At Buhbli Organics, “100% pure” means all of our essential oils are Certified Organic by an internationally recognized and respected certifying body (USDA/QAI), produced by either steam distillation or cold pressing methods, undiluted, unadulterated, uncontaminated and confirmed as such through GC (gas chromatography) and MS (mass spectrometry) testing by a reliable and qualified 3rd party.
The best way to guarantee the purity of an essential oil is by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS). As of July 2017, all Buhbli Organics essential oils are GC/MS tested by Laboratoire PhytoChemia, a trusted, 3rd party, independent Canadian facility specializing in essential oil purity testing. GC/MS analysis reveals the full chemical composition and integrity of an essential oil and verifies the oil has not been diluted, adulterated or contaminated in any way. You can view the GC/MS report for each of our essential oils on our website. Just visit the page of the essential oil you're interested in, scroll down to the GS/MS Purity Report tab and match the lot number on your bottle with the lot number on the report for your own personal assurance of purity.
Most essential oils, if pure, are historically understood to have therapeutic benefits and therefore can be properly referred to as "of therapeutic quality". The recently popularized, often confusing and misleading term “therapeutic grade” is a term that was invented, trademarked and utilized primarily by MLM or multi-level marketing essential oil companies for marketing purposes. The term “therapeutic grade” has no official recognition or method of certification i.e. there is no such thing as “certified therapeutic” or any means by which to acquire “therapeutic certification”. The only official form of certification currently available for essential oils is that of Organic Certification, and all Buhbli Organics essential oils are USDA Organic Certified.
