Hey, you're welcome Xiao, I do see this question come up very frequently.
Just because something says it is Lavender (for instance) doesn't mean it really is.
I knew of a vendor who had his little sign up over the oils saying "essential" I stood there and made a huge stink about the fact they were all fragrance oils, and he insisted they were essential, I think enough people in the shop heard me challenge him and the next time I visited he had changed the sign. Thank god, how many people took those home thinking they had something that could be potentially taken within, what if they did? I don't even know what would happen.

I have run into a few OK smelling fragrance oils but that's what I use them for ...perfuming the body. I use essential oil more frequently though, it just has a different vibration. The energy in essential oils is what you are looking for when using in a spell, fragrance oils contain little if any energy of the plant it claim to be mimicking.

I am unfamiliar with Young living brand, but DoTERRA has a pretty good oil, just overpriced as heck. I also am disenchanted with their multi level marketing ploys.

Investigate some well known aromatherapy books or institutes and see what brands they recommend or do not. ..or go to a health food store and smell some...the ones I mentioned in the original post are good but I am really not here to endorse, or debunk any brand.
