What are Adulterated Oils?

Unfortunately, not all essential oils are made the same. There is an increasing amount of essential oils on the market that are low-quality or adulterated. Adulterated oils are mixed with other things, making it possible to produce inexpensive oil. Though this makes it possible for more people to purchase and enjoy oils, it is delivering a low-grade, and possibly dangerous, oil. 

The purity of essential oils is vital to not only their effectiveness, but their safety as well. Essential oils are rich in molecules that help carry oxygen, nutrients, and other substances through the cell membranes. Combine essential oils with impure or toxic substances, and they will take those poisons right into every cell of your body.

Not only that, but unsuspecting consumers may apply oils only to find that the supposedly pure essential oil irritates because it contains added chemicals and components that are irritating to the skin.

Instead of experiencing the benefits of wholesome essential oils from Young Living, consumers may instead be poisoning themselves unknowingly, or decide that essential oils don't work because they tried using inferior essential oils.

One of the most common adulterated oils is Frankincense. Many versions of Frankincense include alcohol, gum resin, and various solvents. These chemicals can lead to burns, irritation, and weakened benefits of the oil.

Another of the most common adulterated oils today is Lavender. A large portion of Lavender oil on the market is actually lavandin. It comes from Russia, China, France, or Tasmania, and is then mixed with synthetic chemicals. In addition to the lavandin, the compound contains linalyl acetate, various petrochemicals, camphor, and propylene glycol. It is then marketed as Lavender oil. This is dangerous because consumers use the product as natural Lavender oil, which it is not. As a matter of fact, lavandin can cause counter-effects for many of the problems Lavender oil eases.

Young Living uses only True English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia). For a better understanding of the different types of Lavender, CLICK HERE.

In addition to adulterated oils, there are also completely synthetic versions of common oils. Some of the world’s best known manufacturing companies use synthetic oils in their products, claiming the benefits of the given oil, but rarely pointing out the oils used in their products are man-made.


Bargain prices - $9.00 for 1/2 oz. of "pure, organic" lavender oil, $25.00 for "pure" frankincense.

Consider making sure that your oils are pure and undiluted.
