Where to buy essential oils can be a frustrating problem! There are many essential oils companies to choose from. You can even purchase oils at Walmart or Walgreens. There are also many essential oils suppliers on the internet.
There is also a big difference in the price of essential oils.For example, Edens Garden sells a 1/2 oz bottle of certified organic lavender oil from Bulgaria for $7.25. On the other hand Native American Nutritionals sells a 1/2 oz bottle of Bulgarian lavender oil for $22.00! They don’t even claim their oil to be certified organic! So why the big price difference?
When I come across an oil that is certified organic that tells me the oil is free of pesticides, chemical residue, carrier oils or less expensive extender oils. The oil
may be pure but is it potent?
The only way to tell the potency or therapeutic value of a particular essential oil is to have it tested by a third party laboratory that has experience testing essential oils.
Each oil has its own unique chemical profile.
Two of the same oils may have exactly the same constituents but one may not be as potent as the other oil. One of the oils may have a higher percentage of the constituents that have the most therapeutic benefits.
Some companies will pay four, five or ten times more for a particular oil that has a particular chemical profile making it more therapeutic than other similar oils. Could that be one reason there is such a large price disparity between two of the same oils?
Dr. Robert Pappas is a chemist and a world known essential oils expert. This is what he has to say on the subject, “…pure does not necessary equate with good quality. A pure oil can be distilled incorrectly or could have been obtain(ed) from a particular variety of plant species that was not ideal.”
Again, where to buy essential oils can be tricky so make sure if you are purchasing an oil for its therapeutic benefits you know if that particular oil has been tested not just for its purity but for its potency as well.
