How to identify therapeutic grade essential oils ?

Therapeutic grade essential oils refer to oils that are considered to be of high quality and purity for use in aromatherapy, massage, and other therapeutic applications. These oils are typically:

  1. 100% pure: They should be free of any synthetic or artificial ingredients and should not have been adulterated in any way.

  2. Organic or wildcrafted: The plants used to produce the oils should have been grown without the use of pesticides or other chemicals and should have been harvested at the peak of their maturity.

  3. Therapeutically potent: The essential oils should have a high level of the natural compounds that give the oil its therapeutic properties, such as terpenes and other active components.

  4. GC/MS tested: The oils should have been tested using Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) to ensure their purity and authenticity.

  5. Properly stored and packaged: The oils should be stored in dark, airtight containers to protect them from light, heat and air, and should be packaged in a way that prevents contamination.

It is important to note that there is no official or regulated standard for "therapeutic grade" essential oils and the use of this term can be misleading, so it is important to research the brand and supplier you are buying from and make sure they have a good reputation. It is also important to keep in mind that not all essential oils are suitable for therapeutic use, they should be used with caution and under the guidance of a professional practitioner.
