There is NO SUCH THING as "therapeutic grade" essential oils.

Let me say that one more time, just to be clear:

There is NO SUCH THING as "therapeutic grade" essential oils.

I explain this to people alot, but I get the sense sometimes that they don't believe me. I understand. Other compaines are claiming that their essential oils are therapeutic grade, and charging more for it. Trust me when I tell you that I know FOR SURE that there is another seller (no, I won't name names!) who purchases essential oils from some of our same sources, labels them as therapeutic grade, and charges an arm and a leg for them. Which I think is silly.

Here is an excellent blog post with more facts.

I only tell this so that you aren't mislead or decieved by other companies. That's all!
