Essential Oils

Buy natural essential oils from flowers and woods 
We have the greatest respect for nature and its trees, flowers and blossoms. Therefore we donate a part of the proceeds of their purchases to the non-governmental organization <<<Embracing The World>>, which helps people in need and plants thousands of trees every year. We rely exclusively on tried-and-tested processes for the production and extraction of essential oils. But before we go into further detail, we would like to tell you something about the effect, application, production and definition of essential oils
How is it possible for a rose to produce such a wonderfully fragrant oil only through photosynthesis, in which the plant produces glucose and oxygen from carbon dioxide and water? The essential oils, i.e. the aromatic molecules of a plant, attract insects, chase away pests and protect a delicate flower or sweet fruit from bacteria and fungi. For thousands of years people have enjoyed the aromatic scent of this wonderful plant power, and have used it for mental and physical cleansing & soothing. Furthermore, essential oils are a first-class alternative to the artificial fragrances used in many perfumes and cosmetics. 
Definition: What are essential oils? 
Essential oils are by definition mixtures of different organic substances that are soluble in each other. The term essential means something like "not tangible". Essential oils are also called "the souls of plants" as they contain all the vitality of a plant. Essential oils are volatile (do not leave grease stains on paper) and are extracted from flowers, leaves and also fruits by means of steam distillation. But they can also be extracted from barks and roots. Of approximately 345,000 plants on earth, only 2,300 are considered to be so-called "essential oil plants". 
For plants, essential oils fulfil another, often less well-known function. They serve as a means of communication and are transmitted to other plants via the wind to warn them of predators. If a plant is alarmed, it secretes bitter or other unpleasant substances. In this way it is not attacked. 
Some plants even protect their habitat with essential oils by emitting scents that make it difficult for alien plants to develop in their direct vicinity. In this way they secure their vital quantities of water and minerals. In hot regions and seasons, the oils also act as a kind of sunscreen and protect the respective plant from the sun's rays and excessive evaporation of its own water supplies. For example, the fragrance bell is created around cistus bushes, which can be smelled from afar in Portugal in summer. The essential oils protect the plants by a gaseous sphere that is placed around leaves or needles of the plants.  
Features of essential oils in the overview:
  • are produced in the cells of certain plants
  • contain up to 500 different biochemical components depending on the plant
  • are subject to fragrance fluctuations
  • are highly concentrated
  • volatile, which means they do not cause grease stains
  • are sensitive to light and heat, therefore they are stored in brown bottles
  • do not combine with water, but with other oils, cream, egg yolk or alcohol
  • are a lure for insects
  • protect plants from bacteria and fungi
  • Predominant components: Isoprenoids (terpenes, C10 & C15) & phenylpopanoids

Production of essential oils - how are they obtained? 
We use the tried and tested methods of steam distillation and alcohol extraction for the extraction and production of our essential oils. Distillation, i.e. by evaporation and subsequent condensation of the steam, produces two different products: The essential oil and the hydrolate. The hydrolate, or flower water, contains the water-soluble ingredients of the plant, the essential oil the fat-soluble components. In order to maintain a maximum of the potent active ingredients and fragrance components in our essential oils, no overheating of the oils takes place thanks to slow hydro or steam distillation. From 70 degrees Celsius on, very volatile fragrances are already lost, which reduces the effect and quality of the oil. 
Effect & areas of application of essential oils 
Undiluted on the skin: Caution, essential oils are highly concentrated essences. They can irritate your skin. First test on a small patch of your skin to see if you can tolerate the oil.  
As a massage oil: Mix 10 drops of your favourite Amrita Organics oil with 20 ml jojoba, almond or sesame oil.
As a cream: Add a walnut-sized amount of your body cream with a drop of essential oil.
In a full bath: Maximum 10 drops for a full bath (120 to 150 litres of water)

In the fragrance lamp: fragrances enchant and change the atmosphere. Mix a few drops of your favourite oil with a little water and let it evaporate slowly.

As a room spray: Create your own room spray and mix three parts water with one part alcohol and a few drops of your favourite Amrita Organics fragrance.  

On the fragrance stone: Put four to eight drops on an aroma stone. IDuftsteine are ideal for the car, in the closet or hotel room.

Where do the plants and woods for our oils come from?

When should essential oils not be used?
High quality essential oils, like all those in our shop, are highly concentrated. You should not use them for small children. It is known that essential oils for cough and hoarseness (for example eucalyptus or peppermint) can cause larynx cramps and shortness of breath in small children. Even pregnant women should be careful when using essential oils.  

How can you recognise a good essential oil?

It is not easy to recognise a good essential oil. It takes a distinct sense of smell to really recognize subtleties such as the subspecies or even the origin of a plant. In any case, the oil should smell as intense as, for example, the leaves of a Tulasi plant (holy basil) that you grind between your fingertips. This is a much stronger scent experience than smelling a tea bag of dried tulsi. An essential oil should never smell of alcohol and it should not leave grease stains. However, there are some essential oils that contain fatty acids. So it is not so easy to determine the quality yourself. This makes the quality certificates for essential oils all the more important.

The quality of essential oils from Amrita Organics

100 percent natural. Our essential oils are natural and not chemically modified. They contain only the oil of the specified parent plants. The oils are not diluted or stretched and they are not discoloured. No synthetic additives, parabens or genetically modified plants are used. The naturally pure compositions consist of mainly biological ingredients and are produced with food emulsifiers. Our suppliers use only natural fragrances, colourings and preservatives. Some, so-called ""Absolues - valuable essential oils from vegetable raw materials, whose content of essential oils is very low and therefore distillation with steam is not worthwhile - were made soluble with alcohol, jojoba or sweet almond oil. In solid state they would not be flowable.

No animal experiments and vegan
All our products are free from animal testing. We use no animal raw materials. The only non-vegan raw material in our products is untreated beeswax from organic beekeeping.

Social responsibility
We attach great importance to a long-term and personal relationship with our suppliers. We put social responsibility into practice. With our Amrita shop we support the global Indian humanitarian organisation Embracing the World. In numerous projects, it works to ensure that people all over the world have the right to education, food, basic medical care and social security.
