Hello and Welcome to AromEssential!
When I first learned about essential oils, I was skeptical. They'd been around me growing up, but never thought much of it. Other than putting tea tree oil on a zit to "dry it out" I really hadn't had much more experience with essential oils growing up. Two things led to the birth of AromEssential. As my wife began to use essential oils more frequently, I became interested in where the oils actually came from - what brands were using actual plants, what brands were just imported and synthetic bullshit. Then, my experience in the cannabis industry and learning more about the endocannabinoid system and the entourage effect, opened my eyes to the power (and risks) of essential oils. It became important that we purchased high quality, pure essential oils, and with all the misinformation out there, this blog came to life.
What does it mean if an oil is high quality or not? Which ones are organic? What oils do use in what situation? Which ones are actually worth the money? We spent hours doing the research to try and answer these questions because at the time there was not just one source where we could find it all in one place. And that’s exactly why we started AromEssential.
And while after all of our time spent digging, there are certain brands and types of oils that we do prefer to use, we don’t necessarily want to just tell you what oils you should buy. Sure, we can recommend some for various reasons, but ultimately we want to use the hours of research we’ve put in to help educate you, empowering YOU to make the right choice.
Frequently Asked Questions
Out with it, what brand do you recommend?
Unfortunately, I don't want to just directly recommend a specific brand. I simply want to provide you with all the information you need in order to make an informed decision. There are some brands that have higher quality oils, some that are organic, some that are more expensive. But, these factors all hold different weight with different people. The best brand for one person may not be the best for another person. Use our comprehensive guide to make your empowered decision!
Why don't you sell any of them yourselves?
Selling essential oils was never the point of AromEssential, it was to point out the quality brands and make other interested people find quality products and avoid harmful mistakes. We had such a hard time finding the right information for ourselves - what are the best brands, oils, and diffusers - and wanted to help others find the information more easily. Some of our blog posts may have links to Amazon.com, and any purchase made after following one of those links will be completed through Amazon and their associates.

Are you a certified Aromatherapist?
I am not certified in Aromatherapy or a related field, we have done extensive research on all things essential oils. Again, I'm simply a guy on the internet that has spent way too many hours and hours reading and studying essential oils, and their therapeutic benefits. I encourage you to do your own research as well, since we can only provide you with our beliefs and conclusions - the rest is up to you!
