Posted in Essential Oil on 02/15/11

GC report? Why they are important.


Posted in Essential Oil, GC/MS on 12/2/10

  As an aromatherapist and a supplier of essential oils, I have learned that GC/MS reports are invaluable. Pure essential oils are not just preferred, but mandatory to achieve the therapeutic effect I might be looking for. Adulterated oils or perfume oils will not offer therapeutic effects and may, in fact, cause allergies, headaches and chemical sensitivities.

Hydrosols: “Like a fine wine”


Posted in Hydrosol on 09/10/10

  This summer has been fabulous. I had a great experience on a road trip seeking out hydrosol distillers. On part of my journey, I drove North into some remote country, crossed through a gate and entered a beautiful organic farm. Every wild plant on almost 300 acres was special and served its purpose by bringing us treasures of hydrosols. What an amazing experience to see the big copper stills,...
