Below is a chart that shows the types of Essential Oils that are common in the industry. The first is “Synthetic”; which is used in the Perfume and Industrial industry. These oils are made up of synthetic compounds or are chemically engineered. This makes up the biggest part of the Essential Oils sold today. The second is “Food Grade”; these oils are used in the food industry. For an Essential Oil to be used in the food industry it only has to pass as “Generally Recognized as Safe”, commonly known as the GRAS Standard. The third is Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. These can be purchased in dollar stores, body and bath stores, health stores and more. For many years, this has been the highest standard of oils in the market. Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils go through a testing process called Gas Chromatography. Most reputable companies in the Essential Oil industry conduct this test. This test checks and insures that the oil contains the correct compounds; however, it does not determine if the oil contains any impurities, pesticides or other chemicals. The small dot in the center is CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. This is the highest standard of Essential Oils in the market today. All doTerra Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Essential Oils are third party tested. The first test is the Gas Chromatography and the second is Mass Spectrometry. The Mass Spectrometry test checks all the compounds in the oil and also checks for pesticides or any other impurities that may be present in the oil. doTerra Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Essential Oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure, natural and free of synthetic compounds or contaminates.
