"Every goDésana Essential Oil is either USDA Certified Organic or Wild Harvested (which can be even better)." ~ Our promise
Organic and Wild Harvested Essential Oils are far superior in quality and have an increased ability to affect healing. They are packed with increased healing energies, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other healing constituents.
Why is Certified Organic and Wild Harvested so important when talking about Essential Oils?
Did you know that organic produce has more vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, healing constituents, and healing energy than non-organic produce? Ask any health food store owner, or committed raw foodist . . . they will have very strong data and opinions on this.
Consider the fact that an Essential Oil is 75 - 100 times more concentrated than the plant material it came from. So when you distill an Essential Oil from organic and wild harvested plants you are garnering healing energies, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrients, and healing constituents that are 75 - 100 times more concentrated in the resulting Essential Oil.
Organic and Wild Harvested Essential Oils are literally packed with the innate healing wisdom of the plant, and they DO NOT HAVE contributions from things that shouldn't be a part of them, like herbicides, pesticides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, sewage sludge, etc.
It's easy to check if the Essential Oils you're using are Organic and Wild Harvested or not. Every bottle should have that distinction on the label along with the country of origin. If you currently have Essential Oils that you're wondering about, just pull out your Essential Oil bottle and look for ORGANIC or WILD HARVESTED right on the label.
Truly organic and wild harvested Essential Oils can cost more to acquire and can be more challenging to obtain. So if a company is going to the expense and the effort to have truly organic and wild harvested oils they will NOT forget to put it on the bottle. They will proudly display that distinguishing factor!
Why is Wild Harvsted sometimes preferred over Certified Organic?
In some cases Alexandria Brighton and goDésana will choose to use an oil that is Wild Harvested instead of Certified Organic. Some oils that are Certified Organic, for one reason or another, just don't measure up to Alexandria's unequaled standards. Perhaps the ratio of healing constituents is 'off'. . . or some such thing.
Wild Harvested plants are herbs that have been gathered from their natural environment, usually from smaller farms that Alexandria has sourced a specific oil from. Remember the geographic environment is one of the most crucial factors when looking at the healing chemical constituents that are produced by a plant. Wild Harvested plants are also usually organic as well. The plants are sustainably gathered, and the plants are re-seeded or roots are left to re-stock native populations.
Please be aware that this is not the ONLY factor to look for when searching for high quality, effective Essential Oils, but it's a good place to start. It will also help you eliminate some of the "big" companies that are claiming their oils are the best, but they're not even Certified Organic or Wild Harvested.
