Which Essential Oil Company to choose?

Hello, my lovely Essential Oil Lovers!

I have received the most famous question many times: "Which Essential Oils Company should I choose, and can I trust?"

Please note, what I write in my text below is my opinion, and by all means, please do your research as well. You might see things in a different light. You might not like what I suggest. You might find this helpful, and it will help you to make a decision. All the above points are valid :-)

How did I get to my choice of company (companies)?

Many of you know that I love Essential Oils since the age of 11, but as a therapeutic choice and professional business, I only engaged with essential oils much later. Well, at the age of 11, it would have been difficult anyway.

Many of you also know that I started with doTERRA thanks to a friend of mine in Santa Cruz, California. I will ALWAYS be grateful to the introduction, BUT I have evolved in my opinions, research, business, etc. since then.

I'm not saying doTERRA has terrible oils....

Steam Distillation of Essential Oils

Depending on the nature of the plant material and the different solubility behaviors of the individual plants, various methods for obtaining the essential oils or absolutes are needed. To achieve the best quality, the production must be as gentle as possible. In particular, the factors oxygen, light and heat can adversely affect the quality of the essential oil when oxidation occurs. 

Steam distillation of Essential Oils
By far the most popular method for centuries is steam distillation, which causes complete extraction. The steam is generated in a boiler, and the oils are released from the plant with the help of steam.

The steam can transport all substances, that are light enough, up. The water vapor with the essential oils accumulates in the cooling coils and will now condense.

Since essential oils do not mix with water and are lighter than water (except for cinnamon), the oils float on top of the water. This amount of oil is also very...

Jasmine Essential Oil

1000kg of plant material (fresh flowers) is necessary for 1kg of essential oil.

Why is jasmine essential oil so expensive? 1000kg of fresh, hand-picked flowers (7.5 million flowers) are required to produce 1kg of the essential oil. This special scent (it has aphrodisiac properties) is in high demand in the perfume industry and it reflects in the price. 

The jasmine flowers are harvested by hand at night or early in the morning, before the sun rises, so that the largest possible amount of essential oil comes can be captured from the flower.

Jasmine has a long-lasting aroma and is so powerful that one drop in a 30ml carrier oil is enough for a massage, for example.

It is a bit difficult to describe the scent of Jasmine, but you can generally say it is beguiling. The jasmine oil enhances our imagination, lets us express and admit our feelings, it is easier to open up to other people, thus increasing the willingness to surrender, even during physical love.
