Lea from Nourishing Treasures has been on a mission to test the quality of essential oil companies. Her desire is to see if we really need to fork over lots of cash for essential oils, or if the less-expensive brand at the health food store would do the trick.
Lea will be sending the same oil, frankincense, from 5 different essential oil companies (Young Living, doTERRA, Mountain Rose Herbs, Aura Cacia, and Essential Vitality) to a chemist and have him run them through his GC/MS, reporting back to her the constituents in the oils. She will be sending them to him un-marked brand-wise (they will be marked #1 – #5) so he won’t even know which brands are which.
We will discover if they are all basically the same, or if you really do get what you pay for. I am excited to see these results!
Lea has asked for support in raising $1,000 to cover the $200 that the chemist charges per sample, and has been overwhelmed by your generosity! Thank you so much to all who have sent donations!
If you would like to donate, you may send PayPal funds (Personal, Gift, please, so no fees are removed) to email@example.com. All donors are listed here and she will include your website if you add it to the “notes” section when you send your donation.
A $25+ donation will get your website listed on the top of this page, and $40+ will get you bolded as well. Thank you so much!
