Commitments 

  • To economically support and uplift ecological farmers around the world by purchasing their high-quality aromatic products.
  • To support preservation of rainforests by purchasing aromatic products from sustainable agro-forestry projects.
  • To bring top-grade essential oil ingredients to customers by buying direct from to help preserve and promote traditional and indigenous ethno-botanical knowledge of medicinal and aromatic plants and their uses.

Environmental Standard

The demand for high-quality essential oils has led to unregulated plundering of forests in regions around the world, which, in some cases, has lead to many medicinal plants now to be considered endangered. DoshaCare, in partnership, with David Crow supports small re-forestation and distillation projects in many parts of the world. This sustainable business model allows farmers to replant on private properties and to harvest and distill.

We are pleased to support important sustainable reforestation and distillation projects, which bring increased economic prosperity to an otherwise poor region, along with education about preserving unique and important species from uncontrolled poaching. DoshaCare Formulas meet the following social and environmental standards 23% of ingredients are certified organic, 29% are organic, but are no certification available. 36% wild harvest, no certification and 10% are from natural sources.
