How To Get The Best Discounts On Essential Oils
In today’s economy, optimizing your budget is a must. Aromatherapy users may be especially cognizant of increased prices which have affected import fees, shipping costs and overall, essential oil prices. Is there a way that those who use essential oils for daily well-being can still manage to afford aromatherapy products without breaking the bank?
Thankfully, it can be done and we’re here to tell you how. Read on for our top money-saving tips.
Why Are Essential Oils Expensive?
Before we share our tips, let’s break down essential oil costs.
#1 FARMS & DISTILLERIES
At Edens Garden, we’ve chosen to only partner with ethical and sustainable farms and distilleries that produce top-quality crops and essential oils. And while it may be hard to wrap your head around, a lot goes into producing essential oil. From extracting the healthiest seeds and maintaining the most nutrient-rich soil to using century-old farming techniques and wisdom to sow, water, protect and harvest the best quality plants.
Not to mention, it takes an enormous amount of plant material to produce a single bottle of essential oil.
And along with costs associated with farming, such as water, fuel, energy and fertilizer come the cost of paying workers a fair living wage. Ensuring that the farms we partner with pay their workers ethically is an essential requirement for us and something that we do not and will never compromise on.
Once the oils are carefully obtained and ready to be sent over, they are then imported from dozens of countries and regions around the globe.
International imports, especially of flammable oils, have always been expensive. But as the cost of fuel has gone up, these costs have increased exponentially in recent times.
#3 TESTING & QUALITY CHECKING
Once the oils arrive at our facility, we send a sample to top essential oil chemists at Essential Oil University who GC/MS tests each oil. GC/MS tests reveal exactly what is in an essential oil sample. From there, the chemists analyze the report and look for any impurities or indicators that the oil lacks quality. They then send us these results.
Additionally, our in-house team of aromatherapists and experts examine each oil for purity and quality by analyzing the GC/MS reports and performing organoleptic, refractive index, specific gravity and optical rotation tests.
#4 BOTTLING & PACKAGING
When the oils are received and samples are drawn, they are then placed in temperature-controlled rooms before being hand-poured and bottled or used as ingredients in our aromatherapy bath salts, perfumes, room sprays and more.
Finally, and most importantly, there’s the cost of paying our employees so we can continue providing you with our high-quality essential oils and aromatherapy products. Each and every one of us works hard to ensure our products’ quality and purity, while also doing our best to provide exceptional service to our family of customers, which we believe is priceless.
How To Get The Best Discounts On Essential Oils
No, you don’t have to buy a premium starter kit or become a wholesale member to get great deals on affordable essential oils. Here’s how easy it is to save big.
It’s no secret that the best discounts occur during our sitewide sales. Our sales are so good that many people wait for them to stock up on their Edens Garden products.
We typically have at least 3 sales each year – one in January, one in the summer for our anniversary and one around the holidays. If you don’t want to miss out, follow us on social media and subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to hear sale announcements.
If you don’t want to wait for the next big sale to save, you can shop our sale section which is available 365 days a year! Our sale section often features an array of goods, from our bath salts and room sprays to our essential oils and blends.
And to keep things fresh, we often change up the inventory so be sure to check back once in a while. You just might find your favorite essential oil blend or that diffuser you’ve had your eye on is on sale.
It feels good to get paid to shop, which is why we created an essential rewards program that allows you to do just that. You can earn Aroma Notes Rewards points every time you shop Edens Garden when you simply sign up. There’s no fee and you don’t have to be a wellness advocate to join.
How does it work? $1 USD equals one Aroma Note, which accrues and converts to discounts towards purchases. What’s more, you can level up your rewards by saving 5,000 Aroma Notes, at which point, you’ll earn two Aroma Notes for every $1 spent. The goodness doesn’t stop there! You can also earn points for referring friends, following us on social media and on your birthday. Need we say more?
Buy In Bulk
We don’t offer wholesale, but if you use a lot of our most popular oils and products, you can save by purchasing our bulk-sized products. Now you never have to run out of oils like Bergamot, Fighting Five, Peppermint, Lavender, Good Night, Tea Tree and Fractionated Coconut carrier oil again. We even offer our best selling bath salts in bulk now.
However, if buying bulk sizes aren’t an option for you, you can still get a price break by purchasing larger sizes because each size up from 5 ml includes a discount.
Ready, Set, Shop!
Our last and perhaps most underrated tip is to shop our sets! With sets, you can save between 15 - 20% off the cost of our essential oils and blends, so you can get the oils you love without compromising on cost.
Enjoy the relaxing aromas of our Sleep set, the revitalizing zest of Energy & Focus and much, much more. Each set is as varied as they are beneficial, meaning there’s something in store for everyone.
We know that pure essential oil can be costly, which is why we try to provide everyday discounts and great sales throughout the year. Our hope is to provide the best essential oils that everyone can afford so that you never have to compromise cost over quality. Because we believe that everyone deserves the powerful and natural wellness benefits that essential oils can offer.
