Bloggers talk up the oils, link to sales pages, and pocket a cut of the proceeds. Essential oils would be a good candidate for an affiliate program, because you need something you can sell at huge markups, so that the affiliates can get a decent cut of each sale. Oils would be good there because there are no standards for purity or quality; a few drops of cheap essence in quite a bit of cheap filler oil is really hard to distinguish (especially over the internet) from genuinely high-quality high-purity product.

That's been a big issue for me - the difficulty in really knowing what you're getting. Every company has their own catchy quality assurance acronym, but since there's no blanket testing authority, it's kind of meaningless. I would feel a lot more confident if I knew for sure where to get high quality, completely pure oils.
