    be one of the contributing factors towards the increased vitality and bioactivity of organic essential oils Sustainable agriculture Whilst our preference is for organically produced essential oils we do accept that it has yet to be scientifically proven they are always more effective than their conventionally produced counterparts We are simply stating our opinion based on many years of feedback from our customers plus our collective experience both as a manufacturer and supplier But even if it was determined that no therapeutic difference exists between conventional and organic essential oils we would still not change our preference since essential oils produced using organic agricultural methods are much kinder to the planet There is much more to this debate than just the efficacy of the oils the decision to go organic has wide reaching effects By purchasing organic essential oils from growers who use traditional farming practices we are all contributing towards a more sustainable ecological environment for the future Surely this is a sensible and worthwhile investment for our forthcoming generations and perhaps the most important reason to give when people ask if they re not better why buy organic essential oils A large amount of agricultural land has already been lost due to soil erosion and in many places the overuse of aggressive agrochemicals has destroyed the delicate balance between wildlife and its natural habitat Organic farmers increase soil fertility through p roper tillage and crop rotation and nutritious soil produces plants that are better able to resist disease a nd insects thereby reducing the need for pesticides British organic essential oils An increasing number of Quinessence Certified Organic essential oils are now distilled on site from medicinal herbs and plants grown on farms and co operatives here in the United Kingdom The steady but growing demand for organic essential oils here helps farmers diversify into long term sustainable and profitable crops at a time when UK agriculture is in decline due to unfair competition from cheap unregulated imported foods In the early 20th century the United Kingdom was a leading producer of essential oils but the effects of two world wars led to essential oil crops being replaced with foods crops to feed the nation By the 1950 s the number of essential oil crops had dramatically declined and other countries replaced the UK s output Our hope is that the UK can once again become recognised as a leader in producing the finest organic essential oils Due to the efforts of our hard working ingenious farmers we believe the UK is well on the way to achieving this accolade Copyright Quinessence Aromatherapy Ltd 2004 2012 Written by Geoff Lyth If you enjoyed this article please click the Like button and help spread the word Next Organic status See also Essential oil origins Quinessence Aromatherapy Change my location United Kingdom Europe Rest of World Help Centre Your account Checkout Basket Shop online Online Shop Sources Origins Essential Oil Origins Bulgarian Rose Oil Chamomile Roman Oil Tunisian Neroli Oil

  • Essential Oil Quality
    practices the climate and the post harvest handling will all have a significant effect on the resulting fragrance and bioactivity of an essential oil This is why the country of origin is so important when discussing the quality of an essential oil since the climatic and soil conditions greatly affect the oil producing cells within the plant Quality requires expertise Experts at sourcing essential oils know precisely where the finest herbs and essential oils are produced but it takes many years to acquire this knowledge and to also build up relationships with the producers and distilleries In reality few companies manufacturing or supplying true aromatherapy products today have been in business long enough to have gained such vital expertise At the extraction stage the skill and experience of the distillery becomes the final critical factor in the quest for excellence since all the hard work patience and expertise of the farmer will have been wasted if the essential oil is not extracted correctly No matter which method is used to obtain the oil ultimately the final quality of an essential oil rests in the hands of the person conducting this final process and there are no second chances in the art of extraction Therefore to obtain the finest quality essential oils you once again require the services of an expert and nothing less This is a recurring theme in the quest for quality since nothing of a high standard can ever be produced without expertise Quality and expertise go hand in hand The true price of quality All of the above highlights the importance of being discerning when purchasing essential oils since no matter how convincing the sales blurb may be quality never comes cheaply You can t buy cheap gold and you can t buy good quality essential oils cheaply either because exactly the same as gold in bulk they are a traded commodity and have a market value It takes an enormous amount of money to plant and raise crops extract the oils and then ship them all around the world To bring down prices compromises must be made somewhere And no matter where they occur in the chain of events compromises lead to poor quality essential oil which in turn leads to poor results To guarantee a high level of quality at Quinessence every essential oil is subjected to the most searching analytical procedures including GC MS chromatography so that we can bring you the very best at direct from the factory prices Copyright Quinessence Aromatherapy Ltd 2002 Written by Geoff Lyth If you enjoyed this article please click the Like button and help spread the word See Quinessence Essential Oils Range Next About absolutes Quinessence Aromatherapy Change my location United Kingdom Europe Rest of World Help Centre Your account Checkout Basket Shop online Online Shop Quality Assurance Essential Oil Purity Essential Oil Quality Essential Oil Testing Essential Oil Specifications Quality Control Shelf Life of Oils Storage of Oils Let s connect Join us on Facebook for

  • Essential Oil Testing
    many procedures that must be conducted during the search for purity Other more sophisticated methods of analysis must be employed before a clearer picture can be formed of an oils authenticity Physical parameters If an essential oil sample passes all of the sensory tests the next stage is to test the physical parameters of the essential oil by means of measuring the Specific Gravity Optical Rotation and Refractive Index This is a more searching examination that will confirm or reject the authenticity of an oil s declared botanical species and country of origin whilst possibly revealing any adulteration with a foreign substance The combination of these physical tests is usually sufficient to determine if it is worth proceeding to the final stage of testing an essential oil If an oil successfully passes the first two stages it is then tested using Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry GC MS Gas chromatography When using Gas Chromatography to test an essential oil a tiny sample of the oil is injected pictured right into the apparatus which contains a very thin coiled silica tube called a capillary column This capillary column may measure up to 100 metres in length and is coated on the inside with a material that has an affinity to different chemicals at different temperatures The column is housed within a temperature regulated oven and is programmed to steadily increase in temperature over a period of time in a very precise manner When the sample of oil is injected into the column it immediately vaporises and an inert carrier gas usually hydrogen or helium moves the vapour along the column to a detector called a Flame Ionisation Detector which is situated at the end of the column Component identification The flame ioniser detector responds quantitatively to the vaporised constituents of the oil and converts this information via an integrator computer into proportional peaks printed onto computer listing paper The height of every peak on the graph corresponds proportionally to the level of that component within the oil Every individual component of the essential oil can be identified by the time at which the peak elutes on the trace The data produced can then be compared to an established profile or fingerprint for that particular essential oil to finally determine the purity of the oil Adulterants can usually be identified by this means of testing although it does require the expertise of an organic analytical chemist who is a specialist in this area to fully and accurately interpret the results of the testing Variations in climatic conditions and the type of soil in which a plant was grown will produce natural variations in essential oils produced from the same species Copyright Quinessence Aromatherapy Ltd 2001 Written by Geoff Lyth If you enjoyed this article please click the Like button and help spread the word Next Quality control See also Essential oil origins Quinessence Aromatherapy Change my location United Kingdom Europe Rest of World Help Centre Your account Checkout Basket Shop online Online Shop
