Why you shouldn’t buy essential oils on Amazon or eBay


I’ve had a lot of people ask me lately why prices on Amazon and eBay are so much cheaper than buying them at the wholesale price. Remember that saying “You get what you pay for”? It applies here. What we have found is that because essential oils are so popular that people are stealing other people’s credit cards, buying the oils from a reputable source at the wholesale price, opening and diluting them (and who knows what else), putting a new cap on, and then selling them for cheap. There are a lot of people who have had horrible experiences when they got their oils from Amazon or eBay. Here are just a few examples:

They leaked out because the top wasn’t on right.

My friend bought an oil…and hers smells like alcohol.

Do not purchase this product as it is not authentic. I have purchased original products and this one does not compare. This product is watered down. The fragrance of the oil is very weak.

At this time Amazon has refused to get involved. This has happened with several other health food related items as well. 

The key to essential oils is Quality. Not all essential oils are created equally. In fact, most of them are not beneficial to you and are often synthetic. When buying essential oils make sure they are absolutely pure. If you want to order the brand I trust and personally use, email oils@modern-wellness.com to order or learn where to buy them.
