The market for essential oils and aromatherapy is still relatively new yet growing rapidly there are some who take advantage of the situation by secretly "stretching" oils through dilution and adulteration.
Our essential oils are totally unique because they are 100% pure, raw, genuine, Authentic, unadulterated, and therapeutic all rolled into one. They are free of chemicals and pesticides, and all are single species, GUARANTEED. They set a new standard in the essential oil market.
1. All "single" essential oils are true single species essential oils - with NO carrier oils; they have NOTHING added to them and contain only the oil released during the first distillation - (many companies sell oils released up to the 8th distillation)
2. All blends are combinations of single species oils, and contain no vegetable oil, synthetic fragrance, or added chemicals to dilute the quality and effectiveness of the synergy.
3. All of our oils are both GC and MS tested and an analysis of both is performed and of medicinal quality.
4. Each essential oil is inspected by our lab. persons to insure that it meets the strictest guidelines for purity, authenticity, and therapeutic value.
5. Before crops are distilled into the oils, each crop is carefully examined for traces of chemicals or pesticides. Only after it is determined to be completely free from these adulterations are the crops then distilled into our essential oils.
6. Our essential oils guarantee you the best prices for the highest quality oils.
7. We have three independent "Experts." These professional help select our oils, monitor our written materials, advise us on the oil market worldwide, and provide quality control over our oil selections.
8. We will NOT raise the cost of an oil because the "market will bear it".
9. Because we intend not only to set a new standard but to BE the new standard in the essential oil market, every oil we provide is of the highest quality and purity possible.
