Plant Therapy

Plant Therapy

 Plant Therapy

This company has a very extensive catalog of essential oils and essential oil blends that include plenty of options specifically marketed as kid-safe—a great peace of mind for parents who want to try aromatherapy safely around their families. They also carry CBD products, dog and pony products, body care products like lotions, as well as diffusers and other accessories for your home. It’s a great one-stop shop that doesn’t require a membership or knowing a direct seller to purchase.

The company states that all of their oils are 100 percent pure and of the highest grade, free from any additives, adulterants, or dilutions. If there’s a downside, it’s that although many of their essential oils come from organically grown plants, only a handful are actually certified as organic. Still, the price can’t be beat for the level of purity and quality—you’ll get some of the highest grade oils at the best price with this company.

Vitruvi

Vitruvi

 West Elm

Though Vitruvi has highly designed and sophisticated black-and-white packaging that looks great out on the counter (no need to stash these bottles!), it's not all about the packaging here—their commitment to oil quality rivals that of other brands. The brand’s essential oils are 100 percent pure, therapeutic grade, and do not contain any fillers, diluting oils, synthetic fragrances, or unnatural components. Purists may be disappointed that not all of their oils are certified organic, but some are (eight out of 15 in the line), plus all oils are non-GMO, pesticide-free, and are never tested on animals. Plus, all of this information is transparent and can easily be found on the company’s website.

A major bonus of Vitruvi oils is that they are more accessible than some well-known brands, as oils are widely available in a number of ways. Their website has an easy and seamless shopping experience, plus they sell at popular retailers like Nordstrom and Anthropologie. The biggest downside is that the product line is not nearly as vast as others, so choices are limited. They do, however, also have a line of very beautiful diffusers in a range of colors to suit various design aesthetics.

Revive

Revive

Revive 

This brand of essential oils is one of the newer ones on the market today, but it’s quickly gaining fans. Like other brands on the list, this company’s essential oils are high quality and expertly sourced. But something that makes them different is the way that they are sourced—instead of using farming techniques, this company harvests wild plants for their essential oil production. Because of this, not all products are USDA-certified or labeled as organic. Prices are about average—not too expensive, but not cheap—and the products are only available through their website, so you can easily find their entire range. Overall, it’s a good choice for anyone looking to get started with essential oils, as you can get basic oils and blends at a more affordable price.

Eden’s Garden

Eden's Garden

Eden's Garden 

Eden’s Garden was founded in 2009, but it has quickly become a go-to resource for high-quality essential oils. Their popularity is mostly thanks to an extensive and high-quality line of affordable essential oils, but the company has recently expanded to include other offerings, including synergy blends of oils, kid-safe oils, diffusers, natural deodorants, bath products, candles, and other home goods. Though their oils are sourced from around the world, all are rigorously batch-tested to ensure quality standards. They are also entirely pure (that means they are free from synthetics) and in most cases, the oils have been harvested sustainably from soil to bottle.

Rocky Mountain Oils

Rocky Mountain Oils

 Rocky Mountain Oils

Because Rocky Mountain Oils is a direct-to-consumer company, they are able to offer very fair and affordable prices on essential oils. Even at a budget-friendly price, the products you'll get are of the utmost quality. The extensive product line includes both single oils as well as blends that have been tested by independent third-party labs to verify both quality and purity. The company also boasts an all-encompassing return policy, which entitles customers to return products—for any reason, even if opened—for up to 90 days.

Now Foods

Now Foods

 Now Foods

This company is so much more than a producer of essential oils. Now Foods has an entire line of natural health products that include over 1,400 natural dietary supplements, sports nutrition products, food, personal care products, and—yes—essential oils. The brand also boasts a full facility in-house laboratory to ensure all of their products, oils included, surpass industry standards.

While all of their oils are natural and 100 percent pure, like other brands, not all of them are certified organic. The biggest draw of Now Foods is how affordable and available the product is. Since the product is available through retailers like Amazon, this brand makes it very easy to access therapeutic grade oils at a fraction of the cost of other brands.
