metals or petrochemicals will leach into the oil....YUCK! I found ONE company that is SO
COMMITTED to quality that they are all essentially setting the industry standards as they go! Unlike most companies that use clever marketing to overcome their lack of quality. I want therapeutic grade oils that can help alleviate issues that we are dealing with. Not add

#3. It seems like there are a lot of steps to producing essential ois. . There are a lot to people involved and a lot of room for "cutting corners". I wanted to find a company that completed the process from start to finish and could prove the quality of their oils by 3rd party authenticity verification, not just their own.
