Fully Bioactive, Artisan-Quality Essential Oils Sourced Directly From Artisan Growers and Distillers Snow Lotus Aromatherapy is proud to offer an outstanding collection of over 70 pure, bioactive and certified organic essential oils of artisan quality, and over 80 essential oil blends formulated with these. What exactly does artisan oil quality imply? It simply means an oil produced by traditional steam distillation that aims to produce an oil of maximum beauty and healing potential combined. We believe that traditional artisan methods of extracting essential oils are crucial at this time for two reasons. Firstly, they allow the plant to express itself fully with a beautiful, rich fragrance that is not found in most commercially-produced oils. Secondly, artisan distillation will produce an essential oil that is fully bioactive, i.e. one that performs therapeutically in the way that it is intended to, as well as in ways that we are left to explore and yet to discover! All Snow Lotus essential oils are personally sourced and hand selected by Peter Holmes LAc, MH, directly from the producers and independent distillers worldwide who sustainably grow or ethically wild-harvest the plants they distill and you can now purchase these through our apps! The oils are selected specifically for optimal therapeutic potency and richness of fragrance, not for purity alone. Purity by itself is not a guarantee of either high bioactivity or excellence of aroma. In his essential oil selection, Peter follows the following three criteria, which together ensure maximum oil bioactivity and treatment potency, as well as an exquisite fragrance.
