Why Canada?

The Giant Arborvitae tree is native to the temperate rainforest of the Pacific Northwest.

How Does It Work?


The Arborvitae tree is a hardy evergreen tree also known as the Western Red Cedar. As a species of Thuja, however, Arborvitae comes from the cypress family, not the cedar family. Arborvitae trees can grow up to 230 feet (70 m) tall. Some trees can live well over a thousand years, with the oldest having survived for 1460 years. Arborvitae repel insects, including termites.

Native Americans have used Arborvitae trees for generations. Historically, the wood was used for building vessels, totem poles, and homes. The roots and bark could be used to make other items like baskets, rope, and twine. The Arborvitae tree was ideal for these kinds of projects due to its chemical makeup and ability to repel insects, which minimised damage and maximised preservation.

Arborvitae essential oil is produced through steam distillation of the wood. However, to ensure no trees are cut unnecessarily for oil production, only sawdust and residual materials from timber processing of Arborvitae are used to produce the oil.


Environmental Stewardship and Sustainable Sourcing

The timber industry has been sourcing Arborvitae for decades. Unfortunately, in the past, the leftover sawdust from timber processing of the Arborvitae tree was burned as waste. Here's how doTERRA has minimised waste and created environmental friendly sourcing practices for their Arborvitae essential oil:

  • doTERRA has partnered with the Arborvitae timber industry to collect all sawdust and residual materials left over from timber processing
  • This residual material is then distilled to make doTERRA Arborvitae essential oil, minimising waste and ensuring sustainability
