    Seems OK, But Too Much Information is Lacking I am now officially studying to become a clinical herbalist, an adding an aromatherapy certification as I go. I’ve used some essential oils for nearly 20 years now, and have been studying them in earnest for at least five. I look critically at all of the oils I purchase, no matter the reason, and have learned several things about what one should look for when trying to buy high-quality oils.It is important to note that I am not affiliated with any company, nor do I sell oils for any brand. I have used oils from the MLM companies as well as many of the companies that sell here on Amazon and their own websites. I do have some companies that I prefer, but that is because they have proven themselves, not because I have any financial or personal relationship with any of them.Paper Test: This is a simple one to do at home, and weeds out those companies that add carrier oils to dilute pure essential oils. It’s not perfect, but I do it for two reasons. First, it helps me to discern when something like coconut oil (most common) has been added. Second, when I am able to compare two oils, like two peppermints where one is of known quality, I can see whether they differ in color, viscosity, or true scent (not straight out of the bottle).Labeling: In the US, there is no agency, public or private, that defines things like “therapeutic grade” or even “pure”. A “pure” lavender oil can just as easily be part lavender, part something else, and there’s no way to know except to study and use the oils, or look for a company that offers a whole lot of information. Conversely, a company using words like “therapeutic grade” may be referring to a true, pure, high-quality oil, and some companies have even trademarked “badges” to show this. Unfortunately, they mean nothing in reality, because this does not indicate anything sinister. Some grate companies use these words, and so do some really bad ones.Information: The very best companies give you more information than you’ll know what to do with at first. I look for botanical (Latin) names, the place where the original plant was grown, and the part of the plant that was used. After those basics, I check to see whether the company offers the proper warnings for each oil along with the benefits, and look for whether the plant was grown organically and harvested responsibly. Finally, I want to know that I can look at the GC (Gas Chromatograph) and MS (Mass Spectrometer) test results for the specific batch of oil they used to make my bottle. At a minimum, test results from the supplier are a must. For those of us who actually study the oils and use them to help ease the need for lab-created medicines, it is vital that we are able to see the actual components of each oil.Organic: Even if you buy conventionally-grown veggies and skip past the organic section of the supermarket mumbling about “hippies”, organically-grown plants are a must when they’re going to be distilled into essential oils. In some cases, it is impossible to get certification, so I look for the company to tell me about how those things are grown. I understand that the labeling is expensive and time-consuming, and if the company is willing to open up about growing method or harvesting techniques, I’m OK with that. I’m not particular about having the government approve it.Price: I know, we all want a bargain. And there are some out there. But consider the fact that it can take up to 155 POUNDS of rose petals to create one DROP of rose “otto”, or what most of us know as rose essential oil, it is important that you consider what that means to the price. Some things, like citrus oils, are easier to come by and should be less expensive. But when you consider that boswellia sacra, or sacred frankincense, is best grown in the middle east, and that the trees must be properly “bled” to avoid killing them, and that the resin must then be dried before distillation, and that at some point it must all be shipped to wherever the company is, you’re not likely to get a quality bottle for $20. Companies that sell all of their oils for the same price are very suspect, because oranges from Florida are far less costly to obtain than properly-harvested German chamomile. Either you’re paying too much for the orange, or the chamomile isn’t right.Scent: In general, scent is NOT a good indicator of a quality oil. I know, I know, it smells like cinnamon and its really strong, so it must be good cinnamon, right? Wrong. Frankly, human noses just aren’t that sensitive. There are folks trained to notice even slight differences in scent, both perfumers and highly-trained aromatherapists, but I know darn well that I fell into this trap when I first started and wound up using a “peppermint” essential oil that was actually a different mint that just smells like…
