I avoid all essential oils that should be low heat distilled but instead they are adding solvents to extract more oil out while they don't care about messing up the therapeutic value of the oil.
The plant chemistry of the oils gets destroyed when it is not low pressure and heat distilled. It's easy to know because the oil that is distilled properly has a much more fragrant smell and smells more like the plant.
Solvents are now being used to which still gives the rich aroma. Many poeple don't realize that this destroys the therapeutic value. Those essential oil companies use solvents for the plants that give a very low yield of oil. It takes a lot less plants and a lot less expensive when solvents are used.
I do not promote these types of oils that should be distilled with low heat and low pressure.
