The testing that NOW® does separates them from others. For the natural products trade, they own and operate the most progressive and forward-thinking private laboratories that is cutting-edge. Their mission is to provide pure and quality products lower than the competition by at least 25 percent.
NOW® offers 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils with their methods for growing plant species, harvesting, and distillation. The citrus fruit essential oils are cold pressed and other companies steam distill citrus. They do not grade A, B, or C for their oils because they are all pure for superiority.
The oils are GC/MS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry) tested to analyze individual molecules of each plant’s oils for customers to have the best quality essential oils on the market. The oils have no herbicides, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and are free from adulterants such as fillers, bases, and additives. They use USDA Organic plants for all of their products. The many tests are done in-house and if you are interested in all of them, please read the NOW® link.
The oils made from flowers, seeds, twigs, leaves, roots, and bark are made from global farms and distillers who also attest to the purity of the essential oils.
Are You Obsessed with Essential Oils?
You can select from essential oils of scent—camphoraceous, floral, mint, musky, spicy, sweet, and woodsy in glass amber colored bottles.
Essential oils are used by lovers of aromatherapy in their homes, offices, hotel, and bank lobbies, and by massage and physical therapists. Use the oils in diffusers or as a massage for wellness as aromatherapists do. For your adventure with your senses, try all of the NOW® oil creations in singles, blends, roll-ons, carrier oils for massage, accessories, and more.
- Single Oils
My favorite wild flower when walking in the woods in the spring looking for morel mushrooms is finding the blue, pink, or lavender wild geranium (Pelargonium graveolens). The aroma is a soft sweet floral that is purifying, soothing, and stabilizing. The oil is steam distilled from freshly harvested plants and tested for quality and purity packaged in 30 mL (1-ounce) bottles.
A nice blend to your ultrasonic diffuser that uses water is to put 2 drops each of geranium oil, rose absolute oil, and clary sage oil to enjoy the experience.
Blends make it easy for you to enjoy a variety of natural essences. The oils used in these blends have been carefully chosen and precisely mixed by the NOW® expert aromatherapists to provide a scentsational balance of aromas that complement each other, and any mood, perfectly.
If you’re down on a cloudy day, try the Cheer Up Buttercup uplifting blend that incorporates Bergamot Oil, Orange Oil, Lime Oil, Grapefruit Oil, and Lemon Oil that has a light herbal citrus fragrance. Your mood will disappear, and you will feel more energized and refreshed.
Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care. Always read the label.

The plants used to produce the NOW® certified organic essential oils are grown in soil that is free of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and herbicide residues. Each one is guaranteed to be of fine quality, with the plant’s identity confirmed, and certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI).
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) is one of my favorite teas to add a touch of honey when it’s a chilly or gloomy day. The lemon, grassy, and garden-fresh scent is cleansing, stimulating, and purifying. The only ingredient is the 100% pure organic Lemongrass Oil that is steam distilled from the leaves of the plant.
Put 10 drops of Lemongrass, 5 drops of Organic Lemon Oil, and 1 drop of Organic Eucalyptus oil into your ultrasonic type oil diffuser water and jump start your day.
Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffusers
To have aromatherapy and therapeutic wellness benefits, NOW® Solutions cool-mist ultrasonic diffusers are a great way to mist your room. Just add water and your favorite 100% essential oils and enjoy.
This is one of the elegant ultra-modern diffusers from NOW®. It holds about 4.7-ounces of water and is BPA-free plastic for safe using with your kids. Add 2 to 5 drops of your essential oils for covering about 220-square feet of space operating from 4- to 6-hours.
You can expect full benefits from your favorite aroma oil because the technology used does not alter the quality of the oil used by heating it.
Enjoy the 6-changing color long-life LED lights for a spellbinding atmosphere in any room. It is quiet and will shut off automatically when the water is low.
My endorsement for NOW® is a summing up of what they do and offer. They get high ratings for reasonably priced products. I hope this has been helpful to you. Contact them by phone or email with your questions, concerns, comments, and return policy. I like that their site has a search box to get around easily and quickly.
