Why Choose Organic?

As a company operated by herbalists, we are huge supporters of organic farming and organic oils. The batch number on the label of our finished product traces the source of our ingredients back to the original farm it was sourced from. 

Organic means that the products have no hidden synthetic ingredients, do not contain genetically modified organisms (GMO's) and the manufacturing facilities have passed certification inspections. Organic farmers work to create a balanced and sustainable farming system and have a concern for the future of the land on which they farm.

Organic farming produces herbs and plants that are free of pesticides, herbicides and their residues. Extracting essential oils from modified or chemically treated plants can produce essential oil with traces of these elements and less than pure results. To be truly effective, essential oils must be absolutely pure and 100% natural. Non organic, synthetic, adulterated or improperly distilled oils, although less expensive, will not provide the same desirable effects and may even have adverse effects. Without knowing the source, non organic essential oils may contain many neutral and unnatural additives.
Another important feature of using organic plants is that the plants grow freely without the aid of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Some of the important constituents found in plants are naturally produced by the plant to protect itself from pests and other environmental stressors. Many of these defense mechanisms they produce are the essential oils themselves! In light of this, it can be argued that chemical and pesticide-aided plants need not be as self reliant and may not produce the same constituents. In addition, organic soil has been shown to provide more nutrients to the plant, and much is being written in the press about the vitality of organic plants.
Organic farming is gentler on the environment, encourages a diverse habitat for birds and animals, protects the quality of water, provides a safer workplace for farmers and produces plants that offer the natural full spectrum of healing constituents. Organic farming encourages farmers to take an active role in the quality of their crops and farmers are rewarded with premium prices for their crops.
