What is Eden’s Garden?
Eden’s Garden is a comprehensive aromatherapy company was initiated by founder, Grace Martin, in the early 2000s. With over a decade of work history in working and living a more natural way of life, Grace wanted to bring a sustainable as well as an affordable methodology of aromatherapy to the masses.
As mentioned above, Eden’s Garden was founded in the early 2000s but did not take off until almost a decade later. The founder spent many hours working for other natural based companies and traveling the world looking for a way to serve her customers first without sacrificing on quality and putting her people before profit.
In her words, she states, “My dream was to build a business that valued people over profit and dealt honestly while offering direct access to the many benefits of essential oils.” 
In 2009, when the essential oil industry really began to take off, Grace began selling her own starting with lavender and eucalyptus. Today, Eden’s Garden has become one of the top manufacturers and distributors of essential oils including single oils, blends and an array of products that sprung from her original passion of meeting people’s needs with where they are at.
Eden’s Garden operates on a five standard business model that is a part of their quality assurance program. The company’s attention lies constantly and consistently on effectiveness, dedication, education, natural sources, and safety.
When Grace started Eden’s Garden, people over profit was and still is a pillar in the foundational structure of EG and it’s operating systems. This is why Eden’s Garden customer service is always on point and goes above and beyond what is necessary to satisfy its consumers.
If a customer comes to EG with an issue around an experience they had with an oil, the team of EG takes time to investigate and get to the bottom of issue to reach a desirable resolution in an effort to ensure their customers are satisfied as well as to maintain the integrity of their products and the company.
Eden’s Garden Essential Oil Quality
Eden’s Garden takes great care and measure to produce ethical, sustainable, pure and affordable oils to their consumers.
While Eden’s Garden does not manufacture or process their oils directly, they do take care to purchase from where the oil is extricated. The company’s team of buyers visits the manufacturers often to maintain a high level of quality control. No pesticides, synthetic chemicals, herbicides, GMOs or harmful chemicals are ever used during any stage of the growing or distillation process. 
Eden’s Garden also puts all of their oils through a GC/MS testing performed by an independent, third-party consultant.
The testing is defined as, “GC/MS stands for Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometry. In simple terms, a GC/MS separates an essential oil into individual components. The oil is vaporized upon entry into the device, and the oil passes through a column assisted by a carrier gas (usually helium or hydrogen). The column itself sits within an oven; here change in heat over time is managed. Different chemical compounds react at different speeds within the column, and this information is captured on the Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometry.” 
Eden’s Garden not only collects its oil from indigenous plants and implements third-party testing but none of their products contain any pesticides and are all organic. The company also does not participate in any kind of animal testing and guarantees all of their products are cruelty-free.
EG’s website states, “We do not add any bases, carriers, kinds of paraffin, additives, etc to any of our oils. No pesticides, synthetic chemicals, herbicides, GMO’s, harmful chemicals or fertilizers are ever used during any stage of the growing or distillation process. We diligently guarantee that all USDA food/product safety guidelines are followed by our suppliers.” 
Eden’s Garden also prides themselves on while having a solid relationship with their MLM essential oil counterparts, being an MLM was not part of Martin’s vision for her company.
Martin wanted to create a company where her consumers could order, communicate, and rely directly on her and her staff. Martin states, “And although we are proud of our solid relationships with other essential oil companies, we prefer to cut out the middleman. We hope to develop strong connections with each and every one of our customers by communicating and selling directly.” 
Best Essential Oils from Eden’s Garden
Let’s take a look at some of the top-selling essential oils available through Eden’s Garden. One of their best-selling oils is their lavender. Actually, Eden’s Garden offers four different types of lavender which are a unique feature to an essential oil manufacturer. While all varieties of their lavender are popular sellers, let’s look at Spike Lavender
Lavender is a plant that grows approximately three feet in height and is an evergreen plant with beautiful, pale purple flowers. It is the flowers that are steam distilled to get the beautiful calming effects lavender offers. However, there are a variety of lavender plants containing different levels of varying properties, thus changing the users’ benefits of the oil.
Spike Lavender is the lavender that stands out the most of the four Edens Garden offers.
It is described on the website as, “It’s a bottle of you’re okay and everything is fine.” With its high percentage of Linalool, Spike Lavender is also often used for its stress relieving, pain reducing, and anti-inflammatory properties. The aroma of Spike Lavender is a combination of both traditional Lavender, and the sharp, medicinal, camphoraceous aroma of Eucalyptus. 
These constituents are often likened to oils such as Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Ravintsara, and have similar benefits, such as helping to relieve coughs, clear congestion, and promote easy breathing. 
This lavender not only has the capability to trigger peace and calm but because of its chemical properties containing high levels of Cineole and Camphor, it makes a fantastic antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. This is perfect for headaches, minor cuts, and scrapes as well as anxiety and restlessness.
Lemon essential oil is just that, it is essential. This oil is so versatile and its uses are plentiful. Edens Garden has pure lemon essential oil along with lemon basil, lemon eucalyptus, lemon myrtle, and lemon tea tree oil.
From this list alone, you can see that lemon is an incredibly versatile oil and one of the main reasons it is such a popular seller. Lemon is used for uplifting your mood by way of diffusing, giving your metabolism a jump start on the day by adding a drop to your morning water.
Side note – Eden’s Garden does not claim to have any ingestible essential oils as most manufacturers do not outwardly encourage due to liability. As a reviewer for these oils, I have put a single drop, two at most of peppermint oil, and lemon oils in my water without any side effects. This is a personal choice to be made and to include your physician if you have any questions or concerns.
It also makes a powerful cleaning agent so if chemicals are not an option for your, Eden’s Garden essential lemon oil is.
The lemon oil sourced by Eden’s Garden is collected from the 20-foot-tall lemon trees in Italy. Once the lemons have been gathered, the peel of the lemon is cold pressed to extract the oil.
Did you know there are more than 700 types of Eucalyptus in Australia alone?! 
With so many to choose from, Martin started with just one type of eucalyptus but has now expanded their selection to the three that have the most medicinal properties for respiratory issues.
These eucalyptus oils are high in a property called Cineole. Cineole is a liquid terpene compound found in several essential oils and noted for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. The aroma is camphor that has been utilized in vapor rubs and salves for decades.
Eden’s Garden offers Eucalyptus Globulus, Eucalyptus Radiata and Eucalyptus Smithii. While all similar in properties, the three are cherished for primarily their differing aromas.
In general, Eucalyptus Globulus is the most popular of the Eucalyptus oils in aromatherapy because of its high cineole content and traditional Eucalyptus aroma.  This has the strongest aroma and is the most aggressive of the eucalyptus oils.
Eucalyptus Radiata is the middle of the road oil with a sweeter aroma and less striking to your olfactory system than the eucalyptus globulus. It has more fruity notes and traditional aroma of the eucalyptus scent most of us are accustomed to.
Eucalyptus Smithii has less than the 1.8-cineole making it the less aggressive of the eucalyptus. Its scent is described as having a medicinal aroma that is the cornerstone of its scent, but what makes it unique from other Eucalyptus oils is its spicy, earthy, woodsy character. 
Tea tree oil is revered as one of the best natural antiseptics. It’s purifying and healing properties allow it to be a mainstay in any household first aid kit.
It is important to note that while it is called the ‘tea tree’, it is not to be confused with the tea leaves used to make black, green and oolong tea.
First named and described in 1770 by Captain Cook, Tea Tree was originally brewed as a tea and had long been used for medicinal purposes by indigenous tribes. 
Tea tree oil also goes by melaleuca and has a papery-white bark with evergreen-like needles (think Rosemary needles) that are steam-distilled to extract the oil. Eden’s Garden buyers go to the wet, lowlands of Australia where the 10-20-foot-tall tea trees are cultivated and harvested for the precious, clear essential oil.
Personally, I use EG’s tea tree oil neat. Neat is a fancy way of saying straight or pure and basically means pure or undiluted.
If I have a bug bite or a cut, I take a cotton swab and apply it directly to the irritation without experiencing any pain or stinging. Everyone is different so be sure to do a small skin patch prior to applying on any irritation.
It also works great as a natural deodorant, insect repellent, getting rid of nail fungus and fighting acne.
Eden’s Garden Tea Tree oil is one of the purest on the market as well as very affordable. With these two highlights along with tea tree’s lengthy list of benefits, it is easy to see why this is one of Eden’s Gardens biggest sellers.
Tea tree oil is one oil that should not be ingested and is considered poisonous if ingested. This oil is for topical use only!
Of course, in sweet Eden’s Garden nature, Martin gives you not just one orange essential oil to choose from but five. These include sweet orange, tangerine, mandarin, clementine, and blood orange.
The types of oranges do not differ property-wise very much so it comes down to personal aroma preference.
Before diving into the details of sweet orange, the properties of citrus orange are pertinent enough to mention as it is more than just a pretty smelling essential oil.
Eden’s Garden description of their essential orange oils puts it perfectly as stating, “Orange oils have a high limonene content, making them great antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral agents. A good choice in making homemade cleaners and disinfecting sprays. These oils are also known for being anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and helping with an array of digestive issues. Furthermore, being an immune-stimulant, orange oils are supportive of a healthy immune system and overall wellbeing. What’s more, orange oils are wonderful antidepressants.” 
In reviewing the five different orange citrus scents, sweet orange is well very true to its name, it smells sweet. Sweet orange seems to have the most equal balance of sweet with a little bit of tang like a traditional smelling orange would have.
It does not have any sour or sharp notes that can create a bit of zing it’s scent and almost smells more of orange candy. Sweet orange is something you can diffuse alone for a soft and sweet wake up or refresh your house after a night of entertaining and cooking.
The amazing thing about sweet orange is it is highly versatile in blending with other essential oils. Sweet orange goes well with lavender for a more relaxing scent or you can pep up your orange with lemon essential oil or peppermint for a more invigorating aroma.
Upon reflection, Eden’s Garden is one of those essential oil companies whose founder is passionate about what she believes in and it clearly carries over into the process and products produced for consumers.
It is rare to find a company that dedicates a portion of its resources not to just profit but to the research and travel into what they are selling as well as keeping a team of dedicated staff to ensure customer satisfaction.
Eden’s Garden has created a beautiful space for people from all walks of life to be able to affordably introduce the wonderful world of essential oils into their lives.
