What does ‘organic’ mean?
In the world of cosmetics and health, the definition of ‘organic’ is quite fluid, which can in turn, create quite some confusion for consumers. For this reason, we want to clarify what we mean by ‘organic’ in our Organic Pure Essential Oils is all about the production method.
By this, we mean that the plants that are used to extract the oils from have been grown following the appropriate measures to preserve the health and fertility of the soil; largely accomplished by not using toxic pesticides, herbicides or other forms of harmful fertilisers. Inside our products, we do not use ingredients like parabens or additives, and keep synthetic preservatives to a minimum.

Why choose organic essential oils?
There are two main reasons why you may want to choose organic essential oils. However, we do want to stress that this is purely a personal choice!
Reducing health risk: If you are particularly concerned about chemicals, toxins and lowering your health risk, using essential oils with no indicators of harmful chemical residue might be something less to worry about.
Lowering environmental impact: As organic products do not use detrimental chemicals and toxic materials in their production process, choosing organic essential oils can be worthwhile in pursuing a lifestyle with minimal environmental impact.
Tip: Whenever finishing up a product, whether it’s a bottle of pure essential oil or body oil, there is always a way to recycle it or find it a second life!
