Our extraction method
We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality citrus essential oils, which are carefully crafted using only the freshest raw materials and advanced extraction techniques. Our expert team manually harvests leaves, flowers, and fruits directly from our own trees, ensuring that each product is infused with the purest natural goodness. To guarantee the exceptional quality of our citrus fruit, we use the Poncirus trifoliata rootstock, a slow-growing variety that enhances the flavor and aroma of the fruit. Additionally, this choice of rootstock enables us to avoid the use of harmful pesticides and other chemical treatments that can negatively impact the environment and your health. We are here for all your citrus essential oil needs, get in touch and experience the difference that true quality can make.
We are committed to producing the highest quality citrus fruits while minimizing our environmental impact. That's why we utilize a mineral mulch in our citrus groves to reduce water consumption by up to 75% and keep soil warm during the Mediterranean winter. This, in turn, promotes healthy tree growth and improves resistance to harmful pathogens. We take a hands-on approach to tree care, manually pruning each tree to allow for optimal light and air circulation. This helps prevent insect damage to fruit and leaves while also promoting healthy growth. In addition, we use natural paper or specially made Japanese bags to provide a physical barrier that protects each individual fruit from insects and sun damage.
While these pruning and protection techniques require a significant investment of time and result in limited production, they enable us to achieve a pesticide-free harvest and deliver the highest quality citrus fruits to our customers. Our approach is adapted to our citrus fruit needs, It is a wonderful sight to experience the difference that sustainable, responsible farming practices can make.
We're dedicated to using the most advanced and ecologically sustainable technologies to produce the highest quality essential oils. That's why we've chosen the Solvent Free Microwave Extraction (SFME) method, which is an innovative and patented technology that's both economically and environmentally friendly. SFME is a recent extraction method that combines selective heating and distillation at atmospheric pressure, producing essential oils that are true to the natural composition of the plant. Unlike traditional extraction methods, SFME is solvent-free and generates no non-compostable waste, making it an ideal choice for sustainable production.
This advanced technology also requires less water and energy, further reducing our environmental impact.
We take great pride in the quality of our essential oils. Our devotion to growing the finest citrus means we put meticulous care into every step of the extraction process.
We only select the freshest and ripest fruit, leaves, and flowers for our essential oils. Each ingredient is handpicked and inspected to ensure optimal maturity. We then use our eco-responsible extraction technique, which exclusively takes place on-site and without delay, to capture the essence of our own trees.
Our commitment to quality means you can trust that every drop of our citrus essential oil is bursting with the full, natural flavor and aroma of the plant. Experience the difference of our fresh, hand-picked ingredients and expert extraction process for yourself.
Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond just using eco-responsible methods of extraction. We have chosen the Solvent Free Microwave Extraction (SFME) method because it has a reduced environmental impact compared to traditional extraction methods. The SFME method emits only 200g CO2 per gram of essential oil, compared to the 3600g CO2 emitted by traditional methods. (Ferhat et al., 2006,07; Luchesib et al., 2004a, 2004b) By choosing our essential oils, you are not only supporting your own wellbeing but also helping to protect our planet.
