Is Your Essential Oil a Fraud?
Aromatherapy, using a wide variety of essential oils, is massively popular today. More and more people are seeking natural solutions for stress relief and other everyday troubles and ailments. Running to the doctor isn’t always the best solution. Mother nature has provided us with some amazing healing plants, and the oils from these plants can work wonders for us if used properly.
As with any other type of product, there are some pretty low quality, fake essential oils on the market. Many are packaged very nicely and can fool you, unless you know what to look for. Read through this article to find out if YOUR essential oils are the real deal. If you find this useful, please share!
Buying an essential oil is easy. Buying a good one, on the other hand, can be a challenge, even for trained aromatherapists. Ideally, you’ll get a bottle of potent liquid distilled from the flower, root, leaf, or rind of an aromatic plant. Unfortunately, it’s tough to know if that’s what’s actually in the little bottle you brought home. Some vendors “extend” essential oils by mixing them with less expensive nut and seed oils, while others pass low-cost oils off as ones that are harder (and pricier) to come by. And others just totally fake it with synthetics that echo the plant’s scent.
So how do you spot the good stuff? Look for these telltale signs.
