Designation of the Plant's Producing Organ
It is of vital importance that the producing organ is identified and that the oil is sourced from the specific part of the plant that produces the most effective oil for the desired therapeutic effects.
For example, Cinnamon oil can be sourced from the leaves, bark, or roots. Each has its own distinct properties. Knowing that the most common cinnamon oil on the market is generally the most inexpensive, and not the most effective for our therapeutic purposes can also make ALL the difference in your Essential Oil experience!
Chemotype Specificity of the Essential Oil
The biochemical specificity is critical in knowing what unique characteristics are available for therapeutic uses, specific purposes, and safety precautions.
For example, there are several forms of Essential Oil of Thyme, each having its own therapeutic benefits and uses. Knowing the distinctions can keep you and your family safe and benefitting from the healing properties of Essential Oils.
Another example would be the Essential Oil of Eucalyptus. There are several chemotypes of Eucalytus, however Alexandria Brighton considers only Eucalyptus Radiata safe for use with children, the elderly, and those with a compromised liver.
Plant's Specific Botanical Species
Knowing a plants botanical species is another critical consideration when choosing an Essential oil. No where is this more evident than in the production of 'lavender'.
There are so many species of lavender that it has become one of the most prostituted terms in the Essential Oil word. Each species has its own unique properties and aroma, as well as therapeutic benefits. Knowing whether you have Lavendula Vera, Lavendula Fine, Lavendula Spica, Lavendula Hybrida, etc, can make ALL the difference in your end result.
