Essential oils have become a thing over the last several years. Users claim that the oils help them with anxiety and negative emotions, even touting their benefits when sick. It’s enough to say that essential oils are a big business now, including through multi-level marketing (MLM) companies.
Aldi has been selling essential oils and accessories for years. For a long time, the grocer sold them under its Welby label, reserved for medical products and accessories. However, Aldi now appears to be selling them under its Huntington Home label.
What We Know:
Both Huntington Home Essential Oils and the Huntington Home Ultrasonic Diffuser are Aldi Finds, which means they’re only in stores for a short time. Aldi receives a single shipment, and once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Huntington Home Essential Oils (Product Code: 13795) are $3.99 for a bottle. While you might do better buying them in bulk online, this isn’t a bad price for a single bottle, especially compared to MLM prices. It’s also a dollar less than the Welby versions from 2019. These can be used in diffusers, the bath or shower, or used for massage or skin oil. According to Aldi, these are “derived from 100% all-natural plant sources such as flowers, leaves or roots.”
Aldi is selling five kinds of essential oil in 15-mL bottles: Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Calm Muscle, or Sleep. Aldi also sells a 4-ounce bottle of Coconut Oil.
Of note: Aldi is also selling Huntington Home Essential Oil Spray (Product Code: 700003) for $4.99. These 2.4 ounce bottles come in the same varieties of essential oil as the bottles.
The Huntington Home Ultrasonic Diffuser (Product Code: 13814) is $14.99. That’s the same price as the Welby diffuser from 2019 and is less than most ultrasonic diffusers I’ve seen online. It comes with a plastic measuring cup. Available colors include doeskin, whisper white, wet weather or black. Aldi notes that “adding a few drops of essential oil to the diffuser adds a pleasant aroma and health related benefits to the mist.”
According to Aldi, features include:
- the ability to produce mist for up to 4 hours on high or 8 hours on intermittent
- two mist settings: continuous and intermittent
- a white LED light
- auto shut off
- 100 mL capacity
What We Don’t Know:
The biggest question is who makes these. We don’t know who manufactures the oils, and we don’t know who makes the diffuser. These are potential question marks, especially for essential oil users who are particularly concerned with sourcing. Aldi tends to be secretive about suppliers, so while you can always reach out to Aldi and ask, we can’t guarantee you’ll get much of an answer.
