The Essential Oils Chart

In recent years essential oils have rapidly grown in their popularity, so we thought it would be helpful to create a detailed and well-organized essential oils chart for those researching uses for essential oils in their everyday lives.

The chart is by no means exhaustive, but we spent many hours compiling accurate descriptions for nearly 100 essential oils. The main chart covers the basics, but if you want even more information on each oil, the “Get More Information” link will give you a more in-depth view of its attributes, dilution recommendations, etc.

Along with each essential oil we’ve included a “Try this Oil” button which sends you to a vendor who sells that particular oil. Whenever possible, we looked for vendors who supported sustainable practices and we tried to point you toward marketplaces that are reputable (Amazon.com being one of the most common).

Thanks for visiting the Essential Oils Chart. We’d be honored if you share this resource with others.
