Do you accommodate bulk orders?

Yes. Please visit our bulk orders page for information on bulk orders. All of our bulk sizes and custom bulk orders are at a significant discount.

How are your oils packaged?

We strive to use recyled packing material whenever possible. Small bubble bags are used for the essential oils. In a wholesale order, the essential oils might be packaged in a protected box instead of the small bubble bags.

What kind of a container are the bulk oils shipped in, and how do I open these containers?

All the bulk oils are packed in special aluminum bottles. To open these aluminum bottles take a pair of pliers and open the white plastic tab. Then there will be a clear plug with a ring. Don't use your fingers or pliers to pull the ring, gently use the pliers to remove the plug along the edge of the bottle, go slow and it is easy. Occassionally 4 and 8 ounce amber glass bottles might be used for the same sized oils ordered 

You can replug the bottle, but ultimately you want to pour your oil into glass bottles. You can store it in the aluminum for a month or more as it is a non-reactive substance that all the distillers use for shipping, but glass is always most ideal for oils.

What if I can't find the country I want to ship to in the drop-down menu?

If you do not see the country you want to ship to in the drop-down menu, we do not offer International Shipping to that country due to the regulations of the United States Postal Service.

Product Questions

Do you sell gift certificates?

Yes, online gift certificates are available here.

You don't offer the products I'm looking for, what should I do?

Please contact us with any special requests.  We are often able to import oils directly for special orders.  We are also happy to personally recommend excellent, reputable resources for carrier oils and other aromatherapy products.

How do I know the products you carry are 100% pure, natural, and free of chemicals and pesticides?

In order for essential oils to have a therapeutic effect we believe they must be pure plant extracts. The best way to assure the purity of each batch of oil is by testing the oil with Gas Chromatography/ Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS). At Aromatics International every batch of oil purchased from a distiller or distributor is tested with GC/MS. We only buy from distillers and distributers who sell oils extracted from plants that have not been sprayed or treated with any chemicals.

Are your oils organic?

All of Aromatics International’s essential oils are either certified organic, wild crafted, or unsprayed. All of the oils we sell are free of chemicals, herbicides, and pesticides. This supports the health and vitality of the soil, the plant, and therefore the essential oil itself.

What are your prices based on?

The pricing of essential oils is based on the amount of oil in the plant and how easily the oil can be extracted from the plant.
