Do Your Essential Oils Make The Grade?
You may be buying lavender essential oil to treat dermatitis or tea tree oil to help with blemishes, but are you sure you are getting the real deal? Are you sure your essential oils are making the grade?
Up to 90 percent of products sold as pure plant oils actually contain synthetic ingredients. Did you know that? Of course not! Neither did I, until I started doing my research on essential oils. I wanted to make sure I was buying and using the best of the best!
When it comes to buying the best, you pay a whole lot more for it! People tend to look at the price tag of a product versus the value they place on their life! Why is that? Do you not feel worth it? You are worth it! Your life depends on your health!
Here’s a project for you to do – to test if your essential oils make the grade:
To be sure you are using unadulterated essential oils and essential oil products (and therefore getting the full healing properties), take a closer look:
2. Take a blot test. Place a drop of oil on paper. If the paper has a grease stain after two hours, the essential oil probably has been diluted with vegetable oils. This test is for oil singles. Blends usually have a carrier oil which will leave an oil stain. Oil singles, such as lavender of tea tree oil should not have vegetable oil in the bottle.
3. Read the Label. You are NOT looking for the word PURE” or “100% PURE and Natural.” Pure just means the oil was not diluted with a lesser quality essential oil. Does your label on lavender, lemon, grapefruit, frankincense, oregano, basil, etc. say, “NOT for internal use?“ If so, it is NOT pure, it is not 100% natural, it is not therapeutic-grade, not what you want to put in or on your body!
Remember you are looking for 100% pure therapeutic grade, authentic, pure and potent as nature intended, seed to seal quality essential oils. Also essential oils like lemon, lavender, frankincense, and other single oils should be EDIBLE! They are for internal use! If your bottle says 100% pure, yet not for internal use, you know it is NOT pure! Throw it away!
For example: lavender oil is often cut with lavendin, which has very little therapeutic quality. “Pure” does not mean it has no chemicals added to it. In the U.S., all you need is 3- 5% pure essential oil in the bottle in order for them to label it “100% pure.” The other 95-97% is filled with fillers, chemicals, synthetics…
