Four important aspects of choosing quality essential oils and hydrosols:
1. Essential oils and hydrosols should be distilled from plants that are USDA Certified Organic, wildcrafted, ecologically ethical. As our website is completed we will list one of these for each oil and hydrosol. We will also cite the country and method of distillation. If you have any questions before the website is complete, feel free to contact us!
Every essential oil and hydrosol listed as organic has been grown, harvested, distilled and handled according to certifying standards of USDA/NOP or similiar governing authority appopriate for the country they are from. (For example, our tea tree and eucalyptus are certified by Australian Organic authorities.)
Ecologically ethical/biodynamically farmed essential oils come from farms that are committed to being chemical and pesticide free. The are organic quality but are not certified organic. In some developing countries there is not an organic certification process available. Biodynamic farmers are committed to naturally rotating and sustaining healthy soil practices that are in the long term healthier for everyone.
Some of our essential oils are Wildcrafted, distilled from plants that grow in their natural habitat or ecosystem, far away from any pesticides or artificial fertilizers. These are often our favorite oils as they are grown in their natural habitat for their species. Some of our healthiest, finest oils and hydrosols worldwide come from wildcrafted herbs and native resins.
Occasionally an oil is listed as conventionally farmed. They are selected from conventional farms only after a very careful screening process.
