How to buy essential oils

Feeling overwhelmed by the number of essential oils out there? You want the quality, nature-inspired oils you’ve heard so much about, but with so many options, it can feel impossible to know where to start. The good news is that we can help you out! We’ll help you dodge synthetic knock-offs and toxins for a more natural route you can incorporate into your healthy routines.

What should I look for when buying essential oils?

Step into savviness by paying close attention to labels. When shopping for high-quality essential oils, you want to avoid synthetic fillers. The easiest way to do this is to read the back. If it’s just a single essential oil, there should only by one ingredient on the back. In essential oil blends like Peace & Calming®, a couple of botanicals are used as ingredients, so make sure all the listed ingredients are supposed to be in there. In some cases, oils may be prediluted for sensitive skin, but you’ll recognize carrier oils like jojoba oil on those labels.

Still not sure about how to buy essential oils? Use these following indicators to decode your purchase:

  • Look for a Latin name. High-quality essential oils typically list the Latin name of the plant species they’re derived from, so you know exactly what you are getting.
  • Choose the right packaging. High-quality essential oils come in tightly sealed, dark-colored glass bottles that prevent damage from light, heat, and plastic packaging.
  • Find out how the essential oil was made. How essential oils are distilled matters, so be sure to investigate the process used!
  • Find a reasonable price. High-quality essential oils can be pricey—but for good reason! It takes huge amounts of botanicals to make one bottle of pure essential oil, so if the price of the oil seems too good to be true, it probably features fillers.
