    The Baobab Tree!

    May 05, 2014

    I was introduced to baobab oil many years ago, and have always loved the silky feel of it. From the first time I applied the oil to my skin, I've wanted to see a baobab tree. […]

    The Trip of a Lifetime!

    April 07, 2014

    Today is not my usual day. It's the beginning of a month-long distiller trip! Today I will be arriving in Abu Dhabi, one of the seven United Arab Emirates, to visit a frankincense distiller! Not only will I get to meet the people behind the process of producing Frankincense essential oil, but I'll get to see literal mounds of resin! (Can you imagine how aromatic it will be?) […]

    Community Farms in South Africa: A Small Miracle

    February 28, 2011

    We recently received this story about community farms from one of our South African distillers and would love to share it with you! We have a very poor community in Bela Bela, who have quite a lot of land available to them because of the size of their tribal boundaries. (Bela Bela is about fours hours drive from Johannesburg, where our offices are.) About one year ago, the community, represented by Mr. Lelaka, decided to allocate some of the land to growing essential oil crops. Mr. Lelaka contacted us last year to ask for funding and education on farming essential oils. They received a small donation from a private bank investment which allowed them to build a small nursery, clear natural land, and put basic irrigation on the land from a river which flows through it. We were able to fund organic geranium plants to help them get started. We also have joined with them to try to find more funding to expand. We have met with them on numerous occasions (at our offices and on their land) to give advice and educate them on how to grow geraniums successfully. We prepared a 21-page presentation for them, to allow them to use the presentation as a marketing tool to try get funding. They were wanting to expand to alternate crops and to clear more land. […]

    Distiller Spotlight: Florihana in the South of France

    February 10, 2011

    Florihana is a distillery in the south of France. This is their mission statement: "At the foundation of our commitment to create the Florihana distillery were two main aims: respect for nature and development of highly therapeutic certified organic products for aromatherapists." I believe they have accomplished both! Florihana uses organic farming techniques for plants under cultivation. Any wild plants are harvested from sustainable sources with respect to their ecosystems. They have an exclusive distillation process set up, and they use very low temperatures to distill their plants. They include the complete botanical name and chemotype, distillation date and batch number on all their labels. Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) reports are given for every batch on the Florihana website. The only other website I know that does this is Aromatics International, in Montana, USA. […]
