Auroma Quality

AUROMA Essential Oils are the highest quality essential oils available in the world today. Each oil is from an individual farmer and from a particular year’s harvest. As AUROMA knows each of the Farmers, they guarantee the authenticity of each oil. Just to be certain, they analyze each oil using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS technology, which can detect impurities to one part per billion. Yes! AUROMA represents the best there is in Essential Oils. We can supply the following documentation: Certificates of Analysis and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  7. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.

Uses

  • Hair Care: A major use of West Indian bay leaf oil is in hair lotions. It was originally produced by distilling Rum over the leaves of racemose, but it is now formulated by blending the essential oil with alcohol and rum. It is said to restore damaged hair and encourage hair growth. See “Cautions.”
  • Skin Care: West Indian Bay is extensively used as a fragrance ingredient in creams, lotions, soaps, detergents, and perfumes. See “Cautions.”
  • Just to smell: You can enjoy the aromatherapy of your favorite Essential oil or Blend without even taking it out of the bottle. Keep a bottle in your purse or your car. Simply open-up and smell. This can be particularly helpful during times of stress.
  • In a Diffuser: Using a diffuser is an easy way to permeate your chosen space. Diffuse your chosen essential oil. Some say that Bay West Indies encourages, creativity, performance, and stimulation.
