The answer is that we purposely create each batch different from the previous batch to keep the pathogenic microbes guessing. This is how nature works and we closely follow nature's law. In the wild, you do not see consistency, you see variation. Even though we use the same recipe each time no batch is ever exactly the same - similar to wine making. We believe that harmful microbes will have a harder time adapting to a given product (and becoming resistant to it down the road) if they are given a different concentration of oils an herbs from one batch to another. Don't be alarmed to have an inconsistent tasting product from Ascended Health from time to time. Variation is only possible because we HAND PRODUCE all our products. Also, the friendly microbes play a big role in our products.
