Which Essential Oil Brand is Best – Find Your Favourite

Many people are learning about the benefits of using Essential Oils. They are a very versatile product that can promote your health via topical application, ingesting, infusing and have some fantastic cleaning properties.

They are a healthy natural alternative to chemical products produced by the pharmaceutical companies. As Dr. Axe would say; “food is medicine”.

In this article on the ‘Which Essential Oil Brand is Best’, I will provide you with a breakdown of my favorite oil brands. I will introduce the company and before highlighting the pros and cons of the product.

If you would like to see how much the product is selling online, please just click on the product title where a new page will open with this information.

You might have already read my article ‘Go Green Cleaning Supplies’. If not, then you can read it here.



Spark Naturals

This company carries a range of products and aim to improve the wellness and health of their customers.

Their values include customer satisfaction, promoting the use of pure and natural essential oils, high-quality research and quality products for good value.



  • High-quality products Affordable prices
  • The majority of their oils are 100% pure grade. Pure is the highest quality of essential oils on the market

  • The company offers a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee

  • I couldn’t find anything on their website suggesting that they do not test on animals. This doesn’t necessarily mean that they do, I was just surprised that they didn’t mention this.
  • Nor could I find information about where the product is produced. I assume they are made in the USA but could be wrong.



Organic Aromas


Company Overview

They strive to produce the world’s best method for diffusing pure, organic essential oils. They are passionate about sharing knowledge on safe practices in regard to the use of essential oils too.



  • An in-depth source of information on essential oil safety. Not many other websites in the industry offer this information. I presume they do not want to make people who are new to the idea of using essential oils feel uneasy. Sharing this knowledge shouldn’t be viewed from a negative perspective because safety is really important.
  • High-quality products including a range of oils, diffusers, oil blends and accessories
  • The majority of their oils are 100% pure grade. Pure is the highest quality of essential oils on the market
  • The website offers a handful of educational blogs



  • Lack of information available about practices on animals
  • A slightly more expensive and smaller range of products. However, if you are looking to just buy oils and diffusers, this is probably the place for you.

Vida Essentials


Company Overview

This is a company that produces oils. They’re passionate about finding the highest quality produce to create their oils in terms of purity and sustainability. They research their farmers and their farming methods in regard to their impact on the environment.

Their co-founder originally worked for a pharmaceutical company. They got fed up witnessing mild medical issues being treated with chemicals, that could easily be treated with natural alternatives.

This inspired them to start their journey of research and lead them to start the company.



  • Their essential oils are USDA certified organic
  • They sell a wide range of products including oils, oil blends, oil sets, oil diffusers, oil bead bracelets, weight loss detox, supplements, and accessories
  • Their website has a ‘recipes’ section contains information on making your own shampoos and cleaning products
  • Their website also has a ‘News’ section with current information in the field such as pet safety etc.
  • Free shipping on orders over $99
  • Sign up to emails to get $5 off your first order



  • Individual oils are expensive. However, so are all organic oils.
  • They are likely to still be cheaper than paying for prescriptions and are safer for regular use when used respectfully.



Shiny Leaf


Company Overview

Essential oil brand that aims to improve the lives of others and inspire you to do so. They believe that their products will help you achieve the best version of yourself.

They take pride in helping you to look good and love yourself. The company promises quality products that are luxurious and delightful.


  • Products are made here in the USA
  • no animal testing and therefore they can be regarded as cruelty-free
  • Huge selection of products including oils, shampoos, conditioners, sets (e.g. shower sets, oil sets)
  • The website contains various guidebooks on bath and body, essential oils for different uses, hair care guides and skincare guides
  • Sign up to emails to get 15% off your first order
  • Competitive prices on some of their organic essential oils


  • I could not find anything on their site that suggests they use pure essential oils. Pure oils are the highest quality and I will only buy pure essential oils.
  • Many of their products are organic but not all of them.




Company Overview

This company specializes in cosmetic skincare products that have the intention of cleansing and improving skin by using natural ingredients.


  • Products are parabens free
  • They are a cruelty-free company (no animal testing)

  • A small range of products, however, the quality of these products is above average and this makes up for the small range in my opinion.




There is a wide selection of companies producing and selling high-quality essential oils. Some of these sell 100% pure essential oils and I would always recommend this range. Some companies offer a range of other related products too.

  1. I’m all for quality products at an affordable price such as spark naturals! But to me, products need to be organic as well so I would rather choose vida essentials because they are Usda certified organic.

      I personally prefer the organic options too. It all comes down to your personal preference. I just hope that I provided enough information on here to help people make that decision. All the best and thank you for reading.

    Essential oils are really amazing, I’ve definitely had my skin troubles and have pretty much narrowed it down to dietary related issues but definitely keen to try some of the essential oils you’ve suggested and I’ll report back.
