This petition had 4,350 supporters

This Petition was started by Miles Jordens, Crystal Heck and Betty Christl, concerned Young Living members, to have their concerns addressed regarding the recent test results which have been performed by 3 different, independent labs on 5 different bottles of cinnamon bark and 1 bottle of Thieves. Every bottle has been found to be adulterated. All lot numbers and test results can be found at #YLcinnamonbarksummary.

We would like our concerns addressed. Since our concerns were dismissed as individuals, we are coming together as a group with our concerns and questions, and respectfully request that the following questions be answered.

We as distributors, customers and individuals, are requesting the following answers from Young Living Essential Oils regarding the cinnamon bark testing issues.

We as distributors, are requesting the following answers from Young Living Essential Oils, regarding the cinnamon bark testing of Young Living oil.

1.  Please provide a response to the C-14 testing done showing 56% synthetics by the University of Georgia on Lot#15B10032   

2.  Why have you not provided the mass spectrometry output and tabulation for the testing done by Chemtech, in house testing, or Herve Casabianca?

3.  Why was the test preformed by Chemtech only a 20 minute test, when industry standard is 90-120 minutes for complete separation of co-elution?

4.  While coumarin can be expected in cinnamon bark, the LEVEL of coumarin suggests this is cassia oil.  Remarks?  

5.  In the Chemtech testing, the compound (1-Ethylbuta-1,3-dienyl) benzene is actually the Phenylpentadienal, it is not present in the NIST library.  It also should not be present in the oil.  Why is it in there?

6.  Chemtech is a lab not associated with the testing of essential oils.  Why was this lab used?

7.  Why have you not provided us with the detailed 'in house' test results, or the test results from Herve Casabianca?

8.  Although plinol has been found to naturally occur in grapes, the analysts who issued the 'failed' report have stated that plinol is not a compound that occurs in cinnamon bark oil.  Why is this found in our oil?


*** 9.  Can you explain why your own 3rd party testing lab, Chemtech-Ford Laboratories, found 1,2,4,5 - tetraethyl-benzene (Durene) which is a petroleum by-product of gasoline production was found in the oil tested by that company?
