Ask Cary: Blend Application + GC-MS Testing

June 27th, 2014

We get all kinds of questions about essential oil therapy, and Cary makes sure to answer each and every one of them. Recently, we realized that those answers were only going to the person who asked the question. You know that at 21 Drops we believe that sharing is caring, so we decided to do a weekly roundup of some of the Q’s & A’s to help you be your best self!


This week: Blend Application + GC-MS Testing



Blend Application + GCMS Testing


Question: Where do I apply my blends?

Answer: It’s different for each blend, each one has specific instructions on its individual page and box. As a general rule you can apply them to pulse points (wrists, temples, back of the neck). Be sure to take a nice deep inhale to get those aromatic scent molecules flowing to the brain!


Question: Your packaging mentions GC-MS testing. What is that?

Answer: GC-MS stands for Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry. This test identifies the active components in each oil and the quantities of each component. It will also reveal if there are any adulterations. It basically guarantees that our oils are as natural as we say they are. Adulterated oils will not offer optimal therapeutic effects and may cause allergies, headaches and chemical sensitivities, so we won’t use them in our blends.
