Farms We Work With
We work with farmers and distillers all around the world.
Find out more about them and the great work they do below.
Bergamot, lemon, lime, mandarin, and orange oils
This farm has not used any fertilisers for the last twenty years — not even the ones permitted by their organic certification. Instead, they practise biodynamic farming, which, similar to organic farming, uses manures and composts instead of artificial chemicals on the soil.
They are also passionate about employing their local community. Many of their employees have worked with them for most of their lives, and the farm now even employs some of their employees’ grown children! They also run an education programme which allows children from surrounding villages to visit and learn all about growing their own food without using chemicals or fertilisers.
Founded with the desire to build an enterprise of real social value by generating much needed employment for the local people, this distillery was started in partnership with a local Maori charitable trust and an industrial engineer.
The land from which the Manuka bush is sourced is predominately Maori tribal land, which have not been sprayed with pesticides, herbicides or any other chemicals. Their harvesting process protects the sustainability of the Manuka bush by ensuring a low environmental impact.
Tea tree oil
The owner of this plantation takes in workers who have had a hard time in life and are trying to get their lives back together again. She provides them with a chance to get back on their feet in exchange for them tending to the fields and maintain the farm. This farm is also fully certified organic, so you can be sure there are no pesticides or chemicals hiding in your oil.
Citronella and lemongrass oils
We began working with this young farm, which only started producing essential oils in 2018, as their first international partner. While they are definitely a small, family-run outfit with only three employees, the quality of their oils is truly outstanding. Just take a look at their GCMS reports!
Although they are currently still undergoing application for their certification, their farm is run as if it were certified organic. They prioritise sustainability by reusing plant waste from the distillation process as fertiliser for their crops and animal feed for the surrounding farms. They also collect rainwater for irrigation.
This is a second-generation family-run business. Even though they are not certified organic, many of their oils are wild-crafted without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilisers. Their close proximity to Singapore also reduces the product’s carbon footprint.
Lavender, Rose, and Melissa oils
This family-run distiller has been certified organic since 2007. We adore them because the environment is a core part of their business — they even developed a distilling process that yields zero waste! Everything goes back into their gardens in the form of a natural fertiliser while the parts of the plants that cannot be used to distil oil are given to a nearby cow farm for feed.
German chamomile and Roman chamomile oils
This team of farmers owns 70 hectares of land, which are farmed using organic growing methods without pesticides or herbicides. They also have a small distillery near their fields to ensure freshly harvested herbs can be immediately processed.
From March till November each year, they employ at least 30 locals to help with field operations. In 2010, they invested in a complete pellet production line that uses the agricultural and distillation residue left over from essential oil production. Not only does this process help to save on CO2 emissions, it also keeps field employees employed during winter.
The production of this frankincense oil provides much needed jobs to a small region of Somaliland where jobs are scarce. Farmers first take special care to remove the Frankincense gum from pockets in the Boswellia trees without damaging the trees, before local women from the village separate the resin into different grades for distillation.
This distiller strongly believes in sustainability and is certified organic and Fair Trade by ECOCERT. They are the largest producer of vetiver in Haiti with over 27,000 families in their employment. The farm looks out for their employees by supporting their children through scholarships and educational projects.
Bosnia And Herzegovina
These rosemary plantations are far from any industry or pollution, providing clean air and soil for this beautiful organic oil. All of the farms that this family runs are certified by ECO CERT.
