Why Does Quality Matter?
Have you ever used an essential oil and thought, “Essential oils just don’t work for me!”. This is probably because you were using a diluted essential oil that could have been adulterated. When this happens, the oil loses its potency which results in the oil not having noticeable effect.
Essential oils can either be contaminated or adulterated. Contamination is unintentional and usually happens when there is unexperienced and insufficient equipment being used. Adulteration is completely intentional and means lowering the quality of a substance by adding another substance to it.
80% of essential oils are adulterated in some way.
The History of Adulteration
Adulteration has been a concern since the beginning of essential oils. Companies will adulterate their essential oils because it’s an easy way to increase profits by also contriving their essential oil to go a longer way. When essential oils are adulterated and substances are added, they become harmful and fabricated.
What is Adulteration Today?
Adulteration has come a long way. Today, we see a lot of carrier oils being added in order to increase profits and make the essential oil go further. Companies will also add different oils to a pure essential oil. For example, Cassia has a similar to chemical make-up as Cinnamon Bark. Companies will often add a substantial amount of Cassia and label it 100% pure Cinnamon Bark. There are many more ways of adulterating, none of which doTERRA involves in.
