Are Essential Oils Glutenfree?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if essential oils contain gluten? I'm not clear on how they are made, but it sounds as though they are distilled.

true essential oils are either distilled (using steam in a vat) or expressed (squeezed, cold-pressed). cheaper, inferior oils ("fragrance oils", not 100% pure essential oils) might involve solvents, though i don't know if they'd be gluten-based. i'm not an expert, i just got this from an aromatherapy book. so i would think pure essential oils would be gluten-free.

That makes sense. I certainly don't small any alcohol in my essentials oils. Thanks!
