Essential Oils (Aromatherapy Oils) are the highly concentrated, volatile, aromatic essences of plants. The purest essential oils come from carefully cultivated and wild grown plants from climatic and geographic regions throughout the world.
Carrier oils are also referred to as vegetable oils and base oils. They have extensive applications in Aromatherapy because they are used to dilute Essential Oils or absolutes for application. They are also used in the manufacturing of cold-process soaps and for massage by Licensed Massage Therapists. Each Carrier Oil has different properties and the choice of carrier oil can depend on the therapeutic benefit being sought.
All of our oils are 100% pure and natural, of therapeutic grade and free from any chemicals or pesticides. Although all of our products are of premium quality, not all of the oils are certified organics. We have now added an Organic line of Essential Oils and Carrier Oils that are accompanied by authentic certificates, provided by our suppliers, of organic production under strict supervision by internationally recognized certifying bodies.
Steam Distillation: The most common process of extracting an essential oil is by distillation, a process that isolates the aromatic, volatile element of the plant with steam.
Cold Pressed: Expression or cold pressing, is used primarily for citrus fruits like orange and lemon, where the essential oil is obtained in tiny pockets in the peel or rind. Oils extracted by cold pressing are the most volatile of essential oils and can evaporate quickly when exposed to air.
Solvent Extraction: Flowers too delicate to be processed with heat or pressure are soaked in a spirit of solvent that extracts the volatile elements. The solvent is then evaporated at high temperatures, leaving only the most fragrant constituents behind. This process produces what is called an “absolute”.
CO2 Extraction: The CO2 extraction method yields a greater number of aromatic compounds than any other distillation process. In certain conditions at a low temperature Carbon Dioxide or CO2 can be pressurized to become a liquid. This liquid then acts as a solvent and is used to extract the oil from plants. After extraction is completed, the extraction vessel is brought back to normal temperature and the CO2 rapidly converts to gas leaving behind a high quality oil that is free of solvents.
There are many ways that essential oils can be used:
Massages: Massage is one of the most beneficial methods of using essential oils because it combines the therapeutic powers of the essential oil with the benefits of touch therapy.
Inhalation: Inhalation is on of the quickest ways to experience the therapeutic benefits of essential oils. This method is highly beneficial for helping respiratory ailments. Persons with asthma or epilepsy should avoid inhaling essential oil.
Baths: Adding essential oils to a hot, soothing bath can create a relaxing and therapeutic experience.
Essential Oil Diffuser: Diffusers and Aromatherapy go hand-in-hand. Adding essential oils to a diffuser effectively introduces the therapeutic properties and fragrance to any environment.
Compress: Compresses are an effective way to apply essential oils directly to areas where they are needed the most.
Our Essential and Carrier Oils are pure, and in many cases, food grade. However, we do NOT recommend the ingestion of any of our products. They are not FDA or Health Canada approved and some are highly concentrated and have the capacity to cause serious damage if used internally without the necessary expertise required in administering it. This is supported by the International Federation of Aromatherapists that does not recommend ingestion of essential oils unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical aromatherapy as practiced in France.
Many essential oils can cause irritation to the skin. They should be blended in a carrier (vegetable) oil before being applied to the skin. Only Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils can be applied directly to the skin, or ‘neat’.
Essential oils essences are expressed directly from plants or plant parts and are all natural, whereas fragrant oils are manufactured in a lab from different aromatic chemicals.
It is recommended that oils should be stored between 0 and 20 degrees Celsius (room temperature) and out of direct sunlight. Refrigeration after opening is optimal. Our 500-ml sizes are transported in aluminum bottles to prevent breaking and spilling. Because these bottle are lined with epoxy resin, the oils may take on a change to their fragrance if not decanted into dark glass after receiving them. If not immediately decanted, they should be decanted with the top left off for a day or two so that the oil’s scent may rectify itself. On rare occasions, this will not be possible, but the effect of the oil will not be degraded.
