Getting the Real Oils
Most everyone has heard something about essential oils. It is all over the Internet and in commercials. Just like with everything else, however, there are a lot of imposters.
Some people confuse fragrance oils with essential oils. Fragrance oils have no medicinal or beneficial attributes, except for their scent. These are good to put into potpourri or a diffuser.
If you want to really benefit from oils, you need a credible essential oil. In the U.S. there is no discernible difference or standard, so you really need to know what to look for so you don’t pay top dollar for just a fragrance oil.
