My favorite essential oil.

Beautiful oils

I have been using Source vital’s essential oils for a few years now and I can tell a real difference in potency between their oils and others I have tried. My favorite brand by far. Customer service is also very good- friendly and accommodating.

You won't be disappointed

This Blood orange essential oil is superb. I find that it blends particularly well with the Ylang-ylang essential oil.
