results available to the public?
- Storage and handling: Are the oils carefully processed, packaged, and stored to avoid chemical alterations caused by exposure to heat or light? (Amber bottles are typically the best option for essential oil storage.)
Ensuring Essential Oil Purity: The CPTG Process
doTERRA begins the CPTG testing process shortly after distillation, when each oil is reviewed for its chemical composition. The doTERRA production facility carries out a second round of testing to ensure that the oils distilled and tested during the first round are the same ones that arrived at our facility. A third review of the chemistry of the oils is conducted as the oils are packaged into the bottles before they’re shipped out to consumers.
Each test confirms that our essential oils are free of contaminants and that no unexpected alterations occurred during production.
8 Ways to Know That doTERRA Essential Oils Are Pure
The CPTG quality testing process includes eight main steps to guarantee that every batch of doTERRA essential oil is pure, unadulterated, and safe for use.
Here are the tests doTERRA uses to ensure essential oil purity:
- Organoleptic testing
- Microbial testing
- Gas chromatography
- Mass spectrometry
- Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
- Chirality testing
- Isotopic analysis
- Heavy metal testing
Organoleptic testing involves the use of our human senses, specifically sight, smell, taste, and touch. To expert distillers, the senses are used as the first line of quality testing to provide immediate clues as to the acceptability of a product. An oil that has an unusual smell, uneven consistency, or strange color instantly tells the distiller that something is wrong. Often times, this testing is used as a preliminary quality control step before any other tests are conducted.
I love the products I’ve used from Enso, but I especially love having a supply of them on hand through the subscription service. I enjoy having the opportunity to review it before it comes and adjust it as needed.
It was a gift for my wife and she loves it.
The body exfoliating wash net assists with producing a great deal of lather. It makes me feel so clean. I love it.
I originally bought your body exfoliating wash net and loved how it made my skin feel. When it was time to buy another, I could not remember the brand name. Thinking they were all the same, I purchased a different brand and quickly discovered that they are not. Thank goodness my friend came across your ad on IG and sent it to me. I stocked up and will never go without your product again!
Your product is much better than others that I have tried. It leaves my body smooth and I have to use less moisturizer.
It’s hard to call this soap, it doesn’t seem like soap yet leaves you feeling clean and moisturized. I love the cleanliness of each product and the pure ingredients.
Ensō Sapō | Body Exfoliating Wash Net
It’s like going to the spa every time. Thank you for introducing me to this magical shower tool. It feels amazing and is still like new after 3 years!
I just forwarded your information to my sister-in-law. It is rare to find an “additives free” soap that works well. Please don’t ever change the formula !
I love being able to exfoliate as I bathe. This is my second Sapo. I don't want to use anything else. I also love the soaps. The icing on the cake was the gift they sent with my order and a personal note from the owner.
I usually buy burts bees lip balm but was excited to see Enso had their own all-natural version. "Namaste Cool" now makes sense because my lips feel cool and tingly from the peppermint and it's almost like I can taste the grapefruit (without licking my lips). It's all around a very nice experience. It almost smells like chocolate mint, but maybe it's the sweet grapefruit notes my brain is mistaking for chocolate. Either way, it has a nice scent that is heavier on the peppermint side. I'm curious to see how this holds up in summer Texas heat, may have to leave it at home, but so far so good. I like the product. My lips feel moisturized and I love the sleek packaging.
Being a single woman I never can quite reach the middle of my back in the shower. I was hesitant to try this because I thought it would be like one of those shower poofs I've used in the past. I used it for the first time and I am blown away. Unlike the shower poofs that have a single "thread" net (I'm making this stuff up but trying to explain well.) the sapo is like a multi-textured "thread" that makes up the net. When I moved it back and forth on my back and neck I felt like I was at a spa getting a scrub down. Wow. My skin feels so smooth and exfoliated. In the past, I've also tried those natural fiber back scrubbers on a stick and I never could get good enough pressure to feel like it did anything. They also had to be replaced often because they would eventually stink. With the Sapō I got hard enough pressure that actually exfoliated, and I saw on the packaging that it will last up to 5 years and doesn't hold bacteria. I got the yellow color; it is so vibrant and makes me happy. I just read the product description for the yellow chakra and it says "The Solar Plexus directs the inner-self power of 'I DO'. Ha ha! Well, I may need to "I don't" for a bit longer because currently with this thing I can scratch my own back. But if Mr. Right does come along- I know what I'm going to buy him.... (-:
I tried this product for the first time and I'm now telling everyone I know about it. It has definitely elevated my shower routine. First the soap- lightly scented but not too strong, it lathers great and is very moisturizing. I held it by the nubs and lathered it up with the sapo on the flat side. Second, here's where it gets even better... the nubs y'all.... THE NUBS! My neck and shoulders are always tight so I used that side to massage up and down my neck. It was wonderful. I travel a lot and I am a bit obsessed with objects that serve 2 or more purposes. This bar checks all the boxes.... 1) Body Bar 2) Face Bar 3) Nubby Massage Bar Never thought soap could be this good. Will purchase this again and I already plan to give some as gifts.
