Terms Used To Describe Essential Oils
Essential oils are also described as “pure”, “natural” and “therapeutic grade” etc.
All Wild As The Wind essential oils are derived from plant materials, making them pure, natural and of therapeutic grade.
Unnatural Essential Oils
Sadly, many products, which are being passed off as aromatherapy oils or essential oils, are actually synthetically generated in labs, using unnatural chemicals. These products are not true essential oils, and can often be harmful.
Fragrance oils, are also generated in labs using synthetic ingredients. Unfortunately, all fragrance oils are toxic.
The oils that are produced synthetically in labs, which are being sold as essential oils, would much more accurately be described as fragrance oils. But, passing them off as essential oils is a lot more profitable…
Unnatural Essential Oils Are Very Profitable
It is much more costly to produce essential oils from natural plant materials, than it is to produce synthetic oils.
This means that the temptation to produce synthetic oils cheaply in a lab, and then market them as pure, natural essential oils, to generate very considerable profit margins, is very real.
Sadly, this has led to a slew of fake oils being marketed as true essential oils.
The unscrupulous producers and retailers, who are responsible for this, often further deceive the buying public by adding the terms “pure” and “natural” and “therapeutic grade” to the labels of these synthetic oils.
It is, therefore, extremely important for you to trust the company that you are buying your essential oils from.
