The Top 10 MLM Essential Oil Companies

Today, we will review the top 10 MLM Essential Oil Companies…

In ancient days, people believed that we could remove the spirit from a plant by distilling and evaporating. What would result is an oil that was believed to have medicinal benefits.

These were called essential oils and would be heated slightly to emit a wonderful fragrance. Some people would use these oils on their body parts claiming healing properties.

There are those in today’s era who will claim that the process of “removing the spirit” from plants is just hocus-pocus, but many other people have found the ancients had it right.

No matter how you debate this subject, you will have to admit that essential oils do leave delightful fragrances, and even if you don’t believe in the healing properties, you will still like the odor they will leave in your abode.

There are many multilevel marketing companies who have found great success in marketing and selling essential oils. Some of these companies have essential oils as their primary product while other companies have added an essential oil line with their other products.

In today’s post, I have done some heavy research to list the top 10 MLM Essential Oil Companies.

I will tell you about these companies and the essential oils they sell. I will also provide a link to the company website in case you would like to purchase any of their essential oils or become an independent distributor.

As a quick disclaimer, I am not affiliated with any of these MLM Essential Oil Companies. This information is provided for educational purposes and is not meant to push any certain MLM Company.

Before I share the top 10 MLM Essential Oil Companies, I need to tell you that no one should ever tell you that these oils can treat or cure any diseases or sicknesses.

There has been a rash of individuals claiming such things to gain sales only to get the MLM Company in hot water. But, there are plenty of other great uses for essential oils.

Facts About Essential Oils

What I’d like to do is take a few minutes and share some interesting facts about essential oils, just to educate you.

Fact #1: How The Oil Is Extracted

There are various methods used to extract the oil from plants to be used. It depends on the plant on what method is used. Methods consist of:

  • Steam distillation
  • Cold pressing
  • Expression (the use of a ram press)
  • Resin tapping
  • Solvent extraction
  • Etc…

Fact #2: Ancient Uses

Essential oils have been used for years upon years. Egyptians were known to use them on a regular basis. The earliest recorded mention is when Ibn al-Baytar, a pharmacist in Muslim Spain used them in the 1200’s.

Fact #3: No Patents

Many people question why essential oils have not been used in medicines. The fact of the matter is, nobody can put a patent on any essential oil. Since they are produced from nature, they cannot be patented.

  • and Peppermint

Essential oils are used in a variety of ways:

  • Air diffusion
  • Skin application
  • Add to bath
  • and even put in foods and drinks

Fact #6: Fragrance Oils Are Not Essential Oils

If the bottle reads natural fragrance oil, it is not essential oil. Fragrance oil is synthetically made and does not come naturally from plants.

Fact #7: Pesticide Residues Found In Some

Because of the widespread use of pesticides, some non-organic essential oils have tested positive for pesticide residues. It is recommended to purchase USDA certified organic essential oils.

Fact #8: It Takes A Lot To Make A Little

It takes a huge amount of each plant to make essential oil.

  • 150 pounds of lavender flowers to make one pound of lavender oil
  • 250 pounds of peppermint leaves for one pound of peppermint oil
  • 4,000 pounds of rose to make one pound of rose oil

Fact #9: Shelf Life

Essential oils are sold in dark glass containers. The dark glass allows them to stay potent for longer periods of time. Essential oils can have a shelf life of two to five years depending on the type of oil, as long as it is in a dark glass container.

Fact #10: Essential Oils In The Bible

There are multiple instances where essential oils are mentioned in the Holy Bible. Oils mentioned include:

  • Myrrh
  • Spikenard
  • Cinnamon
  • Olive
  • Calamus
  • and Cassia

Fact #11: Essential Oils Are Not Really Oils

The reason essential oils are not truly oil is because they do not contain fatty acids that would constitute them being a true oil.

One person defines essential oils instead the soul of a plant.

A lot of the essential oils made are quite high in antibacterial properties. Some of the highest are:

  • Lemon
  • Grapefruit
  • Rosemary

A study war performed by Dr. Alan Hirsch and showed that people who breathed in peppermint essential oil during the day, consumed over 20% fewer calories.

Fact #15: Keep Out Of Reach Of Children

Some essential oils can be quite toxic to children. They should be kept out of children’s reach and should not be used undiluted on children. I recommend consulting a physician before using on children at all.

Fact #16: Deodorant

Many people have found that just adding one or two drops of their favorite essential oil to coconut oil makes an excellent deodorant.

Fact #17: No Refrigeration

You should not refrigerate essential oils. It is best to store them in a dark and cool place.

Fact #18: Aromatherapy Claims

In researching various Aromatherapy practitioners, I a majority agree that these essential oils help the area listed:

  • Lime for the mind
  • Sweet marjoram for muscles
  • Jasmine for the heart
  • Balsam fir for relaxation
  • Bitter orange for depression
  • Black pepper for digestion

One thought on “The Top 10 MLM Essential Oil Companies

  1. I was just curious if Purify was one of the companies that were looked at before picking your top 10? She only offers USDA certified organic and wildcrafted essential oils, which are also used in her blends and small skincare line.
