Conventionally Cultivated Essential Oils

These High Quality Essential Oils From Artisan Aromatics Are Cultivated And Harvested By Growers Who Are Well Known And Thoroughly Vested. 

The most important aspect for essential oils is where the plant is grown. The best quality essential oil is linked to the land it is grown from.  You want your essential oil to come from its natural location, not grown on a farm in a foreign country.   Soil, climate and hydration all have a huge impact on the quality of essential oils.  These in turn are what give the essential oil its characteristics and fragrance.  Same is true with fine wines.  The location of the vine plays a major impact on the quality of the wine.

Question:  So why purchase a conventionally grown essential oil instead of an organic essential oil?

Answer:  Conventionally cultivated essential oils are slightly less expensive compared to organic essential oils.  Our growers follow organic growing practices, but because they are small, it is not cost effective for them to go through the pricey organic certification process.

Question: Isn’t there a chance that conventionally cultivated essential oils may have pesticides and fertilizers mixed in the essential oil.

Answer:  Our conventional growers are small batch growers that use very little to no pesticides or fertilizers because most of these plants already have a natural pest resistance.  

According to research, If an essential oil is steam distilled, as most are, the molecules from pesticides and fertilizers are too large to be carried by steam.  Plus the heat from the steam process can break down these molecules. 

Citrus essential oils are cold pressed and may contain small traces of these substances if used by the grower, but usually no more than .17%.
