THE LATEST LAVENDER OIL AT WALMART SELLING FOR $3.97 - CHEAP, SYNTHETIC, GARBAGE!
Here we go again. Walmart selling essential oils is kinda like McDonald's offering filet mignon. Why would anyone buy it? But they are, and by the millions. Which is why I have to expose this. Too many people using these oils internally which is why we all have to work together to expose this stuff and share it with as many people as possible.
It seems people will believe anything when their desire to save money is so strong that it clouds their judgement. I recently took a look at this "lavender" on the GC/MS and its quite clear that its adulterated with large amounts of synthetic linalool and synthetic linalyl acetate.
This oil being sold to Walmart from yet another Utah company called Rimports, Inc. riding the current popular wave of essential oil interest and offering the promise of 100% pure essential oils at dirt cheap prices. It's important to note that these bad oils in Walmart are no longer coming from Gurunanda who I applaud for going to great lengths to improve their quality after I did my first exposé on companies selling oils through Walmart.
But we all know that there are just prices that are too cheap to be possible and this oil, as you can see from the analysis report, appears to be a lavandin oil compound that has been boosted with significant amounts of synthetic linalool and linalyl acetate. It's very easy to prove this by the presence of the trace marker components dihydrolinalool and dihydrolinalyl acetate which do not occur in nature. When these components are present it tells us that a large amount of the linalool and linalyl acetate were added from a synthetic source. Further support could be provide by doing carbon 14 isotope testing to confirm the overall % of the oil that is derived from petrol chemicals.
These scamming companies will never stop doing this until enough people get educated in order to understand that you cannot get real lavender oil this cheap. It seems as if more and more of these companies are getting into the game each day. Please share this post with as many people as you can so people don't support these fake oils. These companies damage the industry as a whole because they are not true essential oils and when they don't work as they should people get a bad impression of essential oils and aromatherapy. Please help us all by spreading the word!
