We are passionate about using and selling only high quality, vibrant, therapeutic, GC/MS tested essential oils. We personally import all the oils we sell directly from distillers and a few distributors.
Right from the beginning, Aromatics International has traveled internationally to personally visit with small growers and distillers of therapeutic-quality essential oils. This tradition of commitment, respect for the growers and distillers, and a rigorous standard with respect to quality continues today. All oils sold by Aromatics International are individually imported and quality tested to ensure the highest therapeutic qualities. We believe that quality is absolutely crucial, particularly as increasing evidence comes to light regarding the dangers of synthetic chemicals and adulterated oils that too commonly make their way into the international market. Aromatics International remains at the forefront of quality control and chemical analysis, ensuring that our customers receive the highest quality products that we can obtain.
Most distillers only grow and distill a small selection of plants from their respective regions around the world. Karen continues to buy from a wide variety of distillers to acquire all of the oils sold at Aromatics International, working directly with distillers in Australia, New Zealand, Ethiopia, South Africa, Madagascar, Bulgaria, Siberia, Sri Lanka, Slovenia, Indonesia, Italy, Spain, England, France, Canada and the United States. The entire essential oil industry brings together an international community of people who care deeply about plants and the powerful healing properties of essential oils. You can sense this passion in the quality of our products!
With a life-long passion for essential oils, Karen has dedicated her life to helping others achieve happier, healthier lives through health education. A Certified Aromatherapist and longtime student of herbal medicine, Karen has the additional benefit of previous professional experience as a Registered Nurse and former owner of Recreate, a specialty boutique in Missoula, MT that compassionately served the needs of breast cancer survivors in the area.
Laren, Karen’s husband and partner, takes great pleasure in working behind the scenes at Aromatics International. A Certified Aromatherapist, Larry might be the one you talk with when calling Aromatics International. He helps maintain our extensive inventory of essential oils and other products, as well as helping to pack and ship oils to Aromatics International customers. Laren is a Certified Prosthetist (maker and fitter of artificial limbs) and a Certified Orthotist (maker and fitter of braces). Karen and Laren love horseback riding together in the backcountry of Montana. On most summer weekends they are to be found deep in the mountains, drinking in the natural beauty of local wilderness areas. They have two wonderful grown children - Jenny and Jaren and an awesome daughter-in-law, Alivia.
