About Simply Earth:
“Step 1: The Plant and Location
Step 2: How it was Farmed
Step 3: Different Distilling Methods
- Steam: Steam passes through the plant material (leaves, grass, roots, etc.), causing them to release their aromatic components. The steam is then condensed and the essential oil is extracted.
- Water (hydro): The plant materials (normally bark, wood, or harder compounds) are submerged in water to make a “soup.” As they are heated, they release their aromatic components into the steam which is then condensed and the essential oil is extracted.
- Steam/Water: Indirect steam is applied to the plant material (normally leaves) while water sits underneath the plant material.
- Expression: Plant materials (generally citrus rinds) are pressed by machines to squeeze out oils. Also known as “cold-pressed.”
Step 4: Packing and Storage
All oils should be stored in dark bottles as essential oils are light sensitive. Two common options are aluminum containers or amber glass bottles. The oils should also be stored in temperature-controlled environments for optimal preservation.
Step 5: Tested
I like to say, “I’ll believe it when I see it,” and I frequently apply this philosophy when testing the purity of essential oils. The type of testing oils undergo to examine purity is called gas chromatography and mass spectrometry- GC/MS for short. GC/MS testing breaks down the essential oil to reveal each of its unique chemical components. A trained aromatherapist then compares those amounts to the components in a standardized chemical composition for that oil to test if it truly is 100% pure. GC/MS testing will reveal if anything has been added or removed from the oil.
That is how we at Simply Earth make sure our oils truly are 100% pure and untarnished.
Step 6: Enjoyed by You!
It would be a pretty accurate thing to say that I’m geeking out on essential oils as of lately. Particularly for their versatility and pureness, I really value and get a lot of use our of essential oils every single day. Here are some of my favorite uses:
-Homemade toothpaste + deodorant
-Flea repellent for my dog
-Homemade body spray
The idea of curating a monthly box for customers to enjoy (that contains 5 Eos + Recipes + Recipe Ingredients + Recipe Containers) is super neat to me. It helps introduce people to essential oils with a fun + creative instruction manual, so to speak.
I am impressed by how this brand gives back + impressed with the packaging and curation of the themed box and even more impressed that they think I’m cool enough to pass along some goodies to me in order to retrieve my thoughts. Thank you, Simply Earth (rad name, btw)!
