All True Essential Oils, Please Stand.

All Essential Oils are not Created Equal
How do you know if you
are purchasing a quality essential oil? How do you know you are even getting
a true essential oil and not a fragrance oil? Oh my, this is a very common
problem especially since we see many companies popping up everywhere in the
stores and on the internet or as multi -level marketing. Many of the
essential oils on the market today contain fillers. Just remember that only
pure high-grade essential oils should be used in true Aromatherapy. Pay
attention to the labels and the ingredients. All should say “Pure Lavender”
or “Pure Jasmine”. You want to use steam distilled oil
since this is the only method that uses water instead of chemical solvents.
Be wary when the price is low since true oils are very concentrated and will
go a long way. Pricing can sometimes be high but a true price. And, just because an oil is priced high doesn't necessarily mean it does not contain fillers or solvents.
I have searched high and low for essential oils that I can feel confident are true, unadulterated oils. It took many years and lots of education until I had the confidence of knowing I can choose and use a good oil. Many of my recommendations come from my “teachers” and alternative health practitioners who have incorporated aromatherapy into their practices.
There are so many products on the market today with “Aromatherapy” on their labels. Do not always trust that they are true classic aromatherapy products. Even though essential oils have been used since almost the beginning of time, it is becoming more visibly popular and as a result everyone wants a piece of the pie.
I take great pride in the fact that I trust my products and the ingredients I use to be pure, healthy and natural. The essential oils I make available in my store are provided by an alternative health clinician who I continually learn from and trust completely. If in doubt, just ask!
