Essential oils have soared in popularity as people are increasingly turning towards more natural alternatives for health and wellbeing.
But let’s not fall into the trap of thinking that something “natural” is free of any negative consequence. Currently, the essential oil industry is estimated to exceed $17 billion, rising to $27 billion by 2022.
Essential oils are big business – and it’s important to consider the environmental impact of this insatiable demand.
The essential oil industry is booming, with a market value that’s predicted to exceed 27 billion US dollars by 2022.
Is this surging interest and awareness of essential oils a good thing? In general, yes. They’re now more widely available and accessible than ever before (read more: Why Are Essential Oils Everywhere?) I strongly believe in educating people about holistic options where appropriate. We need to move away from the idea that every symptom requires a pill.
It could be argued that the two big players of the MLM world – doTerra and Young Living – have massively raised the profile of essential oils among the general public. But popularity is a double-edged sword. So many people have now signed up to be “Distributors” (Young Living) and “Wellness Advocates” (doTerra) that the internet is drowning in misinformation about essential oils.
