Types of Oils
Navigating our range of Essential oils can be a little daunting, here's a quick guide to what's available.
Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils:
The vast majority of our oils fall into this category. These are 100% pure and natural essential oils and may be used for therapeutic applications as well as cosmetics, personal care and anything else you can think of.
Certified Organic Essential Oils:
A subset of our therapeutic range, these oils have been grown in a more sustainable way without the routine use of harmful herbicides and pesticides. All PureNature certified organic products are certified by BioGro New Zealand.
For some plants, florals in particular, distillation is not a suitable method for extracting the essential oils. It either does not work, is very inefficient or can actually damage the oils. In this instance the oils is extracted using an organic solvent and the end product is called an absolute. Solvent extraction is very efficient but it also extracts gums, resins and waxes from the plant matter which must be removed - this is where we get floral waxes
. Traditionally, absolutes are not considered suitable for therapeutic use due to the perception that solvent residues may be present in the oil. However, these concerns are unfounded as only minute traces of solvent remain and at these concentrations would not pose any harm in typical aromatherapy practice.
Cosmetic Grade Oils:
These are expertly blended oils, made using a combination of mixed species/origin oils, essential oil fractions and nature identical components. This allows for an oil that closely resembles it's natural counterpart but at a lower cost and consistent aromatic profile. Cosmetic grade oils are not considered therapeutic and should be used for their scent only.
Food Grade Essential Oils:
These are suitable for use in commercial food preparation as natural flavours. We pack these on our MPI approved food packing line, feel free to contact us
should your require further documentation.
