I wanted to share a new drawing with you but my computer has decided to die. Not run-out-of-batteries-die but hard-drive-failed-die. Yeah, bummer. Hopefully I can get all my schtuff off of it.
So you’ll have to wait for the drawing. I’m here today because I wanted to share just a little more with you about buying quality essential oils.
A few weeks back I went to a talk on essential oils and I was very interested to learn how you can tell if an essential oil is pure or not. Labels boasting %100 pure or whatever doesn’t really mean squat. And in order to reap the medicinal and therapeutic benefits, the oils need to be pure. Here are some tips that I found helpful.
- Pure oils will not be packaged in plastic, nor will their bottles be clear. Pure essential oils eat away plastic overtime. Also, direct sunlight will change essential oils ( much like how human blood changes with sunlight). So you know eos that are in plastic and/or clear bottles are not pure.
- Pure eos are totally safe and even beneficial to consume. If you see a label that says something like,”For external use only,” or, “Not for internal use,” you know that there is some sort of chemical filler. Not pure.
- Hate to say it but price is also an indicator. You get what you pay for.
Those are the some tips I have found most helpful. Like I’ve said before, I trust Young Living, mainly because people I trust trust them as well.
