5 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About Essential Oils


Posted April 29, 2019

In health and wellness circles, essential oils have been around for decades. Almost all of us know someone in our neighborhood that tries to sell super-overpriced essential oils on their social-media profile, and it seems like essential oils are added to almost everything these days.

With how much it seems like essential oils are part of the main-stream consciousness, there is still a lot of misunderstandings and misinformation about essential oils, and let’s clear up some of that right now! After this, you’ll even be able to teach your essential-oil-selling-neighbor something they are getting wrong (if they’ll listen to you)!

  1. Most essential oils are sold diluted. Even oils that say they are “100% essential oils” could be diluted since a diluting oil called fractionated coconut oil is often added. If you want the most potent and effective stuff, make sure what you are buying doesn’t have a diluting oil added (unless it is sold that way for a specific purpose.
  2. Where oils are sourced matters. Oils are a lot like fine wine. The year and location of where the organic materials were grown makes a difference on how potent and effective they are. Make sure you buy your oils from a source that will provide you with the sourcing details if asked.
  3. How oils are distilled matters. Just like oils you cook with, there are lots of methods to extracting and distilling the oils from the raw plants. Some processes use chemicals, are cheap, and hurt the end product. Other processes are purer, maintain the integrity of the oil, but can be more expensive. If you want the best and most effective oils, get them from a place that distills them the right way.
  4. Some oils are good for their scent, some are good for applying to your skin, and some are good for ingesting. Each oil has its own unique properties and benefits. To get the most out of your oils, make sure you understand it’s benefits and how to use it.
  5. When it comes to diffusing, more isn’t always better. Diffusing is a popular way to enjoy the benefits of an essential oil. There are machines that can help spread the oils through the air in a room. Often times people put way too much oil into their diffuser, thinking more oil means more benefit. Only a few drops are needed to be effective. Any more than that and you are likely just wasting money.

Recently, we partnered with CUREoils to bring you quality therapeutic grade essential oils and essential oil products, like the Space and Body Sprays.
