What is an essential oil?

Essential oils are simply a concentrated form of the oils found

naturally in the flowers, leaves, bark, stem, seeds, and other parts

of plants. When the oils are extracted, they maintain the

characteristic fragrance, or essence, of that plant and have been

used for thousands of years by cultures all over the world for their

pleasant and sometimes powerful fragrances and properties.



What testing does Melaleuca conduct to ensure that its PURE

Essential Oils are the best quality?

Pure Essential Oils are the highest quality oils available. Each one is 100% pure oil extracted directly from the botanical plant source and is guaranteed to contain NO synthetic or impurities. They meet stringent quality specifications and are put through a battery of quality tests:

~ GCMS testing (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry)

~ Chirality testing

~ Heavy metal/pesticide/herbicide testing

~ Organoleptic testing

~ Optical rotation and refractive index testing

~ Specific gravity testing

~ Microbial testing                                                                                

How are PURE Essential Oils Extracted?

The method of extraction varies from oil to oil, depending on the part of the plant that was used to obtain the oil. The majority of PURE Essential Oils are steam distilled, citrus oils are cold pressed, and jasmine absolute is obtained through a delicate extr process. You can see the specific method of extraction for a particular oil by visiting the oil’s product detail page at

Are PURE Essential Oils organic?

Melaleuca partners with farmers who use sustainable and ethical farming practices to grow the plants needed to obtain PURE Essential Oils. Each oil is guaranteed to be free of pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals. Organic certifications are granted by government agencies. Many of Melaleuca’s PURE Essential Oils are extracted from plants grown in countries where organic certifications are not available.
