Essential oils have been used for nearly 6000 years, but now there are so many brands and companies. How does one choose? Research, research and more research. I have used Young Living, Doterra, Rocky Mountain, and Eden Garden. Nothing tops Neals Yard Remedies oil.

During my research I saw that most companies use terms for their oils such as “pure” “therapeutic” and “food grade”, which took me by surprise because upon further research I found out that there are not any classifications or regulations on that in the world. The only regulation on essential oils is Organic vs Non Organic. I am not here to bash any company, I just want you to know why I chose Neal’s.

Neal’s oils are organic. Being labeled as soil association certified organic ensures that they are non GMO and pesticide free. NOTHING TOPS ORGANIC

Neal’s does not promote ingestion for safety reasons. We advise any ingestion be under the care under a licensed aromatherapist instead of under the advice of a sales rep.

Telling someone to add oils to water is basically like giving medical advice without a medical degree. That worries me, as most essential oils are antibacterial, antiviral, and anti fungal and investing those could seriously damage not only your microbiome, but your mucus membranes.

You may tell me that your oils are “food grade oils”, and my response to that is that vitality lines are no different then regular lines,, just a different label. I don’t feel it’s safe usage in my opinion.

Neals oils time and time and time again have been awarded 100/100 in ethics by a third party company. Our oils are unadulterated. We are a cruelty free, fair trade company. We work with tribes and farmers across the world to grow our soil association certified organic products. We hand harvest all our ingredients and leave some behind for the animals. Our oils are affordable and we have the first certified organic frankincense essential oil.


Dr. Zhang and his team had previously found some “highly active essential oils” that were effective against “biofilm and stationary phase B. burgdorferi.” (Lyme Disease)

In this new study, the researchers screened another 35 essential oils for their antibacterial properties. Using pressed essential oils from plants or their fruits, the researchers tested the activity of the plants’ fragrant “essence.”

Lab-dish tests revealed that ten of these 35 plants have “strong activity” against the latent, “persister” forms of Lyme disease. These essential oils derived from garlic cloves, myrrh trees, thyme leaves, cinnamon bark, allspice berries, cumin seeds, and eucalyptus, and thyme. Check out many of these scents here
