Organic September puts the spotlight on organic essential oils

by Brandon

Every year, the Soil Association runs a month-long campaign called Organic September to promote and educate people about organic food and farming practices.  This can also be applied to other organic sectors such as the production of organic flavour and fragrance ingredients including organic essential oils.

Methods used in essential oil production overlap with those used when farming crops. This means sticking to principles such as:

  • Natural fertilisers and fewer pesticides
  • No genetically modified crops
  • Wildlife-friendly farms and fields
  • Regular inspections to ensure EU compliance

It is believed that organic oils are superior to their non-organic counterparts in terms of quality, fragrance and healing properties.  Certified organic essential oils are steam distilled or cold pressed from plants that are grown without pesticides.

Organic September is an ideal opportunity to set out new environmental ambitions for your brand.  You can improve sales and brand perception in an ethical way, all while ensuring your supply chain activities are sustainable in environmental terms.
