It is not cool when trying to buy a therapeutic grade oil and you specifically want a certain species of oil and you find out that it is cut with over 50% of a lower quality species that was not grown in the remote village they brag about. So from now on, unless they can prove to me it was sourced from a single origin/species I don't want it.
I am not saying anything is wrong with mixed species of oils but if they are putting really poor quality oils mixed in with the good ones, this is what I am referring to.
Where the oil is grown is also important to me just as much as the species. There are different chemical compositions when grown in different parts of the world. If it is grown in a climate that is not indigenous to the plant, this can make the chemistry composition way off. Many of the oils that I tested are what I consider "backyard quality". The chemical composition of oils harvested in the backyard are not what I consider therapeutic grade.

I do not promote essential oil companies that try to bulk their oils. Some companies are combining harvests. I don't care if it's from the same farm, I want to know what part of the season it was harvested in. Really good oils are harvested in peak season. It's like I don't want lavender that is taking from 37 different lavender fields. Bulking oils is the cheap way of distilling oils. Not this customer. I know the difference.
