Essential oils by Veriditas are 100% pure Ecocert certified and organic.
Ever passed by those rows of tiny bottles in the wellness department and wondered, what’s up with that? Well, what’s up is that those tiny bottles are filled with aromatic essential oils, and one of our favorite suppliers of essentials oils is Veriditas Botanicals.
Veriditas makes 100 percent pure Ecocert certified organic essential oils.
One thing Veriditas Botanicals is currently changing is its name: to Veriditas by Pranarom. What won’t change is the quality of its products and its sustainable practices.
Veriditas is committed to organic.
Organic plants provide the highest potency essential oils with strong anti-microbial properties lacking in chemically treated plants.
It takes a mind-boggling volume of 5.5 million freshly picked roses to produce one liter of organic rose essential oil. By sourcing organic plants for its products, Veriditas helps to preserve organic farmland and supports small, family farms that take great pride in their organic farming and distillation.
Veriditas is an intentionally small, Minnesota-based company that works exclusively with co-ops and independent retailers. The company does not work with essential oil brokers, but has direct relationships with farmers and distilleries to provide the freshest, highest-grade essential oils available in the U.S.
Veriditas is an exceptional company that is doing exceptional work.
Now, you may be wondering about the uses of essential oils.
The uses are many: aromatherapy, perfumes, topical treatments, cleaning products, and—since Veriditas sells only 100 percent pure organic essential oils—its essential oils can also be used in cooking, teas, tinctures, or other internal applications. If you Google “uses for essential oils,” you’ll find plenty of links with titles like “150 Ways to Use Essential Oils.”
Of course, we highly recommend you start gathering information from the experts. You’ll find ample information about how to use essential oils on “Melissa’s Educational Blog” at the Veriditas website. Melissa Farris, Veriditas founder, first leapt into the world of essential oils in 1996 when she started a very successful business called Simplers—selling the first line of certified organic essential oils in the United States—and has been immersed in the work and study of essential oils ever since. You’ll find a wealth of information on her blog and on the Veriditas website. Additionally, you can also chat with the Co-op’s wellness experts about how best to use essential oils.
when using essentials oils in any application, start with just a single drop
If nothing else, keep in mind Melissa’s recommendation that when using essentials oils in any application, start with just a single drop: smell, taste, and otherwise test before adding more. No point in squandering even one drop of these wonderful, aromatic oils that are carefully distilled from nature’s purest plants and flowers.
