Are Okapi Bay's essential oils 100% pure?
All our essential oils are of the purest, highest quality, free from any additives, adulterants or dilutions. The term ‘Therapeutic Grade’ is marketing terminology used by many retailers to emphasise the quality of their oils. In reality the only recognised way to know the purity of essential oils is through testing, using GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry) tests. We provide independent 3rd party testing for all source batches of our single essential oils. The test results for each single oil can be found by clicking on the COA link under the 'Source' tab on the product page. Our blends are made from these same single oils, as such they do not need to be tested again.
Do OKAPI BAY provide organic essential oils?
Can OKAPI BAY Essential Oils be ingested?
They are extremely concentrated and can cause some serious damage if ingested, without the necessary expertise required in there use. We only promote the use of essential oils in a diluted form for aromatherapy and topical use. However, if you wish to do so, we recommend it only be done with great care, and only under the direction of a qualified consultant or physician.
