I recently posted about these wonderful natural oil blends on the Nourished Life Facebook page, and was inundated with questions about what they are, what they contain and what they can be used for! I recently sat down with the ECO. AROMA team to answer all your questions- and here they are!
Essential oils are so wonderful for clearing the mind, helping us focus, aiding with sleep and even to relieve stress. I love using Why you need to try Little Innoscents Essential Oils![essential oils] as an alternative to traditional perfumes, which is why I am SO excited to now be selling these ECO.Aroma Pure Blend Oil Rollerballs as the packaging makes them so easy to apply directly to the skin. After a recent Facebook post I was inundated with questions from my fabulous customers, so I thought I'd put together a quick blog post to answer your questions and show you just why I am loving this new product. There's an oil blend for everyone!
How have the ingredients been sourced?
All ECO. products are made in Australia, however not all ingredients are sourced from Australia. Due to climatic, geographic & season availability reasons, all ingredients may not be obtained in Australia. These essential oils are sourced from countries where the plant material grows best climatically & seasonally and that contain the best active constituents to perform accordingly to the high standards ECO. set. The ingredients are sourced from countries aligned with ECO.'s manufacturing ethical sourcing code compliance & Quality Assurance standards.
How are pure oils made?
There are three different types of extraction for Essential Oils (Steam, Cold Pressing & Solvent). These differ for each oil.
What does 100% pure oils mean, i.e not synthetic, derived only from the plant?
Yes, correct – 100% pure means that only the plant extract is used from the named Botanical species. They contain no inputs or other technical additions.

What is the difference between organic and natural essential oils?
Certified organic is grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers, or GMOs. Pure Essential Oils are 100% Natural and in most cases these oils comply with International Organic Certifiers however approximately 60% of plant material used to distill essential oils is grown in countries that do not have organic standards or certification.

No, most pure essential oils are not food grade as they are pure. Food grade Essential Oils tend to be blended essential oils.
