1. Are Lotus touch essential oils 100% certified organic?
2. What testing do the oils undergo? Is every batch tested before bottled and sold?
What specific organizations are they tested under? (AFNOR, EC, ISO)
Our oils are tested olfactorily and visually first and then sent off for Gas Chromatography testing. We have a specialist consultant essential oil chemist responsible for interpreting the results (the most difficult part of the process). All our oils are GC tested by the producers, so we are effectively doing a double check. We are very consistent with the producers that we use and have worked with them for a long time. We like to GC test every batch but many of our suppliers have only one stock for the year and we draw from it, so we are judicious in adding the extra cost in repeating the analysis of the same oil. Our specifications surpass all those of AFNOR, EU and ISO.
3. Are any of the Lotus touch essential oils diluted with chemical and/or synthetic additives?
No, none of the Lotus Touch oils are diluted with chemicals or additives. However, some of the oils, like Neroli, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Rose, etc. are diluted with 100% pure jojoba carrier oil to make them more affordable and easier to use.
