Organic Essential Oils

Within this article, I loosely refer to all the volatile aromatherapy oils including essential oils, absolutes and CO2s collectively as "essential oils."

Organic Essential OilsOrganic essential oils are usually superior to non-organic oils.

There are two families of thought on this topic. Organic oils are distilled or extracted from plants that are grown without pesticides. Since it takes a great deal of plant material to create even a small amount of essential oil, it certainly makes sense that oils distilled from non-organic plants may have pesticides in them.

Some say that pesticides do not appear in the oils and thus it doesn’t matter. Frankly, I am not a chemist and I haven’t come upon scientific research that gives me enough information to make a solid conclusion one way or the other.

What I have personally noticed, however, is that the overall quality, therapeutic benefit and aroma of organic oils seem superior to oils that I have sourced from companies that sell non-organic oils.

What may be occurring is this: Vendors that sell organic essential oils may be sourcing their oils more carefully for not only oils that are grown in compliance with organic farming principles but may also be more carefully sourcing their oils for therapeutic quality and aroma.

So the choice is yours. Do expect to pay more for oils distilled from organic plants since it does cost a lot more to grow crops via organic means and to obtain/maintain organic certification.
