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)

I am Dominican so I totally relate. I have thick curly hair (3c) and some of the hair professionals in this area do wonders with fine curly hair but have no idea what to do with thick (ethnic) hair. For the longest I had to take trips to NYC to get my hair done until I found Islenia (you can find her as "Hair by Islenia" in Facebook).She has been doing my hair for over 10 ears and she is excellent! ...
