Are Essential Oils safe?
Harmony’s Essential Oils- Pure Essential Oils
Are essential oils safe? Yes, they can be when sourced from reliable and trusted suppliers. Doc Harmony only selects essential oils of the highest purity and quality, which get tested for any contaminants before being used in products. This ensures that no chemical pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers or other adulterants have been added to the mix.
How to Find Quality Essential Oils
Look at the label: Check the ingredients, pure essential oils will have only one ingredient. If it is an essential oil blend, the ingredients will match the aromas in the blends. Examples of carrier oils would be: jojoba oil, coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, etc. are all carrier oils. Carrier oils, also known as base oils, are vegetable oils derived from the fatty portions of a plant such as the seeds, nuts or kernels. They are used to dilute essential oils for topical application and help protect skin against irritation and sensitivity.
Evaluate the company: When shopping for essential oils, it is important to pick a quality and reliable source. Look for an aromatherapy business that has been in operation for several years and has established a good reputation. Choosing the right brand and supplier of quality essential oils can make all the difference in your aromatherapy experience.
Choose dark-colored, glass containers: When selecting pure essential oils, go for quality over quantity. Low-grade versions can contain additives that can affect their therapeutic effects, so be sure to choose only 100% pure products. Look for them in small, dark colored glass bottles; this will help to protect the oil’s potency and keep it from dissolving plastic containers.
Avoid "fragrance oils": Fragrance oils and essential oils are two different substances used for different purposes. Fragrance oils often have a synthetic or chemical base and contain no therapeutic properties. Conversely, essential oils are derived from plants and herbs and they can be used in aromatherapy due to their therapeutic qualities. Essential oils should always be 100% pure with no additions, while fragrance oils may contain added fillers.
Compare prices: Essential oils vary in cost depending on how complicated they are to harvest and make. Generally, more rare and expensive oils such as rose absolute or sandalwood oil will be more costly while simpler scents like sweet orange oil will fall on the lower end of the pricing scale. If you come across a low price for an expensive essential oil, it is very likely not pure.
