Answers

How do I know if the oil I purchase is pure?

Guaranteed Quality. In 1983, OSA began as a company exclusively dedicated to aromatherapy, and the beauty and superiority of truly unadulterated authentic essential oils. Then as now we believe paying a little more for a smaller quantity of an authentic oil is a much better deal than buying more of a cleverly diluted product. We have only on objective: To offer genuine and authentic essential oils.

We maintain that knowing the producer is the best safeguard against adulteration. While we also analyze our essential oils by GC/MS, we do know that analysis alone has not kept adulterated oils out of aromatherapy. To the contrary, analysis hype is often used to sell cleverly adulterated oils. However, a specific essential oil from a specific producer and a given batch, can be matched against the fingerprint of the original. It's authenticity can be established without a doubt.

 

How do I store my oils for a long time and keep them fresh?

The best way to keep an oil fresh, for a prolonged period of time, is to store the oil in a glass or an aluminum container. Keeping an oil in a location with possible direct sunlight is not recommended.

 

What is the difference between 'G&A', 'Certified Organic' & other types of oils?

G&A - Genuine & Authentic
Certified Organic - Certified organic by such organizations as Ecocert or AB
Demeter - Grown and processed according to the DEMETER organization for organic farming
Wild - Gathered in the wild
Simples - Grown and processed according to the "Syndicat Inter Massifs Pour la Production Et L'Eonomie Des Simples". Arguably the most rigorous guarantee of biodynamic quality.
Vintage - An oil from a certain batch / year / specific location
