My Honest Review of The Best Brands Of Essential Oils! (Part 2 of 2)

First Botany Cosmeceuticals

First Botany Cosmeceuticals is a popular and cherished brand of essential oils.

Their Jasmine oil (King of Oils) is really popular and hundreds of people have used and loved it.

Note they sell Jasmine Officinale and not Jasmine Grandiflorum which has a much sweeter smell.

Purity and Quality

Purity and Quality

First Botany Cosmeceuticals claim to make 100% therapeutic grade and pure oils. Some users believe that their oils smell pure without any synthetic quality to them.

However, a few reviewers found their Jasmine oil had slightly synthetic undertones.

Many soap makers and aromatherapists use this brand in their products and treatments and are pleased with the quality. You can buy the oils in 4 oz or 5 ml, 10 ml and 15 ml sizes.

Pricing        

Pure Jasmine oil is supposed to be very expensive since it takes a few million flowers to produce a small bottle of it.

Repeat customers of this company however believe one is getting a great deal from First Cosmeceuticals by spending just 31 USD for 4 fl oz. I have not tried this oil but hope to get my hands on it soon.

The oils are concentrated enough for use in diffusers where they work for a long time and diffuse aromatic blends for different health and mental issues.

The problem with certain sets such as the Best Blend Set of 6 which does not have the individual oils listed on the bottles.

So, if you are allergic to particular oil, you need to visit their website and study the products and ensure that oil is not present in the blend. Some users feel that the oils are diluted...so, while your room will smell great; these oils might not be useful for therapeutic or healing purposes.

Pricing                         

Healing Solutions essential oil pricing is on the very affordable end of the scale.

The Best Blend, Family Doctor and Sampler sets from Healing Solutions are well received.

All have received great review from users. I have tried the first set, and my opinion is mixed.

I do not hate them but like other reviewers have said, I was not happy when I used them for therapeutic reasons.

They also sell each blend individually and their Good Night and Breathe Blends are very popular. Kids sleep easily with the former ones while the latter is great for calming allergies.

Customer Service

Their website needs some work and many users feel there are inadequate user instructions as far as their diffuser sets were concerned.

Their packaging leaves much to be desired...too-many oils leak as experienced by several users.

On the downside, packaging of the oils needs better handling...many users received leaking products. Some blends are also diluted to the point that they dissipate quickly.

That said- NOW essential oils are great for someone who is a beginner to aromatherapy. Some users who used their MSM blend felt that their pain got worse and switched back to their older brands for instant relief.

Conclusion

And that concludes my honest review of the 20 best essential oil brands. I hope you find it useful.

Not all of us can afford the pricier essential oil brands by top companies.

Many of the essential oil companies listed above may be new and upcoming; some of them even do not have a social-media or an online presence.

That said; they still sell some great product for you to try, especially if you are new to Aromatherapy or are just testing the waters.

If you love a particular oil, you can always move on to pricier, higher quality essential oil brands.

Enjoy experimenting!
