Partners in educating essential oil enthusiasts
In addition to providing vibrant, high-quality essential oils and aromatherapy products, we believe in helping our customers get the most out of every drop by educating themselves on effective uses, benefits, and safety guidelines. We partner with the Aromahead Institute, an accredited and industry-leading aromatherapy school and certification program, to share educational content with our community. The Aromahead Institute offers evidence-based online courses that make the study and therapeutic use of essential oils accessible to thousands of engaged and active students across the globe.
You deserve the confidence of knowing your aromatherapy products are pure and sustainable.
At Aromatics International, we promise to always be 100% transparent with you about where our products come from and how they’re made.
In this guide, you’ll take a look behind the scenes at Aromatics to learn how we grow, harvest, wildcraft, and distill our own plants to create pure and effective aromatherapy products. Taking part in all aspects of the process is one way we ensure you receive the highest quality essential oils, hydrosols, blends, and carrier oils in the world.
This guide will also introduce you to some of our friends from other countries who run small-scale farms, utilizing organic, sustainable practices to craft pure essential oils and carriers.
If you'd like to learn more about the ins-and-outs of sustainable practices themselves, such as the impact of small-scale farming, the difference between certified organic and organically grown plants, how wildcrafting respects nature’s cycles, and more, check out our guide to Ethical and Sustainable Aromatherapy.
