About Oils and Recipes

You can always expect the best quality and prices from our oils. This is our commitment to you:

  • Spoilage is kept to a minimum. As you know, oils can go rancid and this can cause free radical damage. We are conscientious about rotating our stock; the quick turnover of oils insures that you're purchasing fresh product.
  • We sell only the finest oils. All of our bulk massage oils are expeller processed.
  • We select the highest quality essential oils and fragrance oils. All of our essential oils are 100% pure, undiluted, and unadulterated; most are steam distilled, while the citrus essential oils are cold-pressed.

Also, check out our recipes -- our employees have developed, tested, and revised many of these, so they're pretty reliable recipes to experiment with. Enjoy!
