All of our oils are 100% pure essential oils. As the use of aromatherapy increases, the quality of oils available is often sacrificed & adulteration of oils has become common. In seeking the most healing and beneficial essential oils, it is necessary to have awareness of the production methods & sources of each oil.
Our oils are organically certified whenever possible & are always free from pesticides and chemical additives. It is important to understand that just because an oil is labeled pure does not imply that it has therapeutic value. Our therapeutic grade essential oils are always from low temperature, first distillation: this helps ensure that they maintain the most therapeutic properties. However, only a chemical analysis can completely determine the therapeutic value of an essential oil. All of our oils are have been carefully sourced from the farm to the bottle. Each batch is laboratory tested to ensure the highest purity and quality.
Due to the high quantity of plant material required for making essential oils (e.g. 5,00 lb. of rose petals = 1 lb. of essential oil), we support only sustainable practices. All of the farmers & workers who help create our oils are paid livable wages to support global fair trade.
Aromatherapy is one of the oldest forms of natural medicine. For more than 6,000 years essential oils, the highly concentrated life force of plants, have been used around the world to heal physical & psychological diseases.
In the spirit of ecological conservation, it is important to understand the potency of essential oils. It takes very large quantities of plants to make even one drop of essential oil. To give some perspective on how potent essential oils are, 1 drop of essential oil = 30 cups of herbal teas in concentration. Due to this potency, simply smelling or diffusing oils is a highly activated way in which they can enter the body. By smelling the oils their essence is able to pass through the blood brain barrier & move directly to the limbic brain where emotions, memory & regulatory functions are seated. This creates an immediate shift in the entire physical body & also brings deep transformation to the mind & spirit.
When using oils directly on the skin for healing or other purposes, it is recommended to use the sparingly or to dilute in a carrier such as organic almond or jojoba oil. Essential oils, when applied to the skin directly, penetrate through the pores, enter into the blood stream, affect adjacent organs & circulate instantly to where they are most needed in the body.
Keep in mind that essential oils are very concentrated plant constituents possessing highly potent medicinal properties. They are powerful healing tools offered to us by Nature. Please use them with loving intention and respect.
