Our essential oils are 100% pure steam distilled aromatic oils with no carrier oils, diluents, or other ingredients added. We offer one of the largest Certified Organic selections, and we source the world's finest 100% pure essential oils from reputable distillers we know and trust. Our essential oils are supervised by our Certified Aromatherapist Christine Guerts for extraction methods, material used, data reports, purity, and quality.
All of the essential oils offered by Mountain Rose Herbs are obtained by steam distillation of whole plant material with two exceptions
Absolutes/Resins- are extracted with a solvent, usually alcohol and sometimes other hydrocarbons, such as benzene, hexane, etc. While they are not suitable for therapeutic aromatherapy, they do make wonderful perfumes and are alcohol soluble. Those oils which we have found to be extracted with solvents will be noted as "solvent extracted."
Citrus Oils- All citrus oils offered are distilled strictly through cold pressed methods, and no steam distillation was employed to produce these oils.
A glass dropper is provided with all 1/8 oz and 1/4 oz essential oils. However we do not recommended storing the dropper in the bottle.
