Why buy from us?
To avoid the decomposition of a plant's components we opt for extracting essential oils from steam distillation. The method help maintains the high concentration of oils which otherwise can be influenced by other methods. Solvent-based extraction methods incorporating the use of Hexane, an unhealthy solvent is not preferred for this reason. To achieve a 100% purity it is important to be thorough in the method of extracting oil and for that matter, we opt for the best and widely recognised techniques.
Caution: At Cavin Schon, we do not recommend our essential oil to be used without dilution. Apply on a smaller patch of skin to test for allergies. Discontinue use if irritation occurs unless with the assistance of a reliable skin doctor. For external use only.
