How to grade an essential oil?

by Katrina Lumagui

Hello, I just wanna ask how do you grade essential oils? i read about an article here in the internet that essential oil can be graded as GRADE A, B, OR C. Can you send me even a tabular form of the standard for qualification of various essential oils please? I'm doing this for a friend. Thank you!

Essential Oil Grades
by: Cristl Arndt

Hi Katrina,

The terminology “Grade A, B and C” regarding essential oils was coined by
Gary Young as a way to market his essential oils. You do not need to know how
to “grade” essential oils because it is not an official term.

Grade only for their uses
by: Liani

Hi Katrina,

I have search also about these grading things and I found that they usually mention Grade A for essential oils , Grade B for food grade oil and Grade C is for fragrance cosmetic oil.

So there isn't any grading essential oils. The only different is their uses.

I hope that helps.
