20 comments on “Which Essential Oil Brand is Best – Find Your Favourite

I’ve been thinking about using essential oils and wondering which brand is a good one your pros and cons are really helpful. Which essential oil brand would you recommend to a newbie like me.


Hi Travis,
I would definitely recommend Organic Aromas to newbies. They have a ton of information available on their website about best practice. Although essential oils are a fantastic alternative to other chemical products; each oil is different and should be resected and treated differently. You wouldn’t pop pills without reading the label and essential oils should be treated in the same way. Please be sure you look up how to use each oil before opening. Thank you and all the best.


Hi Catherine. I love essential oils and you have given a great review of some different companies products
Great to see you have shared this information as it will give people better knowledge on what to buy


Hi vicki,
Thank you for reading my post and leaving a comment on it.
I am happy to here that you love essential oils and my article.
To be honest, I just hope it can help people.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!


I’m totally new to essential oils but have heard great things. Out of curiosity, are there any concerns about running into allergies, or are these pretty safe in general?

I just tend to have skin related irritation pretty easily and didn’t see anything regarding whether or not an oil could be hypo allergenic or not. It may be a silly question! But as a total newbie I don’t want buy something that makes my skin go crazy in hives!


Hi Craig,
You can actually get essential oils that will help your allergies and I would recommend searching for the essential oil that can be used to treat it. Be sure to read carefully about how to use it as each oil is different. Some should be diffused, others applied topically and some can even be eaten. Please get professional advice before using.
Also, there are different methods for testing essential oils to ensure that you do not have an allergy before application. Please check with your local professional for further details.
I hope this clears things up for you. If you have any further questions, please reach out to me.


I have a question for you. Are fragrance oils and essential oils two different things? My wife buys oils from a company called P&J Trading, but they sell fragrance oils. Anyway, we have been shopping around for oils to use in a diffuser. I am not too well versed in all of these oils, it’s kind of confusing. Maybe you can point me in the right direction. Thanks!


Hi Steve,
Please stay away from fragrance oils! I am not familiar with this particular company, however I do know that many fragrance oils can be detrimental to your health. Please look for ‘pure essential oils’ in the future. They have a huge range of health benefits when used correctly.
I would also recommend familiarising yourself with only one or two to begin with. Each oil is very different and can be used in different ways.
Safe essential oils such as lavender, chamomile and frankincense are the ones that I would usually recommend to beginners.
I hope this helps. Please get back in touch if you have any further questions.


I also love essential oils for multiple purposes and find this very informative. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Kima,
You are welcome. I am pleased to hear that you are already using a variety of essential oils.
Thank you for your feed back and all the best.


I recently purchased essential oils for my mother and I struggled finding a brand that I could trust as I wasn’t very knowledgeable in the field of essential oils. I think your article is very helpful and informative and I sure could of used it a little while back! I will definitely refer to your site if I have any future questions.


Hi Shyla,
I am sorry to hear that you had difficulty finding the right brand for you.
I am pleased to hear that you will be stopping by again in the future.
i will be happy to help in any way that I can.


This review is very thorough! I find it quite surprising that some companies don’t stipulate whether they test on animals.


Hi Dom, I found this unusual too. If they don’t then it is likely that they would be proud to mentions this.
Thank you for stopping by and commenting.


Great list of essential oils. I think I like Vida the best. Your reviews are great. I like the fact that Vida essential oils are all organic. I am willing to pay a bit more for a high quality made products. Great information and I am certainly going to check into Vida Essential Oils.


Hi Leahrae,
It is nice to see you again.
I am glad that you have found your favourite! I too am willing to pay for better quality. I believe you get what you pay for.
All the best and have a great day!


I love this review!

Thank you so much for reviewing different companies with pros and cons, I am always struggling to decide on a company.

I always hear about the usual ones like Doterra, and I often wonder if the products are really as good as they say. I know that they do a lot of promoting people to join and sell their products, which too me seems like a bit of a scam.
What are your thoughts on this?


Hi Brianne,
I am really happy that you enjoyed reading this review, I am pleased that it has helped you too.
I am not familiar with the company that you mention. Every company is different and you should do your research on them and their products before purchasing.
I recommend always buying pure essential oils and if you can afford to pay for organic then you should do this too.
I hope that this has cleared things up a little bit for you.
All the best!


I’m a huge fan of essential oils and always try to go with the Organic Aromas. I use them for many things. I also am willing to pay for quality. Thanks for the review.


Hi Wendy,
You are more than welcome. Please to hear that you are already making these choices.
What are your favourite organic oils?
Thank you for stooping by and take care.
