When buying aromatherapy massage oils it is best to realise that although they seem readily available in a variety of places, the quality of the oils can vary drastically. The price charged for aromatherapy oils is not necessarily always indication of the quality. When buying aromatherapy massage oils its best to only buy “Pure” or “Essential oils” and not “fragrance” or “perfume” oil – these are often just a combination of chemicals and more likely to be detrimental to health rather than give any positive benefits. Make sure you avoid oils in clear glass or plastic bottles as they allow light through which can damage the oils inside. Instead they need to be stored in dark or amber coloured bottles. Always remember, a vendor who will let you sample and test the oils and displays knowledge of their products will give you confidence that you are buying a quality aromatherapy massage oil
