Mountain Rose Herbs offers high quality organic bulk herbs, gourmet spices, loose leaf teas, essential oils, herbal extracts, and natural body care ingredients. Our extensive selection includes certified organic, fair trade, ethically wild harvested, & Kosher certified botanical products.

I love their huge selection of Certified Organic essential oils. And a website that’s helpful, informative, and easy to navigate. Mountain Rose Herbs is an excellent choice to explore the uses and benefits of essential oils.

side note: Essential oils are the healthy alternative to chemical fragrances. That nasty stuff is found in too many products and has been linked to many serious health problems. (Campaign for Safe Cosmetics)

reviewed: This practical little Diffuser Pendant. It’s made of terra cotta and perfect for the car. It holds the scent of whatever essential oil you choose. Currently I’m using this pendant with Mountain Rose’s Sweet Orange oil 🙂

Only 3.25 – Each one is hand made and unique and

measurements are typically 1 1/4″ – 1 3/4″ in diameter.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils Defined

The term “essential oil” is a contraction of the original “quintessential oil.” This stems from the Aristotelian idea that matter is composed of four elements, namely, fire, air, earth, and water. The fifth element, or quintessence, was then considered to be spirit or life force. Distillation and evaporation were thought to be processes of removing the spirit from the plant and this is also reflected in our language since the term “spirits” is used to describe distilled alcoholic beverages such as brandy, whiskey, and eau de vie. The last of these again shows reference to the concept of removing the life force from the plant. Nowadays, of course, we know that, far from being spirit, essential oils are physical in nature and composed of complex mixtures of chemicals.1
