Why is there such a huge price difference between Edens Garden essential oils and other companies?
At Edens Garden, we value honesty and transparency. Some companies use the term “Certified Pure therapeutic grade” to make consumers think they are getting a superior product when in fact they are getting the same thing (and often paying more).
Because some plants are native only to specific countries, certain oils can only be sourced and purchased from one place. This means that every reputable company selling that particular essential oil botanical is purchasing it from the same country and is undergoing the same testing.
The huge price difference is where it really gets enlightening. Each company selling therapeutic grade essential oil is generally purchasing it from the same country. Based on their company’s overhead and profit margin, they then determine a price point. Most MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) have huge margins and overhead costs. They inflate prices high enough to make sure they can afford their office buildings, take top dealers on cruises or vacations and offer lavish prizes to top sellers.
When purchasing a bottle of essential oil from Edens Garden, you are paying for the oil and a very modest profit. We are a direct company, selling entirely online. In other words, we have zero middle men. We only sell directly to the consumer and have chosen to not sell on a wholesale level. This makes it so we can pass on the savings directly to our customers. Our desire is to offer oils of the highest quality that are available and affordable for everyone.
Can Edens Garden essential oils be used internally?
We get this question quite often. Because many people use essential oils for self-medication and we are not licensed aromatherapists, we cannot recommend internal use. We do not know what medications, quantities and allergies you may have and want to be certain our customers are safe.
Our oils are labeled “for external use" for our own liability. It is very common practice in the US and many other companies that sell therapeutic grade oils to use “for external use” on labeling. Essential oils are highly concentrated and have the capacity to cause serious damage if used internally without the necessary expertise required in administering it.
Supported by the International Federation of Aromatherapists, we do not recommend ingestion of essential oils unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical aromatherapy.
That being said, many of our loyal customers use Edens Garden oils internally since they are the highest quality available, but we leave that entirely up to each customer.
Do Edens Garden essential oils have an expiration date?
Many essential oils do not have expiration dates. Essential oils like Patchouli and Sandalwood actually get better with age. However, there are always exceptions to every rule. For example, cold-pressed citrus oils such as Grapefruit, Sweet Orange, Lemon and some pine oils have a much shorter shelf life and generally run their course in about 6 months to one year. We encourage our customers to store essential oils in consistent temperatures with little light to ensure the longest life possible.
What are the dilution rates for Edens Garden essential oils?
For topical use, we suggest using 3-5% dilution rate. Each oil we offer is entirely pure and accepted to be used by naturopaths, aromatherapists and natural practitioners. We never use any harmful chemicals or additives. Be careful to note that some of our oils are more potent than others. Lavender and Tea tree oil are commonly accepted as safe for “neat” application but we recommend doing a test on a small patch of skin prior to use to rule out any sensitivity with each essential oil. For the best results, many of our customers dilute essential oils with carrier and base oils or lotions for topical application.
Are Edens Garden essential oils pregnancy safe?
We go to great lengths to ensure our oils are free of pesticides, synthetic chemicals, herbicides, gmos, harmful chemicals or natural fertilizers. Warnings against using essential oils during pregnancy are commonly referring to direct skin application. Although our products are 100% pure therapeutic grade, we recommend that you consult your physician for peace of mind.
What is an EGCO?

Is there a way to burn Edens Garden essential oils to release the aroma into the air?
Yes, we highly recommend the use of an aromatherapy diffuser. It mildly warms the oils and emits the aroma into the air creating an inviting ambiance. Our Relaxation blend is heavenly in a diffuser.
