Wow this newbie says "THANK YOU"!
I'd like to paste this in your sig line or or better yet, into the left hand box below the "Like" info.
Paintguru if you see this, I definitely would paste info into the document if you or another person wants to research the prices from another company.
I started out buying from Camden-Grey and everything was fine for awhile. Then I got a bottle of palmarosa that didn't smell anything like my old bottle from them so I tried to call them. Their message said something like "for quicker service email us" but I left a message and figured I'd wait. It's been about 4 years now so I'm not impressed with their customer service. Then I read some real nightmare stories regarding their customer service, and yes, sometimes stories are made up, but some of the stories are from people on this site. So I don't use them anymore. Like I said, I'll post the prices if they are researched, but I just wanted to warn you and anyone else that they are a company where quite a few people have had bad experiences. Oh, and they get an F from the BBB!
Ok. I've got to ask, but did any particular company stick out for offering best pricing?
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! This is well organized and a great time saver for the rest of us!
Much thanks to you!:smile:
Thanks for this information. I just joined this Forum and i hope to learn alot here.
Most of the EO are said to be avoided during pregnancy. My question is do they have any effect on preganacy when used in soap? At what state are they harmful?
I didn't answer your question when you first posted since I'm not an expert with EOs. I thought someone else might answer and then forgot to check to see if you got a reply. Since I don't know the answers, I searched to see if I could find informative sites.
My first thought was to ask if you could find an aromatherapist to talk with since she (or he) would have have more in-depth info than what might be found online.
That being said, I searched for some sites which would be educational.
Aromaweb is my go-to site when I feeling lazy and don't want to get out my books. I think it's a wonderful site. http://www.aromaweb.com/articles/aromatherapyduringpregnancy.asp
I thought the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy site was very good and you might find it answers all your questions. http://www.naha.org/explore-aromatherapy/safety/
The sites below list EOs to avoid but I did notice some contradictions. The UK site stated black pepper was safe while the ZA site stated not to use it since it was a skin sensitizer. There may also be more differences.
Thanks Hazel for taking out time to reply. I'll take a look at the sites you listed. I guess it might be pretty difficult getting an aromatherapist.
You're welcome! :grin:
Do you have any spas where you live? They might have an aromatherapist.
Best prices on pure essential oils
For ~link deleted~ the absolute cheapest price I found was ~deleted~. They have free shipping and the products are very high quality. I have tried other companies that were considerably more expensive and some of the oils from the other companies don't seem nearly as good. The only thing I wish was that they would sell their oils in larger quantities as the largest size they have to offer is 30ml. I prefer to buy my oils a pound at a time typically if I like them after I try them. I also like New Direction Aromatics but there prices for the items I purchase are a lot more expensive there but they also have high quality oils. I also like that they have an established review system as I can't tell the quality of the essential oils over the internet so I have to go off the reviews of people who have used them in the past. ~deleted~ doesn't have a review system, or rather it looks like they just recently implemented one so I can't make decisions based off that but they do offer a 30 day money back guarantee so if I don't like an oil I can return it and they pay for shipping as well.
Thanks for reporting your experience. Their prices seemed high to me but if you're satisfied with the quality, then the price is right!
