Many of you may of heard about these oils. I have been using them since 2000 and they did save my life. I thought it would be good for you to read this information so you can make an informed choice when buying Essential Oils in Australia.
Things you Should Know . . .
Unfortunately not all essential oils are created equal. In fact many, if not all the oils on the market are what is called "perfume quality" or "4th & 5th quality oils.
These are over-processed, chemical laden, highly adulterated and de-natured products that, in reality, are little more than cheap perfume made from various odorous plants. This includes some oils found in health food stores.
Many people think that when they buy an oil that is labeled as "100% pure" they are getting good oils.
Pure unadulterated essential oil is very hard to come by & can be very expensive. One reason for this is because it can take as many as 500 to 2,000 pounds or more of raw plant material to produce just a pound of pure essential oil.
Fact - The words "Pure" or "100% Pure" on the label can mean nothing more than the oil has not been diluted with a carrier oil or another cheaper essential oil.
Fact - In the U.S., a company can have the word Pure on the label with as little as 5% essential oil in the bottle. (in Australia it can be as low as 15%)
This just means that they have some of the real oil in the bottle.
Fact - Chemical additives can be included in some so called Pure Essential Oils.
Fact - Chemical additives fracture the molecular structure of essential oils, altering their chemical constituents, thus destroying their therapeutic properties.
And, of course, the chemicals themselves may present a health risk.
