For the longest time we've been trying to find the best source of Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils in the Philippines. Really, we didn't want the ones available locally 8 years ago. They're affordable, they smell good, but those are not the ones we're looking for. Almost every Lavender and Peppermint we've taken a whiff at smells narcotic, seems to have a little too much of some fragrance notes, and generally, feels "incomplete."
So what's the motive behind selling fragrance oils as essential oils? Maybe ignorance or choosing not to know. Maybe there's no real supply and demand. Maybe no one would bother questioning why. And for the longest time, the above-mentioned are probable truths.
We were lucky to be able to get Lavender and Peppermint plants locally, and none of the so called Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils in the Philippines passed the test. So instead of relying with the current supply, we set highly specialized arrangements to get the real essential oils. We also know for a fact that these essential oils are quite expensively priced in the world market, so if you're getting Peppermint and Lavender Essential Oils dirt cheap, you're probably getting not the real thing.
Our Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils are pure plant extracts. Our Lavender Essential Oil is extracted from the flowering tops and leaves of Lavandula officinalis or English Lavender, while our Peppermint Essential Oil comes from the whole plant of Mentha piperita.
