Quality of Essential Oils . . . What You Need To Know

Created in a laboratory and lowest grade oil


  1. Natural and Pure Oils

Overly processed so they lose healing compounds

Most commonly sold type of essential oils


  1. Wellness Grade Essential Oils

Steam distilled with healing compounds

The negative is that they may or may not have been sprayed with pesticides


  1. Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils

The highest grade of essential oils with greatest healing properties

Medicinal oils that can be used as plant-based medicine


Creating true quality essential oils starts with planting high quality plants in nutrient dense organic soil.  Then these herbs or plants must be harvested when their healing compounds are most available.
