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

  • 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.
  • As a Natural Perfume: Dab a couple drops of your most aromatic Essential Oils or Blend onto your wrists, in the same way you might use perfume. Do a patch test first before putting any Essential Oil Blend directly on your skin. See “Cautions.”
  • In a Diffuser: Bring the Outdoors Indoors, particularly with Pine Essential Oil. Using a diffuser with Pine is an easy way to make your space smell wonderful, while using aromatherapy to revitalize and purify your indoor space. Pine Oil is useful to relieve nervous exhaustion, mental and physical fatigue.
  • As a Room Spray: Bring the Outdoors Indoors. Fill a 4-fluid ounce glass mist spray bottle with water and add your Essential Oil or Blend. Tighten the cap, shake well before using and spray the mist into the air. As the air freshener ages, the sent improves and becomes stronger. Spray around your home, your office, your clothes, your clothes, your pets, etc. Pine Oil is useful to relieve nervous exhaustion, mental and physical fatigue.
  • In Meditation: Pine Essential Oil may be used to clear a meditation space, especially if the room or space has not been devoted exclusively to meditation.
  • In Steam inhalation: Add 10 drops of your Pine Essential Oil to a bowl of hot water. Drape a towel over your head, clothes your eyes, and inhale the vapors. 
  • In a Closet or Drawer. Put 10 drops of your favorite Essential Oil or Blend on a cotton ball and place it inside a small, zip lock plastic bag. Leave the bag open and place it in a closet or dresser drawer to naturally scent the space. Also great for shoes, athletic bags, backpacks, anyplace needing a subtle, natural scent.
  • As an Insect repellent: Native Americans incorporated the needles of Pine trees into their bedding to deter and repel fleas, lice and bed bugs.
