Plant Therapy Organic Certification

usda

On May 10th, 2015 Plant Therapy became a certified organic facility through ECOCERT ICO, an inspection, and certification organization fully accredited through The National Organic Program (NOP). As our line of certified organic products continues to grow, we wanted to take a moment and discuss what this really means to you, our customer.

As a company, we have always been passionate about helping to conserve our precious natural resources and reducing environmental pollution. The next time you order a bottle of your favorite essential oil that holds the USDA certified organic seal, you can feel confident in knowing that your purchase is contributing to this goal.

At Plant Therapy, we have always believed in exceptional quality and the purest of ingredients. It has always been of the utmost importance for us to know everything about the farmers, distillers, suppliers, and plants. By having this additional certification, we can also proudly say that we are adhering to the strictest of standards to bring you quality organic ingredients.

Some of these standards include:

No GMOs: Genetically Modified Organisms are prohibited in organic products. This means that an organic farmer can’t plant GMO seeds and an organic producer can’t use any ingredients containing GMOs.

Clean soil: The land where the products are grown must not have had any prohibited substances applied to it for at least 3 years before the harvest of an organic crop. Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering may not be used.

No harmful pesticides: Crop pests, weeds, and diseases are controlled primarily through physical, mechanical and biological efforts. If for some reason these methods are not working, a biological, botanical or synthetic substance that is approved on the National List may be used.

All organic, all the way: Operations must use only organic seeds and other planting material.
When you purchase a certified organic product, you are also helping to conserve biodiversity, ensuring that our natural landscapes and their ecosystems are maintained and intact for generations to come.

At Plant Therapy, we are committed to supporting these conservation efforts and to be able to offer to our customers’ certified organic options.

  1. Thanks for the info. I am new to EO- Got into them just for smells at first- now I want to lear more about what they can dp for us health wise.

  2. I really support Organic products and the practices that they use to cultivate and ensure continued renewable resources. I was happy to find out that Plant Therapy is offering more and more organic products. I support any company that works to conserve and preserve the world we live in.

  3. I have recently ordered a handful or your certified organic essential oils and also carrier oils. Love them so far. I was wondering if eventually all your products will be Non-GMO.. Certified Organic?? Would love to keep ordering from your company. I’ve used Young Living and NOW essential oils, but I now realize when a company labels Therapeutic Grade or Aromatherapy Grade… It means nothing at all as far as quality. So I’m excited about your oils. Thank you for creating real true products.

    1. All of Plant Therapy’s essential oils are 100% pure and natural, free from any additives or preservatives. Each and every batch of oil that we purchase goes through two separate rounds of quality testing to ensure this and we work diligently with our suppliers to provide oils that come from organically grown plants. This quality testing includes GCMS testing and we make all of our reports available to our customers so you can see for yourself what the oils consist of. With this being said, if you prefer a guarantee that the oil was grown organically and follows the organic standards, we recommend that you purchase our certified organic oils. Since many small farmers cannot afford to certify their organically grown plants, the only way to guarantee that the oil is organic is to purchase a certified organic oil.

  4. So glad to read this! Congratulations to everyone at Plant Therapy! Yours is the only brand of essential oils I use, and you are my go to shop for carrier oils, blends, bottles and other accessories. I feel like I’m getting the best quality from PT, and I’ve always loved your fantastic customer service, including answers to my many questions. I love that you offer many ‘recipes’ for using essential oils – I’ve made quite a few, not only for our health and well-being, but also for kids, grandkids, friends and family. They make fantastic gifts and have really been beneficial to repel flies, mosquitoes and other ‘critters’ that would normally make the great outdoors miserable! Here’s wishing you continued success!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Becky! I am so glad to hear that you have had such great experiences with our Customer Service Team and have enjoyed making some of our DIY recipes!
