In the world of aromatherapy and essential oils, you might be looking for a good quality brand that is dependable, pure, and affordable. There are many essential oil brands out there, so it can be a task to figure out which ones are legitimate, unaltered, quality products. Some high quality essential oil brands are quite costly, and others oils so cheap that they make you wonder what additives or synthetics are placed in them.
About a year or so ago, I stumbled upon a site, that sold essential oil products – okay just another brand I figured. I learned that they were a newer company, based out of Vancouver Canada, founded by two siblings Sara and Sean Panton. Sara’s passion for natural products and medicines inspired her to create Vitruvi. Now her and her brother are involved in every aspect of the business.
The oils from Vitruvi are 100% pure, natural, essential oils with no additives, fillers or synthetics. As well, 8 out of their 16 single – note essential oils are certified organic. Even though they source their oils from all over the world (from over 40 different countries), they choose the regions that produce the highest quality essential oils. Once received, each batch is then quality tested three different times, to ensure their purity and potency.
All the labeling of the oils from Vitruvi include the country of origin of the oil as well as the scientific name for each essential oil (ex. lavender – lavandula) These are definitely good indicators of the legitimacy and quality of the products.
How Are They So Affordable?
Not only did the modern design of the products catch my eye, but also the cost of the oils was a surprise – as some brands are quite expensive. So I wondered, are they actually legit?
I actually just recently learned, that since Vitruvi only sells to consumers online and to select wholesalers, they are able to offer high quality, premium essential oils at a fraction of the cost that multi-level companies do!
I Gave Vitruvi A Try
So after I did some research on Vitruvi’s oils and their quality, I decided to order a few and give them a try.
For one, I have to say, (as a person who likes minimalistic design) I think the packaging is genius. The main single oils come in black bottles with labels that were made to look like the abbreviations from the table of elements – how cool is that?
Vitruvi has 16 different single – note essential oils categorized under citrus, floral, woodsy and herbal, as well as 5 blends – Pacific, Dusk, Quiet, Boost, and Grove. From the oils that I’ve used – some of my favorites among them are the bergamot (kinda citrusy with an earl grey scent), grapefruit, and peppermint. I CANNOT live without the peppermint! It was a lifesaver for me last year, on my 13 hour road trip, driving on no sleep! I use the lavender and frankincense in my face cream that I make myself, which are great for the skin.
I also have the Grove blend which includes pine, fir, spruce and cedarwood. It’s nice and earthy, and smells like you are walking through a forest. The scent is not too strong, but is nice to diffuse.
One thing I do wish, is that the company had more options/variety for single note essential oils, so I’m hoping maybe in the future they will come out with more. Although at least they have the main “essentials” which makes it easy to choose from.

Vitruvi’s Other Products
Vitruvi also sells mists for face and body (or you can use them to freshen up your space), as well as some roll on blends. You can also get a pretty ceramic stone diffuser which comes in white or black – my review on the vitruvi diffuser is here. As well, the company just launched a new line called Dynamic Skincare – that lets you create a custom face oil using their awesome selection of carrier oils.
Overall, I like Vitruvi and their essential oils. They deliver quality oils at an affordable cost, and the design of the products look great as well. The company is honest, transparent, and the customer service is great. If you might have any concerns or questions they have an online chat so you can connect with them on Vitruvi’s website.
