"Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils?"

At least once a week someone will email me asking "Are your oils Therapeutic Grade? You don't state that on the website." My instinct is to ask "What do you mean by "Therapeutic Grade?" Asking the question tends to drive away the correspondent, though.

To answer that question, first you must define what is meant by "Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils" What does it really mean? There is no organization that oversees therapeutic quality so the definition is really up for grabs. It can be what you make it. This is the reason that at Nature's Gift we do not make the claim that our oils are "Therapeutic Grade" since, in this country, the term is meaningless, and often used as just marketing hype. Any vendor can claim that their oils are "Therapeutic Grade" since there is no definition of the term.

This is just the start of what is either a glorious rant, or a really informative page... read the rest here.
