Q. Do I need carrier oils for to dilute the essential oils provided by Herbs Village?
A. A brief reply is yes. Essential oils are volatile and therefore quickly evaporate. The process of evaporation is much reduced when you dilute essential oils, since they are diluted in non-volatile substances. The oil is then carried into the skin by the carrier oil, meaning that low quantity of essential oils get consumed. The therapeutic advantage of a carrier oil also often improves the therapeutic advantages of the essential oil!

Q. Are any of the essential oils of Herbs Village re-distilled (first, second, third distillation)?
A. There is no need to redistill most basic oils. Only when you try to remove certain of the minor ingredients in the essential oil, this is performed. This is usually done in the food flavouring industry. It is also done in bitter almond oil with toxic substances such as hydrocyanic acid (cyanide). This oils must be legally redistilled since cyanide is so toxic. In such cases, a plant would be distilled to remove these minor constituents and then the basic oil would be partially distilled or re-distilled.
Q. How are the basic oils extracted by Herbs Village?
A. Most of the essential oils of HerbsVillage are extracted by steam distillation. Our citrus oils are extracted by means of cold extraction presses. A few are extracted by CO2 process and a few extracted by solvents are also available.
Q. Are the essential oils of Herbs Village, therapeutic?
A. All herbal oils are 100% pure, free of additives, adulterants or dilutions. They are of the highest quality and ideal for aromatherapy use. As the quality of the essential oils is not monitored by any organization,’ therapeutic grade’ is simply a marketing term. Any business can say that their oils are therapeutic. For internal standards of quality, some companies use other therapeutic grade terms or other grading or certification terms. These terms are, however, often marked by the company. Do not search for terms such as “Therapy Grade” when looking for the highest quality oils, as this term can be used by any company. Since no actual third person classification or certification of essential oils is available, it is best to look for a company that ensures the quality of its oils on the basis of test results and experts. GC / MS (Gas Chromatograph / Mass Spectrometer) tests and organoleptic tests are some important tests in ensuring the quality of essential oils.
