I'm glad you asked! Essential oils are all-natural oils that are derived from plants. They are created by distilling or compressing plants to create a nutrient-rich, smaller, and more potent version of the plant. Distilling and compressing oils might sound intense but this is actually one of the safest and natural methods of extracting oil.
The use of essential oils as medicine is called Aromatherapy and that’s what we’re all about. Aromatherapy can be used to treat a variety of ailments including stress relief, pain relief, sleep disorders and anxiety. And yes, there is scientific evidence to back that up! Essential oils are manufactured and sold all over the world. But because essential oils are the byproduct of plants, the oils can vary in quality. For example, to create 1 pound of lavender oil, it takes 150 pounds of lavender bush.
Some manufacturers, specifically in China, cut corners by using artificial and cheap perfumes instead of real plants. That’s not how we operate. We only want to supply our customers with high-quality essential oils that are 100% pure (unless made to be used on skin). And in order to extend their shelf-life, our high-quality oils are stored and sold in ultraviolet-blocking bottles, such as an Amber bottle, with an orifice reducer cap. This prevents oxidation and makes your oils last much longer and let’s be honest, you deserve it!
Yes, essential oils are safe! Consider them to be nature’s medicine - that’s why we named our oils, Earths Cure. In order to use them in the safest way possible, there are a few things to remember.
For starters, if you’re interested in applying oil directly on your skin, we suggest our Roll-On bottles which are specifically made for skin. If you wish to take matters into your own hands, you can dilute the oil with a carrier oil, like MCT. Also, if you are applying to skin, it’s best to avoid the sun/and or fake ultraviolet rays like tanning beds.
Certain oils don’t react well to direct light while on skin. The other thing you don’t want to do is drink the oils. These little bottles are potent and not meant to be ingested. We want you to be as safe as possible using our products so feel free to email or call us with any other follow-up questions.
Some people are sensitive to "hot oils". Some hotties are Clove, Cinnamon, Oregano, Cassia, Thyme, and even the cooling sensation of Peppermint. All of these oils need a generous amount of carrier oil for any kind of topical application to tone down the heat or burning sensation!
Our Roll-On bottles are already diluted and were designed with sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, it’s best to run a patch test before you use oils on a large part of your body. The best way to do that is: apply a small amount of oil to the underside of your arm and then wait 24-48 hours.
If you don’t have a reaction, then you’re safe to proceed! It is important to remember that everyone, sensitive skin or not, should avoid eyes, ears, genitals and mucous membranes.
This is a really common question and we understand why people ask. To some, it must seem strange that a little vial of oil from the earth is capable of doing anything spectacular. The thing is, that little vial is capable of more than you know.
Consider your diet – we all know that eating healthy fruits and vegetables is good for our bodies and generally speaking, eating a diet rich in processed foods takes a toll on our health. Think of essential oils as nutrition for your body. Much like fruits and vegetables, pure essential oils are natural remedies that promote a variety of health benefits.
When available, we always supply scientific research to back claims. We always encourage your own due diligence. Here are some good beginner reads:

This is a great question, the answer depends on what you’re looking for. The best way to figure out which essential oil is right for you is to first identify the issues you’re trying to address.
If you’re struggling with muscle or joint soreness, we recommend PAIN RELIEF. If you need to bring peace and tranquility into your life, then go with HAPPY MOOD. Or maybe you suffer from anxiety, in which case we suggest STRESS RELIEF. There really is an essential oil for everyone and we encourage you to click on the Products link on our homepage and see what speaks to you.
You can always call us and we would be happy to give you suggestions (800) 674-3571.
Each of our essential oils has a different use and so the method to gain the most relief differs. The short answer is: follow the instructions on the label. Here's are the general rules of thumb:
Topical Oils for Pain/Discomfort: Apply directly to area of pain and massage for 2-3 minutes.
Topical Oils for Mood: Here at Earths Cure, we want to give you more and so we asked one of our specialists, Nadia Strutz, for her advice:
"The use of essential oils can best be enjoyed by combing the holistic benefits as well as the physical therapeutic properties. I recommend all my clients to set aside a time for themselves. You can spend a few minutes in silence or enjoying your favorite music while becoming aware of your heightened sense of self-awareness. By practicing simple breathing, you revitalize your mind through your sense of smell. The oils also warm and soothe tense muscles and parts of the body. In a matter of days, this habit will become your most favorite part of the day."
Headache Relief Oils: Apply to temples and gently massage in circular motion for 2-3 minutes.
Immunity Oils (Germ Fighter): Apply to hands and feet and rub in for 1 minute.
Sleep Aid Oils (Good Night):Apply to one or all of the following: pillowcase, chest, temples, or back of neck.
The easiest answer is that we promise to be different. You’re right…you have a lot of options when it comes to where you buy essential oils but we are trying to fix some of the industry issues that exist with a large number of those companies.
Our oils are 100% therapeutic grade and we are committed to maintaining the highest levels of purity. We’re health nuts just like you and we’re sick of dealing with products that end up being full of chemicals and synthetic materials. That’s why we created Earths Cure.
We went right to the source for the best oils and we want you to experience the true health benefits that come from using incredible ingredients. We have the best ingredients in distillation process in the business, in our opinion.
If you find a higher quality oil elsewhere, we'll refund your money. Also, if for some reason you are unsatisfied with your products, you can return them within 30 days for a complete refund.
Real essential oils are backed by scientific research and like we said above, are proven to have therapeutic benefits. The majority of cheap essential oils are actually synthetic fragrances, otherwise known as aroma-chemicals. Aroma-chemicals are created in labs, have no health benefits and can even be harmful to your body.
In fact, they might already be in products you use such as soaps, candles and skin care fragrances. But we here at Earths Cure we refuse to sell you a product that might actually be doing you harm.
Don’t be fooled by flashy ads promoting unrealistically inexpensive oils because you are almost guaranteed to be buying a lesser product – and one with aroma-chemicals instead of essential oils.
Fake oils are much cheaper because they contain aroma-chemicals. It’s actually pretty expensive to create real essential oils. Remember what we said above about needing 150 pounds of lavender bush to create 1 pound of lavender oil? We weren’t kidding! Another easy tell is plastic bottles.
If you’re buying essential oils in plastic bottles, they’re likely fake because real oils can actually eat away at plastic which is why real oils are stored in glass. If you want to do some testing on your own to determine if your oils are fake, give these a try: place a drop of oil on a piece of paper and let it dry. If there’s a ring around it, it’s not 100% pure.
Please note, however, that rollers are not 100% pure because that would irritate skin. You can also conduct your own scent test. Just like wine, not every batch of real essential oils will smell exactly the same, but fake aroma-chemicals smell very consistent.
The easiest way to tell if your oils are real is by purchasing through a legitimate company that is totally transparent about where the oils come from. At Earths Cure, we are committed to being honest and upfront about our products. And like we said above, it’s important to pay attention to the bottles you’re buying. Essential oils should be stored in ultraviolet blocking bottles because the sun can negatively affect the quality of the oil.
Another thing to look at on the bottle is where the oil actually comes out. Your bottle should have a little piece in the top to give you an even distribution of drops but also to prevent oxidization, which extends shelf life!
Finally, real oils will be upfront that they have undergone something called ‘Purity lab tests.’ These are tests done by reputable companies and if the oils pass the purity test, the oil company should post an image of an authentic GC-FID analysis report.
Our mushroom elixirs are extracted with the absolute best extraction methods, which means you get quality ingredients. How does the 3 step extraction method work? First, the mushrooms are fermented, to make the Polysaccharides, Triterpenoids, and Alkaloids, more bio-available. Then, we do a hot water extraction, because Polysaccharides are only water soluble. Finally, we do 90 days in USP Grade Cane Alcohol, because triterpenoids are only alcohol soluble. It takes us around 100 days to make each bottle.
