How To Spot Fake Essential Oils
THE TYPE OF CONTAINER
Storing the oil in a glass container is essential due to the strong chemical compounds in the oil that break down and react when coming in contact with plastic.
The glass needs to be a dark color too, such as amber or dark blue, in order to keep the oil from ultraviolet degradation.
THE NAME OF THE OIL
Most people shop online for essential oils these days. If you’re one of them, as you add those items to your cart, make sure the online store includes the common name of the oil as well as the Latin name.
A VERY CHEAP PRICE
HOW IT WAS HARVESTED AND PRODUCED
Because essential oils are created from plants, buying an organic oil is important in order to avoid potential pesticide contamination.
IS A STATEMENT ABOUT PURITY ABSENT?
THE SMELL OF THE OIL
If you purchase an oil from the same company, but it doesn’t smell like the others of the same type you purchased, that’s actually a good sign.
HOW IT POURS
Once you have your oil and unscrew the cap, pay attention to how it’s sealed.
It should be sealed with something called an “orifice reducer.” It’s a plug that controls how many drops come out at once.
That’s not only helpful
IT FAILS THE PURITY TEST
Be sure to test your oil for purity once you’ve purchased it. To do so, simply place a single drop onto a piece of white paper (computer printer paper works great), and then allow it to dry.
If an oil ring is left behind, it’s not a pure essential oil.
