What extraction methods are used for your essential oils?
The majority of our essential oils are extracted via steam distillation. Citrus oils such as Lemon, Lime and Orange are extracted using a cold press of the peel. Each one of our essential oils has its own extraction method listed in its product description.
What quality are your essential oils?
All essential oils we sell are of the highest quality available and have been stringently tested and certified as 100% pure, natural and true to botanical. Each essential oil is tested via gas chromatography, optical rotation, refractive index, specific gravity, colour & odour profile. This ensures that each oil is pure and free from adulteration.
Are your essential oils Therapeutic-Grade?
The term 'Therapeutic-Grade' is somewhat misleading as there is currently no government agency or independent organisation that provides a standardized grading system for essential oils. While there are some other essential oil companies that use the term 'Therapeutic-Grade', this is nothing more than a registered marketing phrase.
Can your essential oils be taken internally?
While all of our essential oils are 100% pure and many of our oils do meet food grade standards, we are unable to advise essential oils to be taken internally unless under the consultation of a health professional or aromatherapist. In Australia, you would need to have an Advanced Diploma in Aromatic Medicine to prescribe ingestion of essential oils. To not hold such a qualification, and to still advise on ingestion of essential oils, can put you at risk of litigation.
Do you test on animals?
None of our products are tested on animals. Buckley and Phillips is accredited by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and CCF (Choose Cruelty Free). This certification also ensures that Buckley & Phillips' suppliers of raw material do not test on animals. Please see their accreditation details Here.
Do you use polystyrene when packing orders?
No, our company only uses recycled paper, card or ‘Bio-Fill’ void. This polystyrene alternative is 100% biodegradable and environmentally friendly. It is made from corn starch and breaks down in water.
