Why buy from us?
Essential oils are extracted by the method of steam distillation to ensure their purity. This method has been acquired to avoid the decomposition of a plant’s compounds which can result from the high boil. We avoid the use of solvent based extraction methods at Cavin Schon which encompass the use of ‘Hexane’ which is toxic to health and the remaining chemical might pollute the purity of the oil.
We prefer the use of a light extraction method, like steam distillation for preserving originality and essence of the oil.
Caution: Testing this product on a patch of your skin is recommended prior to use. It’s highly concentrated due to its method of extraction and 100% purity. We recommend that you dilute it with a carrier oil. In case of irritation or skin trouble, consult a doctor. For external use only.
