We all need a little breather every now and then. One of my favourite ways to unwind? Taking a moment to myself and breathing in an essential oil blend. Since Ancient Egyptian times, natural oils have been used for multiple purposes, including religious rites and medical solutions. Today, natural aromatherapy oils are popular for their mood-boosting and stress-relieving benefits. Here we explore seven online stores where you can shop pure essential oils!
This Singapore-based online store sources 100 percent pure, natural and sustainable essential oils directly from farmers and distillers around the world. For example, the lemongrass oil is from Kerala, India, the tea tree oil from Australia and the cinnamon oil from Sri Lanka. Other best-sellers include travel-friendly products like a mosquito repellent ($9), hand sanitiser spray ($7) and yoga mat sanitiser spray ($13.50), which is a fragrant blend of tea tree, lemongrass, sweet orange, lavender and peppermint oils.
