Are your products natural?

Pure Potions products are completely natural and contain only pure plant oils, They are made with jojoba oil as the carrier oil and therapeutic grade essential oils. We do not use any chemicals in our blends. Our products are also gluten free. All of the ingredients for each blend our listed on the product page and the product packaging. We invite you to check them out. If you have any sensitivities or allergies to plants, please read the ingredients before purchasing.

Are your products vegan and cruelty-free?

Our products are completely vegan. They are never tested on animals. Only humans. They end up smelling great.

What types of oils do you use in your products?

Pure Potions is completely committed to using only the highest quality essential and carrier oils available on the market. All of the essential oils we use are therapeutic-grade. We use jojoba oil as the carrier oil for our perfumes. We currently have two suppliers of essential oils: Young Living and doTERRA. There is currently no single supplier available who carries all of the essential oil varieties we use for our blends. Which companies we use for oils is at the discretion of our owner and blend master, Dawn Ressel. She chooses first based on quality and secondarily on availability. We do our best to maintain consistency in our sourcing so that you can rely on our products.

Are your products safe for consumption?

Pure Potions products are intended for external use only and should not be consumed.

Do you offer returns?

We offer returns only on unused products with the safety seal still intact. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to initiate a return. The customer is responsible for return shipping costs. If you would like to try our products before ordering, we highly recommend you order our sampler set to decide which scents best suit you.

What percentage of essential oils does your perfume contain?

Our perfumes contain a high percentage of essential oils to give it the potency and longevity that you would expect from a perfume. Each blend has a slightly different percentage based on the intensity of the oils it contains, but generally speaking, our blends contain about 35-45% essential oils and 55-65% jojoba carrier oil. A carrier oil is needed for essential oils because undiluted essential oils can be too harsh for some people's skin.

Who made your artwork? Can I use it?

The artwork on our site is original and created by Alicia Picard of A Picard Art. We commissioned Alicia to create this artwork for us because there was no existing artwork that captured the essence of all the magickal beings the way we know them.
