Essential oil Producers & Suppliers.

Most aromatherapy outlets sell some genuine oils, but most do not have the financial resources to check everything that their wholesalers tell them. Therefore, some of their stocks will be genuine and some fake. In my opinion that position represents the vast majority of aromatherapy suppliers.
