Why I Love and Recommend Plant Therapy!

Essential oils, unless you are hiding under a rock they are popping up EVERYWHERE.  Over the course of the past three years, I have purchased a few single oils myself and used them for different DIY cleaning products and home remedies.  All of my oils have been purchased from online sites such as Amazon or Wellness companies, and I have really enjoyed them so far!

Up until this point, I have been meaning to dig a little deeper into exactly how I can use essential oils in our lives to create a more clean, chemical free home through the use of DIY cleaning and beauty products.  I also love the idea of diffusing oils but have balked at the price tag on most diffusers and oil sets.  Not to mention, time has been a bit of an obstacle to learning anything new at this point in my life.  

Plant Therapy

That is when I remembered a company a friend mentioned a few years ago, Plant Therapy.  Like many of the other essential oil companies, Plant Therapy has a wonderful reputation of providing 100% clean essential oils.  Their oils are USDA certified and they now offer an organic line.  

More than that though, Plant Therapy is a company that I know I would be happy to support.  After finally taking some time to read through their website, here are a few things I came across and loved:

Family Owned

As a new WAH Mom, I love supporting others in their businesses and Plant Therapy perfectly aligns with that goal.  Originally started by a young couple from Iowa, Chris and Amanda Jones saw the need for a different kind of essential oil company.  Here is what they have to say about starting their business - 

"Our ultimate goal is not to be the largest essential oil company; it is to positively impact the lives of as many people as humanly possible. Ultimately, I feel this is possible only by providing our customers with an exceptional experience that keeps them coming back. By selling such a high quality product at an affordable price, we not only positively affect the lives of our customers, it also gives us the financial means by which we can help those who are less fortunate to live a happier, healthier, and more productive life."

-Chris Jones

Purity and Quality

There is a lot involved in producing essential oils and Plant Therapy has a purity and quality guarantee that they can stand behind.  According to their website,

"Plant Therapy’s standards of quality are some of the strictest in the industry. Before we sell an essential oil we do everything possible to establish that it is 100% pure, natural, AND of the highest quality, making it appropriate for use in aromatherapy."

Each of their oil suppliers is well known, and each batch of oils is tested thoroughly before going through the process of batching and shipping at their Iowa facility.  The company does everything possible to stand behind their guarantee of 100% pure essential oils.

Helping Hands

There is nothing more wonderful than a company that gives back and that is exactly what Plant Therapy strives to do.  Plant Therapy extends their generosity to those in need both locally and worldwide.  They have taken part in missions outreach and support several wonderful charities including Shriners Hospitals for Children, Make A Wish Foundation, and Toys for Tots.  

Additional Benefits

A few additional benefits that I love about this company as a customer, there is NO minimum monthly order.  They do have a few great options for returning customers but there is absolutely no required upfront purchases, no minimum orders, no push to become a distributor and MOST of their oils come at almost half the cost of other well known companies.  Yep, HALF the price!

Here are some of the purchase benefits for returning customers:

  • Sign up for a recurring purchase and save 5%
  • No contracts or monthly minimums
  • Automatically earn product points with each order
  • Apply those points to future purchases

One other wonderful product line that Plant Therapy offers is their Kids Safe oils.  Essential Oils should always be used cautiously in children and this line is a great alternative to use oils specifically formulated for children 2-10 years old.  

Getting Started

If you like me, have considered starting your journey with essential oils than I can't recommend this company enough!  I started with my essential oils last month and with an overwhelming list of options I started with these two amazing products:

Plant Therapy, the essential oils handbook




This handbook has all of the basic information you need to get with your essential oils.  It covers a variety of oils, topics and helpful tips and tricks to start using your oils as soon as they arrive in the mail!

And speaking of oils, I wanted to make sure I had some of the essentials in our home to get started along with a sharp looking diffuser!  I saved almost 50% by purchasing this starter kit.  Included I received 7 single oils, 7 synergies (or blends) and the brown wood diffuser that looks great in our cabin!

So there you have it!  I have been using my Plant Therapy oils for a little over one month and I am excited to share that I have absolutely no complaints.  I love this clean, chemical free option for my family and our home and I hope you enjoy them as well!
