Why 100% Pure Essential Oils

Essential Oil vs. Fragrance Oil ( what is the difference?)
Asking about the difference between pure essential oils and fragrance oils is a little like asking what the difference is between natural and synthetic products.- Natural Medicine @ suite 101

Both essential oils and fragrances have their uses and drawbacks. Synthetic products can be cheaper to produce and more convenient (for example, polyester fabric) but may have drawbacks such as added chemicals and environmental hazard. Natural products might be better quality (for example, wool) but harder to obtain in large quantities and not as palatable to the consumer.

What Are Essential Oils?

Aromatherapy essential oils are naturally occurring substances found in different parts of plants - the blossom, fruit, leaf, stem, bark, wood or resin. Through a complicated and often expensive process of steam distillation or solvent extraction, both hydrosol and essential oils are produced. Each essential oil is comprised of between 50 to 500 different naturally occurring chemicals, which can have both positive and negative effects. For example, cinnamon essential oil is known for its antiseptic and astringent properties yet it is highly irritating to the skin and caution must be taken when using.

What Are Essential Oils Used For?

In aromatherapy, pure essential oils are used in a way to positively affect physical, emotional and mental health. They enter the body through the skin (via massage or bath) or the olfactory system (via a diffuser or humidifier). Essential oils may be used to enhance mood, to relieve symptoms such as pain, fatigue or inflammation, or be used to kill germs.

What Are Fragrance Oils?

Fragrance oils, aromatic oils, or perfume oils, as they are sometimes called, are manufactured scents. They are artificially created fragrances and they contain artificial substances. They are specifically designed to mimic the scent of a natural product (such as coffee fragrance oil) or are created to invoke a feeling (for example “spring rain”). The range of scents is enormous and fragrance oils are quite inexpensive.

What Are Fragrance Oils Used For?

Fragrance oils are used primarily in the manufacture of perfumes, cosmetics and flavorings. They are also used by soap and candle makers to enhance the smell of their product. While some essential oils can also be used by soap and candle makers, they are not as commonly used for these purposes due to cost and a more complex blending procedure.

 How to Buy Essential Oils

Essential oils have the power to transform us. They can heal wounds, bring mental clarity and emotional balance. But how do you ensure the essential oil you’re buying is pure?

 Essential oils are highly concentrated, volatile oils that can be extracted from aromatic plants.

Their use dates back to ancient times, and their wide variety of therapeutic, medicinal and culinary uses has ensured their continued popularity. About 700 different kinds of plants contain useful essential oils, and you can find the best of these right here on our website.In fact, the variety can be a bit bewildering, and because many pounds of plant material are required to extract an ounce of essential oil, the prices can be overwhelming, too. Our free downloadable PDF buyer's product guide can help you get the best quality and value.

Let the Label Be Your Guide to the Good Oil

Avoid labels that say ‘fragrance oil’, ‘nature identical oil’ or ‘perfume oil’. These are not essential oils. Don’t be fooled into thinking an oil labelled ‘aromatherapy’ is pure essential oil. The label should say essential oil and state the botanical name of the oil. That said, even pure essential oils can be poor quality. Price alone isn’t an indication of quality – but it can be. If the oils a retailer is selling are the same price, be wary. Essential oils such as jasmine and rose should cost more than cheaper citrus oils like sweet orange and lemon.
Think about why you want an essential oil.

Different essential oils have different uses, so your first step should always be to determine which one will best suit your needs. You can research the uses of essential oils in our free downloadable PDF  family treatment guide. Depending on your needs, you may find that more than one kind of oil is suitable. If you don't have a clear reason for choosing one over the other, ask one of our practioners for guidance.

Learn about the oil you want to purchase.

Knowledge is power, and the more you can learn about the product, the better value you will be able to get. Essential oils vary in quality depending on which parts of the plants are included--lavender oil, for example can be made with lavender flowers and stalks or just with the flowers, the latter being of higher quality--the method of extraction (steam distilled is usually better than water distilled), country or region of origin, and time of harvest. Mackay Body Rejuvenation Centre has researched essential oils from all over the world and only provide the most comprehensive and trusted source for it's selection of 100% pure essential oils.

Some Oils aren't what they claim to be

Adulterated (altered) oils are ones in which constituents such as alcohol, acids or oxides have been removed or added to the essential oil. Manufacturers adulterate oils for various reasons. Some do so for economic reasons such as adding cheap balsams to patchouli to extend the product. Some, such as food manufacturers, do so to ensure consistent quality in their end product (such as peppermint-flavoured sweets). This is why Mackay Body Rejuvenation Center only provides the most trusted and reliable supplier of 100% Pure Therapeutic Essential Oils. One that is renowned world wide and guarantees its purity.

Adulterated Oils are Not So Therapeutic

Adulterated oils can be problematic if you’re using the oil for therapeutic means as it may no longer contain all of its essential medicinal properties or it may have other chemicals added to it.
Common methods of adulteration include:
  • Blending with other oils and marketing as something else. For example, manufacturers may blend grapefruit and mandarin oils and label the product as the expensive Japanese essential oil Yuzu
  • Blending high quality and low quality oil together and marketing it as high quality
  • Adding synthetics to increase the aroma
  • Adding vegetable (carrier) oils. You can test if a carrier oil has been added by putting a few drops of the essential oil on a tissue. Once dry, if an oily ring remains on the tissue you know a carrier oil has been added.
 Without having high-tech scientific equipment to test the quality of your oil it is hard to verify its purity. But if you use the guidelines above you should find good quality essential oil that will help transform your life.

As important as it is to keep contaminants out of our oils, assuring the presence of their active compounds, at the right levels, is necessary to guarantee safety and effectiveness.

dōTERRA works closely with a global network of leading essential oil chemists and growers to select botanicals of the correct species, grown in the ideal environments and carefully harvested at the right time.

Using Essential Oils Safely

dōTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils can be used safely by your family for a variety of wellness applications. However, there are several safety guidelines that you should follow when using essential oils and essential oil products.

  1. Be sure to use only 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions.
  2. If redness or irritation occurs when using essential oils topically, apply a vegetable oil such as fractionated coconut oil or olive oil to the affected area.
  3. Essential oils should not be used in the eyes, inside the ear canal, or in open wounds. In the event of accidental contact with the eye, dilute with vegetable oil NOT water.
  4. Do NOT consume an essential oil internally unless labeled with a Supplement Facts box with specific dietary supplement use instructions and warnings.
  5. Discontinue the use of an essential oil if you experience severe skin, stomach, or respiratory irritation or discomfort.
  6. When using on children, apply a very small amount of oil to test skin or other sensitivity. Do not use oil on a child's hand as they may transfer to their eyes or mouth.
  7. Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor's care or have other safety questions regarding essential oils.

It is important to remember that therapeutic-grade essential oils are highly-concentrated plant extracts and should be used with reasonable care. Consulting with someone who has experience with essential oils will make your first experience with essential oils more enjoyable and rewarding. As you learn how to use essential oils through personal experience, share your knowledge with others in a safe and responsible way and encourage others to do the same.

Good morning Nicole. A message saying thank you for the treatment yesterday. I had the best nights sleep last eve I had in a long time. Pat on back and a big gold star. JenniferJust letting you all know I have been going to Nicole for over 2 years now and would publicly like to thank her. She is a very caring, understanding professional. I have received IPL treatments from Nicole and found for the first time in years I can go out without first plucking the hairs out of my chin and upper lip … this treatment has really reduced the amount of hair growth that I have. I have had back massage treatment from Nicole when my back has been really painful… the pain was relieved to nil. Recently I had to drive to Gympie to attend my mother’s funeral- this would not have been possible due to my back pain however thanks to Nicole’s treatment I was able to attend. Thank You Jackie Hampson, Mackay
