“Dropsmith’s incredibly fun and colourful look must not mislead you. There is such an intense source of research in the background a place where we all need a more scientific approach to modern and evolving aromatherapy world. You can follow the exact chemistry of the essential oils you use both by lot analysis as well as the current chemistry of your new blend. Knowing the chemistry of the product is essential in terms of efficacy and safety. It is a great luxury to have access to research on essential oils.”

“What the GC-MC profile of an essential oil means to a modern scientist, Dropsmith means to aromatherapy. Or simply put, I see Dropsmith as a powerful tool to strengthen the evidence-based perspective of aromatherapy in terms of its therapeutic value. In addition to its scientific-medicinal context, it should become the leading global platform for essential oil producers.”

“Dropsmith is a true revelation! I use it to help me make synergistic blends for my apothecary (such as vaginalletes, suppositories and aroma cosmetics) and to check up on safety issues. The simple schematic preview is amazing and gives me a detailed overview of essential oil or blend chemistry as well as a very useful summary of properties and application. It is an extremely beneficial tool for any pharmacist and aromatherapist.”

“Dropsmith is one of my favourite databases for my Essential oil blend workshops, product creations and treatments. You can see what you create, and to what effect the combined oils have. In addition, what cautions the oils have on the page including evidence and research data. I find Dropsmith is a very useful tool and aid for people who want to use essential oils safely, being more effective in their work.”

“Dropsmith is an exceedingly useful tool for a producer. It allows me to keep track of all the differences in the composition of the oils we distill year by year, hence to understand the influence of distillation parameters, climatic and plant conditions on my oils. It allows a more rational and precise evaluation of distillation techniques. And it looks nice too!”
