The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) states that only a 'pharmaceutical' drug can 'cure' a disease or ailment thus sent letters to the top 2 companies selling essential oils in the US stating they are not allow to claim they cure any health ailment. Both these companies are very clear with their advertising verbiage what has happened is a grassroots and social media is exploding with claims of 'regular' people healing themselves with essential oils and of course want to share their story in hopes it will help someone else.
What is meant by an infused essential oil? Putting crystals and reiki in oil so when you use the oil the correlating chakras or body part can utilize the oil more specifically. For example, if you are experiencing knee pain, having an essential oil infused with healing properties of pain relief follows the exact concept of using Bengay, however, essential oils are natural and Soul Sister Creations essential oils are organic. Just FYI not all essential oils are organic so purchase wisely!

How does the oil become infused?
Infusing oil, fusing the property of herb into oil, like cooking. If you start with basic olive oil by adding herbs and spices you are infusing the oil.

Cost and quality - labels Latin name; prices should be comparable super cheap verse hi and therapeutic grade. If prices of an specific oil vary from say, $100, $30 and $10 which one do you purchase. Stick to the average; provided the quality is the same, if you want pure organic oil it might be the $100 one verses a $30 pure non-organic or the $10 adulterated oil. If all elements are the same go with the average price amongst sellers.
What is the difference of quality cheaper not pure essential blended in carrier oil and adulterated not sure been unknown origins like cheap whisky
Carrier oils - use topically, on label, some are too strong or they can burn or allergic reactions
Knowledge is power for everything
How do they order - email, contact page
They can make custom blends, if you have a holiday party or for holiday gift giving they can assist you in making a 'signature' oil for you instead of the overdone signature cocktail for parties and weddings.
Why would someone choose essential oils if they have never used them?
Today natural healing is becoming so important in a world of toxins, disease and pollution, using organic material verse drugs and prescriptions is becoming the new norm, back to basics philosophy.

** Side note from Dr. G - Rosemary is a psychic medium. I met Rosemary when I set up a reading for my Mom to get a little more closure on losing Dad. I wasn't sure what to expect all I know is she came highly recommended and for whatever reason I thought it would help my Mom. As it would turn out Rosemary helped both my Mom and I in variety of ways I will save for another show. I without any hesitation and in highest regards recommend and trust Rosemary.
Thank you for listening
