An inside look into how we make our Lavender Artisan Oil


A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Essential Living

I really love the recipes in this book. I'm looking for a reference of all the oils you sell that shows chemical constituents, properties, uses, application, etc. Thank you!


Aromatics International

Hi Connie! So glad you are enjoying the Essential Living Book (: At this time, we don't have a list of all the oils and their properties on one sheet, but if you go into the individual product pages, all the information for the specific products can be found there. Also, if you go into your account by clicking the little person icon by the search bar, then click on the box that says 'Component Search', you can choose the component you are looking for, as well as the percentage by using the sliding bar.

An Essential Resource for Every Budding Aromatherapist

Wow. Just, wow. From the moment I opened this book, I knew I was in for an essential treat. Aromatherapy applications for everything from personal care to kitchen to bath to the office and even travel is covered - Andrea truly thought of everything! And the photos throughout the book are lovely aesthetic touch. This absolutely "essential" book is going to be dog-eared in no time, because I will be resorting to it over and over again!
