Isagenix Essence Essential Oil Review
When I first got into essential oils, I started out using Young Living. I was really interested in their Seed to Seal promise and many of the purity promises they have within their brand. My interest was piqued when I recently found out that Isagenix started selling the Essence line of essential oils. I already order my morning shakes through this brand and typically order my essential oils through Young Living. So when I discovered that the COO from Young Living works for Isagenix now, I knew the oils would be high quality.
We use essential oils all the time for diffusing and for the health and wellness benefits. I love putting peppermint oil on my sore muscles and using other oils when I’m sick to my stomach or trying to prevent a cold. I love the idea of being able to add Isagenix oils to my monthly auto ship order!
My first impressions of the Essence line
I love that there are only 10 oils. I am really into essential oils but it can be very overwhelming and confusing when there are literally hundreds of different oils to choose between with different brands. I like to diffuse, apply topically, and occasionally add oils to my water or recipes so I like that these oils are high quality and rigorously tested. I can trust that they’ll perform.
I opted to get the Essence Experience Pak which contains all of the oils of the Essence Complete Collection, the Isagenix Coconut Application Oil, and Isagenix Cool Mist Diffuser. This was the full experience so I tried everything. Here’s what came in the pack.

Breathe Again vs. R.C. vs. Breathe vs. Airway:
These oils I mostly reach for during cold and flu season and in the winter. Anything with eucalyptus and peppermint really invigorates the senses and clears the sinuses. Each of these formulas are different from each other but they function in similar ways. Anything that offers respiratory support is something we go through like water in the colder months so finding something that is effective but inexpensive is amazing.
Price at wholesale: Breathe Again-10 mL for $26.50/R.C.- 5 mL for $10.50/Breathe- 15 mL for $20/Airway– 15 mL for $17.99
It would be hard to determine exactly how much concentration of each oil is in each bottle for any given brand. I just wrote down the ingredient list in order, which I’m guessing is in order of most to least amount of concentration in each bottle. I like that all the brands I mentioned- Young Living, Doterra, and Isagenix- have rigorous testing on the quality of their oils. Whether it’s a “Seed to Seal” or a “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” oil doesn’t matter to me since I’ve done the research to know that these purity promises are actually trademarked. Meaning, they don’t mean as much as you might think they do. Nobody else besides Doterra can even claim that they’re “CPTG” because they’ve purchased the rights to use that specific name attached to their brand. What really matters is you’re doing the research on each specific brand to know exactly how pure they are, and how committed to being clean they are. I’m satisfied with all three brands in terms of their commitment to quality.
It’s pricey to keep up with a monthly auto ship on an oil company, a shake company, etc. I like that since the quality is there I can justify keeping one monthly auto ship and ordering my morning shakes AND my essential oils through Isagenix. I love that overall their price is cheaper at wholesale than the other popular brands. This makes my life cheaper and easier. It’s about time that someone came into the industry with an oil that compares to the other heavy hitters at a lower price tag.
I hope to see something that dupes Valor in the line at some point. That’s an oil Young Living carries that uses valerian and I love the benefits for relaxation. I would love to see some expansion on the Isagenix Essence Oil line in the future to include some of my favorites like this one.
