I promise after reading my Plant Therapy essential oil reviews you will be hooked on them.
Plant Therapy is an essential oil company you might run across if you’re new to aromatherapy and essential oils. They are very popular in the essential oil industry and thousands of people have used them for years.
Plant Therapy gets a lot of good feedback in the industry. They have already gotten tons and tons of 5-star reviews on Facebook. It’s very hard to find any negative plant therapy reviews with actual legitimate concerns about the company.
Plant Therapy has certainly paved a name for themselves in this competitive industry. I got the chance to test out their oils and I will be writing about it in this full Plant Therapy review.
Plant Therapy was founded in 2011. They are a family owned business and Chris and Amanda Jones are the owners (husband and wife). They grew up around entrepreneurs. Chris and Amanda created an essential oil brand that sells high-quality essential oils at an affordable price. Here is a direct quote from Chris Jones their CEO:
“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, but 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.”
Along with managers in key areas, Plant Therapy has a well-known aromatherapist in the backend of their company. Robert Tisserand (a well-known) aromatherapist with over 40 years in the industry is apart of the Plant Therapy team.

Plant Therapy Cons
Plant Therapy Bottle
When you purchase essential oils you want to make sure they are pure. Sadly, because the industry isn’t regulated very tightly anyone can pretty much print anything on a bottle of essential oils that they want. Hence, why so many brands print the words “therapeutic grade” or “100% pure” on their bottles.
Obviously, each bottle of essential oil is labeled by Plant Therapy with the name of the oil. The words “100% pure essential oil” are printed on the bottle right under their logo. For instance, my organic peppermint bottle has the words “organic peppermint” on it. The Latin name is Mentha x piperita. Then it has the size which mine is 1/3 fl. oz. (10 mL).
On the top of the bottle it has the words “organic peppermint” so if you have a number of them in a storage box it’s easy to grab the one you want. Really, love that Plant Therapy does this and wish others would do this as well.
Next, on the bottle, it will have a little bit about the essential oil. For peppermint, it states that peppermint is stimulating when it’s diffused. It can improve your energy levels and enhance your alertness. It’s a great essential oil to use topically, which you should dilute at 2-3% for head and neck tension. There is a warning to not use it topically or diffuse it around children that are under 6.
Lastly, there is a link to their website, a telephone number and an address:
Plant Therapy Inc.
510 2nd Avenue S.
Twin Falls, ID 83301
It’s certified organic by ECOCERT ICO.
Plant Therapy Testing Procedure
Plant Therapy’s testing procedure is where they shine.
I firmly believe that other companies should take note of their testing procedure.
A lot of essential oil companies will have in-house chemist that run a GC/MS test (Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry) on their essential oils. This will show you all the chemical compounds that are found in the essential oil. However, Plant Therapy does it differently. They send their essential oils to a third-party laboratory.
It’s a great idea to send your oils to a third-party laboratory because an outside entity is testing your oils. Therefore, the quality control procedure is strengthened with Plant Therapy.
But, wait there is more you can actually check your oils online.
Check Your Bottle Online
Each bottle of essential oil from Plant Therapy will have a batch code. As you can see from the image down below this is what it will look like:
All you have to do is go to Plant Therapy’s website. Search for the essential oil that you purchased. So, for instance, I want to check my bottle of lavender (10ml) that I bought. I go to planttherapy.com and type in lavender 10ml and click on the correct lavender essential oil product.
Then you scroll down on the product page and click on “test reports”. This will show the reports for that batch. As you can see this is what it looks like:
The chemist that tested the Plant Therapy essential oil signs the report, too. There is no hiding anything and Plant Therapy is fully transparent about their testing procedure. It’s really nice to be able to check your bottle of essential oil to help verify that it hasn’t been adulterated.
Plant Therapy Crafting & Harvesting
Essential oils are crafted from all different parts of a plant. This could mean from the stem, flower, bark, etc. For instance, orange is harvested from the peels of the oranges.
Plant Therapy does get their essential oils from various suppliers. However, they need to know the supplier’s reputation, background, and quality of plants before they use them. Meaning, they will require 3 to 5 samples for each oil. This ensures that the ingredients are of high quality.
Most Plant Therapy essential oils are steam distilled. However, their citrus oils are extracted using cold pressed extraction. Additionally, they do have a couple CO2 extracted oils and a couple solvents extracted absolutes.
Plant Therapy Smell Test
It’s important that your essential oils have a good smell to them, isn’t it?
I like to do a smell test with every essential oil company I review. I have tested a lot of different essential oils from Plant Therapy. I test them in my essential oil diffuser which is an InnoGear 150 ml. Also, I have tested them in my URPOWER diffuser (see review here).
Ok, so the first day I ever used Plant Therapy was a good day. In the past I had used essential oils from Green Health (see review), Radha Beauty (see review), and ArtNaturals (see review). Those companies I didn’t know at the time sold cheap adulterated or synthetic essential oils.
But, from the first day I put drops of lavender into my diffuser, I realized what a “pure” essential oil actually smelled like. Instead, of having to put in 15 drops of some cheap brand I only needed 3-4 drops of Plant Therapy’s essential oils.
I’m very happy with the quality and smell of essential oils from Plant Therapy.
Plant Therapy Products
You are not just limited to essential oils with Plant Therapy. They have a lot of blends, roll-ons, carrier oils, gift sets, diffusers, accessories, and body care products.
Plant Therapy offers 125 single essential oils. 33 of those essential oils are USDA Certified Organic. For example, Bergamot is organic.
Roll-ons are premade essential oils with a carrier oil. You can apply them to your skin topically whenever you would like. Plant Therapy offers 32 roll-ons. Here are a couple examples of roll-ons; muscle aid and immune aid.
Carrier oils are needed if you want to use essential oils topically (click here to read an article on carrier oils and essential oils). Meaning you will have to dilute the essential oils before applying them to your skin. Plant Therapy offers 20 different carrier oils. Here are a couple examples of the carrier oils they offer; coconut and sweet almond.
It’s not practical to carry a bottle of essential oil around with you everywhere you go. Inhalers are convenient, budget-friendly, and last for several months. Plant Therapy has some of the best inhalers. They come in three different colors; teal, purple, and grey. I use mine every single day. Please see my Plant Therapy inhaler review.
Plant Therapy does offer about 43 different gift sets. So, you do have a lot of options if you don’t want to purchase the oils individually. For starters, I am going to show you a couple of their gift sets that I really like.
Plant Therapy 7 & 7 Set
This set by Plant Therapy contains 14 essential oils in total. It includes 7 essential oils and 7 synergies. Each bottle is 10 ml. They also come in a wooden box so you can store your essential oils in them.
The essential oils that are included in this set are:
The synergies that are included in this set are:
- Germ fighter.
- Immune aid.
- Invigor aid.
Plant Therapy Top 6 USDA Certified Organic Essential Oils Set
Plant Therapy does sell a gift set that includes 6 organic essential oils. These essential oils are 10 ml each. They come with euro style dropper cap and are undiluted. The following oils are included in this set:
- Sweet orange.
- Tea tree.
KidSafe Product Line
One really cool thing about Plant Therapy is they launched a product line called “KidSafe”. This was developed and overseen by Robert Tisserand, who is a well-know aromatherapist. These essential oils are made specifically for children between the age of 2 and 10.
These essential oils are designed to help out with the following:
- Congested sinus and runny noses.
- Calming down.
- Skin rashes.
The essential oils are undiluted, but Plant Therapy does have a number of roll-ons. Don’t let the name fool you though, KidSafe synergies are just as effective for adults as they are for kids, though. Meaning they are full strength essential oils.
They are just made with oils that are safe for kids. Meaning, oils like peppermint will not be included in the brand because kids could have breathing problems with peppermint essential oil.
The most popular diffuser by Plant Therapy is called AromaFuse. It has a 380 mL water tank. It comes in three different colors; pearl white, rose gold, and wood-grain brown. This diffuser does cover 500+ square feet and runs for up to 10 hours.
The AromaFuse has 5 different timer settings. It will diffuse until it runs out of the water. If you push the button twice it will run for 2 hours. When you push the button three times it diffuses for 15 seconds and then shuts off for 30 seconds. When it’s pressed four times it diffuses for 15 minutes and shuts off for 30 minutes. Lastly, if you hit the button five times it diffuses for 30 minutes and shuts off for 30 minutes.
Diffuse On The Move
Plant Therapy does sell a USB diffuser called “Diffuse On The Move”. It’s a lightweight diffuser that you can plug in anywhere that has a USB port. This diffuser comes in black, white, pink, and champagne. It has three different timer settings; 10, 30, and 60-second intervals. It comes with a bottle and replacement wicks. You can also purchase extra replacement bottles and wicks.
Plant Therapy Customer Support
Customer support is always an important part of a essential oil business. If you’re new to essential oils you’re probably going to have some questions. I have found the easiest way to get in touch with Plant Therapy is through their “live chat” feature on their website. They do have business hours which are:
- Monday – Friday: 8 AM – 5 PM Mountain Time Zone
- Saturday: 8 AM – 3 PM Mountain Time Zone
As you can see from the question I had below Plant Therapy does answer your questions in a timely manner:
Additionally, you can call them at 1-800-917-6577. You can even call them from your mobile phone and receive a text message back.
Plant Therapy Price
The price can often be a dealbreaker when I am purchasing essential oils. Some essential oil brands charge a lot for their oils. Others will be a lot cheaper. The problem with cheaper essential oils is they’re usually of very low quality. So, I wanted to compare Plant Therapy’s essential oils with other companies. The chart down below shows how their price compares to other essential oil companies:
|Plant Therapy (10ml)||$7.95|
|Eden's Garden (10ml)||$10.93|
|Aura Cacia (15ml)||$6.88|
|Young Living (15ml)||$23.49|
As you can see the prices are reasonable with Plant Therapy.
There are similar companies in the essential oil industry that are MLM companies. Thankfully, Plant Therapy isn’t an MLM company. The problem with MLM companies is they increase the price and you end up overpaying for essential oils.
I like how Plant Therapy is very transparent about the pricing. You won’t see the words “retail” and “wholesale” on their website. But, wait it gets better.
Who doesn’t like saving money?
Plant Therapy does have a rewards program. It’s called “PT PERQS”. Basically, it works like this; you purchase their products you get rewards (or credit) towards future Plant Therapy purchases.
All you have to do is register an account. There are no minimum purchases and it only takes a couple minutes to sign up.
How Plant Therapy’s PT PERQS” program works:

- 1,500 points = $5.
- 3,000 points = $15.

You can get points from the following actions:

Plant Therapy Final Verdict
So, do I recommend Plant Therapy’s essential oils? Yes! They are perfect. I thought really long and hard about them and can’t think of one single negative thing to say about Plant Therapy. I gave them 5 out 5 stars. They are one of my favorite essential oil companies. I trust them completely and know that I am going to get quality essential oils with Plant Therapy.
They don’t want to be the biggest well-known essential oil business. They want to be the most trusted one. Again, their prices are respectable, customer support is great, and they are my top pick for buying essential oils.
Plant Therapy offers a ton of essential oils, blends, roll-ons, sets, diffusers, and a lot more body care products and accessories.
They are certainly one brand of essential oils that I trust and I know the quality of their oils are top notch. Many other companies in the industry don’t have strict regulations like Plant Therapy does. You can even check your bottle and verify the contents in it.
Again, I can’t think of one single reason why you wouldn’t want to purchase essential oils from Plant Therapy. The loyalty program is awesome and can save you money in the long-run, too. They are certainly my favorite brand of essential oils and I highly recommend them to everyone.
They have a variety of gift sets and you can even purchase diffusers from them. I am so happy to write Plant Therapy up a great review and highly recommend you test them out for yourself.
I actually diffused rosemary and peppermint while carefully crafting this Plant Therapy review. It’s nearly 3,000 words, and I thank Plant Therapy for creating an awesome brand!
