Why buy from us?
The extraction of essential oils is commenced with the very safe method of steam distillation to ensure 100% purity. At Cavin Schon, this extraction is carried out with the intention of keeping the oil pure and chemical free which might not be possible with a solvent-based technique incorporating Hexane, toxic for health. To avoid damage to the plant compounds at a high boil, steam distillation is the only method to safely extract their goodness without compromise. This mild extraction technique assists in achieving that.
