Bringing the Benefits of Essential Oils to Australia

Meet Merrilea Philips - Oil’d It Founder

My passion for the benefits of essential oils began with a friend's invitation to an essential oil party. We were astounded by the education we received and the extent of the benefits found in these oils. From that moment on, I was hooked and wanted to learn more.

See how Oil'd It evolved from here

Fast forward to my birthday in that same year, when I was gifted (by my beautiful daughter) the chance to attend a soap making class. Soap Making was on my bucket list of things I wanted to learn and, again, I was blown away by what I learned and the role essential oils can play in our health and wellbeing.

I became obsessed with finding ways to incorporate essential oils into our daily lives! From oil blend products to roller bottles, my mind was activated, always coming up with different applications and even activities that could benefit from the extra benefits essential oils can give.


There were many nights when I just couldn't get to sleep (yes, there is an oil for that - Vetiver) because I was constantly thinking of combining this oil with that to formulate something powerful.

Of course this obsession only grew, as they do, and by Christmas time my workroom had been transformed into an essential oil laboratory.


I was combining oils and adding fragrances to everything; creating customised essential oil products as gifts for my family and friends. Each one was formulated to the individual, based on their gender, age group, skin type, or specific issues I knew they had. 


The Christmas message that year was simple...


“I made it, I Oil'd it, Try it.”

They did. And they loved it.

And that is when Oil'd It was born.

Oil'd It Brand Journey

Oil'd It brand

This dedication to essential oils and their healing benefits led me to pursue more education and classes. I experimented with different essential oils and blends to determine what worked best for specific issues and skin types.


Enthusiasm continued to overflow about what I was creating so our beautiful logo was the next addition. Truly a family affair, my daughter's mother-in-law, a graphic designer, created a number of logo designs for me to choose from. The brief was for it to be timeless, but with an industrial, hipster look that is reflective of the natural elements we work with. She must be a genius, because with that concoction of conflicting descriptors, she managed to capture it, as well as the hand-made essence of our brand.


This passion for essential oils has driven us to create products that make a genuine difference in people's lives. We strive to provide education around the value of essential oils and share our experiences, ensuring that you too can enjoy the benefits of essential oil products. 

Join us on this journey, and together we can explore the endless possibilities of essential oils.
