The organic essential oils that we carry are grown and processed at facilities certified by governmental agencies such as the Department of Agriculture (USDA) via the National Organic Program (NOP), and we are a certified handler of organic oils through the NOP.

This certificate is recognized worldwide, and is useful for those that need to qualify their ingredients as organic while in the process of attaining their own organic certification.
As the demand for high quality, certified organic oils increases, we will keep adding more organic oils to our stock. We strongly support the production and sale of organic essential oils because of the effect of chemicals on our fragile planet. However, the quality of an oil is determined by much more than it being grown certified organic. What also needs to be taken into account is the quality of seeds or cuttings used to start the plants, growing and harvesting methods, distillation process, and post-distillation care.For this reason, we only purchase our oils from growers with a reputation for using ethical growing practices who are skilled at producing high quality oils – whether organically grown or not.
