Tips on How to Purchase Essential Oils
Low-quality essential oils that are oils that have been distilled from poor quality crops have been handled poorly, or they are old or oxidized or have been adulterated by adding other chemicals or other oils to them are not considered therapeutic and can even have harmful side effects.
Some reputable essential oil and aromatherapy suppliers and retailers that sell essential oils online and buying online give the person the chance to shop from many reputable companies than if the person was buying from businesses within the location that the individual resides in. When searching for essential oils the buyer needs to watch out for words like fragrance oil, perfume oil or nature identical oil because these words indicate that what the buyer will get is not a pure single essential oil and companies label fragrance oils (that might be combinations of essential oils and chemicals or just some plain chemicals). This is a clear indication that the vendor knows very little about aromatherapy and beginners have to be on the lookout for suppliers or retailers that inaccurately use the term aromatherapy to gain an advantage in making their sales.
It is good to note that the buyer needs to be cautious of vendors that promote essential oils as being ‘therapeutic grade’ or ‘aromatherapy grade’, and since no recognized body certifies or grades essential oils as ‘therapeutic grade’ or ‘aromatherapy grade’ and in most cases, these terms are used as a form of lying. The term pure essential oil has also been overused in the aromatherapy industry that can mean that the retailer is aware of the importance of looking for pure oils, but the buyer should not rely on the use of the term pure by the vendor to tilt the decision of the purchase. At times pure essential oils can be distilled from low-quality crops, stay too long in the inventory or the store’s shelves for many years or be stored in a way that destroys the oils or has been mishandled by vendors so that the oils are accidentally mixed during the bottling process.
Oils Tips for The Average Joe
Most vendors selling high-quality oils at 4 oz. or smaller sizes sell their oils in dark colored glass, and the buyer needs to be careful over vendors that sell pure oils in these sizes in plastic or in clear glass containers. A known fact is that when buying essential oils online, it is a common practice for large quantities of essential oils to be shipped in plastic containers to reduce the risk of breakage and reduce the shipping fees, but essential oils can dissolve plastic bottles thus affect the quality of the oil rapidly.The 4 Most Unanswered Questions about Sales
