If you’ve been following me here at HSITK for the past few years, then you know my love/hate relationship with Essential Oil companies. I’ve tried my best to be honest with you about my transition away from promoting essential oils on my blog.
HOWEVER, as an essential oils consumer myself, I needed to find an essential oil company that I feel honestly good about supporting for my own purchases.. and I use A LOT of oils.
I have literally received 100’s of emails asking me what company/brand I use recommend, since my Why I’m No Longer Selling Essential Oils post. It’s taken me well over a year of researching and soul-searching as to how I can share my own personal EO experiences, while giving you my own best recommendation for a source for high qualtiy oils. And, being honest if I was really torn if I even wanted to share my EO experiences at all.
But since you asked for my recommendation and so many of you have reached out looking for my suggestions, I’m sharing the 5 Reasons I Switched to Rocky Mountain Oils with you today.
First of all, I want to be abundantly clear that I have NO ISSUE with MLM businesses and have used both of the big 2 brands previously. Background: I separated myself from one of the companies for business related reasons and the other company their oils just didn’t work for me, specifically their aroma was barely noticeable when compared to other high quality oils and they were too expensive or my budget.
If you have found a brand of oils you’re 100% happy with, that’s AWESOME! However, if you haven’t found your perfect fit, I encourage you to try Rocky Mountain Oils.
5 Reasons Why I Switched to Rocky Mountain Oils
Without doubt, the most important factor when choosing an essential oil brand/company is the quality of their oils. Rocky Mountain Oils, founded in 2004, is a leading non-MLM purveyor of 100% pure, natural and authentic essential oils, expertly crafted blends and nutritional products.
Their mission is to improve the quality of life for each customer by delivering only the best premium essential oils and proprietary blends on the market, which is rooted in their S.A.A.F.E. Promise.
All of their oils are 100% pure, are tested for purity and potency by a third party lab, and are free of synthetics and fillers.
They also stand behind the purity of their product and offer free online access to batch specific GC/MS test results. Simply enter your batch number found on the bottom of the bottle.
If you’re wanting to see results for an oil you’re considering and don’t already have, you can call and they will give you the appropriate batch number.
RMO offers competitive and affordable pricing. Their products are priced at a reasonable price (even below the MLM companies’ wholesale pricing and there’s no required monthly auto-ship policies) yet not so low that it’s too good to be true.
They also offer some options for cost-prohibitive oils that are pre-blended in order to make them affordable and available to average budgets. For example you can purchase Blend of Rose for just $28 so that you can have the benefits of rose without the $250+ price tag for pure rose essential oil. I appreciate that they offer that option for some of the higher priced oils.
#3. Product Selection
One thing you’ll notice when shopping Rocky Mountain Oils is that while they offer a wide variety of essential oil singles, essential oil blends, diffusers, carrier oils and a few relevant accessories – that’s where their product selection ends. They aren’t selling you shampoo, deodorant and cleaning supplies, they are experts on essential oils and stick to just those.
So, while an extensive product offering like may seem like a perk, for me I don’t want my EO company focusing on too many extra. I’ve had enough of the jack-of-all-trades, master of none companies, you too?
#4. Education & Safety
Rocky Mountain Oils is committed to education. They don’t just want to sell you oils, they want to help you learn how to use them safely. To that end, they have an extensive help center, a blog dedicated to offering usage suggestions and more, plus a Getting Started Guide to help you start off on the right foot.
Personally, I really love that they give you functional usage suggestions on their website, where most other companies shy away. It’s a great time saver, for both beginners and EO experienced folks like me. Want to get some oils to help with sleep? No Problem! They’ve already put together a sleep category for you and you can further narrow your options by their Top Picks, Rest or Relaxation.
And each bottle has cute little icons showing you how to best use the oil in the bottle!
These amazing pre-blended roller balls that RMO has just released have been a life saver for me while baby sitting my niece, Jocelyn. With Rocky Mountain Oils’ Kids Line, they take all the research and mixing out of using EOs on little ones. You know that the dilution is prefect and each bottle tells you what it’s best used for!
Still have questions? They have amazing customer service and their contact info is easy to find. They have team members who are ready and willing to answer any questions you may have via email or phone.
#5. Customer Service
While most often when people think about customer service they only focus on how well a company responds to issues and complaints (which RMO is exceptional at) BUT customer service starts well before issues arise.
I was shocked to see how many customer perks that RMO offers to all of their customers. Not just the ones selling their products or placing large orders, every customer gets the same treatment.
- 90-day money back return policy – RMO stands behind their products and want to be sure you are 100% happy with your purchase. There no risk with their 90 day money back return policy.
- Free Shipping – I hate paying for shipping and I no longer have to, and neither do you.
- Pre-Stickered Bottles – Being honest with you, this is probably my favorite part of RMO. I’m an organized person and having each oil bottle come with identifying labels on the cap is amazing, am I the only one?
- Oil’ty Rewards Program – You earn points with each purchase to use towards future products. I love free stuff and know most of you do too.
- No Auto-Ship or Membership Fees – I still get emails from both MLM companies about my failed auto ship every month, it’s ridiculous how much money I wasted previously trying to maintain my monthly minimums so that I can retain my discount with them. There’s none of that nonsense with RMO. You only buy why you need when you need it, but still get treated like family.
- Affiliate Program – RMO shows their appreciation to those who help share their oils with their friends, family and colleagues. You can apply for their referral program HERE.
Other than RMO coming to your house and filling your diffuser for you, their customer service can’t get any better!
