We at Plant Therapy strive to bring quality essential oils from ethical, sustainable sources, but we are devoted to being a company that values its customers, its employees, and the community.
We are a people-first company.
Before anything else, we place people first. Our customers and employees are what matter most. We are focused on doing the right thing. We operate with absolute integrity at all times, keeping our customers and employees in mind constantly. So, what does that really mean?
We operate with integrity.
Integrity is at the core of everything we do, whether its transparency with our essential oil batches or sourcing our oils from sustainable and ethical sources.
Our customers really do come first. At Plant Therapy, you the customer are our highest priority. We have a responsibility to you, to provide you with the highest quality products, and freely give the education on how to use those products.
Additionally, what we say is in our essential oil bottles is exactly what they contain – no more and no less.
We’re never satisfied with the status quo.
Even though we hold our products to the highest standards of purity and quality, Plant Therapy is always looking for new ways to improve our existing products or add to our quality lineup of essential oils.
We continually strive to do more for our customers, to provide even better products and more education to ensure the safe and effective use of essential oils.
But we also continually investigate our current methods and products, to always seek to find ways to improve our company from the inside out.
We maintain our flexibility at all times.
Throughout everything, it is important we as a company remain flexible. After all, life has some tendency curveballs. So we’re committed to rolling with the punches without sacrificing quality or integrity.
Flexibility as a company means taking issues on directly when they occur. It means finding ways to solve problems before they occur, of seeing setbacks as challenges and opportunities to grow.
We work to have nothing but positive customer interactions! Our employees always work for frictionless transactions that show how much we care and make our customers say “wow!”
We enjoy the journey!
Life is a journey and its one we are committed to making enjoyable for our customers and our employees.
Employees must have a physically and emotionally safe and secure environment where their talents are recognized and appreciated. We as a company work to hire people who not only meet our high standards of authenticity but also love Plant Therapy! We love people who love Plant Therapy as much as the owners themselves. As we grow, we want both our employees and our customers to be invested in having fun along the way.
We have a can-do attitude.
Life has a way of throwing curveballs. And sometimes it’s easier to say it can’t be done and call it good. But at Plant Therapy, we take a can-do approach to everything we do, whether it’s helping our customers or creating a fun new product. And because of that, we’re able to accomplish more than we ever thought possible.
We keep an attitude of continuous improvement.
Finally, it is important that we continue to look for ways we can improve our company, our products, and our service. We welcome feedback from both our employees and customers, always with an attitude of competing with ourselves. We don’t want to “beat” anyone else, we want to be better than we were yesterday!

I have heard that Plant Therapy is unethical, meaning they don’t get their sources of essential oils from the lands and farmers directly, meaning less pay for the farmers for more Plant Therapy company. I also heard that lavender substitutes are used in your lavender essential oil, and that your essential oils can be harmful to the body. Are these claims true? And if they are not, do you have the sources/data to refute those claims??
Plant Therapy prides itself in its extensive and thorough testing process. We vet all suppliers we get our essential oils from and do rigorous testing on every batch and sample received. Upon receiving a sample from our suppliers, we do various rounds of organoleptic and visual testing. We also have it run on various testing machines with our in-house analytical chemist. If we like what we see from our sample, we will send off for 3rd party GC/MS testing to ensure absolute purity and quality. We also do these rounds of testing on the entire lot once it is received in house. You will notice a scent variance in all of our essential oils, including Sandalwood. This is due in large part to the time of year a plant was harvested, where it was harvested and other natural factors. No two lots usually smell exactly the same and that is natural. However, as stated above you can rest assured our suppliers are highly vetted by our sourcing team and the quality is of the best.
I was wondering if there is a how to use book or brochure available for purchase? It would be nice to have a guide at your fingertips to know exactly what the various oils can do for an individual
Today, I read some disturbing information about the company I used to patronize. So I did a search for the best essential oils and your company consistently was at the top of the list. Then I read your story and was hooked. Integrity, ethical, sustainability, people first—who could ask for more?!! That question was answered when I saw the prices, so affordable!! Can’t wait for my first order to arrive.
Thank you so much for your kind comment, Kathy! We are excited to have you join the PT family! If you have any questions at all about our products or how to use them, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our amazing Customer Satisfaction team at [email protected]
Hi, I’m newer to E. oils, started my education journey last year. I started with oils I could buy at the healthier stores like Aura Cacia and Now. But then via the blog Essential Oils Haven, I found your company. I appreciate the affordable prices (I was NEVER interested in any MLM memberships) the descriptions about each oil and the education available on your site. I also like your packaging. It’s feminine and appealing. The new cardboard tubes are great b/c you could re-use them in fun ways. Thank you for providing the free shipping, great customer service and ‘transparent’ testing and education. I feel comfortable trusting this company even as a beginner.
I’m from Spain. I began in aromatherapy 1 year ago, in a multilevel company, but I want to change to another company with the same OE quality but not in a business multilevel company.
However, I’m worried about the origen of your oils (Where ara located your plantations?) and about the tracking of suply chain. Do you have tracking implemented?
Thank you in advance,
We do not own any farms or plantations. It would be impossible to own farms in different locations across the world that could grow all of the plants required to make each of the essential oils we sell. We do, however, work very closely with each of suppliers to ensure the quality of our oils.
Recently started ordering a few oils from Plant Therapy. I have been ordering exclusively from Mountain Rose Herbs for the last 5+ years. I have heard great feedback from multiple sources on PT Oils. I personally will rarely order anything other than Certified Organic and am very pleased to see that PT has a healthy supply of Organic E.O.’s. I have recieved 6 different oils so far and I am very pleased. I will definatly continue to order from PT. I do have one question regarding the packaging. Although those E.O. bottle containers are super cute and my grandaughter loves to play with them, why not choose packaging that is more eco-friendly (i.e. wrapped in recycled paper)?
Hi Rene! this packaging is actually replacing the old plastic bubble wrap we used to use. Our goal with the tubes was to provide more sustainable packaging as it is both recyclable and reusable. It’s also just one option we’re exploring and you may see other packaging options later. But if you’re looking for some fun ways to reuse the tubes, check out a few of our favorites here.
I love Plant Therapy and I have been using your oils for a couple years now. I would love for your website to reflect the cultural diversity of your customers who use and love your products. As an Black woman I would love to see more representation on your website and in your marketing.
Hi Gabrielle, thank you so much for your feedback and for reaching out. We recognize that we’ve failed to include a diverse representation and BIPOC on our website and that’s not okay. We’ve been actively working correcting that so our marketing reflects our diverse and wonderful customers. Keep an eye out on Facebook in the next week or two for a sneak peek! And you’ll get to see the full extent of what we’ve been working on this holiday season.
I love this company! So easy to work with and the products are great. You always provide extra information which is a bonus.
awesome oils! great company!! love you guys!
Hello! I see that some of your oils say organic and some don’t? I know you have reports of what’s in the oils, but I don’t have hours and hours to research them. Could you please let me know the difference between the two? Thank you for your time. Many blessings!
Hi Sandra! All of our oils are 100% pure without additives or fillers, so they are all the same in that regard. However our organic oils have all been certified USDA organic which means that no GMOs have been used, the soil is clean of prohibited substances for at least three years and no harmful pesticides have been used. No matter which way you shop, you’ll be getting a quality essential oil. You can learn more about our certified organic oils here.
Have had friends who use/sell Doterra Oils and they are ingestible. However, in one response here you indicate Plant Therapy does not stand behind ingesting oils. Does this relate to the oil levels/quality being different than Doterra or is it because your company does not support the use of oils in this way? Am looking for a Frankincense Ferrera that is ingestible and trying to establish whether your product is the same as Doterra?
Hi Donna! All of our essential oils are 100% pure and free from any additives or fillers, so you can be sure you’re getting a quality product. We also include the GC/MS report with our essential oils so you can see exactly what’s in our oils. We don’t recommend the ingestion of essential oils without the supervision of a clinical aromatherapist for safety reasons. You can read more about our ingestion policy here.
Do your oils have an expiration date?
Essential oils don’t expire in the traditional sense, but they do have a shelf life that can be affected by heat, light and oxygen. You can read more about it in detail in this blog post.
Is PT products shipped to Maldives?
We do offer international shipping! You can find more details about shipping here.
HI . I have been using YL for over 20 years now. I have zero interest in the MLM part of it. I just really like the product has worked magic for my health . Having said that I have been looking for another company with equal quality product as I do not like the MLM aspect of YL. I came across others but they were all MLM as well. I was wondering if Plant Therapy oils are indigestible? and if all the oils are therapeutic grade? how do you test your oils ?
Hi beebots! Hopefully I can answer a few of your questions. First of all, Plant Therapy does not recommend ingesting essential oils. There isn’t enough scientific evidence that this is a safe practice for us to stand behind ingestion as a company. All our oils are high-quality, and each batch of every oil is GS/MS tested and a full panel of the chemical constituents is available on each product page. We provide our customers with these results because we truly value transparency, and respecting our customer’s desire to make an, educated choice. We would love to have you try out Plant Therapy!
You are in the right place! I also left YL many years ago. They have a wonderful wholesale account for people that have their own business. I was just starting out in 2016 and I have no complaints. This is the best essential oil company! I have a health ministry and my clients love the essential oils I get from Plant Therapy. One of my clients told me that Plant Therapy oils are better than doterra. I have been with Plant Therapy for 4 years. Plus they have other products that I love to purchase.
How long have you been in business? And are all you oils 100% pure oil, with no chemicals?
Hi Lyndsey, our company was founded in 2011. All of our essentials are 100% pure, have no additives or fillers. We test every single batch of oils for in-depth information on each chemical constituent with GC-MS testing, as well as evaluating each oil’s color, consistency, and general appearance to give you the most accurate information possible. You can trust that you’re getting 100% pure essential oils.
Are your oils tested for pesticide residue? If so by what means. Thank you!
Hi Kim, all our oils go through multiple rounds of third party GC/MS testing. We also have those results published on every product page. In addition to showing that our oils are 100% pure, it also allows you to view the different chemical constituents of each oil.
As a 30+ year practitioner/student of Aromatherapy (since just before Robert Tisserand wrote “The Art Of Aromatherapy”) I have used many quality oils from both other well known brands as well as trusted wholesalers – not one ever being purchased from an MLM (because i’m smart enough to see thru their smoke). While i do not at this very moment have a need for an oil i do not currently possess, having recently discovered Plant Therapy, and also having done the work (research) on your company – i am confident that the next oil i need i will be purchasing from you. The fact that you HAVE the relationship you do with Tisserand Institute is pretty much all i need to know. Looking forward to doing some business soon!
I am from Philippines. Do you ship here or do you have authorized store?
We do ship to the Philippines. 🙂 Check out our shipping page for more information!
I’m new to EO (very new, 2 weeks) I researched for weeks before buying and everything about your company, product, reviews, cost looked like a wonderful package. I took the plunge and bought the 7&7, a sleep EO, and a Kid safe sleep EO. I love them!! I’ve already bought 2 others I was looking at. Got them so quick and used them last night! You have a wonderful company, can’t wait until the next purchase!! One question, do the color of the labels signify anything.
Hi RuthAnn! We’re so happy you love PT as much as we do! Right now, the colors of our bottles don’t mean anything specific, but that’s a great question!
A lot of people I know use oils through an MLM, but the price always got me. I wanted to try oils, so I took to the internet to look up the best non-MLM company. I’m so glad I found Plant Therapy. I’m slowly building my oil supply, and I’m so excited to try all the products you offer!
Anyone who has dealt with customer service already knew the company puts people first. My concerns (which usually only amount to a 4-star rating) are always addressed. Good to know my money is going to a quality company!
I appreciate the way you have committed yourselves to your customers. You make it possible for me to get high quality oils at prices I can actually afford but also don’t make me suspicious. Every order I have placed with you has been far above my expectations, and the one and only issue I’ve had so far was quickly resolved by your customer support team and was simply a misunderstanding on my part. This post sums up why I will be purchasing my oils exclusively from Plant Therapy from now on.
Thank you for making it possible to find safe, effective, and affordable essential oils for my family. I am so glad that I was introduced to plant therapy last summer. I was taking a break from oils because they were too expensive, but not anymore. I am able to order just about every month and I love everything I purchase.
PT is such a great company. The response times on answering questions is unparalleled! I submitted a question about diffusing an oil around my little girl, and PT emailed me back right away. I love the product and the customer service!!
I have just recently started using your products and I absolutely love them you guys are the best
I am trying to figure all this out. I know that it can be very difficult and labor intensive to distill and extract essential oils. How do you guys keep your costs lower? One of the big examples are that it take so much supplies to produce such a small amount of oils how do you gain profit and pay fair wages to the farmers or harvesters? Thank you for answering. There is just so much information out there about essential oils it is hard to know what to believe.
Amber, I’m sure our awesome Customer Service Team will be able to help you with those questions. Feel free to reach out to them at [email protected]. Unfortunately, I do not deal with any finances and won’t be able to provide you with the answers you need 🙂
I would’ve liked for these answers to be public as well. Very good questions. I have wondered the same too.
I too would like this answered publicly.
Great question and I’d like public disclosure on this as well
I’m sure our CS team will be able to answer these questions and everyone is more than welcome to publicly disclose their response. As myself and our other Certified Aromatherapists do not deal with the finances or our relationship with the farms we source from, I am afraid I am unqualified to answer in this particular instance. You can reach Customer Service at [email protected]. Thank you all for your great questions and understanding!
Have someone who knows the answer to address this question. Instead of replying the same answer differently. This is a vital subject individuals want the answer to.
While I’d also like to know the answer to this, I conclude as a consumer of essential oils from an M that if a company is able to source for quality and stability but not pay the insane commissions to middle people, they’d be able to pass on those savings to the consumer. I always thought that having sales people making $20k a month selling oils was really driving up the consumer costs. But I’m here to research the quality of this brand comparatively so I’d also like to know sourcing and fair trade as stated above.
I agree Jonelle. Oils do not have to be a minimum of $20+ price point to be effective. Further more, cut out the mlm aspect and I bet those costs would be similar. How else would an mlm make a profit as it trickles down from mlm to middle sales person (commission) before consumer.
Hi Amber! I think that our previous responses have led to some confusion, and we apologize. Simply put, by being a direct-to-customer company, we are able to source for high-quality and sustainable products without having to pay this high price of employing a middleman. This lets us base our prices on fair market value, instead of basing sale price on the need to cover commissions. Additionally, the essential oil industry as a whole is very popular right now, allowing larger, more established companies to charge more simply for the use of their name, due to their popularity. We don’t want to disparage our competitors – we strive to keep a friendly relationship in this industry that we all occupy, and we celebrate the success of other large companies because that success brings more people to this industry. Rather, we offer a different business model that allows us to come down in price.
A company with integrity & a big heart. Gotta love it !
I am so glad I found your company! I previously ordered from MLMs, but the pricing was just too expensive and I didn’t want to be stuck in any kind of subscription. Your prices are reasonable, shipping is fast, and customer service is top-notch. It’s easy to tell that you really care about your customers and want to give them the most helpful information. I love the way your social media staff interacts with your customers, too. It’s like having a friend rather than just some faceless company. Kudos on a job well done!
Thank you so much, Jaime!
Thank you for the way you run your company!
Plant Therapy doesn’t just talk about having great company values, they implement those values in all their interactions with customers and on social media. Awesome job!
With the essential oils MLMs battling it out all over my facebook and so many misleading statements it was really difficult from me to know what to choose when it came to selecting oils. Plant Therapy has made it easy. I love the lower cost, risk, and pressure that comes with not buying into an MLM program. I love the transparency of Plant Therapy and that they rise above the Facebook battles, never bashing other companies. Most importantly I love that with the kidsafe line and other easy to access info I know what is safe to use around my sweet nephews. The rewards program is a pretty great bonus too.
Thank you guys for caring more about people then money. Your products are top notch and much more affordable then similar products the others guys sell.
Plant Therapy is absolutely amazing. I’ve never seen another company that cares so much about their customers and I for one am very appreciative that I found you all!
you guys are awesome in a world where so many could care less and not even be honest you guys go above and beyond caring for your family of oil lovers and i say family because that is how you make us feel keep up the good work… thanks for all the hard work you put into everything you do…..
Its been a long time since I had feelings for a company. I actually can’t recall ever really caring. You really take care of your clients and we are all appreciative of your attention to detail. Your products are amazing and your values are what all companies should strive to represent. Thank you.
I happened to stumble into PT on Amazon! The very first EO that I ever purchased was Germ Destroyer! From there I found your website and became a customer for life!! Your customer service is impeccable and the way the whole company runs is amazing!! Not to mention your FB pages (official and the ones run by awesome PT customers) provide a wealth of information and recipes that I use daily!! Thank you PT
Thank you so much!
I’m so glad I found PT. I love the quality products and especially the Kidsafe options. As a busy mom, I appreciate that you guys have taken out the guesswork for me. Thank you for your outstanding values!
This! This is why after crazy amounts of research I first purchased oils from Plant Therapy a few months ago and have become a loyal customer. Everything written in this post has been exemplified in every interaction I have had with PT. They strive for excellence, are diligent in education on the safe use of their product, and go out of their way to please their customers. Not only have I never heard them say anything negative about another company, they discourage their customers from doing it too. I am so thankful I found Plant Therapy!
Thank you so much for your comment, Shanna!
I’ve never felt so passionate about ANY company before – you really define what it means to me to be ethical, compassionate, and truly caring for your customers/fans. The groups online makes me feel like you all have created a large family of people dedicated to wellness, and in many ways it feels like a movement. Bravo! 🙂
Thank you so much!
Thank you for being you!
We as customers see this in every transaction and interaction we have with Plant Therapy! Not only in Customer Service ***WOW*** but in quality of every product I’ve personally purchased! I agree with other customer comments, trying to leave honest reviews relative to MY experience with a product, and customer service is out there trying to “Make it right”, just because it wasn’t a smell or something that was right for me personally. WITHOUT EVEN ASKING !!! What company does that? Not just the BEST company, but the company who wants to do better today than they did yesterday!!! What a wonderful motto PLANT THERAPY!!! I love it, and you do it every day!! Thank you!!
I feel that Plant Therapy customer service is so great, they could consult other companies! I wish this company years upon years of success and really do tell a lot of friends about them.
I’m totally impressed with my experience so far and am happy to recommend PT! A friend got me interested in EO via an MLM and it just wasn’t for me. plant therapy had been an awesome product as well as learning experience.
So happy to have found Plant Therapy! Switched from Young Living for not only a better value, but for the honesty and integrity of this amazing company!!
PT is the most amazing company for these reasons and so many more!
Love the values!! Love Plant Therapy!!
I try to be honest with my reviews, and in no way expected a refund after I left a bad review for a product that I personally did not like. Not saying the product was bad for everyone…it was not just for me.
I just started really getting into EO around Dec. After going to a DoTerra free rollerball event. Loved the oils…but the price….not so much. So I did a lot of research, and tried Plant Therapy, Edens Garden, and looked into Rockie Mountain (but did not try them).
You gained my loyalty with your integrity, quality, and true care for each customer. Plus, your shipping is freakishly fast!
I have made a return in the past with no issues (another reason why I stay with you).
But now, your offering me a refund without me requesting it! Wow! Your company has no bounds…
Thank you, and know that your customer service and quality of products do not go unnoticed! I’ll be telling my DoTerra friend to give you a try and she’ll see why.
Thank you so much for your kind comment, Tammy! We appreciate all of our customers and strive to make sure our customer service is top of the line 🙂
Just when I thought there couldn’t be any more reasons to love Plant Therapy, I happen upon this post. One of the most outstanding things about your company is your realization about the importance of customer service. Add in your dedication to the safe use of essential oils, product quality, product variety, affordability, and you have the perfect recipe for success.
Your customer service has been really great. I may get things you don’t offer from other companies, but I always come here first because of your customer service and ethics.
Plant Therapy is a wonderful company that lives up to all of these expectations. It is definitely a “people first” company and that is evident in their passion for promoting safe use practices, not practices that will make them the most money and by their wonderful customer service that always takes care of their customers! I also love the live videos and getting to know the employees and the take they take to get to know their customers. It’s much more than just ordering oils online when you feel like you know the people behind the oils and know that they care about you.
One of the best blog posts I’ve read!! Absolutely love Plant Therapy and everything they stand for!!!
Great company who lives up to this blog post so far! Switched from Douterra to Plant Therapy and love the service so far.
Plant Therapy are excellent with communication and customer service – they have very reasonable prices for excellent oils – I am very happy that I switched to PT from Doterra and never looked back – I highly recommend this reliable company ! Thanks PT ! paul in Israel
Love seeing the values of a company before I purchase products!
