Known as the ‘Spice Island’, Sri Lanka offers a diversity of climatic regions suitable to produce an array of essential oils. The growing region is warm and wet allowing for multiple harvests of different crops through the year. We have maintained a strong relationship with our Sri Lankan supplier for over a decade, visiting them last month at their organic plantation in Kosgoda and factory in Colombo as part of our Supply Partner Visit Program.
Our range of organic Sri Lankan essential oils are grown and distilled in dedicated organic facilities on the Island. The plantations are near the processing unit and care is taken to ensure that traditional methods are used for production of high quality genuine organic oils. The plantation process is sustainable as it is a self-contained facility and the multi-crop policy means the soil isn’t over stripped of nutrients from mono-culture.
The oil extraction can be done in different ways, namely steam distillation and solvent extraction. The main part used to obtain oil are the bottom roots which have a robust aroma.
This product is widely used in perfumes and aromatherapy.
