21 Drops: An Innovative New Essential Oil Company

by Andrea on November 15, 2010

21 Drops essential oilsCary Caster, an Aromahead Institute graduate, has created an innovative and exciting new essential oil company called 21 Drops.

The 21 Drops website’s homepage begins with this:

“21 Drops is a thoroughly modern line of therapeutic grade essential oils. Our artisan blends are 100% natural, organic or wild crafted. Tried, tested and incredibly effective. Designed for use anytime, anywhere. 21 Drops. Aromatherapy like you’ve never known it.”

When you click on the 21 Drops “About” page, you find this wonderful expression of who they are:

“Exotic in origin, ancient in derivation, proven in application. At 21 Drops, we’ve taken what we already know, have known for millennia, about the healing properties of plants, and combined it with what we know about our bodies, hearts and minds. The result? Aromatherapy in a little black dress.

Beautifully portable, reassuringly time-honored, incredibly effective. With plenty of science behind it.

“From Hippocrates himself, who mixed powder from the bark and leaves of willow trees to cure headaches, pain and fever–his discovery would lead to the formulation, some two thousand years later, of modern day aspirin. To French chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse who stumbled across the medicinal properties of lavender oil when treating his burned arm–giving rise to our current use of therapeutic essentials.

“As for a history of plants and their essences–well that speaks for itself. Three Wise Men brought them for Christmas. Herodotus documented their use throughout the Arabian Peninsula. And the ancient Egyptians buried 50 alabaster jars of them with their favorite pharaoh. In fact, references to plant medicine are found as far back as recorded history, painted on the walls of the Lascaux caves.

“So with those credentials, why be shy? At 21 Drops, we state our intentions upfront, on every perfectly designed bottle. To motivate and invigorate, enhance and support, balance and soothe, digest, decongest or just rest. Our oils have been created with a commitment in mind, to counteract the depleting effects of our everyday lives. We’d like to think nature gives us perfect ingredients.”

As you might have guessed, they offer 21 blends, all in travel size roll on glass bottles. Jojoba and essential oil blends for headaches, anxiety, pain, digestion, sleep and more. Take a tour of the 21 Drops website.

I believe they’re already diluted in a carrier oil, that’s why they can be applied to the skin.

This is true!

I’m confused. Everywhere I’ve read, we’re told that essential oils should never be applied directly to the skin but should rather be added to carrier oils… and yet, at this site (and others I’ve been to) they recommend the following:

“Apply this blend to your temples and wrists for quick absorption. Roll it onto the meridian point at your collarbone to ease tension and stress, and the front of your neck to support blood flow to and from the brain. Dab it under your nose to give the chemical messengers in this blend a direct path through the nasal cavity to the limbic system. Inhale deeply, repeatedly, throughout the day.”

Why is there such conflicting information out there?

Thanks (in advance) for the help, much appreciated!

The blends at 21 drops are all in jojoba at a very safe dilution. Essential oils can be used directly on the skin at times, for example a drop of lavender on a bee sting does not need to be diluted.
