The Canada Organic logo ensures that our products conform to the Canadian norms for organic agriculture (from the farm to the shelves) containing at least 95% organic ingredients, exempt of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and complying with sustainable practices.
USDA is an acronym for United States Department of Agriculture and represents the American standard for organic certification. It ensures that the product is exempt from synthetic molecules and substances, genetic engineering and radiation.
It is of utmost importance to know the origin, the botanical species and the part of the plant (leaves, flowers, roots, etc) when using essential oils for specific therapeutic treatments. We list this information in our price lists and on each one of our bottles to ensure easy access.
Wild (SAUV) : Plants that have been collected from the wild. Grown in their natural environment, without human intervention until the harvest, these plants tend to flourish in their natural habitat and are naturally exempt from chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers.
Sustainable Agriculture (PED) : Sustainable cultivation practices are observed and great care is taken to ensure the respect of the planet, the plants and the people. These producers strive to avoid any chemical fertilizers or pesticides but have decided to opt out of an official organic certification, usually because of the added expense and/or the time-consuming nature of the certification process.
Conventional (CONV) : The plants used to make these products are cultivated by a producer who does not have an organic certificate. We strive to work with farmers who practice responsible and sustainable agriculture and use little or no pesticides.
