This can be verified through the determination of the chemotype.

To achieve the best quality and optimal effectiveness, our products are made exclusively with chemotyped essential oils.

An essential oil often contains 50 to 100 different molecules and may in extreme cases contain up to 300 molecules. In addition, the biochemical composition of an essential oil is never strictly the same. It is impossible to reproduce in a laboratory this complexity provided by nature. This may explain the great effectiveness of essential oils against bacteria, fungi or viruses.
