I am working toward and studying for my certification in aromatherapy. I recently order three oils from Simply Earth - Lavender, Cajeput, and Juniper Berry. This is a new company to me but after I purchased a set of their bottles, I was so pleased I wanted to try their oils. Each oil was packaged in a very cool box that slides out. The box explains a little about the company and how they give back to by donating 13% of sales to stop human trafficking. I am not a purist in the sense that I do not stay exclusively with a single manufacturer or distributer so I am not stuck on any company. There is a simple test I use to test my oils. If the essential oil is really the pure essence, I should be able to drop a sample on plain white paper and it will dry without residue, perhaps a discoloring but nothing more. Here are my findings: All of the oils dried without color or residue. These oils are real. The Lavender is a wonderful oil on its own or blends well with other oils. I added three drops of the Lavender and a drop of Cajeput and a drop of Juniper Berry in my room diffuser and enjoyed the calming peaceful affect of the pure essential oils. I received this product at a discount but I was not asked to provide a review. My reviews are to help others make informed decisions about their purchases and to provide ideas about how a product may be used. I personally value customer reviews when making buying decisions.
