We were asked if Now Foods Essential oils are synthetic... here is their answer...
With the exception of one of our jasmine oil blends, which is clearly labeled as synthetic, all NOW Solutions essential oils are naturally derived.
Pure, natural jasmine oil is hard to source and very expensive even at wholesale, which translates to exorbitant retail pricing.
Synthetic jasmine is much less expensive and its aroma is equivalent to that of pure jasmine, which is why we offer this option to our customers.
We also carry a pure jasmine absolute blended with carrier oil as a natural alternative.
