henna for me is a pure and simple, natural art form. Secondly after
multiple eoil classes I can't stand synthetic smells.
As for the issue of enviroment and wild harvesting. MOST eoils are
made from plant material grown in farms specifically for the purpose
of essential oils. Learn your essential oils and drill your supplier.
my supplier is starting to provide many organically grown essential
oils (including a very fairly priced Ravensara), and lots of tea tree
oils are produced from plantaitons grown in Australia. Most lavender
is from france. Once again, read up and drill your supplier. We would
be wise to do that in all things. ;)
As for the store bought price of essential oils - they're not that
far from over priced. It's quality you should be wary of. THese
aren't "pharmacuetical grade" oils so they don't have to be nearly as
clean. All though some like fontier and aura catia (the same company
BTW) do use tests to ensure quality.
Alot of times they'll use different species than the one tested and
that you expect to be buying, This doen't happen with the most common
eoils we use, like cajeput, teatree and ravensara, all though I have
seen it with geranium. Hit the books and check for latin names if in
Hope this helps, Lelia
