I was shocked when I learned that essential oils are NOT all basically the same!
I always just assumed that if I bought from a trusted source, like my local health food store, that I would be buying a high-quality essential oil product. I soon found out that this was FAR FROM TRUE. Not all oils are created equal, and it is important to know how they differ. If you want the powerful results of essential oils, you will need to understand the importance of quality.
Have you heard some oil companies brag that they are organic? This might lead us to believe they are probably exceptional oils. But there is so much more to the purity of essential oils than just an organic label.
Even most essential oils that are labeled as organic are just considered “perfume-grade.” This means they are to be used strictly for aromatherapy and are not safe to be used topically—and certainly are not safe for consumption!
The purity of essential oils is vital to not only their effectiveness, but their safety as well.
