Where to Buy Essential Oils

Three Terrific Aromatherapy Suppliers

This can be a tricky question - maybe trickier than you realize. There's a lot of choice out there when it comes to buying essential oils. And a HUGE variation in the levels of quality you can buy. Here's why:

The field of essential oils is unregulated, meaning there are no set standards for essential oils. Essential oils range in price and quality, and many of them are not 100% pure - they often use fragrant synthetic chemical substitutes to dilute or replace more expensive essential oil extracts.

Does quality REALLY matter all that much?

Well, here's some information to help you decide...

If the plant is coated with pesticides or has absorbed contaminants through the soil and water, then that contaminant is super-concentrated in your essential oil.

And that pesticide enters your cells at a microscopic level along with the essential oil.

We're bombarded daily by environmental toxins which systematically stress our body, so why would we choose to voluntarily add to our toxic load?

So in simple terms: when you buy essential oils, you get what you pay for. I absolutely recommend buying the highest quality essential oils you can afford.

doTerra... top of the line essential oils

I switched to doTerra' oils a while ago when I tested them against the other brands in my stockpile. I found I got better results, and I never got headaches or skin irritation, which sometimes happened with other brands.

I was pretty resistant to trying them because their prices are higher than a lot of other brands, but when I saw and felt the difference on my skin, I was won over.

I find that because they're so effective, I can get away with using fewer drops per recipe, which helps even out the cost. So if you want high quality, ultra-effective oils, these guys are for you.

You can buy doTerra's oils at retail prices by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get a store-wide 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on the wholesale deal - it's well worth it.

Mountain Rose Herbs... an excellent place to buy essential oils

Mountain Rose is one of the most popular essential oil suppliers in North America - for good reason.

Most of their oils are organic, and their company is committed to earth-friendly practices that make them an aromatherapy supplier to respect. Plus, their prices are excellent!

Their selection is also (almost) everything I could ask for, including every other aromatherapy recipe ingredient needed - I just wish they'd supply candle making stuff so we could have a one-stop shop. Would that not be fabulous?

I love the positive, friendly attitude of their staff, and I like that they're active in their local community with educational activities and such. Check out Mountain Rose Herbs!

Amazon ... SO MUCH variety!

A solid choice for buying essential oils is Amazon because they're a reputable, safe, worldwide online supplier.

You need to do a little more research regarding the quality of the brands you buy, but their prices are competitive, there's a million choices and they never run out of stock. Plus I love the Super Saver free shipping!

When I can't find what I need from my regular suppliers, I head over to Amazon. I can almost always find it there, plus I use them a lot for aromatherapy books because their selection is unbeatable. Check out the selection at Amazon.com!

Here's how I think of it...

For budget, choose Mountain Rose.

For quality, choose doTerra.

For variety, choose Amazon.
