WHY LIVING LIBATIONS?
If you have revelled in the aroma of the rose, the stimulating scent of peppermint, or the verdant essence of cardamom, then your nose knows essential oils.
Essential oils are a liquid concentrate of the aromatic molecules of a plant and have the distinctive aroma and flavour of the origin plant. This nourishing liquid enthusiastically absorbs through the skins membrane to bless mood, mind, and body. Sincere, generous and immeasurable plant life!
Plant oils are botanical miracles. When oils are skilfully combined, the mosaic effect of plant compounds bursts forth with an intelligence and life force that defines every Libations creation.
All essential oils are not equal. Due diligence is needed if you want only really pure and authentic botanical oils. Many marketers use terms such as “Grade A,” “therapeutic grade,” and “aroma-therapeutic grade” to describe their oils. Yet, there is no organization, association, or commission that monitors the purity or quality of essential oils, and there is no universal essential oil grading system in place. Be aware.
All Libations' botanicals are authentic and pure and distilled only from the named plant matter. We call our essential oils Hi-Fi oils due to the distillers' faithful and accurate adherence to the master plant. All of our Hi-Fi oils are distilled from either wild crafted or organically grown plants. Our wild crafted plant matter is collected from the plants' natural habitat in lieu of a farm. We avoid offering botanicals from rare or threatened species of plants growing in the wild to discourage their disruption or disappearance. Our organic oils originate from plants cultivated without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides, or herbicides.
To amplify their potency, our harvesters gather the part of the plant needed for the oil at the ideal time of day for each plant. An ancient and artful distillation method further ensures that the maximum amount of compounds and trace elements are captured in every drop. Most of our oils are distilled with nothing more than pure water.
Legitimate Labeling Beware of the natural-speak catchwords that line the labels of many "health" products: natural, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, pure, non-synthetic, certified organic, ‘therapeutic-grade” and A-grade ratings. (If you say too many words together you may feel as though you should be sitting in a forest playing a harp while drinking herbal tea and discussing your aura with a rabbit!) These phrases are devoid of scientific foundations or official regulations, yet they are frequently used to market products and promises.
Every component of a Libation is an active ingredient. We put the ingredients list on the front of the bottle as an invitation to be read. We make each formula with care and attention, and we want Libations lovers to easily find and understand what is in each product.
We preserve purity, space, and resources by offering full potency products without fillers, diluters, artificial colours, or petrochemicals.
Global Responsibility is a popular marketing trend and for this we are deeply grateful. Living Libations' rigorous standard of purity honours the health and preservation of forests, lakes and rivers, farms, the people who cultivate and distil for us, our families, our neighbours and our clients.
Essential oil yields vary from year to year depending on weather patterns, plant growth and health, and even political stability in some regions. As with wine, some years are just more fine than others. All of these factors influence the availability and the price of the botanicals we use.
