All Health Fusion oils offered by HEALTHandMED are made from 1st distillations (unless a cold pressed method will yield higher quality oil). All single oils and blends are 100% undiluted (neat). They have not been manufactured through solvent extraction or chemical intervention because when solvents like hexane or other petroleum byproducts are used, they leave a residue, which can make the oil more like 95% pure instead of 100% pure. All Health Fusion oils are single species, and these oils are not cut extended or adulterated.
