Skin is the body’s largest organ. It absorbs what you put on it.
Essential oils are highly concentrated. It makes sense that if chemicals are used on the plant from which we extract the oils, there is the potential for these chemicals to be carried over to the oils if they survive the distillation process. I've see arguments on both sides of the organic coin. My decision is to use organics or oils made from unsprayed crops because, if for no other reason (and there are many other reasons), they are easier on the environment. I will address this topic in a future blog.
Read labels. Know what you are using. Choose wisely.
