Aromatherapy Essential Oils
Like copper, petroleum and other goods, essential oils are a commodity on the world market. Very little of the essential oil produced in the world is used for aromatherapy supplies - much of it is used in the perfumery industry, the cosmetics industry and the food industry. Because of the ebbs and flows of demand and other factors such as crop success or failure, the production of pure essential oils can vary, as can the prices and the quality. Like buying wine, you get what you pay for. It is not possible to buy top quality essential oils at cheap prices. Remember: if the aromatherapy essential oils are cheap they may be adulterated or be the result of poor runs. At Green Valley Aromatherapy, we know there are much cheaper essential oils on the market but you, the consumer, take a risk that these essential oils are adulterated with man-made chemicals and/or other essential oils. Poor quality essential oils have none of the desired essential oil properties and can produce none of the desired effects. They can even cause harm to the body (skin rashes, burns, etc.). At the same time, don't be fooled by companies that claim that their company is the only one which sells true therapeutic grade essential oils and no other company does - this is simply not true. There are many essential oil manufacturers in the world, supplying many aromatherapy businesses such as ours and their products are excellent.
Quality Essential Oils
To this end, we at Green Valley Aromatherapy have endeavored to source out the best quality, therapeutic grade essential oils that we can find. We have strong, long-term relationships with our aromatherapy suppliers and demand of them rigorous testing to ensure quality and purity. Because several of our staff are trained Aromatherapists, we insist that our aromatherapy supplies include therapeutic grade essential oils for our customers and ourselves.
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are available for each pure essential oil online (see the 'Detail' page of the spceific product you would like more information on).
