About Our Products

Formulation

We believe the formulation of beneficial and synergistic herbs, essential oils and natural ingredients is truly an art form. We work continuously to source natural and organic ingredients using responsible methods. We search for ingredients with uniquely beneficial traditional and therapeutic properties.

Essential Oils

Genuine natural products are based on essential oils. This means that they contain no synthetic ingredients made in a laboratory. This can be an issue given the range of chemical sensitivities and allergic reactions that can arise from the combination of chemicals and artificial fragrances in our environment. Essential oils from plants connects us to the botanical world and are renowned for their therapeutic and beneficial effects.

Fragrances and Colors

We never use artificial colors, dyes or fragrances in our products. We choose to use only pure essential oils to provide our products with their signature scent. The herbs we select color our products naturally so that the true properties of the herbs radiate through.

Sustainable Sourcing

We have initiated the sowing and harvesting of our proprietary botanicals and intend to increase our direct involvement in the growing of our ingredients. We believe that we have a responsibility in the land stewardship that yields the ingredients which make up EO®.

Paraben and Synthetic Free

We take the path less traveled and choose not to include synthetic colors, fragrances or harsh chemicals in any of our products.

Packaging

As a manufacturer we believe in being a part of the solution. We take responsibility for this by choosing to make our bottles from recycled PET bottles that have been collected and re-cast into our signature blue bottles. We believe it’s how we can do our part to decrease waste accumulating in our landfills.
