ADULTERATED OILS: Here's What You Need to Know

Unfortunately, not all essential oils are the same. When you take a look at the amount of essential oils that are on the market, you’ll find that a lot of them are low quality and you will also find that they are made with other things as well. This makes it much easier for companies to produce a very inexpensive oil, while also selling it for a much higher price. Some adulterated oils can be very dangerous as well and for this reason, it is very important that you do everything you can to choose a reputable provider for your oils while also making sure that you are doing everything you can to use them properly. Read on to find out more.
Adulterated Oils
Some of the most common adulterated oils include frankincense. Frankincense can include alcohol, solvents, gum resin and more. When you apply this to the skin you may find that this can cause burns, irritation and in some instances it just might not work.

The Dangers of Adulterated Oil
It is very important for you as a consumer to remember that even if you use pure oil, it can still be dangerous. Nothing can quite compare to the danger of using an oil that isn’t what you think it is, and for that reason, you need to make sure that you don’t focus on the price alone. Cheap oil can contain dangerous chemicals that can damage and irritate your skin, not to mention that if you choose to inhale these oils then it can cause even worse side effects.
Why Do Adulterated Oils Exist?
Adulterated oils exist because companies want to do everything they can to boost profits. They do this by adding odorous or even non-odorous substances. The more expensive oils are often subjected to more adulteration, and this includes jasmine, rose, neroli and even sandalwood. It is possible for these oils to be mixed with chang oil, coriander seed oil and even tea tree oil as well. The cheaper essential oils are less likely to be adulterated, and this includes eucalyptus and even orange oil.

If you want to find out whether the oils you have are adulterated or if you want to find out if they are what they say they are then take a look below. We’ve made a list of all the tell-tale signs for adulterated oils.
Knowing a Dangerous Oil
Most pure oils will not leave an oily mark when they are dried. This does not work with citrus oil or absolute oils however. If you know that your oil contains alcohol then you should be able to smell this as soon as you open the bottle.

Most pure EO will not leave an oily mark when dried, however, some pure essential oils will leave a mark, especially expressed oils (citrus) or absolutes. When you add oils to water, the oil should float on the top as opposed to sinking, so this is another great way for you to find out if the oil you have now is what it says it is.
