What is Aromatherapy?
If you’re here, you’re likely interested in the term ‘aromatherapy’; a holistic approach that uses natural plants (herb, flower, stem, seed and tree) extracts to promote health and well-being. When the scents of essential oils are inhaled, they travel from your olfactory nerves (your smell receptors) directly to your brain (particularly the amygdala connected to feeling emotion). The art and science of aromatherapy has been around for centuries and there really is something to it!
What is AROOMATHERAPY™?
The extra ‘O’ is not a typo. AROOMATHERAPY was developed specifically for college life; to create sanctuaries, comfortable spaces and to flow with our ever-ranging moods and vibes.
Is AROOMATHERAPY an MLM Company?
MLM (aka Multi-Level Marketing) is a pyramid business structure which some essential oil companies utilize. We are not one of them.
Our intention is to spread our love of our high quality essential oils while planting the seeds for college students to be in tune to to their mind, body and spirit. It is our hope that integrating essential oils and mindfulness is a benefit and resource in navigating all the highs and lows of life’s experiences. Making the world a better place one balancing act at a time.

Are All AROOMATHERAPY™ Products Natural?
All of our essential oils are 100% pure and natural therapeutic-quality. Essential oils are derived from several techniques that include but are not limited to cold-pressing, steam distillation and enfleurage. We are very mindful when it comes to sourcing our ingredients and we use both organic & non-organic essential oils that are grown without the use of any synthetics.
Do You Test On Animals?
That’s a definitive NO.
Is AROOMATHERAPY™ Gender-Specific?
All of our products are unisex. Depending on your preferences, some lean toward floral while others are on the spicy end of the spectrum. We list each essential oil that is infused into our respective blends along with some descriptive scent terms to help you decide which ones are right for you. We do offer some products that are spicy and earthy and those are listed under our ‘Guys’ category yet have an all-inclusive gender following. It’s all personal preference.
Where Should I Start If I’m New to Essential Oils?
It’s really about choosing a vibe as a starting point. Do you want a blend that encourages chilling out or one that is more about sunshine and positivity? Sometimes, for many, we want both and everything in between, depending on the day or life circumstance. Our kits are a great way to experience our collection of aromatherapy products.
What’s An Intention Spray?
Intention Sprays are not just for yoga peeps and old-school hippies. They are, in fact, a great way to get centered, stay focused and ‘on track’. They are used as sort of a mini-ritual to pause and take a moment to consciously manifest a feeling or goal (big or small). Plus, they smell pretty darn good. Most people carry them throughout the day to spray periodically to retain their intention or simply as a subtle yet sometimes ‘addictive’ aromatic spray. Regardless of how you use them, they serve to pause, take a moment to breathe and literally, set an intention.
Can I Use My Intention Sprays in A Diffuser?
No. Intention Sprays are pre-diluted for use in spraying in a room and/or on the body. Our Diffuser Essential Oil Blends are 100% Pure, Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils intended for use in both passive and electric diffusers.
How Long Do Your Products Last?
We avoid using synthetic preservatives or alcohol in our blends. So, the rule of thumb is that our products should be used within 6-8 months after purchase.
Why Do Your Products Come In Green Bottles?
Essential Oils can be sensitive to light and heat. Our green bottles help to retain the integrity of the product.
Where Do You Source Your Ingredients From?
AROOMATHERAPY takes sourcing seriously. We use the highest quality essential oils available, sourced from literally all over the globe where flowers, plants and trees are native. Where available, we go with organic and wildcrafted oils and all are synthetic-free.
Why Are Your Prices Higher Than Amazon or My Local Mass Market/ Big Box Store?
In a nutshell…quality and sourcing. When you see a cheap oil and think you’ve scored, it’s likely that there are synthetic properties in it. What you don’t want to do is diffuse synthetics into the air or apply them to your skin. Not to mention, it may be safe to say that Fair Trade practices aren’t being implemented in these cheaply sourced oils. If you are using oils simply because they smell pleasing to you, ok. But that’s not what we’re here for or what we offer. We combine 100% pure, natural therapeutic oils carefully extracted from their source(s) for both their incredible scents as well as for the benefits of which they’ve become known by aromatherapists.
Can I Buy AROOMATHERAPY Products At A Store Near Me?
At present, our e-commerce site (shoparoomatherapy.com) is the exclusive distributor of AROOMATHERAPY products. This allows us to connect directly with our customers, cultivate our community of college student and college parents and exchange stories, experiences and information. While we may decide to branch out in years to come, given our pandemic society, we feel this is the most optimal model for us now and in the near future.
Do You Ship Internationally?
At present, we ship domestically to all states within the US. International shipping will be added in the future. Please note that we do not ship to P.O. Boxes.
Do You Offer Discount Codes?
Yes. From time to time, we offer special promotions. Only one discount code is applicable per order, and discount codes cannot be stacked or combined with other offers.
Can I Use Your Products in My Car?
While you can use our essential oils in your car (a couple of drops on a cotton ball stashed under a seat, in a vent or even a few drops on your floor board), we do not recommend keeping the actual bottle in your car as to avoid extreme temperatures (both hot & cold) depending on where you live and time of year.
Are Essential Oils Flammable?
Essential Oils have what are referred to as ‘flash points’; the temperature where they can evaporate and/or catch fire typically between 140°F– 250°F. Some examples of oils with flash points on the lower end of the spectrum are (but not limited to) Grapefruit, Orange, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile and Black Pepper. So, what does this mean? Including them in a DIY candle-making session is maybe not a good idea as well as keeping them by a stove or near the ashtray of American Spirits. It’s just a common-sense thing. Not a warning to deter you from delving into your personal aromatherapy experience.
Are Essential Oils Safe During Pregnancy?
We recommend that you reach out to your health care provider for guidance on this question (particularly in your first trimester). Also, if you think that you may be pregnant, we encourage you to err on the side of caution and abstain from the use of essential oils until you obtain your conclusive test results.
Can I Use Essential Oils on My Dog?
The short answer is ‘talk to your vet’. Definitely never use undiluted essential oils (i.e. our diffuser blends) on your pup. Some essential oils may be just fine, particularly through diffusion and there are lots of people out there using essential oils on their pets. Having said that, each oil has a different constitution and intended use(s) and therefore, it’s best to speak with a veterinary professional on a case by case basis.
Can I Get The Ratios of Your Blends?
Our blends are proprietary and thoughtfully curated. Therefore, we keep our formulas to ourselves yet very much enjoy sharing them with the college community.
