Those of us who use essential oils to advance a healthy lifestyle is no longer considered hippy-dippy tree huggers. That’s good news. And, with the increased interest in essential oil usage, it’s now easier to find essential oils. This is good news…sometimes. Before purchasing essential oils, it’s important to know that they are not all created equally. There are multiple processes that essential oils must go through to ensure they are the quality that will produce the desired results. Here is how to choose the best quality essential oils.
First, you need to find the answers to these questions:
- Where are the plants grown?
- How are the oils distilled?
- What type of bottles are the oils placed in?
- How pure are the oils?
These are just a few of the crucial questions you should ask before deciding on an essential oil.
Now, especially if you are new to essential oils, it can be tempting to buy the least expensive bottle on the shelf. But keep this in mind: high quality oils that have been tested and manufactured according to high standards will be costlier, though well worth it. Essential oils are one of those things that you get what you pay for—if you want quality results, you must invest in quality oils. Period.
