I have run across a few Rocky Mountain Oils reviews online, but I promise this will be the most complete review you have read on them.
They are one of the older essential oil companies that sell a plethora of single oils, blends, skin care products, and even supplements.
I get asked about them all the time so I figured it was time to write a review of Rocky Mountain Oils.
So, let me tell you a little bit more about them.
Rocky Mountain Oils (RMO) was founded in 2004. They are headquartered out of Orem, Utah. A group of health enthusiasts were set out on a mission to create essential oils that are safe, pure, and could be used for the entire family.
They have a very strict quality control process to ensure the quality of their essential oils. First, they test their oils with their in-house laboratory, and then they send it to a third-party lab.
Rocky Mountain Oils does have a rewards program that does allow you to save money throughout the year. It has to 3 levels to it and depending on how much you spent can end up saving you a substantial amount of money.
Unlike doTERRA (see review) and Young Living (see review), Rocky Mountain Oils does not operate on an MLM business model. In fact, they are very proud that they are not an MLM company. Each and every order includes free shipping and they are a prominent name in the essential oils industry.
RMO has certainly paved a name for themselves and I am going to break down the company piece by piece so that you can decide if you want to use them or not.
Rocky Mountain Oils Pros

Rocky Mountain Oils Cons

- Kids Line Only Roll-ons.
Rocky Mountain Oils Bottle
So, I have been purchasing their essential oils for a while now. For this example, I am going to show you what is included in the bottle of rosemary (one of my favorite essential oils).
First, the name “Rosemary” is printed on the bottle along with its Latin name Rosmarinus Officinalis. Then the bottle size which in my case is a 15 mL bottle. Most of their bottles come in only the 15 mL size, but smaller ones like rose, Roman chamomile, jasmine, neroli, and melissa come in 5 mL bottles.
Then on the side of the bottle, you will see an image for “diffuse” and “topical”. In this instance, it means you can use rosemary topically or by diffusing it.
The words “Supplement Facts” are printed on the side label which shows a serving size is 1 drop and there are 250 drops per bottle. The part of the plant that rosemary is extracted from is the flower.
There is a warning message that states “consult a medical practitioner for suggested use” and a link to their website www.RMoils.com.
Then, there is a “Guaranteed S.A.A.F.E. label and a barcode on the bottle. I will discuss what this means more a little in this review.
On the top of the cap, the name of the essential oil is stamped on the bottle. This does make it easy to find the essential oil you’re looking for.
Rocky Mountain Oils Purity Test
If you have read any of my essential oils reviews you know that companies like Radha Beauty, Green Health, an ArtNaturals sell cheap adulterated essential oils. It’s actually quite sad that so many companies in the industry will sell adulterated essential oils. There is no governing body in the industry; therefore there is a huge problem with adulterated or synthetic oils.
If you are using essential oils and want to reap the health benefits of them you want the essential oils to be pure. See this article on the purity of essential oils and why it matters.
As I have already mentioned there are companies that write the words “100% pure”, “therapeutic grade”, etc. on their bottles of oils. Rocky Mountain Oils doesn’t print the words “pure” or anything like that on their essential oils. Now, I am going to prove to you that RMO’s essential oils are pure.
GC/MS Testing & Proof
In order to find the chemical compounds that are in a bottle of essential oil, you need to test it. This is called a GC/MS test. It stands for “Gas Chromatography” (GC). MS means Mass Spectrometry.
Basically, without getting too scientific on you it analyzes the substances in the oil and spits out key data which will show you all the compounds that are being tested.
When you go to their website you can search through all of their essential oils and RMO does provide a GC/MS test.
For example, lemon essential oil has a “test results” tab on their product page. When you click on it you can see the test results.
Here is an example of the GC/MS test:
Also, you can check batch specific GC/MS test. Click here. Then you simply enter in your batch number. The batch number is located on the bottom of the bottle.
A lot of companies in the industry will have an in-house chemist test their essential oils. This isn’t the preferred way to do it, though. Instead, you want a third-party laboratory to test the essential oils. This is a quality control protocol that a lot of the better essential oil brands are doing.
Rocky Mountain Oils does use third-party testing.
Organic Essential Oils
It’s always nice if an essential oil company offers organic essential oils. Typically, you’re going to expect to pay a little bit more for organic essential oils.
One of the best things about organic essential oils is there isn’t any chance that they are going to contain any pesticides or anything in them.
Rocky Mountain Oils does offer “USDA Organic” essential oils. They currently offer 10 organic essential oils, which are available in two different gift sets. They have a 6 piece gift set and a four-piece gift set. You do get a savings of 20% when you purchase their organic essential oils in a gift set, too.
As I have mentioned earlier in this Rocky Mountain Oils review they do third-party testing. This helps to establish a quality control for their customers. But, RMO has a S.A.A.F.E. Promise. This means:
S stands for satisfaction. RMO wants you to be 100% satisfied with their products. Therefore, they guarantee that their products are going to be potent and pure.
A stands for authentic. They buy only the highest quality raw ingredients to carefully craft their essential oils. RMO has very strict quality control guidelines. They test every sample before putting the product on the market for purchase.
A stands for analysis. RMO uses GC/MS testing. Their essential oils are tested in a third-party laboratory.
F stands for free of adulterants. You can trust 100% that their oils will be free of adulterants. They internally test their oils prior to sending them out to a third-party laboratory for GC/MS testing.
E stands for effective and pure. If the oil didn’t get passed as pure it won’t be sold.
Rocky Mountain Oils Smell Test
So, for a solid month or so I would diffuser rosemary and peppermint in my URPOWER diffuser while I worked. Peppermint is an essential oil that should stimulate you (along with other health benefits). Rosemary is an essential oil that should help you learn (along with other health benefits).
The smell was very potent with Rocky Mountain Oils. Meaning, usually I put in 7-10 drops with other companies essential oils. However, with RMO I only put in about 4-5 drops. The scent was very strong and I did experience the stimulating and concentration properties that both essential oils contain.
Furthermore, I have used lavender, lemon, tea tree, eucalyptus, grapefruit, etc. and noticed that the quality of these essential oils is exceptional. RMO certainly has some of the most high-quality essential oils that I have ever used.
Using Rocking Mountain Oils Internally
There are a handful of companies that actually recommend the internal use of essential oils.
The FDA has very tough regulations on using essential oils internally. Many certified aromatherapist will advise against using essential oils internally. But, really it’s a pretty complex subject, which you can find out more information here.
However, RMO does not recommend using essential oils internally. They do suggest that you contact a certified aromatherapist prior to internal use. It’s also recommended that you consult your doctor prior to using essential oils internally.
Rocky Mountain Oils Products
RMO does offer 82 single blends. They do have over 60 blends of synergies. These blends can be helpful with relieving depression symptoms, stress, fatigue, sleep issues, strengthening your immune system, skin care, acne control, and pain relief.
Rocky Mountain Oils does offer 7 different electronic diffusers. They range from $20-$70 dollars. After, carefully looking at their diffusers it looks like they do sell diffuser that was created by GreenAir, Scent Living, and Sparoom. But, they do have a few that they have created.
The “Droplet Diffuser” is an awesome diffuser for the cheap price tag of under $25, though. It’s a smaller diffuser that holds 150 mL of water but covers 400 square feet. It can run for up to 6 hours with continuous usage.
It has color rotating modes (green, purple, red, and blue). Each can be fixed and you can easily turn the colors off if you want. What I really like about this ultrasonic diffuser is it is powered by USB. Therefore, I can easily plug it into my laptop and use it. Also, it’s a pretty small diffuser that you can even put in your cup holder in your car. The dimensions are 4” X 4” X 3.75”.
It’s a BPA free plastic diffuser that comes with a one-year manufacturer warranty, too.
If you’re looking to get started with essential oils there can be a lot to choose from.
Beginners that are looking to get started using essential oils would be interested in a starter kit.
RMO does offer lots of different starter kits. However, one that a lot of people would be interested in is the “Single Essential Kit”. It comes with 4 15 mL bottles. They include lavender, lemon, peppermint, and tea tree.
For the money, this is a set that has a lot of value.
Essential Oils For Kids
Rocky Mountain Oils does sell roll-ons for kids, too. Meaning, these roll-ons are safe for children to apply them topically. Typically, their roll-ons are $14.95 a piece. However, RMO does have a “Kids Daily Kit” where you do get the roll-ons for a reduced price.
Also, they do have a “Kids Line Complete Kit” where you do get all 9 of their roll-ons.
I do wish that RMO did offer synergy blends that are safe for kids to use aromatically, though.
Home Cleaning Products
Personally, I am not a fan of household cleaning products that contain chemicals. These chemicals are harmful to our body. I have been making my own homemade cleaners for years (see this article).
But, Rocky Mountain Oils does have a line called Ava Shield. This simply their own cleaning line which does include:
- Hard Surface Cleaner Concentrate.
- Foaming Hand Soap.
Their Ava Shield home clean products use their blend “Immune Strength”. It’s a blend that was carefully crafted to keep you well. So, it should be no surprise that it is used in the cleaners and soaps.
RMO does sell infused supplements, too. They sell 5 different supplements:
- Burst. This is a natural energy supplement. They can help increase energy levels, stamina, and aid in healthy weight loss.
- Enhance. This is an Omega supplement. It has Omegas 3,5,6,7, 9, along with Vitamin D and E. It can help with brain function, immune function, promote healthy skin, hair, and nails.
- Nourish. This is a multivitamin supplement. It has amino acids, minerals, antioxidants and their signature Flu Time essential oil blend.
- Replenish. This is a probiotic supplement. It contains 11 billion live cultures from 9 unique probiotic strains to improve your digestive health.
- Defend. This is an immunity supplement. It helps to protect your immune system from seasonal threats and environmental threats. It comes jam-packed with antioxidants.
Lastly, you can purchase their entire collection and get a 30% discount.

Rocky Mountain Oils Price
My Rocky Mountain Oils review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning their price tag. The price should always be something you consider when purchasing essential oils. One of the few cons to RMO is their essential oils are on the higher end. Here is a price comparison with other brands in the industry:
Rocky Mountain Oils Price ComparisonThe below tested essential oils are for the essential oil lemongrass.

Rocky Mountain Oils Final Thoughts
Do I recommend Rocky Mountain Oils? You bet I do! They are a well-respected name in the industry. They have some of the strictest quality control guidelines in the industry. Their essential oils are internally tested and then third-party tested.
RMO essential oils are some of the highest quality essential oils you can purchase. I’m so happy with the oils I have purchased from them over the years. Not to mention you get free shipping on all orders and their rewards program is great for saving money.
However, the prices are a bit higher with RMO and it might not fit into some peoples budget. If that is you and you can’t afford them I would highly recommend Plant Therapy (see review) and Edens Garden (see review). Both of those companies also sell high-quality essential oils at a cheaper price-tag.
Do you have experience with Rocky Mountain Oils? I would love to hear about it. Please a leave a comment down below.
