There is no private board or government agency that regulates the definition of a "pure" or "therapeutic grade" essential oil in the United States. A company can label an oil that contains very little essential oil as "pure". Any "badge" or label with these words is likely something copyrighted by the company. Some companies do publish the standards and definitions they use, so those words don't indicate that a company is being sinister. Look for definitions and standards to back up the label. The more information a company provides, the more likely you are to be getting top-quality oils. This standard for information applies to using Latin names to indicate specific plant strains, telling you exactly what is in a blend, information on how they test oils or have them tested, and when an oil is less expensive because it is blended with a carrier oil.
Just because an oil is "pure" doesn't mean that it is of the highest quality. The age of the plant, how and where it is grown, and even whether it is picked at the right time of day make a difference as to how much oil is in each plant, and the quality of that oil. So two pure oils from the same type of plant could still be of different qualities.
Smell isn't generally a good indicator of an oil's purity or strength. Our noses just aren't usually that sensitive, and there are many ways to enhance the scent of an oil that aren't necessarily good for you. Everything from adding natural scents or blending in cheaper oils that have a similar smell, to the addition of synthetic fragrances. (I am not making accusations here! Just explaining.) Oils that smell rancid or fermented should not be used, so scent is definitely of value in making those determinations.
“Food Grade” or “standardized” oils, made to taste or smell or behave the same way every single time, are almost always adulterated or blended, because natural products will differ from batch to batch based on the above listed variables. While these can be great natural products for manufacturers looking for consistency, they are not used for aromatherapy or other medicinal uses.
There is great debate over the internal use of essential oils! Of course, if you've eaten food, you've consumed essential oils. The question is concentration. It takes approximately 200 pounds of flowers to make one pound of lavender essential oil, so there are a lot of concentrated components in any oil. So while you've certainly consumed lemon oil if you've ever had a twist in your iced tea or martini, you haven't likely consumed three lemons' worth (or more) at one time. You can do great harm by ingesting an oil with which you are not familiar, or that is adulterated with pesticides or something unknown. The FDA does have a list of items “Generally Regarded As Safe” for use in foods in the amounts typically used for flavoring or preserving, and that is a good place to start. Just Google “GRAS Oils List”, it's copied on a million blogs so you don't have to do the digging on the government site :)
So how do you know which companies are selling you what? There is independent testing, but it's frequently more affordable for some companies to do the testing in-house. While independent testing is more transparent, in-house testing offers the ability for a company to test more batches. Some companies are able to test each batch, others take random samplings, and many rely on the testing done when they began working with a given supplier. You have to do the work and the research, or ask someone you know and trust. Like me, a stranger on the internet. (OK, but I really do my homework.) You have to take the plunge and order one of the tiny, pricey bottles along with the more budget-friendly option of the same oil. It might seem crazy to buy a 15ml bottle of oil for the same price, or more, as a 4 oz bottle, but if you want to do more than create scent, it's important. So that's what I did. I bought oils from different types of companies to see what I would find. I have bottles from super-cheap to top-of-the-line pricey but potent. I own oils from First Botany, NOW, Young Living, Simply Earth, WellnessScent, DoTerra, RMO, Living Pure, and several others. I stopped counting bottles at 100, because I don't want to admit that I might have a problem :) (That's over time, folks. Unless you're independently wealthy, don't try that all at once!)
I look for several things as I test oils. First, I check the company's website to see what information they provide on their products. The more information, the greater likelihood that you're dealing with a trustworthy company. I check for adulteration with carrier oils using the paper test, where I drop the oil on paper and watch for residue. I do use scent, comparing how long the scent of one brand lasts over another. Scent is subjective, but sometimes there's enough difference to make me look further. I also check for rancidity and any smell of fermentation. I look at the quality of the bottle, which should always be dark to protect real oils, though clear glass is cheaper. If it isn't glass, I didn't bother buying it in the first place. I feel the oils, which should, for the most part, not leave a slippery or oily residue on your skin after being “rubbed in” a bit. (I wash my hands quickly, and am careful with which oils I use topically in this way.) If I diffuse the oils, I watch for evidence of oily residue in my diffuser. I will also taste oils when appropriate, diluted appropriately and when I believe it safe for me.
About This Oil:
1. The company offers a boatload of information on their website. They use Latin names, tell you which part of the plant is used (the seed in this case), and document where and how the oil is distilled. They offer recipes for blending and advice for various uses. Just search the oil you want at simplyearth.com.
2. They also offer the chemical analysis of each oil, so you can compare them to oils from other trusted sources. This oil compared favorably to the Cedarwood Atlas from a pricey company costing more than double what this does. In fact, some of the main constituents of Cedarwood, specifically the Himachalene group, were shown in higher concentration in the Simply Earth oil. The only thing missing here, and it's being picky, is that I'd like to see batch numbers on the bottles to match up to the analyses. Batches can vary, and as natural products they should. That said, testing is expensive and testing random batches is how most companies operate.
3. This smells like Cedarwood Atlas should, as I describe below. There was no hint of either fermentation or rancidity.
4. Testing on paper showed no oily ring or residue.
5. Simply Earth Cedarwood Atlas is shipped in a dark amber bottle with a Euro-dropper (like an orifice reducer). The lid is made to go on tight, and seal well.
Cedarwood has a woodsy, sweet scent. It reminds me of fresh coconut shells, although I've not heard that from anyone else. It smells like a honeyed hope chest. It blends well with rosewood, bergamot, frankincense, ylang ylang, juniper berry, and many others. It works well in mens' cosmetics, when you may want something more woodsy.
Cedarwood is used in several ways. It has calming properties when used in aromatherapy and is used to relieve stress and anxiety. Used topically, it is a common treatment for acne, both adolescent and adult. It is used in both skin and haircare products to combat oiliness. Of course, cedar is known for its strengths as an insect repellent.
To make a homemade insect repellant, combine one tablespoon witch hazel (could use vodka), one tablespoon neem oil (or FCO, jojoba, or sweet almond), 25 drops citronella, 8 drops cedarwood atlas, 8 drops geranium, and 6 drops tea tree. Combine in a spray bottle and apply every few hours when you are outdoors. Spraying your clothes is an effective way to ward off bugs without using all the oils topically if you are outdoors all day. You can use the same oils in pure alcohol to make a room/closet spray for keeping the bugs out. For that purpose, I add a few drops of black pepper to the blend as well
I am a product tester specializing in natural products; however, I did NOT receive a discount on my purchase of this Cedarwood oil. I had purchased several of the company's products at a discount, and when I ran out of the Cedarwood from another company, I ordered this directly from the Simply Earth website. I hope you find this information helpful, and thanks for reading my review!
⭐️ This Cedarwood smells great, it has a nice, fresh, clean, woody scent that permeates the room well! It is nice and strong and diffuses, burns, and blends well. Passed the paper test, and oil floats on top of water just as it should. As someone who has been using essential oils in my home for over a decade, I am very pleased with the quality of this Cedarwood Oil.
✔️ PASSED THE PAPER TEST - (As have all their oils that I have purchased.) 100% Pure.
✔️COLOR & DENSITY OF OIL IS CONSISTENT WITH THAT OF CEDARWOOD.
✔️ ARRIVED WELL-SEALED - In Glass Amber Bottle with Orifice Reducer Caps.
✔️ SCENT - Fresh, Clean and Woodsy.
✔️ NICE, BIG, 15ML BOTTLES.
🛑 One thing I do wish is that more of their oils were available on Amazon, and that more of them were available with Prime shipping. Some are Prime, and some are not. The majority of Simply Earth's single oils are not available on Amazon.
🌐 BOTTOM LINE: I could not be happier with the quality of this Cedarwood oil. Simply Earth is a brand that I have grown to trust. If you have any questions leave them in the comments and I will be happy to answer.
I applied the oil (using the droplet included) on my cedar wood planks since their fragrance was weakening. After the application, the fragrance was strong again on the cedar planks. I use them in my drawers that hold some of my cashmere sweaters. There have been no holes so far in months (by moths), so that's a good sign that the cedar oil is working. I recommend it.
Product does smell nice and like Cedar though. Would have been 5-star had the bottle stood-up a little better.
