There are four basic uses claimed for essential oils.

    1. Perfumes, (soaps, cosmetics, and perfumes)
    2. Flavoring, (drinks and foods)
    3. Medicinal, (topical and internal)
    4. Aromatherapy, (diffused fumes of essential oils to breathe)

Although there are over 4000 years of essential oil use in man’s history, government agencies now prohibit the specific descriptive use by a merchant that would claim any curative, diagnosis, treatment, remedy or even cosmetic use.

When shopping for essential oils, beware of vendors using creative hype. Essential oils are often categorized with terms such as;

    “Medicinal Grade”
    “Grade A”
    “Therapeutic Grade”
    “Clinical Grade”
    “Aromatherapy Grade”
    “by the Ancient”
    “Blend” or “Proprietary Mixture”.

This nomenclature is used as sales adjectives and is not totally correct descriptions of the essential oil you should be buying!

Here is a selection of terms that you want the manufacturer to use to describe their essential oil products:

    • 100% Pure Botanical name here.
    The slight of hand positioning of the words to say “100% Pure Essential Oil” and then the Botanical Name is deceptive as the concoction can have several cheaper essential oils blended with the Botanical Named oil. The label will be technically right but you can be cheated.

    Here is an example of how the label should read:
    “100% Pure Lavandula Angustifolia Essential Oil”.
    • No additives
    • No chemicals
    • steam distilled (excluding citrus essential oils)
    • essential oil from First Distillations
    • freshly harvested
    • free of inputs, carriers & diluents
    • Natural
    • organic
    • pesticide free
    • no parabens
    • Absolutes/Resin are not distilled but are extracted with alcohol or other solvents such as hexane or benzene, these essential oils are not used in aromatherapy but are great for therapeutical uses and perfumes.
    • Satisfaction money back guarantee

Normally the description should say this essential oil is; “for perfumes soaps etc.”, “for aromatherapy” “for medicinal purposes”, or “for therapeutic use”.
