What are essential oils?
Essential oils are volatile oils – meaning they can evaporate. They are distilled from plant parts from roots, trunks, leaves, to flowers. 

Why use essential oils?
Essential oils embody medicinal plant compounds. With their intelligent micro molecules, essential oils have the ability to dive deeply into the skin and enter the blood stream quickly to bring balance to our physical and emotional needs  - unlike any other ingredient.

Are essential oils safe?
Yes - but not all eo's are suitable for skin application. To minimize the risk of irritation, an essential must be scientifically proven in purity through GC/MS technology, professionally formulated with skin-friendly oils, and diluted at an appropriate strength for desired results.
 
Is there a standard grade for essential oils?

No - unfortunately, essential oils are unregulated. This leaves essential oils into two categories of either marketing or scientific terms. Marketing terms appear as “therapeutic-grade” or "third-party verified". Scientific terms appear as “GC/MS tested” or “Formulated with GC/MS technology”.

To uphold our strict purity standards, we do not transfer lab reports from our essential oil suppliers. Every essential oil batch is GC/MS lab tested by our independent, third-party botanical chemist. Download our certified GC/MS lab reports here.
