How to identify the quality of refined oil bottle is a problem we are very concerned about, there are a wide variety of essential oils on the market, even if professional aromatherapy division can not provide you with a set of scientific accurate and simple and effective identification methods, sometimes you will dazzling.
Choose the essential oil brand with leading sales, well-known reputation and regular shopping mall counters, which can greatly reduce the possibility of buying inferior essential oil, and is the safest and simple choice.
How do you tell the difference between good essential oil and a bad essential oil?
Essential oil because of its easy oxidation characteristics, so the packaging requirements are very strict, so refined oil bottles are generally used in dark packaging bottles. First of all, the real pure essential oil (100%), the raw material suppliers basically use aluminum cans to fill the unilateral essential oil (whether domestic or imported).
The smallest aluminum cans are one kilogram, there are 5 kilograms 10 kilograms, the largest size is not very clear. But because the price of pure unilateral essential oil is higher (domestic and import still have not big difference), so 5 kilograms and 10 kilograms are more common (to the manufacturer). But for essential oil producers, the bottles of choice are glass bottles, mainly because aluminum cans are expensive (there are also smaller cans available).
A brief introduction to glass bottles. The same glass bottle is not the same price of different manufacturers, domestic and imported is not the same. Frankly speaking, the quality of foreign bottles is really better than that of domestic ones, the domestic ones are generally recognized as elegant in Shanghai (it is a pity that it is a Japanese factory), Beijing's Weidun and Tianjin's Fidelity compared to my personal feeling or almost.
Generally speaking, identify bottle to see weight above all, the bottle of same specification is heavier had better. Secondly, look at the bottom of the bottle to determine whether it is automatic mold (automatic mold than manual mold bottle is relatively better), the bottom of the automatic mold bottle has a sunken hole, the appearance of the hole is not the same as different manufacturers, there are round, square.
Finally, look at the uniformity of the bottle, turn the bottle towards the light source, a good bottle can obviously see that the light is not scattered, the scattered light indicates that the bottle wall is not uniform. Refined oil bottles can be identified in the same way.
Essential oil Identification:
In English-speaking countries, the essential oil bottle will mark its English name, Latin, purity, shelf life, batch number, instructions for use, precautions, etc.
Pure single-sided Essential oils will be labeled "100% Pure Essential Oil" and will be served in dark glass bottles (mainly dark blue, green and coffee).
If the product is labeled as "Aromatherapy Oil", most of it is blended Oil or synthetic Oil;
If it is "Envi-Ronmental Oil" or "Fragrant Oil", it is an aroma, in which the content of essential Oil may be only 2% or 3%. Part of the content is synthetic fragrance, which is Fragrant in smell, but has no therapeutic effect and cannot be used in aromatherapy.
