Where to buy essential oils?

Can you please tell me where I could find a local shop that sells Essential Oils?

The first place that popped into our head (because of a previous post): Honest Weight -- and the co-op lists essential oils among the product lineup in its wellness department.

But there are probably other options around the area, too.

So, have a suggestion for Kerry? Please share!

Four Seasons and Healthy Living in Saratoga/Wilton stocks them.

Paradise Natural Foods on Western Ave. by Gipp Rd.

Jeans greens

The Greengrocer on Rt.9 in Clifton Park/Halfmoon.

Honest Weight Co-op sells essential oils in various scents, sizes, and at different price points. Once in a while certain oils will go on sale.

I've purchased essential oils from Young Living for years- and love their blends. Locally, I like Uncle Sam's Natural Foods on 4th Street in Troy.

Fallon's Pharmacy in Latham

Uncle Sam's has the best deals on big bottles of essential oils. They started getting a house brand in the larger size and they are pretty affordable.

When I was in massage school, we were taught aromatherapy by a lovely woman named Vicky Gardner Nichols. She's the owner and operator of Victoria's Essentials. She makes pure essential oils, blends, massage/body oils, diffuser scents. All natural.
Here's her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Victorias-Essentials/

the Stram Center in Delmar carries the Snow Lotus brand. Also, Vitamin Shoppe is pretty good for large quantities of basic oils (still probably cheaper online, though)
