• 2,000 pounds of lavender flowers = one gallon of lavender oil.
• 2,000 pounds of oranges = 10 gallons of orange oil
• 5.5 million roses = 1 liter of rose oil. (That’s 30 rosebuds in EACH DROP of rose oil.)
With the above numbers in mind, take a moment to consider the land mass represented in our tiny glass bottles. This is one of the reasons we speak so passionately about the importance of organic farming. As we harvest and consume this highly concentrated plant life, we need to protect and sustain the source.
The practice of organic farming considers our fragile environment and keeps organic plant life in its most natural state, from the farm to your home pharmacy. Unfortunately the protective and sustainable practices associated with organic farming are not the norm in this industry.
Veriditas by Pranarom is proud to be certified by Ecocert, an independent, environmentally conscious, international company which tests from the dirt to the bottle. We disclose our sources and methods in a world where that kind of information is often concealed – such is the quality of the product. This organic distinction is not only looking out for the planet, it’s also looking out for us. Essential oils, when harvested and produced organically, have the ability to play a vital role in our physical well being.
Veriditas Botanicals (est. 2008, Minnesota, USA) was originally founded with a goal to share the benefits of French Medical Aromatherapy with the US market.
