One thing I love about essential oils is that you can use them in place of their dried or fresh herb counterparts. This is especially helpful when you want the flavor and benefits, but have picky eaters (like my kids) in your home who won’t eat “green things.” The flavorings are slightly different, a bit more rounded, but I personally love it.
We love taking our oils with us during those life seasons we have every couple years when we move and full time live in our RV. This allows me to attach my oils to a wall, and not have to worry about where to keep fresh or dried herbs, especially when the oil has so many different uses and lasts longer. Just swipe a toothpick or drip a drop and we are all good.

Where to Buy High Quality Parsley Essential Oil
Don’t be fooled into purchasing substandard essential oils using clever marketing and loose labeling laws. Be sure you know about the 10 Dirty Little Secrets of the essential oil industry so you can make the best choice for your needs.
Warning: DO NOT purchase your essential oils through Amazon or similar websites!
Any website that allows anyone to sell on, such as Amazon, eBay, Walmart… etc… are terrible places to purchase essential oils. While you may get a “good deal,” knowing who you’re purchasing from is difficult. There are many counterfeit essential oils being sold that are causing health ailments, major skin reactions, and a lot of misery. These are NOT high quality essential oils. They are fakes being sold purely for profit.
I STRONGLY suggest you know the company that makes your oils AND the seller, how the plants are cared for, what they do for distilling, how and how many times each batch is tested (and when), and their bottling processes. Many companies throw out fancy language for marketing purposes, but actually have no clue how their oils are made because the oils come from a broker (which are almost always diluted in solvents). Transparency is key.
I highly encourage you to check out our How To Find Quality Essential Oils post for in-depth information about why quality matters, and what to look for.
Where we purchase our essential oils, and why
We purchase our oils through Young Living because they set a higher standard for essential oils than what the rest of the industry expects. Their Seed to Seal guarantee is unmatched, and shows their dedication to a farm-to-table type of approach. This company has proven to me time and time again to be the closest thing out there to buying from your local farmer. They are totally transparent in their processes, and even open their farms so you can see for yourself (or involve yourself in the process).
