Where to Buy Essential Oil Supplies

Confused about where to buy empty rollers and bottles for your essential oils? Here's some of my favorite places to buy essential oil supplies and accessories.

Shop Locally for Essential Oil Accessories

Where would Mr. Hooper be if Big Bird never set foot in his store?

The growing popularity of essential oils has led big and small natural health stores to add commonly purchased EO accessories to their stock. Online pricing and selection is consistently better than local prices around here, but sometimes having a carrier oil or diffuser right away is worth a few extra bucks. Some small businesses offer discount alerts or coupons through e-newsletters and Facebook groups, and they run sales, too. Don't assume about pricing!



 
This diffuser made some buzz on Facebook as an Amazon "discovery", 
but at the time the local mom & pop price was the same. 

Suggest that your local store carry certain items. When I realized how many people in my town were taking their dollars to the Internet for popular items, I made a list of suggestions for our small mom and pop alternative health store. Where to buy and what's sold locally is a common question, so Business Builders should stay aware of local resources.

I tend to order the most from AromaTools.com.  In addition to a huge selection of the most common EO accessories, they also sell empty containers for everything from home made lip balm to deodorant.

Beverage Recipes Using Lime Essential Oil

The Right Way to Share doTerra


How you describe your experiences with doTerra Essential Oils and products matters! It is important that you share responsibly whether you are having a casual conversation or trying to build a business. This 15 minute training session explains what you can and cannot say when sharing the benefits of doTerra CPTG products.

doTerra Claims: Do's & Don'ts is a training video that was recently released by doTerra corporate.  It is critical that anybody interested in doTerra watch it!

doTerra Essential Oils are nutritional supplements. Nutritional supplements are wellness products that can benefit overall health. Essential oils can not diagnose, treat, or cure - and neither can doTerra IPC's.



It's easy to cross the line and talk about treating when sharing the wellness potential of doTerra.  But crossing that line takes you into the world of medical drug claims. Some well loved nutritional supplements have been pulled off the shelf by the Food and Drug Administration because of overly enthusiastic descriptions.


This training video helps you to understand the difference between nutritional supplements and medical drugs while providing examples of appropriate and inappropriate ways to talk about doTerra.

Remember, when you are sharing in a private conversation, online, or in a class:

  • Do use the same descriptions that doTerra uses in their training materials.
  • Don't talk about treating or curing.
  • Do use words like "strengthen" "benefit" "maintain" or "support." 
  • Don't attempt to diagnose or claim that doTerra products can help a specific diagnosis. 
  • Do talk about our products' possible benefits to how the body functions (e.g. sleep, focus, energy).
  • Don't say our products should replace prescription medications or over the counter drugs.
  • Do support others in their choice to use natural health and wellness products, combine natural and conventional treatments, or ease into natural product use.
When in doubt, contact your EO Family Mentor, use the confidential contact form in the margin to email me, or leave a comment below. doTerra legal department is also willing to answer your questions about how to responsibly share doTerra. Email them at compliance@doterra.com

And, as always, share if you learn something new or exciting!
