The Big MLM Testing Round!
This fundraiser is established to raise funds to have GC/MS analyses done on 7 dōTERRA and 7 Young Living essential oils.
The goal in testing is two-fold: 1)
test for purity, and 2)
because these MLM companies do not/will not provide their members/customers with access to GC/MS reports, we as consumers seek to have those reports to clarify exact constituents in consideration of therapeutic applications. This supports education and research information for those looking to study these oils.
The lab chosen to perform the testing is: Laboratoire PhytoChemia
Some oils have been donated via member "reward points" and others will be purchased using funds from this campaign. Oils will be purchased/ordered directly from the respective companies and shipped direct to the lab technician. Release of the test reports will be on hold until the fundraising amount is met. The cost of the testing is $180 CAD, or approximately $145 USD, per oil.
Our fundraising goal is to cover the cost of testing, samples, return shipping for the oils to the members who donated their points and wish to keep them, and the processing fees for the fundraising site. All administrative costs and time are donated.
We have switched funding platforms for a couple of reasons:
1) Lower fees of this platform mean that more of your donations goes towards testing!
2) Many people expressed their desire to be able to donate via PayPal, and this platform supports that request!
