EO Series Post #2: Are all Essential Oil brands the same?

The NAHA (National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy) states: “Adulterated essential oils increase the likelihood of an adverse response and hence the need for pure, authentic, and genuine essential oils is of the utmost importance.” You can be more confident in the safety of using essential oils by making sure they are made of a good quality.

We see a lot of different brands that say 100% organic, therapeutic, raw, all natural, etc. but unfortunately, those terms are often purely marketing and do not indicate true statements. When I started using essential oils years ago, I bought them from various places. Once I started using quality essential oils from reputable brands, I could see and feel the difference. Since I use essential oils for the health and wellness of my family, I use only quality brands.

There are a few suppliers/brands of quality essential oils. Be sure to research testing standards and quality controls as well as the company overall. Learn more at http://www.naha.org

Healthy Honeybee

Buzz Buzz Buzz. I’ve always felt like a little bee buzzing around searching, learning, and striving to have a healthier home, healthier kids, healthier meals, healthier habits, and a gracious thankful attitude about everything. My name is Andrea and I am truly a “Healthy Honeybee”. I am a happy busy mom of three and I adore my family. I love to cook, clean, and always try to find more time to sit on the floor and “play” with the kids which really means jump on mommy time. Hubby’s job keeps us moving and starting over every 2-3 years which keeps my inner travel bug alive and my active planner mind always churning. On my webpage and blog, I hope you will buzz along with me learning and striving for having a healthier home and a healthier life. I will share tips, stories, and lots of research about my favorite food recipes, homemade personal care and cleaning products, exercise, essential oils, and more. I hope that you learn, laugh, and find easy solutions to make your life healthier.
