Sarah Goff spent her time calling popular essential oil brands for the truth
Why does this matter?
Essential oils are no joke. They've been on trend since the ancient bathhouses were a thing. Today, what's considered an essential oil is being exploited. That's why secure authentic pure farming practices are important. And if you have to spend a little more that's okay because you'll know that standards trump made up marketing lingo like certified tested therapeutic grade blah blah blah.
You must do your research
I applaud companies that give back to the community. That's why the top company from Sarah's findings is no surprise to me. Standards matter. Setting the bar takes time and of course we're human and there's more progress to be made but this is a great start. It's interesting to me that the general public doesn't shop consciously. We shop based on convenience. Assuming cheap and coupons equal health and wealth. Penny pinching your way through life keeps you stuck in poverty - I know. It's kin to a closed fist while trying to offer a handshake. Or refusing to love when it shows up in your life. For your well-being and the well-being of others, we must do our research and shop with compassion, not conspiracy.
Questions to crack open the truth
I love these that Sarah poses. Why do some companies not know where their farms are? Why wouldn’t they give me a phone number? Why do some companies not have anything to do with how their plants are grown? Why was I given an answer of “no?” Why can’t I ingest something that I made from plants?
Why do some oil companies make their oils in labs and not from plants?
Why can I only visit a farm WITH a tour guide? Why can’t I go by myself?
Why did every company claims to “set the standard” and have the “highest quality oils available,” but they had no part in farming the plants?
Why don’t the employees know where or how the product is made?
How can you sell something to someone knowing they are going to put it on themselves/their kids and not know anything about it?
The way you consume products matter
I believe you're more than a bank account. Human beings are important. We love living young, natural and free from the toxins that have damaged our health. You can shop smart. It takes expanding your understanding and if there's any oil on earth that's helped me to change my mood, it's this one.
