I am not familiar with this product but I have nothing negative to say about it. It is very concentrated and appears to be of excellent quality. I will continue to order this product unless I find the quality is less than what I have purchased at this time.

Shopping online for Tea Tree oil, I exhaustively researched as many essential oil distributors as I was able to find. I checked that the Latin name for the product was indeed the proper variety that I required, too. Many sites offered a different genus type which I again researched to determine if it was up to snuff and not an inferior variety. On every oil I needed Green Health provided not only the correct Latin name for the variety I needed as well as the best offerings of sizes, but their price was consistently more reasonable than ALL of the other sources. The shipment came quickly and well packaged, too. When I sampled my oils once they arrived I was pleased to find they all were consistently of fine quality, and not diluted, reduced or thinned down. But don't just take my word. See for yourself. You'll inevitably reach the same conclusion. The oils were nicely packaged and bottled, albeit without the little plastic inserts that restrict the flow. But that's a five cent item and if you need it you can just pour the contents into a bottle that has that inexpensive flow restricting device. My recommendation is: Buy all your essential oils from this reputable company in order to purchase the real McCoy at the fairest price. I'm very pleased with every item and I'll continue to get all of my oils from Green Health. It would be foolish not to.
