Essential oil grades can seem complicated when determining which oil will best suit your needs, but if you follow the lead of professional aromatherapists, selecting Certified Organic is the best choice you can make.
World Organics Essential Oils are 100% organic.
What is Certified Organic?
When recognising the benefits of Certified Organic products, it is important to understand what it means to be accredited. Farmers, growers and producers that have achieved organic status are known for some key unique features in their farming production methods –
• No synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers
• No exposure to GMOs
• Focus on social responsibility
• Focus on environmentally sustainable practices including soil and land health and balanced eco-systems
In Australia, Australian Certified Organic (ACO) is the leading certifying body and in New Zealand BioGro – both have international recognition for adhering to extremely high standards. All of World Organics oils are certified by BioGro.
Trust, Honesty & Integrity
In a clinic environment, Aromatherapists need to have complete trust in the quality of the essential oils they utilise to treat their clients. They seek products that are 100% pure and natural to ensure they have the maximum therapeutic benefits and provide high level potency.
Certified Organic essential oils meet these needs with their superior aromatic profile and comprehensive constituent content. The transparent nature of the certification guarantees a trustworthy supply chain and secures the integrity of the product.
Without independent organic certification the grade of the oil is subject to the seller’s marketing strategy. If an oil has the claim of therapeutic grade, we recommend considering what this actually means. Who is the oil graded by and to what specification? Certified Organic is the ultimate pure grade available in the market.
It is also important to know that there can be seasonal variation with Certified Organic essential oils. As they are the purest form of oil extracted from plant material, they are susceptible to some variation year on year. Harvesting times, climatic changes including temperature, rainfall, sunlight and soil condition all impact the final plant health and subsequently can cause differences to the essential oil scent and constituent chemical analysis. These variations are mostly minimal and very seldom impact the efficacy, and may only be noticeable to professional users of essential oils.
