Essential Oils

An oil is "essential" in the sense that it contains the "essence of" the plant’s fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived.


Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression, solvent extraction, absolute oil extraction, resin tapping, and cold pressing. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavouring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.

Essential Oils derived from aroma components of plants indigenous to Sri Lanka and other tropical countries are traded for the manufacture of home and personal care products. Want a rare essential oil? We can ship it to Sri Lanka, just for you.
