Throughout the years, I've noticed a number of companies that use the terms therapeutic grade and sometimes aromatherapy grade. But until recently, I hadn't given these terms serious thought.
I've been a member of the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy(NAHA) for a number of years. Upon recently renewing my membership, I spotted that their membership application/renewal form prohibits membership to those companies that use these terms. I applaud NAHA for taking this stance, and it was this policy that lead me to take a fresh look at the terms therapeutic grade and aromatherapy grade and realize how meaningless and confusing these terms can be to consumers.
