Ready for a quick pop quiz? Pencils down … it only has one (important) question—what is the best essential oil company, and why? You might have thought you’d left tests behind when you finished high school chemistry. But don’t sweat this one—this time you are handing out the grades, and we’re in the hot seat.
In all honesty, we’ve got this one in the bag. At N8 Essentials we have a deep and enduring passion for quality. We rigorously test every product for purity and potency so that you can have complete trust in the natural products we offer. And when we say every product, we mean exactly that—from our USDA Certified Organic essential oils sourced from organic botanicals to our triple-tested CBD (hemp oil) products. You can even scan the QR code on our CBD packaging to see the results for the very product you have in your hands. Visit hemptestingcenter.com and enter the lot number from the package for all the detailed results of that product.
As a consumer, how do I identify good quality essential oils?
In a world full of counterfeits, forgeries and imposters, it’s all too easy for a consumer to feel lost in the hype. So we don’t try to persuade you about the quality of our natural products with questionable messaging or scare tactics. We just show you the science. We use only authentic essential oils with zero added filler or chemical fragrances—don’t fall for lower-quality alternatives containing perfumes and synthetic oils. We start with our own rigorous in-house testing with our Ph.D. chemists, and then add third-party testers to triple-test our products and post the reports for you to enjoy. Each oil is rigorously GC-MS tested for quality by independent research. This includes screenings for purity (to confirm that our products are exactly what they say they are), potency (to ensure that the strength of the oil is what we and our customers expect), and quality (because we know what you expect). For those looking to support their health naturally, N8 Essentials offers the most trusted products available.
Why the Perfectionism?
It’s simple, we want to be the most trusted natural health brand, known for setting the standard in the natural health industry. What brand of essential oils do you trust most? If it isn’t N8 Essentials, we would enjoy earning your trust. You may have sensed that it’s a bit of the wild west out there in the essential oil industry. Standards, rules, and regulations are still in flux for many of the natural products that you’ve come to depend on and love, and some people are happy to take advantage of that fact. Think of us as a breath of honesty. We impose strict quality standards on ourselves … not because it’s required of us, but because it’s the right thing to do.
Sometimes it’s your turn on center stage, spotlight firmly shining on your smiling face. Other times it feels right to take a more subtle approach – hanging out in the orchestra pit, for instance, or in the concession stand. Ultrasonic diffusers are a “center stage” method of dispersing essential oils. These beautiful and showy electronic products usually are designed with attention-getting glam and a geyser of mist to draw the eye. But there are also more subtle … but no less beneficial … ways of getting essential oils into the air around your family at home and at work.
The word “diffuse” simply means to spread a concentrated substance over a larger area. With essential oils, there are a few great ways to do this:
Cotton balls and cotton cloth are a great way to slowly diffuse essential oils without using a diffuser. Put a few drops of your favorite single or blend essential oil onto a plain cotton ball. Place the infused ball into a fan vent in your car, near an air conditioning vent at home, in the bathroom with the fan going or near your face as you sleep. Any air in motion will flow through, subtly diffusing the scent. How long it lasts will depend on how many drops you use and how quickly the air moves through the fibers.
Unfinished wood is another great medium to disperse essential oils in a room without requiring an electrical outlet. Some people use teakwood or reed diffusing sticks dipped in a container of full-strength essential oil to fill their room for aromatherapy benefits. Another method relies a natural medium … pinecones. To try this, place clean pine cones in a resealable plastic bag and sprinkle with drops of the essential oil single or blend of your choice. N8 Essential’s certified organic Energize Blend and Tranquil Blend are great candidates for this craft. Or try certified organic eucalyptus and cinnamon bark for a seasonal ambiance. Seal the bag and gently shake to disperse. Leave the cones in a bag, sealed for up to a week, to allow the fragrance to penetrate the wood. Use as a beautiful and deliciously scented home accent or share them as a personalized gift. Remember to store them in a sealed bag when not in use to extend the scent.
Terracotta pendants worn as a necklace are an affordable alternative to a diffuser. Essential oils are applied to the pendant and become absorbed into the clay. The scent slowly diffuses into the air as you breathe and it is a portable and personalized alternative to topical use.
