What is the difference between organic and non-organic essential oils other than the price? It has become very popular in aromatherapy to use only organic oils which may not necessarily mean better. During the steam distillation process, offensive or harmful pesticides are left behind since the pesticide residue is too big to pass through the distillation process. The only way pesticides could get through is if plants were newly sprayed at harvest time and the likelihood of this happening is extremely slim. As long as a plant is steam distilled, it may not be the best idea nor certainly not cost effective to go organic. The exception to the rule is with citrus essential oils since they are not steam distilled, but expressed.
