Shopping - Quick Guide

Online Shopping Overview

Shopping online with Essential Oils Direct is a lot like shopping at a retail store. You browse through our products for the items you'd like. We stock essential oils, carrier oils and a large range of aromatherapy  and complementary health products.

Once you decide what you would like, you put them in your online shopping basket, and then when you have chosen everything you require, complete your purchase at the checkout area. The only difference is you can browse our store 24 hours a day - 7 days a week. And unlike a retail store you won't have to look for a parking space or fight your way through crowds of shoppers. That's one of the great advantages of internet/ mail order shopping.

Additionally, at the checkout, we provide options for leaving the goods somewhere else in case you are unavailable when our courier arrives. This could be a neighbour or safe place. Or you could simply provide a work address when ordering.

Making your product selections

So to start shopping, the first thing you do is search the Essential Oils Direct online shop for the items you'd like. To start browsing click on the "SHOP/Products" link. As you view each category and its products you'll see the "add to basket" button. Once you've found a product you require, add it to your shopping basket by clicking on the "add to basket" button.

Just like in a retail store, the shopping basket is a holding place for your items until you are ready to purchase them. You can view the contents of your basket at any time by clicking on the 'View Basket' link on your shopping page. And, just like a retail store, you can remove items from your basket should you change your mind.

When you are ready to checkout

When you have finished adding items. Click on the "Basket/Checkout" button in the main menu OR the 'Go to Checkout' button at the side of each product. Then you will be able to view your basket one last time to check all the products in your basket are correct. Once you've confirmed your selections and checked your basket, you proceed to the final ordering stage by clicking the 'Checkout' button.
