There are a few reasons why Elemis is superior to other aromatherapy products. One of the reasons is our effort to ensure that all essential oils and plant extracts are of premium medical grade with high therapeutic value. The other is that we only use first extraction. These two practices seem small, but make a world of difference to the finished product. Growing medicinal plants is a science, and extra effort is spent selecting only the finest seeds, growing them in the most effective conditions and cultivating them just at the right time. The plants are then dried carefully and the active ingredients extracted using highly technical equipment. Elemis plant essential oils are most potent and are extracted only once from the plant, whereas some aromatherapy ranges can use essential oils that have been extracted ten times! Imagine drinking a cup of tea with a tea bag that has been used ten times! This means you will still have some aroma but little, if any, therapeutic plant activity. However, there is one other, perhaps even more important reason that our aromatherapy products are so powerful on the skin. It is because we use "Absolutes” the purest form of living energy extracted from the plant.
