The essential oil world is full of myths and false information, and it can be confusing trying to decipher all the contradictory information so I wanted to share one of my favorite sources for science-based, unbiased essential oil information, Essential Oil University.
Essential Oil University began as a testing organization founded by essential oil chemist Dr. Robert Pappas in 1998 as Applied Essential Oil Research. Dr. Pappas still continues to do analytical testing for the essential oil and fragrance industry today, specializing in GC/MS analysis and reporting the chemical breakdowns of literally hundreds of different essential oils, CO2s and absolutes. As a Ph.D. chemist, Dr. Pappas soon became recognized as a leading authority in the field and was trusted by a long list of clients especially in the essential oil, fragrance, and flavor industries.
