Updated: Jul 24, 2020


When buying an essential oil, how do you know you're choosing the most suitable one for you?

In terms of an essential oil purity, which are your selection criteria?

Have you ever wondered about these questions at all?

The global essential oil market size exceeded USD 6.0 billion in 2015 and it is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

Growing consumer preference for natural products, no detrimental side effect unlike most conventional drugs and medicines, and widely utilized in cleaning & home products - owing to their superior antibacterial and antiseptic properties- are causing a rapid industrialization. The exorbitant amount of plant matter that is required to create a single litre of essential oil and increasing concerns regarding resource depletion are likely to hamper the industry over the forecast period. Thus, manufacturers in the market have to overcome numerous challenges such as high capital costs and government certification which makes difficult to provide high-quality products with value for money to consumers.
