Standard Oil vs. Essential Oil
Certain industries, and very large users, require material which is standardised so that the balance of chemical constituents is maintained, as well as the odour profile, which can easily differ seasonally and due to differing weather conditions. An oil may therefore be rectified by adding certain natural and/or nature identical aromatic ingredients, to maintain standards required by food, pharmaceutical, dental and beverage industries. This class is, however, not necessarily inferior in quality or efficacy.
Essential oils are extracted directly from a plant source with no addition of other compounds. Essentially – plant to bottle.
Essential oils are highly concentrated plant essences. The ingestion of essential oils is not recommended without prior advice from your health care practitioner. Dilute in a carrier or base when necessary.

ESSENTIAL OILS & THE CHAKRAS
For the Throat Chakra (Vishudha), choose essential oils that balance the emotions and improve communication & self-expression. When your emotions are in balance you are more able to accept your limitations, thus promoting spiritual patience. Any of the camomile oils German, Roman or Cape will suit this purpose. Peppermint and/or eucalyptus are helpful for clearing sinuses and thereby clearing communication channels.
