FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT ESSENTIAL OILS


What is a Carrier?

A carrier is a substance that delivers or transports essential oils to your body in a responsible manner. Our Seasame Oil and Apricot Oil are ideal carriers. WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND USING A CARRIER.

Our Mixing Oil is a combination of the following oils:
· Grape Seed Oil (Vitis vinifera)
· Apricot Kernel Oil (Prunus armeniaca)
· Safflower Oil (Carthamus tinctorius)
· Primrose Oil (Oenothera biennis)
· Tocopherol (Natural vitamin E)

Does Your Company Have Aromatherapists on Staff?

We have an experienced, competent staff that works solely with the essential oil line. In addition, several third-party experts assist us.

Why Our Essential Oils Are Different?

Our Essential Oils are guaranteed to be raw, genuine, unaltered, pristine, single species, and therapeutic. One would consider these qualities to be more than adequate when considering an essential oil purchase. And indeed, these are desirable and amazing qualities. However, Seema International offers two more guarantees that are even more dynamic in nature. You will want to become properly informed about them.

· #1 Our Company is able to trace their essential oils from plant to bottle.
· #2 Chemotyped oils are not used as a marketing ploy for greater profits.

To the average person who uses essential oils, these two statements may not, at first, be meaningful. However, I believe you will soon find tremendous value in these statements and become even more dedicated to our integrity.

The Essential Oil Industry

In most cases, money seems to be a driving force in business. It is the same in the essential oil industry. The flavor and fragrance industry, which consumes nearly 90% of the world's essential oil production, looks for essential oils that are of no particular quality, inexpensive, and plentiful. That industry then re-distills and blends these oils to suit the scent needs of other industries, including food consumables, cosmetic, personal care, and household. You can expect that both artificial and natural additives will be injected into these essential oils to perfect a desired flavor and smell that can be replicated.

The therapeutic essential oil industry and the flavor and fragrance industry have struggled over 20 years to have separate identities. Yet, even the therapeutic essential oil market struggles within itself to keep integrity.

Many companies involved in the therapeutic market see no problem crossing over and purchasing essential oils of no particular quality when necessary. Even when the more pristine, exclusive essential oils rise in price and are difficult to locate, our Company does not compromise. We are not interested in cheaper quality oils simply to gain greater profit.

Some essential oil companies seek selectivity by using acronyms such as AFNOR, which lead people to believe these letters are some kind of magic guarantee for purity. In fact, this is not the case. These marketing techniques only lead 'curious' people to investigate further. If you would like more information specifically on AFNOR, please request it from me.

The question always arises. How can the average consumer know the quality of essential oils they are buying? I've heard numerous people say, "You all say the same thing. How can an ordinary person know who is telling the truth"? I believe first and foremost, you must ask questions, and if you don't get the answers you want, or the answers that make sense, a red flag should go up. You also need to understand a little about essential oils, and this involves reading and learning. Essential oils may not be easy, but they certainly are worth it.
