Our family uses essential oils in our home every single day, and Plant Therapy is one of our favorite brands to use. They are high-quality and affordable, which makes them perfect for the grace-filled, natural homemaker!
Our family discovered Plant Therapy essential oils several years ago, and we quickly fell in love with these oils!
Plant Therapy is a leading supplier of essential oils and essential oil accessories. They are committed to providing the absolute highest quality essential oils and are committed to educating their customers on their uses, safety, and efficacy through their website and blog.
Did you catch that? Not only does Plant Therapy sell high-quality essential oils, but they educate their customers on best practices and safety measures for using them.
Y’all, this is HUGE. As I’ve written about many times in the past, our family is not brand loyal when it comes to essential oils. There are oils companies out there that tout that they are the be all, end all and there are no equivalents. But that is simply not true.
Not one essential oil brand has the corner on the market. And, frankly, there are some brands out there that do not properly educate their customers on how to use essential oils safely.
While Will and I use a variety of essential oil brands, three things keep us coming back to Plant Therapy:
- They are high quality.
- They educate using certified aromatherapists.
- They are affordable!
I want to expand on these three in this post:
1. They are high quality.
Plant Therapy’s standards of quality are some of the strictest in the industry. Before they sell an essential oil, they do everything possible to establish that it is 100% pure, natural, and of the highest quality, making it appropriate for use in aromatherapy.
To ensure that each oil meets these strict standards, Plant Therapy works directly with world renowned essential oil expert, Robert Tisserand, and several analytical laboratories!
Robert Tisserand is a highly-reputed aromatherapist, and it speaks volumes to me that Plant Therapy works directly with him to ensure the quality of their oils!
As well, check out what Plant Therapy has to say about their oil testing:
Our essential oils are first organoleptically tested by Robert Tisserand before being sent to a third party testing facility. Robert has been evaluating essential oils professionally for over 40 years. Organoleptic testing means smelling the oil from a testing strip over time – some characteristics do not reveal themselves until the oil has been evaporating for 30 minutes or more. It also includes evaluating the color, consistency and general appearance of an oil, and comparing it to what a good quality oil should look like and smell like.
Following this, our oils are sent to one of several third-party laboratories where they undergo multiple tests including Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry (also known as GC/MS testing). Every batch of oil we receive goes through both rounds of testing, and these tests will show us the quality of the oil and also what is in the oil. Most contaminants or adulterants show up with these tests, and for those that don’t, if we suspect that some of what looks like a natural constituent of an oil might be a synthetic addition, we use chiral analysis – a more sophisticated form of gas chromatography – to find out if it is in fact, a natural constituent or a synthetic addition.
Even though we work with distillers and farmers who have repeatedly proven to provide excellent quality essential oils, when Plant Therapy claims that our oils are 100% pure and of the highest quality, we want to make sure that we are doing everything possible to guarantee that.

2. They educate using certified aromatherapists.
Customers are also welcome to call or email to ask questions. We had the privilege of getting to interview one of their aromatherapists for a blog post we wrote about safe essential oil usage with babies!
3. They are affordable!
The phrase “you get what you pay for” can be true. But it doesn’t mean that every single product that is more affordable than a competitor’s product is inferior.
This can especially be the case in the world of essential oils.
There are a couple big MLMs that sell oils. Several of my friends sell with these groups, and I truly love many of their oils. If you were to look at my vast collection of oils today, you would see that’s it made up of a number of brands.
The different companies produce different blends, and that is where I might chose one company over the other–but only for those specific oils.
But to say that a MLMs oils are superior to Plant Therapy’s oils would simply be false. It’s not hard to see why many of those oils cost more when you begin to look at the layers of people who have to be paid.
Is it OK to ever buy from a MLM? Absolutely! I do so myself.
But does it mean that Plant Therapy‘s oils aren’t good? Quite the contrary.
I personally love that Plant Therapy has made their oils affordable for the masses.
The Erin of five years ago could have never afforded pricier oils. And I know the you of today might be in the same boat.
I’m thankful that Plant Therapy‘s oils are assessable to those on a budget.
