If you’re on the lookout for an essential oils brand, and are interested in learning more about Pursonic essenital oils, you’ve come to the right place.
Searching for the perfect essential oils brand for you can be an overwhelming task. With essential oils at the forefront of alternative wellness, there’s a lot of contradicting and confusing information out there. From long blog posts to big companies, we may find ourselves drowning in the hundreds of sites claiming that they know “the best essential oils brand.” But here’s the thing, the essential oils industry is unregulated, which means that the phrase “best essential oils brand” is very subjective. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to take the most searched for and requested essential oil brands and review and rate them a scale of A+-F based on price, selection, and quality.

In this article, I’m tackling Pursonic USA essential oils. But before we get started, you need to have a clear goal in mind. Why do you want to get started with essential oils? Are you interested in making oils a lifelong journey, or do you only want to use them for DIY all-purpose spray?
If you’re not interested in the therapeutic side of oils, then opting for a cheaper not-so-pure brand may be the right choice. But if you want to use oils for headaches, tummy aches, energy, anxious feelings, and sleep—then a brand that has a large selection of top-quality oils is going to be the best choice for you. Now that you have your goal in mind let’s learn about Pursonic USA essential oils.
The Basics: Who is Pursonic USA?
Pursonic is kind of like your cousin who is always changing his mind, career, and home: you never really know where he is, what he’s doing, and what he’s going to be interested in next. Like your cousin, Pursonic has a lot going on: electric toothbrushes, body oils, essential oils, and more. It’s been super tricky to find a description of the company and what their niche/passion is. They were originally only available on Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Wayfair, and some smaller websites but now they have a website (but is really hard to find just via google). To dive a little deeper, let’s look at their price.
Pursonic’s prices are reasonable, but they also don’t offer many single oils besides lavender and peppermint. For lemon, you can only find a 10mL in a kit for $9.99, which is incredibly cheap. Just by looking at the prices, it is making me question their quality. But upfront, the prices are definitely on the lower end of the spectrum.
Lavender: $9.99 for 30 mL *
Peppermint: $9.99 for 30 mL *
*Pursonic does not offer 15mL bottles, only 30mL. For the sake of comparison to other brands, I converted their price to 15mL.
At first glance, it may seem like Pursonic has a wide variety of oils but a little closer look at their 14 oil kit proves otherwise. The kit is filled with oils like mint, peppermint, spearmint, sweet orange, and mandarin – basically all very similar oils for a “variety pack.”
Some of their other kits offer more uncommon oils like ylang-ylang, geranium, and rose, but still for an alarmingly low price. This selection is decent for someone who wants a wide variety of what I call “smell good” oils but not a great choice for those wishing to make oil a lifestyle.
Despite the selection not being fabulous, Pursonic oils are readily available on big store websites like Amazon, Walmart, eBay, and Wayfair, making it easy and accessible for consumers.
Here’s where I see the most problems for Pursonic. On Amazon, in the description for their 20 pack oil kit, they describe eucalyptus as the perfect oil for concentration and optimism; lavender for cognitive focus and alertness; tea tree for mental strength and calmness; rosemary for relieving anxiety. If they even knew the tiniest bit about oils and their benefits, they would know that they got it all wrong!
Lavender, one of the most popular oils, is well-known for its calming properties NOT its cognitive focus and alertness. This is the same for the other oils mentioned. The fact that they don’t know the correct uses of their oils is a huge red flag for me.
In addition to not knowing oils, they also don’t have any quality information listed like sourcing, processing, etc. Knowing that my essential oils brand is transparent about their quality and testing offers peace of mind, especially when I’m using oils on my kids and for therapeutic purposes.
Pursonic Essential Oils Rating
I’m rating Pursonic Essential Oils a D, which means below average and that there are way better companies to choose from. Pursonic is not purely an essential oils brand for starters, and if you want good essential oils, you want a company that lives and breathes oils. Even if that’s not you and you want oils for their fragrance, then there are still better companies out there to choose from.
