A pure essential oil is 100% true to the plant from which it is sourced . It is a pure plant extract; a volatile liquid taken from a single botanical source mostly extracted by steam distillation. A fragrant oil is made by blending synthetic chemical compounds in a laboratory in an endeavor to duplicate the scent of the flower not of the pure essential oil. The end result is an oil which is not recognized or used by those seeking to practice the principles of Aromatherapy.
Essential oils are aromatic extracts from specific plant parts such as petal, heartwood, peel, stem etc…. There is only a very small amount of oil in the plant part from which the oil is taken. Some oils such as Eucalyptus produce a high yield of oil whereas Rosa Damascena (Rose) requires 30 rose heads to produce 1 drop of pure essential oil. Hence the cost of pure Rose makes it an investment and a worthwhile one at that.
Other factors which contribute to the final delivery and price of a pure essential oils include cultivation, farming methods, distillation and finally storage.
Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids and very potent and are therefore not recommended to be used directly on the skin. Cold pressed oils are the natural carriers for pure essential oils and can be massaged into the skin in the correct dosage.

Even though all our oil qualify as food grade oils, we are not in the food and flavour industry therefore cannot recommend the dilutions required for cooking purposes. Given we are TGA listed and regulated by the Australian government we are not in a position to recommend the ingestion of any oils.

The lifespan of an essential oil varies as oxygen, heat and light affect the overall degradation of the oil so storage is critical to its preservation. For example, Orange oxidizes very quickly and has a shelf life of about 18-24 months while Patchouli which is thick and viscose gets better with age. All In Essence pure essential oils have expiry dates recorded on the bottle. Despite this date use your own judgment before discarding an expired oil. You just may be discarding a perfectly good oil which has matured over time!
