Being frugal, I try to make sure I get the best deal when I buy essential oils. As moms we make a lot of buying decisions and for those of us who like to be healthy, we also have to decide the best place to get the essential oils we use on our families.
Factors to Consider When You Buy Essential Oils:
- How much will I have to use? Whether we diffuse essential oils, use them topically, or ingest them, I want to make sure I don’t have to use 10 drops when 1 will do. I have found that buying cheap oils often gets me cheap results. Pure essential oils go a long way and we frugal moms like to get the pure stuff so we don’t have to use as much.
- Are they pure? With US labeling laws being so lax, companies can write “100% pure” on their label and the whole bottle doesn’t have to be pure oil. The part of the bottle that contains oil, has to be pure, but who knows what other kinds of fillers or chemicals have been added to the bottle? I know if I’m putting something on my family, I don’t want to take any chances that what I put on them could harm them in any way!
- Is the company a wellness company or just a supplement company? It’s important that the company where you buy essential oils know how the body works. The company I use creates the most essential oils blends in the world because they know how the body works and what oils work well together. This company makes oil blends FIRST to fill a need and then if they earn something from it, great.
- Does the company I use own their own farms? Can you actually visit their farms and see them distill their oil? Many companies claim that they have their own farms, but what they are really saying is that they have farms that they use. They don’t have full control of whether pesticides are used, whether solvents are used in distillation, what kinds of seeds are used or guarantee the best quality oil. Ask if you are allowed to visit the farms they own.
By all means, NEVER buy your oils from Amazon even if they say Young Living on the bottle. There are bottle caps you can buy that look just like the unsealed bottles. People fill the bottles with carrier oil or some other substance and add these sealed bottle caps and play it off as a true bottle of Young Living oil. I have seen videos posted with oils purchased from Young Living directly and those purchased from Amazon and they are clearly not the same thing. When you buy directly from the company you have access to all the customer service and information support from your team too.
We have used essential oils in our home for the past four years and have never looked back. They have been amazing and so helpful in so many areas of our lives. They help me, as a mom, be able to feel empowered when one of my family members has a health concern. I can feel like I’m actually doing something to help them improve their health.
