Aromatherapy Supplies

I am often asked to recommend where to buy Aromatherapy Supplies from. It is all well and good to have these wonderful recipes but where do you buy the essential oils, the raw ingredients, and other essential aromatherapy supplies for making your own aromatherapy perfumes, blends, natural skin care products, and more ...

It is important that you use top quality ingredients and that you buy your aromatherapy supplies from reputable sources. This list of suppliers which Ihave compiled will help you find the very best that I personally recommend for purchasing Aromatherapy Supplies.

I've also included some natural skin care products, which if you're like me you may not always have the time to prepare these yourself. I know how time consuming it can be making many of these essential oil recipes, especially some of the natural skin care recipes. Complete Aromatherapy Oils & Supplies has nearly everything you could possibly need to get started with your Essential Oil recipe making. They stock many good quality products including Essential Oils, Carrier Oils, Hydrosols and Flower Waters, Liquid Soaps, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Bath Salts, Facial Clays, and more.

Apart from the necessary raw ingredients you will need to make your own essential oil recipes, you need equipment such as bottles and jars, scales, funnels, measuring spoons and jugs. also stocks all of these, just use their search box below to find what you're looking for.

You'll also find many different types of aromatherapy diffusers and vaporizers as well as beeswax and other candles on this website.

For easy searching on the website, simply add the product you are looking for in the search box below and click the 'Find' button: uses Starwest Botanicals for their essential oils and other aromatherapy products. Starwest Essential Oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure and undiluted. The distillation process occurs either at the site where the plants are grown or at a distillery. Each oil is tested for purity and strength using the gas chromatography method.

House of Nutrition

This supplier stocks a wide range of the popular Aura Cacia aromatherapy essential oils, carrier oils and their natural skin care line. This includes many products such as creams, massage oils, mists, mineral bath products, body polishes, and much more. They also have a great range of ceramic and electric aromatherapy diffusers as well as refills.

Their essential oil blends are gorgeous, I personally love their meditation blend which includes patchouli, nutmeg, lemon and rosewood. You could even check out some of their other blends and experiment yourself!

There are plenty of other great products on this website so have a look around. I haven't tried this particular range myself but I love the name Kiss My Face !

Two of my favorite natural skin care lines are Aveda and Jurlique. I use both of these, when I am not making my own products of course! Both of these lines use plant-based, natural, organic ingredients and do not use animal testing. Both have wonderful mission/vision statements too that I just had to include them here:

"Our mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility - not just in the world of beauty, but around the world."

The Jurlique Vision is to inspire people to achieve well-being through Purity, Integrity and Care.

  • Purity: Natural plant extracts and organically and bio-dynamically grown herbs.
  • Integrity: Ethical, honest, sincere and direct communication and behavior with each other, staff, customers and the public in general.
  • Care: Care for our products, for the individual, for others, for the environment, for the land and the planet.

As well as having fabulous skin care products, both Aveda and Jurlique also have a range of essential oils and carrier oils. Aveda also has one of the best hair care product ranges I've ever come across.

So you can imagine my excitement when I came across this website which sells both of these lines at hugely discounted prices along with free shipping anywhere in the world.

The other great thing I later found out is that they also stock many other products that I would normally buy from a department store or at duty free such as mascara, perfume, and other makeup. This is now my 'one-stop online shop' for all my beauty supplies!

Ageless Skin Care

After using Aveda products for many years I have now come across an even better natural skin care range - Ageless. The formulator and co-founder of Aveda, Prakash Purohit, sold Aveda to Estee Lauder (for $340 million) and started a boutique company for developing skin care which is known as the best in the world. Ageless skin care is the best he's made and is based on the well known Agel EXO anti-oxidant, the very latest in nutrient delivery - suspension gel technology.

It's not just the great ingredients that are in Ageless skin care but it's also what's not in it! There are no nasty parabens, no sodium lauryl sulfate, no lanolin, no mineral oils, all of which are found in a lot of skin care products.

This is a single product range suitable for all skin types because it has been formulated to normalize the skin surface, pH and skin cell turnover.

Other products on the market are looking for a quick fix to reduce wrinkles and other signs of ageing whereas Ageless skin care is a long term solution. Check it out, it really is amazing!

Aromastik - Lavender inhaler

100% essential oil of lavender from the pristine rolling fields of north east Tasmania. Aromastik can help calm and compose you in trying times. Perfect for work, travel and home, Aromastik can also be used to block out unpleasant odours.

Please check back regularly to this page as I will be updating it as I find more aromatherapy supplies that I recommend.
