Hi,

Our essential oils are among the very highest quality in the business...many of our customers are even YL distributors.

A synthetic Jasmine will not have the same biological properties as a true oil, as real Jasmine contains many, many individual molecules which act in synergy.

Hope this helps!

Young Living offers essential oils, although at a substantially higher price compared with Ananda. And they are not any better! IIRC, they use a multi-level-marketing approach, so you are paying a distributor's percentage of the profits, which is added to the cost of the oils.

Hi ~ Yes, the 3, 5 and 12ml bottles come with a Euro dropper cap, which can shake out approximately one drop at a time. 30ml and up are sent with glass eyedroppers. You can make your own blend in a mister, though in this case you would mix your oils at around 10% in water, and add an equal amount of 'tween' (found on the bottles page) which emulsifies the oils in water (shake well! about equal parts tween to essential oil - though we've found we can use about half that if we shake well on each use. The aroma of the tween is a little strong upon first mixing, but becomes much more subtle after 24hrs in the blend.

And yes, of course, a diffuser uses only the oils, and has a fully-adjustable output. We find this the easiest way.

Hope this helps!

Hi - no, absolutely not. The essential oils evaporate completely. The only time I 'contaminate' my foods is when I've just massaged my neck with Helichrysum, then eat something with my hands ;)

Hi - 'Mint' likely then means any oil with menthol, the best is a nice peppermint, though you could choose cornmint as a less-expensive, yet less 'floral' aroma. Spearmint will have the least menthol.

Hmmm...well, ALL essential oils are to be diluted for massage. Most massage blends will have around 2% essential oil in the carrier oil of your choice. You can use most EO's directly in a diffuser - no, no carrier oil is used with the oils in a diffuser, just use the essential oil alone.

Hope this helps!
