5 Reasons Why QuickLabel is the Best Solution for Printing Essential Oil Labels

Posted on by Kelsey Sullivan

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils.

A trusted partner in the essential oils industry, doTERRA defines essential oils as naturally occurring, aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.

For hundreds of years, essential oils have been used for medicinal, beauty and cleaning treatments. So how can you make your oils stand out from the rest?

1. We Make Label Creation Simple

We know that makers of essential oil products don’t just need a lot of labels – they need a lot of different labels.

Instead of dealing with the hassle of an outside printing vendor, with the risk of costly re-prints, overstock, delayed shipments or wasted expenses, we give you the ability to control everything in-house.

Our in-house commercial label printers print labels in any quantity. They are perfect for short-runs of seasonal products and ideal for printing custom labels for new scents, sizes, and formulations. That means growing your line of essential oils doesn’t have to be difficult. With a QuickLabel printer, you can start printing off your new scents as soon as they are designed.

What’s more, our printers are designed to be user-friendly and specifically designed for narrow labels.

That means you can focus on creating beautiful aromas, and we can take care of the rest.

2. We Meet All Labeling Rules & Regulations

As you know, being a producer of personal care products in the USA, your essential oil labels must comply with the FDA standards.

With a QuickLabel printer, you can print ingredients lists, allergen warnings, barcodes, organic and natural certifications on demand; ultimately giving you the advantage of keeping up with the constant changes being made to label requirements as they go into effect.

We’ll help keep you one step ahead and easily producing FDA-compliant labels.

3. We Let Your Beauty Shine Through

We want your labels to be as beautiful as you’ve imagined.

At QuickLabel, we know the importance of personalization. Your brand has to be able to tell your company’s story to stand out from the crowd. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Our label printers allow for complete customization of your labels. And they don’t only look good on screen.

Our label printers have the ability to print in up to 1600 dpi at 12 inches per second. That’s fast, photo-quality imagery!

Especially helpful for narrow labels, our systems precisely print 3-point font to list every ingredient, percentage and note you need.

We’ll help you print stunning imagery, barcodes, pricing, expiration dates and ingredients all in one round.

4. We Make It Personal

We like to get to know our customers, too.

Stopping by CJ’s Unique Boutique in Colorado Springs, we were able to see how they use our label printer to create their personal care lotion and oil labels. See for yourself:

Are Natural Flavors No Big Deal?

The Truth About “Natural Flavors” Not Listed on the Label

Cocaine, poison ivy, spider venom.. Not exactly what you think of when you hear the word natural, is it? Okay, maybe those things can’t be labeled as natural flavors in food and beverage products, but you get my point. Sometimes we do want to avoid things that are natural. So, do we have a right to know what “natural flavors” are in our favorite foods?

According to the FDA, manufacturers can list “natural flavors” when products include ”essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.”

Should all MSG in snacks be labeled?

Many times I’m guilty of glancing at the nutrition label and seeing “natural flavors,” and not giving much thought to it. I know it could include ingredients I try to avoid, but how can I know if it’s not on the label?

 

One ingredient I especially try to avoid is MSG (Monosodium Glutamate). In fact, just this week I was wondering about MSG. I know that I shouldn’t have it, and it makes things taste good. Mostly what I found while doing research is all the reasons to avoid MSG, some people even develop allergies to it. It made me wonder if all ingredients that fall under the “natural flavors” category should be listed individually. This would allow consumers to make more educated choices when it comes to food. Personally, I’m allergic to avocados, which definitely could be a “natural flavor,” lucky for me that’s not a very common flavor, but I do see how “natural flavors” could be scary for someone with severe food allergies. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFood allergies aside, as I’ve researched this more I’m more convinced that the FDA should reconsider this use of natural on labels. According to a Washington Post article “Many consumers appear to believe that natural is a synonym for good or healthful, as opposed to anything made or processed by humans, which is inherently evil and harmful. But Nature hides many decidedly unfriendly chemicals in our foods. Consider, for example, that the chemical amygdalin, found in “natural” apricot and peach pits reacts with stomach acid to produce hydrogen cyanide, the lethal gas that has been used to execute convicted criminals.”

So, that seems like quite an extreme example, but I do think it leads to some interesting questions. I really am wondering why manufacturers are permitted to include a long list of ingredients under the title “natural flavors.” This is a question that I have not been able to find an answer to. Is there a benefit for consumers and/or manufacturers in this ability? 

 Maybe this will never be changed by the FDA, but that doesn’t mean manufacturers with nothing to hide can’t label ALL of their ingredients. We know many of our customers are proud of their high quality ingredients, and love the Kiaro! inkjet label printer for its ability to print ingredient labels with very small, yet crystal clear text that shares with their customers exactly what they are getting. 

 Are you a manufacturer that’s proud of your ingredients? It may be time for you to enjoy the benefits of the Kiaro! color label printer. Your customers will be so impressed with your beautiful packaging, and delicious products!
