An Important Note on Quality:
The information provided here on the properties and uses of this oil do NOT apply to all essential oil brands. Because of lenient industry standards and a lack of regulation on terms such as “natural” or “pure”, much of what you find at the drug store is not a therapeutic grade of essential oil and may actually make you sick. In fact, only about 50% of it needs to be actual essential oils to be called “pure”! A LOT goes into creating a therapeutic grade essential oil. The best essential oil brands follow these guidelines:
• Proper plant varieties
• Grown in their indigenous region around the world
• Grown without chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc
• Harvested with precise timing to ensure peak properties
• Extracted with proper temp and pressure to preserve oil molecules
• Third-party testing of each and every batch
• Stand behind the internal use of their oils
