Essential Oils/Aromatherapy

 

 

Our Essential Oils are from one of the oldest and well known Herbal Pharmacies, since the early 1900 established as an Herb Company.

These essential oils are volatile, fragrant and 100% pure aromatic plant oils with no extenders or alcohol added, They are very concentrated and should be used with caution. They may cause skin irritation if used directly on the skin. We do not recommend the internal use of any oil as some are toxic if taken in excess. Keep them at all times out of reach for children.

Essential Oils are not formulations. They are materials produced in the case of true essential oils, by distillation with water steam from the oil containing plant materials. After condensation the water and oil phases separate.

The cold-pressed (expressed) citrus oils such as bergamot, lemon, grapefruit, lime, (expressed, not distilled), tangerine etc., some of which you buy from us, are commonly lumped with the essential oils but technically they are not, as they include non-volatile components. These are produced by expression (pressing) of the peels.
