Essential oils come from plants. These substances carry the scent and certain therapeutic effects of the plant they were extracted from. They can be extracted from the flowers, roots, seeds, leaves or fruits of a plant and are highly concentrated.

At Clean Cosmetics we only sell organic essential oil, some of which are cold pressed and other steam distilled.

What is the difference between essential oils and organic essential oil?

Non organic essential oils have traces of pesticides and the plants, leaves and fruits and are grown with the use of pesticides synthetic fertilisers, and may have some traces of herbicide residues.

Organic essential oils are free of pesticides synthetic fertilisers, and herbicide residues. Buying organic products supports the organic industry and encourages the use of responsible farming techniques that protect our health and the health of our planet.


Essential oils are most effective when inhaled. This allows essential oil to have an effect on emotions, behaviours and other bodily functions.
