Resources

 

This is a list of suppliers for your essential oils and accessories. These include the suppliers that I use, but there are many others. Often I find that one supplier does not have the oil I want, or doesn’t have the size I want. (Note that this is a list in progress. I keep adding more links as I find them or need them.

Let me know if I should add a name to the list!

Essential oils

It is important to buy quality essential oils. You may pay more for them, but you will use less and ultimately see better results.

This list is in alphabetic order!

You may also be able to find some of these brands of oils on Amazon.com – if you have Amazon Prime it will save on shipping costs!

Carrier oils and butters

I typically use the same suppliers as those listed above for essential oils.

Accessories

I get a lot of my supplies from Aromatics.com They do have some of the more obscure items, such as a lip balm holder!

I also find a lot on Amazon.com, such as lip balm tubes.

I tend to look at Aromatics, then compare prices with Amazon, if supplies are available there – but do be sure that the items are like for like, for example, are plastic items PET plastic etc.

Books and Courses

There are any number of books on essential oils. These are a few that I like. Some are fairly basic but have a lot of good information.

Books

Essential Oils for Beginners: The Guide to Get Started with Essential Oils and Aromatherapy, by Althea Press – Amazon link
This is useful as a quick reference guide to most of the common essential oils (and some less common). I don’t reference this as much as the next book – just because I don’t find it has as much information as the Essential Oils, Natural Remedies book.

Essential Oils, Natural Remedies, by Althea Press – Amazon link
I really like this book for easy-to-access information. It is a book for beginners, though, and it does cover over 70 different oils, but if you’re looking for information on a less-known oil you may not find it here.

The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy, by Valerie Ann Worwood – Amazon link
This is a very comprehensive book that contains a lot of information about oils, treatments and blends. I love this book for the information, but I don’t find it as easy to read, which I think is the format – it uses a fairly dense, two-column layout.

Essential Living: Aromatherapy Recipes for Health & Home, by Andrea Butje – Amazon link
This is a short, easy-to-read, book. It’s only about 80 pages long, so the information is limited. But it does give a good overview to essential oils, and the recipes it contains are lovely. Andrea Butje is extremely knowledgeable about essential oils, and I always trust any blend she includes. I just wish there were more recipes in it!
