What are Certified Organic Essential Oils?
Companies that obtain a USDA certified organic seal adheres to the strictest standards to bring you quality organic ingredients.
Some of these standards include:
No GMOs: Genetically Modified Organisms are prohibited in organic products. This means that an organic farmer can't plant GMO seeds and an organic producer can't use any ingredients containing GMOs.
Clean soil: The land where the products are grown must not have had any prohibited substances applied to it for at least 3 years before the harvest of an organic crop. Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering may not be used.
No harmful pesticides: Crop pests, weeds, and diseases are controlled primarily through physical, mechanical and biological efforts. If for some reason these methods are not working, a biological, botanical or synthetic substance that is approved on the National List may be used.
All organic, all the way: Operations must use only organic seeds and other planting material.
When you purchase a certified organic product, you are also helping to conserve biodiversity, ensuring that our natural landscapes and their ecosystems are maintained and intact for generations to come.
