If it's labeled 100% Pure Essential Oil that means nothing else is in it but essential oils: FALSE
All essential oils on the market are the same: FALSE
The problem with most Essential Oils:
If the price is too good to be true: there's a reason:
The oils are cut with carrier oils. Yes, that's right - it can say 100% therapeutic grade pure essential oil and still be cut with a cheap oil to dilute the product.
Non-Organic farming practices: it's cheaper to use conventional methods to grow plants. If you have 100 pounds of plant that has been heavily sprayed with pesticides when it gets distilled down you will have contamination of pesticide residue in the product. This is a health concern as when you diffuse essential oils, it's been studied that it only takes 28 seconds from the particles to be found in your lung. If you're using oils topically it only takes 90 seconds for them to be absorbed into your skin and found in your bloodstream. This is fantastic when you're using the oils for health and wellness support, but not good if you have a contaminated product!
Distilling oils with hexane, a toxic by-product from gasoline. This is a solvent used to extract the oils from the plants. Hexane residue can be found in the finished oil. Once again, you do not want any contaminants in your oils. Steam distillation is more expensive as it develops less product yield.
Each oil has a very particular cellular chemistry and requires different temperatures and distilling times to extract the oils while maximizing the oil's properties. Here's an example:
CYPRESS ESSENTIAL OIL: which has 280 known chemical constituents. If it is distilled for 20 hours you only get 20 properties. If distilled for 26 hours you get NONE of the properties. Most market cypress is distilled for 3.5 hours. The correct length of time for distilling cypress is 24 hours to get the full 280 properties.
