If you love essential oils, you have probably noticed—some essential oils are expensive! Why so much money for a little bottle of oil?
It has to do with how much plant material is needed to produce the essential oil, and the amount of labor it takes to harvest the plant (and make the oil).
For example, it might take 3 pounds of lavender plant material to produce 15 ml of essential oil. But for rose essential oil, it can take 30 rose blossoms to produce just 1 drop.
