Products that claim to be organic but do not carry an official seal may not meet USDA organic standards. If organic is important to you, don’t rely on the claims—always look for a USDA Organic seal.
What Does Certified Organic Mean?
It indicates that our essential oils have been produced through approved practices that promote ecological balance, conserve biodiversity, and contain no synthetic fertilizers, harmful pesticides or genetically modified organisms.
What’s Involved in the Organic Certification Process?
Our products and suppliers are inspected annually to ensure compliance with USDA Organic regulations. Our testing goes above and beyond our yearly recertification. Before every single oil is bottled or blended, we diligently test for quality and purity. If an oil or ingredient doesn't meet our standards, we reject it and continue searching for the highest quality possible.
We’re proud to offer our USDA Certified Organic essential oils under National Organic Program (NOP) Operation ID # 5350000149.
Why Buy Certified Organic?
It’s better for you. Organically grown products often have more beneficial nutrients and antioxidants than their non-organic counterparts and less detectable pesticide residue.
It’s better for all of us. Organic farms are better for the environment. They use sustainable practices to reduce pollution and soil erosion, conserve water and use less energy.

How to safely add essential oils into your everyday products
Fragranced consumer products such as personal care products, air fresheners, and home cleaning supplies emit air pollutants that affect indoor air quality as well as personal health and wellbeing. Studies have proven that fragranced products have been associated with a number of health effects including asthma attacks, migraine headaches, neurological problems, and contact dermatitis. This is because the term “fragrance” listed on a product ingredient list can hide a complex mixture of chemicals that brands do not have to disclose.
