In order to get the full benefits of essential oils, it is very important to know how the plants are grown and what method of extraction is used. We use only "genuine" (unadulterated) oils which we source globally. Please be aware that there is a difference between "genuine and authentic" oils and their synthetic or "fragrance" oil counterparts - though they may smell pleasant, synthetic and fragrance oils have little or no therapeutic effect and are often mixed with petrochemicals. The are also often far less expensive. Our oils are
therapeutic quality and we are sure you will notice the difference. Remember, for
therapeutic results you must use high quality oils. Essential oils are very concentrated. Please dilute for use on the skin.
