What our customers say

"As far as I am concerned, Quinessence stands alone in selling affordable, high quality products that deliver results.

In my opinion the market has recently become swamped with low-grade so called 'aromatherapy products' that often cause more problems than they solve, and usually contain unpleasant synthetic aromas and chemicals.

With Quinessence products you smell the difference instantly; I was so amazed with the quality of the Rose 5% Dilution essential oil I could hardly believe it had been diluted at all the smell was so lovely."
