Hello and Welcome to AromEssential!
We first learned about the various benefits of essential oils from our aunt, who swore by her various essential oil remedies. Every time she told one of us to take some oregano oil when we were sick, or to use lavender oil before bed, we would laugh. But it wasn’t until we saw significant improvement in Theresa’s eczema using lavender essential oil, and the improvement of Delilah’s anxiety through using a diffuser that we realized the immense potential of essential oils.
Once we started the journey on our own, we armed ourselves with all the books we could find, and spent hours and hours Googling all about essential oils. We were both excited and overwhelmed at the sheer amount of oils, brands and diffusers out there. What company produces the best quality oils? 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.
Theresa and Delilah,
Frequently Asked Questions
Out with it, what brand do you recommend?
Unfortunately, we don't want to just directly recommend a specific brand. We aren't directly affiliated with any brands and wouldn't want it to seem that way, either. We 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, we are just bloggers! 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.
How can I get involved?
If you want to contribute to the site in some way - content, reviews or blog posts - we would love to hear from you! Drop us a line or check out our contact page to get in touch.
Are you certified Aromatherapists?
While neither of us our certified in Aromatherapy or a related field, we have done extensive research on all things essential oils. Again, we are simply bloggers that have spent hours and hours reading and studying essential oils and their therapeutic benefits. We encourage our readers to do their own research as well, since we can only provide you with our beliefs and conclusions - the rest is up to you!
