Yes! The Essential Oil Company Ltd. has selected only the finest sources of essential oils to guarantee purity, we have been supplying industry since 1993. All our products are 100% pure, unadulterated, undiluted and wholly derived from named botanical species and known countries of origin. We also source from local growers & distillers in Hampshire wherever possible. Therapeutic and/or Clinical Grade are marketing terms coined by some companies to imply that their oils are superior. If the oil is 100% pure it is going to be therapeutic by nature if it’s from the species and origins recommended for use in clinical aromatherapy and if it’s grown and distilled correctly. Our essential oils are analysed and tested using the following methods and performed by an independent laboratory:-
1. Gas Chromatography 2. Specific Gravity 3. Optical Rotation 4. Refractive Index
All oils are batch numbered for direct traceability to source. It is important to note that essential oils are prone to variations due to geographic location, altitude, climate, season, methods of farming and wild or clonal changes. Should you be dissatisfied with our products in any way, please let us know within 7 days of receipt and return the product in original packaging for a complete refund.
