Plant Therapy carries both USDA-certified organic and non-organic essential oils that are derived with all 4 methods disclosed on product pages: steam distillation, CO2, cold press, and solvent extraction. Read more about essential oils and natural fragrance here and which essential oils should be avoided during pregnancy here. For more information, read below.
As for the solvent extraction method, they assure that the solvents are not present in the oils and you can see that information in their test reports.
What I like about them is that they disclose Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) reports for their essential oils. I have interviewed with their formulators, and I really like it that they rigorously test the batches of oils and disclose the test reports on their product pages. They make sure that the essential oils adhere to the ISO component breakdowns. They also have a team of analytical chemists and certified aromatherapists to ensure the purity and high quality of the essential oils. Plus, they provide a lot of education on the website on how to use essential oils.
Normally, we don’t recommend using diffusers, but if you want to use one, Passive Lotus diffuser is the safest version.
In addition, Plant Therapy offers a collection of candles made of soy and coconut wax blend and a cotton wick. Along with essential oils, they are scented with natural fragrance for stronger scents. Normally, I do not recommend products with natural fragrances because they are mixtures of undisclosed ingredients. But the good news is that Plant Therapy discloses all the ingredients of their natural fragrances, so be sure to check out the candles. These are good options for people who prefer stronger scents.
