According to the company news release, dōTERRA is partnering with the Utah State Board of Education to manage the distribution of the wipes, with 200,ooo units apiece slated for the Canyons, Davis, Granite, and Jordan school districts, respectively. {According to a company spokesman, the remaining 200K units will be distributed throughout the state at the discretion of the Utah State Board of Education.}

"We appreciate the opportunity to partner with the State on promoting clean hands and making our schools a little bit safer," Wright said.

At over 70,000 K-12 students, Davis School District is one of the 75 largest districts in the United States and the second largest in Utah. By comparison,

  • Granite has over 67K students,
  • Jordan has over 56K students, and
  • Canyons has over 34K students.

dōTERRA 's biodegradable, 5x7-inch On Guard Sanitizing Wipes are suffused with 70% ethyl alcohol as the antiseptic, with a blend of eucalyptus, wild orange, clove, cinnamon, and rosemary essential oils that the company writes will "... release a warm, spicy, and woody scent creating an aromatic experience when using the wipes."

To be honest, they're the nicest-smelling hand wipes I've ever used. (The author)
