We have been selling aromatherapy products and essential oils online since January 2014. I started the business with my Mum and just a handful of essential oils. It was exciting and the business quickly grew with our range increasing to over 1000 products! This meant we had to take on staff and move to larger premises, which we have now done three times. Being well established in the Aromatherapy market, we sell to the NHS, Colleges, Aromatherapists, Masseurs and home users. Just recently we have joined forces with Qualified Aromatherapist and Nurse, Teresa Barron. Teresa will help contribute to our blog with articles and information about essential oils and aromatherapy. Please see Teresa’s details at the bottom of this post.
At Essential Oils Online, our ethos is to sell 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils at competitive prices and provide excellent customer service. Quality is our priority and we always choose the best options, like single distilled Australian Tea Tree essential oil. Many Amazon and Ebay sellers will sell the cheaper commercial grade essential oils which are inferior quality and very cheap! As a member of the Aromatherapy Trade Council we would always recommend you bought from a registered member as they have to adhere to strict guidelines. Our costs our kept low as we cut out the middle man, we therefore sell direct to the public at trade prices.
Well we certainly try to be by selling as many UK products as we can. We have one of the largest selections of English essential oils, carrier oils and floral waters in the UK. Our suppliers are as local as possible so we can to keep our carbon footprint low. The parcels are filled with biodegradable loose fill and we used recycled boxes if available. We are also trying to swap to compostable plastic bags for our loose ingredients. The plastic bottles we use are mainly PET, which is recyclable and many of our used bottles and containers are recycled. I drive an electric car to work and we are part of Ecologi, who plant trees to make our workforce a climate positive one.
Thanks for reading, Joanna
