The LorAnn Tradition Since 1962

World-wide supplier of the finest flavorings, essential oils, and specialty ingredients since 1962.

The year 2012 marked LorAnn Oils’ 50th year as a manufacturer/distributor of premium flavorings and essential oils.

My grandfather, Pharmacist O.K. Grettenberger, founded LorAnn Oils in 1962 and named the company in honor of his wife, Laura, and their only daughter, Ann.

Originally, LorAnn Oils bottled and distributed about 8 to 10 core essential oils such as peppermint and clove and distribution was limited to pharmacies. Over the years, the business has expanded its product offerings and we now sell to a wide variety of retailers, manufacturers, health practitioners and home consumers. Today, the company services over 30,000 customers in 25 countries.

LorAnn is known for concentrated, professional strength flavorings and essential oils, but the LorAnn product line encompasses a variety of candy making and baking supplies in addition to our many flavoring options: Super-Strength Flavors, Premium Vanilla Extracts, Vanilla Bean Paste, Bakery Emulsions and the Flavor Fountain line of flavorings for frozen yogurt and ice cream. Nearly all food products are certified kosher, without added sugar, and gluten-free, and are available in retail and bulk sizes.  

LorAnn also carries an extensive selection of spa and soap crafting products for both the professional and home crafter.

Product quality and prompt customer service are the hallmarks of LorAnn Oils. Our employees take great pride in their work, and satisfaction of efficiently serving the needs of so many diverse customers. (Most orders ship within 48 hours of receipt despite LorAnn’s old-fashioned no minimum order policy!)


LorAnn Oils remains a family owned and operated business focused on providing customers
with the best in quality products and service. We welcome the opportunity to expand this family of customers. Thank you
for your patronage, your trust and your insistence on buying the best!

Yours truly,

John Grettenberger
