How To Buy Essential Oils
Jun 08, 2016

Poor quality essential oils (oils that have been distilled from poor crops, have been handled improperly, are old/oxidized, etc.) or adulterated oils (oils that have chemicals or other oils added to them) are not considered as therapeutic. Additionally, essential oils that have been adulterated can cause harmful side effects, or at best provide only minimal therapeutic benefit. 

Below are tips that can help you select vendors of pure, high quality essential oils:

1.Don't bother buying retail brands.  Look online for essential oil suppliers that include the following information...

  •  Pure - of course you want an essential oil that isn't contaminated with other things!

  •  Latin Name - now you know that at least some of the essential oil you are trying to buy is  actually in the bottle and which essential oil it actually is!

  •  Authentic - the last piece of the puzzle - you now know that the bottle only contains the  essential oil with that Latin name

2.Use your nose.  The more often you buy oils that are pure and authentic, with the Latin name identified, the more your nose will learn to tell the difference in quality.  Pure, authentic, and Latin-name-identified oils smell better.
