Naming and Classification


Most of the essential oils have strong penetrating ability through your skin, strong electromagnetic interaction with your body cells and are sometimes toxic to your skin and organs. Because of above 3 reasons, AMRCC defines Aroma Medicine Products (AMPROs) carefully and with details of concentration. For external use, the AMPROs firstly add Total Essential Oil Concentration (TEOC) and Total Carrier Oil Concentration (TCOC) as a new definition:



1% TEOC and up: G1, G2, G3, … (G – Grade)

0.1% to 0.9%: P10, P20, …. P90 (P – Point, 0.83% means P83)

0.5%: P50或GH (H – Half)

0.25%: P25或GQ (Q – Quarter)

Therefore, if the product contains 1.5% essential oils in total, TEOC will be G1H or G1P50.

0.1% TEOC and below: GT (Trace) or TEOC not required.



1% TCOC and up: C1, C2, C3… (C – Carrier Oil)

1% TCOC and below: CT (Trace) or TCOC not required.

Alcohol Concentration - AXX

Aloe Extract Concentration - ALXX or AlXX



If for 24 hours which does not contain photosensitivity oils, the product can be called DN - Day and Night or DU - DAY USE.

5. Possible health benefits with related essential oils:

A.I. or AI stands for Anti Inflammatory where the TEOC of AI essential oils needs to be over 0.5%.

AF - Anti Fungal , TECO > 2%.

AB - Anti Bacterial, TECO > 0.5%.

AV - Anti Viral, TECO > 0.5%.

AT - Anti Tumor, TECO > 2%.



For diseases defending and healing, AMPROs can use “Relief” or “Anti”, or use names of body parts, organs, tissues …etc for naming and usage purposes. For example, “Foot Cream”, “Mouth Cleanser” and “Anti Fungal Vaginal Cream”.

If there is more than 15% of 1:1 aloe extract, you can add “healing”. When aloe concentration is above 30%, you can call it “super healing” with the sign ALXX. XX is the number of percentage.

TECO classification provides basic health benefit information as well as the safety warnings. This classification standard is now the standardized classification of  World Aroma Medicine Organization (WAMO), Aroma Medicine Organization of Canada (AMOC), Aroma Medicine Organization of USA (AMOUSA) and Taiwan Aroma Medicine Organization (TAMO)。

Here is and example:

G8H C20 AL30 A1


Eczema Relief Healing Cream


This product is for eczema relief (and possibly for other skin inflammation relief). It has 8.5% essential oils, 20% carrier oils, which is suitable for dry skin and dry weather. There is 30% of aloe concentration. It can be claimed as super healing cream. It is also for day & night use (DN – 24 hours), anti bacterial, anit fungal, anti viral and anti inflammatory.


For any product tht contains 5% or more of essential oils, AMRCCsuggests you use it under the assistance of a AMRCC or equivalent health professionals. This product has 8.5% essential oils, therefore, you should talk to health professionals before applying.
