New Oils Added to Our Lineup: Rhododendron, Organic Blood Orange & More!

Did someone say new oils!? That’s right! We’re adding not one, not two, but eight new oils to our lineup. Both Rhododendron and Organic Blood Orange are completely new additions. The other six essential oil singles and blends are previous Oil of the Month selections that are back for good! So whether it’s time to try something completely new or stock up on an old favorite, we’ve got you covered. Now it’s time to discover what makes each of these new additions so special.




Rhododendron essential oil comes from the exotic hills of Nepal. Steam distilled from the leaves, twigs, and flowers of the plant, you’re left with a delicate floral aroma that slightly balsamic with herbaceous undertones. The incredible, soothing aroma can help give you emotional support when you need it most. But the benefits don’t end there! Rhododendron can also help provide mental clarity when you’re dealing with times of grief and sadness. It’s also an incredibly essential oil to have next time seasonal allergies hit as it helps support a healthy respiratory system. 

The delicate, pleasant aroma also makes Rhododendron an ideal choice for use in perfume, haircare and skincare DIYs!

Organic Blood Orange

Organic Blood Orange Essential Oil

Blood Orange is a staple for any essential oil enthusiast. It’s well known for its intense juicy-fresh, zesty, citrus scent. This incredible uplifting and stimulating oil can help ease nervous tension and promote a happy mood. So while Blood Orange is definitely not new on the essential oil scene, our Certified Organic version sure is!

When you buy one of our organic oils, you can trust that there are no Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) used in the entire production process. Also, the soil where the plants grow must be completely clean of any prohibited substances and must have been clean for the past three years. There is also no use of harmful pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. If you’d like to learn more about the organic process, check out this in-depth look at our organic oils.

Bergamot Mint

Plant Therapy Oil of the Month Selections

Although Bergamot Mint, Mentha citrata,  is technically from the mint family, it has a unique light citrusy, fruity aroma with a hint of mint that is reminiscent of Lavender. The main constituents are Linalool and Linalyl Acetate, both of which are well-known for their incredible uplifting and calming properties. The chemical makeup of Bergamot Mint crosses between Lavender and Bergamot, with just a hint of mint. It is safer than other mint oils and due to its high Linalool content. You’ll find it is calming, yet not sedating, and can carry you away from every day worries.

This amazing oil has so many other incredible benefits. It supports healthy emotional balance, calms the mind, and helps renew the spirit. Bergamot Mint is also helpful with body discomfort and occasional digestive upset. Add a few drops to your diffuser to enjoy the refreshing, clean scent and immune support benefits.

Fantastic Franks

Fantastic Franks Essential Oil blend Plant Therapy

An Oil of the Month favorite, Fantastic Franks is back for good! It perfectly blends four varieties of Frankincense: Carterii, Frereana, Papyrifera, and Sacra. Aptly dubbed the King of Oils, Frankincense has a rich history in Egyptian, Babylonian, Assyrian, and Christian traditions. Fantastic Franks, with the union of four amazing Frankincense oils, has a fresh, clean, warm, spicy aroma.

This incredible blend can help ease emotions and promote feelings of peace. When used topically, Fantastic Franks can encourage skin rejuvenation, support the immune system, and help soothe muscle and joint soreness. It’s sure to become a new favorite!

Chocolate Truffle

This oil is so delicious smelling, you might be tempted to eat it! Even though that wouldn’t be a great idea, Chocolate Truffle is the perfect blend of Vanilla Extract and Cocoa Absolute. The result is a rich, decadent chocolate aroma that is undeniably uplifting and delightful.

To make a wonderfully smelling ChocoLatte diffuser blend, add 3 drops of Chocolate Truffle, 3 drops of Coffee Essential Oil, and 1-2 drops of Cinnamon Bark and enjoy the rich and spicy latte aroma.

Lavender Flower CO2

Calling all Lavender fans! We have another amazing Lavender oil to add to your collection. Unlike our steam-distilled options, this oil is extracted using a different method. With a CO2 extract, Carbon Dioxide is pressurized until it’s a liquid. It is then used as the solvent to remove the oil from the plant material.  The result is a beautiful essential oil where the smell is closer to the actual plant.

Lavender Flower CO2’s aroma is richer and closer to the true plant, retaining more of its beneficial properties. It also has a longer shelf life, lasting up to 5 years! This highly aromatic Lavender can have a profound effect on your mental well-being, leaving you relaxed, calm, and refreshed. In addition to being superb for skin rejuvenation and integrity, it is also emotionally supportive and provides clarity.

Magnolia Flower

Magnolia Flower is a rare essential oil that a rich history in traditional Chinese Medicine. Our oil is sourced from China from the flowers of the Magnolia Tree that are harvested at night when their aroma is most potent. Magnolia Flower has a sweet, fruity and exotic scent that is both relaxing and uplifting. It has the added benefit of helping to relax both the mind and body. In addition, it’s great for helping heal minor abrasions and scrapes. If it’s that time of the month, it can also help provide some much-needed relief from menstrual cramps.

Moldavian Dragonhead

And the final oil that is making its way into our permanent lineup is Moldavian Dragonhead! It has a distinctive fresh, spicy lemon scent that is similar to Melissa, but it has a more unique chemical makeup. Additionally, it has a low yield making it more costly than other oils. But don’t worry, it is well worth the investment. Moldavian Dragonhead’s many benefits include helping to reduce digestive upset, boosting the immune system, fighting against seasonal threats, and relieving symptoms of restlessness.

  • For the ChocoLatte diffuser blend – would we be able to make that into a lotion? My mom had that in the diffuser and she loves it!

      1. Great, thank you! Could you help me out with the drops for each oil since Cinnamon has the 0.1% maximum dilution? I want to make sure I do it correctly so my mom doesn’t get a reaction to it. Thank you again!

        1. Hi Jessica, Cinnamon Bark is definitely a more tricky one and we still recommend using caution as it can cause irritation. To get a 0.1% dilution, you’ll want to use one drop in a little over 30mL of carrier oil. We have a detailed post with a handy dilution chart to help you out. You can always reach out to our team of aromatherapists at [email protected] to help you out with your specific concerns.

  • For the ChocoLatte diffuser blend – would we be able to make that into a lotion? My mom had that in the diffuser and she loves it!

  • Fantastic Franks is my favorite (so far) of the OOTM!! I’m glad to see it is coming back for good. Now I don’t have to use it as sparingly!! Thank you, PT!

  • This announcement made me very happy. I love magnolia, but have never tried the EO. Fantastic Franks sounds like a smart idea. And, well, chocolate truffle just makes me smile before even smelling it.

  • Thank you PT! I already got rhododendron and magnolia and both are amazing! Putting franks and the new lavender on my wish list.

  • I ordered the Chocolate Truffle for my mom and myself and it got delivered yesterday! It smells so good! I can’t wait to try it! Thanks so much!!

  • I have fantastic franks which I love I’m excited that’s now in the lineup so hopefully I can now stock up on now

  • I’ve been dying to get Rhododendron & LOVE Fantastic Franks & Moldavian Dragonhead. I’m not a huge Lavender fan but I’m really tempted to try the CO2 version!
    The Chocolate Truffle is just ok for me…. I probably just haven’t found the right use for it.

  • Can’t wait to get my hands on dragonhead! and Fantastic Franks is one of your guys’s best blends! Is there any chance Pink Berries CO2 will be coming back?!?! I missed out on that one and would love to try it!

  • So excited to have all of these back! I can stop hoarding all my previous OOTMs! This blend from PT is also probably one of my favorites: Summertime Lemonade– 2 drops Moldavian Dragonhead Dracocephalum moldavica, 2 drops Bergamot Mint Mentha citrata, 1 drop Lavender Flower CO2 Lavandula angustifolia

  • Looks like some amazing new oils/extracts sure to be valuable additions to an Essential Oils Collection. So nice to see interesting non-mainstream oils added to your already extensive lineup. The ‘Franks’ will be great for anyone having a hard time deciding which one to get, this is the perfect answer! Will you be selling these in 5 or 10 ml sets by any chance? A 2.5 ml ‘Sampler’ Set (or sets) would also be nice for trying them out without breaking the bank as so many of them are pricier oils. (Too bad they weren’t launched during July’s Customer Appreciation Month Sales!) Guess I’ll have to wait until Labor Day? Question too, can the Bergamot Mint effectively replace Peppermint in an Ant Repellent Spray Recipe? Sounds like it would smell a whole lot better than the overwhelming punch in the face you get with Peppermint! Hope you continue to add more unique & unusual oils on a regular basis. Thanks.

    1. Glad you’re excited about the new oils! And it’s good to know there’s interest for a set. As for an ant repellent, Peppermint is still going to be your best choice.

  • Wah! Fantastic Franks is my favourite oil… I mix it in my skincare. When i realise I left half bottle. I start use carefully. Now it become permanent oil…. I am so happy

  • Yes! So excited to have Bergamot mint back! I am down to my last drops, and looked for it to reorder a couple weeks back. I was so disappointed that they no longer carried it. Now I am stocking up! The best for relaxing and perfume!!

  • Wow, so many of my ootm faves are now regulars! Thank you, PT for making these available to us. I get so much use out of my Moldavian Dragonhead, Lavender Flower CO2, and Fantastic Franks. Cannot wait to try Rhododendron. 🙂
