Simply Earth Essential Oils Review

Simply Earth is a newer essential oil company that not very many people know about. They’re not as popular as Young Living or Doterra but I’ve been really enjoying using their oils and thought it was time to do a Simply Earth essential oils review. But before we get started I want to go over a few things in regards to essential oil brands.

Choosing an Essential Oil Brand

Choosing an essential oil company to buy from is not something you should do blindly. You should do careful research before buying essential oils to ensure the oils are 100% pure and high quality. Because believe it or not, there are companies that sell fake essential oils. You can read this post to find out how to spot them.

Another mistake you might make when purchasing essential oils is buying from the more popular (and more expensive brands) without doing proper research. Do not let the price and popularity of an essential oil brand sway you into believing they’re the best. Always do your research.

So what should you look for in an essential oil brand? I actually wrote an entire post on this subject which you can read here. But to quickly sum it up I believe there are 7 factors that matter most when choosing an essential company to buy from.

  1. Plants are harvested from indigenous locations
  2. Plants are organic or wild crafted
  3. The company uses proper extraction methods
  4. The oils are completely unadulterated
  5. The company provides GC/MS testing reports
  6. The company bottles and labels their oils properly
  7. The companies essential oils are fairly priced

So we are going to see if Simply Earth essential oils meets all the criteria above. But before we do I would like to share a little bit about the company.

The History of Simply Earth Essential Oils

Simply Earth Essential Oils

Simply Earth is small, family-run essential oils company based in Hingham, Wisconsin. Below is a quote from the Simply Earth website that explains why they decided to start an essential oil company.

“We were tired of overpaying for essential oils and having to go to parties to actually buy them. We were frustrated by using natural products that didn’t always work. When we asked around, we learned lots of women were upset about the situation too, so we decided to do something about it. We started Simply Earth to help make your home natural.” ~ Simply Earth

One of my favorite things about Simply Earth is that 13% of their profits are donated each month to organizations working to fight against human trafficking. You can learn more about that here.

Okay, now on to the important questions!

1 | WHERE DO THEIR OILS COME FROM?

Simply Earth sources their plants from farms located all over the world. They claim to carefully and ethically choose a region where the plant will thrive. When the plants have reached maturity, they are harvested safely and fairly.

2 | ARE THEIR OILS FROM ORGANIC OR WILD-CRAFTED PLANTS?

I could not find any information about this on their website. So I reached out to them via there website chat system and asked them and received a very quick response which is below.

“Thank you for reaching out to us and inquiring about our essential oils! We are so glad you contacted us because we love talking about our oils! We are extremely proud of our oils and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
In order for our oils to be listed as organic, all of the suppliers that supply these oils from around the world would need to be Organically Certified. This is extremely expensive and hard to maintain the process. We pride ourselves in providing an extremely high-quality oil at an affordable price. In order to provide our customers with that, we have chosen not to require all of the oil suppliers to be organically certified.
Although we are extremely picky on where our oils come from and the processes they use, we cannot guarantee that all organic processes are followed. We are very proud of our oils and we guarantee our individual oils and blends are 100% pure and never-ever diluted!”

 3 | WHAT IS THEIR EXTRACTION METHOD?

The extraction method is very important. The extraction method can either preserve or destroy the plants molecular structure. Simply Earth extracts their oils through either cold-pressing or steam-distillation. Both are the most popular and common extraction methods in the essential oil industry.

4 | ARE THE OILS COMPLETELY UNADULTERATED?

Simply Earth does not add any bases, carriers, parafins or additives to any of their oils. They test every batch to ensure 100% purity.

5 | DO THEY PROVIDE GC/MS TESTING REPORTS?

Simply Earth does third party GC/MS batch testing. GC/MS testing helps ensure extract purity and composition potency by ensuring major constituents are within generally accepted guidelines. They display quality testing in the form of GC/MS reports for all their oils right on each individual product page.

6 | DO THEY USE PROPER BOTTLING AND LABELING?

They use dark, amber, glass bottles which prevents the oil from being exposed to ultraviolet radiation. The label includes the Latin botanical name of the oil, safety information as well as the country of origin. So I would definitely say they use proper bottling and labeling.

7 | ARE THEIR OILS PRICED FAIRLY?

There prices are amazing. They’re extremely fair. You can check them out  here. And I’ll be creating an essential oil price comparison chart soon!

But for now let’s just compare prices for grapefruit essential oil. A 15ml bottle from Simply Earth is $9.99. A 15ml bottle from Young Living is $22.70. And a 15ml bottle from Doterra is $24.

That’s a huge difference! And that is just one example.

FINAL THOUGHTS ABOUT Simply Earth ESSENTIAL OILS

Overall, I believe Simply Earth is a great company to purchase essential oils from. The one thing that bothered me a little bit after doing my research was that their oils are not guaranteed to be organic or wild crafted. But I’m going to continue to use their oils because not being certified organic doesn’t necessarily mean pesticides were used on the plants. It just means that certification process is too expensive (which it is and that drives me crazy!) and they would prefer to keep their prices affordable for their customers.

Also, the fact that this is a small, family run business who actually uses their oils in their homes and on their families really increases my confidence in the quality of their oils.

Although, it is very important to me that the essential oils I use in my home and around my family are from organic or wild crafted plants please keep in mind that pesticides in general are found at very low levels in essential oils. So low that they can’t even be detected by GC/MS testing. So don’t completely dismiss an essential oil company if they cant guarantee that their oils are completely organic.

Well I hope you enjoyed this Simply Earth essential oils review. If you have any questions or comments be sure to share them below. And don’t forget to use the code HAPPYHEARTFREE if you decide to buy a Simply Earth subscription box.
