I love it
I use this oil to clean my sinks and bathtub. I love the earthy smell. It takes care of bacteria without a bunch of chemicals. Sometimes I also diffuse it with cinnamon to clean the air. And finally, I put a couple drops in my dishwasher.
Lots of uses for this one

We use lots of essential oils on our 49 year old special needs son. We were recently told to use Thyme to break a tantrum. It works. We put it behind the ears, the temples and base of head. In a few minutes he calms down. We have used an assortment of oils, Tranquil, Attention Assist, am ordering Focus After we apply the oils we dampen his skin and apply Peppermint to drive the other oils in.

They are of the quality to ingest. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so. If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance.

Is this 100 percent therapeutic grade?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Good question! Many essential oil users have become acquainted with the term “therapeutic grade” to ensure that an essential oil is of the highest quality. “Therapeutic grade”, "100% Pure", "100% therapeutic", or any combination of these phrases are marketing terms used to describe that the essential oils are pure of contaminants, synthetics, and adulterants and can be used for therapeutic purposes.

At RMO, all of our oils are 100% pure, therapeutic essential oils and organically grown. We do not use fillers, synthetics, or fragrance enhancers of any kind. They are GMO-Free, GC/MS and Pesticide tested. These results are available for you to look at so you can see how pure the oils really are. We even back that up with our 90 day 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
