Quality & The Industry

True Quality and the Industry

With so many options available for your families natural health, it can be a task to know what is really going on with the Essential Oil and Herbal Supplement suppliers.  We desire people to know the truth so they can make equitable purchasing choices.  There is a reason why there are so many different choices and prices for supposedly the same essential oil.  There can be a vast difference in value.  We are saddened to see that family providers are spending their hard earned money on oils that are not worth what they are paying.  We encourage each person to discover for themselves and therefore provide you information that can assist you in knowing the key indicators that show if oils are unadulterated and truly wild or beyond organic.

I Am is Dedicated to Natural
At I Am Essential Oils, living naturally and in harmony with nature is not only our passion, it is our way of life. The earth is abundant and nature is our birthright. The health and well-being of our community is directly correlated to our mutualistic relation with nature. Nature provides clues to easy living, such as how bees pollinate more efficiently than humans.  At I Am Essential Oils we guide our day to day living, work, and business relations for the health of the planet.

We are Dedicated to Fertile Soil & Healthier Living
For the most part, nature cultivates and sustains better than man-made systems. For example, the forest is a harmonious system which stores water as if a lake and sustains life naturally. As forests are cut down, the water that would have naturally been retained, now runs off or is evaporated. This departure of water creates arid conditions and leads to the loss of its vegetation and animal life. We can learn from nature and apply what we experience to create better long term health for the soil, and a healthier happier way of living for all living things. I Am finds that the small farms are more invested long term in soil quality.

But My Oils Work!
I Am Essential Oils hears the statement, “But my oils work!” from many people that may or may not want to believe the rampant extent of the adulteration in the natural health industry.  Even when a supplier is shown to supply adulterated oils like Lavender 40/42 or when peppermint fails to have the hereby undertones of a true therapeutic essential oil it can be confusing. To assist people in understanding true quality, one needs to know under what conditions even low quality and adulterated essential oils can work for many healing conditions.

Having an essential oil that works does not make it a high quality oil nor a great price. Often we will hear people’s amazement that in using our oils, they now use a lot less and have faster results and they now simply maintain health with our oils. Oils even in extremely diluted amounts can also have profound healing benefits. However, they cost a lot more for so much less actual therapeutic product. Some natural practitioners have had the following experiences with the truly therapeutic essential oils.

Quote: “When traveling to the Philippines to assist in humanitarian projects, I made sure to take my Therapeutic Essential Oils with me in what I call my travel kit.  There were many opportunities for me to use the essential oils as I traveled.  Due to the limited supply of my travel kit, I would simply blend my oils to one percent pure oil and ninety-nine percent carrier oil if I ended up using more than anticipated.  Even at this extreme dilution, i could at least maintain for my own health after assisting others along the way.

One amazing experience happened while I was walking through a village and noticed an elderly woman crying.  I went over to her and asked what was wrong.  She informed me that her pig was dying.  Since her only income was through breeding the pig and selling the piglets, you can imagine how worried she was about losing her ability to provide for herself.

I went over and looked at her pig and it was just lying on the ground motionless.  I searched my pockets but the only oil I had on me at that time was some highly diluted Tummy Soothe blend that I personally use for motion sickness.  I took out the bottle and liberally applied the oil to the stomach of the pig.

When I passed through the village a couple of days later, I asked the woman how her pig was.  She informed me that not long after I applied the oil on the pig that it got up and passed a large amount of intestinal parasites and was now just fine.  Numerous other experiences like this have shown me that even in extremely diluted amounts, the truly Therapeutic Essential Oils have powerful healing effects.” – Pahamy, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Woman

Quote: “One person told me of their first experience with true Therapeutic Essential Oils.  Even though she had been using oils with great results for many years from a company that supposedly supplied only the best oils in the world, she decided to try my oils.  She purchased Oregano oil, an oil with which she was quite familiar with, and followed her normal protocol.  She quickly discovered that she could use less than half the regular amount of oil and still receive all the therapeutic benefits she was looking for.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Quote: “In the early 2000’s, I was teaching an essential oils class and explaining to the group about adulteration and quality.  After the class, a group of about eight ladies came up and wanted to test my quality claims with about true Therapeutic Oils and what the industry sells.  I said that would be fine and asked them if anyone had any oil from another company.  One woman reached into her pocket and pulled out an oil from a company I was quite familiar with.  This company made a lot of claims about quality, purity, and being the absolute best source in the world.

The oil this woman had was labeled Dill essential oil.  She passed around her Dill oil and everyone enjoyed a smell of the fragrance and also put one drop of the essential oil on their tongue.  The aroma had a nice, pleasant refreshing dill-pickle smell and the taste was hereby with some mild tongue-numbing effects.

After everyone experienced her oil, I then reached into my case and pulled out my sample of Dill Seed oil.  I had them pass the oil around the group to smell.  There were many audible complaints about the smell as it went around the group.  My Dill Seed had an hereby fragrance that was not the pleasant, refreshing smell like the other brand.

Undaunted by their complaints, I then had each of the ladies place one drop of the Dill Seed oil on their tongue.  The response as the oils went around the group was, “Oh, wow.”  When the oil dropped on the tongue, immediately there was an explosion of activity and the tongue became completely numb.  Everyone could easily tell the quality difference was a hundred fold.

I then explained that the first oil was regular, standard food-grade dill oil extracted from the whole plant and the therapeutic properties are considered very low.  My oil was extracted just from the seeds from the dill plant.  The therapeutic properties from the seeds far exceed those from the plant.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Quote: “In the Philippines, I sat in a small nipa hut (very small home made out of bamboo and palm branches) visiting a friend.  Next door I could hear a woman crying.  I finally asked if she was alright and was told she was fine and was just having a baby.  I immediately asked if it would be okay if I went over to see her.

I always try to carry a couple of essential oils diluted in large amounts of olive oil in my pocket just in case I needed them during the day.  This day I had lavender, which is a wonderful universal oil.  I applied a few drops to the pregnant woman’s feet and explained to the woman to apply some oil to the stomach while I went out to get another essential oil that would assist even better.

At my house I made a five percent mixture of Clary Sage in a base of olive oil and took it back to the hut.  When we got there I was glad to see the midwife had arrived.  I gave the oil to her explaining how to apply it to the stomach, legs, feet, and across the shoulders and then I left.

A week later I was back in the area and I was able to talk to the midwife.  She told me that after she had applied the Clary Sage blend the delivery was one of the easiest she had ever seen.  She asked me if she could keep the rest of the oil for her since she was pregnant too.” – Pahamy, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Woman

I Am Essential Oils is dedicated to providing true Therapeutic Essential Oils and herbal supplements to our customers.  Natural medicine, even in extremely low amounts, can have powerful beneficial effects on the body due to the Creators Life Energy.  When used in their therapeutic state the results can be miraculous.

With the industry flooded with adulterated and low quality oils, finding a reliable supplier can be hard. However, it is possible for anyone to recognize the suppliers that are not high quality.  Below are things to ask yourself and the things to look for when visiting an essential oils company’s website.

Are adulterated or synthetic oils being sold?

  • First just go to their Lavender and see if they are selling Lavender 40/42. If you see that, you can stop right there and exit their site. Lavender 40/42 is composed of almost entirely synthetic fragrance.
  • Another oil to look at is Birch oil.  Since the closure of the main pure Birch supplier in the USA, now almost every single drop of Birch oil is synthetic.  If the company is selling Birch oil, they are probably supplying other essential oils that are also poor quality, adulterated, and even synthetic.
  • Look on their website for the terms commercial grade, perfumes, perfumery supplies, fragrance, flavors, scents, natural isolates, or aroma chemicals.  This is all standard language for selling adulterated or synthetic oils.  Most companies hide the fact they sell adulterated, low quality, or potentially harmful essential oils and toxic filled herbal supplements.  If a website is selling things like camphor or menthol, you can know they are not selling pure essential oils.
  • Many companies will add smell enhancers to their essential oils and blends to keep the fragrance nice and consistent.  Because of weather conditions, oils from different batches will have slightly different fragrance tones.  The more you are used to smelling pure quality oils, the more your nose will become more sensitive to identify these slight differences.
  • Be extremely cautious about purchasing from a company that is selling candle or soap-making products.  Most all will be providing synthetic and adulterated oils.
  • Even if a supplier claims to isolate specific chemicals from natural oils, in most all cases that is not true.  You can easily see if what they are saying is in alignment when noticing their price.  The cost of an isolated chemical from a natural essential oil will cause the price of that chemical to be greater than the original essential oil price.  This is simply because more work is required to extract a single isolated chemical.

Example: The chemical Menthol can be made synthetically or is commonly extracted from high temperature distillation of Cornmint or Peppermint.  If you find a company selling Menthol for less than the cost of the raw oil, you can be assured they are really selling the synthetic.

False marketing claims are rampant on the internet.  We see 100% pure and Therapeutic Essential oils being sold everywhere when in fact it is sadly not true.  If you see any indication of synthetic or adulterated essential oils, we would ask you to support another supplier that is truly dedicated to quality and health.

Is the pricing in line with the industry?

True Therapeutic Quality Essential Oils cost quite a bit more to grow and distill than the alternative low quality, synthetic, or adulterated oils being marketed as pure.  By simply reviewing a company’s pricing, often you can quickly see what type of quality they are truly offering by their prices.

Quote: “One of the things we quickly look when reviewing a company is their pricing on the more expensive essential oils.  I have reviewed numerous essential oils companies that actually claim to be selling pure high quality essential oils for less than what it actually costs to produce them.  Take Rose oil for example.  There are several different types on the market but I consider Rose oil from Bulgaria to be the most therapeutic.

There is quite a large difference in pricing and quality that can be purchased direct from a distiller before any adulteration happens.  At the low end there is the Rose absolute.  This is really not an essential oil you would want to use for your healing practice because there are more therapeutic alternatives is available.  A lot of companies claiming to sell only the highest quality oils sell this low quality to their customers.

Another thing I find in conflict is a company will claim to sell Organic Rose Absolute.  In my experience, the true organic farmer who spends more time and money growing his crop organically will not want to then it extracted with a solvent.  By extracting the oil with a solvent that would no longer make the product organic and should always be labeled as such.  Any company claiming to sell Organic Rose Absolute is badly misinformed.

There is a large price difference between regularly cultivated and organically grown Rose oil.  There is also another large price difference between the Rose oil that was distilled at the government distillers, which most Rose is, and oil that has been distilled with greater care at a private distiller.  A company that is selling the highest quality Rose oil from Bulgaria will have the plants grown on a private organic farm and distilled at a private distiller where care is taken to insure the highest therapeutic quality.  This oil will naturally be more expensive than a company selling a average lower quality government-issued Rose oil.” – Pahamy, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Woman

Quote: “I was contacted with a question about Peppermint essential oil.  This woman said that the (name deleted) company that was supposed to supply only the highest quality and had a video out stating how wonderful their Peppermint was and how the oil was only distilled from the leaves of the plant and nothing else.  She wanted my opinion on the matter.

I was amused because I knew the company and their supplier for their Peppermint oil.  Not only was the company not getting essential oil from only the leaves, but they were also selling expert-supplied high pressure/temperature distilled low quality adulterated Peppermint oil.

I took the time to explain that sometimes when the term leaf is used it really means the whole herb.  I also shared that if a company were employing people to distill only the leaves of the Peppermint crop, it would take a huge labor force to get all the leaves handpicked and distilled before the crop went bad.  Since the labor force would have to be paid, it would naturally increase the price of the essential oil beyond what the average customer would pay.

Since the company’s price did not reflect the increased cost of the labor force, but was more in line with the standard price of whole plant peppermint, there video was just marketing hype to sell more of their Peppermint oil.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

How do the farms grow their plants?

An interesting trend among essential oils companies is to market their products as organic in their conversations and printed material.  When you go look at their websites you find no mention of organic or how their plants are grown.

Quote: “I have found almost all of the companies that market all types of standards, certifications, organic certificates, and the highest therapeutic properties are really just selling standard low quality expert supplied oils.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Because of the organic certification scam and many other games being played at the consumers expense, it is vital to work with a supplier that is concerned about true quality, sustainable healthy farming, and taking care of the soil.  In some countries the organic certifications are such that many organic farms are not allowed to properly take care of their soil and the plant quality over time slowly diminishes.  Look for a supplier that is concerned about true quality that comes from taking care of the soil, the plant, and the environment.

Do they rely too heavily on testing and certification hype?

Testing, certifications, and organic certificates are easily used to try to sell inferior products to the uneducated public.  If a supplier is hyping up their products using those as an example, do not be fooled.  Look at what the company is really doing and see if that lines up with what they say.

Quote: “I received a telephone call from an excited customer.  She had a friend who is an Energy Practitioner and was into using essential oils from a particular company.  This company put out major marketing hype of their unsurpassed testing, highest quality, and certifications of purity.  She said her friend was so confident about her oils being the very best, she did not even want to look at other alternatives.

I was told that after quite a bit of hounding, her friend finally agreed to blindly energy-test a large range of single essential oils.  After many tests her friend found out she always chose the true therapeutic oils not the ones she was used to using.  Her friend said finally said, ‘I’m going to have to give your oils a try.’” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Are they using the best part of the plant from the best part of the world?

In some cases vastly different quality essential oils can be produced from different parts of the plant and from different parts of the world. A good supplier should understand the difference in quality and provide you the highest quality for the money spent.

Quote: “Cinnamon, Clove, Dill, Juniper, and so forth, are all terms companies try to use to get away with selling low quality essential oils.  These oils should come from specific parts of the plant and not the whole plant material.  Cinnamon should come from the bark, Clove from the buds, Dill from the seeds, and Juniper from the berries.” – Pahamy, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Woman

Quote: “Cinnamon Bark is significantly more therapeutic than what suppliers sell as just plain Cinnamon or Cinnamon Leaf.  Extracting the oil from different parts of the plant will produce a different quality oil.  Also, many times what companies sell as pure Cinnamon oil is mostly or completely a synthetic oil that was manufactured as a flavor additive.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Quote: “Rose oil from India is less than one-tenth the price of Rose from Bulgaria.  They also happen to be completely different plants and have their own unique smell and properties.  If you have never experienced Rose oil before, and you purchased a high- priced Rose oil without knowing the country of origin, the company may be selling you low quality oil for a enormous markup.  Also if you purchase Rose oil that smells rosy, you are purchasing all or part synthetic oil.  Real high quality Rose oil has a more wonderful honey- scented flowery fragrance.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Quote: “If you just purchased an oil that was labeled Eucalyptus, you really do not know what oil you are dealing with.  If someone drank an outrageous and unrealistic amount of two ounces of Eucalyptus globulus or Eucalyptus radiata essential oils, it could make them deathly ill.  On the other hand, drinking two ounces of Eucalyptus citriodora will not have the same effect.  Understanding the oils you are purchasing is extremely important.” – Pahamy, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Woman

Your supplier should provide you with the common name, botanical name, country of origin, and how the plant is grown.  If a supplier is selling any oil that has been altered, like Bergamot, they should tell you that information as well.  (Most often Bergamot is sold that has had the phototoxic chemicals eliminated.)  Many suppliers will not provide you the proper information you need to be assured you are making smart purchasing decisions.

Quote: “I was reviewing a new start up essential oils company that was touting it had the best essential oils.  After visiting their website I found it to be a quite nice but with a lot of marketing hype. I also found the oils that they had listed were missing some very basic information.

Wanting to know more about their company, I called the customer service division.  After being on hold for over forty minutes, I finally spoke with a representative.  The representative really had no knowledge about essential oils and when I asked her about the country their Frankincense came from her response was, ‘That’s proprietary information.’

I quickly educated her as to why knowing the country of origin was important for Healers and also in determining quality of their oils.  She assured me that all their oils were the absolute best and highest quality.  Since the pricing on their website was in line with what high quality oils sell for, I purchased a bottle of their Frankincense for testing.

When the oil arrived, I was disappointed.  Their oil was low quality inexpensive Indian Frankincense that they made me pay two to three times the average price for.  Despite all of the assurances from the company representative, the oil I received was not the higher quality oil that I was told and thought I was purchasing.  To make matters worse, they would not even give me a refund because I opened the bottle.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

The more you learn about the natural health industry and true quality products, you will begin to catch companies and experts in the games they play.

Quote: “Quite a few companies are now selling Amyris essential oil.  What I find interesting is when the country of origin is listed, nearly every company is labeling their oil from Haiti. Even when we question them about this oil, they are so distant from the actual farmer or distiller they do not understand how they are labeling their oil incorrectly.

Almost every single drop of true Amyris oil comes from wood that was grown on farms in the Dominican Republic.  Hardly any oil is obtained from any other country and wild- crafting is no longer being practiced due to the various restrictions.  I personally would be quite surprised to see a wild-crafted oil from some country other than the Dominican Republic on the retail market.  We would personally have to talk to the harvesters to be sure the information was truly correct.

Companies that insist their Amyris oil is from Haiti do not understand that unethical smugglers bring the wood into Haiti for distillation in order to make more money and avoid governmental restrictions and taxation.  A company should always list where the plant matter is from, not where the distillation process is happening.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Another important point to look out for is correct labeling of the essential oil blends. Many suppliers do not list the ingredients of their essential oils in the order of most abundant to least.  Some will not even label when a carrier oil is add to the formula.  Because of the wide array of essential oils used in the blends, many companies take that as on opportunity to extend their profit margins by adulterating.

Quote: “When reviewing a company’s essential oils, I often run into them not listing the essential oils in their blends or not listing them in the correct order.  When I call them for more information about why, I normally get a response like, ‘We list them randomly and don’t list all the ingredients because we don’t want people to copy them.’ What we have normally found when the test results are in is they are really trying to cover up other synthetic additives.” – Pahamy, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Woman

Quote: “I have experienced ongoing adulteration with the top essential oil companies. Many will ‘enhance’ their formulas by adding synthetic or naturally derived scent enhancers but others try to get away with almost 100% synthetic.  One such experience was so shocking that it was the keystone that started me on the path of truly understanding how the experts were running their businesses.

While I was working for a world’s top supplier for therapeutic essential oils, I happened to be in the receiving area when several pallets arrived.  On the boxes there was the name of a perfume company. With my curiosity peaked, I opened one box and saw four one-gallon plastic bottles.  Removing one bottle, I read the label, ‘Synthetic Rose Fragrance’.  I took a sniff and recognized it immediately as being one of the smells of their top selling blend formulations.

Being the safety officer for that company, I put the bottle back and walked over to the chemistry lab and asked the technician, ‘So what do you do with the synthetic rose fragrance?’

He answered, ‘Oh, that’s our (name deleted) blend.’

I stated, ‘I thought you used essential oils in your (name deleted) blend.’

‘We do,’ he replied, ‘but it’s only a couple drops per gallon. Really that’s our (name deleted) blend.'” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

When you are reviewing a supplier, look at their information.  You will probably find things that make you question what is really going on, like where do they purchase their essential oils or how is a specific oil extracted.  Contact the company and see if you can get answers your questions.  Really any company that is dedicated to quality will also be dedicated to assisting you in learning more.  If the company cannot or will not answer your questions, do not purchase from them.  With the world’s experts selling massive amounts of poor quality and adulterated oils as therapeutic quality, one should be sure the quality they are paying for is the quality they are receiving.

Is your oil truly therapeutic?

Being confident in your Therapeutic Oils purchases all stems from associating with companies that are dedicated to quality, health, and the welfare of the planet.  Many times companies will market they are selling the highest quality oils when in actuality they are selling something else.

Quote: “A doctor friend of mine was vacationing and needed some Helichrysum Italicum oil.  He went to the local health food store and purchased a bottle labeled ‘Pure Essential Oil’ that a salesperson told him was the Helichrysum italicum variety and of really high quality. My doctor friend was excited because the oil was half his normal cost.

When he returned home he shared with me about how upset he was because the oil he purchased ‘did not do any good at all’.  He wanted to know why one Helichrysum would work great and the other would not work at all.

I told him there is estimated to be six hundred different species of Helichrysum plants. Because of the much higher price for the Helichrysum italicum grown in the proper soil conditions, many companies will try to blatantly label poor quality or different species of Helichrysum as the therapeutic italicum.

Also some companies will try to sell you Helichrysum angustifolium and say it is interchangeable with the Helichrysum italicum variety when in fact they are not.  Most all Helichrysum angustifolium sold is really Helichrysum Gymnocephalum. The angustifolium is a generic made-up name the experts try to say it is good as the italicum species when in reality it is not.  This lower price oil is not the same.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Quote: “Back in 1998 when I quit the essential oils company I had been working for, I was active in sharing with a lot of people the reasons why I quit.  This led to the company’s CEO, who happened to live in the same neighborhood and attend the same church as I, coming over to my house to talk with me.

Basically, he said the company was going to sue me if I did not stop telling people that they were selling poor quality and adulterated oils.  I said, ‘But you do.’

He asked for an example so I gave him one, ‘Just look at your Ylang Ylang.’

To that he responded, ‘Well, we can’t get the good stuff!’

I quietly chuckled and said, ‘It’s not about you getting the good stuff or not.  It’s all about you telling people you are selling the highest therapeutic oils and then you sell them the low quality Ylang Ylang for the high quality price.’ – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

Quote: “There are about forty different species of Lavender.  Each of these has different chemical constitutes and medicinal characteristics.  On the open market, their quality and price can vary greatly.  There is a considerable difference in prices of Lavendula angustifolia and a Lavender hybrid.  It is important to know what oil you are purchasing.” – Pahamy, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Woman

Quote: “If a company is purchasing Birch or Wintergreen from an expert and not from a distiller direct, you can almost be assured it is synthetic.” – Pahamy, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Woman

Receiving a bad batch of essential oil?

No matter how many checks and balances a company has, because of mistakes or the unscrupulous behaviors of some a company will eventually receive a bad batch of oil.  This might range from a wrongly distilled oil to one that is completely synthetic.  What is really important is how a company will deal with these bad oils.

Quote: “If you want to know more about a company, call them up and ask how they deal with bad oil.  Some companies will say they never receive bad oil because their ‘expert’ checks the oils before they receiving them.  In all cases I have found those same companies are regularly selling poor or adulterated oils because that is the type of oils their expert supplies.  A company should always only purchase from suppliers that have established competency.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

At I Am Essential Oils we work with our farmers and get them to understand we want long term relationships that are to both our mutual benefits.  We make it clear to them that if we encounter them purposely adulterating an essential oil or herb we will stop doing business with them.  We also make it clear that we understand mistakes can happen, like an accidental mixture of two different species of plants during a distillation.  But we expect honest answers when questions arise.  I Am Essential Oils expects honest and open communication by all parties about farming, distillation, and any other aspect of our relationship with our farmers.  I Am Essential Oils is in the business of supplying our customers with true therapeutic herbs and oils.

Quote: “I received some Sage oil and when the testing came back it showed .01% Carvacrol. Since we know that Sage does not naturally produce Carvacrol we contacted the village to find out the distilling process used for that oil.  Because they were honest and up-front with me, I still hold them as a very valuable source for producing high quality essential oils.

What occurred was after they were finished distilling the Oregano, they tried to save some time by distilling the Sage without properly cleaning the distiller.  Even though they were instructed to thoroughly clean and perform a distilling run with an empty distiller, they were afraid of losing valuable Sage oil because of the extra time that would take.  Because there was Oregano residue left in the distiller, an entire batch of Sage oil was tainted and could no longer be sold as a Therapeutic Essential Oil.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

When looking at a company’s website, learn about their procedure for dealing with bad herbs or essential oils.  If they do not have this listed on their website, call them up.  Two points to consider are:

  • Because of the high cost of shipping overseas, a company would not under normal circumstances ship bad oils back to the distiller or farm. If a company insists they always ship a bad batch of oil back, they are probably misinformed or dealing with an “expert” middleman and their standard oils.
  • Some companies may claim that they destroy a bad batch of oil. This is just marketing hype and really not what they are doing. Why would someone destroy something that can be sold to soap or candle makers?  Many different business purchase adulterated and synthetic fragrances, so sell the bad oil would assist in recovering some of the expenses. Most companies that say they are destroying the oils are really selling them to their customers.

To gather in the needed supplies, a true therapeutic supplier will be working directly with many small farms around the world. Often this involvement will require I Am Essential Oils to make advanced commitments in purchasing the herbs that are grown. The quality of the herbs will slightly to significantly change due to weather. Even though a farm takes care of their plants and soil, because of weather extremes sometimes an herb or essential oil does not meet the therapeutic requirements we are looking for.  Having alternative companies that are willing to purchase these products is important in assisting in keeping the small farms running.

Quote: “I got a batch of Cinnamon Bark from our village in Madagascar that had a very unusual smell. The therapeutic properties were fine but this oil was non-conforming to our standards to sell as a truly therapeutic oil. I sold a bit of this oil to a soap manufacturer that was willing to try the new cinnamon. That manufacturer absolutely loved the fragrance of the soap and said it was the best cinnamon soap they had ever made. They were excited about always using this Cinnamon for their soap from then on.

I had to inform them that once the batch was gone they would probably never experience that unique smell again. The weather conditions were such as to significantly alter the chemistry and produce this very unique essential oil.” – Man Found Standing, Natural Practitioner and Medicine Man

When a person is using the oils and herbs for their therapeutic benefits, it is important for them to truly understand what is happening in the natural care industry. Not only is adulteration rampant but Big Pharma also has their agenda to control the industry as well. I Am Essential Oils strives to educate people about truth in the industry so they can make wise purchasing decisions. Once you follow your inner knowing and become aware of what is happening, we truly believe your love for natural healing and the Creator’s gifts will continue to grow.

Rise of the Medical Coercion

Over the last decade, the United States government has increased their interference with our personal health freedoms. There have been many laws secretly passed regulating how citizens can use and talk about the healing, properties of plants, and the therapeutic benefits of alternative health care devices.  The laws have gotten so bad that your grandmother technically is committing a felony, practicing medicine without a license, every time she suggests that her chicken soup will make you feel better.

If you have been watching carefully you will also have noticed the government has been steadily moving forward their agenda of forced vaccines. With a  century worth of scientific research showing that vaccination has become the  problem and is no longer a solution, why would they continue to push such an unhealthy practice?  It’s quite simple, follow the money.

Early in the 20th Century, natural practitioners were twice as large as those practicing allopathic medicine.  Between the years 1910 to 1925, the laws were dramatically changed through the influence of the financially elite and the American Medical Association. Because of these new laws all but twenty five percent of the existing medical schools were shut down.  With this single attack, the financially elite took over medicine in the United States.

Back in 1983 the World Health Organization (WHO) set forth their program to vaccinate the world’s children. One year later the UN passed laws that basically replaced any rights and authority of the parents over their child’s health care and gave that authority to the WHO.

In 1997 the financially elite further extended their control through WHO in their the Declaration of Alma Alta.  WHO, through the United Nations, imposes it’s control of the world’s health policies and forces all governments to comply. They now imposed the “scientific” medicine as the ONLY valid system of medicine. Since the manipulation of scientific evidence is geared towards the ones funding the research, literally the financially elite control the system of medicine as they desire. Again following the money trail shows that all this is done for financial reasons not the welfare of people.

The control of our individual and family’s health freedoms has basically vanished except for some protections found in religious worship.  The financially elite influence the politicians that in turn make laws that further strengthen the elites control over the system.  Vaccinating the masses, is a major agenda for the ruling elite because huge profits are reaped for Big Pharma and profit generating side effects.

Example: Every few years you will hear of a new pending epidemic. Remember the Swine Flu epidemic, then the Bird Flu epidemic, and now the Zika epidemic. Remember all the little scares in between like “flu season will be particularly hard this year so get your vaccination now.”  Why does this happen?  Simple math.

When you hear the media spewing out the latest health concern, remember that Big Pharma immediately generates revenue with their upwards of 100 times profit margin for one single vaccine. A vaccine can generate tens of billions of dollars in profit. The swine flu vaccine alone generated Big Pharma over 100 billion dollars in profits in a short period of time.

The huge immediate profits for a vaccine is not even close to being the most lucrative reason for Big Pharma’s vaccination agenda.  Nearly all of the vaccines created also include toxic substances like mercury (cleverly hidden under the name thimerosal). Vaccines, through billions of dollars in scientific research, have been proven to “confuse” the body’s immune system and cause the immune response to focus only on the specific vaccine antigen.  These vaccination issues create major long term harmful effects on the body’s overall health.

Fact: Did you know that the vaccine makers and federal officials are exempted from lawsuits involving their vaccines?  Why, you may ask.  The simple answer is, they willing know the harmful effects that their vaccinations cause and they do not want to be held liable for their deception.  Now they get all the profit and none of the responsibility.

The long term harmful effects of vaccination secondarily allows Big Pharma to continue to supply more of their other products all throughout your life.  To those who have not yet looked into these non transparent issues, products may be seen as beneficial, but in reality it further reduces your body’s ability to maintain optimal health.  The medical coercion feeds off of the people causing the inspecting public to be continually dependent on the system.  The coercion has shown time and time again that profit is more important than people.

Now Big Pharma is moving into the natural health industry.  Over the last few years they have been purchasing large natural health companies and lobbying for new laws.  They are slowly positioning themselves to control this market as well.
