Probably because packaging costs more for the larger sizes, and maybe sell a bit less than smaller sizes.

I think that it may be the packaging that they use. Because the things they use are glass or plastic that is able to decompose, it might be more expensive to get these things. Also, the oil itself is pretty pricey.
Lol. I don't know that this is an environmentally conscious company. Their packaging is not recycleable, they do not talk about sustainable practices, and some of their products contain carmine--an animal by-product.
You'd think, if not for the environment, then in the spirit of sales they would drop prices for the larger sizes, but apparently not.
I noticed this too, and found it curious.

My calculations show that you are correct for the liquid oil (the smaller size is cheaper by the ounce) but that the stick is a SLIGHTY better deal when you purchase the larger size.
This seems like really faulty pricing to me, unless the smaller size is just meant to draw people in and they're hoping no one notices! :)
