I. What’s New?
Well, for starters… the Essential Oil Exchange! We are happy to report that July was a very successful first full month. We got a lot done, and we have a lot more to do… but we are very grateful to everyone who has participated in all of the many ways that have made the EOX launch a great success thus far.
Since this is the premier newsletter issue we’ve opted for keeping newsletters very simple… plain text for the email, an online version, and one or two issues per month… nobody likes too many emails!
II. Essential Oils & Aromatherapy: What is Therapeutic Grade?
This article, while longer than most people may want to read, explains many things about the essential oil market, how things work, and why we take the positions we do about certain things when it comes to the EOX and the choices we make. We’ve been around this block a long time, and while not everyone agrees with our position, we think it’s good to be clear about it so that everyone can have transparency in their personal choices about essential oils… as well as knowing why they are making them.
If you do take the time to read this entire article, please let us know and leave a comment at the end to share your thoughts. We’d love to know what you think too.
III. Current Specials!
We want to express our gratitude and give something back to every one of our newsletter subscribers… so here is an online coupon code for 15% off all products (excluding the membership) that is good through August 15, 2012 and expires at midnight.
