You can be assured that these Essential Oils are procured from extremely reliable sources which have been tested and visited over many years. The oils are studiously selected, tested for purity and subject to rigorous quality control standards. They are available in the following sizes: 10ml, 50ml & even 500ml.

An essential oil is a natural product extracted from a single plant species and may be found in the roots, stems, leaves, flowers, or fruits. Now, there are three different methods for removing the oils from the plant. Steam Distillation: The plant is steamed. The lighter chemicals vaporise and the steam is condensed through a cooling process which then generates two products. Essential Oil which has Oil-soluble molecules & Hydrosol which has water-soluble molecules. Rose Water for example.

A process called 'Expression' is used to extract essential oils from the peel of citrus fruits. Expression does not involve heating so oils smell very similar to the fruits from which they come. Some essential oils smell different to the flowers on the plant because the heat of distillation can alter some of the chemicals. The third process of extracting essential oils is 'Supercritical C02 Extraction' in which carbon dioxide is added and eliminated to produce a high-grade extract that is very close to the composition of the natural raw material. 

By the way, did you know that Essential oils are also used by the plants themselves? Naturally occurring essential oils in help ward off infection, humidity control, hormonal effects, wound healing, and attracting or repelling insects, birds, and animals. Also, Essential oils do not feel oily; they are called "oils" because they contain the oil-soluble chemicals in the plant.
