Where do Penny Price Aromatherapy Oils Come From?
Various suppliers globally, depending on the product itself and its origin, we feel that all natural products should be grown in their own natural environment to make sure that the best quality and harvest are received. This also follows our ethos of naturally farmed products which have not been grown ‘against nature’.
Are Penny Price Aromatherapy Oils From Reliable & Sustainable Growers?
Yes, all of our essential oils are naturally farmed. The majority of them come from France, having either been grown and distilled there or distilled from imported plant material. This latter is because we trust our distillers to ensure that the quality of the oil is not endangered in any way.
Although some of our oils can be called organic (i.e. they have been certified) most are just grown naturally without pesticides or fertilisers and without the added expense of a certificate. We run study tours to our distillation area in France for you to see for yourself how our plants are grown and processed.
Contact [email protected] for more details.
What Kind Of Relationship Do You Have With Your Growers and Distillers?
The company imports as many aromatherapy products as possible from independent growers and small farming co-operatives and runs study tours every year to our French fields so you can see yourself how our oils are grown and processed in this region. We have a good relationship with all of our suppliers, which has been developed over many years.
Are Your Products Made From Organic Ingredients, Why Are Is No Organic Certification On Your Packaging?
All of our products are naturally farmed. This means that the farmers plant and harvest the goods without the use of pesticides on good natural soil. The company imports as many aromatherapy products as possible from independent growers and small farming co-operatives, and so for these farmers and co-operatives to gain organic certification would be too expensive for them, and in turn for us. Penny regularly visits our farmers and our suppliers, and we have built a long relationship with them, ensuring that quality is of the highest standard. Some of our ingredients are certified as organic, however, we do not publish which ones as all of our supplied products are to the same high and exact standards. We belong to the ATC (Aromatherapy Trade Council) to assure you of our quality and consistency.
What Makes A "Good Quality" Essential Oil?
The main factors to look for to ensure you get a good quality essential oil are:
That at the plant has been grown specifically for aromatherapy, it has been grown in the right environment, it has been nurtured without the use of pesticides or soil enhancers, the plant has been harvested at the right time to get the best quality essential oil and not necessarily the most, that the distillation process is completed making sure that all of the relevant chemical components are given the amount of time necessary for them to be extracted from the plant material, that no adulteration has taken place – nothing added or taken away.
What Makes Penny Price Aromatherapy Oils Different?
Our essential oils are all naturally farmed, there is a personal relationship with our suppliers to ensure quality, and all of our essential oils are put through a rigorous booking in process on arrival before we allow them to be used and sold in any of our products. We have a long history of clinical aromatherapy and a fully trained team at hand in our company, along with the years of experience we offer knowledge, help and support to all of our customers, with data sheets and details of all of our oils available on our website and on request with purchase. Our essential oils are of the highest quality and standard and are world renowned for this and their therapeutic uses.
What Is The Biggest Misconception About Essential Oils?
There are several misconceptions regarding essential oils, the most common are that they can cause harm to cancer patients, pregnant women, nursing mothers and small babies/ children. Essential oils, when used correctly and under supervision of a qualified Aromatherapist, can be used in all client groups.
Are Your Products Safe To Use On Children Babies & During Pregnancy
All our products are formulated from natural products and all the essential oils used are present in safe levels in all our ready-made, ready-to-use skin care and body care products.

If you are learning aromatherapy you can learn online, but again, the massage would need an in-house module unless you are already a qualified masseuse. For more details visit our training pages or email [email protected]
