Have you seen the Radha Beauty essential oils reviews online?
Maybe you are tempted in trying them out.
Don’t try them out until you read what I have to say about their essential oils.
I first tried out Radha Beauty essential oils a couple of months ago. It’s a popular brand that I have seen on Amazon over the last year. I guess you could say they are budget essential oils. Meaning, their price tag is much lower than Young Living, Plant Therapy, Aura Cacia, etc.
To be quite honest with you if you Google “Radha Beauty essential oils reviews” you’re not going to find a lot of information on them.
I did find this review which does speak highly of Radha or Radha Beauty. However, the article was published by Radha Beauty Products LLC.
They have thousands and thousands of positive ratings on individual products they offer on Amazon. However, I have heard that a lot of Amazon reviews can be faked from sites like Microworkers and Amazon Turks.
First, let me start off by telling you a little bit about the company. Radha Beauty was founded by Rebekah Letch in 2014. They claim to be an authority in essential oils and sell a number of “natural” beauty products. They are committed to abiding by the highest moral and ethical standards. Radha Beauty is also committed to protecting mother earth.
But, don’t go out and purchase your Radha Beauty essential oils just yet. I’ve tried them out, done countless hours of research, and will show you why these essential oils should be avoided.
Radha Beauty Pros
- Cheap Essential Oils
- 100% Refund Within 90 Days
Radha Beauty Cons
- Essential Oils Are Adulterated
- Oils Come Out of Bottle To Fast
- Poorly Packaged
- Not Transparent About Crafting & Harvesting
Radha Beauty Purity Test
Essential oils need to be pure. Sadly the industry isn’t regulated very well. There are a lot of companies that write anything on the bottle of essential oil. For instance, with Radha Beauty, they print the words “100% Pure Therapeutic Grade” on their bottles.
“Therapeutic grade” is a term in the aromatherapy industry that doesn’t really mean anything though. However, the words “pure” are also stamped on the label. This is the part that concerns me which I will discuss a little later.
But, I like to do a blot test on any essential oil company that I review. To do this you simply get a piece of clear white paper. For this example, I am just using some white printer paper. I write the name of the company on it and then draw boxes around it with a label under it.
Then you put a drop of essential oil on the paper and wait 24 hours. If it dries and doesn’t leave a ring it probably doesn’t have any chemicals or synthetic properties in it.
You can see the blot test I did for Radha Beauty down below:
After 24 hours this is what it looks like:
As you can see there is a slight tent with orange and lemongrass. The others did dry normally. However, the paper shouldn’t feel greasy when you touch it. The drops where I put the oil are greasy, though. Meaning there is some kind of residue left behind from these essential oils.
But, it gets worse for Radha Beauty and their essential oils. Please keep reading.
Proven To Be Adulterated
What is sad is that 4 out of 6 oils passed my blot test but they didn’t pass a GC/MS test. A GS/MS test will show all the chemicals that are in the substance being tested. Meaning they were actually tested in the laboratory by Dr. Robert S. Pappas (AKA “Dr. P” of essentialoils.org) and they were found to be adulterated.
Here is a video by Dr. P that warns people about purchasing their essential oils:
Here is the proof that the essential oil lavender by Radha Beauty has been adulterated:
Radha Beauty Smell Test
Ok, so you’re still reading this review I’m going to show you what I got.
The day that I got my Radha Beauty essential oils in the mail I remember the mailbox smelling bad. It really wasn’t a pleasant smell and almost mimicked alcohol. As soon as I open the package I could see that the tea tree and lemongrass had leaked.
I used a rag and washed my hands. I wanted to see how they smelled in my diffuser though.
I put about 10 drops in my URPOWER diffuser because I wanted to see how they diffused and what they smelled like. So, I put in orange and lavender which is a good combination. Within, 1 hour I noticed that my head was hurting. Probably, from the synthetic chemicals that are in these essential oils.
The smell wasn’t very potent and I honestly didn’t mean to put that many drops in. However, the essential oils came out of the bottle very quickly (much like Plant Guru).
I tried this a couple more times throughout the week and each time I got a headache. This really just confirmed what I had already researched on Radha Beauty and their essential oils.
Their oils are simply fragrances and not pure essential oils. Fragrances really don’t have any medicinal benefits, though.
Radha Beauty Products
They do sell a lot of health creams, lotions, etc. However, I will be discussing their essential oils in this section.
Radha Beauty does offer a lot of essential oils for cheap. For instance, they have a set of 8 100% therapeutic grade essential oils for under $15. That particular gift set has nearly 12,000 positive ratings on Amazon. However, the GS/MS test show that their oils are synthetic, though.
Radha Beauty does sell electronic diffusers. They have various diffusers to choose from. They range from 120 ml o 3,200 ml (3.2 liters). They have a set where you can get essential oils with their diffuser.
How can so many people be writing positive reviews for these essential oils? I really believe that a lot of them are probably paid. The reviews are probably from people that probably don’t understand aromatherapy very well.
Again, fragrances don’t have any medicinal benefits.
Radha Beauty Price
These essential oils by Radha Beauty are very cheap. They are at the bottom of the line in terms of cost. To give you a comparison the chart below shows how they compare to other companies:
|Radha Beauty (15ml)||$18.95|
|NOW (2 oz)||$26.95|
|Plant Guru (4 oz)||$24.99|
|Edens Garden (4oz)||$69.95|
|Young Living (15ml)||$77.04|
You really do get what you pay for with Radha Beauty essential oils, though. They are cheap but obviously, contain some synthetic compounds.
Radha Beauty Customer Support
Customer support is really pretty decent with Radha Beauty though. They have a 1-800 number you can call and you can leave them a message in which they respond to within 24 hours.
They have a 90-day money-back guarantee. They will refund your money 100% if you are unhappy with your essential oils or other healthcare products.
Radha Beauty Final Thoughts
I really believe that a lot of people try out Radha Beauty because their price tag is very cheap like Green Health and ArtNaturals. There are a lot of people out there that don’t understand essential oils and aromatherapy, though. Really, they are just buying adulterated essential oils that are fragrances.
People are leaving them positive reviews on Amazon. I’m not sure if the reviews are fake or from people that just don’t understand essential oils. Meaning, cheaper isn’t always better and as my Radha Beauty essential oil review shows they are actually synthetic oils.
To be completely honest with you they gave me a headache.
I didn’t find any information on how they harvest or craft their essential oils, but I believe them to be synthetic. Therefore, I really don’t feel the need to waste my time researching how their essential oils are crafted and harvested. I can’t really comment on their other products as I have not tested them out and don’t have any interest in trying them out.
I’m not at a total loss though. I cleaned out my essential oil bottles and can use the bottles to make my own synergies, though.
Again, do yourself a favor and avoid Radha Beauty altogether, as far as essential oils are concerned.

Radha Beauty Review
Radha Beauty essential oils are NOT recommended. Their oils are very cheap, but not worth it. They are adulterated and there are much better companies out there.
