Low Quality Essential OilsWhile the essential oils made and sold here at RainShadow Labs are pure, many of ur competitors cut corners to keep their costs low. Sadly, this results in a lower grade essential oil, and in some cases, the difference is easily noticeable. Some of the ways you can tell your essential oil is not pure are:
- Appearance: One of the surefire ways to tell if you have a pure essential oil is simply to look at it. Place a drop of your essential oil on a piece of paper, if there is an oily ring around it, odds are it's not pure and has been diluted. However, some essential oils are oily, such as sandalwood, and chamomile.
- Cost: Essential oils are concentrated extracts from various plants. Because of this, a lot of raw materials are needed to produce a small amount of essential oils, resulting in a higher price. If you are about to buy essential oils that are significantly lower than other manufacturers, it's likely not pure.
- Packaging: Another tell-tale sign of impure essential oils is the packaging. Pure essential oils have to be packaged in glass containers because of chemical reaction they have with plastic, so if your essential oils come in plastic packaging, it's not a pure essential oil.
