Natural essential oil and Organic essential oil

ED Origin Technology Co.,Ltd | Updated: Nov 09, 2017


Natural and organic are two buzzwords used in product marketing that get thrown around a lot. Like most things that are overused, their true meaning somehow gets lost in the shuffle. Consider hackneyed words such as ‘cute’, which no one can really say what it means. (It’s just cute.) Dictionary definitions in the case of these two catchphrases don’t help to distinguish the two. Natural is defined as “existing in or caused by nature; not made or caused by humankind” and organic is described as “of or relating to or derived from living matter.”

Natural vs. Organic

Sometimes the dictionary doesn’t tell the whole story, and a bit of detective work reveals, as they say, the true blue of the sky. Organic is a strictly regulated term coined bthe US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the website of which clearly states: “Organic operations must demonstrate that they are protecting natural resources, conserving biodiversity, and using only approved substances.” Beauty and other products labeled ‘organic’ undergo a strict regulatory process to insure that they do not contain synthetic additives or pesticides.

Natural, on the other hand, is a horse of another color, so to speak. Many soap manufacturers use the word, ‘natural’ to signify that their products were made without synthetic dyes, oils or fragrances. It is an umbrella term, which has nothing to do with rainfall but everything to do with almost anything created by nature. The big difference is that unlike organic, there are no legal stipulations when using this term.

Remember that not all essential oils are created equal and that many may even be detrimental to your health. Make sure upon purchase that they are certified pure therapeutic grade. To clearly summarize the difference between the two, according to the USDA: “If you make a product and want to claim that it or its ingredients are organic, your final product needs to be certified. If you are not certified, you must not make any organic claim on the principal display panel or use the USDA organic seal anywhere on the package.”
