HOW WE ENSURE PURITY
Once the oil is harvested, we conduct rigorous tests to ensure purity. This validates that the oil has not been contaminated or diluted during the shipping process, and that its properties meet our standards. Because essential oils are natural products, there can be very slight variations from batch to batch, but this is part of their beauty. Our chemists perform specific lab testing, including refractive index, specific gravity, colour, odour, gas chromatography, and mass spectrometry. This guarantees consistency, quality, and safety in the end product.
WHY VIOLET BOTTLES?
Essential oils, like most natural products, have a shelf life. To guarantee freshness and potency — and to extend the life of your oils — Ellia bottles our full-sized oils in premium, violet glass bottles. Violet glass offers the greatest degree of protection from damaging UV rays, outperforming clear and amber glass by far. In fact, some essential oils that are stored in violet glass bottles can actually experience enhancement with age, rather than deterioration.
