|Thanks for the info, now I just need a loan from the bank to afford the oils - haha. While comparing prices between a few sites listed, I did see that Faeriesfinest has extracts of alot of these, and a more reasonable price than the oil. Have you ever used these extracts? I figure they won't be as potent, but a little easier on the wallet. |
No, and I was unaware of Faeriesfinest who apparently has a good selection of food grade essential oils. Those "all natural" extracts are not necessarily of the ingredients that the names suggests. For example, "almond extract" might contain extract of apricot pits and not almond and still remain "all natural." It is the same ruse as "100% juice" that you see on bottles of cranberry juice cocktails. The manufacturer hopes that you will wrongly interpret that as "100% cranberry juice."
As for the price of essential oils, typically steam distilled essential oils have a very long shelf life and 1 oz. will serve one person for a life time. So, maybe, you should amortize the cost over your lifetime.
