I have only recently began experimenting with essential oils. I have used them in homemade cleaning solutions and topically. I only own a few oils to date, and have been slowly buying them as my budget allows. BUT, I have yet to settle on a specific brand to call my own, so to speak.
I have spent some time researching and reading about essential oils. I know that purity and quality matter, but for me, price matters too! Some EO are simply too expensive, while others are so cheap they make me wonder if the quality is there!
I have a list of several companies that I have been reading about and a few of them I have tried. doTERRA, Aura Cacia, Swansons, Beeyoutiful, Young Living, and Mountain Rose Herbs are some I can name off the top of my head.
I’m really just looking for honest quality/purity claims and a company that will not only stand behind their product, but be helpful in my essential oil journey! I would love to know I am choosing the best product for the price that my family can afford.
In addition, I would love to find a book all about using essential oils, including if they can be ingested, how/when they can or should be used for home remedies, recipes for homemade cleaning and personal health care, and an all-around “all about EO” book. I don’t need it to be brand specific.
So in my search for the right essential oil brand, I am looking for the following:
- therapeutic grade and made for human ingestion (such as peppermint or lemon oils)
- a company that is honest and helpful
- a EO guide book, available from the company or comes highly recommended by them, including tips on how to use in my home
- and a price my family can actually afford!
If you know of a brand that includes all of these qualities, then please feel free to share! I hope to try some of the brands mentioned (some of which I have tried already) and share my findings with you as well!
