What makes you different from other “aromatherapy” companies?

The difference lies in our purpose. At Soulful Essence, we believe you must “be with nature” in order to find your true essence. Nurturing that bond will fortify and enrich your life and will provide you with the space you need to love and nurture others. That is why we create specialized blends based on native traditions and ancestral plant medicine; each designed for use in every aspect of your daily life. Our essential oil blends eliminate the guesswork and provide you with the means to simplify your life and to reinforce your bond with nature, no matter where you are or what you are doing.

How do you ensure exceptional quality?

All of our essential oil is subjected to rigorous quality control testing that includes Gas Chromatography which tests the chemical composition of each batch of oil we use. This test one of the ways we ensure purity and potency. Additionally, each batch of our oils are subjected to Mass Spectrometry testing which is another way we ensure the purity of our oils. After the Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry testing are complete, we conduct additional, proprietary, sensory testing to ensure quality and consistency.

All of our products are made using only minimally processed, unadulterated botanical extracts. We do not add artificial dyes, fragrances, preservatives or propellants. With the exception of our Reed Diffusers, which contain silicone, the only things in our bottles are gently processed botanical extracts. That’s it. Period. End of story.

Do your products expire?

If cared for correctly, all of our products will last a minimum of one year. Be sure to keep in a cool, dark place. Avoid exposure to sunlight and always ensure that bottles are sealed tightly.

Additionally, we have a few other products that work well on the skin (see the list below).

Another important distinction is our essential oil blends are designed for aromatic and topical use (when diluted) only. Even though our oils are of exceptional quality and undergo rigorous quality control testing, we do not test them for internal use and they are not intended as nutritional supplements. Additionally, we do NOT recommend the ingestion of ANY essential oils unless you are working with a trained, medical specialist who specifically recommends them for internal use.
