Edens Garden Essential Oils: Everything You Need To Know

Are Edens Garden Essential Oils Safe?

Edens Garden prioritizes the safe use of essential oils and has set safety standards in the aromatherapy industry. 

Each Edens Garden essential oil product page includes detailed safety information on pregnancy, child safety, pet safety, shelf life, dilution and more. Across Edens Garden’s blog, you can also find in-depth articles on safety information for those with health conditions, cancer, epilepsy, COPD, babies and the elderly. 

They are committed to providing the most current safety information as often as possible. 

Are Edens Garden essential oils therapeutic grade?

There is no certifying body or organization that grades essential oils.[1] Rather, companies or a company’s distributors and affiliates use these terms of their own accord. 

What this means is that essential oil grades are marketing terms, much like the phrase Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) which is trademarked and therefore cannot be used by all but one essential oil company. 

With that said, Edens Garden has used the term therapeutic grade to refer to its own internal standard for its family of top-shelf products and high-quality essential oils because so many essential oil users know this term to mean that oil is of high quality. 

Who owns Edens Garden essential oils?

Edens Garden is owned by its original founder, Grace Martin. In Grace’s words:

When I founded Edens Garden, I didn't have a big investor or huge staff but my goal was to share high-quality, affordable essential oils. The medicinal and healing qualities of essential oils can beautifully transform lives, and I wanted more people to be able to experience that.

Providing affordable access to wholesome, safe and toxic-free aromatherapy options is my way of sharing my passion for nature with others. With humble gratitude, I am so proud of the values and integrity that Edens Garden holds. We don't compromise quality. We offer the best oils at accessible prices. We are transparent about our sourcing and process. We guide with education. We never take the shortcut.”

Grace has been at the helm of a tight-knit team of incredible women since Edens Garden’s inception in 2009. 

Which Edens Garden oil is like Young Living’s Thieves?

Edens Garden’s most comparable blend to Young Living’s Thieves oil is Fighting Five essential oil blend.[2] With Fighting Five, Lemon, Cinnamon Leaf, Moroccan Rosemary, Clove Bud, Eucalyptus Globulus and Eucalyptus Radiata effectively work together to boost the immune system while giving the axe to airborne threats.

GC/MS tested for purity, Fighting Five is composed of the highest quality essential oils available. It cuts off respiratory congestion before it starts, by protecting the body from infectious harm. Because of its all-natural and pure essential oil composition, Fighting Five can be used daily to protect your health.  

For over a decade, Fighting Five has steadily remained Edens Garden’s bestselling blend. 

What is the most powerful essential oil in the world?

While narrowing down the most powerful essential oil may be a matter of opinion, it can’t be denied that Lavender is the most popular and well-known essential oil in the aromatherapy industry. 

Known as “the Mother of Essential Oils,” Lavender is often researched and has been proven effective in improving sleep, skincare, anxiety, inflammation, headaches, memory and general wellness. Because of its versatility, it makes a necessary addition to one’s essential oil arsenal.

What to avoid when buying essential oils?

There are several signs to look out for when buying essential oils, including: 

  • It Contains Synthetic Fragrance Compounds: Close your eyes the next time you smell a newly opened bottle of essential oil. Does it remind you of commercial room sprays, perfumes, candles or other fragrances? If so, it may be adulterated with synthetics or it’s completely synthetic. Keep in mind, there’s no such thing as “Honeysuckle” or “Apple” essential oil and essential oils generally smell like the plants from which they’re derived.

  • The Oil Lacks Qualities Characteristic Of Its Kind: Is your Blue Tansy essential oil clear? Does your Tea Tree smell more fruity than medicinal? Is your Sandalwood oil thin and runny? Characteristics of single essential oils can vary depending on where they’re grown, but certain characteristics generally never change. If you pick up an oil that is far removed from others you’ve experienced of its kind, and the supplier has no reasonable explanation for it, avoid it.

  • You Have A Bad Reaction To It: Certain essential oils oxidize quickly and easily, like citruses for example. An oxidized oil will oftentimes have a rancid aroma and can cause skin sensitivity. If you buy a new bottle of Sweet Orange and it has an off-putting aroma, it irritates your skin despite being properly diluted or both, it could very well be oxidized. In which case, ask the supplier when the oil was produced. 

  • How It’s Labeled: It’s important to note that all essential oils have a Latin name, which is their official name. If you’re buying an essential oil that isn’t labeled with its Latin name, be aware that it might be an inferior oil. If it’s a blend, be sure to check for an ingredient list that arranges oils in order of greatest to least and includes the essential oil name and Latin name as well. 

  • They Don’t Offer GC/MS Reports For Oil Batches: You can speculate about whether an oil is of low or high quality, but at the end of the day, it’s just speculation unless the oil is tested via GC/MS. If a company doesn’t make these reports available before you buy, their oil quality is questionable. 
  • Are Edens Garden essential oils organic?

    Aromatherapist, Robert Tisserand, states that there may be no difference between organic and non-organic essential oils due to the insignificant amount of pesticides typically found in non-organic essential oils. 

    Edens Garden is not biased toward either side and appreciates that consumers are holding the natural industry to a higher standard. While at the same time, they believe that non-organic essential oils do not run the risk of containing consequential amounts of pesticides, given a GC/MS test is provided for oil batches and verifies its purity and quality. 

    How long do Edens Garden oils last?

    Practically all organic compounds have an expiration date. Essential oils have shelf lives of anywhere between two to eight years. A few oils last even longer and actually get better with age. Resinous oils like Frankincense and Patchouli, similar to fine wine, tend to mature in complexity over time. 

    So how long do Edens Garden essential oils last? It depends on the oil’s chemical composition. Citrus oils are made up of many monoterpenes – small, highly volatile molecules that react quickly to oxygen. These oils have shelf lives of around two years. Thicker oils like Sandalwood are made up of many sesquiterpenols – large molecules that are far less volatile than monoterpenes and react slowly to oxygen. These oils have longer shelf lives of around eight years.

    You can find the shelf life of your oil by visiting its product page and browsing under “Safety & Shelf Life.” The oil’s shelf life begins at the time you open your bottle. 

    Can Edens Garden essential oils be ingested?

    Edens Garden emphasizes topical use and inhalation over casual ingestion. Studies and research have proven that essential oils are quite effective when inhaled and applied topically. Aromatherapy experts have also found that there are far more safety precautions to take when ingesting essential oils, as opposed to inhaling or applying them topically. 

    While there are times when essential oils can safely and effectively be taken internally, Edens Garden suggests this be done under the counsel and advice of a certified aromatherapist.

    Is Edens Garden an MLM?

    Edens Garden essential oil brand is not an MLM. Since its inception, Edens Garden’s desire has been to offer high-quality essential oils at affordable prices, because we believe everyone deserves the healing and restorative benefits that aromatherapy provides. By adopting a direct-to-consumer business model that doesn’t have distributors or middlemen, brick-and-mortar stores or wholesale, we’ve been able to accomplish this. 

    Edens Garden offers wholesale pricing to everyone while still rewarding you on your purchases in the form of big discounts on future orders and huge sales throughout the year. 

    The Edens Garden Difference

    Since 2009, our passion for aromatherapy has led us to provide the highest quality, 100% pure essential oils at practical prices. As one of the first non-MLM aromatherapy companies to provide GC/MS tests for all of our single oils, we set standards in transparency for essential oil users that many companies have followed. And we hope to continue setting the bar as we strive for greatness, educate aromatherapy users and make pure essential oils accessible to all. We’re honored that millions of you have joined us in raising the bar and continue to join us. We couldn’t do it without you.

    Hi Jennifer! A simple room spray recipe you can follow is this–

    In a 4 oz glass spray bottle, 1 oz 190-proof grain alcohol and 40 drops essential oil. Let sit for a few hours, then top off with distilled or purified water. Shake to combine. For allergies, try our Pollen Buster or Combat Allergies blends.
