We offer 100% pure essential oils that contain absolutely no fillers, diluting oils, synthetic fragrances, or unnatural components of any kind. Previously, companies within the essential oil industry have called this level of quality "therapeutic grade." We prefer to just speak to the quality of our products, without buzz-words or marketing slogans. All of our oils are created with the highest quality plants (usually certified organic). They're then tested on three different occasions for purity and potency. After, we bottle the oils in black matte bottles so no light is able to reach them and they are bottled without exposure to oxygen. They're stored in a temperature-controlled building while they wait to ship out directly you! This diligent process of sourcing, manufacturing and shipping allows us to offer the highest quality oils on the market at an affordable price.
No, we never use any synthetic or diluting oils. All our oils are 100% natural with nothing added.
As a Canadian company, we can’t promote ingestion of our oils. However all of our oils are certified natural, and 8 of our 16 oils are certified organic. We suggest seeing a certified aromatherapist before ingesting any essential oils :)
We source essential oils from more than 30 countries around the world. From France to Madagascar, we choose regions that produce the highest quality oils, so we can bring the best essential oils from around the globe directly to you.
Our essential oils can be used for a variety of different things! basenotes has a variety of recipes, ranging from all purpose cleaners to blemish spot remedies! Also feel free to reach out to us at any time and we'll be happy to share some ideas on how to use your new oils.
