If you are considering using essential oils with your horse, it is most likely because you are looking for something natural and safe. Pure, therapeutic grade oils allow you to receive the full benefits that nature has to offer. Plus, you can be confident knowing that they are safe to use to use for your horses. When it comes to quality, you usually get what you pay for—essential oils are no different.
Right now, essential oils seem to be a trend and are all over! I have seen essential oils at the grocery store, online, and even at the gas station! With so many options, how would one know which essential oils are the best choice for their horse?
Some people argue that there is no such thing as clinical grade, certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG), or food grade essential oils. This is because there really is no governing body regulating essential oils. Unfortunately, no regulation means companies can say the oil is pure or therapeutic grade even if the oils are adulterated with synthetic ingredients.
Since there is no organization that oversees the quality of essential oils, therapeutic grade may seem like a marketing term. Any company can say their oils are therapeutic grade. Some companies use other therapeutic grade terms, or other grading or certifying terms, for internal quality standards. However, these terms are often created and used by each individual company and not standard across the industry.
If you want the best essential oils for yourself and your horses, find out if the company you plan to buy from takes the following precautions to ensure the quality of their oils:
Why I Choose doTERRA Essential Oils for My Horses
When I use doTERRA essential oils, I know I am using pure, therapeutic grade oils. DoTERRA assures there are no contaminants, fillers, or adulterations in their oils. The essential oil industry may not have standards to ensure purity, but doTERRA does and that’s why they created their own higher standards.
Every batch of doTERRA essential oils go through a rigorous testing process—well beyond what would be considered the standard. After the initial process, each oil is sent to an independent third party for further testing and validation. IF the oil passes the tests, it’s labeled as CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. When I see the CPTG® label, I know I am using the purest essential oils on the market. Every single bottle of doTERRA oil comes with a quality ID. If I question the quality, I can use the ID number on the bottom of the bottle to view the third-party test results for that batch of oil.
I don't compromise ingredients when it comes to choosing natural approaches to my horse's health. When I choose doTERRA essential oils for myself and my horses, I consider it a no-brainer. Do you want to experience the purity of doTERRA oils for horse?
