Essential oils are powerful, natural and safe remedies made from plant extracts from around the world. They have been used for thousands of years by various cultures to treat disease, lift one’s mood and as spices for cooking.
When using Essential Oils, it is very important to buy from a reputable company to be sure that you are getting the highest, purest therapeutic grade oils. Since these are not regulated by the FDA, not every brand of oil will be 100% pure essential oil. I highly recommend the brand doTerra. I believe they are a pure oil and safe for use. There are certainly a few other brands on the market that are also therapeutic, but I personally feel that doTerra has the best oils available and they are all very well priced.
From doTerra's website:
dōTERRA's therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities. Proper extraction and quality control methods also ensure that dōTERRA's essential oils are free of any contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues. In addition to being 100% pure and natural, dōTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are subjected to further quality testing that ensures the correct composition of the active natural compounds found in each oil. Even though an essential oil may be 100% pure, if the right species or part of a plant has not been used, or if the plant has not been grown in the right environment or harvested at the right time, or if it has not been distilled under the right conditions, the natural chemical makeup of the extraction will not provide as predictable and powerful a benefit. In some cases, the wrong plant harvested at the wrong time may result in an extract that contains harmful levels of some constituents.
dōTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure and natural and free of synthetic compounds or contaminates. They are subjected to rigorous mass spectrometry and gas chromatography testing to ensure extract composition and activity. dōTERRA's 100% pure essential oils represent the safest and most beneficial essential oils available today.
