Q.Are Natural Oils Cheap?
Natural oils are not exactly too cheap nor are they too expensive, as “cheap” can be subjective to many people. It will be prudent to get all available facts before buying them. It will prevent you from falling for marketing gimmicks aimed at selling natural oils at exorbitant prices.
One of the claims made by the sales representative is that the natural oil is “Therapeutic Grade’ or even “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade”. Such a claim is baseless as no government agency has issued certification of natural oil. Also, the natural oil is sometimes advertised as being “Medical Grade”; another misnomer, as all natural oils are 100% safe to use. Natural oils are precious by nature, but when mixed with carrier oils they become economical to use.
When you intend to purchase natural oils, like sandalwood oil, it is preferable to shop with a renowned manufacturer or supplier. For then you are assured of the natural oils being diluted to the correct range with the authenticated carrier oils.
The use of cheap natural oils may reduce the cost of natural oil, but in the long run may be harmful to your skin or hair. Thus, this will result in more medical costs which might negate the affordability of the product bought.
It is most advisable to buy premium quality natural oils because these oils help you to achieve most effective results and benefits. Whatever natural oil you may be shopping for, it would be preferable if you were to obtain a Certificate of Authenticity from the Seller. This will ensure that not only will you get 100% pure natural oil but that the price is also justified.
