Guest post and giveaway from Lea Harris, from Nurishing Treasures:
A month ago in my Essential Oils 101 post I told you I wanted to test the quality of essential oils companies to see if we really need to fork over lots of cash – or if the less-expensive brand at the health food store would do the trick. I will be sending the same oil, frankincense, from 5 different essential oil companies (Young Living, doTERRA, Mountain Rose Herbs, Aura Cacia, and Essential Vitality) to a chemist and have him run them through his GC/MS, reporting back to me the constituents in the oils. I will be sending them to him un-marked brand-wise (they will be marked #1 – #5) so he won’t even know which brands are which. We will discover if they are all basically the same, or if you really do get what you pay for.
In that same post I asked for your support in raising $1,000 to cover the $200 that the chemist charges per sample, and I have been overwhelmed by your generosity! Thank you so much to all who have sent donations! If you would like to donate, you may send PayPal funds (Personal, Gift, please, so no fees are removed) to firstname.lastname@example.org. All donors are listed here and I will include your website if you add it to the “notes” section when you send your donation. A $25+ donation will get your website listed on the top of this page, and $40+ will get you bolded as well. Thank you so much!
This is the giveaway I promised the members of the Learning About Essential Oils Facebook group I would do when we reached the halfway point – a point we passed on Friday. Today all of you will have a chance to win The Essential Oils Handbook. I recently purchased this book, and it’s one of my favorites.
