Organic essential oils are extracted from plants grown on land free of any artificial chemicals (so no pesticides or herbicides). Superior soil management results in lands with far less soil erosion and waste. The fertility of organically managed soil also possesses higher levels of micro-nutrients and minerals which find their way into the crops.The result is organic essential oils contain higher levels of active constituents and this unique natural chemistry results in essential oils usually possessing very different odour profiles to the same essential oil grown using conventional farming methods. Organic farming is responsible farming. Every effort is made to preserve and encourage insect and animal wildlife on the land and in the surrounding lands as well.
