I just got an order from Mountain Rose Herbs (I wanted to make my own lotions) and I got a couple essential oils to compare to my doTERRA oils. So far I am far from impressed with the Mountain Rose Herbs quality. The oil smells much less strong and has an artificial chemical smell to it that I can't seem to identify. Almost like rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. Once the oil is on the skin it does smell much much stronger than it does in the bottle (so does the artificial smell). I think that has something to do with that other additive that they used to dilute the oil with. Right on the bottle it says "Therapeutic Grade according to international standards and suitable for all aromatherapy applications." Unfortunately there is no such thing as an international standard for essential oil and by law they are only required to use 10% pure oil in order to call it 100% pure... just like juice at the grocery store. Which means they are 90% unregulated filler oil and why they aren't recommended for internal use. Needless to say I won't be using my Mountain Rose Herbs oils for anything but aromatherapy as I have no idea what they used for that other 90% and it just plain smells wrong compared to doTERRA's oil that I fully believe is 100% pure oil and is safe to use internally. If I'd known that they were just for aromatherapy before I bought I wouldn't have even bothered, but they said a lot of stuff on their site that was misleading... Buyer beware. I will stick to doTERRA oils from now on.
