Essential Oils

Essential oil labels are colour-coded according to the oils’ plant origin, e.g. green for herb, orange for citrus, brown for tree/bark, ruby for spice/exotic and mauve for flower, a valuable aide-de-memoir when blending. Labels also show the country of origin and the latin name of the plant so that, because our oils are sourced from single countries of origin and, in almost all cases, single plant species, you know exactly the species and origin.

We always work hard to source high quality oils at competitive prices from our various contacts in different countries, which we have built up over twenty years. This, plus working hard on the business front to keep overheads low, means we are able to offer high quality at lower prices than is commonly available.

Most of the time we have oils in stock which don’t make it onto the price list, so if you’re looking for something unusual do ask as we may have it in stock. If not, we will be happy to order it specially for you, which will usually take one to two weeks, depending on the supplier. Likewise we are always happy to give a competitive quote for larger quantities than those listed.

Hydrosols/Floral Waters

Floral waters, also known as hydrosols, hydrolats, or distillates, are valuable therapeutic tools for the aromatherapist. A product of the steam which gently passes through the plant material when an essential oil is distilled, hydrolats embody many of the medicinal virtues of both the plant and the essential oil. (Beware of inferior floral waters synthesised from essential oils and distilled water, or made merely from synthetically perfumed water. These will generally have a much less subtle aroma with far fewer notes).

Frankincense Somalia (distilled England)€4.75€8.95€14.95
Lavender organic France€5.95€10.95€17.95€26.50
Neroli (orange blossom) distilled England € 6.45€ 13.45€ 23.45
Rose Bulgarian€ 6.45€ 12.95€ 19.95€ 31.50
Witchhazel organic€ 7.65€ 17.45€ 27.95

Hydrolats are especially pleasant in the bath (use about 25ml) giving the bathwater a luxurious silky feel  with an aroma and therapeutic properties similar  to the essential oil, but more gentle on the skin. However, hydrolats are most widely used as beautifully aromatic skin toners.

Most of our floral waters are organic, and all are the product of distillation, except for jasmine and honeysuckle which, though they smell wonderful, are not available as true hydrolats.
