It's funny how all these companies say they are 100% pure. Meaning that their oils are uncut and nothing added. So, how is it that one company has nearly double the viscosity as another brand. They want to make their oils go farther and make them cheaper to produce. Ive found that they are redistilling their oils to make them less "liquid" like. It's just cheap, low grade oil grown in poor conditions to make them thicker.
You will notice the higher viscosity oils at higher prices from those brands that don't cut their oil, even to just 5% to 10%. If a company sells $100,000 in oils a month, just cutting it 10% means they make close 10 thousand extra a month. That 5% filler they add to thicken it costs them barely nothing. All the therapeutic compounds are taken out when these companies are redistilling their oils to give them this thickness so people won't get them and want to complain and return them.
I use my laser to shine through the oils to see if they use any fillers. When I shine through, I use the actual brand that uses no fillers and is 100% essential oil as my control. It sure looks different than the companies that play games with their oils.
See video of me shining oils through different companies oils. I compare Young Living, doTerra, Aromatics International, and a few brands that has everything 50 to 70% off on their site to make people think there is some big sale.
See the mirror drop test to see how quickly and how far each drop slides down a mirror. I have used a laser to make sure they are all at the same angle. Some oils slide like water, because they ARE thin as water.
This is what they do to thicken watery low quality oils:
Every oil has a different weight and not every two oils from different harvests are exactly the same viscosity and thickness. But when companies dilute and cut their oils they have to rethicken them. What they do is they u
Note: Cold makes the oils thicker. The natural 100% oils congeal more when I put them in the fridgerator. This was another way I used to find out if companies were diluting their oils. Not only does it get thick but they harden to the point they won't come out of the bottle. I know they add something when I can put it in the fridge and the oil still drips out. This congealing is similar to putting coconut oil in the fridge.
Also, when put in heat, if it gets more "fluid" and drips out faster, then I also know its cut with something.
Tree oils like vetiver, myrrh and sandlewood are the easiest to find out if its been cut. They are very thick oils to start with. I can also shine a green laser through the oil to see it differs when light is absorbed. This is another way to determine the quality of the oil. A single diffused oil should hold more light. Every time the oil is distilled the constituents are lost and don't capture as much light. Usually oils are distilled no more than 3 times. After that its just overkill.
