If you're looking for high-quality, therapeutic-grade essential oils, Young Living cannot be beat! They are very popular in the US and have recently opened a branch in Tokyo. Their website is in Japanese, but they have English-speaking representatives in Tokyo. You can see the American website to get an idea of what you're looking at on the Japanese one.
