Grade of Oils

It is really important when using essential oils to make sure that they are certified pure therapeutic grade. Often times because essential oils are expensive many people will just search online for the cheapest oils they can find. I would not recommend this because not all essential oils are created equal. Some essential oils are very diluted and are not very pure. Some essential oils are even synthetic.

When buying medicine you do not look for the most diluted one you can find just to save you money. You want a medicine that will actually be strong enough to do what it is suppose to do. Most people that have used essential oils and have not seen any results is due to the fact that they did not buy the right type. You have to be very careful to make sure you buy the right grade. If it seems to good to be true then it probably is.
