Essential oil business gains popularity in Hawaii and opens facility on Oahu

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Globally recognized aromatherapy and essential oil company doTERRA celebrated the grand opening of its new Oahu facility on Saturday.

The 7,500-square-foot building in Waipahu allows doTERRA to bring operations indoors while creating new workspace and a designated space for customers to pick up their orders.

Previously, the company has been executing orders in the islands through a third party for the past four years.

“It started to make a lot of sense that we would invest in Hawaii, mostly because of the culture and the environment,” said Dr. David K. Hill, one of the founders of doTERRA.

“It’s an environment of healing. It’s an environment of ohana and values ​​– and that fits very well with who we are as a company, so coming here was natural for us.”

The company has 30 fulfillment centers around the world and four in the United States.

With over 15,000 orders shipped to Hawaii each month, the company said opening a facility in the state would reduce shipping emissions and help meet its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

The company has also partnered with the Kamehameha Schools in one of their largest reforestation projects. So far they have planted over 230,000 trees and will plant over 750,000 more in the coming years.
