We love to support other local Appalachian artisans and makers like Ian at Blue Ridge Aromatics, someone who we believe is displaying the ultimate in truly sustainable essential oil distillation. We are excited to offer these 5 ml bottles of oils made from conscientiously recycled or organically cultivated plant matter right here outside of Asheville, NC. Scroll down to learn more about their story.
Holy Basil (Tulsi) Essential Oil:
"100% Pure Holy Basil essential oil (Ocimum tenuiflorum), diluted in organic unrefined (golden) Jojoba oil. 10% dilution is still strong for topical use so those with sensitive skin may want to further dilute. This bio-dynamically farmed “Kapoor” variety is well-suited for growing in temperate climates. The aroma is a little spicy, earthy, slightly floral and sweet, with a lovely clove base note."
Lime Essential Oil:
"100% Pure Lime (Citrus x latifolia) Peel essential oil, steam distilled from fresh “waste” organic lime peels from a local beverage maker. This oil smells absolutely divine; just like limes but super sweet. Disinfectant, deodorizing and powerfully cleansing! A bonus of distilled citrus oils (vs pressed) is that they are not photosensitizing."
Ginger Essential Oil:
"100% pure and authentic fresh Ginger Root essential oil. Steam-distilled in NC from “waste” juiced organic fresh ginger root from a local kombucha maker. Warming, calming, anti-inflammatory and a digestive aid. Smells like fresh-cut ginger root. Fantastic for head, stomach and muscle aches!* Very potent aroma."
Norway Spruce Essential Oil:
"100% Pure Norway Spruce (Picea abies) essential oil. This is a special small-batch, harvested in Candler, NC from no-spray landscape trimmings. Norway Spruce oil has an aroma like a walk through an alpine forest after rain and is a respiratory aid. It has a slightly sweet top note with mellow turpentine and rich-soil middle notes on top of a strong camphor base."
White Pine Essential Oil:
"100% Pure Pinus strobus essential oil. White Pine is a dominant Southern Appalachian forest species that grows fast and large. The aroma of the essential oil is of fresh pine with slight balsamic and soapy notes. A very familiar scent for locals! White Pine oil is powerfully cleansing and refreshing. No-spray, wild-crafted."
