I have been a long time consumer of Annapurna Aroma essential oils.  I have purchased and loved the quality and integrity of the oils.  I have personally used Lemongrass, French basil, Corn-mint and Blue Chamomile.  On an energetic level the oils provide me with energy, clarity and peace of mind.  The aroma of the oils immediately makes me think of purity.  The oils have always been consistent and never appeared to smell off or oxidized.  As a company, I love the transparency and the ability to communicate easily.  Every question that I ever presented to the company was addressed in a timely manner.  May this company continue to move in a positive direction and may their oils help those that are in need of emotional support and wellbeing.

“I’ve been working with Prasun Satyal for many years now originally buying their beautiful blue chamomile! I’ve purchased many other oils from them over the years because their company is trustworthy and they care about the quality of their oils.”
