  • Essential Oils

    Afternoon all,

    As a newbie I thought I'd ask for advice as to essential oil suppliers. I've been though all the great supplier info on this forum but just wondered if anyone had preferences?

    I think essential oils and quality are so crucial I thought I'd try and get some feedback.

    Thank you!

    Elly

    The three I use are:

    Base Formula
    Amphora
    Fresholi

    Then if you want a really mind-boggling choice there's New Directions (I've not bought from there though).

          Has anyone used Amphora Aromatics (https://www.amphora-wholesale.com)?

          Ah - just noticed that ElaineJ mentions them.... how's their quality / customer service? They seem quite cheap!

            I've not used the wholesale side but have bought some of the more difficult to find EOs from the retail side.

            Quality is fine for my purpose (fragrancing soaps etc.) I can't give an opinion re aromatherapy as I'm not an aroma therapist. MSDS details are directly downloadable.

                  Essential Oil

                  Hi,
                  There are some essential oils which are naturally anti-inflammatory like German chamomile. The chamazulene compound found in German chamomile shows strong anti-inflammatory activity when used both topically and orally. You can know more information on MOD EDIT - PLEASE READ THE FORUM RULES

                    Essential Oils

                    Hi,
                    When purchasing a Essential Oil it is important to know there is a difference between an Essential Oil and a Fragrance Oil. You can get more information from Mod edit...............now you're getting boring.

                        Aura Wholesale is another - not sure if I'm allowed to type the address of the site but they are registered with the Soil Association and the ATC - They only sell therapeutic graded oils.

                        I use these at my practice- they post worldwide and next day to the UK too .

                        They are Devon based if I remember right?
