Ready to play chemist and create your very own essential oil blends? In the old days, people had to use 2ml bottles to try out blends and decide whether the recipe was good enough for a bigger batch. However, what if the combination stinks (literally)? Are you willing to waste any of your precious essential oils during this trial-and-error phase?

Not if you have Plant Therapy's fragrance test strips! It takes the guesswork out of blending essential oils by giving you an idea of the scent without having to actually blend them in a bottle. All you have to do is put 2 to 3 drops of your chosen oils on the strip, let it sit for a bit, and evaluate the scent!

Also, ever noticed how an essential oil's scent seems to change or dissipate moments after application? That's because some essential oils tend to evaporate quickly when exposed to oxygen. Using the strip and letting the oils soak for some time gives you a more accurate scent compared to sniffing it right out of the bottle!

Once you've found the perfect recipe, don't forget it by writing which oils you used on the wide end of the strip. This book consists of 40 strips so you can now blend to your heart's content!

Are you in the essential oil business? This fragrance test book is a far more economical and efficient way to share your favourite scents.

Description

Based in Twin Falls, Idaho, Plant Therapy was established in 2011 and is a leading supplier of organic essential oils, carrier oils, pre-diluted roll-ons, and more. All of their oils are 100% pure and free from any additives, adulterants or dilutions. 

How to use Essential Oils

Diffuse

Add 2-4 drops of essential oil to your diffuser after having added water to the fill line. Some oils may require 4-8 drops to be added.

Massage

Essential oils should always be diluted before applying to the skin. Blend essential oil with coconut oil, almond oil or any other suitable carrier oil for massage.

Inhalation

Essential oils suitable for inhalation should be diluted by adding 1-2 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head and the bowl of water. With your eyes closed, inhale the scent for up to 5 minutes at a time.

Other uses

You can add 3-5 drops of essential oil to a full bath of water, or onto a face washer placed in the bottom of your shower.

Rollerbottles are handy for ‘on the go’ applications – simply fill a rollerbottle with your preferred carrier oil and add some drops of your essential oil. You can also fit a rollerball top to an essential oil bottle rather than using a separate bottle – make sure to dilute your oil however. If that sounds like too much work, you can simply purchase ready made rollerbottles.

Essential oils are great additions to bases to make your own personal care items such as soaps, face creams or shampoos. You can also use essential oils to help cut down on chemicals in your cleaning supplies. Make sure to check out our blog articles for more ideas!

EO Business Builders

Essential Oil Business Builders

The demand for essential oils has steadily grown over the last few years and so has the number of businesses trying to make it in this industry. Here we share a few tips on how to grow your business beyond family and friends.

Choosing The Right Bottles

There are two main things you have to look out for when choosing the right bottles for your essential oils. They have to be both protective and portable. Clear bottles may look great on bright-coloured oils but can wreak havoc on the quality. To avoid getting your oils spoiled by UV rays before they even reach your customer's hands, your best bet is to go for coloured bottles. Amber and blue bottles do a good job of preserving your oils' aromatic and therapeutic properties.

Next, you have to make sure the bottles are leak-proof and won't break while in transit. And you certainly won't want to lug around oils in huge containers. They have to be small enough for easy transport yet can hold enough oil for your customers to judge whether they like it or not. Smaller bottles in 1ml and 2ml capacity are perfect for giving out samples.

You also want to have your EO accessories of the same high quality as your oils. This means staying far away from plastic bottles and plastic roller balls. We like to use steel roller balls that glide ever so smoothly on the skin and are sure to give your customers a more positive impression.

Getting Your Name Out There

Every EO seller starts by giving samples to friends and family and then hopes to grow their business via word of mouth. While this is a foolproof way to get your name out there, it is quite limiting. Here are a few things you could try to grow your business exponentially:

1. Attend community events.

Be an active member of your community and be in the know when a local event is brewing up. Trade shows, festivals, markets, and concerts generally see a decent amount of foot traffic and are a good opportunity to introduce your brand. Sign up as a vendor and arm yourself with business cards, samples, coupons, and brochures. If you can't afford brochures just yet, just a banner or a display announcing your social media accounts could work wonders in promoting your business.

2. Go beyond community events.

To further grow your client base, start joining bigger events outside your community. A lot of organisations hosting these events normally look for "sponsors" or donations for raffle prizes. It's a great opportunity to get your product and name out there.

3. Hold a class.

A lot of people are interested in essential oils but have no idea exactly where to begin. Tap into this market and hold a class or workshop. Our DIY kits and packs are a fun way to educate people about the many benefits of essential oils!

Safety Cautions

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:

  • Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.

  • Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.

  • Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
