Here at Chiro Effect, we are thrilled to add Veriditas Botanicals to our practice for massage therapy and retail!
We know the contents of these little glass bottles smell fantastic, but the possibilities of organic essential oils reach far beyond our nostrils. This liquid is the lifeblood of the plant world. The properties in these oils, which keep plants healthy, strong and beautiful, are available to us if their quality is preserved. This healing potential is taken very seriously in other countries like France, where the purple fields of lavender stretch for miles.
Why Choose Therapeutic Grade?
Most essential oils on the marketplace are traded through distributors or brokers and pass through many hands before reaching a retail store. These oils are often adulterated with substances that “boost” or “extend” one or more of the fragrant properties in the oil. One liter of pure, organic Lavender is sold for around $300. On the other hand, a liter of synthetic or adulterated oil is sold from $10 to $60. One can see why boosting and extending a true oil to increase profit margins might be a seductive choice.
Adulterated oils can also cause short term side effects such as rashes, burning or other irritations. It is unknown what long term effects synthetically treated oils have on human physiology.
In short, only use pure therapeutic grade essential oils, shipped directly from the producers that grow and distill them organically.
When an essential oil is labeled “organic,” this certification ensures that the plants were farmed, harvested, distilled and distributed according to organic methods. Following organic farming methods ensures that oils are free of pesticides, synthetics and adulterants.
This means that your oils are safe to apply topically and also can be taken internally depending on the plant.
