Quality of Essential Oils
Our 100% pure essential oils are highly concentrated botanical oils and are never adulterated. All of our oils are validated by GCMS (Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry) and FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) to positively identify the oil. Most importantly, each oil gets inspected by organoleptic methods. The primary organoleptic indicator of quality for essential oils is olfactory evaluation or smell by someone trained in aromatherapy. The oils are also physically inspected for color, clarity, and viscosity. We source our essential oils by quality, not price, to ensure the best grade for aroma therapeutic use.

Coke is the most valuable brand in history and "Coca-Cola" is the world's second-most recognized word after "hello." However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the human metabolism. Coke is very close to the acidity level of battery acid and consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many toxic household cleaners.
