Dubbed by scientists as a "Botanical Treasure Island" our essential oils begin in the loamy fresh soils of Madagascar, located 250 miles from the nearest continent. Its pristine island environment and ecological diversity make its plant extracts and essential oils both distinctive and exceptional. Purest of the Pure Madagascar's environment is one of the cleanest in the world. The heavy metals and toxins that pollute the topsoil of other countries are rarely found in the soil of Madagascar. Very few of the country's farmers can afford chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. So, most rivers and streams in Madagascar are free of chemical residues and industrial pollutants. Automobiles are rarely seen outside the capital. Air pollution and the toxins that accompany it - nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide - are virtually unknown on the island. We are able to start with pure, clean, uncontaminated plants to bring you the purest essential oils.
