The Aromatherapist essential oils are derived
from plants cultivated by farmers and processed
by distillers around the world who share our commitment
to the use of ecologically viable methods.
Today we realize that plants are extremely sensitive
to the highly toxic substances used by some farmers
to "protect" the plant in pursuit of increased product yield.
These toxins can produce results ranging from
subtle changes in the plant to actually altering its genetic structure.
Plants are left devitalized and their defence systems weakened.
The lifespan of a perennial may be significantly reduced.
We feel there is no reasonable place for
chemical use in medicinal plant farming.
More important than product yield and larger plants
are concerns for long term effects on soil,
plant biology and the health of other living creatures.
The search for purity and ecological integrity
in the production of essential oils is a task
which requires energy and commitment.
We are convinced that this is the way to secure a place
for aromatherapy in humankind's growing consciousness
of nature and its immense healing powers for years to come.
