Who is Rocky Mountain Oils as a company?
Rocky Mountain Oils was started back in 2004. It was pioneered by a group of people who all shared the same goal, to live a healthy lifestyle based around wellness. They also all shared the goal of developing essential oils that are family-friendly and pure and safe for everyone. And that’s how the company was born, and it still champions these values today.
In fact, the cornerstone of the Rocky Mountain brand is their S.A.A.F.E. Promise and their 100% guaranteed satisfaction of quality. They pride themselves on their transparency, their vow to never use big multi-level marketing, and they aim to always provide their pure oils at a reasonable price.
They are a direct-to-customer essential oils company with their own bottling lines and machinery. I love their down-to-earth philosophy and it means you can really trust the brand behind the product.
All Rocky Mountain Oils are 100% pure, which means they have not been polluted or diluted. This also means you can be sure that their effectiveness won’t be compromised.
They use world-renowned chemists, aromatherapists, and expert technicians to develop, create and test all their essential oils so you know that you are buying from the best. The scents are powerful and the oils feel amazing, you will definitely find yourself going back to them again and again.
Rocky Mountain Oils has an eco-friendly ethos, which you can see through the various sustainable practices they undergo. They use 100% recycled packaging which includes the boxes, shipping materials, and even the ink they use!
As well as being recycled, the packing is also fully recyclable. The company also runs the industry’s very first bottle recycling program. You send them your old essential oil bottles (from their own or any other brand), and they send them to an authorized recycling center.
Rocky Mountain Oils also has a line of 100% organic oils. These are all great steps in the industry, and means you can breathe easy supporting Rocky Mountain Oils.
Every single batch of Rocky Mountain Oils oil goes through several phases of testing to ensure what you are getting is completely pure and the best quality. Each batch is third-party GC/MS tested (Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry), and if the results come back that the oil is not 100% pure, Rocky Mountain won’t accept it.
Then the oil is tested again by their own in-house chemists, using organoleptic tests and refractive index tests. The refractive index tests shine a light through the oil to ensure there are no adulterants. Finally, there is also further testing done at the company headquarters!
Still not convinced? You can actually check the real test results of each batch on the website. Just find the unique batch code on the oil you buy, type it into the site, and it will show you the GC/MS report for yourself.
Providing great oils is one thing, but it’s not worth much if you don’t teach people how to use them properly and safely. That’s why it is awesome that Rocky Mountain Oils are committed to providing important information about the safe use and most effective practices of using essential oils.
Under the ‘Learn’ tab on the website, you can find guides for Orange, Lavender, Frankincense, Tea Tree, Lemon, Grapefruit, Eucalyptus, and Peppermint essential oils. These give you an in-depth rundown of the background, benefits, and ways to use the oil.
Rocky Mountain Oils also have a blog, The Blend, where they offer awesome tips, information, diffuser blends, and health tips! And don’t miss their Essential Oils Dilution Guide. As essential oils are heavily concentrated this guide helps you know the right amounts to add to carrier oils so that they absorb well into the skin without irritating it.
Wide Range of Products and Oils
Rocky Mountain Oils stock a wide range of oils as well as a whole host of other products.
Oils, Singles, Blends, Organic oils, and roll-ons, you won’t be short of choice when choosing your next oil. You can browse the entire selection, or, with an awesome feature of the site, you can also browse oils by benefit. The menu is organized into sections like Energy, Mood, Skin Care, etc, in which you can find oils that provide these benefits!
In the wellness section, for example, you may find oils from purifying and soothing Tea Tree single oil to the Breathe Ease blend, a combination of Eucalyptus Radiata, Eucalyptus citriodora, Myrtle, Peppermint, Spruce, Ravintsara, Pine, and Marjoram that helps respiration from allergies, asthma or flu.
You can also buy special kits, with selections of carefully selected complementary oils that work together. These are great if you are not sure which oils to choose and they also make awesome gifts.
They also offer a selection of other products. These include carrier oils to dilute your essential oils and apply them to the skin more easily. You can also buy empty glass bottles, aromatherapy inhalers, essential oil application paper, blending supplies as well as a selection of diffusers. And check out some of their skincare products like body butter, hand cream, and even facial cleanser.
Essential oils are highly concentrated and some of them can be harmful to children. Therefore many essential-oil-loving parents avoid using them on, or around, their kids as they don’t want to run any risks. Which is totally understandable. But luckily, with the Rocky Mountain Oils Kids Line, parents no longer have to worry.
This line is totally kid-safe, avoiding any oils that could be harmful to young children as well as making sure every oil is diluted to a safe level. The blends in this line can bring wonderful benefits to children, from boosting immunity to soothing muscles.
They are all named selectively so you can choose accordingly based on the desired effects. Check out Counting Sheep, Tummy Time or Immunity.
Rocky Mountain Oils don’t recommend using oils for internal use. Although their oils are 100% pure, they believe everyone can have unique reactions to oils. Therefore they suggest that you only use them internally on the recommendation of a doctor or a qualified aromatherapy specialist.
A great thing about Rocky Mountain Oils is the value for money they offer. Prices for 5ml bottles start at just $4.95 at the time of writing, which is cheaper than many competitors. You can find cheaper out there but I’d say that the quality certainly makes Rocky Mountain worth every penny.

Then you can redeem points on your future purchases! You can also earn extra points by following their social media accounts or referring a friend!
Rocky Mountain Oils offers Free Shipping in the US on orders over $25 which is great! They also put the customer first with their 90-day no-questions-asked return policy, so no worries if you change your mind.
To sum up I would definitely recommend Rocky Mountain Oils. They have a great selection of essential oils and blends and I can’t fault the 100% pure, high quality, proven with rigorous testing.
I also love their website layout where you can easily choose oils based on their benefits, perfect for people that don’t know exactly which oils to go for. They also have an awesome sustainable ethos and are one of the only companies that offer a bottle recycling service as well as 100% recycled packaging.
The one thing I would say is that some other companies offer a wider selection of other products, such as more skincare and beauty products or a wider selection of diffusers. But the products they do stock are excellent. And this just means that Rocky Mountain Oils focuses on what they do best, providing amazing quality oils and blends with excellent benefits. I highly recommend!
