10 reasons why aromatherapy students trust Aromatics International
1. We were founded to provide quality essential oils for aromatherapy students!
Aromatics International was founded by aromatherapy teachers, for aromatherapy students.
More than 20 years ago, Andrea Butje and Cindy Black co-founded the Aromahead Institute to teach the art and science of essential oils, but they struggled to find a proven source of pure essential oils for their students to practice with.
Andrea conducted a lab test on one of her bottles of “frankincense oil” and discovered that it only actually contained 2% true frankincense. The rest was synthetic! That was the moment when she knew something had to be done.
Using pure essential oils is the foundation of aromatherapy. Impure oils don’t offer therapeutic benefits. In fact, they can even cause negative reactions. She and Cindy founded Aromatics International to source and import only the purest essential oils, carriers, and aromatherapy products in the world.
2. We’re owned and operated by certified aromatherapists
In addition to being founded to support students, our owners have all been aromatherapy students themselves!
To this day, Aromatics International is owned and operated by certified aromatherapists.
We remain committed to holistic aromatherapy education and reliable information, and to offering the highest-quality products in the world—the same ones we use for ourselves and our families.
Each of our team members is an experienced certified aromatherapist who is well versed in the complexity and nuance of essential oils.
3. Transparent product information
You deserve to know all the details about your essential oils! We’ll never conceal information from you or leave you guessing. We’ll share details about the kind of information you should expect from your essential oil company below, as well as where you can find it on the Aromatics website.
4. Batch-specific GC/MS lab reports
How can you be sure the essential oils you’re buying are pure? The only way to know for certain is with a lab test called “GC/MS.”
Every batch of essential oil we receive at Aromatics International is tested using GC/MS technology and validated by a third-party chemist. We provide the reports on our website.
A GC/MS report lists the chemical components present in an essential oil along with their percentages. And chemical components determine each oil’s therapeutic properties! As an aromatherapy student, seeing an oil’s components will give you insights into its benefits and uses.
On our website, you can find batch-specific GC/MS reports for each essential oil we carry. Simply search for the oil you are looking for, then click on the GC/MS Data section below the description to find all the details.
5. Distillation dates & details
Because all essential oils have shelf-lives, we also share when our essential oils were distilled. You can find distillation dates on the GC/MS reports for each oil. This information is important because the fresher your essential oils are, the more vibrant, potent and effective they will be!
We also offer details about where each oil was sourced and how it was produced. These details can impact essential oil chemistry, safety considerations and more!
6. Small batch, single origin essential oils
Our owners nurture strong relationships with small-scale farmers, distillers, and producers around the world. Many of them have become our close friends!
These hard working people share our value for sustainability and take pride in their products. They follow traditional practices, honoring quality over profit.
We offer single-origin oils as a way of supporting their craft, tracking sustainability, and ensuring quality from plant to package.
7. 100% organic or wildcrafted products
You deserve the highest-quality essential oils, free of synthetic chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers.
All of our essential oils are guaranteed 100% pure: certified organic, organically crafted, or wildcrafted.
Certified organic: These plants have gone through official certification to verify that they’re grown with organic practices, without synthetic chemicals.
Organically grown: Certification isn’t available in some regions. In that case, the farmers devote themselves to traditional, natural, and organic practices.
Wildcrafted: These plants are harvested by hand in the wild. Harvesters always leave enough behind for future generations.
GC/MS tests guarantee that each oil has the ideal therapeutic profile for aromatherapy and is free from any unwanted synthetic substances that may cause safety issues.
8. Sustainable sourcing & eco-friendly business practices
In addition to working with distillers whose practices ensure the long-term health of essential oil producing plants, we minimize our impact by choosing eco-friendly and biodegradable packaging materials and eliminating single use plastics.
